This week Dr. Tanya has asked our thoughts about this quote from Ester Lauder;
“ I never dreamed of success. I worked for it.”
Nothing comes without a price. The price of success is hard work and sometimes luck also plays a role in it.
To be successful in blogging, you need to put in hard work. When I started blogging in September 2018, I just knew one blogger, Tanya on WordPress. Gradually I found like-minded bloggers to follow. But a blogger doesn’t just follows you if you follow them. You have to have read-worthy content for them to come and read your blog.
In a bit more than three years, I have more than five thousand followers. I’m sure that there are many of these which are fake sites but there and many genuine ones too. I don’t automatically follow people who click follow on my site. If a blogger interacts with me on my blog consistently, I go and check their blog and if what they write interests me, I follow them too.
I have, over three years built a relationship with my readers. Getting to know their names, reading what they share about their lives and being consistent in my interaction with them. In return, they also read my posts, comment on my content and are helpful and supportive.
To me, the real success of my blog has been to build a community where we are like family. We exchange views about different situations in our world with each other, we share our joys and sorrows and whatever exciting thing is happening in our lives.
