Using The Algorithm To Grow Your Blog
For more on what an algorithm is click here.
I wrote a post recently where I mentioned the WordPress algorithm and how you can use it in your favour to grow your blog and a lot of people in the comments mentioned they would be interested to learn more about it and how one can get on its good side.
The WordPress algorithm is similar to social media algorithms so if you know how to grow on social media a lot of that can be implemented on your blog. The algorithm basically looks for posts that it believes will be popular on this platform. A post that people will interact with.
And most importantly a post that will keep people online and using this platform because at the end of the day the goal for most platforms is to get people to be…

I wanted to write a post for newer bloggers since I get a lot of comments and emails from newer bloggers asking for help. I think it’s a lot more difficult to blog when you first start and there are a lot of things you may not even be aware of yet so this kind of post may help you understand the world of blogging a little better.
Of course, this advice is just the tip of the iceberg and obviously there is a lot more to blogging then just the things I mentioned on this blog. I would recommend checking out my other advice posts that you can view by clicking here.
I think the most important thing when it comes to starting anything new is research. As you may or may not know I’m a history major which means that a huge part of my…

Although there is some amazing advice out there for bloggers here are some pieces of advice I’ve heard often that don’t really work- at least not for me.
Tags– A lot of sites tell you to be very specific with your tags like instead of “food” tag it “lasagna” or “sandwich” but in my opinion this is a really bad idea for multiple reasons. First of all there are a huge number of people who would be interested in food or larger topics in general compared to the number of people interested in a specific thing. By being specific you are losing a lot of traffic. Furthermore, more people are likely to search a general topic on search engines like food rather then a specific one and so again you would be losing traffic.
Niche- A lot of people advice that you stick to one or a minimum amount…

Why Your Blog Has Stopped Growing It's totally normal for your blog to occasionally see a decrease in traffic and growth. It may last a couple of days, weeks or even months. Of course, it feels horrible to experience this and you may not even know why this is happening. Don't worry, you're not alone. [...]

SEO For Dummies
I don’t know about you guys but when it comes to SEO and all things SEO I feel like kind of a dummy a lot of times and as someone who barely knows anything when it comes to technology I really did not even know what SEO was till like some months ago. I’m not going to lie- SEO stuff makes me feel like a dummy sometimes. Even though the majority of the stuff I read about SEO optimization and stuff like that is in English I feel like it’s written in a different language that I don’t know. It took a lot of work for me to figure some stuff out and improve my site and I want to spare people the time and effort if I can in some way so I decided to write this article for people like me who may be a…

Read this super relatable post the other day and thought I would share it with you guys 🙂
My friends say – blogging is a fun hobby. But is it really? Anyone who has been blogging for a few months will know that it can get stressful when the stats aren’t flowing and the likes aren’t coming. I love how blogging has provided me with an outlet for my feelings and thoughts but at the same time I hate how at the end of every week I obsess over not getting a lot of views (considering I really don’t do anything to promote my blog). There are a few recurring thoughts that I think while blogging. These thoughts range from happy to sad to envious to downright evil.
Here are some thoughts that I have pretty often and hope other bloggers can relate –
- After every post – “Why did I get only 60 likes despite having 1000 followers? Did the others follow me and immediately disappear from…
