  1. I feel your pain. I’ve been at this for 3 years and it’s a slow process. This was a great read. I love your writing style and I’ll be watching out for “introvert” social marketing strategies!

  2. Great information and tips. These definitely will help a lot of bloggers to increase their blog traffic. I will follow them myself as well. Thank you for sharing!

  3. This was a really great post to read! It seems that we are at similar points in our blogging journey. I really relate to trimming down on social media. I find it so time consuming and exhausting sometimes but I also know it has its importance. I really only focus on Pinterest and Facebook, and use twitter lightly. Thanks so much for the great post!

    1. This was great to read. It felt like I could have written a lot of it as we started at similar time. So much resonated with how I feel and I have decided to cut back on social media as there are only so many hours in a day.

  4. Congratulations on your $0.05! Because that is better than $0.00, it’s a start.
    I agree with you 100% that the efforts toward creating consistent and high-quality content will be more useful for growth rather than hours spent on Social Media.
    I ‘m also working on that balance and trying to focus on just a few.

  5. I need this one. My interest in blogging is back and planning how to do it seriously. As of now, I am still using a free one because I don’t have time to blog regularly due to my schedule. I am a freelance writer by the way, which is ironic since I write content for others. Anyway, I am getting more motivated now and this helps me a lot. Thank you.

  6. Thanks for a realistic pov of the blogging world. This post is definitely helpful, as I just started blogging two months ago. I feel like I need a roadmap of what to do next and where to focus my energy the most.

  7. This is hands down JUST what I need! And I’m motivated to celebrate small wins and get my stats together like you did. Thank you so much!

  8. I enjoyed reading this post. I launched my blog at around the same time and have also found excuses not to just write the posts. Today for example, I spent time applying to affiliate programs and fixing a glitch on my site. Why is that stuff so much easier? I’m inspired to write a similar blog post like this for my blog in May to help hold myself accountable on growing the blog and goals for the next month. Thanks for sharing!

  9. This is awesome! I LOVE how strategic and organized you are about your content planning. I have 0 ideas how much time I’ve poured into my blog except that it’s just a. lot. 100% looking for introvert marketing techniques….I am the most social on the internet. I have some collabs coming up like a podcast interview and I can feel myself WITHERING inside of my skin at the social pressure. Definitely following you, friend!
