5 Things I Wish I Had Known About Blogging

5 Things I Wish I Had Known About Blogging

When I started blogging, I didn’t expect NanaHood to become an overnight sensation, but I did expect it to grow faster than it has. One reason for my slow growth is my lack of understanding of SEO and how Google and search engines work. I’m extremely hard-headed, so I kept telling myself that if I just wrote better, published more often, and learned about social media I would eventually succeed. All those things are important, but no matter how often I publish and how great I write, if readers can’t find me it simply doesn’t matter.

There are many bloggers who figure out these things on their own, but I’m not ashamed to admit that I needed help. Besides redesigning my site, MWI, Inc. is helping with SEO. Bless their hearts, they have their work cut out explaining it to me. But they are patient, and I am determined. Patience and determination can turn a good blog into a great one.

NanaHood.com is a work in progress… but then again, so am I!

Now tell me about your blog. What’s something you wish you had known when you started blogging?
