Why Blogging (Successfully) Is Harder Than It Looks…(continued)

by Dodo Charles

The next dilemma: being recognised.

So, the blog has been up and running now for three months, and everything seems to be going great. But what I’m wondering is: how we have been found out about? How are we marketed to the world?

Until recently, I thought that our only readers were our friends… but, as I looked at the audience today, I realised that we have 25 foreign views, from 4 continents! This made me question how they found out about our blog, which we previously thought was very small.

The answer is: random followers.

It makes sense that someone who had stumbled across the blog, quite by chance- or accident -- might decide to tell his or her friends about it. I mean, it is an awesome blog… (just joking).

Here is some advice for all bloggers. Advertise your blog through social media. It will get you recognised.
