The initial excitement that I had when I first started blogging almost 6 years ago has waned to almost non existant now.
Blogging to an audience takes a certain commitment and discipline. It should be kept active with new posts almost everyday for people to follow you and interact with you which in turn will make Google give a piece of their SEO love.
Honestly blogging with little to no following feels worthless. But hey, that’s how every famous site was born.
Reddit founders admit they created multiple accounts and posted content themselves to make Reddit not look like an abandoned wasteland without any users. As of February 2018, Reddit had 542 million monthly visitors (234 million unique users), ranking as the #3 most visited website in U.S.
The traffic to my blog has taken a serious blow due to it being dormant for the most part in the last couple of years.
Honestly feeling like giving up now and save the money which I would have spent on hosting and domain name. It totals to about INR 5000/yr.
Anyways I can take a full backup and go live anytime I want. Hopefully with a new domain name.
Or maybe I can even sell it.
I’ve spent ungodly amounts of time in starting, designing and running this blog – especially in the initial years. Roughly 4-5 hours were spent blogging, creating images, social media & other forms of marketing and rewriting articles taken from other sources :P
So far it’s a very mild success that I’ve seen from this blog but I guess the time has come because I don’t think I can commit time anymore (or can I? Yup… still contemplating).
May be I will kill my first serious online venture and a new venture will begin leaving the past to the past.
I think I didn’t take up other stuffs to do due to feeling tied up to this one… but also not progressing anywhere.
