I recently started blogging last July 12, 2021, with my chosen hosting partner, Dreamhost. I enjoyed every day with my blog because I love designing, posting, tweaking my site, and sharing my posts for exposure.
However, not every day is my day. So here are the three problems that I have encountered with blogging.
1. Slow Website
I’m not a techy person, but since I am watching series of videos about speeding up a load of a website, I became conscious because mine loads like forever. Many bloggers use free plugins, but most common vloggers recommend the paid plugin to speed up their site.
It is a pain in the ass because I just recently started, and I can’t commit to getting paid plugins for my blog. Maybe if my exposure and page views increased and I started earning, then I guess I can do some upgrades, but now, the only thing that I can do is embrace those free plugins that can still help me and my website. I will make a separate post about it.
2. Blog Exposure
Honestly, it didn’t cross my mind to earn many page views or readers before, but now, I want to reach more page views and readers.
Blogging isn’t a one-time bigshot. Blogging takes a lot of time and effort to grow and develop. I recently just started and aiming for thousands of views? It’s pretty challenging yet not impossible. I have to focus on this to grow. Some bloggers took years before they started earning page views, readers, and money.
I don’t have a big budget for my blog. I’m not yet stable because I have many things that need more priority over blogging. But, it doesn’t mean that my blog will not grow; it will just take a lot of time to develop.
If you are a blogger that wants to invest an enormous amount in it, then I suggest you start growing your blog now. Buy paid plugins that will help the performance of your blog, buy premium themes to have a more professional experience and gain more opportunities, engage with paid blogging courses (but there are a lot of free blogging courses that I’m also using) for you to learn how other bloggers became successful, and a lot more.
These are the problems I encountered, but I’m still doing my best to work on them. Some of my concerns aren’t a big deal because there’s always an alternative solution for every problem that I am experiencing.
