3 Months into Blogging: Amazing Lessons Learned

Today is extraordinary for me because I started my blog three months ago. I remember I had no idea what exactly I was doing, but I just wanted to start from somewhere.

My idea was vague, and I wanted to clear it out on the way as I increased my knowledge in blogging.

It was thrilling. I felt timid to publicly post my thoughts, opinions, and knowledge. But I knew something for sure - this time, I would not allow myself to give up.

3 Months into Blogging: What I've Learned

I have started four times but needed more motivation to progress in blogging. Whether it was for the lack of knowledge or for the time-consuming tasks, I could not make writing a priority.

In this post, I will share what I've been through and how you can apply my positive blogging experiences as a new blogger. Indeed, you should also learn to avoid the negative things that hold you back.

The 1st Month: The Beginning


What usually happens in the first month? You look at things you find out about blogging with eyes wide open. So many new things happened in the world, new software, and new opportunities for businesses to grow. Where was I all that time, and how did I miss it? Sleeping?

The excitement then comes. If it's so convenient to do business with all these helpful tools, why don't I speed up the process and work as quickly as possible to get the desired results? It happened to me, and it happened to my partner when she joined me.

I bet it happens to other bloggers because I encounter posts on social media stating how much easier it is to blog nowadays with the endless ideas AI can give you. It's a tremendous help, and we, as bloggers, should take full advantage of all available helpful resources.

Signing Up

Yup, lots of these. A new Facebook page, a Pinterest Business account, practically all business accounts on social media that you can handle. Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, you name it. You need to sign up for their business versions if you have the time to commit to them.

Why Business versions? Because you want to make money with your blog, right? And how are you going to make it? By gaining knowledge of what is going on with these numbers. You learn more about analytics, traffic, and your audience every day.

It's a whole new universe, jumping into a new platform, and then you only know some of the options you can use. What you do is Google search and find things you want to achieve on social media and read about it in the platforms' help centers.

Active Learning

At this point, you don't know much. You need to picture a clearer idea of what exactly is going on. Reading is the key, or watching videos on the topic. Whatever suits you best will bring you closer to the primary goal.

Even if you don't know how to learn, it's inevitable. You will encounter new things as you develop your blogging skills, which will help you be more productive in the long run.

The amount of new information can cause confusion, frustration, and even stress. It's important to realize at this step that the situation is temporary. Once you learn more about blogging, you will set your goals and schedule, and your work will become more organized.

Connecting with Other Bloggers

You will want to meet other people like you, who have their goals, dreams, and similar pursuits. They can give you ideas, inspire you, you can collaborate - whatever you are open to.

Finding your blogging community is a vital step, not only to improve your skills but also to avoid feeling isolated. When you know others have similar struggles as you, it's much easier to embrace them.

During the first month, your new buddies will be new, and your communication will still not stabilize. That will happen later when you get to know them better.

The 2nd Month: Upgrading

Taking Courses

During the second month, you already have a rough idea of what you want to achieve, which becomes clearer with time. For example, you know that you want more traffic, but might still not know how you will achieve it.

You might know that you want to show up on the first page of Google, but the question is how? You soon realize that most of your questions are things that other people before you have done, and this information is available online in a structured form.

Whether it is a webinar or course, you can find what you are looking for with a bit more searching. That's when you learn that search engines are your best friends for answering many of your questions.

Stabilize Connections

You will start expanding your network. It will be clearer to you who is who, and you will want to pick the type of people you want to work with.

If you are blogging as a business, you want to choose people that you can work with seamlessly to avoid unnecessary stress. If you don't like someone, you don't need to collaborate with him. The idea is to surround yourself with positivity and goal-oriented people.

At first, you will not recognize the right opportunities, but slowly you will set your criteria to help you decide which blogging offer is worth it.

Connect Your Domain

 Having a domain name is a step you can take at any time during blogging. I have seen websites that use a free domain name (like Blogger or WordPress) and are incredibly successful in making money.

I have also seen people who start by buying a domain name and then do everything else. It's up to a personal preference. I bought mine during my second week of blogging because I realized it would open many doors for me.

Connecting my domain name with my website was a true hassle for me. The reason was not that it was difficult, but it was new for me, and I had no patience to wait until everything was updated.

I remember being very frustrated about it. The good news is, you do this only once (hopefully, unless you make any major changes to your website).

The 3rd Month: Rapid Growth

Explore New Ways to Monetize

Once you have created your daily routines as a blogger, you will start getting interested in more ways to earn from your efforts. You can decide to sign up for different programs, like affiliate marketing, share revenue websites, or YouTube.

Starting on all money-making channels from the very beginning is possible, but it requires a team. If you are on your own, my advice is to focus on ways that you find pleasurable and fun and leave the rest for later.

It's a question of priorities. The work to be done takes time, and concentration on one task at a time is better for your efficiency.

Start Looking for Ways to Optimize

You have been blogging for long enough now to discover it involves a lot of repetitive tasks. It's natural to start thinking about making the same thing, but quicker.

How you can achieve this depends on your resources. Many repetitive tasks can be performed by a paid tool. Another option is to hire someone to update your blog, for example.

A great tool I use in my daily work that saves me time is TextExpander. I type very fast, but moving my fingers over the keyboard all day is exhausting. TexExpander saves me many keystrokes, and ultimately I have more time for other stuff.

Growth in Many Aspects

You have grown in knowledge, experience, and character. Blogging requires many new skills, and you made it so far without breaking. Well done!

You start noticing your traffic improves, and your domain name gains more authority. Your social media accounts become more lively. People start contacting you more and asking you questions, and your subscribers increase.

Seeing these positives is rewarding as you know that all your hard work is finally giving results. You can continue improving your writing, services, and expertise from here.

Every blogger has his own unique journey. There are no strict rules or set of tasks that you need to do during your first three months. The separation above is based on my personal experience, and it is aimed at new bloggers to get an idea of the first steps they need to take.

Blogging requires effort and dedication, but if you love what you do, the chances you are successful are greater. We all have our talents and advantages, and it's for the best of everyone to utilize them and help others with our work.

I love blogging, and when I turn back to see myself three months back, I would still do the same and start writing. It's an inspiring and fulfilling experience, and I invite you to join by creating your own blog.
