When I started blogging in June 2007 I really didn’t know how to manage a blog or even how long I can keep writing blog entries. Like many people, I tend to start something that interests me at the time, but then get bored and move onto something else. With that thinking, I started using Blogger since it required no financial commitment, just time. After a year, I discovered that I did like to manage a blog, so I switched to a self-hosted WordPress blog, and haven’t looked back.
Over the past seven years of managing this blog I have learned many lessons, and have experienced many facets of not only blogging but websites, in general. I have made mistakes, and learned from those mistakes, but have also enjoyed a few successes. I have blogged about both the mistakes I have made and the successes I have achieved, so now I feel I should give an update on the lessons I have learned about blogging.
