How I Got 1000 Followers In Two Months (And How You Can Too)

I was so excited to realize that I had recently reached 6000 WordPress followers which meant I had gained a little over 1000 followers in 2 months. This is the most followers I have gained in two months and I thought I would share some ways in which you can get more followers on your blog too- if you’re interested in gaining followers- if not don’t worry there are lots more posts on this blog with different topics you can check out. Hope these tips help!

Be very active– Blogging is a two way street. You can not expect people to like, follow or share you’re posts if you never do the same. I mean you don’t have to like every post every follower of yours puts out but at least make an effort to reply to comments and read and like some of the posts on your reader from the blogs you follow.

Be genuine– Your followers will be able to tell if you’re genuinely interested in something or are faking it for views and they will always enjoy the posts you are genuine in much more. Try to be genuine and write about things you are truly passionate about.

Edit well– Grammar mistakes and typos are a normal part of writing and it happens to everyone but when your posts have multiple grammar mistakes and a lot of typos it gets hard for the reader to read and breaks your flow. It also makes your blog look less professional and people are less likely to follow it. To get more followers try to take some time to edit your posts so that the reader gets the best experience possible and is way more likely to follow.

Use the right tags– Don’t overdo it with the tags but don’t stop using tags completely either. I would say about 5-10 is the right amount of tags to get more traffic to your blog which means more followers. Another thing is don’t lie in your tags- like for example don’t tag it ‘food’ if the post has nothing to do with food. It’s very annoying when people do that and it only makes people dislike you for lying.

Be organised– In my opinion, this is probably the most important one. Try to be organised and punctual with your posting. If you post randomly whenever you feel like you won’t get the optimum views and follows plus your followers will be confused and won’t know when to check your blog for new posts. After posting more regularly on a daily basis I have seen a huge difference in both my followers and views.

My Experience Of Being An Introvert

The terms introvert and extrovert haven’t been used in my life up until about two months ago. I stumbled across a couple of blogs talking about introversion and decided that I wanted to find a definition. All it says on Google is this
Image result for introvert definition
and for an extrovert it says this
Image result for extrovert definition
I’m not shy, but I’m neither socially confident. This could mean that I am an ambivert (a mix of the two) but in the grand scale of things I’m closer to the introvert’s end of the scale and miles away from the extrovert’s.
Looking into unimportant definitions of peoples – from all of my overthinking – I found that I must be more of an introvert. To me, the definition is a broad term for someone who enjoys being around certain people but finds it awkward to build conversation or firmer relationships with people they have only just been introduced to. It takes a long time to a build a friendship, but when thrown into at a stage in life that you are comfortable at, it’s harder. At school you are told to grow and make friends. You may not be aware at your age about who you are going to be, and when you become an introvert it’s harder to make friends later in life (for me, but I’m not socially awkward. I’m a little bit shy and very unconfident but that’s not a definition of an introvert – that’s just me).
What I just described is a stereotype, and people will be different. If you are more confident to open up or to make conversations when thrown into a new situation, you are more of a extrovert. When I, an introvert, is thrown into these conversations I rely on someone else to start the conversation and I make little statements when I think I need to (or I just wont at all, and I’ll hide).
Introversion isn’t a fear to share your opinion. You may, but in a different medium (like written down words or images, rather than speaking loudly), and I try to use disclaimers so that I don’t try to hurt other people. The word is subtle.
An introvert isn’t perfect. Introverts aren’t good. We are not a different species, we are humans. It’s a way of describing yourself.
Introversion is the opposite of extroversion. Neither are wrong. One is not better than the other. You may not think of these adjectives often, or have identified yourself with either, but it’s something to consider and think about.
One of my greatest regrets is being outspoken, or not thinking before I blurt. It hasn’t hurt anyone but myself.
I want to embrace my introvert and not try to be someone I’m not, as an extrovert. This post is directed more at introversion because that is what I know of better. I know it’s late but Happy New Year! I hope you’ve embraced whatever ‘trovert’ you are.

I have written this post in collaboration with Pooja! We have both written separate posts to put on each other’s blogs. If you wouldn’t mind checking out my blog to see Pooja’s post about How To Have The Best Experience In University as an Introvert!
Erin is such a great blogger and I had such a great experience working with her for this collaboration. I really hope you take some time to check out her amazing blog because I can assure you it’s going to be amazing.

Things I Learnt While Blogging

I’ve been blogging for a bit over 3 years and over the years these are the things I’ve picked up so far. Let me know in the comments if they’re relatable!

It’s harder then it looks- I know a lot of people thinking blogging is easy or “not a real job” but if you’re a blogger yourself you know just how much work actually goes into making even just one blog post let alone starting a blog from scratch. It’s super difficult to come up with new ideas to post about every day/other day/week and to actually keep your audience engaged with the content. It’s also much more difficult these days to get a good amount of traffic/following considering how many blogs there are out there making similar content. Blogging can be very time consuming as I have learnt over the years.

Image result for it's harder than it looks gif

It’s super fun- Even though it is a lot of work it’s also a lot of fun at the same time especially if blogging isn’t your full time job (and even if it is!) because there are so many perks of blogging. You get to meet all these amazing bloggers from all over the world and you get to interact with like-minded people you otherwise would probably have never been able to talk to. Plus, you get to share your opinions, thoughts or even just life experiences with others.

Image result for super fun gif

It’s a great way to start writing- If you want to do something to do with writing at some point in your life blogging is a great way to start out and gain some experience. I think especially if you are under 18 (or not!) it’s a great start because it teaches you so much about writing and helps you figure out your style/niche/genre and it helps you figure out what people like reading. It’s great practice for free!

Image result for writing gif

It’s fun for introverts- As an introvert myself I’m not a big fan of socializing in person (or getting out of my bed…) but blogging allows you to meet people and socialize with people without having to actually meet or socialize with them! It’s great for introverts or people with social anxiety as it gives them a chance to learn to be more social and meet more people with being overwhelmed because sometimes we want to socialize too but we don’t want to leave our beds (I have a staying in bed problem!).

How To Get More Followers On Your Blog For Free

lifesfinewhine

When I started out I had no idea how to get more traffic or followers and it was kind of a tough learning process. I actually almost gave up on my blog and if it hadn’t been for those two followers I had I may have actually given up on blogging altogether which is a scary thought! But thankfully I kept blogging and I eventually started gaining followers and got more traffic. Here are some of the ways I did that:

Reach Out- If you want other bloggers to view your posts and leave you likes, comments and follows you should be doing the same! Especially if you’re just starting out it’s a good idea to check out other peoples blogs- not only will you learn new things from them you’ll also start getting your own name out there. It helps to leave comments because then they’ll notice you and most…

So Much Undone – A Poem

Life is so short it’s important to live it to the fullest!

Opher's World

So Much Undone

 

So short a time to get everything done.

So much undone.

No matter how hard we try

There’s always more.

We leave it unseen,

Unfinished and unknown.

Life is so frustrating.

Even the things we tasted

Will be forgotten.

It is so utterly

Pointlessly crucial.

Could it be that

To know one thing

Is to know it all?

And could that

Be enough?

To not know anything

Is the greatest sin.

An unforgiveable waste

Of the most precious

Thing of all –

A glimpse of infinity.

Opher 29.11.2018

Life is so full and passes so quickly. There is always so much more to do, see and experience. It is never enough.

Yet to experience it is what life is about; to know it is there and to relish it with all your heart.

Life rages.

We have to do, be and life madly. To fill the…

Tips for Dry Skin

As you guys know I have dry skin and I think these tips are super helpful especially with winter around the corner!

Beautyholics101

Hello my loves! As December rolls upon us i thought i would delight you guys with some tips and tricks for dry skin. As i have mentioned before in previous blogs, i have suffered from dry hair, oily hair and dry and oily skin throughout my life. So i understand how hard the struggle is.

Here are some things that i did to help my dry skin feel less bothersome.

I found that after taking showers often times made my skin feel worse afterwards. You would think that all you have to do is put on some lotion. FALSE! There are times when not even lotion would help.

Don’t take long showers:

I know how relaxing a good long 30min shower can feel after a long day, but having your skin in the water for that long really isnt good for your skin. Try and limit your showers to 5-10…

Six Things You Should Never Say To A Blogger

Life with Spina Bifida

Things you should never say to a blogger (4)

When most people visit a blog unless they are bloggers themselves they will never truly understand the amount of work it takes to build a successful blog. For that reason, bloggers work often times are underappreciated because most people think we whip blog posts up in five minutes. It is our job to make blogging look easy and although it may look like we whipped these posts up in five minutes I assure you we did not and it probably took way longer than it appears. Saying comments like blogging is not that hard can come off as rude or insensitive and can really hurt someone’s feelings. Want to show a blogger you appreciate what they do? It is really simple avoid saying these things and you are on the right path to showing your favorite blogger your appreciation without even trying.

You’ll never make money– A very small…
