How is MOA’s blogging reports in 2020?
2020 has been a rough year for everyone around the world. 2020 is a fresh beginning for me; I quit my office job (before the epidemic) and am still doing the freelance translation. It was fantastic, but I need to do something other than work, read, and watch.
I started my website in June and learned everything from scratch – with no assistance from anyone. I learned a lot by doing daily research; I kept researching how to start and build my blog every day. I learned a lot about Pinterest, growing blog traffic, promoting my blog on social media, and, of course, SEO terms and stuff.
It’s really hard to do it alone – especially when you know nothing. I was learning new things every day, and I was starting to connect with other bloggers on Twitter. I’ve made numerous friends from all around the world, and it’s an AMAZING feeling!
I’ve started to publish three articles a week or so, and one of my Pinterest pins has gone semi-viral. I was getting approximately 700+ views per week on my site, which is a significant boost. This has also influenced my blog strategy. I was on the first page of Google for a specific keyword!! YAY!! This encouraged my interest in writing longer, more keyword-focused articles while also focusing more on SEO.
Here are some of MOA’s blogging reports in 2020:
My first blog post of 2020 was published on June 11 with 50+ Amazing Blog Name Ideas. I don’t put any posts about the introduction on my blog. My most popular blog post of 2020 is Increase Your Blog Traffic With These 12 Unique Tips – which was published on July 6. It reaches over 150+ social media shares!
The Keeping A Fresh Old Blog Posts: 4 Strategies that Work post is still on the first page of Google (till this post is published!)
Hence, as of this writing, I have 72 articles published in 2020. Of those 72, I would say 5-9 require more enhancement with additional keywords, images, and content. I am, however, working on optimizing these posts. If you’re curious about how I optimize my posts, check out this SEO guide.
I have been working REALLY hard to increase my monthly pageviews from the very beginning. So, as a new blogger, to reach over 13,000+ page views in 7 months is a great achievement for me!
Since the beginning of launching my blog back in June, I always focus and engaged more on Twitter every day. I managed to get over 1,200+ followers in 2020. And would like to get over 3,000 in 2021!
I use Instagram for personal purposes. I don’t promote my blog on my Instagram. But, for the last 3 months, I pay more attention to my feed and engagements. I do my best to consistently post at least 3 posts per week. And I’m so HAPPY to reach 850+ organic followers and interact more with fellow entrepreneurs/bloggers.
After launching my blog, I’m learning new skills such as creating Pinterest pins and how to layout my profile, etc. If you are stuck with Pinterest then I would certainly suggest checking out my articles here.
I managed to reach 100k monthly unique views before. And I don’t use Tailwind at all – manually pinned daily. However, since Pinterest’s algorithm had changed, it’s going down to 50k and now is 16k. I believe it is also because I don’t spend much time with Pinterest in the last weeks.
At the time of writing, I have 170+ followers although this doesn’t generally lead to more views on Pinterest and is way less critical a metric than it is on other social media sites.
I have had a fast start but a slow end to the year because of lots of things going on in my life but the last months have been so productive because I participated in BLOGMAS 2020 for the first time. And I did it! I finished 25 posts for my blogmas project!
I am more focused on the tasks ahead and looking forward to making more progress this year. I hope this blogging year report gives new bloggers an insight into how hard this is. However, I also hope it isn’t enough to put you off. If there are any things you would like to know about then please let me know in the comments section below.
This year has been a productive blogging year and I can’t wait to see what 2021 brings! I really appreciate my audiences who have helped me make this possible! Happy New Year!
