Getting Traffic to Your Blog
What would be the point of blogging if no one read what you wrote? Ideally we create a blog to share our voice and products online.
My biggest struggle was driving traffic and it was the easy traffic that I was missing for a very long time. It was the traffic that didn’t cost me anything. The traffic that I was missing out was the traffic that I wasn’t willing to create.
What do I mean?
All I had to do was share my post without fear. I didn’t post my blog post for a very long time on my personal facebook page because I was afraid of the comments I would get. I didn’t share with people I knew because I was afraid of their opinion. I let fear keep me from driving traffic and potential customers to my site. I no longer have this fear and my following and traffic to my blog has increased.
