7 Lessons I Learned from Writing Every Day for 100 Days
First of all, thank you so much for such a positive response to this blog. You have been an incredible audience, and I appreciate every one of you.
I have been receiving countless suggestions- please keep those coming! Your valuable feedback means the world to me.
I am excited to announce that this is my 100th post (man, time flies fast, huh?) and I would like to share my experiences with you all. After getting a positive response from the ‘10 Things I learned from my 50 first posts‘, I am excited to add more to my and your experience by sharing 7 lessons I learned from writing every day for 100 days. Let’s start, shall we?
1. SEO: Search Engine Optimization
I did my SEO research, it stands for Search Engine Optimization. It helps in gaining more eyeballs and helps your content to be found. Using the correct heading, sub-heading is crucial to reach your target audience. I am using ‘Yoast SEO’ at present. SEO helps in improving writing skills by suggesting to you on several passive voice sentences, transition sentences, whether there is an inbound link, images description, and so on. Try it out, you will learn more.
2. Learn to Redo
After understanding SEO, I have understood the importance to increase organic search on Google. I did all the work again after making several corrections in my blogs. Can you imagine going through 76 blog posts again and editing every single detail on it? Yes, it is annoying, but ultimately it helps in improving the google search, and you learn a lot.
Honestly, I love what I do, so to remain more motivated on my blogging habits I started reading self-improvement books. I will not say reading, because I started listening to self-improvement books. Due to the extreme time crunch, with a regular job, household chores, looking after my daughter, and so on. I don’t get time to sit quietly and read a book (its a dream now). So, what I do is, I installed the StoryTel app on my iPhone, and with the apple AirPods, I can listen to audiobooks while I am in the kitchen doing dishes, cooking, cleaning, etc. Trust me, its fun to add more to your knowledge through others’ experiences.
One of my favorite audiobooks so far is “The 5 AM Club” by Robin Sharma. I love this book, I would recommend you all to try listening to this book. It motivates you to develop long-lasting habits. “Own Your Morning, Elevate Your Life” One of the famous quotes from this book. It suggests several ways of managing time and improving focus by following the 20/20/20 formula, and it works.
Well, I learned how to send mail campaigns to my subscribers. Check out my first campaign here, I got a positive response from this as well. It will be hard to explain how I learned it. That’s a story for another day. Moreover, sometimes you just have to jump in the pool to learn how to swim, That’s what I did, there is no one training me on blogging. I just prefer to learn by doing mistakes, that doesn’t mean I can’t help you. Feel free to reach out, and I can guide you with some tips & tricks!
5. A Great Heading goes a long way
This I learned from www.answerthepublic.com, on this website you can ask a question and find the most searched question on the topic you are planning to write about. It allows you 2 free searches every day. Do try it out, its fun to explore the type of questions people ask and give you ample amount of ideas to write about.
6. To-Do List
I have also started maintaining a to-do list which helps me remain focused throughout the day. It makes you feel triumphed when you achieve any task or goal for the day. I am a teacher by profession and I am involved in several mini-projects like being an economics expert at Chegg. Apart from doing the household chores and looking after my almost 1-year-old daughter (her birthday is on the 29th of this month), I somehow manage to improve myself by reading more about the teaching profession.
7. Being Consistent is the Key
Whatever you do, you should aim to remain consistent on it for at least 66 days. This I learned from Robin Sharma’s book because that’s how many days it takes to turn a new routine into a habit. As you can see, I have written for the past 100 days, And what I’ve discovered is that I like helping and sharing my knowledge to all over the world. It’s like a dream to see people from all over the world visiting this tiny little website and reading about what I have to say. Thanks, you guys!
