How I Started
I am Mennonite yet I love tech. It might sound strange but yes a believer of Jesus can be techy too. Prior to my personal blog about being a Mennonite, I have a tech blog. I write reviews about gadgets that I find useful. I always keep in mind the interest of my website visitors. I find writing soothing and the thought of sharing valuable knowledge makes me feel good inside. I started by doing something I love so the whole journey became a part of me.
Setting Up My First Website
I don't really want to make things complicated for you so let me share simple things I did when I was setting up my first website. To build a website is like building a business. You need people to see it. It's not enough to have good contents, you need to buy website traffic. However, you don't want to overspend either. Research on cheap website traffic and where to get them. Your goal should be two things: share useful knowledge based on your niche and drive traffic to your site.
I had my downtimes
It was not always about rainbows and butterflies, I had my downtimes. There were times that I'm having doubts whether my work holds any meaning. During the first months, I had no visitors. I kept on researching on what things I should be doing. I learned that I need to buy traffic for website or else my website would be for nothing. I'm still doing what I do probably because I am too hard-headed.
Just Enjoy The Journey and Keep Learning
I believe that work will be like play if you enjoy what you are doing. There will be hardships for sure. But if you believe in what you do, don't stop. Enjoy and keep learning more.
