The first 6 to 12 months of a new site are always the slowest, and my traffic and impressions confirmed that.
For the month of September 2020, I received 2 visitors, 33 sessions (totally inaccurate), and 241 impressions (people who see my articles popping up on search results).
The session to visitor ratio is still mostly skewed by my girlfriend who likes to check up on my blog for updates.
While I still don’t have any traffic, I’m a little comforted by the number of impressions I received. In Month 2, I received only 25 impressions, whereas I received almost 10 times that amount in Month 3. I’m not sure where these impressions are coming from, but I’m not really concerned with that at the moment. I’m choosing to focus on just writing and churning out content.
As usual, I’m always slow to monetise, so I have no monetisation up yet. Even if I did, I probably won’t be earning anything.
I managed to (finally) put up 4 posts for the month, which I’m happy with, although I meant to put up 5 posts and play catch up to my slacking off in the previous months.
Looks like I’m going to have to play catch up in October.
Despite September being a really rough month, I tried my best to push through and continue my writing habit. Some days it got really difficult, where I would sit and not write much at all, but at least I tried my best.
On Giving Up
I wouldn’t say that I’m burnt out, but I am a little bored of writing the same content every day.
I’m still far from giving up, though it’s only Month 3. We’ll see what happens in the next few months.
Goals for Month 4 (October 2020)
Again, I aim to write only 4 new articles for the entire month. This includes publishing, which I’m always procrastinating on.
However, I feel that this is becoming more doable as I am shortening my content, which makes writing and publishing a lot easier.
By the end of Month 4, I hope to have 16 articles published.
As always, thank you for reading and supporting this blog.
These niche site updates are a little boring now, but hopefully I’ll have more exciting updates after the 12-month mark. 3 months down, 9 more to go!
