I visited some blogs today to learn more about blogging as I consider myself a novice at blogging. Many well-known blogs teach about how to’s – driving traffic to blogs, monetizing, SEO, marketing, etc., etc.. No doubt they are good and informative. But I guess I need time to digest those articles as they are quite technical in nature. What I like most are blogs whose niches are about writing contents.

I have learned that I failed in my former blog, Areka mainly due to lack of contents and my eagerness to become a well-known blogger. I realized that I cannot be another Darren Rowse (Problogger) or Seth Godin. I cannot pretend to be somebody. I am not created for that. I just have to be what and whom I am. Just be myself.

Never mind that it takes years for me have a successful blog. I have to take one step at a time. As the popular Chinese saying, “A Thousand Mile Journey Begins With The First Step.” I have taken the first, and I know that the following steps will not be an easy route. I will persevere and keep learning.

Please wish me success. Thank you.
