I started blogging in late 2015, and I started with two blogs. One of them was hosted on the free Blogspot domain and it was a tech blog.
My First Blog
It used to be androclinic.blogspot.com and it was basically free. I neither had my own domain name, nor hosting. Maybe if I knew that you can buy a domain name for as low as 99 cents, I would have given it a thought.
How was the traffic like?
Of course, it wasn’t easy in the first month. But after then, the traffic skyrocketed! I started getting international exposure, as smart guys from India and the US were interested in what I was writing. It was a tech blog where I basically uploaded cracked apps, reviewed phones, and shared my opinions on new tech. Maybe I’ll still run a tech blog soon, or maybe not.
It was the perfect space for affiliate marketing and add serving. But I didn’t have the knowledge that I do now. So, I never earned a dime from it.
My Second Blog
My second blog was another attempt at blogging. It was a blog I created to tell more people about Jesus, and it was hosted on the free WordPress (or WordPress.com) platform. I did not buy a Domain name or hosting
. In fact, it is still live today!
Did I make it grow? No, I doubt. I know that I’ll read its contents one day, make edits and work on them. But it would have been perfect and well established if I had invested more into it.
There was no monetization method in view, so I had to quit the project as I was getting gradually broke. I was running out of time and money. So, I had to be ‘sharp’.
My Third Blog
This is where things get interesting hahaha. I bought my first domain name and web hosting!
