    Thank you to @Stitches and Burns for the inspiration.

    I have had my blog for around 5 months now and I'm at around 13 articles. My total unique visitors since then:

    STATS:
    Views: 3,202
    Visitors: 1,185
    Likes: 0
    Comments: 30

    My goal is to achieve 10,000 monthly visitors by the end of this year. I want to be able to work on full time blogging by 2021. The reason why I created this journey thread is that when I acknowledge my journey to people, I am more motivated.

    I will be updating my daily stats for that boost of motivation.

    What I'm working on:
    - publishing a new article by the end of today
    - figuring out why my data is not showing on Google Search Console
    - disavowing my negative backlinks that's currently messing with my SEO ranking

    Hello! Yes, I am promoting through Quora and Reddit. I am learning SEO to get traffic from Google. Although I purchase terrible backlinks from a non-reputable seller, my SEO is negative. I need to disavow my links first.

    EDIT: When I first made my page, I was refreshing my page a lot to find errors. About 300 are actually from me.

    Sharing on Quora and Reddit. I usually get 1 from Search Engine per month which is exciting for me. I am learning SEO to increase that. I also get some from Facebook but I can't tell where exactly it's coming from on Facebook. I'm assuming someone shared my article.

    You mean a Google Search Console? I registered my website a day ago and still haven’t received any data. I’m trying to remove the negative backlinks because it’s messing with my SEO score.
    I’ll make you proud :)

    Congratulations and good luck on your journey. I love blogging because it's mostly passive income as long as you stay in Google's graces. Anyway thanks for the mention and I'm glad to know that my blogging journey inspired and motivated you. Just keep fighting and you will be rewarded in the long run.

    Notes: I deleted one article and wrote a new SEO worthy article. Holy shit. My new article that I posted received 4 people from Search Engine. This is actually exciting fucking news for me because I hardly get these type of traffic!

    I’m manually adding links through forums every day to help my sites SEO ranking. Today is my dad’s birthday, so hopefully I can submit another article by tonight.

    Good luck on your journey. I am on a similar journey. 12 articles published in a 7-8 months old site. Traffic is around 90 per month from google.
    - What kinds of articles do you write? Reviews or How tos?
    - How are you planning to monetize? Ads or affiliate?

    Good luck on your journey. I'll be following it.

    RE Quora promotions: How do you know which questions to answer? ie., existing # of page views or follows?

    Also, don't neglect FB groups. I get most of my traffic from that source

    Yes, I'm trying to provide all high-quality content and unique articles. Thank you for your advice.
    Thank you! I'll need that luck.
    Yes, and people are able to read some things in my perspective.
    Thank you!
    I just write about anything marketing related I guess. I niche is still really general but I'm trying to make it more specific for a more targeted audience. I am planning on doing both affiliate and ads.
    You just answer any questions related and use your link as a source. Don't be spammy. Quora users want high-quality unique answers. You don't want to get flag.
    I wish you the best :)

    Congrats on the current success. I'm on a similar journey, but I might be doing too many things at once. I'll keep watching your journey.

    Notes: I'm trying to figure out how to increase my rankings. I'm focusing more on SEO. I am waiting for Google now to disavow my terrible backlinks. I also fixed some of my articles today to make it SEO Worthy. I'm really impatient for the result, which is why I'm trying to push in as many quality content articles as possible.

    @omnirand I wish you the best on your journey. I'm still struggling but hopefully, one day when I look back at this thread, I will see how far I've come.
