My Blogging Platform Journey

Raza Rizvi

Hey guys,

Last week I finally created a blogging platform I've been working on since 24-Jan-2014. I looked for many different options for promoting my website, I tried google adwords which costed me $20/signup . I tried twitter, facebook, bing, stumbleupon but each of them was atleast $5 /sign up.
I discussed this situation with a friend and he told me just to focus on adding quality content on my website and not to expect anything for 1 year.
I have now decided to add 15 articles/day to gain organic traffic. I don't expect to earn a dime for 1 year and my goal is to write 5000 articles in 1 year divided on several blogs on my website. Once I start getting organic and sign ups , the post count would automatically increase but my job is to add 5000 articles no matter what.

The only traffic I am getting right now is from pinterest and reddit which resulted in few signups but it's not enough.
I have met a lot of naysayers who say that I can't do it. I must prove them wrong.

While I am adding content, my other partners will be working on upgrading design and functionality of the platform.
I will keep posting on this thread after every 5 days.

Please keep me motivated :)

So will there be any other form of monetisation on your site?

Anyway, good luck on your journey!

Not right now :) The most important thing for now is to get active users on that website :) Once its in a stable position, I will then think about monetizing :)
if all 5k articles are self written and you gain some good amounts of organic traffic, why not put adsense on it? I earn about 5$ a day on some of my blogs where i dont even have 20 articles on them, 5k would be some nice passive cash.
