5 Things I’ve Learned About Blogging

I’ve only been blogging for a couple of month so far, so I am very much still new to all of this. And when I say “new”, I mean haven’t got a scooby doo what’s going on.

SEO, Moz, DA, Yoast, PR, Self Hosting, Crowd Sourcing, Adsense…seriously, the list of stuff I don’t get just goes on and on!

So while there is still so much more to get my head around, here is what I HAVE actually learned so far.

Did she see it coming? Ok, I say ‘people’, but really it was just you ladies. You fella’s out there really couldn’t care less. The extent of your interest was “nice one”.
