Blogging: Year Seven

Photo by Genaro Servu00edn on

WordPress recently informed me that I’ve been blogging for seven years. Can’t say I’m surprised. It feels like I’ve been doing this forever.

Forever, but not well.

Strictly amateur hour here, folks. You won’t find any pop-ups asking you to join my mailing list. I don’t have one.

If I’m doing anything right at all, it’s thanks to Hugh’s tips and tricks.

According to Nick G. over at techjury

  • There are over 600 million blogs on the internet.
  • 7.5 million blog posts are created every single day.
  • The average blog post has 2,520 words.
  • Bloggers take just under 4 hours to write a post.
  • Blog readers spend an average of 37 seconds reading a post.
  • Perez Hilton is the highest paid blogger in the world, earning $3.5 million a month.

I’m no Perez Hilton 🙂

    1. Thanks, Brian. Most of the blogging advice I’ve read says to go the educational route, that readers want to learn something from your posts. I figure if they leave my blog with a smile, I’ve done my job 🙂


  1. Happy blogiversary, Aimer.

    Here are a few more blogging facts –

    Over 81% of bloggers who want to make some money out of blogging, will never earn more than £100.

    Eight out of ten new bloggers will give up blogging within the first year.

    Only 20% of your followers will probably ever read and comment on some of your blog posts.

    People, you get to know through blogging, will suddenly disappear without any reason.

    So well done on making it to seven years.

    And thanks so much for the mention.

    1. Thanks, Hugh. Can’t believe I’ve made it this long. Stubborn, I guess.
      You’re welcome. I count myself lucky that your blog is one of the first I stumbled across. Blogging for Dummies. You should have T-shirts made 🙂

  2. I might have asked this before…. I recall that you made and self-published your own novels. I’m looking for some kind of software that will put pages of text into a book format for printing. What did you use?
