The October Daily {4}: As A Newbie…


Share your experience during your first few weeks/months in blogging.

This is a rather ironic challenge for today since my Blog is not even a full 3 months old.  I’m still considered a newborn in the Blogger world or a Newbie as I’ve come to call myself.  I started my Blog July 19th and it has been a fun and at times crazy ride.

When I started, I’d already done at least 6 months of research and networking trying to be sure that this was something I could handle as well as making sure I could have and maintain connections within the right areas of the Blog world.  The day my domain went live I was so excited I didn’t know what to do.  I just sat there looking at MrsTeeLoveLifeLaughter.com within the search area of my browser and hitting enter over and over.  I was in shock that it was actually searchable.  There was nothing there yet but it was MINE!

I opted to go with my own domain after a lot of research and a 30 minute online chat with a WordPress representative about the Pros/Cons of hosted domains.  I have never regretted my decision.  Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t easy.  Yes, I had my own domain but I knew close to nothing about HTML Codes and designing a site to look like more than something right out the box.  I spent many hours online doing searches and going cross-eyed trying to remember coding I learned from back in High School before the internet was even up and running (yes I’m that old).

Eventually I started to get the hang of it enough that I was even able to write a post 10 Ways To Keep Your Reader’s Scrolling with tips and guides on how to make your site grab and keep your Reader’s attention.  That has been one of my Top Posts and received over 20 comments.

Overall, I feel my experience in Blogging this far has been one full of learning and building friendships.  I have met some truly wonderfully Ladies (and a few Gents) and wouldn’t trade them for anything.  I’m even a part of an awesome group of fellow Newbie’s on a Facebook Newbie Blogging Group where we go to support and share our questions, posts and even our frustrations.

When I look back to where I started even as a Newbie, I feel that I have come a long way and I am excited to see where my journey will take me…

    I can't believe you are only 3 months in! You definitely had me thinking it has been a lot longer than that! You go girl! I agree that your own domain name is better. After being on 2 blogspot domains and seeing all the things that I could be doing with WordPress, I'm so excited to be migrating. Of course when I realized this, my laptop was in repair (and still is), so I want to wait to do it until I have my own laptop so I can work the migration while the house is asleep at night and I have my me time! xoxo

      Yes ma'am it'll be 3 months on the 19th. I'm so happy I made the choice to do it though. I love it.

      I'm so excited for your switch. I love your blog as is but I know you want to make it more 'you' 😀

    It's amazing how much time you dedicated in researching before having a blog. Most people (including me) would just sign up for a blog and say 'now what?', then eventually learn in the process. This is perhaps why you've come up with so much in such a short time. 🙂 Thanks for sharing! And oh, I totally agree on the captcha thing..haha. 😀

    Wow! I can't believe your site is only 3 months old! It looks like you have been here for years :). I have been blogging almost 2 months and mine looks nothing like this… I will be back often. It looks like I have a lot to learn from you!
