Today it is 6 year since I launched this blog
Today, November 28th. it is 6 years since I launched this blog. I can believe I have had this blog for 6 years already. It feels like it was just yesterday I started blogging.It has been a fun project for me and I have learned a lot about a lot of different things. I have learned a lot about WordPress, SEO, link-building, AdSense writing posts in English and a lot of other stuff. I have also learned a lot of interesting people on my way, being a blogger. I have really learned a lot as a blogger over the years and when I look back on some of my first posts I can’t stop thinking: “What was I doing, writing that..?” 🙂 It just shows me how much I have learned and how much better I am, writing posts today. There is of cause still a lot I can work with and be better at, but that is also what makes this fun. There is always something new to write about and there is always something to improve on a blog.
My most popular post the last 12 months
Sometimes it can be a good idea to look back in what have worked well in the past as a blogger. Looking at my most popular post for the last 12 months I can see that writing reviews and writing How-to guides has been working very well for me. That is something I will have to keep on doing.

How to stay motivated as a blogger
I have seen a lot of bloggers that are not in the game for more than a year or two. There can be a lot of reasons for that. For some of them they are simply just starting their blog for the wrong reason. Maybe they think they can easily earn a lot of money on a blog. Others don’t have a plan or an idea of what to blog about. In my opinion, you need to blog about something you a passionate about. Otherwise your motivation will soon be gone. For me this blog is just a hobby project. I have a normal job that pay my bills. I am not in this for the money and I don’t make much money on this blog. On the other hand, I only post when I feel motivated for it and have a good idea for a post. Sometimes I take a break for maybe a month where I don’t post anything. That is okay for me and that is why I am still motivated for having this blog.
