They say you need 3 years to establish your blog. In fact, that is a quote you can count on.
Take 3 years time, be patient. Fill your brand new blog with content constantly, comment on every feedback, keep your plugins up to date, work hard & do not resign. It is worth it.
Of course, even after these 3 years, you will not have thousands of visitors per day. But you will have your loyal readership and this will be worth the effort. With millions, even billions of websites available, it is a good cut to be thankful for even 50 of those readers every day. It may sound a little but it is definitely not. No matter what they say, give a damn.
Well, keep that thing going!
All the best,
