How to grow your blog successfully in 2020

How to grow your blog successfully in 2020 – This morning I woke up to a message from a friend who said: ‘who reads your blog?

I have been waiting nervously for the traffic and income to increase for more than two years. Creating a blog was one big step, getting readers was a whole other challenge. This message came in hard, but it also inspired me to share my tips and tricks to grow a blog-following in 2020. ‘Blogging is overrated’ ‘The work is not worth it’ ‘It is to late to start’ ‘Nobody is going to notice’ Twitter Twitter is your best friend if you want to grow your blog!

Sweater – ASTR the Label I think we can all relate to the fact that 2019 flew by. Gone before I know. I thought it was about time to reflect. 2018 was a year of growth for me: I started eating vegan, exercising every day and I started to live life for myself. Which made me truly happy with who I am and who I want to be. However, 2019 trough some things on me that had a lot of influence on my stress levels.
