How do I check my Blog?

I used to be surprised to see this question from many beginner bloggers. I helped in guiding many people in starting a blog. One query was common amongst all. When numerous people started asking, “How do I check my Blog?” I realized not everyone has got technical skills and computer knowledge. People enter into the blogging field from different fields, so it is possible for them to not have the right knowledge of simple things too.

I wrote the blog but where is my blog?

Here, is a complete guideline to find your blog on WordPress. It will help other bloggers who are not on WordPress too. Because the steps remain almost similar.


Step 1 :

You have written the blog and published it and now you want to share it. 
You want to view the display of your blog on the desktop and the Mobile.
Once you are logged in WordPress, you will see the page same as this image:
If you are unable to view this image, zoom your screen or right click your mouse and choose “Open image in new tab”. ( Do the same for all the images in this post.)


You can notice on the left side, there are two buttons.
My Sites and Reader.
Click on My Sites.

My Sites Reader

You will see the items the same as the above image on the left side of the page. On the right side, there will be names/list of your blog.

 

Step 2 :

There are two ways of viewing the site, the easiest way is this one. 

In the left top side of the page, Right-click your mouse on the button View Site.
You can now choose the option from the right-click list.
You can either click:
Open link in new tab 
OR
Open link in new window
OR

If you are using Chrome and want to open your site in incognito mode,then
Open link in incognito window

This will direct you to your site display. The image below is my site view. 

Site URL


I have marked red color drawing on the bit upper side. I will explain it in Step 4. 


Step 3:

The second way of viewing your site is :
Click directly on View Site button.
You will see your site similar to the below image.

My Sites


You can choose from the top bar, whether you want to see the display for Desktop, Tablet, Phone, Search & Social. No need to break your head more, simply choose Desktop. You can check other views later once you learn the steps in this guideline.

Options to View

 

My Sites

Click on Visit Site button on the right top side of the page.
You will be redirected to your site display.

URL View

Step 4 :

What is your site URL and how do you share it with others?
How will you check your site anytime?
Look at this image:

URL View

The red mark part is your site URL. It is also known as the address or link of your site.
1] Just click on that link.
OR
Right-click and choose Select all
2] Right click mouse and choose Copy option.
3] Go to any of your social media or other sites you want to share.
Right-click mouse and choose Paste option.

Extra Step:

If you see same or similar buttons anywhere on your site, usually footer or sidebar of the site, then click on the button to share on the social media sites. You can directly click on any of the buttons. If you are already logged in to the respective social media then it will directly share on your profile.
In case, you are not logged in, the window will prompt asking you to log in.
After the login, the post will be ready to be shared on your site.

Bloggers around the World

Bloggers around the world

I am writing this post based on what I observed. I previously wrote this article focusing mainly on Indian bloggers. This time I am updating it by taking into consideration the bloggers around the world.

Blogging has turned out to be the most common thing all around the world. It is also a taboo that only an unemployed people write blogs. But, the truth is even an employed ones love blogging. Earlier, bloggers were considered as only writers platform. Over a period of time, it has turned into a writing personal life. The usage of blogging platform for each one of us differ as per our requirements. Some of us write here to share thoughts or experiences while rest may write related to teaching or business purpose. 

Indian Bloggers

Indian Bloggers

It does not feel good to write that most of the Indian bloggers are not really good at appreciating other’s blogs. I can clearly say most of the Indian bloggers are lacking exposure. A few years back, I came in touch with USA & UK group and I happen to understand how hard they are working for getting readers to their blogs. There were few more Indians but, it was really disesteeming to see how those Indians were only interested in sharing their own blogs and not going through others. Everyone started complaining about Indian members and yet these fellows shamelessly continued to exist in the community to get readers only for their own blogs. 

Back in those days, Indian bloggers were not doing it well. But in 2019 some of the bloggers are participating. Although the ratio is very low. If there are 10 Indian bloggers then only 4 will actively participate.

 

 

(From the observation of a group which was specifically created only for Indian Bloggers and no one else was allowed from another country) When the technique of connecting Indian Bloggers was being started; out of thousands of bloggers, hardly 4 or 5 were actively involved. There are good helping Indian bloggers and definitely, we don’t want to defame them because of some irresponsible bloggers.

In my previous paragraph, I praised other countries in the World. What is the statistics of 2019?

Slowly, others are also failing to help fellow bloggers. Even with a clear idea of the Blogging Planet, not everyone is able to keep up the task of reading others work.  We are now able to find that some are participating in the reciprocation but not really completing it . We can see people are just skipping away with the lies of already reciprocated. 

SEO is hard to break

SEO is hard to break


We are all aware of the changing SEO techniques and analytics going around. People who were gaining profit through their site are now unable to see the same level of returns. SEO techniques have expanded. The number of blogs in today’s stats is greater than the previous data. Because of this reason, it becomes difficult to stand your article on the first page of search engine. The ranking is unpredictable now unless you have a unique topic. So, everyone definitely needs multi ways of bringing traffic to their blog.
The tougher the competition to break the SEO rank, the toughest it is to maintain the connections through social media network. 

Networking is vital

Networking is vital

Blogging is not at all easier than sayings. We need to spend time thinking and writing. The next step is to follow up on the SEO guidelines. Then, the person has to start connecting with the people. We can not just post and leave. No one is going to see unless it’s shared. No one is going to see unless it’s shared 100 plus more times. The content should be the best. But, just writing content won’t work anymore.

You need to connect with people to let them know why they should read your articles. You have to read other people blogs so that they read yours. You need to credit other people work so that they think of giving feedback to your blogs too. Unfortunately, the sharing platform has reduced. People are not reading articles on previous shared platforms. Some of the platforms have also started charging for uploading a blog sample. Presently, sharing is mainly limited to Pinterest, Instagram, and Twitter to receive a good response.  

 

 

 

Respect other’s work

Respect other's work

As mentioned earlier bloggers are the writers, exception sellers and photographers.  As per my observation, we are failing as writers community. Somewhere in the competition world, we have lost the true meaning of a writer. Thousands of bloggers have moved to their own site. Of course in the world of competition, who don’t want a personal site. But, amidst lies few bloggers who can’t afford Domain & Hosts. Hence, they proceed with a free site.  Such free sites usually lose the ranking in SEO.

Every blogger wants to get attention from readers but, are they giving back the same attention to other bloggers?  Are the contents appropriate or it’s only about copying someone else’s content? We see people who write gibberish, hence, do not hold any meaningful content but still do their best through Marketing Strategy.

As bloggers, one must be open to appreciations as well as criticism. Many writers fail to accept criticism. They find it aggressive. Critics will help us improve and leaving a true feedback will help the person to come up with a better article. We need to uplift each other to achieve our goals. 

Around the world, bloggers are usually amongst these 7 categories:

1] To earn only through Ads, content is secondary

 

 

earn money by writing
mon1

Yes, everyone needs to earn. Blogging through affiliate links, sponsorship and ads display is helpful for many people. Blogging can definitely act as the only source or as an alternative for earning purpose.

 

2]To get fame

I want to be famous

Some fellows have misunderstood that blogging is one of the steps to become popular.

3]To get readers only for own blog

Just Read Me

 

4]Let everyone read my diary

 

coffee and diary

5]Blogging is what anyone can do so I will also do it. Write anything !!!

ANYTHING

6]Writing is what I love to do and don’t care whether I get readers or not.

idc meme

 

7]And there are another bunch of people who think once they have started blogging, they can publish their own book too. P.S. publishing book is a good thing as long as you are not naive & your content attract readers.

 

As the quote says,“If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that”

 

I am thankful to the people who had been taking out time from their busy schedules and genuinely helping other writers with their honest feedback.

TIPS: 

“GIVE & TAKE”

The amount of time you spend in sharing your links on all social platforms, try to give half of that time to read other’s blogs too.


” A coterie of writers can lead to a better writing world.” Everyone has to come forward and be involved actively in encouraging others by keeping everyone’s work alive.

Beware Of Evil Bloggers

Millions of bloggers are consistently working hard to be on the top of the SEO market. While many are trying to build up good communities and helping each other out, we cannot avoid vipers. Every industry has bad and good people so does the blogging platform.

BEWARE OF EVIL BLOGGERS.png

Reviewers

When you ask for a review of your site, notice who is giving you the honest feedback.

Whenever you ask for a feedback and suggestions for your website, majority of viewers won’t spend their time on visiting your site. The genuine people will spend few minutes and give you some suggestions as well as critics to improve. They will appreciate your work and wish for your growth.

Few people may give you unnecessary critics because they don’t want any blogger climb up the growth chart. The critics have the intention of demotivating you. Analyze their comment and observe, if there is really any need of those improvements to be done on your site. Share the review with few people to check whether they agree with it. Sometimes people will not check your blog explicitly, but throw up bad feedback. Remember people are watching you in the review and promotional groups. Such bad reviews will put wrong impression about your site on others too. You will eventually lose a good networking in the respective community.

Shameless Copy Cat

Some bloggers will straight away copy and paste your blog post on their site. In case, they have already done good marketing of promoting their site better than you, you may be considered plagiarized by readers. Because your statistics will be lesser than the copycat. Despite of privacy policies, people will violate the rules by using your site images as theirs.

Redo The Topic

Some bloggers copy the title as it is. Sometimes they change the title of blog. They will re-frame your post sentences wherein the context and meaning will remain the same. It’s called as smart copying. When someone does this type of smart copying, there is possibility of your site statistics being affected. On the other hand, readers will think either of you have copied the ideas as it is.

Changing Your View

Some platforms provide rights to the bloggers to change the comments. Hence, your original comment on their post can be changed by them. Be careful. Few bloggers can rewrite your comment into something which is against your original comment. For this reason, you need to have track of your previous comments. Since, you cannot always keep track of comments, you can just write the comments in a way such that there should not be much chance for the blogger to change it.

What type of evil bloggers you came across so far?
