I’ve Been Blogging for 11½ Months and Learned This

    It’s been a year since I’ve created the blog titled The Indie Crime Novelist, and I’ve discovered a few things along the way. My intent for this blog was to promote my books and also help new authors get started in the self-publishing industry by sharing my fifteen plus years of knowledge in writing. Blogging has been a challenging but rewarding experience, and I’m just starting to see the fruits of my labor.

    There’s a theory floating around on the Internet that suggests new bloggers and website owners will endure being in the Google Sandbox for a limited amount of time due to the newness of their blogs and websites. I don’t know if this is true or not, but I can say that it took eleven months and sixty-three articles written before I began to witness growth in organic traffic to my blog. Prior to that, I was receiving a lot of bot traffic from various countries, but it all came to a halt about a month ago. My site is slowly gaining traction, and all of my plans for this blog are coming to fruition.

    I’d like to personally thank all of my subscribers for supporting this blog as I enter into my first year of writing articles that I hope are interesting as well as informative. Stay tuned for more posts and fiction books to come.
