I started blogging for the first time in September 2008. At first, I was experimenting and I wasn’t concerned about how many visitors I was getting, even though I knew it was important.

After all, I have already become Certified as a Social Media Marketing Specialist as a result of taking their Social Media Marketing Course and I was certain I would learn much more about marketing my blog.

It has certainly had a positive effect on the readership of my blog and driven traffic to my site. With the knowledge I gain, I can apply the same strategies to boost traffic to my client’s blogs.
