The Magnet4Marketing Blog is 1 Year Old!


Good morning all from the sunny county of Cornwall in the United Kingdom (England)… Today Magnet4Marketing celebrates it’s first year of existence, and Ive got to say it has been one hell of a first year of blogging experience for both myself and Samantha Wright, who has also played a huge roll by supporting, writing and taking care of the administration side of things, thanks Samantha, couldn’t have done it without you :)

What have I learnt as a blogger?

Blogging is nothing new to me, but taking it seriously enough to want to make a living from it, was of course totally new for me 12 months ago. I started this blog with a lot of passion; passion to succeed and to make it the best that it could be, so it would be fair for me to say that I’ve come to realise more than ever that consistent hard work, time and patience are the keys to becoming successful in blogging.

Ive also learnt to accept that I don’t know everything there is to know, and that everyday is an opportunity to learn something new, interesting and valuable at the same time. Ive been so grateful to have met so many great people in the blogosphere and without many of them coming to the blog contributing in their own way; it would not have been a small success as it is.

The blogging journey continues…

For me and for those who participate in engaging on the blog as well as help to contribute to provide great content and resource, particularly our guest writers – the journey continues and what’s more, I am now more passionate than ever before not only to make the next 12 months of blogging an even bigger success, but to also do as much as I can to help others realise their own potential. Helping others has always been one of my ultimate goals generally in life let alone blogging.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who I have been on contact with over the last 12 months on Magnet4Marketing for all their help and continued support. Magnet4Marketing hit 10,000 uniques (monthly) last week (16,000 PV’s), and we also went past the 6k followers mark on Twitter.
