Programming blog result for the first year

It has been almost a year since I started this blog. I think it’s a good time to review my footprints on the first day of the year. There might be some people who want to establish their own websites and hence might want to know how many active users, page views, and money I earn.

From the conclusion, the results in the last 30 days are as follows.

What I want to do this year

If I face some problems during my development, I still try to post the solutions and how to consider against the problem. I guess the number of active users increases if I keep posting new articles. This is one thing I should keep doing.
I also try to write my thoughts to share how to learn, for example.
Monetizing is also important. I’ve already registered some Ad networks but my applications have been denied… I want to improve it this year.

Is running a blog nice?

As I wrote in this article, there were many good things. I learned a lot and it’s interesting that the PVs follow what I did. It needs trial and error but it is fun of doing.

But I found that it’s very hard for an article to be shown at the first position because of StackOverflow. In addition to that, each keyword doesn’t have enough search volume because only developers search them. The search volumes for Flutter and TypeScript are as follows by Keyword Surfer.

The volume becomes nearly 0 for the keywords that I use. It means that each article can collect a small number of visitors. To collect many visitors, writing a lot of articles is required for a programming blog. It might be different if it handles Python and Java for example.
