Reviewing EllesBellesNotebook in 2021

This is one of the first years since I started blogging where I’ve managed to post three times a week nearly every week of the year. As a result, I saw a lot of growth on EllesBellesNotebook this year and I thought I would do a formal review of EllesBellesNotebook in 2021 to showcase that.

What I learned in 2021

I learned quite a bit about SEO this year and I’ve been implementing quite a lot of those learnings on my blog. From ensuring all posts are error-free and have a relevant keyword, to updating old posts with new information and adding back-links for better search results.

My DA – or Domain Authority – has jumped from 17 to 22 in just 10 weeks! Which for any non-tech people reading is a good thing, and I hope to get it to at least 25 by the end of 2022.

Writing three posts a week and keeping up that routine has been really great for traffic, and my enjoyment as well. I love writing, even if it is just a silly little Top Ten list or a book tag. It helps me relax and channel some creative energy without throwing myself into too many new projects at once. Long may it continue.
