IoT Adventure Book will delve deeper into the business of IoT. It will also share the experience of being an IoT entrepreneur. Some of the topics have been written in the IoT World Blog. Check out the contents below:
One of the frustrating parts is when I Google the name “Mazlan Abbas Blog,” the website does not even appear in the Google Ranking!
Here’s where many Bloggers would start to get very frustrated and abandon their Blogging activities. In reality (as described by many professional bloggers), it’s very typical, that we will only see the impact after several months!
Below is my traffic stats that showed the ups and downs. The “ups” is because I mainly promoted the posts on my Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter – and Facebook seems to be the highest referrals.
Surprisingly my top 3 countries (other than my home country Malaysia) are the United States, India, and Ireland.
Types of Blog Posts
The idea of my Blog is for Personal Blogging – sharing my journey into the world of Entrepreneurship, which mainly referred back to my business Blog called IoT World.
By monitoring the article’s number of views, I will understand what content attracted the readers.
Top be fair, the Blog is still at its infancy stage. It requires constant update with high-quality contents. I will be revisiting this statistics monthly and monitor the progress.
I am now using All-In-One SEO (AISEO) plug-in to help increase the SEO. And I have also followed many tips given by many other veteran Bloggers.
Kindly leave your comments and share your thoughts. I love to hear them.
Yes – there’s a truth in this. That’s what they said a couple of years ago. However, there are many type of blogging such as personal journal, lifestyle, travel, health, technology and many others.
The trend for personal blogging have decline. People might no longer have interest to follow an individual daily activities, their families, trips etc. This type of content can easily followed via their social media channels such as Facebook or Instagram.
Entertainment vs Educational Blogs
However, blogs which covered specific topics that solve the reader’s problems would be the ones that have longer lifetime. The topics are more educational as compared to entertainment.
The contents for educational type of blogs can remained evergreen as people still searched the Internet for solutions.
This is something which I need to decide when I created Mazlan Abbas Blog – should it be personal blogging or a blog which is more educational such as the one I created at IoT World Blog.
Today, is my third day of blogging, and I will always monitor the traffic to see how the contents impact the traffic to the blog.
Why should you read and follow this Blog? If you want to read IoT contents, you may visit IoT World Blog, but here you will get constant updates about my journey in developing projects such as my Startup, FAVORIOT, Podcasts,, YouTube, Online marketplace and E-Books.
Along the way, I will share the ups and downs or probably some tips that we should avoid in building such projects. I hoped this will also become a platform to listen yo your ideas and thoughts too. Please leave you comments on the posts.
I don’t quite recall when exactly I started blogging, but I remember the early days I used to Blog in Blogger.com and have created more than 10 Blog sites. Many of them are no longer active except a few which I normally auto-post from YouTube.
One of my favourite and can be considered as a popular Blog is My Gadget Blog. I started to blog in 2010 and the contents are mainly from my interest in electronic gadgets which I purchased (nothing get sponsored). I love to Jailbreak the iPhone as early as iPhone 3G (but stopped doing that jailbreaking after 2014). May tips are shared among readers and that was the time, the site became very popular.
After several years of creating and experimenting with different blogs, I finally decided to take seriously and bought a domain name iotworld.co which is the starting point for my entrepreneurship journey into the tech space i.e Internet of Things. It was in 2016, when I started to blog this topic quite seriously. It covers many aspects of IoT including its definition, applications, benefits, challenges, tips, the country’s IoT challenges and many others.
This Blog has partly helped me to be recognised as an IoT Thought Leader. The idea for this blog is quite simple – to help others in their IoT journey. How to prepare themselves with this emerging technology and the impact of business disruption in IR 4.0.
The best thing about this blog, it also provide me with other opportunities to create contents on other social media channels such as YouTube, Podcast and TikTok. Furthermore, it has given more visibility and exposure to get myself invited as Keynote Speaker in conferences, seminar and webinars. Some of the contents of which I have created earlier has been turned into eBooks (Your IoT Journey and IoT Notes) – which I have given the subscribers for free.
