[189] Promote Your Blog

It’s September. The month of my birthday. Fall has begun but I’m reminded of my progress in blogging and how lovely it has been. The only consistency in my life.

Also, you guys are free to comment here your blog links or one post that you’d like everyone to read. Let’s make this a big blog party.

A short introduction to your blog for the unacquainted and a post to welcome your new readers would be helpful.

Back to story time

Inspired partly by Stephen King’s resolve to write 2000 words a day and partly by the allure of the night, I started the blog in January 2017. Slowly and steadily my consistency grew and with that my readership grew or as I like to call you guys, my smoke words every day community grew.

Then the blog changed meaning for me. I started to read other blogs more regularly and I watched so many blogs blossom in front of my eyes and so many of them faded into oblivion. The potential of these blogs lost to the self-afflicted excuse of having no time.

Today, I have 1848 followers and counting and to put myself under more pressure, I bought my domain. So now it reads as rahulgaurblog.com without the wordpress.com

This is the season of change. This is the transition phase from summer to winter. With the purchase of the domain, I hope to transform into a full-fledged writer with more consistency and better quality.

I would also like this opportunity to help you guys get discovered by my small community and have a conversation about blogging. I find the personal communication of WordPress to be lacking as there is no mode of personal messaging but only by comments.

So I leave my Instagram link here if anyone has any questions about blogging in general or you want to talk about life or just joke around with me. You’re most welcome. I want the conversation to be a two-way street. I want us to put personalities into our blogs beyond our work, so drop a DM.

I’ll start with my recent favourite :ย [182] Privilege


If you like my blog and what I stand for a small donation would help a lot.


Donate if you like this blog and would love the content more regularly. Every dollar or rupee counts.


Thanks for being a part of this community.

    1. I try to write at least 12-15 blog posts per month. An image related to the piece always accompanies them.

      I write about several subjects from love, loss, sci-fi, culture, rebellion, productivity etc.

  1. Well done, Rahul. I, too, am enjoying the feeling that regular blogging brings – in my reading & writing life. Also, congratulations on getting your domain name together. Thanks for dropping by & keep on, keeping on! nickreeves.blog

    1. It took me around 1 and a half year to gain peopleโ€™s trust of delivering quality writing.

      Will surely check it out in a while ๐Ÿ™‚

      I love the idea of incorporating writing prompts along with it! Neat.

  2. Congratulations on acquiring 1848 followers, the numbers will only continue to grow brother.

    Thank you for allowing us to post links to our site On my site I explore various philosophical and Spiritual viewpoints and talk about life in general. I do not push anything as absolute truth.

    Hereโ€™s a link to one of my articles called A Gratitude List, where I explain how making a gratitude list can have healthy healing effects.


  3. I started my blog way back 2014 but I must admit I wasnโ€™t successful at all, I had too much ups and downs in my life that I just had to drop by read a bit and post once in a while. Now I am back and Iโ€™m still in the preparation for a big one, but it feels like Iโ€™m starting all over again:(

    1. We can’t change the past but we can take care of what we do with the present. Hope you don’t lose courage this time and smash this blogging game!

      Lots of love and luck to you ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Congratulations!
    I started my blog back in January of this year and I try to post something everyday if not every other day or so. It consist of my thoughts, feelings, some poems, pictures or quotes. Feel free to check out my blog at http:/sunsetssunrise.wordpress.com
    Thank you for stopping by ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’—

  5. Hi! I literally just made a blog today, and I’m really glad that I came across this blog. It inspires me to pick upon the story I used to write years ago… I loved writing it, but I feel I only wanted to write the major plot points and I didn’t care so much for the in between.. lol! Anyway, I’m still in the process of browsing your blog, and I feel inspired to write fiction again. I’ve delved more into article writing… not for any one else, just for myself, but I hope in my new blog I can share my journal and all my thoughts in article form here! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Hello everyone,
    Iโ€™m a blind person, 35 years old and learning English. My native language is Spanish, so because of this I recently started a blog so I can force to myself to write few lines in English whenever I can. My primary goal is improve English grammar and expressing feelings, thoughts, opinions, daily routine, etc. what ever gets me into English writing.

    So Iโ€™d appreciate if you visit my blog and drop your comments so I can improve grammar, you can let me know about grammar mistakes, proper structure for expressing ideas and what ever you think I need to improve.
    My blogโ€™s name is โ€œthe wind up bird chroniclesโ€ and to visit it you can follow this link:


    Thanks to Rahul for offering this post to promote our blogs.

    Oh by the way, I post using a nickname but my real name is Leo.

  8. Hello Community!
    My name is Savio, Indian-Goan [that’s the smallest state in India]. Since we’re sharing our blogs with each other. I’d like to include my little blog as well, Its called Goin’ the extra.aaamile and can be found on the address http://www.theextraaamile.com.
    I don’t have a specific theme I blog about, but a little of everything – mostly the stuff that goes on in my head, the things I see and sometimes if I find myself in a romantic mood, a poem or a few lines of love. Its all in there, a little under 950 posts till now. Take your time, visit and read. There’s a lot of stuff in there.
    Lovely been part of this lets-get-to-know-each-other party sorts here ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope to get to know some more bloggers from the list.
    Great day/night to all.

  9. Congratulations on the followers and the domains! It’s something I too aspire to do in the future! I agree about WordPress not having a personal messaging feature. Along with Instagram I suggest it would be nice if you have a Twitter handle as well. Many of the bloggers are active on Twitter including me and my friends on WordPress.

  10. Hello, congratulations, happy birthday, and thank you! I find your blog, and your success at blogging, very inspiring. I have a very new blog (born June 30th) that I’m still working out all the kinks with (like how often I post). Right now, each of my posts is a writing prompt, followed by my own response to the prompt, with the invitation for everyone else to try the prompt out for themselves. Here’s the link: https://lookingglassofwords.wordpress.com/posts/

  11. Hey there,

    congrats on the milestone, I hope one day I can make it happen, the first goal is 500 followers tho…
    So this is my blog http://www.theworldthroughmyglasses.org take a look if you like travelling, but bored to read Wikipedia. I try to write my posts in a funny casual way with lots of personal experiences… like I would tell my stories to a friend while sipping a glass of wine – or two haha

    happy blogging, and let me know what you think


  12. Hello everyone, my name is Megan and I have a blog containing all my experiences and advice regarding mental health, there are also just some general posts about life. I have lots of exciting posts planned and I would be very grateful if you could follow my blog. The main aim of this blog is to reduce stigma around mental health. https://thistruelifeofmine.wordpress.com
    Thanks, Meg xx

  13. Happy Birthday! Congratulations on such a successful blog. Thank you for this opportunity. Together with my husband we sold our house, gave away most of our possessions, left our careers and bought a narrowboat (a kind of houseboat) to live in instead in the UK. We then took a year out and went off to India. I am writing a book which is part personal travel diary, part notes on the journey of self realisation. At the moment I post the draft chapters on the blog each week, along with a short travel update and writing update. These posts go up each Friday. On Thursdays I do a Throwback Thursday post, reposting a blog from four years ago, sometimes with a short introduction. My blog is quite personal and my book is essentially a love letter to India. http://www.sadiewolfblog.wordpress.com

  14. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! (whenever it was). Hope you had a great day. You write really well dude and I’m glad you stumbled across my blog and let me discover yours.

  15. Happy Birth Month Rahul! Congratulations on your fruitful blogging journey, I hope this success transcends exponentially.

    I recently re-entered the blogging world after taking a couple months off. My blog features short stories, flash-fiction, and narrative poetry. If you all fancy any of this, feel free to check out my latest post, it emulates my writing style and technique. Feel free to browse around and drop me a line in the comments section letting me know what your thoughts are on a particular piece, or just a general comment.

    I believe in mutual support in the blogging community and will take the time to check out the work of others. I hope to see you all over at my blog sometime.

    Here is the link to my latest posts for your convenience:


  16. Hello Rahul and everyone who read my poem “SMOKE” and followed me and liked it too. I have removed it from my site as it is in the line to make it’s first appearance at the Tata Literature Live 2018. It is a literary fest to be held in Mumbai in November. On winning I will get a chance to read my poem there.

    I am in the top 25 right now. On maintaining my position I stand a chance to win too. Please read my poem SMOKE. And please vote if you like it.


    I have attached the link to my poem where you can vote for it.

    Thanks in advance to anyone who would love to vote ๐Ÿ˜Š
