What Would I Tell My Younger Self?

Recommended Posts

Many of us embarked on our online journeys during our teenage years or even earlier. Looking back, we often wish we could offer valuable advice to our younger selves to make better choices and achieve greater success. In this article, we'll explore key insights and advice I would share with my younger self, drawing from my own experiences in website creation and online ventures.

1. Patience is Key

As a teenager, I started creating free websites on platforms like Geocities. Excitement and ambition fueled my projects, but I had unrealistic expectations about how quickly they would gain popularity. One of the most important pieces of advice I would offer to my younger self is not to expect instant success. Building a strong online presence and a dedicated audience takes time and effort.

2. Learn About Marketing

In my early online endeavors, I had little knowledge of marketing strategies. I relied on the hope that visitors would stumble upon my websites. To my younger self, I would emphasize the importance of actively researching and implementing marketing techniques. Understanding how to effectively advertise and promote your website can significantly boost its visibility and reach.

3. Embrace the Power of SEO

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a fundamental aspect of online success that I wish I had grasped earlier. SEO helps your website rank higher in search engine results, making it easier for users to discover your content. Learning about SEO and applying best practices would have been a game-changer for my younger self. It's a skill that can dramatically increase your website's visibility and traffic.


As we reflect on our past online experiences, we realize the valuable lessons we've learned along the way. If I could offer advice to my younger self, it would revolve around patience, marketing, and the importance of SEO. These insights could have significantly improved the outcomes of my early online ventures. Whether you're just starting your online journey or have been at it for a while, remember that learning from your experiences and seeking continuous improvement are keys to success.
