Alot of time, people turn to blogging to make money without stress, unfortunately the reverse is the case for a vast majority of people who have had that foundational mindset . They become stressed-out, worn out emotionally, mentally and physically.
Have you ever wondered why some bloggers have alot of success stories while others are full with regrets? Have you noticed that the most successful bloggers aren’t always the hardest working?
Blogging without stress is achievable and once you get the principle, the results are quite astonishing.
In the first part of the series, I will walk you through two principles that has worked for me.
1. Picking a Niche
All successful bloggers knew this principle before making that choice of being a blogger. This for me is the most important determinant for having a stress-free blog life. Picking a niche simply means starting a blog on something you have a vast idea of, something you love to write about and source information about same. Many bloggers have failed and lived in stress because they started blogging on a false foundation. The fact that one blog is getting so much success from writing on Music is no excuse for you to start a Music blog. The music blogger spends alot of time on MTV and listening to music, you might be doing quite the opposite; reading fashion mag and watching fashion TV, that’s your strength. If you can accept this fact, stress wouldn’t be an issue.
2. Be Calm
Desperate bloggers who care only about money have ended in the height of frustration. When a blogger starts a blog and gets so stressed on what to write and who to write for ends up publishing contents without quality. Soon he starts to loose traffic and his frustration deepens. It is not about publishing 10-posts a day that makes you a successful blogger or makes your blog grow. How many of such posts really impacts your audience? That’s the question many bloggers hate to hear. If you keep forcing below-average contents on your audience, soon they would be no one left. The syllabus of blogging has changed, to be successful, one has to work along with the changes it brings.
In the next part of this series, I will quickly walk you through other principles that have formed the foundational success of bloggers who have attained previously unseen heights.
