As a beginner in blogging, whoever told you blogging was easy did not only lie to you but placed you on a journey without preparation. What is not prepared for is bound to fail. When I hear bloggers screaming and yelling; “I want to quit, blogging is too hard”, I am forced to ask, “compared to what?
You had just one blog, you failed and you want to quit? It would interest you to know that I failed too, not once but 7-times. I spent enormous resources, time and energy but I still failed and I haven’t quit. This point is this; failure didn’t make me unfit for blogging, but it proved that each time I did something wrongly. Hence there was the need to cross-check the foundation of all the blogs and what led to their failure of colossal proportion. I realized that it wasn’t the will to succeed that matters, everyone has that. It is the will to prepare to succeed that matters.
Don’t Forget: The Spirituality Of Blogging
How Do I Press The Restart Button?
Consider yourself playing Fifa13 on the PlayStation 3 console as an armature against a top gamer, at the end of the day, the scores are pathetic with a minimum of 5-goals hitting the back of your net. You can’t even score a single goal. What do you do? Do you quit playing Fifa13? No! You awake the next day and ask for another challenge, you notice some remarkable improvements, although you still loose but this time, by a lesser margin. In the coming weeks, the top-gamer starts to find your match more difficult, eventually you start to score and sooner or later both of you become champions wining and loosing in almost equal proportion. That’s how blogging is. You fail today, go to sleep, do not fill your head with worries, for it brings nothing but depression. Start to think about ideas and how it can fit into your blog.
Go on research; find out what other bloggers in your niche are doing. Find their faults and find ways to make corrections and apply it not in their blog but in your own blog. Create a system on how your blog should operate, how often should you post, the minimum number of posts that must be published per week etc. Little details like navigation and CSS might also play a dominant role in turning your “no-name” blog into professional blog”.
