Do you blog for a business or do you own a blogging business?
What could be the reason for me starting a blog post with such an ambiguous question. Well, I am not here to play word games. There must be some reason for me to even conceptualize this question, right! Yes, there is a purpose.
This is something that should grab the attention of all those professional and amateur bloggers out there too as it did mine. Yes, the link and relation between business and blogging. There was no link between the two a few years ago. But now the bonding seems to be getting stronger and stronger by the day.
Hundreds if not thousands of blogs are launched everyday including those on all the free blogging sites like Wordpress and blogger. But how many of them are able to garner a list of readers who visit them regularly or subscribe to their posts through RSS or email. Well the answer to this question will be, only a fraction of them do. Only a fraction of all blogs launched and running have subscribers in thousands. And so is the rate of success of blogs. So, to be successful at blogging, we need to avoid falling in the trap of these following 5 things.
The blog is a result of an impulsive reaction to what we come across. And this is one the reason behind the start of more than 90% of blogs. And most of the blogs thus started go down as fast as they had propped up. I would term such a situation as an Impulsive Blogging Disorder. —-
So, to become successful at blogging continuous blogging is a must. There must be consistency in the blog posts and one should avoid the tendency to write and article on impulse if their blog is not a news opinion blog. And if you are stuck in such a cycle and want to come out of this then the best way is to make a blogging schedule and stick to it. Please comment if you find this article useful.
It is high time now that you find out what motivates you the most to keep your blog going. Is it for money or just a past time activity. Do you want to be an accomplished author by gaining public recognition and become popular among your intended audience and then opt to launch the book you so eagerly wanted to be published. What motivates you is a matter of individual preference.
But motivation is a must to be successful at blogging as you need to keep going even in adverse times because it is not always a smooth ride in any field. The path to blogging success passes through some tough terrain and you must be ready for that. If you have the right and strong motivation to be successful at blogging then those tough terrains should not phase you out of the path and you will be successful for sure.
