Since I have been blogging, I have always been blogging with passion but along the way, I felt depressed and bad in one way or another. I felt inferior and kind of unsuccessful, whenever I read posts of many pro bloggers with numerous comments on their post; I see other pro bloggers commenting on that blog. Anytime I see this, I’ll say to myself, “It’s only pro bloggers that connect and comment with other pro bloggers”. Not until my intuition changed, my mind set changed about it and the spirit of Inferiority Complex left. Some of the things I realized and changed will be discussed shortly in the journey of this post.
Inferiority Complex is a lack of self-worth, a doubt, uncertainty and feelings of not measuring up to society’s standards. I will not like to say there is a standard you must meet as a blogger, the only thing you need is a great content and a good connection, after that, traffic problem is solved and you earn money.
Must Read: You Have an Awesome Blog, What Next?
I am sure you have been waiting to read those things that can make you an inferior blogger, so let’s get started.
Not believing in yourself
In anything you do in life, you must first believe in yourself, which includes blogging. As a blogger the first step to failure is “not believing” in yourself, which must be dealt with. Otherwise you cannot go far in your blogging career. Not believing in yourself can lead to inferiority complex on your part. This is when you want to be like others simply because they are successful but it is not possible. If you keep copying others, you will never create a brand for yourself.
The first step to overcoming this challenge is been positive. Do not be afraid to fail, always remember that FAIL means First Attempt Is Life. So if you fail today, you should keep trying because, real Failure is when you stop trying and you accept defeat. The people you so envy today, started like you, remember, Rome wasn’t built in a day.
Another thing you should keep in mind is that if you don’t believe in yourself, no other person can believe in you, and always know that no one can make you feel inferior without your consent. It is high time you said to yourself: “THE ONLY PERSON WHO CAN PULL ME DOWN IS MYSELF, AND I’M NOT GOING TO LET MYSELF PULL ME DOWN ANYMORE.” (C. JoyBell C).
Lack of Good Blogging Knowledge
Sometimes last week or there about I was reading on WHO IS A BLOGGER by Kerbalah, I learnt from it and I will like you to go through it also. A good knowledge or understanding about blogging is important, if you venture into a blogging career just because others are taking it as a career and you don’t have the wide or rich knowledge they have, then it will be impossible to see yourself as a unique blogger.
The popular saying that knowledge is power is true. When you know and very sure of what you are doing, who will question you, or who will make you feel inferior, but when you don’t know and you are not sure of what you even know, then when anyone tell you lies, you fall into the trap and causes you trouble.
Poor or No Relationship with Bloggers
The saying, “No man is an island of Knowledge” should not be waved aside as a good blogger, who want to make impact in blogosphere. When you don’t associate with other bloggers,you can never learn from their mistakes and their blogging testimonies.
It is often said that the mistakes of others when avoided will make you better. If you don’t want to feel inferior as a blogger, you need to learn from other bloggers, their challenges and how they overcame, the loop-holes you need to fill, the blunders you need not to make. By so doing, you will find yourself reaching the great height in blogging as you have always wanted.
One of the ways of overcoming Poor or No relationship with bloggers is by Connecting with other bloggers on Social Networks likes Facebook, Twitter, Google+ etc. Make sure you get acquainted with them, do not ask provoking questions like “How do I get Traffic” and other shits. Another way is by sharing there blog posts or articles with your friends and network.
These are some of the things the newbie bloggers don’t take into consideration. Follow this three steps and I am sure you will be good if not better blogger.
