Being a blogger or a website owner, there is no limit to what you can achieve. As long as you have the appropriate set of tools, you are good to go. No wonder 100s of blogs are being surfaced every second.
I know you’ve heard from so many pro bloggers that blogging is easy. Without skills, knowledge of writing but with just a few step by step e-book guides, you can start making much money as a blogger.
News flash my new comers, those pro bloggers telling you blogging is easy are only sweet talking you to buy what they are selling. Fact…
As sweet and rewarding as blogging could be, it is one of the hardest occupations you’ll ever dive into as a new blogger.
5 Advice You Will Never Get From a Pro Blogger as a New Blogger
While you are hearing blogging is easy, there is no stress or whatsoever in blogging, you should also put these in mind.
There is no such thing as easy business:
You can decide to buy a domain name and build a website or install a blog around the domain, then publishing those incredible contents of yours… the truth is, if don’t know how or where to start, you won’t make money with that blog if your main aim is to make money blogging.
Even if you monetize the blog/website with the easiest monetization method out there it still won’t fetch you as much as you’d expect.
Before you can start making money with your blog, you will need a huge marketing strategy because a beautiful content is not enough to make your blog a marketing house.
Remember that blogging is like every other offline business, the only difference is, you don’t need that much capital to initialize your goal.
You can create a blog in less than 5 minutes but…
You can easily create a blog in less than five minutes. Yes, it’s possible… but maintaining that blog takes a lot of skills and ideas…
If you create a blog yourself without any blogging idea or guidance, this is how it’s going to be – you might install 50 or more plugins because you love how the plugins looks on your blog – you might use a free, virus infected theme you found in Google search to power your blog because you feel the theme is beautiful.
These are the things that will probably happen to your blog –
- Your blog will load slowly
- Your blog won’t get indexed due to the virus infected theme you installed
- your blog will be blacklisted on both Google search and other search engines
- You might probably get hacked easily.
- Your hosting providing will eventually suspend your account due to the excess use of resources your blog consumes.
If you haven’t created a blog before or if this is your first time of creating a blog, I’ll advise you to find a friend who is operating a functional blog to guide you through on how many plugin you should use, what theme you should install and how to fully optimize your blog.
Remember, running a clean and fast blog will always give you an upper hand in this crowd called blogging.
You will only succeed in blogging if you love what you are doing
I have heard so many people saying you don’t need passion in what ever you do before you can start making money with it. While that’s true, you can easily give up your struggle as well if you don’t have passion in whatever you are doing especially blogging.
Before you start blogging, find out what you truly love doing and build a niche around it. If you love sports, write about that, and if you love acting, write about that. With patience, time and research, you will start earning money as a blogger…
Remember, if you don’t have it in you, you won’t make it through your first stage of blogging. Doing “copy and paste” will only destroy the potential of your blog.
There are lots of other potential business online that doesn’t require you to blog, why not grab those so you won’t waste your time doing what you are not meant to do
What works for you might not work for me
You must have tried one or two traffic tips from some blog posts you come across or must have tried those making money tips you see on top blogs but none of these traffic or making money tips has ever worked for you.
Have you ever wondered why?
The thing is, the reason those traffic tips and making money tips are not working for you is simply because you are not trying as hard as you should.
An established blog don’t need to search for traffic as hard as a new blog would, why? They already have a working method that works for them. Constant practices and tweaking the methods you learn online will really help you.
The thing is what works for me might not work for you if you apply it the same way as I have done.
Remember: Because that trick, tip or guide did not work for you doesn’t mean you should stop there. The best way to go about it is to keep trying and tweaking 😉
Darn what those boys are saying Blogging is Hard
My brother told me blogging is a lazy man’s job. I asked him why he says so and he replied; the only thing he sees me do all day is site down in front of my system. Lol
Many people believe that blogging doesn’t have stress or it’s so easily that 11yrs old can do it. If you are one of those people who think blogging is easy, ask yourself why people quit blogging after a month or so.
Before you can be a successful blogger, there are many processes you must pass through and being smart is one of those processes.
When you are entering the blogosphere, put it in mind that blogging is hard. Determination and the act of never given up is what will see you through.
Believe in your skill, it will surely help
A blog is an avenue where intelligent minds showcase their skills and talents. Your skill makes your blog unique, without your skill, your blog will only be an ordinary blog.
If your writing skill is a bit rusty, never you worry because one good thing about blogging is; it helps build your writing skill and improve your tech skill as well if you put your mind to it.
Like every other offline business, blogging takes time to launch and when it does, it never stops.
If you rush in your blogging career, you will hit a hard rock… driving slow and steady is the best step to take as a blogger. Remember that a tree was once a seed…
