I was just in a forum recently and a group of us were having a discussion on reasons why people fail with blogging. There were so many different views and reasons why people fail at it. Blogging is a great way to build your presence online and potentially make a living off of, but it comes with a price.
There is a lot of hard work dedicated to creating a place where people want to come and feel comfortable.
A place on the web where people can get the information they are seeking with full confidence that it can help them.
Today I wanted to discuss some reasons why people fail with blogging.
Let's get started.
3 Reasons Why People Fail With Blogging
1) Picking the wrong niche
In another one of my articles, How to Find the Right Niche, I discussed the importance of picking the right niche.
This should be the first step in the process of creating your own blog.
If it's to make money then this is where you should begin.
Picking the wrong niche will cause you a big headache and will ultimately be a waste of time if the niche isn't profitable.
You will put in loads of time and work for no reason if the niche cannot be monetized.
2) They are too impatient
Often people to into blogging to make a quick buck and in most cases it does not work that way.
Blogging takes effort and you must be passionate about what you are doing.
Otherwise you will not stick with it and your blogging efforts will be short lived.
Most of the successful bloggers I know didn't start earning money until 6+ months into the business and with that they put in loads of work.
Focus on building a foundation with your blog and learning how to manage it.
Take your time with it and focus on making it the best you can.
In this case patience is truly a virtue with blogging.
3) Lack of consistency
Consistency is important in any endeavor.
Blogging probably is one of the longest processes to make money online.
While you can make money quickly, really building that foundation is the best process for you.
Remaining consistent with you efforts will build your credibility and in time you will learn what it takes to maintain a thriving functioning blog.
Learning how to become a better writer, improve your SEO efforts, and building relationships with your readership.
If you remain consistent with your blogging you can eventually branch out into other ways to make money online, but having a blog should be one of your sources.
These are only a few ways of why people fail with blogging, but these three things are definitely big in why people don't have success with it.
Blogging is a really effective way to build something lasting and credible.
In my online experience when you have a blog you have a reputation.
People are more likely to see you as an expert and will opt in to your list because of that.
You show people you are real and they get to see many sides of your personality depending on your content.
Blogging is a way to show your knowledge, people will respond well to that over any other form of internet marketing.
