So you started a blog, congratulations! It’s fun, right? You have all kinds of plans and dreams for what you’re going to post and share. Soon everyone will be reading and sharing what you have written. You’ll be the go to expert in your niche.
Fast-forward a couple weeks and the blog that seemed like the greatest idea is just sitting there. You only posted one or two times and now… nothing. This sound familiar?
Just like that diet you started in January and shortly ditched; your blog is kind of like the digital equivalent of that. You tried and now you’re over it. No one is reading it anyway..
You only have a couple posts and one of those is that you’re starting a blog, so really why should anyone care?
That passion you had when you first started now just feels like a chore, something that has to get done; it’s work and you started this for fun.
I totally understand blogging is hard, it takes time to come up with content and even more time to come up with quality content. There are times I find myself wondering why I put in the effort and whether it’s worth it. But I’ll keep writing and sharing. Why? Well because I want to get better, improve my writing and share my knowledge and experience but more importantly I’ve come this far with it and I don’t want to stop now.
Blogging should be an enjoyable experience both for the reader and you. If you do not enjoy blogging then your audience will not enjoy reading it! Shut it off or maybe invest in a faster, lower-effort option like Tumblr.
