I have blogger friends and also friends who are new, excited about the concept of internet marketing. Most of them have started to blog or either planning to start off a blog. But as the time goes, these faces disappear from the online world and soon I wonder what happened, why they are not actively blogging like before? Most of the enthusiastic blogger friends of mine don’t even make it up to at least one year as they fall.
Now today I’m sharing a few reasons why most bloggers quit blogging within a year. I want you to read them below if you are a newbie blogger and make sure you don’t quit blogging.
1 You don’t love blogging
You will quit if you start something that you don’t love at all. Sometimes bloggers blog just for updating their site or to keep up with the audience. If you don’t love blogging or even blogging on this topic, why blog? You have to care about your blog and your readers. You never know who is following your blog and waiting for great new updates.
2 You run too many blogs
I know few people who manages too many blogs like a main blog, tech blog, personal blog and another blog about their blogging habits. After all that you also have to manage being you, your family and work too! Running too many blogs at once is really hard and you will get bored with it real soon. When I started blogkori, I had another regular blog running and when blogkori started to take off, it was really hard to manage 2 blogs at once; so I quit blogging at my first blog and focused on BlogKori.
3 You want to make money online
No there’s no problem at making money online with your blog but the fact is that majority of the bloggers start to blog just because they want to earn money from their blogs. You can’t earn money with a blog before building a content rich website. You have to provide the content and a reason to read from your site. Most bloggers get frustrated at this and at some point when they see it’s impossible for them to continue, they quit.
4 You didn’t invested any money on it
Blogs are free with blogspot or wordpress but it needs investment if you want to own a domain, have to host the content at your webhost. I’m running BlogKori on HostGator servers from January 2009 and since then I have paid $130 so far, that means almost TK 9,000 alone in the hosting. Additional money spent on buying and renewing domains, contest giveaways and the bills I paid for my PC upgrades and internet subscription. So just because I have spent so much money for my blog, I won’t stop blogging that easily.
5 You are not blogging with wordpress
The majority of the bloggers are using free platform and have never tried out wordpress. WordPress is cool for bloggers and web site owners with so many great features, themes, tools and flexibility. Just because you have a blogspot blog, you don’t care about your blog and finally you quit.
6 You are not even writing your own posts
Most bloggers are too lazy to write blog posts themselves and what they do is to copy paste content from the web. They think they are smart and nobody will ever know. You won’t attract people with copied content even if they are great writings, google won’t give you good rankings either.
7 You are not reading other blogs
You don’t read other blogs at all and you quit saying “Blogging sucks!” -you have no rights to say this buddy, the blogsphere is a tremendous place with high quality professionals. If you don’t read other blogs, you will soon run out of ideas and motivations. Also reading other blogs will give you new tips to maximize blogging efforts.
