Blogging Tips #5

DO NOT GIVE UP!


This is one of the most important pieces of advice I can give someone.
DON’T GIVE UP!!!! I mean it.

I know it’s easy to say I am to busy, I can’t do this, I’m sick, the kids are sick and a million other excuses out there. Don’t do it. Once you give up it’s hard to get back into it and you lose your readers and your momentum to keep plugging at it.

There are plenty of bloggers out there that are doing great. You can too. You just have to work at it and in the beginning it is really hard. You don’t know much. Your not sure of yourself. What do you write about. Will people like you and a million other things go on.

Take your time and you will blossom and so will your blog. Trust me I know. I am not the biggest blogger out there. I probably never will be. But I do know I love it and it’s fun and I do make a little money at it and it helps me. It makes me feel like I am contributing to my family and helping people. At least I hope I am. I can’t even describe how great I feel when someone tells me they like my blog or send me an email. It makes me feel like in the end it’s worth it.

I know it’s hard and frustrating and discouraging sometimes. But don’t give up.

  1. I would love to make money and contribute to my family’s finances. How can I do it with my blog?

  2. Thanks for the inspiring words. I’m guilty of having plenty of reasons on why I keep neglecting my blog. I really wish I could come around to regularly updating it again.

  3. That was well said.
    I am so proud of you!

    Wonderful words to inspire anybody.

  5. This is good advice. I’ve had to take breaks from blogging a couple of times – it’s easy to burn out as a review/giveaway blogger – but I always come back to it. It also helps to avoid comparing your blog to other blogs and just do what makes you happy.
