3 Reasons Why bloggers Give up Blogging So Easily?

Blogging is a strange notion, as it is both enigmatic and addictive in nature. Whosoever gets to know about blogging and its allied advantages thinks that this is their cup of tea. So this way it is enigmatic.
On the other hand, whosoever successfully passes the first few initial stages like solo blogging, DIY tutorials, publishing, etc, can never ignore it. This way it is addictive as well.

It is a repeated fact that everyday thousands of people, across the world, commence blogging. However it does not stay, the way it begins. Reason is very simple, new bloggers get frustrated and soon they forget about their blogging ambitions. Let’s see why people give up blogging as easily as they start.

Not Getting Optimum Traffic:

9 out of 10 bloggers take up blogging to pursue their biggest ambition of life: money and freedom from regular 9-to-5 job. Only a handful of people prefer blogging to express and share their opinions. Also, it is free to do as initially you don’t need to buy any web hosting or domain name. Platforms like Blogger from Google and WordPress offer free blogging. As of now, there are hundreds of free blogging platforms available for kids to old grannies.  

As per the common human urge, expectations run parallel to the traffic of your blog. Hence, less traffic hurts everyone. Many people think that their blog will be super hit by writing only 10 to 20 posts, and after that they can get scores of posts written from freelance content writers. However, that’s not the case. The main pillar of successful blogging is consistency; it is a common trend found among all successful bloggers of today.

If you want to make blogging as your career, then it too like any other career takes time. Be patient and maintain your consistency, and then see the results.

Knows Writing…but too Many Topics

Before taking the path of blogging, one needs to recognize his/her writing calibre and interest area, since these two factors define the rational niche of a blogger. If you don’t know what you can write about, hold on, take some time, do a lot of research and comeback with a niche oriented blogging mindset. Writing on multiple topics for one blog or many, will lead you nowhere but to a point of frustration. The best tip is to read a lot and initially write short blog posts than long ones.  

It’s too Technical for me….I need a troubleshooter

It is a universal truth that blogging on blogspot.com is easier than any other platform. Whether it is Weebly or Wordpress, things seem tough. So, the hot advice for an aspiring blogger is to start blogging on blogspot.com. Or, if you have some serious plans, then you can experiment on blogspot.com. People with non-technical background can watch tutorial videos online to get the things done perfectly; for example, learn how to install custom domain in blogspot or how to use Google webmaster or how to change the theme of the blog, etc.

Initially do not involve into too many technical things at a time. Take your time to settle down as blogging is like Test cricket. What happens when you try to be a master overnight: tech definitions frustrate and demoralise you.

6 Passive Income Ideas for Struggling Digital Nomads

To set yourself as a competent digital nomad, you need to have either strong financial back up or good passive income coming from some of reliable sources. Well most of the digital nomads work for clients either directly or through service marketplaces; hence, it is quite apparent that neither their income nor work flow is consistent in the early days. At times, clients take unnecessary time to release pay cheque, and obtaining regular work from freelance portals among such cut-throat competition is a difficult job because initially you need to agree as per their terms and conditions. With time when you grow with your performance and make a credible name, gigs come automatically to you. However, there is a gap time between that successful point and the struggling spell.
