When it comes to making money online, the fastest growing trend is to start a blog, write quality posts, bring people to your blog and make money through your blog. It’s that simple!
Now, when we realistically look at it, this is the pattern we have to follow, but is it really so easy? Our imagination makes it look so easy, but when we begin the work, we learn that it requires lots of work and efforts.
Do You Really Have Time or You Only Think You Will Spend Enough Time on Your Blog?
If you plan to spend maximum 4 to 6 hours a week writing and promoting your blog, then the hard truth is that you shouldn’t start a blog. You can’t create a successful blog without spending much, much more time than that.
“Yes…I can do it” Attitude:
It’s good to be confident, but it’s not good to be over-confident. In the world of blogging, the more honest you are to yourself, the better your results will be, because only then you will be able to come up with a realistic and effective strategy.
Realize This: It Takes Time to Establish Your Blog:
You don’t want to bring people to your blog just once, but you rather want them to come again and again. What will make them like your blog, visit frequently or even join your mailing list is the quality of your content and knowledge that will allow them to learn new things and, consequently, they would want to come again and again.
Writing Quality Posts Takes Time:
In order to write quality posts in a nice and attractive manner, you will have to conduct some research. Also, when you share powerful information, you have to share it in a nice and smooth way as well. Spending lots of time on research and then writing haphazardly will mess up the post. It’s the combination of quality research and quality writing that can make all the difference.
But, then, it’s not something that can be done in a matter of minutes only. You have got to spend quality time to write quality posts. If you think that you will be able to update your blog frequently with new and quality content, then you need to seriously analyze your claim that if your claim is realistic in terms of having enough time in hand or you are just imagining as you are excited.
Realize This: It’s Not Easy to Promote Your Blog:
A lot of newbies think that after they write a new post, they will only have to Digg and Stumble it to bring quality traffic. This perception is not 100% correct. We can only wish it was so easy. It takes time to even create your presence effectively on social media sites. You will have to spend several hours a week to promote your blog effectively.
Remember, your blog won’t become famous automatically. Just as you will have to spend lots of quality time to promote your offline business or shop, the same way you will have to spend tons of time to promote your online presence, i.e. blog.
It’s Good to Imagine, But…
There is nothing wrong with imagining yourself as a successful blogger, but you need to come up with a realistic plan that will turn your dream or imagination into reality. Hard work and persistence will be required to accomplish that.
