The 6 Things You Dont Want By Blogging

Not many people like to listen to the harsh reality of blogging. I did not want to either.

Like many people, I read some of the blogs of higher development of the personality online. If a message around the world has to say in common, then it is "Think positive."

In my opinion there is something in life are best, said he was silent. One is the blog about reality.

It took a long time to understand the how, why you is blogs and online businesses. I've given up on blogs 2 times in the past. Then I began to focus on the facts. This has helped me keep my blog as well as online business. And I want to help you too.

Ugly Truth # 1: Blogging is not easy

If you regularly read blogs, or have been blogging for a period of time, you would immediately agree with me that "blogging is not easy."

It takes a long time to set up your blog (idea, research, hosting, design, programming, content creation), and even more time to see some momentum building. You have to create compelling content, reading and commenting on other blogs, learn SEO, and writing guest posts, network with other bloggers and so on.

However, the faster burn blogger who spends most people anticipate. Many people lose sight of their goals when they see the traffic that comes in your way. You can not blame. It's just human nature. We want results. Our actions are inspired by the results.

We need motivation to do something. If you are working on a job 5.9, then maybe it is the salary that motivates you. Sometimes it may be the culture of work or even the job that motivates you. Whatever you do, you have to be constantly motivated. It's no different with blogs.

When you start blogging is very motivated and very excited. How can it be otherwise? You are doing first. You are excited about the experience. Their expectations are sky high.

Six months down the road, still doing what I was doing when it started. That have not yet been loyal readership and comments. It's kind of motivation. I know. I've been there when I launched my first blog. My second blog also had a short life. Heck, even my blog third suffered the same fate.

Success occurs when gradually learn to swim upstream. To keep pushing until you reach your goal. When you exercise, keep pushing yourself to do an extra set. Like when you think you have failed to keep pushing until success is in sight.

Remove the tip: blogs Authority takes time. If you need immediate result, either become a celebrity and start posting or develop patience. It takes 1 or 2 or more number of years to achieve success.

Ugly Truth # 2: Model of Business Blogging Is not viable

Let's face it, blogging is not a viable business model. Sure, you can be a web editor and make money selling ads on his blog, but this is not a business itself. In addition, people who can make serious money with this model can be counted on the fingers of one hand.

A better way to look at it is that a blog is a tool to promote your business. Not the company itself. So there you have a product, service, or anything else to sell / offer to their customers.

If you want to build a successful business, then you need to use the blog to build trust, authority, generate leads and build relationships with customers.

Remove the tip: Blogging should be taken as a means to drive their core business

Ugly Truth # 3: Blogging is not all about you

Many blogs about blogging advice from people that your blog reflects your personality. They say that a blog is all about you, you and only you.

Well, I would say that a blog is all about them, they and only they. Who would like them I mean? "They" are the readers who visit your blog.

If people came to your blog because he liked it, then I would be interested in your personal life too. Try to publish articles about his personal life and soon people will go away. This is because people come to your blog niche content. Want advice, tips and a little motivation.

If a blog has to do with the author, then I would say ProBlogger be dead now. Number of messages ProBlogger Darren message these days? Many of them are items of guests. However, ProBlogger is as busy as ever.

Remove the tip: blog with readers in mind. Not your personality.

Ugly Truth # 4: You do not need much to interact with your readers

Reader interaction is supposed to be one of the holy grails of blogs.

Reader interaction happens when most people say in their paper. But what you really need other people's comments on your blog?

It depends.

Most times, people comment on his blog just to get a link to your blog. There are some exceptions however. You say we have to give some recognition to people who take the time to comment on our blog.

Do you really want to be grateful to someone if they hit your child with a rescue truck and then with the intent to get money from your part to save the life of your child?

I do not want to portray to others bloggers as criminals or something. It's just that not all messages are not worth comment and publish all the comments are worth it. One must be cautious at the same time to comments and commenting on other blogs.

If the reader has to do something, we will use the contact form. If you have any unique contribution to make, it provides via the contact form and edit the message and include it. He is now giving more value to the person who shares their ideas.

If you want to build a community, the creation of a forum is much better that your readers can interact freely with others. Which has a forum section for your blog is also a good measure.

Remove tip: Do not worry too much about interaction with the reader. Provide quality content, exchange ideas and improvise.

Ugly Truth # 5: Practice does not make perfect

Many blogs offer this advice in writing. Write, write more and write more.

I really do not understand the concept. If you mix the wrong ingredients in the laboratory to make a new compound, just can not do. What good do it over and over again, only to fail each time?

You should use some sort of feedback mechanism to constantly improve the workflow process. If you repeat the error, you get better at making the mistake, not avoids.

Having the help of friends, family or even pay others to provide constructive criticism. The forums are a great way to gather information for your site. And it's totally free too.

Remove Council: Use a feedback mechanism to enhance your blog.

Ugly Truth # 6: You do not need a lot of tips for blogs

Sad, but true. It is not necessary to read the tips blog every day. Keep the basics in mind.

Understand and listen to their readers (through analysis, feedback etc.)
Write quality content articles and the murderer
Promote your blog through guest posts or other means
Observe what others in their place is

I'm not saying you should not read the line advice. It's good that you have an understanding of these tips, having worked for some. However, it is necessary to work for you.

All you have to do is start doing things his way. If you read articles on blogs and wait for the right time to start a blog after grabbing everything at that time will never come.

Nothing can teach better than experience. Go ahead, blogs about his own way, and see what works and what does not.

What do you think will add to the list of ugly truths? Do you think that some points are not as ugly as they seem? Speak up!
