Blogging success is very simple. – quit blogging
But it is not very easy for most people.
They don’t know what to do and differentiate themselves from the remaining crowd. It is why most bloggers fail.
If you are thinking about quitting blogging, this article is for you.
The most important question in blogging is – when to quit blogging?
It’s not so easy question to answer, but we will find out the reasons why bloggers have to quit at the right times and move on.
So when should you quit blogging?
Though there are many reasons to quit blogging, we will discuss the advanced reasons to quit blogging to save your energy, time and money.
If you don’t have passion
Seriously, you can’t build a profitable blog if you don’t have passion.
You will just work hard to get more traffic, bring more leads and use various monetization methods – they simply won’t work because you never cared about your readership or unique selling points.
How on earth can you make money without helping other bloggers to succeed?
I firmly believe that, “The money you create online is directly proportional to the amount of individuals you help”. So try to give your best to help the blogosphere in order to make money out of your blogging efforts.
There’s no other way to make money online, you must have a vision, skills and selling tactics to build a blog that makes money in the long run.
If you don’t love what you are writing
Ask yourself this question – am I loving the topics that I write on my blogs?
If not, it’s time to quit blogging and consider any other business or job. If you are willing to work hard and love the topics you write, you will never quit blogging even if you find hard times to make money.
I have few blogs where I worked so hard for over 2 years, yet I haven’t make even a penny from them, did I quit blogging?
No… I analyzed the things that went wrong, and I understood that few blogs don’t make quick money, they take some time to take off. Before thinking to quit blogging, you should take a note of it – analyze what’s going wrong, if you are consistent, you will definitely see ripe fruits.
If you don’t get any product sales or income
It becomes hard to run a blog that doesn’t get any sales or income even after working hard.
But understand the reasons – are you targeting the right keywords? Is your market is worth making money? What methods your competitors are using to make money out of their blogs?
If you tried and tested all of them and still unable to make any income from your blogs, then it’s time to quit!
If you don’t get traffic even after working hard
Traffic is lifeblood for any blog.
Without traffic, nobody knows that your blog exists.
Most new blogs don’t get much traffic because, no one links or talks about the sites. Try guest posting or blog commenting to get quality back links and get top results in the search engines.
Here are few surefire ways to bring traffic to any blog.
- Blog commenting (try to comment on 10 to 20 blogs/day
- Guest posting
- Write SEO content
- Make appealing blog design
- Link to other articles
Even after working hard to bring traffic to your blogs if you don’t notice any growth – quit blogging.
Pro tip: Bringing traffic to new blogs takes a lot of time, I’m saying this strongly because I have built so many blogs and I never got huge traffic from day 1. Some blogs took even a year to get 1000 unique visits every day. So, persistence is the key, if you are not patient, you won’t succeed – simple as that!
Conclusion: Before thinking to quit blogging, make sure you have worked all the way to make your blog successful and you spent enough time to make it go viral.
Without bring attention, it is very hard to get noticed in the crowded blogosphere. Or if you simply lost interest, it’s always better to quit blogging and move on.
