How do you keep yourself motivated in blogging?

by rupmini 14 replies
Making money from a Blog has never been easy n consistent. I now spend lots of hours marketing my blog, products n services inorder to make money than I used to spend at my day job.

I guess, my passion for blogging somehow keeps me motivated n energized!

How do you find balance n keep yourself motivated in this industry?

    Writing is in my blood. When I don't write something, my conscious bothers me. That's why I am going to start my blog very soon. I have so much that I want to write about, so hopeful, my motivation will keep at this level.

    One thing that helps me is recognizing that building a business is a process. Where I am today is building the foundation for my future.

    First thing you should be sure that all you want is write and share that information with others. And keep motivating your visitors, you will gain motivation automatically.

    Keeping away from it usually does the trick.

    I devour cosmic hypnosis. Gets me high and the dividends are humongous.

    Very true.

    The power of the cosmic master is undeniable.

    I wonder how he gets inspired to churn out these gems and hypnosis.

    Sit down and plan a content strategy for your blog. Write down every basic to advanced topic you can cover.

    Constant social media updates can be very distracting and unhealthy. They will steer you away from the very goals you are trying to achieve. Consider taking a break from the social medias

    My two main niches are self help/motivation and success.

    Teaching the first one really helps keep me motivated as I'm teaching others to be.

    Then, I'm obsessed, I love what I do. I'd do it for free. It's like being on a permanent vacation because I never go to work, it's just play.

    By the way; that's one of the things I teach people. Find a niche that you love so much that you'd do it for free. That's what you need to be doing.

      That was a great advice!
      I love the process of blogging, but the results seem to be pretty slow.
      At times, It's really hard to do something without expecting anything in return (spite of putting in an enormous amount of effort and time).
      I'm happy that you achieved this state!
      May be I should learn to work smart rather than hard.

        Here's a little something that you may wish to consider.

        It's not about how many blog posts you write.

        Instead, focus on creating fantastic posts with info graphics and great images etc...

        Then, promote the heck out of that post.

        Use the 80/20 rule. 20% of your time creating posts and 80% of your time promoting them.

        Not to be a smarty, but, that's why they call it marketing.

    After maintaining multiple blogs without a defined strategy and not getting anywhere, the time finally came when I realized that I needed a strategy.

    Having that made the difference (and it involved ditching some of the blogs in order to be able to focus).
