[Blogging Mindset] Are You The Next Blogstar?

When I started my main blog back in 2012 I knew one thing and one thing only: I would never give up.

No matter what.

I thought that I’d better die trying than live with the regret that I could have, yet I was too scared and didn’t.

While the tactics and tips and tricks that make the basis of many articles on this blog are helpful, the bottom line always comes down to the work.

It’s about perseverance. To be serious about the words you share with the world. Serious enough to even starve from time to time. And I’m not just throwing an old cliché around here.

Because, the truth is, no matter if you end up becoming a proper blogstar or not, at the end of the day, you are alone with your work. You have to live with it, sleep with it, suffer the consequences of it, and stand by it.

Don’t go for the cheap laugh. Get the real one.

Don’t think about a few followers and likes and comments, think about eternity.

Do the work. Do your best, even when nobody is watching. Maybe it’s “especially” when no one is watching.

There’s no other way. No substitute. No shortcut.

If you want it, you got to do whatever it takes to have it.

  1. This resonates with me, I just started my blog because I always struggled with getting out of my own headspace. I over think things a lot and most times I end up not doing what said I was going to do. It’s my worst fear right now, that the same thing will happen to my blog. Your words are an inspiration, thank you for taking the time to share them. 🙂

  2. I have no doubt that it comes down to the work, a belief that you have something important to say. As my brother-in-law told me once (about starting a business), first and foremost you have to have a fire in your gut. And, the self-discipline to do what it takes to bring it to the table. Thank you, Cristian. And if anyone doubts any. of it, they should read your other blog too. I admire your writing.
