[Blogging Mindset] Don’t You Dare Give Up Before You Quit1 min read

If you’re blogging now, and it feels like no one gives a damn about your words, if it feels like an uphill battle you can’t possibly win, then you’ve already given up.

Even if you keep posting content.

Even if you keep reading other blogs and networking.


Because you don’t think it’s worth it. Because you’re scared, disappointed, frustrated, angry. But you don’t want to quit, so you keep posting content from time to time.

Most bloggers quit in their minds the minute they realize how difficult it all is: how much time and effort is required of them to become successful.

It’s not “passive income,” it’s not just writing when you feel inspired, it’s not just commenting once in a while on other blogs.

They give up long before they quit.

Don’t do that.

Lukewarm is no good.

Doing things at 50% is going to ensure you get 10% back.

The moment you decide it’s not worth it, it’s going to be so. You’re going to stop writing your best ideas into existence, you’re going to stop writing as if your words could change the world, you’re going to stop having fun.

And nobody wants to read the words of someone who doesn’t believe in them. Trust me.

  1. Wow. Great article. I loved the title, it sucked me right in. I can’t think of anything more practical in the way of advice to keep writing. You’re right to say most of us give up long before we quit!

  2. Thanks so much for those words. For sometimes now my blog has not seen any visitors or even one liked and I got scared. I didn’t not plan given up but I was really worried that my writing is not good enough. Well with your advice, I will keep this in mind. Once again, thanks Cristian Mihai
