On a daily basis I receive two types of e-mails:
- from people who are literally begging me to follow their blog, or promote their blog.
- from people who want to complain that blogging is hard work, and that they want to quit.
Here’s the thing: blogging is, indeed, hard work. It’s not for everyone. It’s not for the entitled, for the emotionally weak, for the impatient, for the lazy, for the “oh, but I am too busy.”
If you want to be a successful blogger, you must either find a way or make one.
This means that you have to punch those damn keys until you can’t feel your fingers anymore.
This means that you have to find creative ways to attract people to your blog, not just guilt trip them into taking a five second look.
This means that you have to constantly learn more about the art and craft of blogging, whether it’s content creation, content marketing, content promotion, selling content, building relationships, web design, product design, and a bunch of other types of design.
This means you have to edit your posts until you can’t stand to read them anymore.
This means that you have to want it a bit more than just about everyone else.
I can almost hear you complaining over the internet. I can almost hear you rationalizing your lack of success.
You either find a way or make one. You either have results, or you have excuses.
It’s as simple as that.
