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. Because you’re going to throw in the towel. Sooner or later.
Well, let’s fix that, shall we?
There’s Nothing Passive About Blogging
Most bloggers throw in the towel the moment they realize how difficult it all is: how much time and effort is required of them to become successful.
The truth is… blogging is easy. Anyone can do it.
But to do it and be successful? To grow an actual audience? To have an impact?
It takes massive action.
Blogging’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.
Lukewarm is no good.
Doing things at 50% is going to ensure you get only a 10% return on your investment.
But It’s Not Impossible Either…
If you believe you can’t, you just won’t.
It’s as simple as that.
While it’s certainly difficult, and I’m just not going to sugarcoat it for you, you can still become massively successful as a blogger.
But first of all, you’ve got to stop lying to yourself.
Stop lying. To yourself. To others. In the comments section of your blog. On other people’s blogs. In your about page. Stop lying.
“I don’t care if people read my stuff or not.”
“I blog for me, myself, and I.”
“All the profitable niches are over saturated.”
“The game is rigged.”
You can’t handle the truth because you keep trying to run away from it.
Impossible is only two letters too long, but, oh boy, how difficult it is to remove those two letters.
