Many bloggers think that blogging is easy as a piece of cake and Many bloggers think that they can get rich via blogging in just a matter of months. But are you sure that those are true? Check out these 5 things I’ve compiled when I was doing my morning ritual (Again Hehehehe ). You probably didn’t know about these things:
1. Blogging is not a get rich quick scheme
Most people think that if they blog and post everyday, they’ll get rich quick (Because they see a lot of problogger’s income increasing every month). But the truth is, you won’t. Blogging isn’t a “get rich quick scheme??? If you want some proof, dig the archives of those money making blog and you’ll see that they were blogging for years. Yes, years with the “s??? not months, not a year, but YEARS.
2. It’s not that easy to blog
I confess, I thought blogging was easy when I first started. I thought that all it takes is to write an article everyday and post it. But after months of blogging, I started receiving mails, comments and questions that need to be answered. It always took me half an hour everyday answering those mails and e-mails. What more if you have been blogging for years?
3. Blogging won’t make you that rich
Yes, you can earn decent amount of income through blogging but it WON’T make you rich. Just imagine how much you earn through AdSense in a blog, about $1 per day for 500 unique visitors? $10 per day for a popular blog? IMO That isn’t enough.
For me, blogging is just a way popularizing your self.
P.S Exemptions on network of blogs
4. Admit it, it’s addicting to blog
When you get the hang of it, more likely you’ll get addicted. You check your stats every minute, you change your theme once in a while, you check your admin panel for new comments, new links, etc…
What’s the use of all of those?! When you can just write an article? Or you could build links? What I mean in here is that you should have a schedule. Probloggers do it. Successful bloggers do it and you too should do it!
5. Blogging is a Sport
The longer you play, the better you get. Blogging is just like a sport. You blog more, you get better more.
If you want to be a Problogger, you will need to practice. But remember, it takes longer than you expect just like sports. It takes years to excel in a specific niche.
Blogging is not a “get rich quick scheme??? like what most people think, because it takes time to blog. You can get burned out in the middle of your success so it requires guts to blog for years. And most of all, blogging won’t make you filthy rich. You could get rich, but not filthy. All in all, like what most internet marketers think of blogging. It’s just a way of popularizing your self.
