Why The Majority Of People Fail To Make A Living As A Blogger


One of the most common reactions I get when I tell people that I work as a full time blogger, is one of jealousy. It would seem that almost everyone I encounter on a regular basis wishes that they could make their living working from home and pursuing a career that they created rather than working for ‘the man’. Blogging offers them that and a lot more.

My usual reaction to their reaction, is normally to tell them that there’s no reason they can’tbecome full time bloggers too and to thus invite them to give it a go. As a result, this person – whoever they may be – will then normally go on to try and do just that and create a site of their own. They then show me proudly and start writing on it regularly.

But they don’t tend to succeed. In fact no one who has told me they want to be a blogger full time has been a success. Why? Well often it comes down to a few predictable factors. Read on to find out where most people are going wrong…

Oh, the Time and Effort…

The main problem that most people have when it comes to blogging, is that they approach it with the entirely wrong attitude. The common perception here, is that blogging offers a handy ‘get rich quick’ scheme for anyone who wants to make money fast but not have to wear a suit. They think that they can just create a website and then watch as the traffic comes flooding in. Perhaps they’ll write a few articles a week, and perhaps their site will look quite nice, but it’s not enough.

What you have to understand is that blogging and SEO aren’t easy. If you want to be a hit then you need to treat them as real full time jobs rather than as part time leisure pursuits. That means writing several articles a day, it means tirelessly pursuing SEO, and it means pumping money into your project as well.  And then you need to persevere…

Making it Easier



This then means that blogging and SEO is quite a gamble. You’re going to be committing a lot of time and money to the pursuit, so it’s kind of important that it goes well and you don’t end up wasting both. That’s why you should try to come up with a blog idea that represents the minimal risk and maximum reward. Make sure that you have a popular niche, and that you have a good form of monetisation in place as well to quickly convert your visitors into cash. The sooner you start seeing results, the easier it will be to commit.

Create the Time and Passion

Also important is to make sure that you are physically able to commit yourself to that much work and dedication. You’re going to need tremendous sticking power, so to help yourself, make certain that the topic you’re writing on is one that you find genuinely interesting and that you enjoy writing about. This way it won’t feel like a chore and you’ll be better able to face writing countless articles on it. Remove obstacles that might be getting in your way by reducing the other jobs you need to do in the evenings, and make sure everyone around you understands the time and effort you’re going to be putting in.

Taking Baby Steps

Finally, consider writing yourself a plan of action that you can follow every day. Set daily goals in terms of the articles you are going to write, the sites you are going to submit links to etc. Forget about the long-term plan, just focus on the small manageable steps every day. If you follow these targets every day, you’ll wake up one morning and find that your site is a hit.

Don't Forget to Pray

How to invite All facebook friends in 1 click

, A Facebook fan page is such an important part of promoting your business or blog or band or anything. Social media is now a days “part and parcel” of life. But how much of mouse tapping does it take to invite all your friends in one go, all my fellow bloggers know t
hat very well. So here I’ve found this excellent way to invite all the Facebook friends in just one click.


With the old Facebook design, there used to exist many Google Chrome extensions which used to easily let Page Admins to select all friends for sending a request to like a page. But with the new design, none of them worked. Inviting friends to like a page is such an important part. I already invited all my friends (800+) for many of my fellow bloggers and believe me it’s a big pain to select each and everyone with one click right on each of their profile picture in the list that pops up exactly just as shown in the image. Today one of my friends who is an emerging Guitarist made me an advertiser of the fa…
