“What can I really learn from small kids regarding blogging?”
Did you get a similar thought after reading the title?
I know that most of you will think in a similar way after seeing the title. But I am sure that you will agree with me that there are really many things to learn from little kids after reading my article.
Here are 5 things that bloggers can learn from small kids:
1. First walk says ‘Never give up’.
Have you ever seen a child’s first walk? Those moments are really awesome to watch. Although their cute legs shake and make them fall every time, even then they stand up and try to walk once again. They never give up until they becomes able to walk properly. It’s all about continuous efforts which makes every kid walk. It’s their believe on themselves that they can do it.
Same applies in blogging too. You can’t build a better blog without consistency or self believe. Thousands of blogs are emerging each and every day, but only very few of them are getting success. The reason behind it is that many newbie blogger are quitting blogging just after facing some small hurdles, that too in frustration.
Starting from Bill gates of Microsoft to Steve Jobs of Apple, everyone faced problems and failures in their initial stages. They are successful in their own fields just because of their continuous efforts to overcome hurdles. You can’t simply climb the ladder of success unless you wear the costume of failure. It all about continuous efforts which will make you and your blog successful. So, never give up.
2. Not getting distracted while working.
Normally kids won’t get distracted while they are working on something, because they won’t care about tomorrow. They just love to enjoy the present moments. They won’t have any metal tensions or stress to stop them from working, which makes them not to get distracted and stay focused.
Though we can’t stay focused while working on our blogs all the time, we should try our best to stay focused. We should never bother about our personal problems while writing a blog post, otherwise it will definitely affect your work. If you’re not able to concentrate on your work, then try to meditate often. This will work like charm and will help you to work without any sort of distractions.
3. Curious attitude to learn new things.
Kids are curious about everything they see. Normally it’s seen that grown up kids ask tons of questions each day. I still remember those days of my childhood when I used to ask hell lot of questions to my father. He used to answer most of them and of course, sometimes he gets irritated because of my silly and nonsense questions. :D
Kids love to explore new things and also like to know more about those things. In the same way we blogger should also try to spend some time in reading others blogs and learning new things. You might be good at something, but you can’t be good at everything. So try to learn as many things as possible.
The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. ― Albert Einstein
Learning new things daily will boost your confidence level. But don’t blindly follow all the suggestions of others, but try to experiment them on your own. At times you may fail, but definitely you will learn a lot from your mistakes and failures.
4. Kids are Frank at everything.
Normally kids won’t lie. They say what they hear and tells what they know. The does what elders do and answers what they know. They have a very frank behaviour.
A blogger should also be like that. He should always provide genuine information because only then he will be able to create a loyal circle of followers. Even a single false information can leave a bad impression of his in front of his readers. A blogger should always give more preference to his readers than search engines. Just for the sake of attracting visitors they should never try to convey false information.
5. Love for their own things.
You already got it. Like the small kids love their things we should also love our blog. We should not do things which can harm our blog. We should not think it as a money making machine but should love it for what it provides to us. Our blog teaches us many things and if we love our blog then we can do even better works for it’s development.
Not just kids, there are many things around us which teaches us something. It’s all about how you receive it. You should always try to see the positive side. Even the rose plant has thorns in it, but if you bother about the thorns then you will not be able to enjoy the beauty of it. In a similar manner, if you fear about failures then will not be able to enjoy the happiness of success.
