This is gonna be a short and sweet post on how to blog with passion.
Blogging, as we all know is an interesting career, but not an easy journey, yet the passion blogging makes it easy to travel.
The journey to a thousand miles begins with a single step.
-This is a quote by a Chinese philosopher, Lao-tzu.
You’ve made your first step in blogging but frustrated at the middle of the journey. These tips I’ll be sharing with you will maintain or increase the passion you have for blogging and my advice for you is to implement them.
Follow top bloggers:
Probloggers are at the position they are now because of their determination and passion. They started just like us and they did not give up. Most of these bloggers do share their income reports and their blogging journey which can be a great challenge and at the same time trigger your passion for blogging. Follow those bloggers, try to get the direction of every tunnels they passed through in other to get to where they are and implement it on your blog. You can check out my list of 20 successful bloggers and what they have to offer.
Read inspirational books:
This might be out of point but reading inspirational books can boost your passion, not for blogging alone but also for anything you wish to have the passion for. If you feel depressed or fed up of blogging due to one reason or the other, inspirational books can help. You can also hop from one blog to another, you might come across blogs that will trigger the passion you have for blogging
Don’t give your blog a break but blog consistently even if there’s no passion, try to force yourself into doing it. It doesn’t matter if the traffic is not coming or there’s no interaction on your blog (which is not possible if you work hard for it), Just put this little quote at the center of your mind “Never give up”. One day bloggers are going to look up to you and you’re also going to share your success journey to inspire them.
Visualize the future:
Sometimes you need to wear coats that are much bigger than your size, who knows, you’ll grow bigger to fit the coat’s size and eventually outgrow it. All I’m trying to say here is “Visualize the future” think of where your blog will be in a month time, a year time or two years time. You wouldn’t want your blog to go down the drain by that time, instead you want it to reach the peak and go beyond your imagination. All you have to do is to work towards it, don’t just sit and think your dream come through. Avoid distraction but focus and try not to get your mind off the road.
