5 Possible Reasons Bloggers Fail

The increasing number of failed bloggers has prompted a lot of people to ask questions and today my “5 Possible Reasons Bloggers Fail” will give them a new beginning.

Anyways, it happens often and that’s why apparently 85% of bloggers are not successful; the truth must be told and about to tell you my own version.

I have taken time to compile 5 possible reasons bloggers fail.

Why Beginner Bloggers Fail

1) You don’t have any passion for blogging :

This is one of the most major 5 possible reasons bloggers fail,whenever you want to venture into blogging , you should have passion for it.

You should venture into blogging because there is something you enjoy doing or something you love discussing which will be useful to your visitors out there.

Blogging without passion is like eating when you don’t have appetite.
Forcing yourself to do what you don’t want to.

If you want to create a successful blog, you must have a passion.

All the bloggers out there that become successful had a passion,and all their visitors loved it because it was beneficial to them.

My passion in blogging has always been to explore the innovation of blogging related things, entrepreneurship and internet marketing.

I had always wanted my blog to be perceived as fun and approachable and also make complex topics understandable.

You’ll find it much easier to become successful with a blog you’re much interested in and had a passion for.

2) You don’t research :

Alright, I’m gonna be truthful to you today, blogging wasn’t something I jumped into all of a sudden, I spent almost half of the year trying to know where I belong so as to get everything right.

Of course if it were someone else, the person wouldn’t waste a minute starting a blog because of the excitement.

But don’t get too excited before your excitement makes you to end up doing nothing.

I researched and revolved around the internet trying to know how blogging was like, how fun it was blogging, the benefits of blogging and what I can blog about and also what my mates are doing as well.

Now, most bloggers find it difficult to research before they start blogging. No successful blogger would boldly tell me ” I didn’t research “

…. And today some of those bloggers that didn’t research, it was widely contributed to their failure.

Like I said previously, blogging is not a child’s play. Learn to play your wing well and celebrate with your friends later in future.

For one to be successful, you need commitment, patience and hard work.

Start your research now, read a lot of people’s experience and mistakes, surf the internet and learn real good things.

3)You blog for money alone :

Am I wrong? No,I’m not. Our topic was ” 5 possible reasons bloggers fail” And one of them is ” You blog for money alone ” , that is true.

People heard ” Blogging is profitable ” and the next minute , Adamu has started creating a blog, Obi followed him, and Adaku followed as well. This is serious; Are you for real?

It’s high time you learnt that making money through blogging is not a magic!. You need to work your ass out.

Don’t let people tell you,you can make money in blogging overnight, totally a scam.

This article you’re reading right now, I know how many hours it took me to organize and publish it. (Lol.. Thank God I write in hours not in days .. *wink*)

I was on Facebook when someone updated his status saying “Blogging is cool, Adsense just paid me my monthly earnings”.

After some minutes, someone commented and said ” Wow, I want to join too” .. Funny right?

This is how they end up messing their selves up and at the end they just give up because their aims didn’t just happen.

The best way to do this and succeed is to blog naturally, always put your visitors in mind.

When you blog naturally, profit will come naturally at a later date, I promise you that.

Although there are persons that blog for money alone, but they know what to do in other to make that happen, all they have to do is play their role first and the rest shall be added.

4) You don’t interact with other bloggers :

This is also one of the temporary 5 possible reasons bloggers fail.

You should form a habit of interacting with other bloggers and not just putting yourself first or keeping wings high.

The advantages of interacting with other bloggers include :

  • It makes you get noticed.
  • The keep you informed.
  • You know what’s happening around you.
  • You get help from them.
  • … And many more.

Some years ago, I never learnt to interact with other bloggers, my wings were so high, I needed no guidance. I felt I can do all alone and I felt on top.

But one day, I searched something on Google, I never found a blog that solved the problem.

But I saw a forum that was discussing about it. Then I realized how enjoyable it can be relating with other bloggers, you’ll never be alone, a lot of people are out there waiting to assist you.

Back to you, are your wings high? Learn to bring it down,interact with other bloggers, don’t feel shy or you think you’re a geek.Its for the best.

You’ll love it,I promise.
Moreover, though am a professional blogger, but I feel there are more to learn and I still feel like a newbie.

5) You’re not serious with your blogging career :

This is also one of the reasons why most bloggers fail in their blogging career and if care isn’t taken you’ll end up been like them.

This is something I should begin to discuss so deeply. If you’re serious with your blogging career or not, you should be able to know that.

Now take a little moment and ask yourself, “Am I serious with my blogging career?’

When you’re serious about blogging, you burn the midnight candles, you see nothing around you but blogging, you’re too fond of it and can’t let go. You seriously can’t wipe it off your memory.

If you’re reading this,it’s time to take your blogging career to the next level without looking backwards.

Although, there will be some hurdles along the way,but you’ll have to hold fast in your passion and look forward.
