This week my negative karma kicked in if you haven’t noticed yet by my last posts. But the reason I am writing this way is because I don’t want you to quit blogging. Motivation is the key! And there are ways to keep your self motivated not to quit blogging.
Here are few examples how I kept my self motivated in situations where I said “i’ll just quit!!”:
I started reading inspirational blogs and one of my favorite is Problogger(How Do You Stay Motivated) there is not one day (for past 2 years) that his posts did not lead me to some kind of positive motivation.
Money should NOT be your real motivation, imagine you blog for 2 years and you only managed to pay off your hosting! And then right before you wanted to quit blogging some top post keyword of yours landed as no.1 in google the next day, which brought you 52.000+ visitors that day.
Blogging is time consuming but then as I said in earlier post, you don’t have to post every day , people don’t expect you to.Try to write at least once or twice a week grab 10 minutes of your time and blog something in your niche. Take DosDosh for example, he writes about once or twice a week since he started blogging and look what his blog became (Top 100 in technorati, over 16.000+ Rss subscribers).
Blogs that keep me motivated:
Social Networks like Twitter, Plurk, MySpace, FaceBook …. can keep you motivated too! People constantly ask “when are you going to post something?, Why didn’t you post anything last week?, How can I advertise on your blog?”
So find the way to keep your self motivated , and motivate others to blog in positive way even though you might feel the negative energy inside your self.
