6 Surprising Signs Why You Will Quit Blogging

Blogging is becoming more and more competitive and popular by every day passing, which is the reason more and more people are getting into this business. New bloggers mostly think of this business as a shortcut to make money and step into it. But sooner or later, they eventually quit blogging.
Are you one of those people? Are you ever going to quit blogging?
Here are the five signs that you will quit blogging.
6 Surprising Signs Why You Will Quit Blogging

1. You don’t have time!

Everyone is busy in this world!
Blogging takes too much time! You’ll quit blogging soon if you don’t have time to blog. Every time you sit down to blog, something “more important” comes up and you just can’t spend time on your blog.
If you’re spending more time on social method or useless activites that have nothing to do with your blog. That’s when you’ll quit blogging.

2. You are always in Blogger’s Block:

Blogger’s block is when you can’t think of an idea of what to write. You lose the ability to work on your blog or producing content.
If you are always in blogger’s block, you are always struggling to get new ideas and you never know what next you are going to write about, then things are pointing towards a dark side for you.
If a blogger is fully determined to become famous and successful, he finally finds a way to get new ideas and keep going, but those who always complain that they don’t get ideas are the ones who have low levels of determination and they are destined to fail and quit blogging.

3. You hate to read other blogs:

If you find it boring to search your topics and read other people’s blogs, you are done.
In order to be different, unique and stand out in blogosphere you need to have killer quality content and the only way to produce killer quality content is by searching the topic a lot and then pouring a lot of information on the reader by using little number of words.
Hence, if you don’t love reading, you will soon stop loving writing and typing & saying good-bye to this business.

4. Your posts are not proofread:

One of the simplest ways to tell if a blogger will succeed or quit is by looking at his articles.
If you find no mistakes at all both in spellings and grammar, you can say that he is a horse of long ride. ;)
But if articles are filled with errors, it is safe to say that the guy who wrote this piece doesn’t really love to write, which is the reason he didn’t take the safe step and re-read his own articles and instead published as it was with errors and misspellings. 

5. You don’t have a Top Level Domain:

Blogging at sub domain indicates that blogger is not really serious about blogging and he will eventually disappear. Another reason why blogger with sub domains quit is because they have nothing to lose since; they have not invested anything at all.
While in case of top level domain, bloggers think thousands of times before saying good-bye to business. Hence, if you want to be a successful blogger and keep yourself safe from temptation of quitting blogging, get a top level domain as soon as possible.

6. You don’t have Niche Blog:

The most popular reason for ending careers of many bloggers is not having a clear plan. They don’t even have a clear concept of niche.
Such blogger publish anything and everything they want, but still don’t succeed because no one cares about such blogs. This is a sure-fire indication that blogger will go away very soon.

Don’t worry!

The reason behind writing this post is not to make you feel like quiting blogging. These are just signs that you might quit blogging sooner than later. So you should avoid these.
To keep you motivated. I found a quote. I’m sure, you’ll love this.

How To Make Money with Grow Rich Forum – Adsense Revenue Sharing Forum…….

I’m feeling pretty good today because I just found a place that I have been looking for quite sometime.

That is a forum.
This not an old one, but is making progress like wildfire. It is really friendly with bloggers and has been set up specifically to help them out and make them some extra bucks too. We all have used forum for one purpose or other on some time in our lives. We consider them as a place for interacting and getting help from others and also generating some traffic to our blog.
That’s all. Isn’t it?
Actually, this forum has something special. Something that not many other forums are willing to give you which is that you get paid to post. That’s right. You post and you get paid.
How To Make Money with Grow Rich Forum - Adsense Revenue Sharing Forum

Why I recommend? 

I’m not only going to explain how to get paid, but some other amazing points of forum of this blog too so stay with me.

1. Compensation Plan:

Getting paid to post is called compensation plan there. It is as simple as you can probably imagine. When signing up, they ask you for your Adsense Ad Client ID and Ad Slot ID. And, that’s it. 
How it works?
You give them your ID’s and after that, you are required to make at least one post and your ads along with ads of other members will start to show up on the right side of forum. The more you post the chances of getting more and more page views increase which means more money.
And, yes any time someone clicks on any ad displayed using your ID’s, you get paid. And, sweetest thing is that it is not against the terms of service of Google Adsense. They fully allow you to do that. Hence, you simply get paid for helping others and even getting help from others.

2. Blogging Section:

There is a section focused on blogging where people ask anything and everything regarding blogging. These things include talk about bounce rate, blog design, blog coding, increase in blog traffic and other problems. This is a surefire place to get solutions for all of your blogging problems.

3. SEO Section:

SEO is as important for blogging as is oxygen for human life. :D
Hence, we all need to be as good as we can in this particular section. But no matter how much we learn in this field, it won’t be enough because search engine algorithm changes frequently and we can run into problems very often. This section of forum includes different tips, solution of SEO problems and many other things to help you make your blog more search engine friendly. 

4. Social Networking Section:

Social media is just as important as SEO. No blog can succeed with search engine or social traffic only because the only way to succeed is to have both of them. This forum has help on this point and a separate section has been created for this purpose.
You can ask anything related to social networking and you will surely get help.

5. Adsense Section:

Everyone wants to eat the fruit of his efforts and blogging fruit is money. Any good quality blog can be monetized and can actually make good money.
Adsense is the best money making machine on the Internet at this time and has a lot of buzz because of their policies and standards to accept a site into program. New bloggers need a lot of guidance before being able to be accepted and forum’s Adsense section has been focused on educating people about just that.
Take a look at screenshotb below.

I’m really in love with this forum ever since I found it. I am spending my most time posting there because this is increasing the chances of making more and more money and I’m working as hard as I possibly can.
I strongly suggest you to give it a try and I bet you will love it.

How To Get Maximum Benefit From Your Guest Post…

Getting more and more traffic is a dream of all bloggers. This dream comes true only when you do hard work properly. Blogging is not an easy job to do. Well it’s not so hard when you do it properly. Guest posting is really a superb way to get maximum traffic to your blog. But if you don’t know how to guest post and where to guest post than your guest post will not generate a good number of traffic to you. There are some secret tips and some guidelines which you have to follow and you will absolutely get a good number of traffic towards your blog.How To Get Maximum Benefit From Your Guest Post

1. Choose A Right Blog

This is most important part to get maximum benefit from your guest post. The blog must have PR (Google PageRank) Must be 3 or greater. Alexa rank must be less than 1 lack. This blog (ComLuv) is a heaven of guest blogger and you will get a huge lot of traffic from here so this is a highly recommended blog for guest posting. If you choose a worst blog which have no traffic then definitely you are not getting even a single visitor to your blog from it so be safe that the blog you choosen for guest post is right and it will bring you a good traffic.

2. Content Is King

I think you heard this sentence at least 20 times before you started blogging and now again. Why it’s so important? It’s because readers read the blog for getting knowledge not for wasting their time. Why the content of a guest post must be quality? It’s because you have to get approval for the post to be live on that blog. Its not the only reason but there is a more. If you will write superb content then the post will be popular on that blog for sure. It will be in light and more people will attract to it. They will read your post and will be impressed from it. They would like to read more posts by you and your blog have them so readers will go to your blog.

3. Building Backlinks

Backlinks give you help in two ways. They attract new readers to your blog and they also help in Search Engine Optimization. To rank first in search engines, High PR backlinks are necessary to have and they are also hard to build. So choose a blog which gives you minimum 2 backlinks in author bio and 1 in article.

4. Author Bio

“First impression is last impression.” Your bio must be spectacular and your blog’s link must be there. If people like your post then they will surely like to know more about you and connect with you and your blog to get such unique articles daily so try to make an author bio which attracts people use catchy words in it. You are about to get maximum so you also have to do maximum. Make the author bio blossom so people will surely like to visit your blog.

My Final Words

In every job you have to work hard and in blogging you also have to do so. No one can lead success without hard work. Do as more as you can for your blog and one day you will be in top. Yes, never lose hope. “Try and try but don’t cry.” Here is another small tip that before you put your post for review, Do read it as a visitor of a blog not like you who wrote the post. Check the post as someone else written it and you are reading it. Do change where you think its need to be changed and that’s it. So now do the guest post and get maximum benefit from it.

Little-Known Ways To Make The Most Of Social Media.

Most people that do anything with blogging, marketing, or SEO have a good idea of the importance of capitalising on Social Media sites to increase rankings, sales, and consumer awareness. If your website is powered by WordPress, I highly recommend you to check out these best social sharing plugins for WordPress. These plugins are easy to install and setup, and best of all they will make your website more engaging!
 Since every article they have read stated the importance of it, they added the ‘like’ and ‘share’ buttons as told. If they are diligent they have sent out a ‘tweet’ as they added content and shared their posts on their personal Facebook and the blog Facebook fan page as well.
Little-Known Ways To Make The Most Of Social Media
So they are doing an excellent job of utilising the social media to leverage ranking, sales, and consumer awareness, right?
Wrong!
They have done what 80% of all bloggers and companies do.  They have added some icons to a webpage and spent a couple hours one afternoon setting up the social media accounts, and are waiting for it to ‘catch fire’ and work magic for them. Only problem is that it never does.
The Plain Truth…
The plain truth is if it were that easy to do, and as easy as most of the blog posts seem to indicate it should be it would be of no use at all.
If it worked like that then it would have equal value to every website thereby cancelling the positive marketing affects you are striving for.  In my personal opinion the only thing worse than not using the social media at all is placing the icons on your blog or website then not using them correctly.
Social Media is a group of interactive communities.
The only way to reap a benefit from them is by interacting. To put in in perspective let’s consider basic human nature because when dealing with the social media you are working on a people to people level more than a business to people level. Look at the following examples and see how they correspond in social media courtesies.
You are walking down the street and pass by another person. There are several possibilities of what transpires.
Little-Known Ways To Make The Most Of Social Media
You both glance at each other, ensure there is room to pass and go on your way.
A few seconds later neither have any memory of passing each other and neither good nor bad impression of the other as a person.
  • This is the equivalent of having no social media presence on your blog. Aside from an unknown mutual interest or need that brought you by happenstance to the same general place at the same time you have no personal bond or affinity.
You glance at each other, make eye contact and exchange a pleasantry of “Good Afternoon”.
You both feel like the other person ‘seemed nice’ and that it must be a friendly area. You will not remember it clearly but when you think back it will seem like it was a nice afternoon.
  • This is the equivalent of having a social media buttons and politely encouraging their use. It gives the impression that the input and notice of the visitor is important. When you see a tweet or share you acknowledge it and thank them.
You glance at each other and you say “good afternoon”, the other person averts eyes and continues on by.
You immediately wonder what was wrong with the other person or yourself and want to be someplace else. If somebody asks about your afternoon you will immediately remember the obnoxious person.
  • This is unfortunately where most social media interactions fall on the web. It may not be quite as cognizant as that but it is the same effect. They visited your site, shared or joined your Facebook page because they were happy with that they saw but when they ‘followed you’ or said hello on your page they received no acknowledgement. The only impression in their mind is they were polite to you and you did not return the same courtesy.
The entire premise of social media is to get people talking about you, your blog, or your product. It is virtually impossible to get people talking about these things (in a positive light) if you are not talking to them.
If they follow you on twitter but you never ‘tweet’ then there is no conversation or interaction for them to talk about. If they post a question or comment on your Facebook page or timeline and you do not respond they will stop talking and decide if you are not interested then neither are they.
If you have all the social media sites set up and they are all silent all the time leaving you to wonder why you bothered or what the big deal is consider if you are actually using social media or if it is simply there as a decoration on your website.
Best Practices To Make Most of Social Media
  1. Respond to EVERY comment on Facebook. Even if it is just a ‘like’ or to say thank you or exchange a pleasantry do not be the person that walked by and looked the other way.
  2. In general it is better to leave a negative comment and respond appropriately than to delete it. It shows character and builds confidence of others reading.
  3. If you see a share of your post, product, or reference to your blog or product comment if you are able or send a one line thank you message to the person that shared it. This will encourage them to continue sharing and show others how interested in their opinions you are.
  4. Consider strongly when somebody pins something of yours on Pinterest or follows you on any of the media sites to do the same in return. Once again it encourages them to continue and makes them remember you look for you as opposed to overlooking your future shares and tweets.
  5. Set a schedule on a near daily basis to go through the social media profiles of your blog or blogs and respond to all as needed and if there is nothing to respond to then have something to add or say yourself. Do not be a salesperson all the time – simple comments on other things are perfectly acceptable but do not go silent for days and weeks on end.
  6. Remember that you can learn a lot from other people in similar fields as you. It is a big world; we are not all competing for the same market. Following, posting comments, and sharing with and from others in the same field is an opportunity to learn other best practice, receive peer recognition, make friends, and gain inspiration and insight for future projects and developments. If you see good posts do not be shy to share them even if similar to something you would place on your own blog.
If you follow the best practices and are social on social media sites interacting with people then instead of just walking by on a street you are stopping to talk to friends and they will genuinely remember you.

Guest Posting.

The good old element of Professional Blogging– Guest Posting is one thing you should really give some priority to. Don’t think you are wasting valuable content for your blog by giving away your knowledge to other blogs. Think positive and think beneficial. All those Pros won’t go like Mad Guest Posters without seeing anything beneficial. Right?

Why & How To Build a Powerful Online Presence?

Be Human.

I know some bloggers who are having great values of information but have not achieved success. Its only because that they don’t have a life other than their blog Dashboard and Revenue results. They are just acting like robots who can’t talk. You actually need to mingle with your readers. Talk to them back. Help them. It will also build a good readership and a strong online value.
