Inherent Yet Invisible Challenges Of Running A Blog

worrycartoon-2 It is so easy to burn out by running your own blog.

You think going in that you’ll never run out of ideas to write about. We all run out of ideas sooner or later, talk about writers block, we all have it one way or the other.

And, even if you are supernatural and can continue coming up with new ideas for years and years, the demands of updating your blog with new content requires discipline that most of us just don’t possess.

Structurally most blog platforms are created for content uploading and sharing. That’s why they are known as the publishing platforms of common people. While its very much possible to monetize a blog that is filled with neat content, yet a deliberate plan for monetization is a must.

It’s the persuasive language, nice presentation and proper eye ball management that matter the most.

    Expectations Challenge: Most bloggers start out with great expectations and build their blog with all kinds of ideas and inspirations.

    In the short run everything seems go well for these bloggers, when other life commitments, priorities take precedence they soon find themselves drifted away and their blogs take a back seat…(Oops! when did I make my last post on this blog ..a month ago?)

    Lack or Limited Time Challenge: You have images to upload, content to format, comments to respond, plugins to configure, themes to edit and a variety of other tasks. Blogging needs a significant investment of your time.

    It could potentially leave you with no time for list-building, traffic generation or product development. Answer this in your mind, Are you an Internet Marketer or a Blogger?

    Traffic Challenge: Here’s a fact most people don’t tell you about: ‘getting traffic to you blog is not that different from getting traffic to any static site’.

    You have to spend a lot of time to get the traffic and then there are no guarantees that this traffic will ever translate into any money for you.

    You could be very happy seeing your RSS subscriber list grow( Many Bloggers fake their RSS Reader count to imply social proof), but in reality this means nothing if you are not making any money from it.

    A majority of these reader also subscribe to similar or identical blogs in your marketplace that are like yours. Factor in indifference, a lack of effort, poor results and a never ending amount of other enticing offers and you’ll be lucky to get them to keep coming back a few times to read your blog.
