6 Things That I Wish For Newbie Bloggers

6-things-that-i-wish-for-newbie-bloggers

More and more people are joining WordPress on a daily basis. However, the sad fact is that only a small percentage of them will remain active in the blogosphere (A lot of the people who started blogging on WordPress will abandon their blogs due to some form of difficulty or dissatisfaction).

The truth is that everyone’s blogging journey is tough and that there is more to blogging than meets the eye.

I genuinely wish all the best to all of the new bloggers that joined WordPress recently.

And, speaking of wishes, I am going to share some of the things that I wish for all newbie bloggers around the world.

1.) I Wish That They Would Have Lots Of Fun With Their Blog

A newbie blogger will most likely stick with their blog if they are having fun and they can do that by:

  • Publishing the types of blog posts that they truly love.
  • Having a genuine interest in learning all they can about blogging.
  • Experimenting with writing styles and themes.
  • Creating their own images for their blog.
  • Being willing to interact with their fellow bloggers via their blog’s commenting section.
  • Participating in prompts.

Those are merely some of the things that newbie bloggers can do to have fun with their blogs.

Are you having fun with your blog?

2.) I Wish That They Would Not Worry So Much About What Other People Think Of Their Blog Posts

Truthfully speaking, no one is really good at writing blog posts the first time around (It is a skill that one gradually learns).

Experienced bloggers usually cringe when they reminisce about the first time that they ever published a blog post (It is one of those memories that they would like to forget).

So, do not be too hard on yourself if you are just starting.

Also, no one expects you to be perfect.

Therefore, continue to do your best in the areas of creating and publishing blog posts.

In all honesty, some people will criticize:

  • The things that you blog about.
  • Your writing style.
  • The quality of your photos.

The God’s/Goddess’s truth is that it is impossible to please everyone.

And, on a positive note, there would be those people who will appreciate reading your blog posts.

So, instead of worrying about what other people think about your blog posts, have fun with the content creation process and know to yourself that you will get better at it as time goes along.

Dear friend, if you worry about what other people think about your blog posts, you will end up publishing nothing on your blog (And, that would be a very bad thing).

3.) I Wish That They Would Always Have Something To Blog About

Coming up with new topics can be quite daunting for newbie bloggers.

Believe it or not, coming up with topics for your blog is easy; my article, 10 Ways To Come Up With Topics For Your Blog, will prove my point.

So, from now on, you will always have something to blog about.

Today, you can gladly say, “Goodbye,” to the monster that is known as “Writer’s Block.”

4.) I Wish That They Would Have Great Health

It is no secret that your health is important.

Some wise person once said, “Your health is your wealth!”

One must never forget that bloggers are actually human beings and they require:

  • An adequate amount of sleep.
  • Regular physical exercise.
  • A proper diet.

If you do not take good care of yourself, your health will suffer.

By the way, your blog will also suffer because it is heavily reliant on you for it to be active in the blogosphere.

Have you been making a conscientious effort to remain healthy?

5.) I Wish That They Would Not Be Too Concerned About Their Stats

When I first started blogging, I used to look at my stats multiple times a day (I eventually learned that it made no sense in doing that).

As a newcomer to blogging, it is quite natural for you for wanting to find out if your blog posts are being read by others.

The truth is that new blogs do not gather much attention; thus acquiring a small number of incoming views.

You probably thought to yourself, “I am wasting too much of my time and effort in creating blog posts for them to end up being ignored.”

Dear friend, I want you to concentrate on having fun with the whole content creation process instead of focusing your energy on your stats.

Why?

Because a small number of incoming views to your blog can make you feel somewhat disempowered (And, that can cause you to think that blogging is not for you).

It is a well-known fact that blogs tend to acquire more incoming views as they age; which is the reason why the person who has been blogging for the period of one year now has more incoming views to their blog than their first month of blogging.

Therefore, it makes a lot of sense, that newbie bloggers should not be too concerned with their stats.

6.) I Wish That They Would Never Think Of Comparing Their Blog To Others

Newbie bloggers should never fall into the trap of comparing their own blogs to the blogs of others.

Why?

Because they risk feeling that they are not good enough.

From a factual point of view, there are bloggers who are more skilled than others.

Realistically, we cannot expect everyone’s level of blogging to be the same.

So, be proud of what level you have reached at blogging.

The most important thing is that you possessed the courage to start a blog of your own.

Remember, the more you blog, is the better you get at blogging.

There is really no need for you to compare your blog to others.

Wrapping Up

I wish that all of the newbie bloggers will eventually have all of the things that I wished for them (I truly want them to have it).

Is there anything that you wish for newbie bloggers to have?

Please feel free to tell me all about it via my blog’s commenting section.

And, thank you for reading!

  1. I was just browsing blogs and found this.
    I *am* new, no substantial content yet. I worry my tendency to abandon projects, in addition to feeling unheard will result in failure. I have hope that with patience I can do well; it’s self-doubt or creative drain that may get me.

    And I can’t quite tweak design elements as I would like.
    ie: my home page requires a title, and it gets displayed at the top of that page, with no option to change the text color or (most frustratingly to me) the format – only allowing it to be Left-aligned. The rest of the content is centered.

    I *had* tried to dance around it by deleting the title and making the Header a more editable text-block… but the menu nav shows the page as “page #18” or something equally awkward. So I returned to the sub-optimal title option.

    This was a nice post to spool through. Thanks for making it. 👍🏻

  2. Hey. Your blogs have really helped me to actually make a decision to start one. You’ve really motivated me to keep it doing no matter what, to have fun and not worrying about stats. Thank you so much! Keep sharing and it really helps. Take care :))

  3. I need to say that your post was literally found by some miracle. I used to blog and had a following, but stopped because of this pressure I had. Hoping to be Freshly-pressed, hoping to have the perfect posts, hoping not to disappoint my readers, hoping to get more views. It was exhausting. The points you made were such important reminders. I am coming back after something like a 10 year hiatus. This time I need to remember your wishes. I can barely navigate through WordPress as it has changed so much and my memory must not be behaving. So to find other’s sites was a huge chore and yours popped up. I am thrilled. One point I never tried is creating my own images. I would love to hear some tips of what that means. Thank you so much. I will need to reread this post or sing it in chant form until it gets into my head. Ignore the outside, just enjoy the inside.

    1. 🙂 I am pleased to know that you were genuinely inspired by my blog post.

      In regards to creating your own images for your blog, you can use Canva (I suggest finding a tutorial about using Canva on YouTube).

      Yes, WordPress has changed a lot over the years. The dashboard is different and the WordPress Editor is different; it is called, “The Block Editor.”

      It is nice to have you back after ten years and I do hope that you stick around longer on WordPress this time around.
