Is Blogging Easy?

This Is How You Make Blogging Easy

Truthfully, it all depends on whom you ask.

Blogging might be viewed as difficult by someone who is just starting out.

Whereas, it is a proverbial walk in the park for the blogger who has been blogging for quite a long time.

Whether bloggers choose to accept this fact or not, it is their job to make blogging easier for themselves.

You Will Have To Figure Out A Lot In The Beginning

Now, before you can begin to write anything, you will have to learn the technical aspects; for example, learning your way around your dashboard and figuring out the various features of your blog’s editor.

Now, do not get me started on the Block Editor; there are people who can find their way around it easily and there are those who find it difficult to use.

As a former beta tester of the Block Editor, I can gladly say, “It is much easier to use now.”

When that technological monstrousity was first introduced, it was buggy as hell (Truthfully, that is expected of most technologies when they are in their beta testing stages).

Anyway, you get the idea.

Lots of learning is required in the beginning.

You Might Not Know What The Hell Tags Are

First of all, in order to use tags, you have to be aware of what they are.

To put it as simply as possible, a tag is one or more words that are used to describe what the blog post is about.

If you use no tags at all with your blog post, it is not going to show up in the WordPress Reader (And, that would make it difficult to get your blog post viewed by the members of the WordPress community).

To find out more about using tags on WordPress, I recommend reading, Tags in the Reader by the WordPress.com Support Team.

You Will Have To Fill Your Blog With Content

You might be able to write a blog post once or twice, but after sometime, you might find yourself running out of ideas (In all honesty, I am always filled to the brim with ideas for blog posts, but, unfortunately, there are those who face writer’s block).

The God’s/Goddess’s truth is that in order for your blog to remain active, you will need to fill it with new content on a regular basis (And, that can be challenging for some people).

If you are one of those people who experience writer’s block a lot, my blog post, 10 Ways To Come Up With Topics For Your Blog, will help you to overcome it.

You Will Need To Figure Out What Is The Most Appropriate Posting Schedule For You

You should know by now that not everyone can keep up with posting content on their blog daily.

There are those who will need to post less often (That, of course, is to prevent burnout).

To help you figure out which posting schedule is right for you, you should have a look at, Have You Found Your Publishing Sweet Spot?

The wise approach, of course, is to choose a realistic blogging schedule ― one that is very easy for you to maintain.

You Will Need To Be Good At Time Management

There are people who have stated that they do not have time time to blog; those are the ones who:

  • Work at two jobs.
  • Are attending college.
  • Are busy socializing with their friends.

Now, I do not want to come across as being harsh or uncaring, but the truth is that in order for you to get your quota of blogging done, you will have to make the time for it.

You Will Need To Remain Healthy

What does remaining healthy have to do with blogging?

A lot, my friend.

Blogging can be difficult for you when you are sick with the flu.

Therefore, you will have to do your best to keep your immune system healthy.

Anyone who has a sincere interest in keeping their immune system healthy should read, Six Tips to Enhance Immunity by the folks over at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Final Thoughts

There is more to blogging than meets the eye.

In addition to writing, you will have to become adept in many of the things that go on behind the scenes; once you familiarize yourself with those things, blogging will become much easier for you.

Thank you for reading!

  1. Yes Renard you are certainly right about this. As for me Blogging is easy to do, I am even deciding to publish daily now but it will depend on the availability of data. Today I made my mind to write 2 blogs and publish them on the same day.

    To new bloggers I suggest that they first know WordPress.com in and out, there is a tutorial on YouTube they can watch so that they learn how to add content, add images and plugins through their dashboard that has themes they can opt for and even know how to select a domain name -URL(https;//etc….)

    Thanks for the blog Renard it has motivated me to see blogging as a beautiful endeavor not a big challenge

  2. Blogging certainly started off rocky for me but I had no idea what I was doing.. It’s a lot less stressful once you’ve had some time doing it and it’s less daunting when you realize there’s this entire community of amazing people willing to help you succeed.
    Thanks for sharing, Renard!

  3. Great advice on finding tags in the reader! Unfortunately when I search for content on WP only posts on my own language (German) are found not those in English. So when I set english tags, like f.ex. hiking, english writing bloggers cannot find my post. True?

  4. Certainly figuring out the “technical or practical” components of blogging can be a challenge and take some time and effort for sure. But, blogging can be in many ways, as easy or challenging as the blogger wants or makes it to be. I really think it depends on the goals or aspirations of the person.

    If the goal is to be or create a blog the can be monetized then that approach would seem to be exceedingly challenging in terms of niche, content, visibility and a whole host of issues. You would need to be “on your game” all the time.

    On the other hand if the purpose is simply to have a bit of fun and approach it more as hobby – then perhaps the process if much easier.

    A simple question, but maybe the answers are far more complex than they seem?

  5. Thanks, Renard, for another great post. Blogging is demanding and is a steep learning curve. I am still learning as I go along. I admit I have made some very big mistakes on the way but that is what the journey is all about. One stumbles, one picks oneself up and one moves on. The advice and insights you share in your posts are extremely useful; and, have helped me understand more clearly the nature of the ‘beast’ one is dealing with and how to avoid many of the pitfalls. Thanks My Friend.

  6. Great post, Renard. I agree with Goff plus we all have different abilities. Things like the technical side come easy for some but not everyone. I think the more one blogs, the easier it becomes.

  7. Writing high-quality content with appropriate references is the most time consuming aspect of blogging in my opinion. However, it’s well worth it in the long run. Also, blogging can be enjoyable if you have the right minds tate. Thanks for the share!

  8. I think of it as playing soccer: it isn’t easy, but it’s not impossible either (look, Saudi Arabia beat Argentina – a disgrace!), and anything that seems too difficult shouldn’t be attempted. Blogging should be enjoyable, first and foremost.
