Are You Devoted To Blogging?

Question Mark

Nancy had been blogging for two years on WordPress; she did it sporadically; she would publish blog posts whenever she felt inspired (And, that was rare).

“Am I wasting my time blogging?” she wondered.

Nancy could not understand the reason why she only had fifteen followers, no comments and a few “Likes”. She felt the urge to talk with someone — someone who knew a whole lot about blogging. She took out her laptop computer with the intentions of finding out if her friend, Wendy, was logged in to her Skype account.” Great! Wendy is online!” she exclaimed and clicked on the camera icon; she kept her fingers crossed hoping that the quality of the video call on Skype would be an excellent one.

“Good day to you, Nancy,” Wendy uttered politely. “I like what you did with your hair.”

“Thank you,” Nancy replied. “I was tired of my hair touching my shoulders, so I cut it a bit shorter,” she paused for a brief moment and said, “By the way, are you seeing me and hearing me clearly?”

“Yes, I am,” was Wendy’s response.

“Wendy, I need your help on something,” Nancy said sounding a bit worried.

“Sure, Nancy,” Wendy replied. “What is it that you need help with?”

“I need help with my blog,” Nancy answered. “I want to know the reason why people are not reading my blog posts.”

“If it makes you feel any better, I do read your blog posts,” Wendy uttered.

“Oh, I know that you do and that makes you the perfect candidate to let me know how to go about solving this dilemma,” was Nancy’s reply.

“I have noticed that you are not consistent with your blogging,” Wendy said in a frank tone of voice. “In September, you posted three blog posts, you did not post anything for the month of October, November, you posted two blog posts and in December, you only posted one blog post.”

Nancy sighed aloud and said, “You have made a very good point, Wendy. And, that is all because I have not been inspired lately.”

Wendy urged her friend, Nancy, to have a look at her blog. “Have you noticed a pattern?”

“Yes, I have noticed a pattern,” Nancy said. “You publish your blog posts on the same day and time.”

“Good!” Wendy responded. “That is a perfect example of consistency!”

“Okay, from now on, I will do my best to be consistent in blogging,” Nancy said halfheartedly.

“Nancy, I want you to always remember, that if you do not take your blog seriously, no one will,” Wendy uttered.

“Thank you for the blogging advice,” Nancy replied. “I will put it into practice from now on.”

Wendy’s toddler started crying in the background. “Josh is awake, I have got to go. Sorry about that, Nancy.” Wendy said.

“No problem at all,” Nancy replied.” You need to carry out your motherly duties.”

“I will share more blogging tips with you on our next chat. Goodbye, Nancy.” Wendy said before ending the video call on Skype.

10 Things That Bloggers Should Consider

business-computer-desk

To put in bluntly, blogging is not rocket science (Even though there are people who would like you to believe that it is).

I will admit, that no one really masters the art of blogging the first time around since it is something that people gradually learn and get better at as time passes.

As a matter of fact, anyone can get better at blogging (Provided that they have a genuine desire to advance themselves in the area of blogging and that they are willing to put the things that will greatly enhance their blog into practice).

The biggest irony is that these things are simple — things that bloggers rarely take into consideration.

At this point, I have certainly aroused your curiosity and I am going to delve deeply into those things that bloggers rarely take into consideration; so without further ado, it is time to let you know what they are.

Finding The Time To Blog In December

Gifts

We all know that the month of December is one of the busiest months of the year (And, that could lead to some bloggers neglecting their beloved blogs).

Have you been neglecting your blog for the month of December?

If you have answered, “Yes,” you are not alone.

Unfortunately, a large percentage of personal bloggers tend to neglect their blogs for the month of December.

On the other hand, professional bloggers (those people with business-related blogs) make it a priority of theirs to blog in the month of December because blogging is their livelihood.

For the record, there is nothing wrong with taking a hiatus in the month in December (Just let your viewing audience know in advance, that you would be taking the month of December off).

Anyway, I want personal bloggers to know that it is possible for them to publish blog posts in the month of December (I will let them know how to make that sort of thing a reality).
