Why do blogs fail?

When you start a blog it’s easy to make mistakes. The important thing is to not get derailed by them, and to learn from the mistakes others have made before you so you don’t have to repeat them.

Blogs fail for a few reasons:

Unrealistic Expectations

This one is a double-edged sword because on one hand you need to have ambitious goals for what you’re trying to achieve.

On the other hand, it’s all too easy to get frustrated and ahead of ourselves when you don’t see the results as quickly as you want.

That’s why practicing is so important.

The best thing you can do for your new blog is to fail quickly and learn from your mistakes fast.

And you do that by publishing as often as you can.

It takes consistency and time and most people aren’t patient

Here’s a hard reality.

The 80/20 rule is in effect here with blogging as it is with virtually everything else.

20 percent of the bloggers are going to have 80 percent of the results.

The key is to model what the 20 percent are doing right and implement it for yourself.

Be patient, but work hard and continue to show up.

You aren’t taking your blog seriously

Dabbling isn’t going to get you anywhere.

The 80 percent who start a blog but really don’t get very far with it are the ones who are dabbling.

They’re not REALLY committed.

They’re not all-in on making their blog a success.

But the 20 percent who ARE successful are the people who take developing their craft very seriously and are committed.

So commit yourself to making things happen and the results will come.

You haven’t practiced enough

You have to produce prolific, and compelling content.

And to be able to do that it takes practice.

But practice only works if you learn from your mistakes and errors and improve them.

Here’s another hard reality.

Your first pieces of content are going to suck.

I know those aren’t the most encouraging words you want to hear from someone who’s trying to convince you that you need to start a blog.

But once you realize that you can move past it and get to practicing.

That’s why I’m so committed to the idea of publishing something every day.

And I practice what I preach. You can check my YouTube channel or my Facebook profile and see that I go live every weekday, and I’m regularly adding new posts here on my blog.

I’m everywhere I can be!

And I can tell you from my own experience that publishing every day works.

Because it’s practice focused on getting better every day.

So if you want to avoid failing at blogging commit to consistent publishing and practice as much as you can so you can get better.

You’re focused on monetization too soon

Putting money first gets you focused on the wrong thing.

There’s nothing wrong with earning money from your blog, but when that’s your first priority it’s going to be hard to be focused on creating the kinds of content you need to create for your audience.

Instead of letting money be the driving force behind your blog, instead let delivering real value be the driving force. The money will come as a natural byproduct when the time is right.
