Dare Not Commit The Bloggers Sins
You definitely do commit them, seldom knowing that these are what they call “mistakes”. I can’t glib of the fact that bloggers have their share of mistakes.
It was a simple query, pounced on me by one of my readers, one that took me writes a blog to explain how the hell mistake and a sin stand miles apart.
Mistakes are an unknowing encounter to a monster that can actually be tamed and one’s moral obligation for these mistakes that bloggers often commit is what I term is a sin.
Bloggers don’t commit mistakes they commit sins. Sins that they pay for in terms of their audiences.
Here’s a list of all suicidal attempts bloggers commit.
1. Lacking Perseverance:
Isn’t that a child’s play?
One can surely make such irresponsible statements if one has no idea what blogging is and what it takes to for a blogger to disgorge his mind and soul to make out a blog.
No one guarantees audiences till you are one of the big fish in the bloggers world.
Many have and many will slip into the dark abyss of obscurity.
Hundred strokes on a trunk of wood and it is sliced into to pieces, people think it’s the 100th stroke that had it into parts but without the 99 earlier strokes it would not have just been possible.
There are stages of blogging ups and downs that no blogger can escape; this shapes your ability to deliver.
Keep sailing through tough waters with perseverance, you will reach the shores of success.
2. Missing the art:
Might this be a problem, lacking the art to make them indulged.
Let me make it simple:
- You don’t serve on the topics that your audiences are interested to munch on.
- Interaction is what you don’t suppose to do in your blogs.
- The spice of uniqueness is low; rather you don’t spice it well.
3. Futzing :
I can never think of a person more lackadaisical in attitude than me.
Yes I admit it that I am the laziest creature on the planet, but I am blogger. So if I can blog you too can.
Novice bloggers keep complaining about the time it consumes and effort it takes, and what about bonded labor who works his art with bricks and sand all round the clock, just give that a thought.
It’s your laziness and slothful attitude makes blogging difficult. I guess you would stop complaining now.
4. A wane ersatz:
One may inspire you and there is absolutely nothing wrong with it.
The books on building right attitude, improving self image and achieving goals are more of inspirational gossip.
Inspiration has become a good business rather a respectful substitute for copy.
This is what bloggers should try and escape, taking inspiration is no wrong but trying to be a wane copy of the original is never a good idea.
Let your inspiration act as a guiding light, a ray of hope but carve out a niche for yourself, one that you are comfortable in, where you find a audience to applaud you and one where you become inspiration for others.
5. You don’t make sense:
I could very well hunch that all bloggers don’t make it for one simple reason-“They don’t make sense”.
Audiences would read you if you make a laconic post, venerated enough.
I can’t really expect a blogger to just write gimcrack stuff that makes no sense but to my surprise there are many.
A blogger owes a responsibility to his readers and can’t serve them with half baked ideas.
Chalking out strategies that would attract your audiences is fine enough but before that the million dollar question that haunts you is “content”.
6. Letting it go:
Your first blog is published and you are a star blogger. There is a craze all over the social media to read your stuff.
Wake up. Hello……. Are you out from your sweet little dream?
Even “Seth Godin”, Zig Zaglar the most famous of bloggers haven’t had it so easy.
But they made it to where they are only because they stood strong and determined when it seemed easy to let go- “quit”
Bloggers don’t give it what it takes, hard work and determination.
They want quick success but remember the lift for success is out of order and you can just take stairs step by step.
Sins are simple tricks bloggers can dig their own graves. Commit mistakes and conquer them. Commit sins and it’s all over.
Finally it’s time for my flavor to your recipe:
“You are rich enough to pay the price for success but you can’t effort the price for failure”.
