There are was time, a few years ago actually when no one knew the meaning of blogging. In fact, there was no word existing like ‘blogging’ but now as the Internet started growing up, one word also rose with it termed as ‘blogging‘ and till today’s time, its impact is so wild that this ‘blogging’ even created a sphere which is known as ‘blogosphere‘ and now everyone knows about blogging.
The blogging arena is growing rapidly. Some people opt it as a hobby, some people love it, and some people prefer it as a business. Yes, it’s true that one can start an online business via blogging and make some bucks. Everyone wants some money out of their hard work as we love fruits for our hard deeds. Well… Well… the problem arises when you think that blogging would make you rich instantly.
Now, this is the misunderstanding I face with most of the newbie bloggers as they ask me several times that ‘How can I get rich with Blogging’, well it’s a silly question until & unless they are about some several ethics they need to know and I would be sharing in this post.
Well, blogging has a long way to go to make you rich and there are several things you need to understand to go smoothly on your way. If you too have the desire to make money blogging and want an answer to the title of this post, then these are my responses.
Blogging isn’t a Quick Rich Scheme
This is the perfect rule every blogger should know about blogging and even I believe that people think blogging is all about making money. Actually blogging was all meant to share information online to help people. But as the Internet grew, it brought some make money opportunities for bloggers. But these make money opportunities were made to help bloggers get fruits for their efforts, not blogging with the sole aim of making money. And this is where a majority of people fail to understand for what blogging is really meant for. So, blogging is not just made to bring you huge money online, money shouldn’t be your sole aim, you sole aim should be delivering helpful content to your readers.
Traffic doesn’t jumps from the sky
’Quality and recurring audience is the secret of any successful blog’
This is a thought that I have learnt since I have been blogging. You can make few bucks from your blog only if you obtain some loyal readers. The monetization part cannot be done instantly when you come up with a all new blog. To build loyal audience, it takes time and proper implementation of strategies like Content Marketing, Proper SEO, Keyword Research, etc. ad these all things cannot be done instantly. It takes time. Now I said Content Marketing, Keyword Research and SEO but I see most bloggers following a wrong way i.e. creating a blog and directly starting promoting it, looking for monetization part and applying for advertising networks and other foolish acts. Now, I already said that it would be a foolish act as ‘Blogging isn’t a quick rich Scheme‘.
Patience will help you go a long way
See, getting reach isn’t easy especially when you’re blogging. Now do you know an old proverb – Slow and Steady wins the race’, and the same applies if you are doing blogging business. You might be knowing some pro bloggers who make good amount of income from blogging and earn a healthy livelihood. For example, Darren Browse took 8 years to reach where he is today as he established Pro Blogger is 2004. Of course, he was patient to become that respectful he is today and patience is worth it. See, blogging isn’t a export business where you need to sell and earn your profit. It is a business which sown with effort, germinated with talent and grown with burst. Overall, it take lot of time to earn a handy amount of income and requires patience too.
