5 THOUGHTS ON SUCCESSFUL BLOGGING

Oct 12 2014



Success is not a universal thing, you define what success is for yourself. Some may define success of a blog by numbers, some may define it by the quality of its content, some may define it by a blog’s engagement with readers and so on. Success according to one might not be success for another. Despite these differences in the definitions of success, here are a few common things that may help you reach success, whatever it may mean to you.

Be driven by passion: Blog because you love to blog, not for fame, name or money. To find out your passion, ask yourself this one question – ‘What would you like to do for the rest of your life if you had unlimited money, you were famous and had everything you wanted in life?‘ The answer to that question is simply something that you have the fire of passion for. Everything else will come in eventually.
Work hard and enjoy it: You have to work hard, and there is no way around it. But you know what makes it easy to work hard? Enjoying the process. Have fun writing, have fun taking photographs, have fun researching on topics, whatever you may be doing, have fun! Hell, yea!
Be better than yesterday: No matter where you are at present with your skills in writing, photography or anything, make it a point to improve one small thing every day. Be open to learning, keep 10 minutes of your day to learn about something new to make your blog better. These small improvements will add up and create magic someday.
Believe in your ideas and focus: Have a unique idea, but afraid to work on it because no one else has done something similar before?Β Kill that fear. You are you, you are unique. If YOU don’t believe and work on your ideas, who else will? And why be afraid, it may become THE next big thing and if not, what are you losing anyway? Focus your efforts on your ideas, its worth it.
Go on, Anyway: Its okay to make mistakes, its okay to fail but what’s not okay is to give up. Give up, never. You have to persist through CRAP – infamously elaborated asΒ Criticism, Rejection, A**holes, PressureΒ and push yourself. Everyday.
These are my thoughts about being successful not only in blogging, but actually anything that you may want to do. Create, Inspire and be happy is my small little mantra of life πŸ™‚
What are your thoughts about success? Have a lovely week ahead!

  • Seeing improvement is the biggest "success" I have seen come out of my blog so far. From pictures to content I really do feel I've come a long way.

  • Thank you for this. I'm only just starting out on beauty blogging (11 weeks in!), and I'm finding out about C.R.A.P. a lot already. I think that you're right – I just need to keep believing in why I'm blogging and what I want from it.

  • Work hard and enjoy it is really important! If you don't like what you do, it's going to be more difficult for you to maintain your blog and post good content!

  • Haha these are some great tips. I definitely love the “Be better than yesterday,” one. If we work on our skill each and everyday, then a year from now, it’ll be so fun/surreal to think back about all the stuff that we have learned and taught ourselves throughout that year, just by setting 10 minutes or more aside a day! (Hopefully it’s more. I, personally, can get lost in blogging and coming up with new ideas πŸ˜‰
