5 Ways To Motivate Yourself In Blogging

Motivation is one of the biggest factors for a blogger. With initial hiccups, many bloggers tend to back off from blogging and this way a good blogger says good bye to the blogosphere.

This is an obvious thing because blogging needs lot of patience from your side in the initial days and those who do not have a passion can easily succumb to the pressure.

But the point here is how you can keep yourself motivated in this cut throat competition.

blogging tips for motivating

Every day a new blog is created that promises to be better than the existing ones. Every month, you read the income report of a successful blogger and feels that you have not earned a single dollar. You see your competitor’s traffic increasing exponentially. So, how do you motivate yourself with no one around to say few sweet words? Try the following methods:

Tell Your Family About Your Goals

Family can be the biggest motivator if you tell them exactly what you are doing. Tell your parents, brother, sister, anyone so that he or she can keep you motivated about your goals and objectives.

Visit Other Blogs

I personally use this tactic to motivate myself. Reading other blogs and the success stories of bloggers around the world is the biggest source of inspiration for me. This is one reason first thing I read on a blog is it’s about page. I want to know what this blogger do and if he can, then why cannot I?

Positive Results

This is the most effective motivation factor for those who are having a good successful blog. These results can be good traffic, some encouraging comments and good money. Among these three, the best is the money you can get from blogging. But even if you are not getting money, seek inspiration from the comments and the traffic of your blog.

A Desire To Do Something Different

This is much related to my case. No one in my family and friend circle has ever started a blog and does not even know that blogging can get me good money and popularity. If I start getting something out of my blog, this will surely be helping my cause.

Change Your Outlook

All the above mentioned things will work only if you change your outlook. Open your minds and start taking things differently. In this regard, you can read my post on HIGH VISITS is not equal to HIGH POPULARITY. Here I have explained how bounce rate can be a good reason for motivation. Start finding excitement in little things, in comments and in traffic and you will be a good blogger.

I have always found myself easy to motivate in spite of no help from my friends and families. What is your style of motivating yourself ? Do you find yourself hard to motivate.

Reading other peoples success stories is one that definitely motivates me and always encourages me to stick with it.

Also comparing traffic stats with previous months and brainstorming new ideas is another one that helps me keep motivation.

I’ve read most of the comments, and surprisingly it looks like I’m the odd man out this time.

I think of you surveyed a good amount of folks, #1 family would be a big fat NO, especially if they are from a completely different generation, like mine.

I’ve totally given up trying to explain things, and gratefully so. lol

My family is not a good motivator in blogging, well they motivate me in different things but not blogging. I agree with visiting other blogs because if they can do it, I can do it too (hope so!) I think that high visits is good even the bounce rate is high, those visitors can be converted into clicks when using adsense. Just be creative.

A lot of bloggers do feel demotivated from time to time. There are times that they do question themselves, their abilities, and what they’re doing. I would say going back to the basics can help. When things get rough and complex, people usually start to lose motivation. And going back to the basics and the fundamentals always seem to help many.
