This is a guest post by Febap Liew from Blogxic.com who is today telling us about measuring your true value in this blogosphere.
In terms of blogging and having your own internet business online, providing valuable information and content is inevitably very important when it comes to building your personal credibility and of course expanding the tracks of your blog and internet business exposure.
However, have you ever come to wonder how you are able to provide such content? How others could write life-changing articles that could possibly challenge the test of time? No it is not by running through endless books or informational sources to gather points, sum it all up and present it to readers.
Instead, I believe the amount of worth you deliver depends heavily on how you measure your personal self-worth and value.
Note that when I meant self-worth and value, I do not mean how much you are ‘financially’ amounted to but how significant are you when it comes in believing yourself and what you can ultimately achieve when you give out.
It is only true that blogging can at times seems like a very stressful activity to comply especially when we tend to compare ourselves with other bloggers out there with the similar niche.
You have a blog that started out within the same time as they do but you noticed them reaching far greater success as compared to yours. You begin to question yourself. You start to have doubts in your ability as well as capability of managing a blog.
“What is it that they are doing and I am not?”
“Why are they getting a heaps amount of subscribers and comments where else I am struggling even to achieve 10?”
“How are they even possible reached such an impressive rank whereby they started out within the same time as I do?”
Very often time, I believe many bloggers are inclined to be caught up in the ‘number game’ when it comes to blogging. Admit it, who doesn’t? Who won’t be prone of improving the numbers within their Google Analytics, Alexa, Site meter and comparatively other metric tools available?
More often, you are constantly checking on its readings and stats. All in all that you have come to believe that the better the number gets, the more convinced you are that you are eventually doing something right. As soon as you found out a discouraging “lump” on the scale, you quickly began to question about your self-ability, that you are most probably not doing ‘enough’, that you should put more effort in writing very highly packed keyword content based articles.
You work your nuts out, just so you could improve such numerical stats. You ‘abandoned’ the attempt of having to connect with the rest of your fellow bloggers.
“A dollar is not worth as much as you think it is. Your honesty is worth much more.”
– T. Boone Pickens
Therefore, maybe it is time for you to step-back and re-evaluate. Shouldn’t blogging be fun and rewarding at the same time? Shouldn’t blogging be an activity where you get to speak your mind, educate people based on your expertise and connect with the rest of the similar minds alike?
Therefore, how can you truly measure your “worth” and eventually the value of your blog?
By how you rank? By the numbers of subscribers you obtained? By the amount of comments you received?
No. It is the ability for you to immerse yourself in writing rich content and focus on writing what will be worth reading. A drive that will be able to articulate your voice and belief strongly across this platform – whether you are heard by 10 or 10,000 people. Numbers does not matter anymore as numbers will eventually be just numbers. They will without doubt not be able to associate your self-worth and value as a blogger and certainly not for your blog as well.
However, do not for a second think of even trashing the numbers. There are many benefits you can possibly obtain when it comes to determining your site’s performance and how to properly market them. What I am emphasizing is that you should never measure your worth against these numbers. Spend your time planning on meaningful words and contents instead of catching up with the numeric.
Ultimately, your true value as a blogger is based on consequential context that at the end of the day may change the way how people think. – 1 person or more. Does the number even matters? Let me know by commenting below.
