The most common thing people talk about is wanting to make a change or develop a huge project with lasting results that stick around. Let’s take a look at this idea through the lens of blogging.
With the obvious perks that come along with becoming a well-known blogger; business opportunities, income, fame, and positive revenue generating activities, it’s easy to see why you may desire this for yourself. You may want to create a blog that gets the perks of success: an active community, sales, sponsors, engagement, and becoming a thought leader.
Whether you have been blogging for a few years or are just starting out, nearly every blogger shares universal desires of making their blog “famous”!
The reality is: Everyone wants the distinction, but nobody wants to do the work.
This idea is the same for fitness.
“Everyone wants muscle, but nobody wants to train.” Anthony Robbins
If you want to succeed in blogging you need to do more than just try. Once you get that initial momentum the process is better than the result.
Most people dabble and if you find that you’re spending more time talking about your future blog than actually blogging it’s important that you keep reading.
You might be thinking “I don’t know what to do”, but I argue that even if you did you may not have enough passion and detail to follow through. To truly be successful at anything you must set a path and be consist.
Blogging Example: Setup a content calendar, set posting frequency and perform three promotional activities daily.
Measurement makes all the difference in whether or not you achieve your end goal. Also, make sure to define your idea of “fame” or success.
Track Measurement: Analytics
If you never look at the numbers you’ll never know where you are and what adjustments you need to make to maintain where you should be going.
Steps Summed Up
- Define your idea of “fame”
- Set a path and be consist
- Measure often
- Stop trying and commit
Hold yourself to a standard. Measure your progress and use a path to guide you. Growing your blog isn’t possible over night and it will take time for people to find your work. But if you’re serious and you really want to improve your blog – you as a person will need to get better.
Remember, becoming a “famous blogger” requires commitment and passion, but old fashioned hard work always pays off.
Some takeaways: You need to become a great writer, learn to create wonderful pictures, consistently post and develop a knack for promoting your content and meeting people.
You must give up “trying something” – commit to absolute.
