3 Time-Wasting Habits That Make Most Bloggers Fail

There are more than 150 million blogs found on the Internet and most blogs have less than 1,000 monthly readers. This is what make most of these blogs unsuccessful and causing most bloggers to fail. Inevitable to say, I guess in this piece of information, there are people like you who is ….

  • a person that thinks writing out great articles will produce the desired sales required to build a profitable business,
  • a person that believes huge online presence on Google would award you with an infinite supplies of readers,
  • …… or a person who simply put in all the hard work and nothing turn out as expected.

If you fall into the last category, you must be asking “WHY”

Why Bloggers Fail?

While most bloggers produced insufficient readerships, there are a small fraction of bloggers who successfully expand their business. But why is the percentage of those who succeed consist of only such small fraction? The answers lie in:

The Psychology Factor

Most people who start blogging wish to drive high subscriber numbers. With that being said, who doesn’t want to make an impact to the virtual world and bring it down to the real world? And these are the people who willingly starts the venture and achieve success is all that they want.

So, what happens?

However, the real world is not easy. There is no such story of built and get your traffic anymore. Most bloggers quit doing that 3 months after not seeing any result.

But why?

Most start their blogs by doing the wrong stuffs!

Bloggers spend time on creating high quality content but CONTENT is definitely not the #1 factor to make you succeed online. You must be asking yourself “How am I going to succeed online then?

The first 3 months has proved worthless. Instead of showing the bright side of blogging, a bunch of social media logins, passwords, and the belief that ‘I`ll be ready to go by the time I complete this little one thing..’ is what left operating a blog.

To make things worse, there is insignificant readerships. This demotivates and therefore many quit before can see any success.

Complimentary do things without yielding positive results for a long period of time can be very demotivating.

And that is the reason, I suppose, most bloggers quit.

However, like I said, wanting to is not equivalent to reality; wasting time on pointless activities won’t give bloggers more traffics, more leads, and more sales. It doesn’t have to be that way even though this happens to most bloggers. So, here is a question for you:

  • Do you want to successfully blog?
  • Are you worried that the unwanted outcomes will happen again?
  • Are you worried spending time on pointless pursuit in finding the right way to blog will waste your preciously treasured time?
  • Or worse still, perhaps while you are reading this post, you are already half way building your blog but have been tiredly wasted your energy without a single fruit harvested?

If your answers to these is “yes”, you’re in luck.

I just put together a complimentary e-book on how to successfully blog from scratch and include all necessary resources used by top renown bloggers to help you succeed blogging. I am going to reveal “Beginner's Guide to Blogging Success” step-by-step so you can stop wasting unnecessary time doing the wrong thing. By following these 8-steps blogging principles, I believe the right results will be achieved soon.

To quickly let you learn how to do effectively and efficiently blog, here are 3 time-wasting habits you need to get rid of.

Time Wasting Habit #1: Produce Massive Content

I asked bloggers, ‘how do you allocate your time in doing blog?’ They replied me and said ‘generally, I spend about 90% of them on producing contents.’This makes NO sense to me!

Here’s the deal: producing more contents won’t gain you more readerships. The equation just don’t work this way.

Let’s say if you have 100 readers. The chances of these loving readers sharing your blog with their friends are very little. Perhaps only 1 to 2% of them will do that. The percentage is so low and with that rate, the possibility of getting loyal reader will be relatively low too. Going from 100 to 101 readers is not how you want to build your blog readerships. You want SIGNIFICANT impact right?

To create high impact readership, you have to go from 100 readers to 300 readers. Then, from 300 readers to 1,000 and so on. How do you do the twist?

The strategy is all about your skill to promote content you already have as the chances are, at least 10,000 other online readers in the world can benefit from your content. “You don’t have to toll day in and out to create content. You just have to bring the content you already have… on the screen of more people.”

Time Wasting Habit #2: Promote Content With A Common Strategy

There are many bloggers whom I spoke to promote their contents by sharing on Twitter, Facebook and many other existing social media networks. The strategy is “the more social media platforms you share with, the more traffic it will generate for your blog” and the more repeated sharing means more other readers will see the content. Some bloggers even sometimes ask their friends to share it on their personal social media platform, too.

After I continuously ask them the same question, this is when they gave up answering about “sharing” on social media platforms. And this round they continue with ….

“Well, I don’t know what else to do. So I write more content.”

Are you familiar with this phrase? If yes, then you should continue reading.

Sharing content to your social media platforms is NOT comprehensive enough for your blog, and solely implementing this common strategy can be time-wasting. You will never build successful blogs that fuel businesses solely by following this common strategy. You have to understand what a good strategy is, and how it works to benefit your readers. Here’s the fact about blogging….

The fastest way to increase readerships is to persuade another blog with high traffic to send readers your way.

It is just so simple.

But, how? This shall lead you to the NEXT big habit you should get rid of.

Time Wasting Habit #3: Build a “Me Too” Blog

You can build a blog that makes other bloggers crave for your content and willing to send their readers your way. However, the upsetting truth is, most blogs out there don’t warrant it. In fact, most blogs are what I consider “me too” blogs. They write the same thing as everyone else does and there is no uniqueness at all.

This is all about human psychology. People just do not want to read the same old stuffs over and over again. They crave for something new, special, unique and those they have never read before. Therefore, the time you spend on building a ‘me-too’ blog is really wasted.

The problem is, “How can you stand out among the 150 million blogs on the Internet?”

Here is the secret. You must be more specific with what your blogs aim at. For example, instead of writing about beauty, write beauty articles for female, aged 45 and above who want to defy aging. .

You might go on and think, “well, that surely will bring me relatively small audience.” Of course this is bound to happen, but nobody can stop you from expanding your niche. You just need to expand from there once you are ready!

It might seems difficult at first. But, if you compare “I am a beauty expert” or “I show people how to look young at age 45”, which of these is more memorable? The latter, for sure. And, the reality remains: if your blog often gets ignored you might want to find out whether you also have the “me too” blogging habit. Change it before it becomes too late.

Here’s what you need to do next…

Well, I have share with you 3 time wasting habits that make most bloggers fail and now it is time you decide on your goal and get some results fast. If continuously not seeing any result, you will definitely feel demotivate and quit. I am sure you wouldn’t want this to happen right?

Well, remember when I said:

The fastest way to increase readerships is to persuade another blog with high traffic to send readers your way.

Start now!!! But how?

First you have to decide what blogs you would like to send you traffics. To do this, list a dream website that you’d want to get link from. You can type this into the comment box below.
