Why everyone blogs and why you too should?

Bookmark and Share

I have been in bogging for a long time now. In 2007, I wrote a post Why Everyone Blogs and Why You Too Should? I asked readers and fellow bloggers to list their reasons to blog. Some 85 people answered and gave their reasons as to why they blog?

I often go back to the post to find out if those bloggers are still blogging. Sadly there are very few who are still blogging. Rest has faded away.

It is so easy to get lost in excuses when your desire to blog and it is only natural. May be we are programmed not to pursue goals even if we truly believe and we want it. The reasons may be any: fear of failure, other more pressing priorities in life, not enough time. That is why in life you may find usual circle - start something then give up, or you start then stop then start again. Many of us go through this exercise at some poi of time in life. This life cycle is truer in case of blogging. Several studies indicate that most blogs are abandoned soon after creation (with 60% to 80% abandoned within one month, depending on whose figures you choose to believe) and that few are regularly updated.

Eve shorter is the life span of bloggers who start a blog for goal of making  money through blogging in hurry. Too soon, they find that it is one of the difficult tasks and abandon their effort. That is why I suggest that have a solid reason to start a blog, research your subject and plan what you want to contribute Making money is even harder than most of us think.

Blogging should be an informed decision. If you don’t have a thorough plan in place then don’t start.

As I read this post I couldn't resist leaving a comment. My blogging journey was never planned and though I wrote here and there none were in public until accidently my first article was published on Light Within with overwhelming comments which was strength to keep writing and for a short period I became a guest writer and slowly the thirst to write and make public became a dream and I was blessed to have a dear friend to help me to have my own blog and today after nearly 11/2 years of ,I'm successful in what I write and almost famous with my own identity......Today my blog is my love and passion and have many reasons to keep my blog alive as long as I can write.....
