Our distinguished pro bloggers encourage all the newbie bloggers to do lot of hard work to become successful. They very generously guide the new entrants of this field and share with them every secret to earn money as much as they can. Obviously their sincerity is above board. But simultaneously they remain so kind enough and avoid becoming straight forward. Here also their purpose is not to discourage the beginners. They don’t want their words make anyone lose his hear and quit blogging.
This does not apply to all pro bloggers. Many of them very tactfully convey the harsh realities related to the blogging struggle. I am talking about oft-spoken bitter realities like blogging needs time, hard work, networking, patience and blah blah. They very rarely write on who should not do blogging. Actually they want more and more people try their luck in this field because one who do hard work with proper planning will never fail. But there are certain basic requirements which you must have in your nature if you want to shine as a star in blogosphere. Here are these;
When Blogging is not meant for you:
If you are not even a little creative
If you don’t have modicum of creativity you should never do blogging. If we cast a look over the entire knowledge of blogging it is not unlimited. There are a few tips and tricks about its techniques and a few more about its concepts and that’s all. The art is to present them in a new way. For that obviously creativity is must. The lines which I am writing here have already been written hundreds of times by expert bloggers in their one post or separately in different compositions. Here I am giving to the same idea a new look by putting this information with a new angle. So you must have a minimum possible creativity to give your readers old wine in a new bottle.
If you are not even slightly technical
You can hire a techie to develop your blog. You can ask your friend to help you out in technical matters but your reliance on others would not let you think out of box for design and layout of your blog. You would think but the next moment you would stop thinking further just to avoid unnecessary expense in development or designing. Or you would avoid bothering your friend who you just have bothered in another technical issue.
So it is necessary that you must have a little technical knowledge about blog design and layout. In the control panel of your blog all you cannot do by one click because there are several options you have to do with the help of basic knowledge of the HTML and CSS. If you are not technical by nature, blogging is not your cup of tea.
If you are not a learner by nature
If learning is not your passion you should never do blogging because it is the constant process of learning and then sharing your knowledge with your readers. You can hire a writer but you have to keep a check over his contents and for that too you need to be a learner first. Otherwise you will not be able to strictly examine the contents which you have to upload on your blog.
Blogging is not the end of this world
This should be your spirit of struggle if you are not fully fit for the above three prerequisites of blogging. Keep it in your mind it has been two decades since blogging has been started. The known history of this world is about three thousand years. During this period we have thousands and thousands of people who are the second name of success. They were not bloggers. They were the experts of their filed. So I am sorry to be blunt but facts are facts. If you don’t fulfill the above three blogging requirements don’t worry another field is eagerly waiting for you to be proud of you. The need is to explore that field and if you can assess your inner abilities you can find it very easily.
Well, I don’t meant to discourage you, but this is harsh reality of Blogging. It’s not an easy task, and if you are starting a blog to make money, there are many other ways to earn from home. You just need to pick, which suits your skill set.
So, is blogging for you or not?
