Hey! Is that what I just said? Of course that’s what I said. I want to let you why your blog is actually going to fail this year and more years to come if…
If what? That’s the question I guess you intend asking me. Never mind, I’m obviously going to do justice to that. Before that, let me introduce myself to you as this is not your usual Harsh Agrawal you know. I’m one controversial blogger known as Cudjoe. Others call me Kabenlah, some also do call me Emmanuel but my lovely grandmother calls me Kabie. I’m sure you’ve already started mumbling and started getting bored already but please wait, before you begin to type in Facebook, in your address bar, I’m about to tell you why your blog is going to fail. So please wait.
Okay let me add this last intro, I blog at mycudjoe.com. Yes, that’s my blog! I look at the world through the eyes of others and of course through my eyes also.
Now, back to the main issue on board. So tell me, for how long have you being blogging? And how successful has your blog being? Remember I’ve never asked you how much work you put in your blog. That’s the point! Many bloggers want their blogs to succeed but actually lack the will to WORK much more harder on their blogs. Let me tell you this, it’s only in the dictionary that’s where success comes before work.
I don’t blame you for not working on your blog. Why? Because you’re always sabotaging yourself. You think your posts are not good enough. Yes, many bloggers have low self-esteem and always to find excuses as to why their posts are not good enough like that of Harsh or that of John Chow’s posts which we all agree they offer great posts. All these are seasoned bloggers who started out just like you. So please, working on your blog is indeed the surest to success and doing the opposite is of course, the surest way to failure.
Hey wait, WORKING has to do with writing posts and letting your readers determine whether its quality. Don’t compare yourself with other bloggers. You’re unique with your own way and style. Yes, you are!
Another truth has to do with consuming a lot of unnecessary stuffs online. I mean a lot information. Let me tell you this, the craziest place to be on earth is to be on the internet. Why? And the answer is simple, there are a lot of ‘useless’ information. Tell me again, how many of us won’t quit reading this post and follow a link I might maybe recommend of bringing in more than 1000 traffic to your blog a day? And obviously all of us will fall victims.
There are many social networks in the world more thousands of them. How can you therefore be active on all these networks at the same time in your quest to bringing traffic to your site? Just limit yourself to a few. The fact that a social network can bring traffic doesn’t guarantee that you ought to join. You’ve joined soo many social networks but are they really impacting on your blog? I’ve just currently limited myself to two and obviously the names Facebook and Twitter can’t be ruled out. The likes of Friendster, shetoldme, Artego, 2Tag, Tagged and several others can be on hold for now.
Doing the same thing each and every day and expecting a different result is simply insane. This was what I read on one taxi some days back. As to who said that, I don’t know. May be it was the taxi driver or the taxi owner. These are my last words.
Hey wait for the last time, don’t forget to subscribe to this blog as I’ll be gearing up, no, armoring up to submit my second guest post.
