7 Unnecessary Excuses that Successful Bloggers Never Make

Do you aspire to be one of the successful bloggers in the blogosphere?

Yeah, I got you right; you want to be one of them. It has been your dream from day one when you started blogging.

On one same ordinary morning, when you wake up and checked the stats, guess what happened?

Your analytics is overflowing with traffic, you are getting tons of subscribers, your conversions are going sky high, and you’re being interviewed on other popular blogs. But in reality….

Bloggers Dream
  • Save

It was only a dream, you wished it from a long time and youโ€™re still dreaming about it. But the problem is, you are just dreaming it, not doing anything for it and waiting for the perfect blogging circumstances to come.

It’s hard to believe but there are no perfect circumstances, you can’t wait for all the lights to be green to drive your car away. Same as the case you can’t wait until you’ve loads of ideas, enough time for blogging, guaranteed traffic etc

The difference between you and your favorite successful bloggers is that they never give unnecessary excuses for not blogging.

Let us see the things that clutch you back and on the other hand which make them unstoppable.

Excuses that are stopping you to achieve success in blogging

1. My Niche is Already over Populated

Crowded Blogging niche
  • Save

Bloggers often consider it a very serious reason for quitting, even before actually starting it. They think that their niche is already overpopulated and their competitors are far better than them.

So what if it is overpopulated?

Let us consider that you are going to start a blog on Self Development niche and when you googled it down, you analyzed that people are blogging on this very niche from the past many years and is already flooding with huge competition.

So what you will do? Will you drop that idea or you stick to it?

Just think about it, if more and more people are coming with the same niche that means that lots of people want to read about that particular niche.

And they are expecting more quality information, eventually, that means they are raving for more content.

So consider them as your readers and write for them, feed them with your personal spin on it even if that has been covered. Read is the technology niche no longer a good niche?

2. I will choose a Unique Niche

  • Save

Most newbies thinks that the best had already been taken and they don’t stand a chance against the high authority bloggers, so they ended up with the idea of starting a blog with a complete new niche.

Trying to be unique, they hunt for that particular audience which no one else is serving, believing that the lack of competition will put them on easy street.

Sorry to say, but they are screwing themselves.

Just think it logically, if there is no one else around, who will link to you? From where are your readers going to come from?

Trying to build an audience from scratch is next to suicide for your blog.

3. The audience might not like what I Write

  • Save

When you write your ideas in the public domain, there is a risk that whether your audience is going to like it or not, is one of the toughest calls for the bloggers.

Everybody feels hesitant before hitting that “Publish” button. Even your blogging heroes are a bit reluctant before publishing it.

This is the only way to improvise your blogging skills, some people will like your writings and some will not. There might be chances that youโ€™ve to deal with haters too. But in the end, all these things are going to make you a better blogger, so donโ€™t consider it as an excuse rather try to satisfy your audience and compel them to praise your work.

4. I don’t have new post ideas

Lack of post ideas
  • Save
I know it’s tough to come up with new post ideas again and again.

And there might be a big question mark in your mind, how to come up new and fresh post ideas over again to keep my blog running.

You may have some ideas now, but will you be able to come up new post ideas week after week, months after months and even year after year?

The good news is, you don’t have to worry about the future. Just start today with your post ideas which are in your bank and you’ll eventually hit the rhythm of producing great content.

Post Ideas can come from anywhere and at any time from your day to day life, while talking to a friend over the phone, taking a bath, listening to the talks of people you pass by.

I mean to say that ideas can’t be created they are discovered from within. So keep your eyes and ears wide open, you never know your next blog post idea can come from anywhere.

5. I don’t know where to start

As a blogger, you have lots of things to do. You are in a fuss from where to start? Should I brainstorm some post ideas, maintain my social media presence or work on blog design?

At last, you end up by quitting in frustration.

Make it simple and silly, start by doing a single task at a time, you can pick any but stay focused on that particular one only. It doesn’t matter what order you do the things, just create a list of things you need to accomplish and start doing it.

6. I will start it at the right time

right time to start
  • Save

Every time, you think about starting your blog, you tell yourself, “It is not the right time. As soon as I solve my X,Y,Z problems, I’ll get started.

By the time your X,Y,Z problems will be solved, you will be welcomed with a bunch of new problems. And believe me; problems are never going to end. Time can never be perfect for us, if you are waiting for the perfect conditions, then you’ll be waiting forever.

Unless you take tiny steps towards your goal, steps so small that no matter what the situation is only then you’ll be able to start in a better way otherwise you’ll be ended up in quitting.

7. I don’t have time for blogging

don't know from where to start blogging
  • Save
Yeah I know, bloggers are the busiest person on the earth. You behave as if the problems of the entire world are pondering on your shoulder and you have a no way out.

You are not investing the quality time on your blog but you are expecting loads of traffic and heavy conversions in return, it will surely happen but only in your dreams.

The success of secret behind every successful blogger is that they keep themselves occupied in any productive way they can, it can be creating content, building up relations with fellow bloggers or maybe learning and reading some useful things.

So if you want to be one of those, better start behaving like them otherwise you’re never going to make it.

Over to You

It’s time now to change your same old habits and dump all the lame excuses that you are making from so long time.

Start from today itself and don’t look behind, don’t feel regretted by your past mistakes, if you start even today than you make the difference in the upcoming time. Good Luck ๐Ÿ™‚

    I make $2000 a month with adsense and none of that excuses enters in my vocabulary. When you understand how Google works, you can generate work for the rest of your life. There are always new ways to monetize online.

  5. Rajinder Sanwal

    This being a great post needs an appreciation, as you cleared out all points on which a blogger hesitates. In-fact, most of the time is wasted thinking that whether this article will be liked by viewers or not?
    One just needs to go by his instincts and put his fingers crossed for better results.
    Thank you very much for sharing such a great post with us.

    1. Vishnu Verma

      Don’t think too much, just share your thoughts and experience with your audience then hit that freaking “Publish” button without hesitation.

  10. Soumyakanti Ray

    Hi Vishnu bro,
    Your article is very well written and explained all the problems and excuses we naturally do being a Blogger. You are right in some points that when we are dreaming to be a Pro-Blogger and expecting lots of traffic we must give our time to manage Blogs. Either-wise there will be only the admin to read his blog.
    Reading your article for the first time and I just love it.
    Thank you so much for sharing.

    1. Vishnu Verma

      Hi Soumyakanti,
      All these are my self experienced excuses, I’ve overcome them and I’m trying to improve day by day, this is message for all those day dreamer blogger who are making only excuses.
      Thank you for this great insight, I’m glad that you loved it ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. sangeetha menon

    Vishnu very brilliant post and spot on.. As bloggers we always don the ‘I don’t have time’ or ‘I am stuck’ lines. There you said it probloggers often conquer these thoughts. Their willingness and hardwork shows us what they are now.

    1. Vishnu Verma

      Hi Sangeetha,
      You ought to overcome these excuses if you want to reach any near to pro bloggers and it’s really important to start doing it from right now because time can never be right!
      Thank you for reading this post ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Raheel Mushtaq

    Couldn’t be put better than this, I’ve seen many people who says they’ll start to work on this once they solve their issues and all but really they won’t unless you stand up for yourself.

    Little steps can sometimes lead to something BIG but if you stand still reaching the destination will be impossible.

    1. Vishnu Verma

      Hi Raheel,
      You are right, only by taking little steps one can reach to the great heights. So don’t wait for anyone and start doing some damage.
      Thank you for reading.

  13. Hung Pham

    Hi Vishnu,

      Hi Hung,
      Yes these points are really a wake up call for those bloggers who are only dreaming for their success but not doing anything else.
      I’m glad that you liked the post.

  17. Debopratim Das (DPrat)

    Hi Vishnu,

    Your write up and research on this about amateur bloggers is exact. I have started blogging just 2 years back. The post #7 is the issue I am facing at present and for long time, because as my primary profession is Digital Marketing Manager of an MNC. So, time is really little to focus on my blog – Pratwords.com. Still , I try to write on weekends when I get time.

    My primary goal is to research and bring in my find-outs related to my niche (Digital Marketing) and my interests (technology, automobiles,etc.)At this very moment my focus is to make my brand rather than earning money. If the branding is good like yours, Harsh’s and other writers on SML, I believe money flows eventually.

    Your points are perfect ,solutions are exact and helpful for many amateur bloggers. Keep them coming.


    1. Vishnu Verma

      Hi Debopratim,
      Thank you for your great insight, if you’ll be able to follow these points then no one can stop you.
      Good Luck and it’s time to overcome these excuses.

  18. Harleena Singh

    Hi Vishnu,

    Good to see you at Harsh’s blog, and writing on such a wonderful topic ๐Ÿ™‚

    That’s true – niche being different is often what most bloggers feel will work for them, and while it may for some, for the rest it’s YOUR own unique voice and writing style that can make any niche work for you.

    I never thought I would open my blog and have a self development niche either, nor did I think I would add more categories to it. But one thing lead to another and it was my readers feedback that worked well for me. I guess that’s one major reason why the blog community and forum are picking up good pace on my blog now.

    If you listen to your readers, their feedback, write posts to help them, and connect with them – you can never go wrong, and your niche will work for you. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I still don’t understand how a few bloggers fall short of ideas! Or perhaps they limit their horizons so much and just write about a few limited topics that it becomes tough for them to think different! Somehow, my mind is always flooded with ideas and those I usually note and keep aside, just in case I need any.

    Lol…you are very right about #5 and #6 as most bloggers don’t know where to start or how to proceed or they wait for the right time. I guess they don’t realize that NOW is the right time! Why wait? Anytime is a good time to start I would say. And time….who ever has time! Time is something you have to make, and if you are a professional blogger, you need to learn the art of time management and find time – simple as that. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for sharing these with us. Have a nice weekend, both of you ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Vishnu Verma

      Hi Harleena,
      I think an epic blogpost of every problogger had always been able to come up with the experience only!
      What you feel, what are your views and what was your past mistakes all these things defines the success of blogger.
      When we write from our heart…it had always been noticed that something amazing has taken place, same is the case for us…we start we one category but eventually came up with very different category on which we actually want to write and that all comes from experience.
      Thank you so much Harleena, you’re the driving force behind my so far success.
      I’m glad that you liked and enjoyed reading it.

  19. Virender

    Just want to say exceeeeeellentttttt sir.
    Mind blowing article you wrote and universal truth.

    i like these lines “”Start from today itself and donโ€™t look behind, donโ€™t feel regretted by your past mistakes, if you start even today than you make the difference in upcoming time””

    Thank you very much

    1. Vishnu Verma
