We’re already in 2013, a promising year for your Blogging business!
If you haven’t set goals to live by, you should consider doing it right away. Perhaps, you’re stuck to bad blogging habits and want to overcome them.Believe me, you’re not alone. Throughout the month of August last year, I did nothing to grow my business. I was “just” lazy.
I was literally watching movies, and reading adventure story books.Procrastination is one of such bad blogging habits and very prominent with beginners and intermediates. This post can help you overcome those habits. So that you can grow your blog’s traffic, build a formidable brand and start making a living online.You didn’t start a blog just to write about your passion – it can become a real business if you make up your mind today. Let’s quickly consider the 6 keys to overcome bad blogging habits. Don’t skim the post, please read it through.
1. Have a blogging objective
The first key that’s worked for me is to have a blogging objective. So many people are being carried away by the hot trends; what Facebook’s founder is saying. Like I said earlier, you need a direction or else, you’d miss out in the blogging world. It’s a crowded world out there and only those with a clear vision can survive.It doesn’t matter what you’ve in your head, if it’s not written down, it’s only a mere wish. And wishes oftentimes don’t come alive.
Or am I missing out something? This year, challenge yourself to give your blog the much needed attention. Your audience is waiting to support you.But without an objective, you’d be left standing alone in the dark. To overcome lack of vision, you need to write down the vision on paper, right now.
2. Get a blogging mentor
No one can survive in isolation. You’ll always need someone who’s done what you’ve intentions to do. A blogging mentor could transform the way you research, network and produce content on a daily basis.
