Before we move any further, I would like you to make sure that you aren’t wasting your time reading this blog post. I would request you to honestly answer the following three questions.
If you miss out on a single one, I would recommend you not to proceed with your idea of blogging, and just forgot your dream of making money too. Be honest and don’t cheat yourself…
Are you motivated enough to start a blog? Or have you just heard from a friend and thought about doing so? If you’re NOT sure about it, please quit right here.
Are you an impatient person? If yes, please quit. Blogging is NOT for you unfortunately. To achieve success you have to wait for some period of time period. I’m sure blogging tests your patience and determination. So it requires tones of patience and determination. Some bloggers neglect their blogs due to lot of problems like lack of time, shortage of content ideas, etc., So be clear in these problems.
Can you spend at least 2 hours to your blog daily for 12 months? (Just 1 year!!!) Different people have different skills. For example one can complete their content work within 2 hrs some of them takes 4 to 6 hours. So time is depends upon the individual skills. Hence, set 2 hours as your minimum threshold. And if you don’t think you will be able to give enough time to your blog, then maybe, Blogging is not yours. Just leave it….
