    1. Hey Sonali,

      Patience is the key to build a better blog. People leave blogging after trying for a few months. They should know that it requires so much time.
      Thanks for stopping by.
      Have a great day.

  3. Well, I know one truth about blogging.

    Unlike a brick and mortar business, blogging requires less capital to start. You would have to get equipments and a location for your physical business but blogging requires just a laptop and internet connection.

    1. Hey Isaac,

      There are many other things about blogging. You can’t just start blogging with a laptop. You should have the ideas to spread. You should learn about the blogosphere.
      Thanks for taking the time to comment.

  4. Hey Man This write up is cool.

    I grabbed two or more tips from this post.

    Keep writing this wonderful articles Bro.

  5. Hi Ravi, Excellent article about the pros and cons of starting a blog. Too often people see only one side of blogging, the positive or the negative. And almost always people don’t know what they’re getting themselves into when they start a blog.

    People who read this will have a much better idea of what to expect should they choose to start a blog. I would add another benefit: you will learn to read your words through the eyes of others.

    When you write an article and publish it on a blog, many people will read it (hopefully!). Each person who reads the article will have a different perspective, different grasp of the language, different opinions and different interpretation.

    Blog writers have to be very careful to craft their message so it is understood by all. Misunderstandings can completely undermine the message. Bloggers quickly learn that they need to write so they will be understood by all.

    1. Hey Carolyn,

      You can never expect the same response from everyone. Whenever you publish any article, people would have a different opinion. Most of the people read the blog post, but they don’t really grasp the way you want them.

      Blogging has both the sides. A newbie should learn the hard way of blogging which requires the efforts.
      Thanks for sharing your views.
      Have a great week.

    1. Hey Lorraine,

      A blog needs so much than you think. The promotion of the blog posts require so much time. You should build a strategy. Everyone doesn’t have that much of patience.
      Thanks for stopping by.
      Enjoy your day.

  6. Well said brother! Blogging is really something adventurous to get into, its just never ending process ! Thank you for this beautiful post:)

  7. Hi Ravi,
    Yet another wonderful guide.
    You dealt with almost everything in blogging.
    Good one, As Lorraine said, Blog Promotion is a vital part of blogging.
    Unless we tell about it or shout about it how others will know and visit or read.
    It is indeed one of the top most function immediately after pressing the PUBLISH Button!
    I have read about it in some of the influencers pages about it! A ration of 80:20 that is 20% time for the creation of the page and 80% time for the promotion of it! LOL
    May sometimes it looks funny, but I feel and experience it that it is true!
    Thanks Ravi for sharing this.
    Keep sharing
    May you have a great time of sharing and caring
    Best
    ~ Philip

    1. Hey Philip,

      From the past couple of years, I have experienced that the generation of the content would be useless if you don’t put the efforts to promote it.

      Yeah, that 80/20 rule is for everyone. You must follow the guide and boost your traffic. For a better blog, you should have the best audience.

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
      Have a great day.

  8. Hi,

    Great article. I am not sure if I am blogger or writer. I create content, a lot of it. I never market it other than sharing through my linked social media pages. I am only beginning to earn some money after writing consistently since 2012. It’s a 24/7 job. I have gone back and rewritten a lot of my earlier work as it often seems sloppy when compared to my recent efforts. Yes, definitely, the more you write, the better you write. I am heading towards 8 million views with approximately 8 thousand views a day from over 200 countries. I write to suit myself, not as per what might sell. People like it or not and am sure most of it would be trashed by a real editor, but I can’t afford one of those. I must stay with free wordpress for the moment as my heavy traffic would require a dedicated server. That costs too much. Maybe next year if it all goes well.

    I never thought I would get this far or stay at it. Patience and diligence is a must. Now I look upon it as my legacy to the world. I cannot die until it is finished. It might kill me first!

    I will keep an eye out for your posts.

    Vivien

    1. Hey Vivien,

      A writer, a blogger, everyone has a sense of crafting the content which can convert. People need something to read which can motivate them. The info you provide should consist the quality.

      It’s good to know that you have been pursuing your blogging career since 2012. The results are showing.
      WordPress.com can be tricky sometimes. You don’t really have the freedom to alter your blog. I have always preferred WordPress.org as the professional platform.

      Thanks for sharing your experience.
      ~Ravi
