5 Reasons You Will Never Start A Blog

Ever wanted to know why you won’t start a blog? Here is a short list of reasons that stop most people from being successful in this venue. Do you fit any of these descriptions??

  1. You are way too lazy – Most people have a deep desire to make more money, get a different job, change their lives, etc. That’s why these topics are so popular. The problem is that most people won’t come anywhere close to doing anything about it. They complain about not having time or not knowing how to start one but the truth is they are just too lazy to learn how to do this stuff (which is very easy BTW) and everyone has SOMETHING to write about.
  2. You don’t think you can learn how to set up a website – MY MOM CAN SET UP A WEBSITE!!! She decided one day she wanted to learn, so we went through the steps and a few days later she was cranking out wordpress installations on her own. There is a ton of information out there on how to do it. It can be frustrating when you first get started but the documentation is very good and steps are accurate (at least from WordPress). Just stay calm and follow the steps. If you have any issues, look it up. In no time you will be setting up sites and blogging your heart out.
  3. You don’t have time – Nobody has time!! You have to make it. In all honesty, it doesn’t take all that much time to bang out a post. It’s usually the research that gets you. In order to write useful content you have to know what you are talking about. right? In order to avoid all the extra research time just write about what you know. Trust me there are plenty of people who will want to read what you have to say.
  4. You aren’t Committed enough – You just want to start a blog to make some quick money (not happening). you are just going to get bored of the little to no traffic and lack of results. Stick with it and gain some peoples trust. The traffic will follow!
  5. You have nothing to say – EVERYBODY has something interesting to talk about. The dumb stuff your kids do, the fact that you hate your job, how to change your oil, why you vote republican. Anything!! Somebody wants to know your opinion or the stuff you know!!

These are all limiting beliefs, and the truth is these reasons and the millions of other reasons you can think of are all in your head. The point is whether it’s starting a blog or quitting your job to become a bobsledder, it’s all in your head. You can do ANYTHING you THINK you can and if you don’t believe me, send me an email and we can talk..

Enjoy life!
