It’s funny whenever I run into a blog whose owner feels bad for not posting for some months.
I think this stems from two kinds of emotions.
- Emotions that originate from the thoughts of a deep sense of obligation to one’s audience.
- Emotions that originate from the feelings of insecurity that arise due to competition with other blogs.
I’ll run from ground to the skies. So, let me start from the second point up.
I think competition is kinda dump
There is no need to monitor your competing blogs to the point of obsession.
In fact, there is a thin line between monitoring your competitors and confusing yourself.
Blogging, as every real life blogger knows, is not for the faint of arms. Your arms should always be on standby to write your next posts because inspiration is everywhere.
So, next time you feel insecure about the competition, remind yourself that they worked hard to get to where they are.
While you can get inspiration from them, don’t forget why you started blogging in the first place.
Your sense of obligation to your audience
When you get to the point this feeling envelopes you, you’ll become a blogging superstar.
Why? It is because on the competitive plane, it is hard to be original.
Contrary to the ‘street’ gist, your own creativity will spark into a burning fire that burns your words into your blog.
I’m talking here of burying yourself in your audience interests.
To round up…
Now you’re aware that all bloggers don’t blog for the same reason, I’m sure you’ll sit your ass down for a moment. Grab a mug of coffee and then think of why you started blogging.
Let those answers silently guide you into the blogging superstar that you were meant to be.
That’s it my dear friend.
