BLOGGING | Persistence Brings Success

Success in blogging doesn't come overnight. We all know that. But how many of use can be patient enough to follow the road until seeing the light? 

Today I read the article 20 of Britain's most popular online video bloggers. What I found most of these vloggers have in common is that they started their video blogs for a long time, mostly from 2008 to 2010. And until now, year 2013, they have gained huge success and, of course, a lot of money.

This fact really hit my mind. I started assessing myself and my blogging journey. Obviously I had gone through a few blogs for the past few years. Some are totally craps and some gained a small reputation. But those slightly "popular" blogs haven't even got the chance to grow further: I shut them down. At that moment (and until now), I was always feeling bored and dissatisfied with what I had and wanted to create something better, more explosive. But I forgot that it's easier to continue with the foundation I have developed than to build a whole new thing and start from zero

If you have been following my blog, you may have seen I was at slow paced blogging because I got myself in the confusing situation I had with previous blogs. 

But now I wake up! I really do! The mentioned article really makes me think a lot about the power of persistence in blogging (and probably in other things of life). 

Persistence is indeed challenging because it requires a strong will and a great commitment. It requires a long time enough before a hint of success starts to show. I have never really had those traits in my blood, but it's time to change. At least for now, I will keep writing good content and trying to reach as far as possible to all prospective readers. I will train myself to be patient and persistent with what I'm doing. And the result will show! 

How old are your blogs? How difficult is it for you to be committed and persistent with your blogging? Please share your thoughts!

  1. ha, I totally feel like I have to delete my blog and start over every year or two. I just did that a few months ago. And yeah, my blog was starting to get popular.

    Now I'm using my own name though, so since that won't really change, maybe I'll keep this blog around longer!

    1. Since you use your name for your blog, I have a feeling you may go permanent with it. Cuz it's something like your brand, isn't it? I like your business related posts. They are so interesting and helpful to read. Even though I'm not a business woman now yet but I always want to be :)

  2. The word persistent is not as simple as how it spells. It takes a lot of effort, patience and discipline to achieve it. With these traits, we will be able to be successful with anything that we want in life. If we think we fail once, or even twice, we don't have to act like we are already failures. We may fail, but we are never be failures. We just have to keep on coming back, learn what was wrong, start again and move forward. It's not just about how many times we fail, but it's how many times we stand up and move on. Thanks for sharing! I'll be keeping my self posted to more of your blog posts. Keep it up!
