Never Quit Blogging. See Why
The blogosphere is an arena where millions of bloggers share their experiences with the world. But sharing can’t make anyone stay until there is a strong reason to write. Many people quit blogging.
Do you know why? You may have experienced that someone used to be very active in this blogosphere, and suddenly, he/she was nowhere.
You didn’t see any comment, no social media activity, no new blog post, and I never contacted you again. It happens quite often.
There are many things that should be learned by beginners who want to build their career in blogging. Ever since I started tasting success in blogging, I never recommended anyone to give up so easily.
But it’s so hard to tell how many bloggers reach their goals. I have met many awesome people on my way, and they still are striving to be successful.
What’re the Things You Should Know Before Starting Blogging
When I started my journey, I used to blog part-time because of my graduation. After graduating, I chose it to be my full-time career choice.
I am grateful for my decision. Today, people know me as a blogger who can solve every possible WordPress problem. Apart from that, social media marketing is my thing.
Let me mention some points you should dig.
#1. Blogging is Making Friends
Every now and then, people talk about professional blogging and how you can scale your business. Most of them are talking shit.
You can’t become a successful blogger until you connect with other bloggers. It’s all about making human relationships.
I wasn’t a social person in the starting days, but once I realized that people are so supportive, I made many friends, and Erika can tell you that.
I met Donna, Lisa, Brenda, Cori, Harleena, Nirmala, Ryan, and many other amazing people.
Once you get along with others, they help you promote your blog posts which will bring traffic to your blog. It’s directly related to your success rate.
The more friends you have, the more you will get traffic.
#2. Speaking Your Heart Out
If you have been writing for a while and you genuinely share something on your blog, you may have felt it at least once that nothing gives you more satisfaction than pouring your feeling into words.
A true writer knows what it takes to craft a worth-reading article. Most bloggers start with a great passion but end up getting discouraged.
It’s all because they have never learned the best way to enjoy blogging. It’s a mesmerizing aura to have. I have been enjoying it for many years.
People ask me what’s the best way to keep blogging. Do I need to say that? I hope you know it. Don’t you?
Well, a true blogger never asks what it takes to keep going. He/she has a goal in his/her mind which makes the magic work.
Do you have anything like that?
#3. Nothing is More Appealing than Online Branding
People are crazy about being known on the internet. That’s the reason millions of users are there on Instagram and many other social media websites.
Nothing can describe you better than words, and that’s the reason blogging is the best you can have. I am not a photogenic person and never thought to be one.
I am good at writing, and blogging is my passion. People say that I can make them fall into blogging again and again. Well, who knows the truth? I am just writing.
Do you ever think about being a blogging star? If you do, then you should also know that people idealize when someone reaches such a position.
Look at Syed Balki (the founder of WPBeginner).
There are many reputed bloggers who are changing this internet industry. Are you ready to do that?
Can You Quit Blogging After Investing So Much Time?
You may have also noticed that people like to start a WordPress blog when they read about blogging and how this field can change their lives.
But once they keep looking at the success graph, they get disappointed, and on the final note, they quit blogging. That’s the common procedure people have.
Blogging is a process, not a game to play. There is no time limitation, no fixed time to achieve your goal and no guarantee.
But if you have the patience and the strong willingness to maintain consistency, you can definitely become a successful blogger. Do you have those qualities?
If not, then never blame this blogosphere for not treating you well. Bloggers are changing the world, and everyone knows this.

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to share my experience on your blog.
I have always believed that blogging s a way to build a better business and that’s what I did. But many people give up in the middle of their journey. It’s hard to see them quit. I have seen many bloggers and only a few are still trying.
Hopefully, others won’t quit.
Have a great day.
I thank you for this inspiring article on my blog.
You are right blogging is the way to build a business and connect to others.
May many read this post of yours and think about that quitting should not be
an option for someone who is serious.Everything worthwhile takes time.
Happy to have your fitting article on my blog.
Hey really nice work yaar.Keep it up
Hi, Ravi Glad to see you at Erika’s place. 🙂
It is indeed a great joy to read your post here.
Yes, I fully agree with all the 3 points you made here, yes, is indeed! Blogging is making friends. Not only from your surroundings but instead from around the Globe. Making friendship or engaging with influencers is another aspect of blogging, If we do it consistently we can achieve that goal, As you said many start with much enthusiasm but quit in a short period, but if you have the passion it will go on! One need to have that passion in which the things they concentrate or do. otherwise, it will be a total failure and many disappear from the scene. Consistency is the key here! And that is the specialty of this art. Yes, let me call it an ART, yes, indeed it’s an art which especially depended on how we develop it around.
Thanks Ravi for this timely alert or reminder about these 3 points on need to follow diligently.
Wish you both a wonderful and profitable year ahead in blogging. 🙂
Consistency is always the first thing to having a successful business. People aren’t fond of what they need to invest. And that’s the time. I have made many friends in this arena which is amazing.
Hope to meet some new people this year.
Thanks for stopping by.
I really liked reading your post here. You got some great tips and are real with the message for the new bloggers.
One big lesson for me was the social part of the blogging journey. I was also not a very social blogger at the beginning. And that’s okay as long as you realize what you need to do and who you need to become in order to be a successful blogger.
That’s another tip I would add, think about the person you need to become in order to be that successful blogger. Think about the actions of that person and do it. Eventually, everything will match up – and you will get the results of a successful blogger because you have been acting like one! 😉
Thanks for sharing this Erika!
Warm regards! 😀
I am happy you liked Ravi’s post. And you are right about the person you need to become.
It is said, act as if, and the feeling of already being successful will help to get in the
right attitude. This is a great tip. Thank you
Have a successful year 2018
Same here this blog is very usefull for newbie .I keep visiting this site daily.
I have never thought about quitting blogging. I have made several necessary pivots, but never to quit.
Good for you Elise,
keep inspiring and doing good work.
Thanks and all the best
Hi Erika and Ravi,
Blogging is an art I think. Some just do not get it that it’s a lot of hard work.
If you look at bloggers who are doing very well they have been consistently moving forward with their craft.
I agree with Philip it is a wonderful way to make friends around the world. Used for business blogs have come a long way.
Nice to see your gestie on Erika’s site. ( got that term from Ryan B’s post )
you are right blogging is an art. like every artist a blogger has to find his audience who does like his art.
Good that today it is possible to reach people all over the world and make connections and make friends.
I like the term “gestie”, Ryan has always something new 🙂 I am glad for Ravi’s gestie.
Thank you for your comment 🙂
Glad to see you here. Loved reading your post. You have shared some great tips that are really going to help everyone.
Thanks for sharing!
I am happy to have Ravi writing a guest post on my blog. He is doing good work and I hope it will help many as well.
Thank you for your comment
Hi Erika and Ravi, great points made here. I just did my annual round up post, thanking commenters for their time and interaction. I always include a link to the blog and am always surprised at how many blogs have fallen by the wayside when I go through the list.
Enjoy the journey!
You are right, sometimes if we want to revisit blogs, they are gone.
Many do not have the passion blogging needs and patience.
Thank you for your visit
The best part of blogging for me has been the online (and a couple of offline) friends that I have made over the years. I have not been consistent but will do a bit better this year.
I think it is nice to find like-minded people and build a relationship online.
Good, there is no border and the world is open for us to share and explore.
Blogging is a release of ideas for me. I discover something new and I like to share what I have learned.
you right, it is beautiful to be able to share insights and new ideas with others through blogging.
Thank you for your comment
I am not sure about those 3 but your article will help me for sure to keep on blogging.
Inspiring message Ravi and Erika. I have been blogging for nearly 10 years and I can honestly say I’ve never considered quitting and your point about speaking your heart out describes it well, I have a passion and I communicate it through writing and coaching. I value the many online friendships I’ve made, but it can be lonely during the long hours of researching and writing. What sustains me are the messages I receive from my awesome readers and community of subscribers. As long as I am able to help them live stronger more fulfilling lives I’ll continue to blog.
let us hope ,Ravi can inspire more people to continue.
You are right it can be lonely while searching and writing, but all is rewarded if there are good respond and friendships.
It is truly fulfilling to be able to help by speaking our heart.Blogging needs passion to make it work.
Thank you for your insights
Nice article erika..

I was planing to quit blogging but your article inspired and now i am not gonna quit it…Instead i will harder to maintain a better blog…
Keep up the good work..
I am glad, Ravi’s post inspired you to continue, Kuzey
It needs patience and being consistent.
All the best
Thats something we all see regularly, some one who was active, was doing good with their blogs and business but suddenly
they went down, nothing from their side, which give the proof that they are still active.
The main thing is that they went up for the wrong niche and after some time they do not have ideas on what to write upon.
That’s why pro blogger always suggest to pick up a niche on which we have command, so that we never go out of ideas to
generate blog post.
Thats the key, if want to get success then we need to make friends in the blogging world. Just being sticked in our own
blogging bubble ain’t taking us too far in our journey, thus its obvious to break the blogging bubble and went out
and connect with like minded people.
Thanks for the share.
you say it right, a blogger needs to choose a niche which he loves and can write about.
This ensures that there is always something new he learns and can write about.
Connecting with like-minded people is, in any case, good and helps to stay motivated.
I think Ravi did a great job with his post here.
Thank you for your insights and comment

Great article. very useful information and tips.
I am glad you liked Ravis post and found the informations useful.
Glad to see you here at Erica Mohseen-Beyk page, well as you already know that I have started my blog in 2014, I personally know many individuals who start their blogs. Indeed they have excellent writing skills, but after some time they quit. It’s all because their main aim to earn money instantly. In my opinion, blogging is a great way to earn money but it will take some time.
Many thanks for lovely share Ravi 🙂
Everything takes some time. To build a blogging business, you have to keep consistent so that people can know your name. Building a blogging brand is needed.
I am glad that you have been chasing your goal for a long time.
Best of luck.
Enjoy your day.
This is quite an awesome post. As far as quitting blogging is concerned I can never afford to quit. Simply because, blogging has taught me a lot of things such as to be disciplined, have patience, trust in oneself and never give up are few to name. If you follow these rules then you will definitely succeed.
Very informative post
Thanks for Sharing

There’s so much to learn in order to be successful in this field and it is so amazing that there are so many learning materials and tips out there such as this article.
Being a new blogger this post is just like gold to me. Thanks for sharing such insights. Great Work. Much appreciated.
I am glad you liked Ravi’s article and you are right ,there is always a lot to learn.
Keep going and thanks for your comment.
You were right. There is no way for a blogger to make it in the blogosphere without networking with others. It is extremely helpful to have friends that do not have a problem sharing your content, commenting on it, and giving you feedback when you need it. Working with like-minded people and helping each other grow is how blogging became a thing in the first place, and that is how bloggers can survive in the blogosphere. Otherwise, they won’t see much success.
Thanks for sharing!

Blogging is like making friends. As blogging gives us opportunity to connect with other bloggers & making a relationships & strong connection with them. Blogging is a good way of speaking the heart out by sharing our own ideas, opinions & views. Doing an online branding will be helpful for getting the person known on internet. These reasons are a true reasons which will never let anyone to quit blogging and make them fall in blogging. As this article will motivate many people for doing more blogging.
Very helpful article and thanks for a share.

Hi Ravi & Erika,
Nice article. Even those who are at the edge of winding up will get motivated after reading this post. Rightly said, it is hard to quit blogging once we are bonded with more mates. Thanks for sharing it!
Hopefully, the right people get to read this post and do not give up.
I think to get together and bonding is powerful and helps to stay motivated.
I like that recently there are being groups created where bloggers help each other.
Thank you for your comment
Ravi I am with you buddy. We speak from our hearts, make so many friends and genuinely enjoy the ride. What a journey blogging is for us!

Hey Ravi & Erika,
Today, we live in a world where competition is fierce and relationships with customers are more important than ever.
Maintaining relevance is key to a successful blog and to do this, you must understand your content core and your audience.
Blogging can drive great results for a business not only as it relates to loyalty but also revenue. You just have to understand the value of building a relationship with your customers before going in for the sale.
Eventually, thanks for sharing your wonderful thought with us.
With best wishes,
Ravi did write this post a while ago and I updated it, but it is always relevant.
You are right, a good relationship with customers is crucial for success. Also, persistence is needed to have success with blogging.
Many give up too early.
