That is the word that you have to avoid when you start blogging. You learn that lots of people out there are making money from just blogging and you think you can do that too. So you open a blog and then put what ever advertisement in your blog so that you can earn money. This actually the worse thing that had been done by many of us.
Some of the people out there had been thinking of blogging to make money. Yes it is true. But, how long you can wait and how long you can keep writting in the essence of getting money if you don’t even have the passion of blogging?
When you first start blogging, you will have to think about a lot of things;
- What will be the first thing you will write?
- What will be the next thing you will write?
- How much you like to talk about the topic?
- Could you keep on talking about the topic?
- Will you ever copycat people’s topic?
- etc etc etc…
but what the most important was did I blog for MONEY?? This is the first thing you have to think. If you never think about this, you wont be updating or writting for the next 6 to 12 months.
So if you just started blogging and thinking that you blog for money, it is better for you to change your mind set to blogging for sharing the things that you like to everyone.
Start talk about your personal experience on doing something and give some advice or maybe introduce your specialty that might be helping other who in needs. With this topics on your blog, you actually will slowly develop a passion inside yourself to write something for people to read in the internet.
If you turn out to be someone who blog for passion, when you receive your first payment (e.g Googleadsense payment) you will think that it was not too long to wait until you get your money. But if you are someone who blog for money, in the third months you will start doubting ‘can you really get money??’.
The doubts that exist within you will be the thing that might caused you to slowly stop writting. If that happen, you no longer will have the passion to write and maybe you will eventually stop at the early stage of your blog development.
So if right now you are in this track, try to go to the right track. I’ve seen a lot of friends out there that did not update their blog right now as they feel it is very long until they could make money. My only advice is keep in mind that ‘I blog for passion’ and thing will actually change.
