Realise that your inconsistency is a major setback to your success in blogging. I’m telling you that now in case you don’t know.
Let me put it in another way: You cannot create a memorable blog if you are inconsistent with it. You can be sure about that!
Commitment is required for consistency
If your blog must blossom, you must be committed to it; you must give it the needed attention.
You must post regularly, relevantly and qualitatively.
If you are consistent in blogging, it will show in the amount of attention you give to your blog.
Needless to say, lack of attention will either kill your blog or send it to the land of oblivion. It cannot be a blessing in disguise.
The bitter truth is that you don’t start a blog, abandon it and expect it to turn out the new best thing in town. You will need the right dose of commitment to make it work.
Commitment is a sure booster to consistency in blogging. You can’t have it another way.
If you have been blogging long enough, you would discover that creating useful content is not a piece of cake, neither is it a walk in the park. It requires hard-work, the best you have to offer – otherwise, you are not fully ready yet.
I hope that aligns with what you have been told before? If not, you should know you have not been told the whole truth.
Starting a blog vs. having a baby
You don’t abandon the baby to itself hoping all will be well. No, it won’t.
You don’t say to it, “Baby, welcome to the world. Please take care of yourself, you will be fine,” and run off, to do your thing. That will be irresponsible of you to do…
You don’t abandon the child you love, so why do you abandon your blog? Or don’t you have a firm belief in your blogging mission?
If your blog means anything worthwhile to you, you should demonstrate the principle of consistency in the way you run it. Pay attention to it, just as you would to a baby.
A baby is supposed to be carefully nurtured until it grows to maturity – healthy and strong.
Your blog should be consistently nurtured right from infancy, to the level you wish to take it.
Leaving your blog unattended to over an extended period of time is a-good-enough reason for it to gradually slide into comatose. And I’m sure that’s not what you want!
So take it from me again: be consistent with your and don’t abandon it. If you abandon your blog, your blog will abandon you because your readers will go elsewhere.
