The easiest thing in blog-o-sphere is to start a new blog but to maintain it when it gets to some level is the main thing in blog-o-sphere.

Most newbie blogger started blogging because they heard some people do make money blogging, and jump into blogging community with basic knowledge of what blog is! After a newbie have successfully started a blog, what are the likelihood encounters that can bring in them the mind-set of quitting from blogging community? Below are 6 reasons why newbie bloggers may end up quitting blogging community.

1. Market study: Starting a successful blogging career need a sound knowledge about the industry. It’s very important to look before leaping else the early mind-set will flip.

Most misuse the medium by spamming the so call social network there by endangering their blogging career and nobody/limited number of people (loyal friend) will click on their share links or articles.

Conclusion: If any newbie blogger is facing any of these point, it’s high time to move from raw level to a refined level, learn from the best and you will definitely become the best as long as you are teachable and a good learner.

    Hi Adesanmi

    Most were given a pipe dream of all that you have to do is put up a website and they will come. It is a hard reality to face, as it never happens….unless you are famous before you start. I think if all the gurus that lured us in to the web had been truthful, many would not have spent thousands of dollars they could not afford to spend on dead promises. It is a tough world out here on the web and although we may be save in our homes our computers are not and we are constantly bombarded with spam, viruses and unscrupulous folks that are quick to want you to part with your money on the next answer to your web business.

    Newbies are like babes in the woods with wolves waiting for them. Soon they are out of money and discouraged and then they quit, all with a bitter taste in their mouth for anything online.

  9. Hi Adesanmi,

    I agree with all your points. I think I'd add that newbies are often too eager to make money quickly and then get disheartened when the cash doesn't start rolling in right away. I also think people don't realise, when they set out, all the practical skills they're going to have to acquire in order to run a blog – the techie stuff has almost defeated me, at times, and if you don't have coding skills etc. it can be quite a challenge.

  11. Hi Adesanmi,

    Oh those poor newbies! It is so easy for them to think that all they have to do is blog and the money will roll in. But we, as seasoned bloggers are responsible to get the word out like you did in this post that money does not come easily. Just like in any business, there are many parts to it. Blogging is just one part of the entire spectrum.
    Thanks for lending people a hand.

    Hi Donna,

    It is my great pleasure having you here on my blog, thank you so much for your contribution and the understanding!
    My recent post One reason why I will stop visiting your blog

  13. I had no idea why doing a blog was necessary. I went to several business sites and starting reading blogs and that they would help your business. The one article I read I could not understand that they thought it was necessary to have a social media manager. Thought this idea was nuts. With that said now I am getting involved in blogging I can see where that article was not so crazy. It is very time consuming and you have to be willing to put the time and effort or you get so overwhelmed you stop. Blogging is just another part of a good business plan

  14. Procrastination and marketing/advertising are the most important and crucial steps to remain consistent and competitive in blogging. And right now I am undergoing the lack of both due to my work load.
    Thanks a lot for making me aware.

  15. Great piece, Adesanmi.

    You've made some great points as to why many new bloggers don't make it blogging.

    I've tried to start a blog several times before the one I have now. The reason I failed with my other blogs is because I didn't fully understand all that goes into building a successful blog as far and the time that it takes. Plus, I didn't realize that I had to humble myself and ask for help.

    That's the biggest thing, asking for help; you can't be afraid to do so. That's how we're all going to make it blogging and get to our goals – by helping each other.

    It's also important to not shy away from what it takes to really create great content that your audience can benefit from on a high level.

    I believe once newbies grasp these two concepts, putting in the time to create quality content, and then asking for help – then they will be successful much quicker.

    This is my first time visiting your blog, Adesanmi, and I’m loving what I’ve seen and read so far. I’ll be sure to share this piece with my social circle. I’ll also comment and share it with the BizSugar community.

    Keep the great content coming and I look forward to connecting with you more soon.
