One of the most critical issue bloggers faces in blog-o-sphere is dealing with changes as a subject of control when there are lapses in our blogging career. Most of difficulties and unhappiness bloggers encountered came into existence as a result of our inability to control most of the things that happened to us in blog-o-sphere, ranging from our blog traffic, writing quality content, targeting desiring audience, and monetizing our blog, to generate some income as a result of our selfless effort online as a blogger.

Bloggers have little or no control over the changes that happens to them in blog-o-sphere; like our blog visitors hitting the like button, sharing our post, leaving a comment,  and converting our first time visitors to a unique visitor since this can only be done through providing a unique content which is one of our blogging top-most priority.

Blogging is not like: The main reason why you prefer your home to a strange land where you have the right to walk around, feel completely in control of what happened around you but it’s a battle feed where you know nobody other than yourself and your writing skills. The steps to be taken in having control over our activities as a blogger will follow the saying that;

Experience is not what happen to you;

it is what you do with what happen to your.                                                                                                                            Thomas Huxley.

Accepting the following facts about your blog downtime will keep your head straight in the community. 

 1. Accept change as a reality: The best way to summoned unexpected occurrence is to sit back and think about the way forward. Sometimes, changing is a most and inevitable, just like a blogger who just moved his blog from one platform to another (From blogger to wordpress for instance), definitely the tendency to loose huge traffic is very high but when this is known, such blogger only need to sit back and think about the way forward. The starting point in dealing with difficulties is to be willing to find solution to the problem.

As a blogger, to be able to solve unexpected changes in blogging community, the only solution is to admit that “An accurate diagnosed sickness is half-cured”. Sit down, think about the causes of the change and find solution to it.

2.What is the worst possible outcome:  Naturally, this should be the question bugling our mind when sudden changes took place since the deed has been done, then what the possible outcome will be. Decrease in blog traffic will not earn our blog any professional badge rather decreases our blog moral. Knowing the possible outcome will develop a zealous mind to quickly think about the next line of action on how to combat the change and bring things back to normal which I discussed in point 1. The willingness to accept whatever the outcome might be will give us the courage to find a possible solution within a limited time.

3. Damage control process: Adjusting our behaviour and action to the new situation in this perspective can be of help. All you have to do under this headline is to simply ask yourself about the possible steps I can take to bring things back to normal and to stop the worst possible outcome from being surface. Many called this mini-max regret instead of damage action process. Traffic lost can drastically drawback our blog AlexaRank, and we bloggers believed that the lesser the AlexaRank of a blog the higher the blog traffic.

The moment you accept change and decided to think about the aftermath, you will definitely be adjusting your consciousness to the new change and fully prepared to take a step further in order to bring things back to normal.

 4. Develop a method: Do believe that crisis is a change that tries to take place, since change is irresistible; them think about the strategy to either prevent any negative changes or strategy to follow to redeem back the loss of your blog virtue. The greatest problem for bloggers for a start is traffic, and increasing this drastically may involve a lot of activities, strategy and as well engaging in social activities to gain maximum exposure.

Conclusion: If you look into any sudden change, there will always be something new to learn which must have be done wrong in the first place and at time it’s of great beneficiary because your knowledge about the causes of the mistake (s) and how to curb it will increase.

  4. Hey buddy Great post ever, I had to re-read; it’s far beyond blogging tips. I guess I’ll call this a journey to becoming an entrepreneur.

    Everybody know that change is inevitable but are they really prepared for it? That the question they should as themselves.

    I’ve experience most of the one you mentioned above and one of them is decrease in traffic but we shouldn’t just stop there, we must put our head straight and face reality. Good thing you included the quote, it says it all.

    Have a great week ahead buddy.
