Gone the days when people used to blog what they love.
Gone the days when people used to blog about the things for which they are passionate about.
Gone the days when people used to blog, FOR NO MONEY.
And finally gone the days when people used to blog for PEOPLE.
Blogging have been turned into a big business and people are coming into blogging with only one intention in mind, and that is; MONEY.
Who in this DAMN FAST world have time to write free and to serve people, and without looking for their own benefits?
PS: They are some exceptional cases too, who are doing work for charities and really helping people without even getting paid a PENNY.
Idea about writing this came in my mind as I am seeing many bloggers those are saying, “you are not a blogger, you are a businessman.” For me I would like to be called businessman rather than blogger. Because no one knows in our society that what blogging is, but they know very well about businesses.
Why I am saying it a business?
I have some strong points which will force you to think upon it. After reading complete article you will also be saying that we are into blogging business and we are on the right path.
So let’s start.
1. You are devoting time like your business
If you are a newbie then I can bet that you are spending 10+ hours daily on your blog. Even I spent in my starting days and still spending this much time daily for my blogs.
You are putting all your efforts either they are to make backlinks, to write guest posts or to submit article in social bookmarking sites, you are doing this to make your blog popular. You are doing this because you know when your blog will reach at a level you will be making awesome money.
Businesses also do the same. They put 100% of their efforts to make their company popular.
So if you are giving time to your blog, then in short you are building your business.
2. You are making connections
No business in this world got success without making links with people.
Getting connected with the people of same niche is one of the thing which every leader did in the industry. This is the only blueprint which will widen your circle because, “People recommend people.”
You are making connections with them so that you can exchange the ideas and you can learn something new from them.
You are making connection so that you can takes benefits from them, either your motive is to turn them into loyal reader or to get some other blogging benefits. But at the end you have some motive in your mind like businessman have.
3. You are worrying about your blog growth
Tell me one thing – Why are you crying when Google is banning your AdSense account?
Answer is simple – because now you know that making money will be hard without AdSense.
Every blogger is worrying about PageRank, Traffic and various other blogging factor. They are into depression if they are not getting traffic and even into more depression when Google gave them PR2 from PR4 on their sites.
You have same mind-set like businessman have. This is same like you have set-up your firm and customers are not coming in your outlet. It is same like graph of your business growth is degrading and you are worrying.
So, if you have any worry in your mind about your blog then you are into business.
4. You are investing money in it
It’s great if you are investing money in your blog.
Either you are buying premium theme, plugin or buying any keyword research software.
You are doing this because you know very well that this will increase your traffic and you will be having more business with your blog.
Business always need investment to make it big and to reach maximum audience. So if you are doing this then you are on right path.
I have expressed my thoughts about blogging business. For me blogging is a full-time business and I am very serious for my business. I am putting my best to make it popular and take it to next level.
Hope I will be having YOU with me in this journey.
Start treating your blog like a business, because until this is a hobby you are not going to make big with it.
All the very best. See you soon in next article.
