Top 5 Negative Things about Blogs

Blogs first started as a way for people to share with others their feelings, their poetry, thoughts and as a record of things they had done or seen. Over time they have evolved and although there are still millions of blogs that are based on the simple premises of yesterday, many current blogs are business oriented or even belong to businesses themselves.

5 negative things about blogs

There are literally tens of millions of people who are either writing blogs, or thinking of writing blogs with an eye to create income from them. This post is written aimed squarely at them. It isn’t meant to dissuade or to try to stop them from their goals, but instead offer a sober second look at some realities of blogging. I suppose instead of it being 5 negative things about blogs, it could have been called something else like this.5 Harsh Realities About Blogs

So What Are 5 Negative Things About Blogs?

1. It Takes A Long Time To Build An Audience

blogThis has to be the hardest one of the 5 negative things about blogs to accept as truth and to deal with. When you first begin and you have no one reading your blogs, not even your cat, cause cats can’t read although he may be forced to listen to you reading it aloud, you have to have faith. Faith that someday, somehow, someone will start to read your blog, then a second person, then another. It is a slow process, and one that can cause you grief if you aren’t a strong person. You do not want analytics at this point, because you DON’T WANT to know how many people are reading your blog. It’s not enough. Reality is, it’s never enough. The numbers will grow, but you will have to promote your own blog. Do so everywhere you can.

2. People Are Going To Rip-Off Your Content

Get used to it. And accept that it will happen. Some writers attempt to get around this by offering people access to all their blog posts, as long as they give them the credits and please a backlink. Don’t count on it. Don’t be surprised to find your content all over the internet with no credits or mention of you whatsoever. Of course you can sue. Good luck with that. My advice? Get over it, move on and create more content. And congratulate yourself for creating something of such value that others are motivated to steal it from you. The reality is that it is unlikely to cause you either much hardship or success, so try to keep it in perspective. Successful people and businesses get ripped off everyday and still carry on. You should too.  5 negative things about blogs

    These are two tips that every beginner should know when it comes to blogging. It does take quite a bit of time to build an audience. I know it did for me and also people are going to take some of your ideas and make it their own. This could be a good or bad think. As you mentioned tt depends on the person that took your ideas.
