Struggling with your blog can be debilitating.
After spending weeks, months or even years having a difficult time boosting your traffic or profits you may be tempted to throw in the towel.
Take a deep breath. Relax.
All it takes is following a few basic tips to turn the corner.
Going from struggling to successful blogger may take some time and feel uncomfortable but the rewards of living your dreams through blogging are well worth the effort.
1: Blog Mainly for Fun
We all want to make money with our blogs.
I get it.
But if you struggle you simply are devoting too much energy to getting and not enough energy to giving value.
Open income streams of course but focus heavily on blogging mainly for fun to detach largely from traffic and money outcomes. By giving most of your energy to blogging for fun, with love, you will study blogging, learn to blog, practice your writing, create value and build friendships with successful bloggers, all of which dissolve your struggles.
See traffic and profits as extra, or icing on the cake, or as the bonus byproduct of having fun with blogging.
This is the proper space to be in if you want to obliterate your blogging struggles.
2: Follow the Leader
Follow the blogging leader. Or leaders.
Leave your struggles behind.
Following advice from 1 to 3 high energy, heart-centered, successful bloggers in your niche is a powerful way to conquer your blogging struggles.
Successful bloggers will show you the straight and narrow path to rocking out your blog.
When you follow these bloggers and take their advice to heart you will begin doing freeing, fun and sometimes highly uncomfortable things that will accelerate your blogging success quickly.
Buy their courses, hire them to coach you and patiently read, study and practice putting their teachings into action.
Become successful by learning from successful bloggers.
Makes sense, right?
3: Feel the Fear Behind Your Struggle
Feel the fear behind your struggles to root out the essence of your problems.
All blogging struggles are based on some deep fear. If you are having a tough time driving traffic you are afraid of guest posting, blog commenting and building an email list. Once you engage in those practices with positive energy backing your actions your blog traffic will increase steadily, then exponentially, when you keep at it.
Most bloggers never dive into their deepest blogging fears and feel these emotions which is why most bloggers struggle during the entirety of their online career.
Be with your fears. Feel the pain of failure, or feel the fear of criticism, or feel the intimate terror of having wasted your time. These moments may be unpleasant but once you purge the fear you starve your struggles of their life force, allowing you to move forward with sound, proven blogging tactics to boost your blog traffic and income.
4: Help Folks all Day Long
Help folks all day long through a wide range of channels.
Answer questions related to your niche on Quora, Facebook Groups, and Google Plus Communities.
sk your readers how you can help them.
The struggle is generally rooted in you being stingy with your knowledge. Giving freely and cutting the strings, by not looking for anything in return from any particular person, is the best way to leave your struggles behind for good.
Giving freely is the prescription for any struggling blogger.
If you are new to blogging you will have to be a student of blogging to learn concepts well enough to teach people. Commit to learning your niche inside-out and you will gain the confidence and clarity needed to become a generous teacher.
5: Double Down on Your Energy Work
Doubling down on energy management makes your blog grow like mad.
All of your struggles are rooted in resistance or energetic blocks. If you spend more time on managing your energy as soon as you wake up – every day – you will dissolve the blocks and your struggles.
Meditation. Prayer. Yoga. Building a gratitude list. Do whatever vibes with you but remain diligent in managing your energy.
When you spend more time working on clearing your inner world, you will attract the people, ideas, and circumstances to promote your blogging success. You will also move into inspired action regularly, helping people generously, which is an instant struggle dissolver.
