How many times have you thought of quitting blogging?
Does stuff ever get discouraging while blogging?Lack of motivation,lack of readers,lack of comments,lack of ideas?What do you think is the most painful thing for any blogger?What causes the most frustration?
:-D LOL!!!Yeah...and add to that a slow PC...the blue screen of death.....Blogger acting up and screwing up all your formatting...LOL
If you write for others, you'll have lots of things to get frustrated about
The path to creation has to necessarily be paved with suffering. Dejection and self doubt are integral to any creative activity.
I wish Indiblogger had a like button, I would have definitely liked that comment TF!
Lack of motivation, writer's block, frustration, self doubt, thinking your writing is shit :P .. All of that, and so much more!
I've deleted 7 published posts once :/ And have come close to deleting my blog 2x, but haven't ..
Iam already not a very active blogger but I have certainly made a consistency of at least 1 post per month and doing that since almost 2005. So never thought of quitting as such as I know i will come back. Yes No of Visitors and comments make me feel good and incourage but their absense dosent depresses me as more or less I write what i think and speak so Its meeting with me. And how could i miss a meeting with a wonderful person like me :D.Yes you can say I write for myself first.Though when some/all of my written part vanishes (due to light or net disconnect) or definately irritates me
:-) Ahh...system glitches..yep they do tend to get on one's nerves...
The best unique content but no traffic or good traffic but no earning from the blog, can cause the biigest frustration......
People will real passion won't think about earnings. Most of the people who blog for earnings are ones reproducing second hand stuff and calling themselves bloggers.
Earnings are the perks that (might) come along your way as a result of your hard work and dedication and you need to have a lot of patience for that. In essence - You earn because you blog. It should never be the other way round otherwise it can cause you more harm than good.
Though I have never thought of quitting, but I've seen many go and it's really sad when that happens... Lack of time, may be.
Lack of time is what they say. But what it means is that blogging does not figure high on priority against other competing activities for your time - which means the passion is gone.
Valid point TF, a break is still good to take once in a while but to break out completely is quite disappointing to say the least.
