Nowadays, time is more previous than anything in the world.
If you don’t know that blogging is one of the things that take time. However, that is before because options were limited and only a few things to do. And now there many ways which can help you speed up the process. Of course, it will still take time but not as much as before. The issue is that whether you are going in the right path or not. Something that I want to share with you.
Q: Why blogging take time to succeed?
A: Have you asked yourself this question? Well, building a good blog take time with producing really good content. Getting notice by Google and other search engine. Also, on social media when promoting your blog and trying to get more traffic to your blog. This can take time to get good results.
However, if you notice, these all of the things nowadays can be much easier and faster to do. And I can go for examples if you want but I’m sure it’s obvious to everyone. Now, it depends on you and how much effort you put in. That can determine the speed rate off your blog growth. Also, what is your main goal of blogging can determine the path.
Things you will learn in this post:
- A few things bloggers would expect in a blogger life
- How to make the blogging journey fun
- Some tips to help you succeed and achieve your goals.
The reason why I want to mention about this. Because all of them connect in the blogging journey. If you know what to expect, you would have an idea of what to do. And making the journey fun would help you to maintain consistency and keep going. Also, the last one will be needed to help you achieve your goals whether blogging seriously or as a hobby.
Blogging is fun and a lot of people enjoy reading blogs. However, you have to put the effort in if you want to succeed. And make sure that you are doing the right task to grow and move toward your dreams. Many bloggers that I know in the past stopped or got distracted. Well, I’m saying this because their reason of blogging was to turn it into profitable blog for them.
What to expect in a blogger life
Well, I will start with this one because it’s important. It also help you to get an idea of how to make your journey fun. I wish I can mention everything but I’m going to mention the most important ones. Things that are common with many bloggers in the blogging industry. Give a day life of a blogger and what bloggers do.

blog vs vlog: blogging or vlogging is better for earning
It’s not supposed to be the same for every bloggers. Because they have different niches and topics. Which give them different tasks to do and different lifestyle. So, the list below can be different for many bloggers. You need to figure out what type you fit in based on what you blog about.
There is no one blogger who don’t stop learning every day. This is part of our blogging job. And if you don’t do it, then, it’s time for a change. Don’t stress yourself with overwhelming learning things. Take your pace and learn as much as possible but make sure it’s consistent.
Many blogger need to make this as a habit to learn new things. And not only that but there are more things to learn.
- How to be successful
- Overcome obstacles
- Solving problems
- Improving your content and things
You can learn about these things and many more. Try to focus on what is really important that can help you achieve your blogging goals. Especially, if you are a full time blogger, if you think you got everything covered, trust me, that is not true and always have something to learn.
Writing blog posts and scheduling
Even if you write one blog post a week. You would still need to write and make sure you have enough draft. This way, you don’t lose consistency. And make sure always to post on time. Something many bloggers struggle to do because they don’t write before the posting day.
This is something I’ve struggled for the longest time. And if you read some of my blogs, you would notice that. My old blog posts used to start sharing things about this. However, now it’s different and it’s better than before. And that is because writing and scheduling a lot. It helps a lot to stay ahead and get backup in case you got busy. You still will have posts to publish if you have drafts and ready post.
Marketing every day
I feel like from all the content creators on the internet. Bloggers work the most on marketing. You can find this in the day of many bloggers. They don’t stop marketing no matter what. Make sure to establish a consistency with marketing as well to maintain good growth.
Something I would say is that you need to determine your marketing plan and strategy. That will help you to maintain consistency and if you want to change it. Try to study the change and prepare before you begin. Then, pick a date to start with your new changes. Because it’s very important and doing random things and sharing whenever or wherever is not going to help at all.
Ways to make blogging journey fun for blogger life
I mentioned some of the main important things for what you would expect. Now I want to share how make blogger life fun and enjoy the process. And you will see that everything comes together when you read until the end. Everything will help you to get the best experience with blogging.
Not all about blogging
The first one that I want to mention about making the journey fun is not all about blogging. Well, I learned this from experience in the past. And trust me when I say this comes from the bottom of heart. Before, I used to just focus on my blog and not giving time to anything else. Today I regret my decision and wish that I gave time for other things.
Q: How to maintain doing other things while blogging?
A: Good question, well, the best way to go about this is organizing your day. It won’t be difficult to list all your blogging tasks. And put them in your daily schedule. Then, make sure to include other things and take the hours needed to finish the tasks. There a lot of tasks and it’s impossible to finish them all in one day. So, make sure to choose the important and be wise with that.
Give time for a lot of things and here are some examples:
- Spending time with family
- Having normal chats with bloggers’ friends
- Going out for a drink or dinner with friends and family
- Enjoying some movie
- Having a good sleep
Well, these are some of the important things. I know it’s your blogging journey but without these, it wouldn’t be fun. And you might give up any minute because of the overwhelming and overthinking. Blogging can be treated as your 6-9 hours job when it comes to being a full time blogger or serious with blogging.
Take the negative results in a positive perspective
Don’t stress over the negative results. That won’t help with anything but you give you one more step to stopping and never blog again. Although you consistently learning, you would get bad results. However, stay positive and focus on the process. When you being positive, it will give you the power and will to fix it and try again.
There will be many problems and negative results in the blogging journey. So, if you want to make it fun and keep going. Don’t let this to make you feel down or unmotivated. Stay positive and focus on the process while you fix the issues that caused to have the negative results.
Stay active in the community and have fun moments
Well, it’s important to be active in the community but you need to have good and fun moments with them. I’ve seen some bloggers being in a podcast or live stream. It’s fun and can make it better for you to keep blogging. Whether on social media or local communities in events.
Don’t hesitate to talk with others and have good time with them. Make new friends and build good friendship with them. Life is short to just focus on blogging and not having moments and being active in the community. Help others with their blogging questions and engage with their stuff. These can be good things to do and I learned that just recently, to be honest.
Tips to help you achieve your goals and successful blogger life
The last part of this post is about how to achieve your goals. And I will put it in a simple perspective. This way, you can understand it well. I’ve seen so many bloggers struggle because they are not clear and not doing these simple tips. Since this post is not mainly about this. I will mention some of the most important tips.
Your path is determined by your main goal
Nowadays, you need to be clear with your goals. And each one will open the doors for you. From there, you will know what you will have to do. It might not be in front of you but it’s available. You will need to search for it and make sure to study and research it well.
I can’t mention the goals types because it could be different. But I can give an example. For example, if you want to build a blogger for affiliate business, That is your goal and there are different things you should know. Such as things to include, content to share and marketing plan. It can be different for people who just want to blog whatever, you know. That is what I mean by goals.
Always pay attention and revise
Things change and if you know a way to success. Here is my tip. Ensure it still the way or else, you will waste your time. Especially, for bloggers which things can change and you don’t know. New updates would occur and you will not know about if you don’t pay attention.
Make sure to go over your plans, tasks, and everything you do. And try to keep it up to date and the way to go. It will help you to reach your goal. I learned this also the hard way and I regret not doing it every day. Because you waste time and you don’t even know it.

When I first started blogging, I didn’t know I was going to love it this much. Even in the midst of the cost of lining crisis, people are cutting down their expenses, but there’s no way I will ever take down my blog. What I love the most about blogging is that you get to make it your own.
