Reasons Why Most Blogs Fail
There have been many blogs that I read and enjoyed, but sadly a lot of them failed and went offline. I'm sure there was a blog you used to enjoy, but it's now offline. People are starting blogs every day, but most of them don't make it far. What are the reasons for so many blogs failing? It's simple. 1. The Owner Had No Time Many people are trying to start a blog when they already have their hands full. It doesn't help that so many bloggers are claiming it to be so easy! Managing a blog can take a lot of time when you're first starting out. Writing, researching, and search engine optimization can take hours upon hours. This can become stressful to a lot of people, especially those who are already working a full-time job. So, a lot of people just end up closing their blog from the time consumption and stress. 2. Owner Lacked The Knowledge for New Content Many people start writing about a topic that they have very little knowledge about just because it is popular and they see the potential to earn money. They don't realize that they will have to keep a steady flow of content to actually get traffic and earn that revenue. People run through their basic knowledge of a subject pretty quickly, and aren't willing to do the research to learn more. So, usually the person ends up neglecting the blog and ultimately closing it. 3. Owner Didn't Earn What They Expected Most of us bloggers like to display our adsense, and our affiliate earnings. While a lot of us talk about the hard work that went into getting those earnings, it seems most people just see the numbers. Many people start a blog thinking they're going to make some big bucks, but don't realize that might take a long time. Starting a blog thinking you're are going to make a killing is the wrong way to start. It usually ends up with the person closing the blog, because it wasn't earning as much as they thought it would. You can make money blogging, but don't go in thinking you are going to be making bank in no time.
