Bloggers, yeah – you and me. We tend to solve problems.
When I joined the web I realized the web is different kind of medium – nobody reads online. People online look for information.
Many articles solve problems.
My articles don’t inform, don’t educate, don’t solve any problems and sure don’t entertain – why would people read this kind of blog?
Everybody has fans, the problem – there’s not enough of them.
If everybody had enough of fans, literally everybody would be famous.
But being famous online – forget about it.
I was famous, fame faded and that’s it.
My fame lasted 15 minutes. I got a lot of messages, some people even wanted to film me with professional gear – I said – no!
That’s it, my life didn’t change. I was miserable as I am now.
I even had 700 Youtube subscribers in one day, but I ended up deleting the channel. Nobody understands my jokes. 🙂
On blogs people solve problems such as… how long to cook a pizza… or how to switch RAMs in Chromebook…
People rarely want to connect with other people.
Sure I have readers, but that’s not enough to get a lot of donations.
Few days ago I was wondering should I continue to blog, seems like my writing effort goes to waste. I took a break.
Now I’m okay.
I will write.
Nobody likes casual blogs anymore. People search Google, just because they want to know something new and useful.
Blogging officially has died.
But blogging has one great benefit, nobody can ban you from your space. In Facebook you can get banned if you’ll do some hate speech.
This world is full of haters, people hate each other for no fucking reason.
Blogging isn’t a solid method to make money, in fact blogging is one of the worst ways to make money unless you write reviews, or how to articles, but if you’re like me – you want to connect, you’ll never see a dollar.
Forget about earning with your blog.
Forget getting thousands of visitors.
Forget about fame, riches, women, sex and everything else.
Typical blogs get 10 to 100 visitors per day.
I know a blogger, he’s Lithuanian. He writes from 2005, it’s almost 15 years. And all he has is 300 visits per day. He writes in Lithuanian the longest. 🙂
So length of blogging doesn’t equally mean you’ll get any traffic.
You can write for years – sure people will read your blog, but with 300 per day, you won’t get any sales and as far as I know, this guy doesn’t earn from his blog. In fact none of the Lithuanian writers earn with their blog.
It’s better to write in English language, sure the competition is bigger, and the reward is bigger. More visitors come to your blog.
How many visits will I get after 15 years of writing? I bet 300 hits. 🙂
There’s another problem, people don’t want to donate money. My banner is a joke. I haven’t got any money.
The only reason to write a blog, is to write if you like it. If you hate blogging don’t do it, because you won’t get any money out of it.
Blogging isn’t a career. It’s a hobby that sucks cash slowly. 🙂
As I told, this blog post won’t solve your problems, but it will let you connect with me.
