Top 5 Genuine Struggles of a New Blogger
It has been one week since I started blogging and I’ve struggled with few things.
- Having no clue on where to start
I had no clue on how should I start my blog but I did it anyway and wrote something every day and stuck to the routine that I’ve set out for myself
2. Trying to discover my personal niche
I started to do some research about blogs and learned that bloggers usually decide on a niche and write about what they think about the niche. It could be art, cooking recipes, productivity tips, etc. In my case, I’m yet to find what I want to share with my audience.
3. Failed to Plan ahead
I started to realize that I need to plan and gather material ahead to write a good blog post that will add value to an audience who can learn from what I want to share.
4. Failed to schedule a time to do focused work
I really want to improve my time management skills. We are in the middle of a pandemic and it is easy to get distracted because we are staying at home most of the time. Having a set time to do only one task can help us make progress with our desired goals. If I don’t have a schedule I realized I’ll end up skipping the habit of writing a blog and I’ll fail. I do not want to give up. I told myself “You are writing this blog for you, not for anybody else so get your shit sorted”
5. Lack of operational process
I currently do not have a sequence of steps that I would follow to do a particular task. I discovered that having a content calendar to track my progress can really help me improve my productivity and mental peace.
