Blogging is not that much easy which you are thinking. I have been in this field since last two years. One thing which I have experienced is that if you want to become a professional Blogger, then you must have the hard working ability.
If you read some popular blog, then you just see the income and traffic report of that blog. I would suggest you, instead of looking at income report you would see the hard work which makes that blog reach that milestone.
Some people just see the revenue report, and they want to start their blog. Even they don’t know what they are doing, and they are not aware of blogging. After few months once they realize that they are not getting enough traffic to blog then they quit which is the end of the blogging. What makes them leave the blogging? Are they not capable of doing this?
Here I am telling you some points which you should remember before starting your blogging journey. I will explain some skills of the professional bloggers which makes them ProBlogger.
Find out your interest
This is the first thing which comes to my mind when people quit their blogging. Some people are not interested in blogging still they choose to blog as career platform. Apparently, in future, they will stop their blog. Some people have excellent writing skill, but they don’t know where we can use it.
I would suggest you few things here If you like blogging then only go for it otherwise it’s just waste of time. Don’t just copy others if others are doing blogging it means you can also do it that myth. Its varies from passion to passion, skills to skill.
People interested in blogging but they just choose the niche which they are not aware. They just write the content because other people are writing it. In future, what will happen they will not involve in writing a post of current niche. I made the same mistake, so I will warn you don’t make the same error.
Starting a blog is not a big deal but to continue it without any barriers is hard. Some bloggers start their blog, but they are unable to update it regularly because of some constraints. If you want to make a career in blogging, then you must be consistent. I would suggest you write one post daily. If you see the popular blogs, they are always updating their old post and publish the new post as well.

ProBlogger doesn’t quit blogging at any cost because they know that they can make it. I have seen some famous bloggers, and they work 10-12 hours in a day. If you have confidence in what you are doing, then no one can stop you other than you. People will talk you some things but take it which are beneficial for you.
This is the must quality which you have before entering into the blogging field. I have read somewhere that you can change the world with your writing. I think you know the power of media they can change everything with a single article. Same here if you write a content it will be visible to the world. By your writing, you can reach to the world.
Some ProBlogger hire quality writers for their blog to make their content useful. Apparently, if your content is good, then only people will read your articles. Hiring a writer is the next step, but before that, I would suggest you write some articles on your own so that you will also get experience.
This is not a mandatory skill for blogging, but if you want to customize your blog as per your requirements, then you must have it. If I want to customize my blog, then simply I hire a developer from Fiverr just for $5. Frankly speaking, I don’t have coding knowledge, and I just update the content only.
If you have an excellent coding knowledge, then you can take a WordPress project, and you will earn enough money from it. If you sign up for Fiverr, you can show you the expertise to make money.
What if you have a full-time job and You want to do blogging
This is a very toughest question which I heard from some bloggers. Before answering this question, I would like to say that don’t quit your full-time job unless you are not sure about blogging profession.
If you think that your blog will earn more money than your full-time job still I suggest you don’t quit your job. Do blogging for some month see the results, and I am sure it will take at least one year to earn more money than your full-time job.
Analyze the earning reports every month and when your earning will be constant then only go for blogging profession.
Quitting a full-time job before creating the blog is a just bullshit decision. Some people have more confident about their expertise, and even they succeed.
The time required for all things. Some people are very busy in their life as they don’t get much time. I would say that blogging is not for those individuals who are always busy in their personal or corporate work. You need at least 3 hours a day to make your blog capable of being your profession.
Time is money don’t waste it
Patience to become success
Blogging is not a one day process, not an even month. We need to work years to get success even more than that. We must have that much patience to bear ups and downs. The people who know well that they will have success one day they don’t quit blogging under any circumstances.
More you wait more you get better.
If you read more, then your knowledge will increase, and you will think different than what others are thinking about writing content on your blog. More you write different content on your blog more you get visitors. People wants to read various content which is not available easily.
I have sorted out above the quality of popular bloggers by my experience. I have made some mistake which I don’t want to do it. If possible, try to acquire skill and make your blog as attractive as Professional Blogger. The intention to write this post is to realize you that at what points you are lacking.
