3 Things To Remember When You Feel Like Giving Up On Your Blog.

Maintaining your blog is probably one of the hardest things to do ever. Unless you are a blogger yourself, I don’t think anyone would understand how time consuming and how much hard work it takes to run a website. You do have other commitments & responsibilities along with your blog and if you decide to prioritise your blog that means you are sacrificing another thing whether it’s your social life, free time, etc.

Thinking about deleting your blog is completely normal if you don’t have time to publish any blog posts or if you don’t notice any difference in terms of growth. We all have been there but personally, I wouldn’t recommend deleting your blog for multiple reasons. If you don’t want to blog anymore, that’s completely fine but don’t delete it. You never know what the future holds, in case you want to blog again – having an already established platform will help you grow back your audience as opposed to starting everything from scratch again.

You can even take a hiatus because at the end of the day, your mental & physical health as well as your responsibilities are the things you need to prioritise and your blog will always come after them. However, if you feel like giving up on your blog for different reasons then please don’t. In today’s post, I wanted to share with you 5 things you need to remember if you ever feel like giving up on blogging.

La maintenance de votre blog est probablement l’une des choses les plus difficiles à faire. À moins que vous ne soyez un blogueur, je ne pense pas que quiconque comprendrait combien de temps et combien de travail il faut pour gérer un site Web. Vous avez d’autres engagements et responsabilités avec votre blog et si vous décidez de donner la priorité à votre blog, cela signifie que vous sacrifiez autre chose que ce soit votre vie sociale, votre temps libre, etc.

Penser à supprimer votre blog est tout à fait normal si vous n’avez pas le temps de publier des articles de blog ou si vous ne remarquez aucune différence en termes de croissance. Nous avons tous été là-bas, mais personnellement, je ne recommanderais pas de supprimer votre blog pour plusieurs raisons. Si vous ne voulez plus bloguer, c’est pas grave, mais ne le supprimez pas. Vous ne savez jamais ce que l’avenir nous réserve, au cas où vous voudriez à nouveau bloguer – avoir une plate-forme déjà établie vous aidera à faire croître votre public au lieu de tout recommencer à zéro.

Vous pouvez même faire une pause car à la fin de la journée, votre santé mentale et physique ainsi que vos responsabilités sont les choses que vous devez prioriser et votre blog viendra toujours après elles. Cependant, si vous avez envie d’abandonner votre blog pour différentes raisons, ne le faites pas. Dans l’article d’aujourd’hui, je voulais partager avec vous 5 choses dont vous devez vous souvenir si jamais vous avez envie d’abandonner votre blog.

YOUR TRAFFIC CAN LITERALLY SKYROCKET ANY DAY

If you don’t see a difference in terms of growth, it can definitely feel disheartening. You won’t really see a point working on your blog since it doesn’t make a difference especially when other bloggers who have started blogging after you, are already able to gain thousands of followers and generate a lot of traffic. Well, one of the best and amazing things about blogging is you never know what will happen tomorrow.

It only takes a click for your traffic to skyrocket and it can happen any day, it can happen tomorrow, next week, next month or even next year but if you are working hard on your blog – it will definitely happen. My first year of blogging was non-existent, I saw a spike of growth the next year but it wasn’t anything drastic and it was only during my third year that my stats boomed. If I had given up on my blog after my first year or even at the beginning of my third year, I wouldn’t be where I am today.

The process of gaining followers or traffic isn’t as easy as it seems like. If I have to be blunt, the reason why some people choose to steal, imitate or copy another blogger’s content is because they aren’t able to grow their blogs and by plagiarising, it’s way quicker and easier to grow it. But obviously that comes with a lot of issues. Not only your credibility as a blogger will be questioned but you will also face serious repercussions which aren’t worth it at the end.

Implementing strategies will help you generate traffic and potentially grow your audience. Those things take a lot of time to work and you won’t notice a difference overnight. Just because one blogger was able to grow their blog within a month does not mean every blogger would be able to grow their blogs within that timeframe. Every blog is different and you will have to change & adapt your strategy according to your content and audience.

Si vous ne voyez pas de différence en termes de croissance, cela peut certainement être décourageant. Vous ne verrez pas vraiment l’intérêt de travailler sur votre blog car cela ne fait aucune différence, surtout lorsque d’autres blogueurs qui ont commencé à bloguer après vous, sont déjà en mesure de gagner des milliers d’abonnés et de générer beaucoup de trafic. Eh bien, l’une des meilleures et des plus étonnantes choses à propos des blogs est que vous ne savez jamais ce qui se passera demain.

Il suffit d’un clic pour que votre trafic monte en flèche et cela peut arriver n’importe quel jour, cela peut arriver demain, la semaine prochaine, le mois prochain ou même l’année prochaine, mais si vous travaillez dur sur votre blog, cela se produira certainement. Ma première année de blogging était inexistante, j’ai vu un pic de croissance l’année suivante mais ce n’était rien de drastique et ce n’est que pendant ma troisième année que mes statistiques ont explosé. Si j’avais abandonné mon blog après ma première année ou même au début de ma troisième année, je ne serais pas où je suis aujourd’hui.

Le processus pour gagner des abonnés ou du trafic n’est pas aussi simple qu’il y paraît. Si je dois être franc, la raison pour laquelle certaines personnes choisissent de voler, d’imiter ou de copier le contenu d’un autre blogueur est parce qu’elles ne sont pas capables de développer leurs blogs et en plagiant, c’est beaucoup plus rapide et plus facile. Mais évidemment, cela pose de nombreux problèmes. Non seulement votre crédibilité en tant que blogueur sera remise en question, mais vous serez également confronté à de graves répercussions qui n’en valent pas la peine à la fin.

La mise en œuvre de stratégies vous aidera à générer du trafic et potentiellement à développer votre audience. Ces choses prennent beaucoup de temps à fonctionner et vous ne remarquerez pas de différence du jour au lendemain. Ce n’est pas parce qu’un blogueur a pu développer son blog en un mois que tous les blogueurs seraient en mesure de développer leur blog dans ce plage de temps. Chaque blog est différent et vous devrez changer & adapter votre stratégie en fonction de votre contenu et de votre public.

YOU HAVE THE POSSIBILITY TO EARN MONEY FROM YOUR BLOG

I don’t think any blogger starts a blog in the intention of earning money from it and if they do, they won’t be able to succeed in the long run as running a blog takes a lot of effort and work. There is nothing wrong wanting to monetise your blog or even turn your blog into a career but if your sole goal is to earn money then you will be very disappointed. If you are passionate about your blog but are disheartened about the fact you aren’t able to make money from it, remember that not every blogger is able to monetise their platforms.

If it was that easy, everybody would have a blog by now. Being able to make money from one of your hobbies or passions is one of the best and rewarding feelings ever! Even if you aren’t able to make thousands of pounds, you have the possibility to make hundreds. At the end of the day, if you aren’t passionate about your blog regardless whether you are able to monetise it or not – you won’t be able to blog for a long time. That’s a fact.

If you are passionate about your blog then remember that you have the opportunity to monetise it one day and whether or not you decide to go for it, is completely up to you. I don’t want to make it seem like money is an important factor but if you are in a position that you can’t work outside your home then your blog can bring you a lot more opportunities than you could ever imagine. Remember that it will take some time to reach that position but it’s definitely something doable.

Je ne pense pas qu’un blogueur crée un blog dans l’intention de gagner de l’argent et s’il le fait, il ne pourra pas réussir à long terme car la gestion d’un blog demande beaucoup d’efforts et de travail. Il n’y a rien de mal à vouloir monétiser votre blog ou même à transformer votre blog en carrière, mais si votre seul objectif est de gagner de l’argent, vous serez très déçu. Si vous êtes passionné par votre blog mais que vous êtes découragé par le fait que vous ne pouvez pas en tirer de l’argent, rappelez-vous que tous les blogueurs ne sont pas en mesure de monétiser leurs plateformes.

Si c’était aussi simple que ça, tout le monde aurait un blog maintenant. Être capable de gagner de l’argent grâce à l’un de vos passe-temps ou passions est l’un des sentiments les meilleurs et les plus gratifiants de tous les temps! Même si vous ne pouvez pas gagner des milliers de livres, vous avez la possibilité d’en gagners des centaines. En fin de compte, si vous n’êtes pas passionné par votre blog, que vous soyez en mesure de le monétiser ou non, vous ne pourrez pas bloguer pendant longtemps. C’est un fait.

Si vous êtes passionné par votre blog, rappelez-vous que vous avez la possibilité de le monétiser un jour et que vous décidiez ou non de le faire, cela dépend entièrement de vous. Je ne veux pas donner l’impression que l’argent est un facteur important, mais si vous êtes dans une position où vous ne pouvez pas travailler en dehors de chez vous, votre blog peut vous offrir beaucoup plus d’opportunités que vous ne pourriez l’imaginer. N’oubliez pas qu’il faudra un certain temps pour atteindre cette position, mais c’est certainement quelque chose de faisable.

YOU ARE INSPIRING PEOPLE

Last but not least, you never know who reads your blog and who is eagerly waiting to read your next post – your blog might be a source of inspiration to so many people! You might think that nobody is reading your blog or that your content isn’t helpful but it could be inspiring many people. Not every reader leaves a comment or even likes a blog post, most of the times people who read your blog posts are silent readers.

They will read your content but won’t engage therefore you might feel like nobody is reading your content but people are actually reading your blog. When you see one view in your stats, that view comes from a person. Be proud of all your milestones, no matter how big or small they are! You should always be proud of the platform you have created, if you aren’t then who else will?

Enfin, vous ne savez jamais qui lit votre blog et qui attend avec impatience de lire votre prochain article – votre blog pourrait être une source d’inspiration pour tant de gens! Vous pourriez penser que personne ne lit votre blog ou que votre contenu n’est pas utile, mais cela pourrait inspirer beaucoup de gens. Tous les lecteurs ne laissent pas de commentaire ou n’aiment même pas un article de blog, la plupart du temps, les personnes qui lisent vos articles de blog sont des lecteurs silencieux.

Ils liront votre contenu mais ne s’engageront pas, vous aurez peut-être l’impression que personne ne lit votre contenu mais les gens lisent votre blog. Lorsque vous voyez une vue dans vos statistiques, cette vue provient d’une personne. Soyez fier de tous vos jalons, qu’ils soient grands ou petits! Vous devriez toujours être fier de la plateforme que vous avez créée, si vous ne l’êtes pas, qui d’autre le sera?

Thank you so much for reading! – xo N

  1. Thank you so much for posting this. I literally today just posted my first blog post in 7 long months because of my marriage breakdown. I neglected blogging because of the trauma and devastation of the situation and my mental health issues. Today I got back into it and I am so glad I didn’t delete anything here on WordPress. Thank you for validating and honouring that times canbe tough and it’s perfectly ok to take a breather. Much love. Sammi xx ❤️

    1. I try to interject humor to my blog, but my issue is usually length. I have an idea that I think would be awesome for post but once I write it I think “who would want to read that much about me?” Often I take out the first or second paragraph thinking that nobody needs that much background. I’m still working on not doing that… work in progress.

  2. Thanks for this post. It’s a nice reminder because sometimes I feel discouraged from blogging. I love it but growing it can feel kind of slow

  3. Once again Lune, another masterpiece, I love reading your blog it encourages me. I enjoy reading it so much that I believe many others out there will love to read it too, so sometimes I will reblog your blog so others can be blessed by it, but of course learning as a new blogger I make sure the writers get the credit since after all it’s there masterpiece❣️. I refer the reader to follow the original blog, which I in my opinion believe it is a great piece worth reading. It blessed me and it might bless the readers.

    You touch on some very important points because I have many interests, experiences but I don’t know what to write about sometimes.
    I felt like maybe just letting go of my blog even though my heart doesn’t want to. My busy life and health issues make it challenging. I originally started my blog for personal reasons with the intention of maybe expanding. I will write about this on my next blog so that I can get everyone’s opinion and ideas, but you will need to know my conditions and dilemma to be able to advise me better. I really need the help and advice. This writing came at the right time when I truly needed it, thanks Lune, xo

  4. Very lovely and motivating post! I think anyone wanting to blog for a living should definitely understand that motivation for enjoying must come from yourself, and the content should come from the heart too. Thank you for this!

  5. I agree with all these reasons – blogging should really be born out of passion, but its great if that passion aligns with “traditional” metrics of success like views or money. However, it is important to def never lose sight of why we start!

  6. Thank you dear, I absolutely loved that you mentionned that we are all inspiring people. It can be hard to see as we do not always have loads of comments saying it but there are lots of readers who never comment but get inspiration from us quite often. It was very cool to read your views on the topic!

  7. In Monty Python’s “Holy Grail”, there is a running gag of mixing up the # 3 with the #5 (for example, in the “Holy Hand Grenade” scene [or whatever it’s called], they read the instructions and it involves counting to 3 (NOT 5) … of course — well in case you haven’t seen the movie yet: DEFINITELY watch it! 😀

    I have a *question* for you: HOW MANY THINGS?
    😉

  8. Love this! As I’m a new blogger, I haven’t reached the point of wanting to give up yet but these are very helpful pieces of encouragement.

  9. I always find your posts engaging and enjoyable! You’re so right honestly. At the start of my blogging journey, I was ten and posting about gaming. I was over the moon when I received my first follower but my content didn’t take off. I had to first rebrand and then received a shoutout from a bigger blogger- I am so grateful to this day because that exposure helped me immensely!

  10. What a great post! I’ve definitely taken long breaks from my blog before, but I don’t think I’d ever have the heart to delete it permanently. The point about your stats sky rocketing any day is so true, you truly don’t know who is going to come across it and when xx

  11. Loved reading this. I totally agree, do t give up as any blog will still sit their gaining views via Google, even if you don’t have time to post regularly.
    I plan to give my blog a bit of a facelift for the new year and start posting more often again. You’re right though, it’s definitely a slow burner. Fab post. x

  12. Thanks for this. One thought I had is that there’s nothing worse than clicking on a broken link to an article of interest. I would definitely prefer to see blogs left in situ, even if there is a hiatus in content or enthusiasm. You never know, inspiration may, and probably will, strike again. 💗
