Disillusions of Blogging Nobody Talks About

Last Update: October 14, 2017

First off I like to say I love blogging, I enjoyed when people leave comments saying the at they enjoyed reading the post. I love that fact that many say I'm very productive in creating good content for my website.

People tell they like all my writing material and wonder how I come up with so many ideas. This is all good news to me, but deep down inside, I wonder why they can't see the sweet and grind it takes to achieve it.

Why can't they see the struggles that come with blogging?

If you ever had that feeling of disillusion, or you are currently experiencing disillusion keep reading this post.

There are times when things get disillusions, there are times when things are hard and frustrating. I believe this is a subject that most bloggers don't take about. Even though things are going good, and your team is getting bigger, your getting more people to subscribe to your list.

On the flip side, there are times when you can getting nothing accomplished. You just can't get thing flowing.

I'm writing you to let you know that you're not alone.....

We like to mention all the positive things about blogging, but perhaps it a good thing to address some of the darker sides of what we go through on a daily basis. So no matter when you're currently going through in your business. Understand you're not alone...

I wanted to mention a few things bloggers don't like talking about.

Creating content is one of the hardest as a blogger. There are times when everything seems to flow smoothly. Then there are times when you sitting there staring at your computer wondering what content to write about next. You sit there trying to figure out how can I create something better than the last guy.

Wondering how can I get people to buy my products instead of going to my competition.

Disillusion of creating content that many people don't see or talk about. Where you struggle to get the writing flow going from day to day. Continually fighting off distractions to make your day more productive. It gets hard times to be truthful. There are days when everything going well and there are days when they don't.

Just remember creating good content takes time.

Procrastination this is another disillusion of blogging that blogger doesn't like to talk about. We tend to put off things until the next week or month. This only leads to not getting things done. Many professionals say this is a sign of fear and this could be why you can't finish anything you started.

Perfectionism is on disillusion that blogger doesn't talk about. We all want to perfect in anything we do when it's come to building our businesses. It always that feeling that you could have done better or done a little more. "I could have written a little more, added a video, add more images or gave it a little more detail description.

Although this should drive you to make your business better.

Trying your best to be perfect, can cause you not to publish anything at all. It can hinder the progress of achieving the task at hand. Because you thinking too much about how you can make it better.

Have that feeling of doing more is a good thing only if you release what you create to the world. Hit the publish button you can always come back and tweak it.

Although these are just a few mention, but there are other topic that need to be discuss.

What is disillusion of blogging that you like the mention?

So far, as a recent affiliate (less than one month) I only have illusions, but I understand what you are talking about. So many things keep us from reaching our dreams.
One thing I've learned long ago:
"Today is the future you were so afraid of in the past" It's not so bad, is it? Opportunities are passing by, don't let them go!
Thanks for your post Anthony.
Eugenio.

Writing every day is the hardest goal to accomplish. At the same time, it is probably the most important. Content is what draws traffic to our web sites!

Thanks for sharing, Anthony!

Hi Anthony, I think that coming up with related ideas for new posts that I know something about, and will help the reader in some way is my biggest challenge. Then, of course, optimizing for SEO can take some work too. Overall though, I enjoy blogging immensely. Tom

Really enjoyed your post, Anthony, I guess that many of us had no idea that we would come to enjoy writing, even to the point where doubt falls away and we can accept that our written words can become a source of income.

The thing that is so good about WA is that you get the sense that we all of us go through the same process, that realization can be game-changing. We probably don't talk about it that much.

I seem to be fielding a lot of questions around that self-doubt that newer folks have and how they struggle to write or to believe in their ability to write if we don't overcome that hurdle it can become a show stopper. Looking at the turnover it could be the major factor in folks terminating their online careers.

Thanks for this. I have experienced this, too. There is a profound difference between perfectionism and excellence. It is this: Excellence is achievable.

My procrastination comes, sometimes, from my inability to catch a full breath from time to time. It also comes from my grandchildren stopping in to play with my wife and myself. It usually does not come from not having something to write.

I know many people have problems, all of the time, thinking of what they should write.

I respectfully suggest that if you actually have run out of things to write about, you probably need to just do a little more research into your niche.

Your disillusion in blogging may simply come from a lack of knowledge and/or passion about your subject.

Sometimes I feel like I'm going nowhere with my blogging. I keep creating content after content and I feel like it's going nowhere.

To get out of this rut, I keep learning new things about blogging and SEO. I see changes now and that's how I keep going.

Being perfect is only a perception! If I tried to be perfect every time, well then, I might as well quit right now. It is that slight margin of imperfection that keeps me coming back and trying harder. When that is achieved, set the bar a little bit higher so that you are always reaching forward.

We all get writers block, so, go take a long walk, be with friends, just do something else to take your mind off of writing. It will all come to you when your brain has sorted it out and then, the flow will begin again!
