Blogging is Just Not For Me and That's Why I'm Quitting
"Blogging is not for me"
"I don't know how to write"
"I don't have time for this"
The excuses as to why someone is not making it in the online world is getting really old and I figured a nice little post will help some of you break out of this wrong mindset.
Just like a lot of you, I didn't intend on starting a blog and I never even thought I'd be writing as I know for a fact that my content was beyond horrible in my early days.
Did that stop me?
Of course not.
The thing about this whole blogging thing is that you can actually make money and not just money, but a lot of it.
So if someone told me that I can make money doing it, why wouldn't I at the very least give it a try.
With just 3 short years I have made more money than any job I've ever held, to include a bar business that I once had 4 years ago.
So thank you WA for allowing me to spend more time with my family and for all the nice little perks that come with being an online entrepreneur.
I know it wasn't easy, but with a little help from the community here (in 2014), I managed to beat the odds and actually make a living on the internet.
I was told it wasn't going to happen overnight and that it was going to take time before I even made $1 but I knew this stuff actually worked.
Understanding How This whole Online thing Works is Not as Easy as it Sounds
I completely understand that a lot of you don't get how this whole online thing works but don't worry, we all were in your shoes at one point of our online careers.
Now if you can understand a couple of things, you might look at things a lot differently, especially if you're thinking about quitting.
- You will not make money right away and it might not even come in 6 months
- It takes persistence and patience
- As long as you are WORKING at it, you will see results
Those were the things I was told when I first started and I figured that even if it took me 2 years to make over $3k a month, I would do it.
My job wouldn't do that, even if I worked there for 10 years.
Of course it shouldn't take that long, but if I could make that in less than 5 years knowing that you will increase your income along the way, there is nothing that will hold me back from giving it my all.
Let's see...Work 10+ years to get small raises here and there to make $30k/year or put in 3 years into a website and make $50k +?
It's simple math like this that will take you a long way and that is what got me to where I am today.
We All Start Somewhere
Whether you're a pilot or a gas pump specialist, we all had to start somewhere and I'm sure we didn't know everything about the job.
The same thing applies to this whole affiliate marketing thing.
What makes this different than anything else?
So when someone tells me that they don't know how to write or that this is not for them, all I see are excuses and most especially the wrong mentality.
When I first started, I knew nothing about blogging, creating websites, or even knowing that making money online was even possible.
Rather than trying to debate on how I couldn't do it, I listened to what I was told and never looked back.
In less than two years of working on my online business, I was able to make a solid income and eventually work from home full-time.
I now do this for a living and I am living proof that the training and everything else that WA has to offer is beyond worth it.
Quit Making Excuses
If you have a website and you are adding content to it, don't stop what you're doing regardless if you're seeing any type of results.
Whether it's month 6 or month 3, there is no reason why any of you should stop working on your site.
Remember that you're building a business and all businesses take time to grow.
Continue adding content and don't ever stop until you make that first $1.
The worst thing you could do is add 1 post a month trying to say that you don't have time for your site.
Not blogging is like saying you don't want money.
I don't care who or what you are, there is no reason why you can't make money online.
Get your mind in the game and put in the work that is needed, just like everyone else.
Anyone can make thousands of dollars online as long as you keep your excuse list at 0.
So the next time you feel like quitting, remember that there is no reason as to why you can't make this work.
Okay now stop reading and get to work!
