When I first started blogging, my main idea behind blogging was to gather information and keep myself up to date with the info for efficiently making my regular work decisions and to be on top of emerging technologies for professional development. I have subscribed to a number of RSS feeds and I was a regular gold member and reader of number of tech blogs.
While following this habit my passion grew and I started my own blog to share my ideas and information gathered from my day to day work. I was getting around 200 hits a day at that time.
That is when a friend of mine suggested me to try making some money out of my blog. I have tried since then and it took me some time to start earning some amount of money. I would like to add here that first and foremost purpose of this BLOG is still to share accurate info and to help other techies for no cost involved.
Back to making money –
I know its very easy to give up initially and I have experienced this myself. A lot of blogger’s step in the blogging world thinking of making easy bucks. But slowly they began to realize that its not an easy job and requires a lot of hard work and patience, and on top of all a very knowledgeable and a very smart head above your shoulders.
Well I am sharing some of the motivational phrases that I have used for being energetic and motivational all the time. If you are a start up blogger I will suggest you print them out and hang them on a wall somewhere in your home office or behind your computer.
These phrases will always remind you to of the perseverance required for running a successful BLOG. And some of these phrases come from very successful blogger’s who are earning more then six figures. And always remember one thing – Always treat people as people, You will meet Internet personalities and famous people over your life span, but never undermine yourself. And treat all as people you meet everyday.
“Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.”
“Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice; it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.”
“Yesterday’s failures are today’s seeds that must be diligently planted to be able to abundantly harvest tomorrow’s successes.”
“Don’t let the opinions of the average man sway you. Dream, and he thinks you’re crazy. Succeed, and he thinks you’re lucky. Acquire wealth, and he thinks you’re greedy. Pay no attention. He simply doesn’t understand.”
“Never Give Up”
“If you can make something for a little less than your competition, and sell it for a little more, then you’re doing OK.”
“Choose to blog about something that you can see yourself still blogging about in 3-4 years – it takes that long to build a successful blog.”
“You have to earn their trust, before you can make a successful sale.”
“you are enough”. You are enough to become a millionaire, you are enough to have an attractive partner, you are enough to fulfill your dreams. You don’t need to keep adding things to yourself, you need to take away the things that hold you back such as doubt, fear and limiting beliefs. You are enough to do [insert anything here].
“Follow your passion”
“Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase. Just take the first step.”
