Blogging is a long term journey. It takes time to get real-time success in blogging. Small wins are better for long term goals. It feels awesome to have so many followers and likes and comments on your blog posts. But it requires a lot of hard work and self-esteem. To become successful in blogging, it requires a lot of effort, quality content and producing of contents consistently. When I started blogging and sharing my ideas, I had zero followers with no likes and comments. I’m grateful to everyone, from the very first one to the last one. And to have a thousand followers is a lot. Being grateful is extremely important to become successful in blogging career and even in every field of life. If you don’t come from a place of gratitude then I don’t think people will follow you because there are so many choices out there.
Big wins are eventually the aggregation of small wins and small losses. In between is a matter of how fast we can act and how long we can last. To me “wins” can mean so many things: learning, extending knowledge or network or people or love or relationships, new followers, money, victory, achievement, surpassing personal fear or simply helping someone else achieves something. To me, “loss” could become an irrelevant part because you can easily capitalize on the concept of “loss”. Mistakes or losses are a way to learn and do better.
- Think about your passion and skill. Choose your best niche. Try to collect information from all around the Internet about your selected niche.
- To get a good idea, it will be better to explore different other blogs and collect ideas from there. Explore them and take positive ideas from those blogs.
- Try to produce quality content, and produce it consistently, so your audience grows and engages. Most of them will respond you positively and this will help you boost up your confidence.
- Don’t afraid to take a step forward if you are having nothing in your mind and in your hand. No one is perfect in the world. Every expert was once a beginner. It’s more about just getting started than to start perfectly.
- If you can’t think something insightful, share someone else’s insightful thoughts and add your ideas. There’s really no excuse for not posting at least one post every day, and giving it some sort of value like (social currency).
- Never underestimate small wins. Celebrate each and every follower and likes and comments. It’s good to have small, organic and real connections. Having a single follower often more valuable than a million so relationships.
- I really think you need to put the blinkers and celebrate your small wins. Lots of small wins lead to bigger ones. You must prefer to take a thousand dedicated followers over a million disengaged followers any day.
- You need to be tolerant and consistent. People want overnight success straight away and when they don’t get it they get upset. I celebrate every small win because long term those small wins will lead to the big one eventually.
- Do your best to appreciate your readers and followers. You should learn to appreciate the small wins when you push yourself to do so, your fellow bloggers will also try to do so for you.
- It’s not the quantity of your followers or audience, but the quality. Do not look for the number of followers. Look for the quality of leaders. It’s about the connections, the effects, and the causes.
It doesn’t matter how many followers I have. What counts is how many I may have touched, helped, or inspired, in even the smallest way. I have learned from the experiences that I have encountered on the WordPress Blogging platform and hope someone may have learned from something that I have shared so far. You do not have to be an expert to care about and help others; you just need to be willing to become involved. A little kindness can do so much. We can change the world by helping or inspiring one person at a time.
People forget the feeling of that first view, like, comment, share, etc. They received and crave more and more now. The desire to make a bigger impact on a larger audience is fine, but don’t forget that making just one impact on one person is amazing in itself.
I just want to create something meaningful and sustainable. And I know that I am not the only human with this goal. So, small wins, big wins, any wins and I am taking them. Because Lord knows, I take the Ls too.
