This is an important question to stop and ask as a blogger. Many of us start out with the best intentions, promises and dreams of the pie in the sky. These things change. We find out its hard work, dedication and perseverance. Reflecting on your goals as a blogger, have they changed since you began blogging? This is a terrific question many bloggers to ask themselves.
Asking this question is a wonderful way to review your blog and its contents since you began blogging. It is certainly something that is worth asking yourself to determine if you are still on task.
Many bloggers generally get involved in blogging for revenue or income. There are those bloggers that are the “true believers’ and blog for themselves only. The reality of most of our economic situations is we need and want the revenue that can come from blogging.
Along with the revenue that comes along with blogging, we also blog to get great quality content out to our readers and blogging communities. We blog because of the enjoyment we receive when we provide relevant content on what is happening in our niche. More than anything else, we blog because we love to write. Are these still your blogging goals that led you to blog?
As bloggers we can sometimes become side tracked. We are deterred from the main course by the all mighty dollar. Blogging can be expensive if you allow it to be. There can be several costs involved with blogging such professional website or blog designs, advertisement and promotion of your blog as well as writing content for your blog. All of these can be done by the blog master him/herself or you can locate a web source to do all of these for you at a monetary cost.
