What Really Causes Blogging Failure?
This is one post which ought to have being published on Monday. Ask me what happened? Narrating what happened will of course prolong this post unnecessarily Let’s move on now and forget the past. 555.
You might probably be wondering why ’555′. Okay, I discovered something amazing during this week and it was really astonishing and fun. The word ‘Ha’ means ’5′ in Thai language. So obviously ’555′ will be ‘Hahaha’. I guess my Thailand brothers will attest to to that!
So you see my point behind my ’555′? That’s of course my laughter, HAHAHA! Let me quit all of these and move back to business as usual.
The word, blogging has now taken a new different dimension with every Tom, Dick and Harry involved. I’m of course of no exception and I believe you reading this post is as well a blogger. Or am I lying? Because the title of this post bluntly state, what causes blogging failure? You wouldn’t be interested if you weren’t a blogger.
As I said earlier, blogging has of course taken a new dimension with so many unconfirmed results stating that more than 70 plus domains are bought every minute. Yes, I mean every 60 seconds! Imagine that!
That’s an average of 1 domain per second. Multiply that by 3600 seconds which makes 24 hours and you’ll be amazed at the outcome. So roughly, more than 3ooo blogs are created within a day. Let’s just take it that way.
I guess you aren’t of course here for any sort of mathematical statistics which at the end will make our head to spin but rather, to look what really causes blogging failure?
Please don’t get me twisted. I’m not in any way trying to impose myself on you as the new ‘Blogging Messiah’ but rather to share what I’ve learnt through this journey of blogging.
But before we do proceed further, let us look what generally is called a blog?
These are generally what some the Methuselahs of blogging has to say. I call them ‘Methuselahs’ because they have being of course blogging since the days of Adam. Hahaa, for a very long time.
A weblog is a hierarchy of text, images, media objects and data, arranged chronologically, that can be viewed in an HTML browser.’-Dave Winer-Harvard University
‘A frequent, chronological publication of personal thoughts and Web links.’
‘From “Web log.” A blog is basically a journal that is available on the web. The activity of updating a blog is “blogging” and someone who keeps a blog is a “blogger.”
‘A weblog is kind of a continual tour, with a human guide who you get to know. There are many guides to choose from, each develops an audience, and there’s also comraderie and politics between the people who run weblogs, they point to each other, in all kinds of structures, graphs, loops, etc.’
‘A blog is basically a journal that is available on the web. The activity of updating a blog is “blogging” and someone who keeps a blog is a “blogger.” Blogs are typically updated daily using software that allows people with little or no technical background to update and maintain the blog. Postings on a blog are almost always arranged in cronological order with the most recent additions featured most prominantly.’ -matisse.net
‘A blog is a website in which items are posted on a regular basis and displayed in reverse chronological order. The term blog is a shortened form of weblog or web log. Authoring a blog, maintaining a blog or adding an article to an existing blog is called “blogging”. Individual articles on a blog are called “blog posts,” “posts” or “entries”. A person who posts these entries is called a “blogger”. A blog comprises text, hypertext, images, and links (to other web pages and to video, audio and other files). Blogs use a conversational style of documentation. Often blogs focus on a particular “area of interest”, such as Washington, D.C.’s political goings-on. Some blogs discuss personal experiences.’ -Wikipedia
Confused? That’s what Darren of problogger.net wants to know. Don’t be – its really quite simple. To put it as simply as possible – a blog is a type of website that is usually arranged in chronological order from the most recent ‘post’ (or entry) at the top of the main page to the older entries towards the bottom.- Darren Rowse of problogger.net
So if all, all that seemed to a blog is about the expression of one’s own feeling,then what causes blogging failure. Many people have their own reasons as to what causes blogging failure. Spamming from poor design of one’s blog to all sorts of reasons.
Yes, having a poor design can cause blogging failure and there is no doubt about that. Please bear with me, I’m not in anyway trying to claim Mr.All Knowing. Hahaha, many are intelligent than me.
So what causes blogging failure according to Emmanuel Kabenlah Cudjoe
To me, what causes blogging failure is that moment when you feel you’re not good enough. When you feel your writing sucks and that every other person is better than you. The difference between a ‘pro’ blogger and a ‘failed’ blogger is simple, probloggers hit the ‘publish’ button regardless of their feelings whiles failed bloggers are always reluctant.
