If you were to bet a blog would make it, chances are you’d lose.
The life of most blogs is short. Some claim 95% of blogs fail.
If the only reason someone starts a blog is to make money online, I can understand why they quickly give up.
But, aside from making money with a blog, it makes me wonder why bloggers not only decide to start a blog, but what inspires them to continue when the failure rate is so high.
Like many others, one of the reasons I started blogging was to *hopefully* make a passive income. After experimenting with several advertising platforms, I quickly realized a blog wasn’t a venue I could get rich with.
But by that time, I was enjoying all of the elements of blogging, so I just kept posting.
Traffic built s-l-o-w-l-y, as did comments.
In the process, what happened was, you, my fellow bloggers, let me know I wasn’t alone in how I felt about blogging and blogging issues.
I felt validated. Inspired to continue on.
The odds weren’t in my favor, but I have your support*.
That, is what keeps me going.
What about you?
Why did you start blogging?
With such a high failure rate of blogs, what keeps you going?
