Many of us have read we can have some kind of success with blogging.
Maybe it will be a book deal.
Maybe it’s the fact money can be made with a blog.
For some, just being able to share their knowledge is enough
For others, success is measured differently.
Some won’t quit until they see their name “in lights”, whereas others wait until their blog propels them into a business and/or leads to financial freedom.
But, what happens when what we read can happen, isn’t happening?
How long do we wait?
Before I started blogging, I analyzed what the “big boys/girls” were doing and how long it took them and their blogs to begin to make a (big) difference.
Two years seemed to be the “magic” number.
In fact, when I interviewed Darren Rowse of Problogger, he verified that by saying,
It’s all about looking for signs of growth and engagement – not just traffic. You should start to see these (even if they are just very small signs) from the first few months.
For a blog to reach its potential though, you need to give it considerable time. It takes a couple of years to get to its potential.
Depending on how we look at it, two years can seem like a long time. That’s 730 days, 17,520 hours, over a million minutes…..
Is it worth the wait?
Or is it time to say, “Enough!”
What say you?
How long have you been blogging?
Thus far, are you happy with where your blog has taken you?
What would make you quit?
If quitting isn’t in your thoughts, what keeps you going?
