[Blogging Mindset] When Nobody is Reading Your Blog

The Art of Blogging

The first few weeks of blogging. You don’t know what you are doing, you do not know the platform, the rules, the principles. And, worst of all, you’re writing into a void.

You’re talking to yourself.

I remember feeling like this. I wasn’t sure if I was on the right path, or if I sucked big time, or if blogging without an audience is the kind of thing they lock you up for.

90% of all bloggers quit during these first few weeks. After all, it is illogical to pursue something if there’s no reward and no sign of progress, right?

Uhm… not quite.

  1. LOL,

    When I started blogging in 2008 I didn’t even know what blogging was. I had just lost my job of 9+ years, endured a relocation to another state, and lost my mom and dad within (6) months of each other.

    I just happened across a blog while surfing one day and I was hooked. To be honest, I became addicted, up all night several nights in a row teaching myself how to blog. Talking about not knowing what you’re doing when You first start, “I was that woman, but I was having a ball.” I started out using WordPress.com, and Blogger, tried a few others along the way but always kept my WordPress and Blogger blogs.

    About a year (I think) into blogging I realized that WordPress.com and WordPress.org were totally different, and in a good way, especially for somebody like me who loves having an ability to be creative, flexible and more innovative with access to plugins. The rest is a history that would take too long to write about in comments. I enjoyed reading your post!

  2. I have blogged in the past and never stuck with it, not for lack of audience but I became unsure what to say and why. I recently started blogging, with a plan an idea of what I want it to turn into. I dont have a lot of time right now so I decided two quality posts a month would be a good start. I start writing my first post tomorrow. I am getting my feet wet with an easy topic but I am more excited about the ideas that follow. I have found the most helpful thing as a beginner to be reading posts of others, posts like this one.

  3. Blogging when no one is reading is like when the tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it. Does it make a sound? I started cartoon blogging two years ago. Twice a week I sit in front of the three empty boxes and suddenly an idea forms. Cartoon blogging keeps my old mind sharp and allows me to sneak in some important issues. Yesterday, I contacted a dad whose son died of an overdose to comment on my cartoon on drugs before it goes out. If the tree falls in the forest and only one person hears it, then it makes a sound.
    Blessings.
