It’s becoming an age old question a lot of my readers ask me. Why is blogging so popular? I think it’s because it gives people a voice and is a great way to express yourself.
On the other side of the coin blogging has become a way people can actually make an income. But, contrary to what you might think not everyone who starts a blog will become successful and even make any money at it.
Why is that?
Honestly, it’s because people just give up blogging when they don’t see results, plain and simple. And not to pour salt in the wound it’s estimated that 81 percent of people who start a blog quit. I know, not good odds. But, you really have to look at why these people aren’t being successful after a year or two of constant blogging.
One of the main reasons is they pick the wrong niche and aren’t familiar with blogging or marketing that blog. And a lot of the people I hear from say they have been working so darn hard and just can’t make it work.
So, what’s the secret to becoming successful at blogging? Glad you asked!
As popular as blogging is in our world today most fail due to consistency. And to succeed you have to be consistent in not only blogging but in engaging with others and updating your website frequently.
How Can You Benefit From Blogging?
Seeing how popular blogging is, it’s surprising that many don’t bother using it for their businesses or to earn passive income. What are some of the ways you can benefit as a blogger? Check below.
1 If you’re looking to earn some extra cash you too can benefit. There are a number of platforms that cater to those who want to earn money blogging.

Find Your Own Road!
I often tell my readers who message me to follow your own road when it comes to blogging for an income. Reason being is because you want to write about something that interests you and not necessarily what’s popular today. I know that sounds strange but new hottest fads will come and go and you may lose interests if you’re writing about something you don’t really care about. And if you have signed up for my updates I truly want you to succeed!
