Blogging can become really frustrating when it isn't turning out the results you wanted. It is really easy to start blogging but it takes extra to keep it running and carve a niche in the blogging world. Staying consistent is actually the key to earn well and retain audience because people love fresh post
One sure way to be consistent is by writing on topics you enjoy or excites you. When it is about things that interest you, you will feel motivated to write and put more effort into it. Unlike writing something you have no idea on, of course you won't feel inclined to write. And when you are not consistent you would be losing people's attention.
By posting consistently about topics you enjoy , not only would you be building a fan base but you would be carving a niche for yourself as well and this could open doors of opportunities for you. If you post once in a blue moon, people won't know when to come back for more and ultimately you'll lose their attention.
Another way to be consistent is by setting blogging goals. This will help you to be more focused as well as prioritize blogging. By making goals, you know where you want your blog to be in the next 6 months or one year and you'll make plans to get there. When a plan is in place, it's important that you are professional and follow it up with action.
By making plans you won't be waiting until dying minutes to start racking your brain for ideas, not only will this frustrate you but kill your vibe entirely. It's important that you plan your blogging calendar, when you will write and when you will post them. You can create schedules to help you plan your blogging activities better as well. By doing this you can monitor your progress as well as know where to put more effort.
Keeping a journal handy will also help you stay consistent. Often times ideas pop up and it's important that you write them as soon as possible because you may never remember them again. With a journal full of ideas you'll have more ideas to work on as well as more articles to release on your blog.
Eliminating distractions will also help you be consistent. If you keep getting distracted by things around you, writing will become difficult and so consistency as well. If social media is a source of distraction for you, you can take a break from it. If it's your family you can take a trip to a library to get your work done. You know what your distractions are and so it's important that you take steps to eliminate them so you can be consistent with blogging.
