Why did you start blogging?
Has it been so long that you can’t even remember?
Or maybe you just started.
In either case, there was a reason you started blogging, right?
At some point, you went out and bought a domain name.
You got a hosting account.
Then you got a theme and plotted out your success path.
Or maybe you just got started on a free platform where all those things were done for you.
Finally, you started publishing some content on your blog.
My guess is that you decided to take those steps because you were looking to achieve something.
Maybe you were looking to establish your influence.
You might have been looking for a sense of independence.
Or perhaps you were just looking to supplement your income.
If you have a professional service, you might have been looking to get new clients.
Or if you were very involved in your career, you might have been seeking to establish yourself as an expert in your field.
All of these are reasons why most people blog.
And they are the main motivators that keep them working at it.
The purpose of a personal blog
Now it may have been a while since you stopped to think about why you blog.
You get all caught up in posting content.
Then you share it with the world.
Out of nowhere, somebody tells you that one of your links is not working.
So you have to tackle that issue.
Then you decide to try a new pop-up software to get people to sign up for your email list.
And of course, you’re busy writing those emails to your subscribers, right?
So you get so caught up in the process of blogging, that it’s easy to forget your bigger purpose for doing all that stuff.
Over time, the purpose of your personal blog can get lost in the weeds of blog post production and marketing.
Is blogging worth it?
So how do you get back to the real reason you started blogging?
Especially if you feel like, somewhere along the line, you’ve lost your way.
How do you get in touch with that enthusiasm and excitement that put you here to begin with?
Why blogging is so popular
People love blogging because they get something from it that they can’t find anywhere else.
Isn’t that part of what inspired you to start blogging?
And you didn’t need to spend a fortune to start your online business.
A business that can truly change your life.
It can earn you respect and authority.
And it can even give you a vehicle for earning a profit.
Aren’t those some of the things that inspired you to start blogging?
Get back on track
Okay, so maybe you got off track.
For some reason.
You got too busy to keep up.
Or things you tried just didn’t work out.
You got to feeling like you were spending too much time.
Or too much money.
And instead of your blog helping you live the dream, it had just become another job.
So maybe you started thinking that blogging was not worth it after all.
But here’s the thing.
You could probably make just a few twists and tweaks to your blog to get back on the right track.
Get back to your dreams and inspiration.
And reconnect with all the reasons why you started blogging to begin with.
