I scrolled down a Facebook Group recently.
One struggling blogger became so fed up, he just wanted to quit.
Another struggling blogger told him to see the journey through, offering how he made no money and had little traffic, and how he too wanted to succeed, but ultimately, to just keep trying.
I observed both responses and responded with my experienced, pro-blogger advice.
One of the struggling bloggers responded by saying I should check out his blog, inferring it was worth checking out as a trusted, valuable resource. Why? To learn how to fail? 😉 In all seriousness, I did check it out and he did a few things well but also made many big mistakes, which is why he struggles and fails. If he was open to feedback he would be more successful. But when I offered my experienced, honest feedback on his blog – which he told me to check out – he became defensive. Of course, I let it go.
His ego blind spot is consistent with one struggling blogger obvious idea that failing bloggers literally cannot see: if you are struggling, what you are doing *is not working.*
He defended one thing I suggested he change. That element of his blog *is not working*, plus an experienced, skilled, successful blogger told him it is not working. But he believes it is working, even though he struggles terribly and can be spotted on blogging ad click and page view threads for years, by now.
Some of what he is doing works but MOST is not working.
If you are struggling with your blog, 100% of the time, most if not all of what you are doing is not working. So…..admit this, and stop doing what is not working!
