Another day has dawned on us as usual and Kabenlah jas no option than to write. Yes, I obviously need to write something. Hahaha! I have being away for a while and I doubt whether you will love to know where I have being all these while. For those sending me emails wanting to know whether I’m preparing for my wedding anniversary; here I am and unfortunately I have still no bride at least not yet.
As usual, this post isn’t complete without my good friend Little Johnny and today is of course no exception; he is still in trouble again.
An inspector going round checking TV licence and gets into Little Johnny’s house.
Little Johnny: I do not have a TV, that means I do not have a licence.
Inspector: But I saw a TV antenna on your roof?
Little Johnny: Inspector please come in.
(Little Johnny opens the fridge and points to the jar of milk)
Little Johnny :Inspector, what is this?
Inspector: How can you ask me such a silly question, it’s a jar of milk.
Little Johnny: Does that mean I have cows in my yard?!
Hahaha! Let move back to business as usual and as you already know, the issue on board is ‘Roadblocks to motivation in Blogging’
Many blogs are already winding up without any reason or better still, reasons such as adsense not being approved. That’s weird!
So you have been blogging for quite some time. You think that it has been a long time while you are doing the same tasks repeated, time and again. You neither have much of the visitors to your blog on a daily basis. You applied for Google adsense and Google E-mailed you by kindly stating
Your application for adsense has been rejected due to the following reasons:
copyright material(or any other reason) or site doesn’t comply with terms and conditions
You again posted some quality content and built some more backlinks and then applied for Google adsense but the result was the same; you have been disapproved once again. Also, you have not been able to increase the traffic. So, don’t you get demotivated?
These are all of the external roadblocks to motivation in blogging. However, you might have some internal ones also such as lack of interest, lack of enthusiasm, lack of confidence or lack of patience. All of these result to decelerate your pace towards a meaningful creation.
So, from where do you find the milk for the tea?
The sources for motivation may differ for different people. As the person in particular may behave very differently for a particular situation.
“You have got a dream; you have to protect it. People wanna say something to you, they say you can’t do it” – Pursuit of Happiness
Remember the last football match you ever watched? Whenever the team has not scored up to the mark, the coach does not scold the players. Instead, he used to motivate them by his own peculiar ways. And many a times, his team does remarkably good to win the match from a situation from where it seemed just nowhere. So, it is all about motivation.
Motivation is essentially a gradual process. What is important is to let you get motivated. The key to success is to tap yourself to the appropriate and the right sources of motivation. The sources include:
Actual Motives– You should identify the actual needs you want to satisfy. You should identify why you pursue things and then put effort to fulfill them.
Start finding fun inside your work, what you do.
Try to improve your reputation among the people who share the same thoughts as you.
Find the desire among yourself to meet the expectations of others from you. Also, try to inculcate the power to negate the people who think you cannot do something by doing better than what they thought of you.
Try not to pay attention to the words of those people who do not have the dare to appreciate the people for their good deeds. They do not deserve to be taken seriously by the hard working mass.
Do not indulge yourself in the ordinary tasks, particularly when you are failed. Just try harder for the challenging tasks and when you should be successful in accomplishing the target, the feeling you shall get shall be just awesome.
Last, but not the least, you need to believe in whatever you are doing. Of course the hard work you are doing is worthwhile of making you a successful person at the end of the day.
What can be the factor for motivation?
There can never be a set of guidelines to have a source of motivation. As every person is unique and have its own identity, the motivating source could be anything from a book, to a friend, family or any material also. The main aim is to find the source and let the spark among you alive. It is the spark actually which differentiates the dead from the lively, the meaningful from the scratch.
Tending to conclusion:
You may have read many articles regarding “how be a successful blogger”. In most of them, you must have read about the particulars you have to follow as writing quality content, doing seo, or other blah blah. But, I had seen it with a new perspective. What I think personally is that at first you should find the motivation in any work what you are doing and rest all will follow on its own.
It’s now your to share your views. What are your roadblocks to motivation in this whole blogging thing? And how have you survived all these? Let’s hear your views through your comment!
