Hello! I wasn’t sure what I wanted to talk about today. But then this quote started nagging me.
“Give a man a fish, and you’ll feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you’ve fed him for a lifetime.”
This is one of my favorite quotes of all time. I am a firm believer of it. So when this quote came to mind, I jumped on the opportunity to write about it. This quote comes in handy when it comes to life and blogging. So many of us want the easy way out. It’s So much easier if someone can just hand us something. But when this happens, we’ll be satisfied for a minute, and then right back in need.
In blogging I’ve noticed that people would like readers to just fall in their laps. They think they can just write and people should fall in place. I wish it was that easy!🤦🏾There is even people/ businesses who offer to drop thousands of readers in your lap. Just pay a fee, and they can give you tons of traffic. I don’t know if that Is true, maybe they can🤷🏾. And I have absolutely no idea where they would get thousands of people from that would automatically come to your page because you paid a fee. It sound kind of creepy honestly! 😳But, say if that is true, if your blog is not in top shape, and reader friendly, your readership will decline fast. The readers will start to leave, and you’ll be constantly paying for fake readers.
So, your best bet is to not pay for readers at first, or ask other bloggers for free advertisement. Your best bet is to put in the work. And that mean making your blog reader friendly, and Networking with other bloggers. Take time out to form a relationship with your readers. All of this is worthwhile. Because you can gain readers not only for a minute, but for a lifetime! But I will say that buying readers might help you if want to experiment to see if your blog is reader ready. Perhaps a good amount of readers might stay?🤷🏾
If you don’t take the earning attitude in your personal life, you most likely won’t understand this tip I’m giving. For example, So many of us think that just handing over money or a house to the homeless will solve the problem.
Yes, a few dollars will feed them one meal, and yes, a house will get them off the street temporarily. Even winning a million dollar lottery will help them temporarily. But what they and we really need is someone to help teach us a skill. The homeless need to learn a skill and have job opportunity. We all need training and career opportunities!
Money management is also important. What’s the purpose of having a lot of money if you’ll Just blow it all on a lot of nonsense. We need to know about proper investments and savings. Success is a journey and take time. We live in a microwave society that has spoiled us into thinking that’s how everything work. But it’s not. The most successful people in life put in a lot of hard work behind the scenes before you saw their success up front! So if you want to dedicate yourself to blogging, then my tips are for you. If you want a get readers quick scheme, this is not for you!
Good luck on your ventures!😀
