6 Surprising Signs Why You Will Quit Blogging

Blogging is becoming more and more competitive and popular by every day passing, which is the reason more and more people are getting into this business. New bloggers mostly think of this business as a shortcut to make money and step into it. But sooner or later, they eventually quit blogging.

Are you one of those people? Are you ever going to quit blogging?

Here are the few signs that you will quit blogging.

6 Surprising Signs Why You Will Quit Blogging

1. You don’t have time!

Everyone is busy in this world!

Blogging takes too much time! You’ll quit blogging soon if you don’t have time to blog. Every time you sit down to blog, something “more important” comes up and you just can’t spend time on your blog.

If you’re spending more time on social method or useless activites that have nothing to do with your blog. That’s when you’ll quit blogging.

2. You are always in Blogger’s Block:

Blogger’s block is when you can’t think of an idea of what to write. You lose the ability to work on your blog or producing content.

If you are always in blogger’s block, you are always struggling to get new ideas and you never know what next you are going to write about, then things are pointing towards a dark side for you.

If a blogger is fully determined to become famous and successful, he finally finds a way to get new ideas and keep going, but those who always complain that they don’t get ideas are the ones who have low levels of determination and they are destined to fail and quit blogging.

3. You hate to read other blogs:

If you find it boring to search your topics and read other people’s blogs, you are done.

In order to be different, unique and stand out in blogosphere you need to have killer quality content and the only way to produce killer quality content is by searching the topic a lot and then pouring a lot of information on the reader by using little number of words.

Hence, if you don’t love reading, you will soon stop loving writing and typing & saying good-bye to this business.

4. Your posts are not proofread:

One of the simplest ways to tell if a blogger will succeed or quit is by looking at his articles.

If you find no mistakes at all both in spellings and grammar, you can say that he is a horse of long ride. ;)

But if articles are filled with errors, it is safe to say that the guy who wrote this piece doesn’t really love to write, which is the reason he didn’t take the safe step and re-read his own articles and instead published as it was with errors and misspellings. 

5. You don’t have a Top Level Domain:

Blogging at sub domain indicates that blogger is not really serious about blogging and he will eventually disappear. Another reason why blogger with sub domains quit is because they have nothing to lose since; they have not invested anything at all.

While in case of top level domain, bloggers think thousands of times before saying good-bye to business. Hence, if you want to be a successful blogger and keep yourself safe from temptation of quitting blogging, get a top level domain as soon as possible.

6. You don’t have Niche Blog:

The most popular reason for ending careers of many bloggers is not having a clear plan. They don’t even have a clear concept of niche.

Such blogger publish anything and everything they want, but still don’t succeed because no one cares about such blogs. This is a sure-fire indication that blogger will go away very soon.

Don’t worry!

The reason behind writing this post is not to make you feel like quiting blogging. These are just signs that you might quit blogging sooner than later. So you should avoid these.

To keep you motivated. I found a quote. I’m sure, you’ll love this.

    Lack of passion is another strong reason why most people quit blogging.

    And it’s very hard to get it! “Passion comes from heart, not from money” :)

    Great one dude. Keep rocking Ammar.

  2. says

    Hi Ammar,
    wonderful post, yes agree with all your points. . Reading other blogs is essential, reading helps us to stay updated and also it helps to get new ideas. . Thanks for sharing :)

  3. Jafar Dhada says

    Nice to read a post from you Ammar.

    one of the biggest reason why people quit blogging is, THEY STOP OR DON”T MAKE MONEY! So they get depressed and boom!

  4. says

    Thank Ammar Ali for sharing this article. I think that all the points that you had mentioned are true and really I hate reading other blogs. I thank you that you had shared this article.

  5. says

    Hi Ammar,
    Very nice points you have pointed out.
    Since last few weeks I feel like I am trying to left blogging just because of lack of time.
    Rest of the points mentioned above are fine with me.
    The very first point that is happening with me.
    I used to get time on weekends only.
    Just trying to schedule my posts this weekend to get rid of.
    Lets see how it goes.
    Well, thanks a lot for your words.

    When I am enter in the world of blogging at that time I tried to get adsense near about 1 year but not get. That time I decided to quite blogging but my one of friend just try next 6 month then you see..

    After few of months I got adsense. Then I understand that I was doing big mistakes. Therefore I will suggest when you enter in the world of blogging at that time you must join blogging forums, facebook groups and communities related with blogging and share your opinion and difficulties with others because there are lots of peoples to solve your problem

  7. says

    I love what you have written here. I am a new blogger and I can see everything in my blog what you have explained here, but believe me I will not give up. Thanks for this great post. This tells me what are the thinks I should avoid :).

  8. says

    Hello Ammar,
    A great topic for discussion and I do have a few cents to add, however, first things first.You wrote “Here are the five signs that you will quit blogging.” by mistake whereas you should have said “six” instead of “five”. Well, I commit this type of mistake all the time and perhaps that only means I am not the only one who makes these mistakes :-)

    Speaking of having a “niche blog”, I see things a bit differently. To me, it depends on your strategy really. For example, as your domain name indicates, you started this with a specific things in mind. But if you look at Michael Hyatt (and me), we have our websites for our brand names. Our websites represent us (as human beings) and as a person, I have many passions, many things to say. So, I have to be generic on my blog. Sometimes I have to share my thoughts about leadership, sometimes about social media, sometimes about an awesome movie I watched and perhaps a few lessons I learnt and some other times, it could be a problem I faced on my website which I want to inform my readers.

    So, I like to keep it interesting for my community. I like to keep it as human as possible so my blog really represents me and not a topic.

    However, that doesn’t mean that Michael Hyatt or me will give up. In fact, we see tremendous growth of our blog as well as our businesses because we attract prospects and customers much better because of the personal touch we give through our blogs.

    May be you came to this topic from a different view point. But I think people can go to great lengths if they know why they are doing what they are doing. If somebody doesn’t know why they started blogging (or anything for that matter), they will fade away. Their failure is a result of their lack of vision, lack of purpose.

    All in all, you have shared some great pointers and I enjoyed sharing my thoughts with you today.
    Regards,
    Kumar

    Again a superb post Ali.. i really like your writing. I agree with all your points… I also think that these things are one that mainly make a man quit from blogging. One other main reason is the people that don’t earn from there blog and don’t have patience also quit from blogging.
    So, in my view patience must be there in a blogger.

  10. Muhammad saleem says

    Hi Ammar,
    You only fail when you give up and when we talk about blogging, it require a big heart which is full of passion then you can become able to get success. And most of us has lack of this thing.

  11. says

    Hey Ammar,

    Nice article. At the start of my blogging career it was difficult for me to read other blogs and i was not getting good ideas for writing content but i was passionate about blogging. I started reading articles on other blogs and developed ideas for writing content. By the way, thanks for the article.

  12. says

    Great posts Ammar. Nicely explaining the points like you once gave u Blogging and experienced the deadly signs of quitting as a blogger.

    Also the mention about the Top Level Domain is a considerable point for a lot of people. It makes blogging much efficient and higher ROI in time.

  13. says

    I ran a personal blog for a year and a half on WordPress, updating in the evenings after work with surreal humour and nonsensical rambling. My traffic grew steadily but never exploded – the popular blogs tended to be the ones with women draping themselves over stuff provocatively and waxing some Buddhist quotes into about 100 words. A bit frustrating, so I gave up as it was too time consuming.

  14. says

    Nice Write Up! I guess when you start blogging about everything, without concentrating on a particular niche, that’s when frustration sets in.

  15. says

    Well some of these are not surprising signs but obvious signs. Like the lack of time and not reading other blogs. Time is the most important thing when it comes to running a blog and lack of your time won’t do any good. Also, reading other blogs is also equally important as no one can be perfect and these blogs teach us so much.
    Thanks for sharing.

  16. says

    Hi Ammar,

    Great post, I agree with you that time plays a huge part in getting work done. Especially, when everyone has so many other things going in their life.

    This is why I think that people need to set goals for themselves. When they have taken the time to write their goals out, they know what they want to achieve.

    Most people who are dedicated to their goals will do whatever it takes to reach them. The only way you can’t reach your goals is if you give up.

    Thanks for sharing this inspiring post, I know that it will help people who have thought about giving up at one point or another.

  17. says

    Hi Ammar,

    Really inspiring post. I have to admit I have that feel sometimes in past. Until I commit to myself and put a written plan as guidance. Ever since my blog improve. What I need are follow my plan and evaluate the result.

    May be time is my biggest enemy. But if we think our blog important then we should buy time for it. It show our seriousness on things.

    Great post

  18. Rahul Pahal says

    In my point of view ‘being in blogger’s block’ is the most affecting reason when it comes to quit blogging. because content updation is the backbone for any blog. You should have a wide range of ideas for blogging.

  19. says

    Thanks Ammar,
    Above mentioned 6 signs are really accurate and informative. and i think all the blogger face these situation once. Ammar, your post inspire us to continue the journey of blogging with passion and interest. thanks again for this helpful and useful post.

  20. says

    Well said…… Ammar

    The mostly faced problem is time management, as most of us don’t manage our time efficiently. I would recommend all of them to make a time table and go accordingly!

  21. Olivier says

    Hi Ammar,
    Yes you are very true Everyone is busy in this world. I completely agree with your concept. But what do you mean by top level domain in point 5 ?

    • Ammar Ali says

      Means .com domain. If you’re serious about blogging, you should buy custom domain like .com, .net, or .org

  22. says

    Hi Ammar,
    just a quick thought and a motivation tip for all my friends,
    if its not working for you monetizing your own blog, you can always blog to promote other businesses,
    after all blogging is part of online marketing, and who says you can only promote your own blog, online marketers promote businesses not blog posts.

    *Each month, 329 million people read blogs.
    *Blogs give sites 434% more indexed pages and 97% more indexed links.
    *37% of marketers say blogs are the most valuable content type for marketing.
    *Companies that blog 15+ per month get 5 times more traffic than companies that don’t blog.
    *Companies an active blog reports 97% more leads.

    who says direct monetizing a blog with adsense or affiliates is the only way to go ;) ???

    Cheers.
    Many thanks and Best wishes!

  23. Anirban Karmakar says

    you said about top level domain dose search engine index top level domain more than free domain like blog spot or wordpress

  24. Hamid Roshaan says

    2nd and 6th one, I Actually Have some problems in finding the topic of new posts, and than I was also not having any niche site, But Now I am having both, Ideas and Niche sites, sometimes Ideas disappear but niche site is always there for me :D

  25. Aahna says

    Hi Ammar,

    Blogging is about knowing information and then sharing it with your targeted audience, which requires market research and that is only possible if you spend time to read blogs, relevant forums, Q&A sites etc. If you’re not doing this then you won’t be able to share useful and up to date information… which ultimately make your blog useless and nobody likes to visit there.

  26. says

    Yes exactly , Ammar Ali , you have written 100% truth signs of quitting blogging , but i think that if a person has strong determination , then he/she can do anything . Work hard , and success is yours , this is the main thing which everyone must keep in mind .

    Success only comes to those , who try things practically .

  27. says

    Hi Ali,

    The quickest way to quick is for a blogger not to invest on their blogs. Obviously, no one like to labour lost but when certain amount of money is being invested before expecting any return it will keep us in the community even when we have not make anything yet from our blog. A good reader is a good learner, to be a successful blogger, we must cultivated the habit of reading so as to widen our horizon as a blogger. Thanks for this informative post.

  28. says

    A very awesome post as always Ammar,
    And, i agree with all you said here. The one that’s always caught up with me is the issue of lack of time. Its not easy all brother to be combining studies and business and, I’m sure that’s one problem many people are also facing.

    I use to have bloggers block back in the days but, not any more. I now have lots of ways to come up with ideas of what to write about so, that has been solved :).

    I just wished i could buy more time :).

    Thanks for sharing bro :).
