Have you ever hear people saying try and try harder until you succeed. Well lets say you do succeed, then what? Or how about you are a complete failure then what? Should you keep going? I hate people who tell me Syed, try harder and you will do better. It might work in some cases, but in other cases it is a waste of time.
In this post, I will tell you that blogs are not suppose to last forever. There are blogs of all sort of subjects and niches. When you start a blog, you must create a work plan. How do you want to see this blog in three months, six months, year, and two years. You must always set a deadline during this plan. So I will stop blogging after two years of its launch. Ofcourse you don’t have to stick with this deadline because you analyze it later on the time.
So you have a very successful blog that is earning you over 10k a month. You love writing on it, and you are happy with the audience and attention you are getting. After two years when you were suppose to stop blogging, you don’t have to. Instead make a new plan that sees your goal and make another deadline. If for some case, you don’t reach your goals, and it turned out to be an extreme failure, then you know that it is time to stop and move on.
Specially when you are on a very specific niche. Lets say you wanted to make a cooking blog. You have 90 recipes to share. Well then you post once every 4 days with a good recipe, all the delicious looking pictures, maybe videos and so on. But after you are done with your recipes, you can stop blogging. Leave this blog be online, so you have user interaction, but your goal was done. Think of it as a book, you can’t keep going on and on in a book. You have to end your story some where.
Not all blogs are suppose to last forever. There is always a deadline. Even very popular blogs stops publishing content. Reason is that blogging takes a lot of time. When you are writing for a mass audience, you want to make sure that you write well. You want to make sure that you give them the absolute best article. Which can potentially distract you from other project of yours. So a deadline is always necessary.
Now there is nothing wrong with being a quitter. Because it doesn’t make a you a loser. It makes you a loser, if you quit without starting. As long as you tried your hardest, then don’t consider that attempt as a failure. It was just an attempt that didn’t work.
When you don’t have any more content to write, or if you think that the content you are writing is not worthy enough, then you should re-evaluate your plans again. You can even take the whole blog down once your goal is done. Not all blogs are started or run solely for monetary purposes. People have motives behind their blogs also. So follow your dreams, but remember dreams can be altered, or changed in anyway that you want to. Because your imagination can come up with infinite possibilies. So if one dream fails, there is no need to waste more time to drag this failed attempt. Instead think of something else.
