5 Things You Should Consider Before Becoming A Full-time Blogger 1

1. Building A Successful Blog Takes A Lot Of Time

If you want to be able to make a full-time income from a blog you’ll need to build an audience, and
It doesn’t happen overnight.

Although, there are some exceptions where a blog becomes popular almost instantly, but those situations are extremely rare situations that most of us can’t count on.

If you want to be able to run a blog as a full-time job the best method is to start off as soon as possible and work to grow the blog part-time while still maintaining your full-time job.

Unless you’re in a position where you can afford to live without much income for a while, jumping straight into full-time blogging is not likely to work out very well.

2. Running A Blog Is Like Running A Business

As a blogger, I’ve had to take some difficult decisions that would either make or destroy my blog. It’s like making decisions for your business.
Building a successful blog requires dedication, just like if you were trying to build some other type of business.

If you take your blog like a business you will get more dedicated and consistent with your schedule and be willing to invest in your success.

3. Your Income Will Be Inconsistent
If you have always had a salaried job where your income was consistent and predictable, becoming a full-time blogger will involve some change.
Regardless of how you make money with your blog
there will always be some fluctuation from month-to-month.
This isn’t a bad thing, it just requires some adjustment, and some people are more uneasy about it than others.

Personally, I like knowing that my income fluctuates because it’s very obvious that the potential to make more money is right there, and it keeps me motivated.
Although your income will fluctuate, it will usually stay within a certain range, and hopefully that range will be increasing with time.
If you can adjust your lifestyle and your monthly financial commitments to fit with the low end of your range, anything that you make above that will be extra.

4. Traffic Does Not Always Equal Money

When most people start blogging their main focus is on traffic and visitor statistics.
If they had a good day in terms of traffic, it’ll be considered as a success.
However, just because you have decent traffic doesn’t mean that you’ll have a profitable blog. Likewise, just because your blog’s traffic isn’t huge doesn’t mean that you can’t make a good income from it.

Selling advertising is one of the first monetization methods that comes to mind for most people who want to make money from a blog, but in most cases it is not the best monetization strategy.

Other options like affiliate marketing, creating and selling your own products, providing services, and having premium members-only content all offer higher income potential for most bloggers. Advertising revenue is highly dependent on traffic, but the other monetization methods allow you the possibility of having a successful blog without having high traffic numbers.

5.Having A Responsive Audience Leads To Opportunities

If you’re just starting your blog don’t get too overwhelmed by all of the different ways that you can go about monetizing your blog.
Most likely your monetization plans and approach will change from time-to-time anyway.
As you build your blog’s audience new opportunities will arise, and some approaches that didn’t seem possible earlier can suddenly become a lot more realistic.

How To Compare Phones And Check Prices Before Buying 3

How To Compare Phones

I just added a price and spec comparison feature to this blog. You can compare phone specs and prices then buy it if there’s a link to the store available in the option. –

I normally go to e-commerce stores and pick out the lowest prices so you get the best value for your money.  Regular blog post updates would resume immediately.

Thanks for being an amazing reader.
