Picture Post: Blogging Lifecycle for Majority September 4th, 2012

Vinod Kumar

A novice blogger knows he can write about anything. A veteran blogger realizes he shouldn’t.

This picture post is more serious than it looks and drives some interesting points across. Blogging is not easy, there is always enthusiasm and excitement to start. Over a period of time there seems to be something pulling you back (other commitments) and then you slowly die out from this consistency factor.

Any blog that gets into hibernation and returns once in 6 months stating, I am back rejuvenated to start blogging – this is the first signs of the declining slide. Trust me :). Blogging is a great act – you are sharing. But more important fact is that you need to be consistent and predictable for the readers.

Don’t focus on having a great blog. Focus on producing a blog that’s great for your readers.

    A nice perspective …. i always have believed in Quality over Quantity and i am sticking by that. But passion drives anyone a long way. It doesnt matter if you are saying thing which have been already said – but what matters is the way you are telling it to people … thats what will make you stand different from others. For me after a year in to blogging – i still spend a day mentally preparing myself of the things that i want to write as a topic and a day to get it in words. I always wonder how people like you and Pinal come up with topics … you guys are true inspiration for many people … and glad to have met you and known you personally :)

    again great series you have it going … many more to see …

      Hahaha Lohith. That is an interesting perspective of Quality Vs Quantity. Need to tell you that putting yourself in a box to say that is a quality post vs some post that is so common. Well, you will be surprised to know there are many who still want to learn that basic concept even though that is there over the internet at tons of places.

      Sometimes the simplicity and our perspective to the concept always helps someone out there. Put substance into the post and don’t worry if it is a repeat of a product documentation or if a quality content. Maybe your style can bring more clarity than what a production documentation could do :). I would say, keep doing the good work – keep doing it consistently.

    You are my Guru and have shown me the right way and guided me to blog, but ways to go. Any way “Happy Teacher’s Day”. Being a student in this field I feel my self lucky as so many teachers are there.

    • Vinod Kumar says:

      There is inspiration to get from so many people around you. We ignore to see that and that is always the case. As I always say, sharing is caring and nothing better than that.

    Very True Post, I think I am now at my third birth of blogging, hope with the Interactions, Motivations, and Inspirations around, this time I live long…

    Thank you being our leader..

    Every blogger could relate this to themselves. I could be considered naive blogger, as I don’t blog that frequently but it is not dead yet like thousands of blogs found on the internet. Hope to blog at regular intervals. You, Pinal sir and many others are real motivators, learning a lot from you guys and yet to learn more.

    Thanks for this wonderful post. :)

  6. This is real fact. A novice blogger understands how difficult it is to maintain a blog and in few days, they come to an end.

    But if the blogger is passionate about his blogging stuffs, it goes to opposite. Real examples of them are Vinod, Pinal and Shiv. Shiv basically does video stuffs but that is no way less than blogging.

    Those and many more other bloggers are my inspiration and gives me regular motivation. I am thankful to myself to be a blogger.

      Haha Kunal !!! You guys are not on the majority category. You folks are rockstars when it comes to blogging and consistency. The graph for the minority has not be shown – maybe for another day. I must say – keep the good work going buddy.

      • You folks are rockstars when it comes to blogging and consistency.
        Just a baby learning from the gurus (as DJ said above). Without the motivations from the blogging gurus it was very difficult.

    • Pinal Dave says:

      Hi Kunal,

      Thanks – we all try to do something which makes us go next level.

      There are few things starting as hobby and converting into habit.

      Well, lot to write but thanks for mention.
