I have seen several ‘deaths’ from the day I ventured into blogging. ‘Deaths’ has obviously has whisked soo many brilliant bloggers in this blogosphere and their trace are no longer found.
I quite remember I have written such a similar post before but today’s post is simply dedicated to one particular thing which has killed and continuous to kill these current crops of bloggers but you know what?
This post will as usual will not be complete without telling you what has happened to my good friend Little Johnny.
One day, Death came to visit Little Johnny and said, ‘Little Johnny, today is your day!!!
“Little Johnny replied: “But I’m not ready to die.
“Then Death said…. “Well there’s nothing I can do because your name is the next one on the list.
“Little Johnny said: “Okay why don’t you take a seat and I’ll get you something to eat before we go?
Then Death said: “All right”
The guy gave Death some food with sleeping pills in it. Death finished eating and fell into a deep sleep.
Little Johnny therefore took the list and removed his name from the top of the list and put into the bottom of the list.
When Death woke up, he said Little Johnny ‘hmmmm well because you have been so very good to me, I will start at the bottom of the list.
Hahaha! If you were in the shoes of Little Johnny, what were you going to do? Anyway, let Little Johnny find his way round his own business as we move back to business as usual here.
So what other way can blogging kill you fast? One of the notorious ways blogging has killed many as bloggers is the love for money. The love of money they say is the root of all evil and blogging is of course of no exception.
There has being soo many blogs which never saw the day of light simply because those bloggers behind it were very much interested in the monetary aspect of blogging or better still ventured into it simply because they heard one or two names making money through blogging.
Venturing into blogging because of the monetary aspect, then I can assure you that you’re likely to die fast as a blogger with no one to cry at your funeral. I know there has being a lot talk on this so please let me just hold my peace. You decide!
Let me move to business as well. The post entitled, ‘Another way blogging can you fast’ and that is what I want to stick with. What other way? My first point was just by the way.
I think one way blogging can kill you fast is when you compare yourself with others. To me, this is another way to kill yourself fast as a blogger. My good friend, this time not Little Johnny but instead the man Mr. Nosa Ero Nosa with Techrez once updated his timeline with respect how come people are copying his contents and with others wanting their blogs to like his.
The internet has over a billion users so the question therefore is, why don’t you become unique in your own way instead of comparing yourself with others?
Others are simply obsessed with the success of other bloggers they just want to be like them or beat them especially when it comes to alexa. Why compare your alexa ranking with someone else when you don’t even know what goes into it but one thing you must understand is that it doesn’t necessary translate proportionally to success.
Another way blogging can kill you fast is when you compare yourself with others and so please make it a point to check that. It is now your turn and what you make of this post matters a lot to me. You can have your say by commenting below.
