There are millions of bloggers across the web, but very few are making enough to work from home full time and even fewer have made it into the millionaire blogging club. This post will examine the characteristics of a blogger who will make it and one who will fail like the millions before him. First and foremost the characteristic I see in bloggers who have been able to earn money online is heart. They live to blog and nothing comes in between them and their audience. This is fundamental when you want to make it as a blogger. Perhaps this sounds easy, but what will you be willing to give up for your blogs success. A while back in one of the most popular webmaster forums v7n.com/forums/ there was a question which asked the successful online business owners what they had to give up for their business. After a while of thinking I found that my online business has taken more than I had realized. My last relationship ended because of the time I spent working online and I had lost interest in pretty much every hobby I have ever had.
The strange thing about us webmasters and bloggers is we mesh our reality with our online world. The friends we talk with everyday online become our best friends and we lose touch with simple things such as going outside. With the loss comes hope since an experienced webmaster can reach a hundred thousand people within a month. This is where our power comes from being able to talk to hundreds of thousands and become well known across the internet which means the world. I personally could go to any continent in the world and would know someone quite well. Personally I prefer being able to reach out and touch so many people, but an important aspect of a great blogger is one who can find the balance between the online world and their real world. Work on this and you will be on your way to success.
The last factor I have seen when looking at truly successful blogs is the bloggers inspiration. There are a few things you will need to do if you would like to have everlasting inspiration. The first is turning pain, sadness, and anger into blogging material. You don’t need to write about the actual emotion, but let it fuel your drive. I experienced this personally back in November when I broke up with my girlfriend and ended up writing a hundred and fifty posts. You should also keep track of your progress and keeping it right in front of your face. If you know exactly where you started and where you are at now it should excite you and push you to push your progress. This is a fundamental aspect of my inspiration and is done by looking at the payments from some of the ppc publishing and affiliate programs I market. To make this work you need to go look at your first payment them measure how much more you are making now compared to then.
