First of all, thanks for reading this post, I’m sure you would be a regular or subscribed visitor of DBM. I apologize for not updating anything new here. It’s been around four months since I have published new articles here, there are several reasons for that. Sometimes personal and blogging life do not go as we liked or expected. Things change the way or put you down or even shift the interest.
I’m not sure what you will be learning from this post, but this is mainly a personal message to my readers, of course, you can take away some practical blog management tips. Even though I’m going to share the reasons why I stopped writing here at DailyBlogMoney blog, but my second question is still unanswered, why should I write in future?. You have to tell me why I should write and update this blog in future?
Why I stopped Writing?
1) Nothing new and excited. I’m out of useful content ideas.
To be honest, I didn’t have anything new or useful to write here. I stared this blog to share my blogging experience and lessons, so basically I have not experienced anything valuable to share during past four months. I was not completely out of blogging last four months, but that period was very dull. If you see my main tech blog’s content archive, I rarely published more than 5 articles per month which was very bad for any type of blogger.
So it was a dull blogging period with no exciting or new blogging news.
2) Changes in full time job
As you are aware still I’m a part time blogger and need to concentrate on my full time job, the recent changes in my full time job made blogging tough. Recently I got a ‘reasonable’ increment and promotion at my current job which made me to concentrate more on full time job. Earlier I used to blog from office, but now I have to do my office work at home and during weekends too. So, you can guess how much it affected my blogging activities.
3) Enough of Money? (no answer yet), No more new targets?
I started blogging to make extra money apart from my full time job because of the financial issues I had in my life. But, the current financial life is OK for me and my family. After getting the increment at my full time job and the current stable blogging income, I think my mind settled with the total money I earn. I’m not that type of person who wants to make more and more money always, I think having more money also headache, do you agree?
So, I’m asking my self, is it enough? really I don’t know. Last few months I did not set any income targets to earn, whatever comes that is enough for me. I could not work harder to increase the income like how I worked one or two years ago, may be because of settled income?
4) I became father of second child
Yes, I’m blessed with a baby boy and he completed two months now. This sweet (pre/post) moment made me stay out of blogging for few months.
At the same time, this is an extra financial responsibility for me. So, I need to work harder to make more money online, correct?
Here is my boy, taken next day of birth ( I’m happy to share with you guys)
5) No money from this blog.
Even with the above reasons I used to publish few articles on my tech blog because it is making money for me,but this blog is not like that. DBM is not making considerable amount of money, so I didn’t want to spend my time on this blog.
The only encouragement or return I get from this blog are your comments and my self satisfaction that I helped someone on blogging, so I thought this blog can wait for updates ( sorry for it)
This is a real life example how your blogging activities can get affected by exterior factors. I’m not going to promise that I will be updating this blog on daily basis from today, really I can’t do that. But, I will try my best to update this very frequently. I need your support to make this blog active, in a way by asking some interesting, useful and not answered blogging questions to me. That will give some ideas to write my next post. Recently I got an interesting question from a reader via email and that will be answered in coming days.
Also, I’m very much interested to listen your progress in terms of blog traffic and income growth in last four months. We can discuss about it in comments area.
I wish you all the best. Stay tuned!
