15 Reasons Why I hate Blogging

Yeah, I knew that would get your attention. Surprised? Will it surprise you that not everyone loves to blog. But I don’t want this post to put you off blogging, rather I want it to serve as a tool to remind you what you are in for when you start blogging.

  1. It’s a lot of hard work. No one told me it would be blood sweat and tears.
  2. There is a lot of pressure to produce quality content regularly.
  3. It’s time consuming. I spend hours on research reading other blogs, commenting, writing.
  4. You have to care for other people. Your blog is not about yourself. It’s there to help your readers.
  5. Subscribers take so long to increase. It’s a continuous struggle to increase your readers and subscribers.
  6. There is a lot of competition. It’s hard to stand out and make a difference. You have to be special.
  7. I’m not a writer. I have no formal education in writing. In fact I nearly failed English in primary school!
  8. I’m dyslexic.
  9. I have to moderate comments. Yes, there are bad people out there. People who want to spam, people who write hate comments, bad comments.
  10. Not everybody loves me or my blog. That's difficult to swallow. People hate me?
  11. People criticise me. That's hard to accept.
  12. It’s a hungry beast. You have to post regularly or else people stop coming to read. Why can’t they give me a break?
  13. I have to help other bloggers. Blogging is not just about one person.  I find myself drawn to helping other bloggers. This is hard work and time consuming.
  14. It’s an emotional drain. Yes, there are up’s and downs. I laugh, and cry, I love and hate. Why isn’t the world simple?
  15. I hate that I love blogging. Yes it’s an oxymoron. But it’s so addictive. I find myself in cold turkey if I don’t blog for a day.

Ok so it’s not really about me hating blogs or disliking blogging. It’s about the other side of blogging that many people such as you and I have to deal with. Yet they overcome and carry on.

Are there things about blogging that you have to overcome. Things like time constraints, regular posting, new blog post idea.
