Many bloggers, when they start to write the blog posts, struggle in doing this long-term for months or years, because they think that the success will come faster than they deserve. But in today’s over saturated market in many niches that really have great competition, you have to be very patient, and do the activities in your blogging business one thing at a time. What helps in sustaining this activity over time is really finding your purpose and by finding your purpose you will actually find time, make time for your blogging activities much easier, because this is probably the ultimate professional mindset, which has a vision. You have a vision which actually sort of passes yourself, and you want your vision, your purpose be in front of you at all times. Especially when you’re facing challenges and the short-term setbacks, struggles.
For example, for the first few weeks you might feel very optimistic with your blogging and you write posts every day, and you’re feeling inspired to come up with great ideas, or you feel like they are great ideas. But, in those few months you discover nobody really sees your blog. You then most likely will feel discouraged and think, oh blogging is not for me, not for my niche. Perhaps not for my abilities. I don’t have what it takes. And you give up, because you didn’t create a purpose, initial purpose for yourself. In order not to quit, and easier find time for your blogging activities, you really have to think about why you are doing this.
It’s this vision that will keep you going. For me blogging is always about helping people. Helping people solve their problems.

Always try to have a higher purpose, which will eventually facilitate your blogging success, and help find time for writing and blogging. This will make or break your blogging career long term.
