Don’t Quit On Your Blog’s Mission

Don't quit on your blog

When I started this blog, it was clear in my mind that I had something in me I could share that would be a blessing to someone out there.

I did not claim to be an expert in anything but I knew without doubts that many people would benefit from reading my printed thoughts.

With that mindset, I began writing and publishing articles on the blog…

But I made the mistake of underestimating the negative backlashes that would come from starting the blog.

Initially, I felt really hurt by the unkind things some people said to me.

“There are too many blogs out there,” I was told. “Nobody will notice yours. You are just wasting your time.”

Someone opined that he was sure I would run out of ideas within three months of starting the blog.

Another person even said he wished the blog was dead already…

Such were some of the unkind things that were said to me when I started blogging.

The painful part was that these people that said those hurtful things were not people I wasn’t acquainted with.

Despite their negative criticisms, I refused to be discouraged. So instead of the blog dieing in three months as they predicted, it is still waxing stronger three years after.

The fact that you are reading this right now is an evidence that the blog has survived the negative onslaughts.

I have not arrived yet, but I have left! Looking back now, I have every course to smile…

In the midst of the harsh criticisms I received, there have also been many positive feedbacks.

These encouraging feedbacks I received coupled with the firm belief in my blogging mission has encouraged me to keep writing the blog.

And I don’t have any plan of giving up…

By not quitting, I have gained alot in terms of knowledge and wisdom. I have grown and I’m still growing.

I have sharpened my writing skills and learning new things. I have expanded my online network and networth.

I have touched a few lives with my posts. And I have been touched as well by posts from other people.

Now I look back on the blogging journey with a broad smile. And it promises to be better…

I have overcome the hurts that would have weighed me down. I have more positive energy now.

Just like me, you might be facing negative criticisms and other challenges with your blog. But you will rise above them…

One little advice I will give to you for free is this:

If you truly believe in your blog’s mission, please don’t quit on it!

    I guess everyone has their own reason for writing. Seems like you started with a purpose and filled that purpose. Congrats! I, on the other hand, don’t have a specific place that I am trying to be. So for me, I find this to be a win-win situation.

    Even if no one becomes attractive to my writing at least I will have a few pieces out there for my children to read. And with all honesty, I myself enjoy reading my own pieces. I love the way it looks on screen. But most importantly, just knowing the few visitors that have come across my writing and left comments, lets me know that my writing has some sort of meaning. And just that one person makes me feel like I have reached a million.

      Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Even a little voice is a voice. Our blogs represent our little voices.

      It is good to have some people read our blogs. But nothing is wrong if more people read them as well. The more the better.

      Whatever reasons we might have started our blogs for, we should believe in it to the point that we are not discouraged when negative criticisms come…

      Good you enjoy reading your own posts too. It is good thing! If we don’t like our posts how do expect other people to like them?

      I have a draft post exploring that thought. I hope you will check it out when I publish it soonest.

    Thank you for staying the course. I understand very well that tug to throw in the towel—I feel it keenly at times. I started my blog with the purpose of pointing people towards God, and while I often feel weak and stuttering, I know that God can use my little voice to encourage even one struggling soul. I keep writing and I hope God is glorified, magnified, and honored as He ought to be.

      Yes, indeed God can use our little voices to encourage other people. That’s why we shouldn’t throw in the towel because of negative criticisms. Thanks for reading and commenting.
