You are not blogging frequently
Everyone knows his or her abilities. No two fingers are the same so those it applies to the blogging industry. Some bloggers are able to pull 2 -3 articles daily while some find it hard to come up with an article every week.
Everyone has his or her own capabilities and knows what blogging routine suits them best but then if you wish to be successful in the longrun you should be able to update your blog on a daily basis
You are no friends with probloggers
When you are new to blogging you are just like a baby who is learning how to take its first step.
How on earth will you be able to grow if you are not making friends with top influentials in your niche who has been in the game for a while
You are not getting offers
The truth still stands. No matter the niche you find yourself in so far as you are the best at what you do, you will always see sponsored posts and adverts coming from a lot of prestigious companies.
If you are not getting offers from organizations or companies that’d because you aren’t good enough
You are not working on your Seo
To have a blog is one thing, to promote it is other big thing.
How will people get to know about your blog if it is not appearing on the first page of Google?
Same question goes like this
How will you be getting a lot of organic traffic if you are not optimizing your site for Seo?
Seo is a process of driving traffic from search engines. If you have not been working on your Seo efforts then it’s high time you do so
You are not setting goals for yourself
Funny enough so many people do not have an iota of knowledge about blogging before venturing into it
Surprisingly enough 75% of people who go into blogging do so for the money and not for the love of it. When they see a friend who has been making money from blogging they go into it thinking its that easy
Now tell me
What happens when frustration sets in?

You are not thinking about your blog future
So many see blogging as a get rich quick scheme but unfortunately it isn’t. It may take years before you will be able to make your first earnings from your blog
Ask your self this question

You are not thinking of others

Blogging is like a lifetime career. Many do it for fun while others see it as a full time business. Just like any other business you will be needing capital to keep things going. If you are not having enough capital for your blog how then will you purchase custom themes and pay for services.
