What’s the Hardest Part of Blogging

What’s the Hardest Part of Blogging as a Business

Running a blog can be lots of fun and very profitable if you’re blogging as a business. It can also be very stressful and difficult if you don’t have systems set in place.

A question I thought of the other day that would be of high value to my readers is “What is the hardest part of being a blogger?”

I’ve been running my oldest blog, GolfPracticeGuides.com, for over 2 years now and turned it into a 5 figure business. It hasn’t been easy, but it’s been very rewarding and become a lot more fun as the months progress and the income increases.

I would say that the hardest part of blogging is managing everything and trying to do it all yourself.

Trying To Do Everything Yourself

There are so many different parts to running a blog as a business that require many different skill sets.

While you could go the DIY route and try to learn everything in every aspect of your business, you’re likely better off learning what to outsource to other people.

This will make running your online business much easier and can speed up your growth.

Here are some but not all of the tasks you may face as a blogger and online business owner. I’ll link to resources or helpful articles I’ve written:

This list is just a small preview of the many tasks of a blogger and online business owner.

In fact, to make it easier on you I want to give you a chance to join my free 7 day blogging course which will save you headaches trying to set up your blog on your own.

This is your chance to take action on the first tip and not try to do it all yourself. My 7 day course walks you through the basic set up as well as how to start growing your audience and how to earn an income from your blog.

Learn to Outsource Tasks 

I had lots of free time on my hands in college to watch tutorials and figure it all out for myself. As I’ve grown though, I’ve started learning to outsource tasks to other people, freelancers, companies, etc. to save myself time and automate parts of my business.

For example, you could hire a web designer to set up your website initially and get it running. If you don’t like writing and the time it takes to craft each blog post, you could hire someone to write for you.

If you don’t like the editing phase, you could hire someone else to go through the post and edit it for grammar, spelling, etc.

If you don’t understand Search Engine Optimization (SEO) then hire a freelancer who is an SEO expert that can review your website pages and blog posts for ways to improve their search engine ranking.

You’ll need to determine what tasks are most important to you to do yourself and figure out how you can outsource the rest to speed up the growth of your blog and online business.

Running a blog takes a lot of time as mentioned, but if you create systems then you’ll be able to cut down your hours while still getting lots of work done and moving forward with positive momentum.

Additional Resources

Here are several resources I highly urge you to read to help you succeed in starting your profitable blog or online business:

Here are my top recommended resources I use in my business to run my blogs:

  • Bluehost – a self-hosted website service provider that makes your website professional and gives you advanced features that free website providers can’t offer
  • Namecheap – who I purchase my website domains from for $10/year
  • ConvertKit – my email service provider that manages my email list and subscriber newsletters
  • OptinMonster – the email capture form service that creates high converting opt in forms for building my email list
  • LeadPages – the company I use to build high converting sales pages, landing pages, and opt-in pages for growing my email list and revenue
