Today’s quote that Dr Tanya has presented to us for discussion is;
“A professional writer is an amateur who didn’t quit.” — Richard Bach
Although I agree with this quote in reference to writing in general, it hardly applies to blogging. A person who aspires to be a professional writer starts as an amateur and kept on diligently writing till they achieved success.
And as Tanya said in her post, any person who acquires success has had to work hard and consistently to get where they wanted to reach.
In blogging world, the success is measured differently. Some people want to be read and appreciated, irrespective of the number of followers they have. While others measure success by the number of people who follow their blog or leave likes and comments on their posts.
In blogging, there’s a world of difference between a professional blogger and a personal one ( non-professional), they aim for different things and the way they approach blogging is different too. A professional wants to make money from their blog. That is done by advertising, using sponsored links, and promoting other products that in turn pay them. While a personal blogger blogs for personal satisfaction only. They may dream of making some money by getting WordPress to advertise Wordads on their blog but that never amounts to more than a few dollars.
In conclusion, I’d say that gaining success in any field needs hard work. Writing is no different. And in blogging, if you want to achieve your personal goals, put in the effort!
