It hurts when a post you labored over doesn’t get any comments.
And it stings when no one shares your content on Facebook or Twitter.
But it really feels like a punch to the gut when your ideas don’t go anywhere, doesn’t it?
After all, most of us became bloggers because we had ideas we wanted to spread.
Important ideas. Life-changing ideas. Hell, even world-changing ideas.
But if your ideas aren’t spreading, does that mean you’re failing as a blogger? Is it time to give up?
Before you go off and have a pity party, let’s ask ourselves why your ideas haven’t taken off.
Maybe you haven’t found your voice yet. Maybe your niche is just too crowded. Maybe you’re looking for inspiration in the wrong places.
Or maybe you know how to come up with interesting ideas, but you’re not so good at promoting them. Or you genuinely have a brilliant new take on the world, but you fail when “selling” it to others.
If this describes you, do not despair. You’re not alone. And there is an answer.
