The untold truth about blogging that no blogger would ever be told.




Untold storeies about blogging that hasn't been told to anyone.
Blogging tips


Blogging sucks The untold truth about blogging that no blogger has ever told.

The truth about blogging, Sometimes it does suck!

Yes, I said it!

The Expectation of the blogging world is filled with all the lattes in the world, all the words that were written, with all the cups of coffee that were drunk. 

This is real that no one wants to talk about it.  Expecting that you could make easy money as well.

The hard fact about blogging word that no blogging wants to talk about it.

These are the cold-hearted facts of being a blogger, Let me first say that I am not sharing this information to distract you from starting that blog, Or choosing this career path.

Not at all!

I'm only sharing these ugly truths blogging I want you to come into this with open-eyes and be able to have a realistic expectation.

So many bloggers out there making a six-figure income and working a part-time schedule this is the norm.  This is not the rule, You might say it is an expectation that many do have.

So they might have worked so hard,  But gotten lucky in finding the right niche at the right time.   So they are sharing all the sweet truth about blogging because the made it.

That is not going to fly around here!

I'm not here sharing all the pretty side of blogging.  I'm here sharing the whole truth, the good, the bad also the ugly.

 I'm taking you over to the dark side of blogging.  You need to see and be prepared for that if you are going to make this business.

Fact 1:

Blogging takes a lot of work!

Know matter what other people say or trie to portray their own life or blogging as a career. 

Takes a lot of your time, and effort on your part and strategies action must be taken.

It is not about writing a few articles, and watch your readers roll in.  Which doesn't work that way?

I believe that everyone can do this.  Just try to be realistic with the process.  And except that it is going to take time and a whole lot of work.

Fact 2:

In the beginning, you will be stuck on your phone and your laptop.    You will utilize all the automation tools at a time you might want to outsource to others as well.   Otherwise, you are a one-man show.

With the research, the writing, editing, optimizing, promoting, and social media are all done by you.   For the first year.

 This is the norm.  Just like I mention this in the intro.   So many of those six-figure bloggers have a lot of help.

Fact 3:

You might not have the support of your family or friends with your blogging venture.

This is one of many blogger struggles with talking about this.   But I feel this is something that we should talk about. 

For someone that just started their new blog to the world, they are more excited and want to share it with there family and friend, they are there worse cricket.

This might discourage you in some way.  Believe me, it does.    Just focus on the one that needs a  little help and they would love to see or hear what you are writing about, what solution you might have.

Fact 4:

The problem is with this we don't take the time to eat lunch or take the necessary breaks that we need.   Most of the time we eat something that is unhealthy just to keep going.

Take care of your self in your blogging journey.  Keep healthy snacks by you and drink plenty of water too. 

This is important, to stretch daily also set some time to exercises.

Fact 5:

The biggest thing is that other people steal your work.  Which is not cool and give blogging a bad name. 


Instead of being mad about it just be prepared for it.  It does happen and it does suck.  Because there are people out there that are just lazy and are unofficial too. 






what is the proper length of a blog post to be successful.

Many new bloggers have asked this question,  What is the perfect length for a blog post?  How should my blog post be?


Common length idea to help you find your own ideal lenght.
Blogpost length/ blogging tips

Every blogger would like to have:

  • More comments
  • Increase its readers
  • More links
  • Increase its traffic

Many writers would like to build their audience base online. It is essential to learn how to write a great blog post. So if you have been blogging for a long time, sometimes it can be difficult to figure out what your audiences are wanting. Comes to terms blog length.

Have I gotten you there?

Now content is King?  So what is the perfect length, that will help you to get more readers to read and share your blog post?

It is a   myth: When it comes down to a shorter blog post it better?

The experts in blogging feed into this myth with shorter is better.   A blog post should never be any more than 600 words long.

The reason is the reader has a short attention span when it comes to reading your article that is too long.

They say that the only way that you can get more readers, is to write a short and sweet blog post.

Don't feed into that.  Honestly when I first started in blogging, The first year I fell into that.  I believed the myth was true.    I have learned more about what makes your reader read your blog post.

It depends, with the mini of 100 words length up to 2000 word length.   Each has different advantages.  It depends on what you are wanting to get out of your blog.

By having this in mind, Let me asked you these questions for what you are trying to accomplished with your blog.

Do you want more comments on your blog:

Shorter is better, especially when your post is asking your reader a question to generating conversation.

Blogging tip: Try writing a discussion-based post at least 275-word length to share on twitter.   With the main purposed of generating discussion.

So if you are trying to receive more engagement with your readers, Just post something short.

Do you want more shares on social media:

So how many shares that you receive on social media is influenced by several factors, like the topic you written about, the post quality, of course, the sizes of your audience.

Still wondering the effect of the length as to do with social shares.

So if you are wanting more shares, Just aim for a medium-length blog post between the 600-word length to 1250 word length.  You still have to write a good blog post with a good headline with a compelling premise, that solves your reader's problem.

Do you want more traffic from Google to your blog:

Who doesn't want more traffic from google?  One of the best resources is writing guess post, which drives thousand on new audiences to your blog.  It might take a little bit for other search engines, to discover your blog.

So if you still are wanting to have more traffic from google.  Write a more research blog post-2500 words in length.

Search engines love long blog post solving readers' problems.   Longer posts sometimes don't receive a lot of comments.


I learned since I've been writing blog posts, The opposite trues with longer is better.  Some of my best blog posts have been  1,000 words long.

3 Perfect length for a blog post:

So what is the perfect length?

The perfect length for a blog post:

So what is a perfect length?  Does it depend on what you are wanting to get out of your blog?  I have written various types of blog posts that were different lengths,  from 100 words to 2,000 words.

  • Do I use this:  Or you might use it in the new future. Or maybe not.  But if you want to have more space in your kitchen you have to get rid of it now to free us the space that you are needing. 
  • How many do I have:   Over the year you have accumulated a lot of extra items, such as wooden spoons, plastic ware, or storage bins too.  You have to decide how many items do you use regularly, and which one that you don't need. 
  • Would I purchased this today: The way our cooking style or your decorative style it changes from time to time.  Why did I purchase these?   The answer is just donated them. 
Just remove items that don't belong:

As I take a look at my kitchen there are some items that I know that don't belong there.  At this point clutter is clutter.  Your kitchen counter is famous for that.  Every home has the same issue. 

So once you are done with decluttering, it is the best thing, to relocated items that you have places in a box.   So don't waste your time at this moment, just wait for when your decluttering is done.

Set yourself up for success:

The sparkle of a brand new clean and organized kitchen takes to maintain regularly.   So important for you to have a daily routine when it comes to catching all the clutter when it come.

So you have to take a look at what your family is doing in the kitchen like cooking, together,  even having your family meals there too. 

The kids might be doing their homework there, also you might be looking up for recipes for some dinner idea.

By using the same process to simplify your cabinets and your cleaning products even under your sink so much more.

Final thought:

Having a clean and organizes kitchen it set the tone, in your home, that carries through with the rest on your house too.

Others prefer room basing, By cleaning one room at a time.

Your comfort level of neat and clean:

By choosing the standard of cleaning that you would be able to meet. Instead of copying someone else's.

I could live a parallel line, in cleaning my the way my mother could.  I always felt infer when my mother would come to visit.   The reason was that I couldn't live up to her standard of cleaning.  Her way of cleaning method was so the perfect-a queen could do a white glove test of clean.

Which isn't the point of how clean your home is, or not making this a pattern after all the lines disappear when someone walks over them.

I would see the fine lines in the way my mother would clean before I would come by.  I really don't know how she would keep her home clean before.  Just having a clean home should not be your daily goal.

Determine your cleaning frequency:

You have to determine how frequently you want to perform these basic chores, that you can do every day.
