Blogging is no more a thing of play as it was some years back, many people earn their living through blogging and that is why today up to 500+ new blogs are being created every single day but according to researches being made, it proved that only 10 to 12% of the blogs use to be active for the next 3 months after it was created.

Why is this so? This happens as a result of the blog owner being emotionally demotivated because of the poor result that he/she got after running his blog for such long period of time (3 months or so…..) Below are 5 reasons why most bloggers fail .
1. Poor Passion:
This is the number one reason why most bloggers fail at early stage, most of them don’t have passion for blogging and still they would like to blog because they see some of the successful bloggers who are making mouth watery monthly income from their blog. Not just in blogging, in all activities in life passion is the major factor that determines the rate of your successfulness.

2. Too Eager To Earn Money:
Yes! you read it right, most newbie bloggers started blogging just for the purpose of making money ,I know money is a good motivator but it is absolutely wrong to have the mindset of making money from blogging at the first place because the money won’t come so easily, it will require much hard work before you can smell or begin to think of making money from your blog.
I have seen many people quit blogging because they don’t earn from their blog and I wouldn’t like you that is reading this to be like them, don’t quit hard work is all it requires to get there.
3. Wrong Niche:
The number 1 mistake most newbie bloggers make when they start out and even experienced bloggers make is choosing the wrong niche, this makes them to quit updating their blog frequently or to shut down the blog entirely due to the fact that they are not passionate about what they blog about.
Before you kick start your blog do research, find out what and what that you have passion for and focus on that, don’t just choose a blogging niche because you see other successful bloggers in the same niche.
4. Ignoring Seo:
You want to build a blog that can stand out from the overcrowded blogosphere and you are ignoring seo? it is very bad and if you don’t know it is amongst the reason why most bloggers fail (lack of traffic ) ,the traffic that comes from most search engines like Google is regarded as the best because the searchers are desperate and can stay longer on your blog thereby reducing your bounce rate.
I advise you to start implementing all the Seo strategies on your blog today for your own good.
5.Having Multiple Blogs At A Time – Newbies:
Some people don’t concentrate on one blog rather on multiple blogs, it is hard to develop a blog to the extent that you can run it all together with other blogs, it will get you thinking of which blog to update or work on first and when such starts,frustration follows and once frustration is present, you will begin to think of quitting.
The best thing to do is to stick with one blog and invest millions of your time on it, you will be baffled with the result that you are going to get after some months.
Over To You
Do you think that their are some other reasons why most bloggers fail that I didn’t include in this article? feel free to add yours and the same time thanks for reading.
I stopped blogging in 2012 because I lost passio n for blogging that year.
I keep working,posting and working hard,but the money isn’t coming I wasn’t encouraged. Then I sold the blog and write for people and get paid.
Nice seeing you on techribs on a grand style; giving us the best you have inform of ‘guest post’. You’re welcomed.
You said it all correctly, I believe all you said to be among the major flown of a blogger.
Addding to what you said are few list of my observations as a plan for failure by many bloggers.
1. Lack of Focus:
Many Bloggers all over the world usually fail because they lack focus on their blogging journey. A blogger who lacks focus is like a man planning to build a mansion when he only have the money to build two rooms apartment. What do you think? He can’t even finish the two rooms apartment when he uses the whole money in laying foundation for the house.
I suffered this loss some times ago when I entered into the crazy world of blogging.
A blogggers who emerges into blogging because his friend is making some bucks from it will end up one day making nothing.
Blogging is not a business you opened today and turn it into a moneypilot the next morning. Blogging takes time to marture.
The most successful peoples under the umbrella has been there for five years or more. A blogger who wants to succeed online has to plan for the future. He/she should always bear in mind, that content is king.
Once a blogger creates a unique writing skills for his readers, he transforms them into royal readers. I think I’ve said much about bloggers having focus before embarking into blogging.
2. Blogging for money
Hmmm, actually, this is the core problem with my inland co-bloggers. Everybody wants to make it online asap.
This is totally wrong, filling your pages with distracting banners, ads and links will make your blog bad. It affects the reading experiences of your visitors, it affects your site load time, it affects your database and generally, results in loosing your guests at their first visit.
And you know what this means; making your blog your personal diary, shutting your blog follows.
Let me tell you, there has been money online from time before, is still there, it takes more than you think before you can start commanding it.
You can just expect to make it huge online when you’re not creating problem solving contents. Unique contents commands SEO.
Cool down with life in blogging world, here are the 3 systems to make it online’
=> Good blog,
=> Great content and
The next is money……….

Yeah agree with your points shared above, I guess hard work and consistency plays a major role in getting a blogger on right track and also become successful sooner.
Two things you have to successed in the blogosphere which are passion and persistence,
