In today’s publication, I’ll be showing you the ways to motivate yourself when working from home no matter what you feel or how you feel.

Here are the things to do to ensure you get motivated while working from home:

  4. Begin with fundamentals, then move to more advanced ideas later

Restore Your Motivation for Blogging

It sometimes happens in life that we get bored in whatever we’re doing due to particular circumstances or situations of life and we need some strategies to get over these one of which is restoring our motivation for blogging. This occurs too during the course of blogging. You may have drawn plans that you want to be posting content every day.

You may have planned that you’ll be participating in forums every day, providing answers to people’s questions on Quora, as well as socializing on an everyday basis but may discover that these cease to materialize as a result of unforeseen or unwanted circumstances of life.

What do you do in such circumstances to ensure that you don’t get bored or discouraged from making your daily blogging plans materialize? Restoring your motivation for blogging is the way out. Getting back to business is the right solution no matter what the situation might be, not declining every day. Declining will surely end in giving up. And when you give up, quitting is guaranteed.

Do More of Blogging and Less of Social Networking

I’ve seen some struggling veteran bloggers who spend most of their hours on socializing rather than spending more time on creating content and building engagement. They believed they can get the most from socializing as far as building a website for Google ranking is concerned, whereas, this is not ideal.

When it was still feasible to drive almost instant traffic from social media, it wasn’t enough yet to get a top ranking in Google for social traffic is just one-quarter of the classifications of traffic that Google looks into while accessing a site for page rankings.

The ideal idea that works for any niche website to rank fast in Google is doing more of blogging than socializing. Though it’s good to spend some quality time on social media every day for social value is part of the metrics with which your site will be ranked in Search Engine Result Pages (SERPs).

Draw a Plan for Blogging

What are plans for blogging? Do you actually have plans for your daily blogging activities? If yes, let me congratulate for you’re well on your way to making your site skyrocket in search engines. You’re well on your way to becoming a successful and rocking blogger in the online world.

You don’t just wake up someday and expect things to happen. But you wake up and make things happen. One of the ways to make things happen in life is by drawing plans for your blogging activities.

Begin with Fundamentals, then Move to More Advanced Ideas Later

While just starting out, don’t aim at the beginning from the high levels. Don’t try to get overwhelmed to the extent of mounting much pressure on yourself which will likely make you lose morale along the way and get you seriously frustrated.

The best way is to start with the basics, and then grow steadily to the advanced levels with time. It really works out so far you’re willing to implement the working strategies. It depends on your determination to rock your business right from the scratch focusing on building your business on the solid fundamentals.

Write for Yourself First and for Others

Are you talented in writing? Whether you’re a talented writer or not, you must consider writing for yourself first, then for others. Aside from creating and building content frequently on your site, you still offer some write-ups for others.

Some great ways to write for others include submitting guest posts for other bloggers who have more traffic than you do. Other great ways to write for others include offering comments to other people’s websites.

Continue Posting

Have you recently stopped posting content on your site? This is the greatest way to experience a drastic fall in the bounce rate for your site and tons of traffic.

Research recently shows that Google places more favoritism these days on those blogs that produce content more frequently. So, to become successful this year, you must make sure you publish informative, useful, topically-relevant, highly engaging, and helpful posts on your site frequently, preferably every day.

Continue Engaging Your Audience

As you build out helpful and informative content on your blog from day to day, it would be great to always keep your audience engaged by asking them they leave their comments after they’ve read through the entire post.

You can improve your trust flow and overall Google PageRank simply by constantly receiving and responding to those who read and comment on any of your posts.

  1. Great insight I must say… Most bloggers feel spending tons of hours on social media is the best.. Inasmuch this will help them in terms of audience engagement, it will also spell doom on their ranking in SERPs…

    Talking about continuous and frequent posting, I believe this is the key to blogging.. But this however can be herculean if there is no monetary gratification.. That’s when passion comes into the picture…
    From my personal research, I’ve discovered that most successful bloggers and online business owners have one thing in common….. PASSION… That’s why I’m doing it with passion, I believe the top is not far

    Thanks for the tips….

    • Thanks for stopping by, Sammy! Much appreciated! I’m glad you mentioned the word “Passion” which is one of the key factors to success as far as blogging is concerned.

  2. Actually, social media distracts a lot and ever since I joined wealthy affiliates I disciplined myself so much not to spend up to 5minutes on social media each day and atimes I don’t even visit social media throughout the day.
    Now the question is, is it possible for one to be writing and posting contents everyday?

    • Thanks for your comment, Kenechi! Yes, socializing distracts a lot and this is why many do it for several hours every day yet without getting any meaningful result.

      Yes, it’s more than possible to create content every day for this is the best way to build SEO for a blog. The search engine bot is obliged to visit your site frequently when you publish content on an everyday basis. In order to achieve the goal of writing every day, you must be committed. Thanks for your valuable contribution to this conversation! Kudos!
