Up till now we have been discussing fairly practical issues on Blogging Insights. Let us break the mold today and talk about daydreams.
What are your “dreams” regarding your blog ?
Bags of money
I wish I could make some money from my blog. Although I would love to make it my primary source of income, I would be happy if it could at least “pay for itself “. I use the Personal Plan on WordPress and would love it if my blog could, at the very minimum, generate enough funds to pay for the annual fee. Currently, since I have opted for a paid plan, I am paying to blog.
The question of monetizing my blog remains a pipe dream however. My blog Stats and traffic are not enough to be able to make money from advertising. I have no goods or services to sell on my blog.
I cannot devote a big enough chunk of time regularly to blogging to improve this situation. Earning money from blogging therefore remains a dream.
I am highly impressed by people who take good photos and use them to illustrate their blog posts. Sadly , I am not adept at taking photos so I have to rely on free images available on the web. Luckily, lots of good images are available which I use quite often especially for “visual ” posts like my 5things series. Having said that, I still dream of being able to take professional quality images and photo edit them for my posts.
Quality and Quantity
I love to blog and would like to post quality content frequently and regularly. When I first launched my blog I used to write longer posts and used to take great pains with the quality as well as format of my content. But I could manage this for only one post a week.
I soon discovered that shorter posts “performed” much better on WordPress even if the content was less than stellar. My dream is to regularly post content that is rich in ideas, writing style and format.
Daydreams cost nothing except time so I could go on and on. Dreams are worthless if you don’t follow them with actions. Yet every great venture begins as a dream.
What are your dreams for your blog? I would love to know about them.
