Eager Enthusiasm

This entry is part 7 of the series Build a Better Blog


Hello again all you enthusiastic bloggers!

I am taking part in The Write Tribe Problogger October 2017 Blogging Challenge. So a special welcome to the other members of my sub-tribe. Hi guys!  This is the 2nd post in this challenge.

We’re working through the alphabet as we look at ways to build a better blog. Today we come to E for


If we want to turn our blogs into a site people will want to visit, we need to be enthusiastic. Enthusiastic, not just for the first few posts (easy to do) but enthusiastic when the going gets tough. (Like in an A to Z challenge when you reach the Q’s, the X’s and the Zs!)

So here are a few suggestions that may help.

  • Hang on to that enthusiasm you had in the beginning!

    That isn’t easy. You start with great enthusiasm, but after the first few posts you begin to wonder why you’re spending all the time writing something hardly anyone seems to read. For that reason, it’s great if you start to collect followers. Then you feel as if there’s a reason for writing. You also know someone will miss you if you fail to turn up!

  • Don’t judge your success by the number of comments you receive!

    One thing I’ve realised is that where people may read, they are slow to comment. So don’t judge the success of your blog by the number of comments you get. Then you will soon give up. Check how many people visit your posts on average, then go all out to increase that number. Also follow the suggestion in an earlier blog and ask for a response to your topic.
