Bloggers don't let bloggers blog until they've written 20+ posts... "Why You Should Write 20 Posts Before You Launch Your Blog"

Problogger - Why You Should Write 20 Posts Before You Launch Your Blog

If you have not yet started a blog, stop. Write 20 to 30 posts before you launch.

It may sound counter-intuitive, but this strategy may just be the thing to help you succeed as a blogger.

It stops you from quitting

Here is the number one reason most bloggers fail: they lose the will to continue.

Anyone who has ever started a blog will tell you that it is downright demoralizing to start a blog. When no one visits your blog, no one accepts your guest posts, and advertising proves too expensive to make a viable traffic generation strategy, you feel lost and destroyed.


It helps you build and maintain momentum on your blog

Guest posting is one of the most powerful ways to build your blog. It allows you to get your name on established blogs, and gives you a taste of what it would be like to have a popular blog—not to mention attracting high-converting traffic to your own blog.


It helps you get paying gigs

Finally, posting on your blog and writing guest posts for other blogs may even bring you paying gigs.

When someone is paying you good money to write posts, you need to able to deliver high quality content under tight deadlines. This means you need a lot of practise before you start. Writing 20 or 30 posts helps you build your writing ability.


I know, I know... two days, two Blogging posts! It's like I'm a blogger or something! LOL


I thought this great advice. Too many blogs come and go and when they go the blogger seems to feel guilty about it. Well this advice lets you test your blogging gene to see if you have it in you before you even start. It lets you "fail early" but in a good way... :)
