Personally, when I felt like not writing at all, my readers came to my rescue. In one way the other, their actions gave me the much-needed confidence to carry out my blogging. They encouraged me in the following methods to continue blog writing.
1. Your Positive Feedback Inspired Me To Write
Feedback plays a significant role for a writer. It helps him to grow and learn. However, it is not possible to avoid negative comments. It is good for a blogger to realize the fact that he cannot keep everyone happy. There are always going to be people who will disagree with your views.
Of course, I went through this rough phase as well. But, I had the audience like you which actually acknowledged my work. So, my blogging hack is only to concentrate on positive comments and never allow myself to be distracted by negativity.
2. Readers’ Expectations Encouraged My Writing
Sometimes you don’t realize the real potential in yourself, but your audience does. They keep expecting quality content from you because they truly believe in you. However, some authors script for search engine while few write for Google and audience both.
This burden of expectation pushed me for an extra mile because I always wanted to live up to the expectation of my loved readers. At the same time, a writer should not feel undue pressure of these expectations; otherwise, he might not be able to come up with satisfactory results.
3. I Could Demand New Topic Through Comment Section
A writer’s life revolves around topics. In this respect, the two situations are very tricky for bloggers.
- When he has too many topics
- When he has completely run out of topics
Needless to say, I had to face these circumstances quite often in the early days. Fortunately, I had a very sincere audience which helped me get out of these scenarios. When I had too many thoughts, they told me what exactly they wanted me to write about. Likewise, when I was not having enough material in my head, they shared some valuable headings.
4. You Saw The Solution Of Your Problems In My Blogs
It is incredible how blogs become a vital part of people’s life. They religiously turn to the blogs in order to solve the difficulties of their life.
I received so many emotional emails from my viewers in which they wrote how much my write-ups meant to them. After that, my inbox was regularly stuffed with so many questions. They are asking me for tips and solutions. I literally felt over the moon. What could be a bigger motivation for you to script than knowing that your blogs are serving as a guide to your readers?
However, answering these many queries would not have been possible for me if I had no access to the following tools.
- Grammarly: As small grammatical mistakes could be very irritating, this tool is beneficial to detect such errors. Also, it keeps a check on the spellings as well.
- Hemingway: With the help of this tool, the text becomes very easy to read. In a nutshell, this simplifies the sentences for an average reader because readability score increases significantly.
- Object Me: It tracks spelling mistakes. Besides, it corrects issues regarding tenses and also detects punctuation and structure errors.
- Academist Help: This tool gives your text a touch of professionalism. You can add charts, graphs, and slides in your content to make it look more attractive. This way, the material becomes more engaging.
- Word Count Jet: This is a very productive tool to shorten the length of sentences. Sentences are tailored to a decent length so that readers can smoothly go through it.
- AustralianMaster: This tool gives your text a proper shape; introduction, body, and conclusion. Besides, it adds vocabulary into the content according to its subject. For suppose if the subject belongs to the commerce field, the software will automatically use the words related to that particular subject matter.
5. You Defended Me And My Views Against My Haters
At times a writer can be dishearten by the negative criticism which he does not even deserve. At that time, it is a blessing in disguise to have a reader-base which not only understands your point of view but also defends it. Like many other bloggers, I faced this dilemma as well.
People just appeared in the comment section and started bashing me for little to no reason. Obviously, I could not respond to these haters one by one personally. Then I realized my readers were doing this job for me. They stood by my side and defended my views better than me.
With the time I realized, many of my previous haters had turned into my silent admirers. It helped me to write freely because I knew I had the readers who would support me no matter what.
- Your Support And Love Were Constant Mean Of Encouragement
A blogger’s biggest motivation comes from the unconditional love and support from his readers. Your readers become very much part of your family. Whether it is your birthday, anniversary or anything, they always make it a point to wish you and pray for you.
My writings had life-changing impacts on some of my readers, so they always tap my back during my thick and thin. There were times when I lost faith myself, but my readers never allowed me to settle for permanent failure.
7. Your Knowledge Kept Me Going
When I started blogging, I knew only writing. But I needed more information about technology to become a prominent writer because there are a number of bloggers who write exceptionally well but don’t gather much public. The reason is they lack tech knowledge.
Luckily, my readers proved to be more tech-aware, and they shared articles and their own experience to upgrade my information. I was initially very low on tech expertise, and I owe all of this to my audience only.
The Audience is The Real Motivation:
“Readers Are Real Supporters.”
If your audience is with you and gives you inspirational feedbacks although, with criticism or appreciation, you will enhance your skills as well as viewers. Assuming that the search engine is the sole factor of raising the effectiveness, then you are committing one of the biggest mistakes.
