7. You do not know whether your content benefits readers.
Let's make a small test: can you tell how the life of the readers of your blog will change if within a year they apply what you publish? What specific, measurable results can you help them get?
It is not about the fact that readers get a sense of "deep moral satisfaction" from your content. It's about something else: for example, can you say that you readers have found 5 new customers for their business, applying the advice given by you?
8. You think you deserve more traffic than you get.
Does that annoy you that no one expresses gratitude to you for the valuable knowledge that you share with them for free?
With this, you need to learn how to live. Most popular bloggers have spent more than one year before they earned the right to the attention of others. In blogging, recognition comes with time. And this rule has almost no exceptions.
9. You have a scientific, engineering or another technical background.
Although it sounds terribly biased, practice shows that such a "shady" past can be a hindrance to being a good blogger. A possible reason for this state of affairs is that life in the scientific and technical world nurtures the habit of thinking in people within the framework of a technical task, as well as instills a certain measure of passivity and inability to think globally — all these 3 qualities are destructive for a publicist.
It is clear that involvement in these disciplines does not automatically make you unsuitable for blogging.
10. You do not read about how to write good content.
Running your blog and not reading any literature on creating high-quality content is the same as looking for hidden treasures without a map. Theoretically, of course, you can find them without a card, but you can hardly seriously place reliance on such fantastic luck.
By the way, reading this article, you are engaged in exactly what is said in this paragraph. But do not stop here.
11. You dedicate to reading less than 10 hours a week.
It is expected that in addition to writing a lot, you will have time and read a lot. Thanks to this, you will improve literary style (through the use of new metaphors, stories and stylistic techniques that you learn by reading other authors) — you will always stay up to date with everything that happens in the area you are covering.
