20 Quotes For Bloggers Who Need Inspiration

“Don’t focus on having a great blog. Focus on producing a blog that’s great for your readers.” – Brian Clark

When you think about your blog, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the big picture. You can start comparing your blog to everything else that’s out there and get so consumed by the competition that you forget who the blog is really about. It’s about YOU and your readers! If you set your mind to creating a platform that’s valuable to your readers, success will naturally follow. 

“There’s a lot of information out there for free, so you’ve got to figure out what makes your information different.” – Matt Wolfe

The internet is full of information. There are thousands of blogs in your same niche, so you have to decide how you’re going to be unique. How can your answer to a need or question be better than any others? Really take time to understand what makes you YOU and what makes your content stand out! 

“The currency of blogging is authenticity and trust.” – Jason Calacanis

Never look at your blog just as business or just as a persona. Viewing your brand that way won’t lead to a loyal following that engages and grows with you. The key to establishing a true connection with your target audience is authenticity. If readers can trust you, they will continually come back for more content and drive your monetization streams. 

“I’ve long advised that bloggers seeking to make money from blogging spread their interests across multiple revenue streams so as not to put all their eggs in one basket.” – Darren Rowse

There are lots of ways to monetize a blog. You may have one way in your head, but it’s a great idea to diversify. Even though you own your platform, there are a lot of external factors that can affect your monetization streams. Whether it’s a change in an affiliate program’s policy, an update to Google’s algorithms, or a change in your own health, your blog business can suffer if all your income comes from one strategy. 

“One of the best ways to sabotage content is to not tie it to your goals. Know why you’re creating content.” – Ellen Gomes

Understanding your brand goals is SO important. Without a good understanding of what you’re trying to do, it’s hard to reach blog milestones. Figure out how you want to impact your audience and how you want to personally profit from your blog, then let everything drive toward those goals. Every blog post should be intentional and authentic. If you’re not sure what your goals are, here are some great blog goals for beginners

“Your first blog posts won’t be perfect, but you just have to do it. You have to start somewhere.” – Shane Barker

If you haven’t started your blog yet or you have just recently started your blog and are feeling insecure. DON’T! No one is perfect the minute they start any artistic endeavor. It’s a process of constantly growing and improving. If you wait to be 100% ready and “qualified,” you’ll never get started. Take that first step and just believe in yourself! 

“What you do after you create your content is what truly counts.” – Gary Vaynerchuk

We’ve obviously been talking a lot about the fact that high-quality content is EVERYTHING. However, you’ve got to do something with it! Once it’s posted, you need a good strategy of reaching people, whether that’s through social media, search engine optimization, networking, or all three! Make sure you plan how you’ll find your audience and connect with them. 

“When you brand yourself properly, the competition becomes irrelevant.” – Dan Schawbel

Niching down is everything! When you can create something totally your own, competition really does become irrelevant. Other blogs may compliment what you offer, but if no one else is doing it like you, you’ll hold on to your followers no matter what. If you’re still trying to figure this out, here’s a post on how to find a niche for your blog

“Blogging is hard because of the grind required to stay interesting and relevant.” – Sufia Tippu

Y’all, it’s hard out there. Even with a strong focus on SEO and a great marketing strategy, there’s just a lot competing for readers’ attention. You always need to keep things fresh and exciting to draw followers back to you again and again. When things are feeling stale and it seems like people are losing interest, think of ways to make your blog more engaging

“I’m convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.” – Steve Jobs

Blogging is not a get-rich-quick thing—and it’s not passive income either! This serious work and it’s going to take a few years at least to make enough money to go full time. The truth is, most people won’t stick with it. If you can stay focused and motivated through the first few years, your brand can see huge success!

“Making money from blogging requires you to do only two things: drive a lot of traffic, then maximize the income from that traffic.” – John Chow

In blogging, traffic is EV-ERY-THING. If you can generate consistent, compounding traffic, you’ll never be short of readers . . . which means you’ll never be short of monetization avenues. So, ensure you do research on search engine optimization or hire an SEO service. SEO drives 1000% more traffic than organic social media, so it’s by far the best strategy to get the biggest ROI on the smallest investment! 

“Blogging is good for your career. A well-executed blog sets you apart as an expert in your field.” – Penelope Trunk 

Okay, but what if blogging isn’t your whole thing? THIS QUOTE IS FOR YOU. Blogging is essential for ANY company who wants to see gains in customers, brand awareness, credibility, and more. Businesses that upload blog posts 1-2 per month have 67% more sales opportunities than businesses without. WHOA! It truly sets your company apart from competitors! Here’s more on why blogging is important for businesses

“It’s not about ideas. It’s about making ideas happen.” – Scott Belsky

We can write in our dream journal allllll day about what we want our blog to be someday. However, those ideas aren’t worth much until they’re out there on the world wide web. As Mr. Shia Lebouf says: “Don’t let your dreams be dreams. JUST DO IT!” (Bonus quote for you.) 

“It should feel genuinely good to earn income from your blog—you should be driven by a healthy ambition to succeed. If your blog provides genuine value, you fully deserve to earn income from it.” – Steve Pavlina

This is a big one. There’s this stigma around making money on art that’s totally not okay. You can LOVE what you’re doing and want to profit from it. Just like musicians want to sell a lot of concert tickets and authors want to sell a lot of books, it’s okay if you want to earn a living from your blog! If you put time, talent, and passion into it, you DESERVE to get paid. Don’t let anyone tell you differently! 

“The only reason I’ve been able to have a successful blog and build a business around it, is because I published on it twice a week for three years. It really is all about the consistency.” – James Clear

Seriously! Consistency is key. It’s going to take time to build this thing into a full time career. Focus on posting quality content 1-5 times a week over anything else. If you can get through the grind of posting for a few years without any payoff, you can make it! That grind is worth it and totally necessary to achieve blogging success! 

“Begin by figuring out the platforms that your ideal readers are on, and figuring out the ways you can reach them there.” – Chase Diamond

We all know SEO is the best way to reach readers. However, social media is a great additional tool to not only find new readers, but foster a community. However, don’t go making accounts on every social channel—it’s way too much to manage! Think about where your readers are already hanging out, and find them there. (Psst . . . Pinterest is usually one of the best platforms to start on depending on your niche!) 

“Your ultimate consumers are your users, not search engines.” – Google’s SEO Starter Guide

As great as SEO is, don’t forget that your audience are your followers, NOT search engines. We can get soooo caught up in the specifics of search engine optimization that we lose our sense of true direction. Don’t write to just play the game and rank high on the SERPs, write to make a real impact!  

“If you want to continually grow your blog, you need to learn to blog on a consistent basis.”- Neil Patel 

Never. stop. learning. This is so important! The blogging industry, your audience, and your niche are ALWAYS changing. You’ve got to keep up. Don’t ever get complacent with your blog, even when things are going well. Keep looking for areas to improve and grow. 

“Think in small, incremental steps that build momentum. If you start now, in two or three years from now, you might be in a really great place.” – Steli Efti

Like we said . . . this blogging thing can be a grind when you get started. It can feel super overwhelming when you look at where you are now and where you want to get to. But, remember every huge blog was built one step at a time! Don’t get discouraged as you carry on your journey!
