Blogging can be a lonely experience in the early days when you are getting zero traffic and your family and friends are starting to question why you are blogging. It therefore helps to have the wisdom of those that have been successful in blogging.
It is from these guys that you can learn how to start a wordpress blog on bluehost for example.
I have therefore collected some blogging quotes from some of the most famous bloggers around below.
1. “If you want to create a blog, you don’t need a revolutionary idea. But, your blog should be focused on something specific.” – Neil Patel.
2. “These days you have only a few seconds to convince people that your blog is relevant to them. So you need to make it clear what your blog is about the moment they arrive. And you need to do it quickly.” – Darren Rowse.
3. “At the very least, don’t spend hours writing an amazing article or producing a video only to spend five minutes coming up with a title. Put in the effort, get your creative writing juices going, and give your content a better chance to succeed.” – Yaro Starak
4. “Lots of bloggers think they need to be unique, so they hunt for an audience no one else is serving, believing the lack of competition will put them on easy street. But really, they are screwing themselves. If there’s no one else around, who will link to you? Where are your readers going to come from? You should absolutely have a unique angle, but trying to build an audience from scratch is suicide for all but the most skilled and patient marketers.” – Jon Morrow
5. “Everyone who ever did anything had to start. Most people don’t begin with a grand vision. They start with an idea and an action. Through the process of doing they build something greater. No one thought Facebook would succeed to this level. The vast majority thought I couldn’t sell wine on the internet. No one believed that computers would be in every home. All ideas are considered insane until executed. The key is to just start.” – Gary Vaynerchuk
6. “If your content results in higher engagement metrics than any other, especially if it does so either A) consistently over time for a significant portion of searchers or B) temporarily because of a spike in searches seeking your particular content, it will rise to the top of the non-paid results.” –Rand Fishkin.
7. Blogging is definitely not over. But we do have to be smarter about how we go about doing it. And, see how we might be able to add other components to our blog, to our core, to expand our brand, expand our reach. And increase our authority. – Pat Flynn.
8. “Content marketing is really what this is all about. Blogging (in the sense of the software and the best practices that help content spread and community grow) is simply the centerpiece of the effective and efficient practice of online content marketing.” – Brian Clark.
9. “Blogging is competitive, so you’ll need to push your content out on as many platforms to ensure that you’ll get the most eyeballs. Setting up social accounts across the different platforms is really important.” – Neil Patel.
10. “Blogging is not for earning it’s about helping others with the knowledge that you have.” – Syed Faizan Ali.
11. “I made a decision to write for my readers, not to try to find more readers for my writing.” – Seth Godin.
12. “If people like you they will listen to you, but if they trust you they’ll do business with you.” – Zig Ziglar.
13. “Blogging, I love you no matter how out of fashion you are.” – Justine Larbalestier
14. “The price of (blogging) entry is just not giving up.” – Faith Mariah.
15. “A blog is only as interesting as the interest shown in others.” – Lee Odden.

17. “Where the internet is about availability of information, blogging is about making information creation available to anyone.” – George Siemens.

19. “You can’t plow a field simply by turning it over in your mind.” – Gordon B Hinckley.
20. “Almost all good writing begins with terrible first efforts. You need to start somewhere. Start by getting something – anything – down on paper. A friend of mine says that the first draft is the downdraft – you just get it down. The second draft is the updraft – you fix it up.” – Anne Lamott.
21. “The amazing thing about guest posting really is the number of people you will meet through it. This means either in the comments of your posts or simply the relationship with the person owning the blog.” – Leo Widrich.

25. “Opportunities don’t happen, you create them.” – Chris Grosser.
