How Blogging Is A Lot Like Dieting


In almost every class I teach, I tend to start with some version of this statement: blogging is a lot like dieting– don’t you think?

Here is what I mean: there are classes, blogs, conferences, books, consults to be had- All to share the secrets to building a successful and profitable blog. It’s becoming a big industry these days. And to be honest, it is amazing. To share what you love every day, work your own schedule, and make a great living from it- well, that is pretty special. I love getting to teach others how to do it.

That being said, blogging is not all sunshine and daisies. When it comes down to it, the real secret to building a blog is the same as the real secret to dieting. After you read all the books and hear all the success stories – it comes down to the daily effort of putting down the brownie and putting on the running shoes. Blogging as a business is A LOT of work. It is a daily commitment to making it happen. Saying no to immediate sweeter uses of your time and putting in the hard work; pound after pound, day after day.

And just like dieting, it is always worth it in the end. When you reach that place where your site is what you once envision it to be – it is so very worth it.

    • Giulia, totally! I think it is sometimes the most difficult at the beginning when blogging isn’t paying the bills because other more important things can take up so much time and energy. I had many seasons when I wanted to just stop blogging, but I am happy now that I stayed moving forward- even if it was slow at times.
