Dealing with success

Watching your numbers rise

In the blogging world, success is hard to come by, but when it does it can be exhilarating. It usually starts slow as you watch your page views gradually increase and your giveaways not only become more quality products, but the sheer number of entries begins to skyrocket.

It's possible that you may have even set and reached a goal you made at the beginning of your dad blogging journey. The last thing you want to do is take this success for granted and start sitting on your butt. Blogging is like a business and just because you've finally got a steady supply of customers doesn't mean you get to close the shop early.

It's easy to get sidetracked by success. I have seen many bloggers go from your average Joe to elitist because they found themselves in the midst of their 15 minutes of fame. Pretty soon, they start taking their friends and fellow bloggers for granted and even slow down on their blog.

They stop networking and reaching out to their fans because they think they don't need to anymore. They have arrived at their destination. In reality, the opposite it true. When you reach a level of success, then you are obligated to maintain that service or even go bigger.

If you slow down even a little, then most likely you're going to start losing those page views. You should never forget that you made that success through hard work and that it's going to take hard work to keep it.
