Why Extroverts Don’t Succeed as Bloggers


Extroverts are people who love fun, they socialize, entertain, laugh, travel and do everything that life can bring—they simply don’t like spending time alone. The sad thing is that an extrovert rarely succeeds as a blogger. One attribute every successful blogger has is that they are introverts, unless they have employed people to create content and manage their blogs.

The reason extroverts won’t succeed as bloggers is that they don’t like spending time alone, they like being in the company of others. Blogging is demanding, sometimes too demanding that even finding time to meet family members is difficult. For an extrovert who likes spending time with people rather than alone in a room, blogging is not an area they can succeed in.

The only way you can survive in blogging is to cut down the number of hours you spend with people and concentrate on writing and posting content for your blog. It will take approximately 6-16 hours every day for one to develop a successful blog.

Any serious blogger who has been interviewed before would confess that being an introvert is a plus for bloggers. Even if one is not an introvert, they will be forced to have less fun and put more efforts in developing content and eventually adopt the name introvert.

The worst challenge bloggers get is when they are employed at the same time practice blogging. This way one has to micromanage their time so as to find a balance between their full time job and blogging. If one is not able to leave the full time job, they are forced to work into midnight. For instance, they could wake up at 4 am, write one or two articles and post them before embarking on the full time job. Alternatively, they perform the full time job and blog at night.

Generally, one can’t succeed as a blogger without sacrificing time on social events and activities. In a week, a serious blogger should have free time on weekends and at night.

Here is how you should spend time as a blogger:

5 am to 6.30 am—waking up

7 am to 9 am—first article

9.30 am to 10 am—second article

10.30 am to 12.30 p.m—third article

12.3 p.m to 2 p.m—Break

2.30 p.m to 3.30 p.m-fourth article

4 p.m to 5.30 p.m—fifth article

From 5 p.m until 7.p.m, research.

That is the time table for a full time blogger. But for a part time blogger, it’s a bit trick, you have to look for time to write 2 to 3 article per week.
