What it Really Takes to be a Blogger
Although it’s quite true that it takes passion to be a blogger; from experience, I would say it takes determination to “really” be a blogger. Determination will be required, day in and day out, or week in and week out, or year in and year out, or whatever the case may be!
No matter the amount of passion you have, without determination you may give up whenever you experience a slump or “writer’s block”—a condition in which, for whatever reason, a blogger is not just able to be creative or motivated enough to write or blog posts for a period of time or indefinitely.
The business of being a blogger, through and through, is all about determination which is the quality or ability to be determined to do or achieve something. Determination is about having a considerable or high degree of firmness in regard to your purpose or what you want to achieve.
Even if you have outstanding talent and passion, without having enough determination to really work, it will be difficult for you to achieve success. Talent is only a starting point for success; but while working on your talent, determination is what you will need to keep you going even if you experience other challenges besides a slump or writer’s block.
Determination is what it takes to succeed in the business of blogging and any other endeavour
To what degree are you willing to be determined? If you lack determination, will you be willing enough to get a good amount of determination? Like writing, blogging is also a noble calling; but, blogging too is not so easy!
You need to make up your mind and decide: no matter the difficulty that may come your way, you will be determined enough to move forward or, at least, look for a way to move forward.
And like most things in life which are worth hustling for, when it comes to being a blogger, there are times when you just have to push some determination into your fingers, your brain, and your whole being!
When people say they want to be a blogger, don’t believe them until you see them actually walking the walk that real bloggers walk. Walking the walk requires having determination, even when, for whatever reason, you don’t feel like blogging!
If blogging is your dream, are you ready to do what it takes to be a blogger? Are you determined enough to blog, or write, or force some determination into your fingers, brain, and whole being so that you can really be the blogger you want to be?

Although blogging takes time and isn’t easy, it will be worth your time and effort if you really love it. Anything that requires determination is not for the faint-hearted. And anything that requires determination will require you to “hang in there” while you are creating a brand that resonates.
Yes, people need your voice and art, whether you realize it or not. And though you might not have all the followers, comments, or appreciation that you want at the moment, you don’t have to be discouraged or ever lose determination.
If you really love blogging, don’t allow a slump, writer’s block, or any feeling to keep you permanently away from blogging. This sounds easier than stated, but you can do it. Your blogging journey may experience a lot of difficulty, barrier, and struggle, but it’s okay, as long as you remain determined, persevere, keep going, and don’t give up!
