Saturday, February 07, 2015 Stef dela Cruz, MD 0 Comments

It’s Saturday! You can ignore the alarm clock, sleep in, and relax to your heart’s content. Of course, our 21-Day Smart Blogger Challenge continues. Don’t worry; as usual, today’s reading task will take just a moment.

Disclaimer: Our reading task today is a little more, uh, confrontational than usual. If you’re not used to people criticizing your blog, your feathers might end up a little ruffled. (Adopting a tough hide right now may do you a lot of good.)

Is your blog not earning at all? Here are 5 likely reasons.

If you don’t want to complete today’s reading task, which revolves around the 5 possible reasons your blog isn’t earning, you don’t have to. Postpone it for some other day if you wish.

Pick a day when you’re in a good mood. Pick a good hair day.

But if you’re ready for some tough love, take the plunge right now! Remember to take a deep breath. Remember that the things you are about to read are not supposed to be a personal attack directed at you and your blog.

Most of all, remember that when you get out of your comfort zone, you learn something new. For starters, you just might learn a few things or two about what you’re doing wrong with your blog!

Smart Blogger Challenge Day 7: Today’s reading task is ready!

I don’t want to take up more of your time than I should, so let’s proceed with today’s reading task. Good luck!

Day 7 Reading Task:
5 Reasons Your Blog Isn’t Earning

Today’s suggested reading may bring out feelings you’re not ready to handle, so do proceed with caution. Most of all, whatever you read, remember to be kind to yourself. After all, it’s Saturday!

Let whatever you learn today simmer in the backburner for a few days, so to speak. Allow your brain to process it better – don’t allow yourself to reject it altogether just because it makes you uncomfortable.

Most of all, enjoy your Saturday! Have fun with today’s Smart Blogger Challenge!
