Boost Your Blogging Confidence and Write that Post

Lack of confidence is one of the reason why bloggers don’t publish their posts. Especially, in this age of information overload, we tend to gather much information without much effort about the needed topic or content interesting to us but due to lack of confidence your best post has never been published yet. We all struggle with the confidence at times when it comes to hitting the publish button. I have been blogging for more than four years and I battle the same force of struggle as you do, to feel confident. I have my doubt and worries similar to yours.

It’s a disease that wants you to stop writing. It wants you to stop researching, and gaining and sharing the knowledge with your readers. That is the definition of the “lack of confidence” in my mind.

However, you cannot lose in this battle of constant struggle. If you lose, means your blog is dead. Whether you are starting afresh, or blogging for a while, I’d advice you to continue on your journey. To win this battle is publish your next blog post out there and to do so you can begin by increasing your self-confidence now.

Take Action

Don’t just sit there thinking. Write that post. Write as many drafts as you can. Edit as many times you have to. Write it. Something that appears in your mind is same as being in the void. To make it an existing entity, in other words, to give it a life, you have to write that damn post!

Try something out of your comfort zone

Write or post about something that is non-related to or isn’t a part of your niche. Be creative. This will boost your confidence level and will amuse your audience. You might end getting learning something new and getting intrigue by the topic that it becomes a regular breakthrough in the queue of posts. Another advantage here is that it will give you time to prepare for your niche content.

Thinking You’re Ugly is Bad For You

Just as Meaghan Ramsay confronted a TED talk on the above headline about the body image that includes how we, as human beings, perceive our body image in our real lives, I want you to stop and notice your flow of thoughts whenever you are inspired by an idea or a topic or an experimentation you want to do on your blog. Don’t give too much attention to them. In fact, start to ignore them completely ASAP.

Focus on you what you are doing. You don’t what will happen in the future. You don’t how much feedback you are going t receive on your next blog post. To know all that, you have to give it a life of its own. Self-positive talk is the best piece of advice you or anyone can give to yourself. Train your mind to achieve the self-worthy belief and see the results.

For a reference you can Meaghan Ramsay’s TED talk here.

READ!

Reading is important for any writer or blogger. Read as much as you can. Feed your mind with the content that helps you raise your confidence level. It works. In the form of a book, I highly recommend “Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill”.

Also, take a look at these two bloggers:

They are great motivational writers and by sharing their own life experiences along with the intriguing tips on overcoming inner blocks and lack of confidence.

I highly recommend you start this article: How to train your brain to get what you really want

  1. Of course, as a retired professor, I underscore your prompt to read, read, read. The more one reads, the more one understands tone and style, good writing and pretentious prose, diction and appropriate word choices for different situations.

  2. Terrific post, and you are so right. I am someone who has struggled with selfconfidence all his life, so it can certainly be tough. My own blog is running for more than a year now, and it has become such an important part of my life that I could not live without it anymore. A really inspiring post with some great advice 😊

    1. I have my struggles with confidence too. Blogging has been helping me in terms of self improving and awareness. Not only that, but meeting and conversing awesome fellow bloggers and readers like you. 😊

      Thanks! I am glad you find this post useful.

  3. Nice post! Yesterday I was writing a short story and my lack of confidence made me feel that it doesn’t worth enough to be published, but I went on with it anyway… and today is my most liked story.

  4. I was just thinking about this recently! And wrote about it on my blog today.
    My whole life and approach to writing has been plagued by fear, lack of confidence and unpublished half-written drafts. No more! I would rather be an ugly blogger, rather than a non-existent blogger

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us 🙂

    1. I don’t think there’s a thing called ugly blogger. I believe everyone who blogs, deserves their own credit. It’s a hard thing to do when you are trying to be creative to engage your readers and at the same time being consistent. 🙂

  6. Interesting thoughts although can’t say I can relate as confidence has never been an issue for me with blogging. My barriers are time and lack of inspiration. I sometimes, well often, find myself in a place where I feel I should be writing but don’t actually want to. For a while I have felt that I’ve lost the joy of writing and it’s become just another chore on a long boring list of things I should be doing which is sad because I used to find it really inspiring and be proud of the things I wrote.
