Disadvantages of Blogging as a full-time profession

Well, there are few disadvantages of using blogs that a blogger can face if he chooses to be a full-time blogger. Following are some common disadvantages of blogging as a full-time profession :-

1. You Will Start Feeling Lonely

One of the most common problems seen in full-time bloggers is they start feeling alone after a certain time. Full-time bloggers start missing their friends, colleagues and sometimes even family. Well, It’s a very bitter truth of blogging that it makes you feel lonely.

You need to work very hard, invest all your time and efforts in making your blog successful. You have to build a large blog network and find new work opportunities for your blog. You have to work hard and grow your network so that you can hire someone to manage your blog. Sometimes this can also lead to frustration.

Therefore, In case you are not able to manage your blog all alone then get a partner. Choose your blog partner wisely. I’ll advise you to get a room or a small office where you can work together on your blog.

You have to make sure that there is a perfect balance maintained between your real and online life. Simply talking to your Facebook friends is not considered to be socialized. Sometimes, Even I can’t manage to create a proper balance between my social and online life.

You should go out, meet your friends, spend time with them and give time to your family. Making a proper balance between your social and internet life will always help you to move ahead and achieve all your desired goals in your life.

2. Economic Condition

Well, There are bloggers too who struggle a lot with their economic condition. Choosing blogging as a full-time professional won’t work well in starting days.
Many bloggers out there don’t have a fixed source of income. They either start freelancing as a content writer or depend upon their partners for the need of money.

3. No Work While You Are not well

Getting ill is really a tough time for a blogger. A Blogger can’t work properly while he’s not doing well.

If you are not working with a blog partner then till the time you are ill, your blog will be dead. There will be no one to update your blog. Gradually, you will start loosing your blog traffic which will affect badly your blog earnings too.

Well, there’s no solution for such problems. In such conditions, you can either hire a content writer for updating your blog or can simply request your friend to do so.

“ The time you gets ill, Your blog gets dead. ”
4. Proper Schedule

Many bloggers don’t have a proper schedule for working on their blog. Sometimes they prefer working in the day time and sometimes during the night.

You should decide a proper working schedule for your work. The reason why I’m saying this is because it will be going to help you creating a balance between your real and social life.

By working anytime without any schedule, you sometimes miss the most important moments of your life which can also lead you to become antisocial.

5. Keep Learning

Blogging is all about being connected online. You should clear the doubts and answer the questions asked by other peoples. For this, you have to keep on reading new things daily. Reading must be a daily habit for a full-time blogger.
You should also keep learning new things for making your blog successful like learning SEO techniques, Copywriting, Internet Marketing etc.

Final Words

These were some of the most common advantages and disadvantages of blogs which a blogger has to face as a full-time profession.
