There are a lot of myths about blogging that are entirely not true.
For example, do you even money from it? Is it even a real job?(This post may contain Affiliate links, For more information please click check out my disclosure policy)
And honestly, I can tell you that blogging is a lot of work and that what some people will never understand.
Blogging myths comes from people who don’t understand what blogging is actually about or people who I have no interesting in finding a new source of making money. People will never understand anything about the hard work that all blogger must go through when it comes to posting, thinking of blogging ideas, thinking of ideas to entice new people to read our blog and more.
I still struggle to even explain to friend and family about what blogging is and what it means to me.
Here eight blogging myths you must ignore as a blogger:
1. Good money can’t be made from blogging
Blogging myths – no.1, not being able to make good enough money from blogging.
A lot of people believe this because plenty of bloggers starting out making no money at all. Bloggers who just started making money will not be making a significant amount.
At the start, it is not much, and it isn’t always consistent. All you have to do as a new blogger is remember that just because this is the outcome now, doesn’t mean you this will be outcome when you get more into blogging, because hard work always pays off in the end.
Don’t believe me, go and read some of your favourite bloggers’ income reports, and you will see the amount of them make at least $50,000 monthly.
2. Blogs on specific topics make the most money
This is one of the blogging myths has come up for me a few times because with some blogging niches making money can be quite hard. This is only because with some niches people are will spend more money than in other niches.
For instance, many people say it hard to earn money in niches like lifestyle because there are many niches and people want different things. People want to know about beauty; they will be willing to invest in buying products. So, it more comfortable for bloggers in the beauty niche to link products and make money when using those link them.
However, if you are blogging about lifestyle, it can be tough to sell to people because these people want profitable products that will help them transform their lives, so they won’t want to waste money on a product that isn’t worthwhile. But this doesn’t mean you can’t make money within this niche.
Plus, Bloggers can make considerable profit niches like lifestyle, blogging and more, but that doesn’t mean you will.
This all sum the point that, you should avoid and ignore these myths about blogging niches that make the most money. Because if you put your mind to it, you can make money in any topic you want.

3. Blogging is Free
Yes, blogging can be started on a free platform.
But if you want to make some serious money with blogging, then it definitely worth investing in your blog. You will need to pay for hosting, your domain name to start with. You will need to buy the products before talking about it on your blog and selling it to your readers.
If you want to get equipment for photos to take pictures with, whether you get into a position where you feel you are struggling, investing in blog e-courses/ coaching which will help you out even more.
Blogging can be free, but it worth investing money into it where you feel you can to help you as a blogger improve.
4. Blogging is easy
Blogging isn’t easy, and this is a myth that I find very hard to get to grips with. These myths come from people who don’t understand the process that a blogger has to go through daily.
Blogging allows you to be creative when it come to post, products and more, and this is something I find quite comfortable. But when this statement is made by people who don’t understand the other process blogging involves, as it’s not just blog post its more than just that it is putting together a website, making Ecourses, understanding the marketing of those blog post, having a Pinterest strategy and more. So, blogging itself isn’t as easy as most people think, and it hasn’t been easy for me
Anyone who says blogging is easy, either:
- Doesn’t understand blogging at all, and hasn’t been or done any blogging
- They are most probably talking about blogging overall. But doesn’t understand the difficult and the struggle of blogging.
5. All bloggers do is just blog
When I started blogging, I started because I wanted to start something of my own and to have something, I am allowed to be creative in.
All blogger will understand this, people that aren’t bloggers need to understand; blogging isn’t all bloggers do. There are many things bloggers do because it isn’t just blog post, we have to create graphics, proofread your work and taking photographs, creating a new product to provide to our viewers.
Not only do we have to keep UpToDate on all socials, we have to promote it across all of them.
We also have to learn some of the technology used behind blogging, understanding WordPress, installing and using different themes and adding plugins to your blog to make it better for you and your viewers.
As well as learning how to actually make money, how to get email subscriber, how to create new material and way more!

6. You need to be an expert in blogging
A lot of people think that starting your blog means you need to have some expertise in blogging. That’s definitely not the case because I was definitely not an expert on blogging at all.
While it is best to have some kind of knowledge that makes you able to talk about the blog topics, but I know you certainly don’t need to be an expert. Because when I first started I for sure was no expert. Blogs are read by people who to gain knowledge. You need to make it know you have experienced those things you are writing about.
It’s okay for you, not an expert when you are just starting because you can learn as you go along, more and more about blogging.
7. Posting more blogs means more traffic will come to your site
I made this mistake in the beginning; I was writing regularly posting, posting, posting and publishing more post thinking more people would read my blog. But I soon realised that I was wrong, blogging is a slow process it may be quicker for other and more gradual for some.
I have come to realise by posting more blogs; it doesn’t mean blog readers will come. There are so many ways you can get traffic by just posting once a week.

8. Blogging is dead
Of course, blogging is not dead… I personally think blogging is growing more and more every day. I think blogging is fantastic; it has helped me soo much, and it can help you become successful in many ways. There are many bloggers out there who make millions but live their lives.
Blogging is certainly not dead, certainly not in the UK – personally I feel like it is becoming something big. It may not be as big as in America or in other places.
Blogging is growing daily, and more people are getting into it. People still use Google to search for things and gain knowledge through checking blogging websites… So Blogging certainly isn’t dead.
