What are the biggest achievement and the worst failure in your blogging journey so far?

Dear All,

Season’s Greetings to all my fellow bloggers and readers. I am here today with a roundup post on blogging, a bit delayed one! Due to numerous hindrances, I could not stick to the promise given to my fellow blogging friends.

I am so glad that I could make it today, I appreciate my fellow bloggers who responded to my request.

One thing I found in common with many of the bloggers, is that most of them in one accord say the best thing that happened in their blogging journey is: They could get or make a good friendship or relationship with a good number of like-minded people.

In fact, I too can relate very well with them that in my blogging journey I could make a good rapport with many numbers of like-minded people from around the world.  That is one of the greatest achievements in my blogging journey too!  And I am sure many of our readers too agree with this.

Following is the question I put forward to my fellow bloggers:

What are the best and the worst things in your blogging journey so far? A roundup post by Ariel Click To Tweet

The answers are given below along with their pictures and their links. The responses are placed here in alphabetic order.  I have been given an opportunity to air the experiences of some of the newbie bloggers too along with the experienced ones.

Along with the experience shared by Mi Muba, the money blogger from Pakistan sends a note too in this regard.  I would like to add that here as an intro to this post.  He says and I Quote:

“The Struggle is the lifeblood of hope and without hope, you can be anything but successful in your life. So keep struggling is the best thing ever in my life and in my blogging journey more particularly.

This is my power of hope that despite working for the last four years and yet to make a big breakthrough.  I am working as if I am getting a huge round of applause from everywhere. No doubt the support, love, guidance, and encouragement I am getting from everywhere are commendable, but my habit of keeping struggling never let me take a pause of even while.

Well, these things are a little conceptual so I share here what are the best and worst things in my blogging journey in exact terms.”

Best things:  First of all, my vast experience from the offline world is a great support to me while blogging and I understand the intricacies of every aspect of blogging quite easily.

Secondly, starting a blog in a green niche that has the least competition and highest demand, soon after three months of my establishing it I got 500 daily visitors on it. So in the beginning, I never had any kind of frustration that usually makes people quit blogging.

The third best thing in my blogging journey is my timely decision to start the money blog that connected me with so many great bloggers as with the green blog I was in connection with those who were an influencer of the green sector but not of blogging field. So my connection with several pro bloggers helped me explore and learn so many amazing things about blogging that boosted my confidence to become a blogging consultant and I got so many clients in the very beginning.

Worst things:  The first worst thing was my least focusing on technical aspects of blogging that stopped me from creating wonderful blog design and impressive layout of my posts that is why my many posts despite having quite unique info are still unnoticed by many.Mi Muba r

Secondly, my not strictly sticking to my strategy and sometimes becoming so philosophical and conceptual was a big hurdle to create contents that go viral in a short time as compare to very detailed content that take a little long time to create their space.

Last and not the least is more reliance on text contents and not trying diversity which now I am trying to cover up but my several posts are devoid of it.”   ~ Mi Muba,  Be A Money Blogger

I once again express my heartfelt thanks to all the dear ones who wholeheartedly send their answers/experiences to make this post a success!  As said the responses are placed here below in the alphabetic order.  Thank you for your valuable time here on this page.

I request my readers to share their valuable experiences in blogging (good and bad) in the comment box below.

May you all have a happy vacation.

Keep visiting, Keep sharing!

Read on others’ experiences!!

HERE IS THE LINK:   Behind-the-Scenes: 52 Blogger’s Best Achievements & Worst Mistakes  Thanks


The biggest achievement in blogging has been the great relationships I have formed.Biggest Achievement

It has allowed me to help people and build great bonds. Blogging also has given me the great opportunity to grow my business as it has helped establish myself as a thought leader within my industry.

The worst thing has been making sure I set enough time aside to create the quality posts my audience deserves. Blogs are not something you can half-heartedly throw together. That’s not good for me, and it’s not good for my audience.

biggest achievementMy biggest achievement in blogging was becoming a Payoneer brand ambassador in India in 2015. This was a super big deal for me at that time, as I left my job and I needed a solid company to work with, Payoneer came to me at the right time.

I made my personal brand out of Payoneer & got many clients from this deal. Payoneer did the Facebook ads through which people got to know me more and clients trusted me.

And now the worst failure was my digital marketing training institute I opened at Jaipur India, that was the bad partnership with my friend, I lost around 20 lacs in that deal.  My business faced a huge financial hit and I was literally on the verge of bankruptcy.

So I learn whenever you are doing partnership do the partnership on a trial basis like analyze your business for first few months before getting into a full agreement.

~ Jitendra Vaswani, founder of Bloggersideas


biggest achievementMy biggest achievement with blogging has been the ability to provide value to readers, as well as our businesses through our content efforts. We’ve been able to provide a ton of valuable information to our target demographic and in return, we were rewarded with their business. Being able to help people and grow from it is the goal of most good companies and we have been able to do that through blogging is definitely something we’re proud of.

The biggest failure with blogging came early on and it was from not blogging enough. We treated our blog as a place to update existing customers on news rather than help drive valuable, educational material to both existing and potential customers. Had we know then what we know now, we would’ve put a stronger emphasis on blogging high-quality, educational content.   Jimmy Rodrigues   ~ 3dcart

biggest achievementIn my 2 years of blogging journey. I experienced many ups and downs. The Biggest Achievement about blogging there are no limits, no boundaries and no restrictions to sharing your ideas. You are your own boss. It is something that you can proudly tell everyone that it’s yours.

Well worst thing happened to me was poor keyword selection for my first blog and it failed terribly. Despite this, I learned from that failure and I am running an SEO Optimization blog and one secret blog that is making money for me.

Well, I have learned and suggest everyone to start your blog now. You will learn unexpected things.  ~ Abhishek Jain   ~RustyBlogger

biggest achievementThe Biggest Achievement about blogging:  In blogging the possibilities are endless. Being an inspirational blogger, it gives me the freedom to create a positive impact on people all over the globe, help them live their dreams and overcome their negativity to create a happy & successful life.

If you have a message to with the like-minded people all over the globe or an experience to share to educate and inspire others or build a business to serve other businesses or clients, blogging is the foundation.

The most beautiful part is if you start a blog and create quality content on a consistent basis, then you can live your dream life while having freedom and fortune.

Worst Thing About the blog:  I haven’t found anything worse yet, because still so much of opportunities are there that I am always busy exploring the possibilities rather than finding the difficulty.

Moreover, the blogosphere is filled with so many good people who are always ready to share and help the best solutions and resources which will never make you feel bad if you stay focused and keep looking for solutions. ~ Ajay Mishra

biggest achievementThe biggest achievement of working online is that I’ve reached financial freedom.  Moreover, it’s fantastic to manage my working hours, while still having a lot of time for my hobbies.

The worst thing is that I spend a lot in front of my computer, which is somehow unhealthy.   Luckily, I love sports, so every day I do some physical activity in the gym, or jogging, or else, skydiving.  ~Erik Emanuelli ~Erik

The best thing about working online is that I've reached the financial freedom ~ Erik Click To Tweet



biggest achievementThere is a lot of biggest achievement in blogging like enhancing our writing skills, improving our knowledge, successfully running an online business, establishing ourselves as an expert in a particular field and numerous other benefits.

But, the most important benefit I like about blogging is networking with people from different parts of the world. I consider that is the best thing about my blogging journey so far.

Now the worst thing about blogging: It is very difficult to find the worst thing about blogging than the best thing as there are very fewer things that can be considered as the worst thing in blogging.

For me, the only worst thing that I encountered so far is the lack of time spending with family members and friends when we deeply involve in blogging related activities. ~ Reji Stephenson

biggest achievementI got into blogging 19 months ago. My biggest mistake was that for the first 12 months I didn’t have my own blog. I was ghostwriting for another blogger. He was my only client and I didn’t have a reputation in the blogosphere so I stayed with him, although I knew I was underpaid.

My biggest achievement was that I started my own blog and monetized my skills faster than I imagined. Through blogger outreach, I got to connect with many influencers who became my clients. Have confidence in yourself and give value to others and you will be able to accomplish all your goals.

My biggest achievement was that I started my own blog and monetized my skills faster than I imagined. Click To Tweet

The biggest achievement in my blogging journey so far has been that I have made so many new friends who share common ideologies and thoughts and help each other’s grow professionally and personally. I am a membebiggest achievementr of many blogging communities and get to learn so much about so many different fields and areas, which were almost alien to me. Blogging has also improved my writing capabilities because I guess practice makes a man perfect.

The worst part of my journey so far has to be the time and effort one needs to put. At times it’s depressing to realize that I have so few readers and followers and shares and comments. I sometimes even doubt my capabilities, but I know if I put my 100% success is sure to come.  ~Dr.Arpita



What I like most about blogging is the camaraderie and the sense of community I feel from being involved with so many other bloggers over the course of numerous years – combined with the excitement of making new friends that share my passion is the biggest achievement to me.
The downside is the amount of time and effort required to maintain those relationships and how it can distract from other goals (i.e. being published). It is a delicate balance…and one that I continue to struggle with.
~ DL Hammons

biggest achievementThe worst thing in my blogging journey so far is probably the first stage when you have to build your audience and readership from scratch. It can be discouraging when you try hard to create great content with little exposure.

On the other hand, being able to share and learn from others great folks out there totally worth the effort and I can very well say that this is my biggest achievement in blogging :-)  ~Anh Nguyen



biggest achievementBlogging has been my passion since the beginning. I love every part of it. I enjoyed both the best and worst things. Both Failure and Success are great because success moments gave me the motivation to work even harder, and Failure moments taught me many things that helped me grow well over time.

But, still, as you gave me an opportunity to share these things of my life, so I am sharing them here.

Following are the biggest achievement in my blogging journey so far:

–   When so many friends said that a BlogSpot blog cannot get Adsense, and I made it happen.   Though it was not a great thing it was really a happy moment for me.

–   The second best moment I remember is that when my blog migrated from Blogspot to WordPress.  At that time, this was kind of a big deal for me.

–  The third best moment is when we got Page Rank 4 directly. In those days, getting good Page Rank was a big thing.   These are a few best moments I can remind. However, there are many other small and big good things happened in my blogging journey.

Following are the Worst things in my blogging journey:

–  I got an outbound link penalty from Google 2 times for my blog because we linked to advertisers in unnatural ways. These two were the worst things, and I worked very hard to get rid of the penalty. Finally, I was able to get the penalty revoked.   There are no worse things I can remind because, by God’s grace, everything is going great. ~ Atish Ranjan ~

Barry Kort r

The biggest achievement in blogging is that the act of composing a blog article is a good way for me to organize and record my own thinking on a topic.

The worst thing is that some of my articles attract respondents who are jerks and trolls who have to be dealt with.

~ Barry Kort ~MicroMuse



biggest achievement


The biggest achievement that has come out of my blogging journey over the past year is the connections I have made with both readers and other bloggers. The worst thing has been a lack of focus — my content serves no one person nor solves one specific problem, but all that will be changing in the coming months. My new focus will be on helping those who seek to build their own online service-based business. ~Brent Jones


biggest achievementMy biggest achievement or let me put it this way that, my favorite things about blogging so far:  1. Helping others. I have been constantly amazed by how many people around the world have been helped by The Wonder of Tech. There is nothing better for me than hearing from a reader how I’ve helped them by introducing them to the tech that makes their lives easier.

2. Building friendships. One pleasant surprise of blogging is the incredible friendships I have made in the blogosphere. Most fellow bloggers I’ve never met, but I feel very close to them as we have shared and supported each other through our blogging journey together. I had the pleasure of meeting Adrienne Smith in person about a year and a half ago and she is just as wonderful in person as she is online.

3. Discovering cool new tech. One of the most fun things about blogging is discovering new tech that can change lives. When I get to chat with the CEO of an up and coming Tech Company I get to hear the enthusiasm that helped bring the tech to market and learn about how a dream was turned into reality. I love being a part of that process to help my readers learn about this new tech and help entrepreneurs spread the word about their inventions.

Least favorite things about blogging:

1. The tech. I know that sounds strange but tech issues for my website drive me nuts. My website may be down or my email subscribers don’t get notifications of new articles published. A plugin update crashes my site or a new theme doesn’t work with a plugin. Broken links must be cleaned up which can take hours of my time. I would much rather write about tech than deal with the tech issues of my website.

2. Hackers. All I’m trying to do is help people learn about tech. I don’t sell ads, have affiliate links or try to make money off of The Wonder of Tech. Yet hackers want to log in and attack my blog. Fortunately, my dear friend Ashvini Kumar Saxena came up with a very clever way to thwart hackers that has worked beautifully so far.

3. Spammers. Daily I get about a dozen spammers who slip through the multiple anti-spammer filters I’ve set up. I don’t approve their comments for publication so you’d think that they would give up, but no, they keep on coming. They are a total waste of my time.” ~ Carolyn Nicander Mohr  ~


biggest achievementYikes! I could write a book on this subject.   The best thing or the biggest achievement about my blogging journey is that I have met so many wonderful people, had I not been a Blogger, we would never have met, nor would I have met so many other wonderful friends from all over the world.

Now the worst thing! HUM? To be honest, I think it has to do with sitting all the time, I have never been a good sitter and have made a standing desk at the bar, but it just doesn’t cut it for too long.  ~ Chery Schemidt ~


biggest achievementI cannot choose what is the biggest achievement so far, because there are two things that are just so amazing.

One is the incredible network of supportive and sincere people I have met, people who work beyond parochial borders and petty local politics, people who can see that we are all part of one human race and really don’t care what car you drive, how dark your complexion or whether you work in your PJs.

But I also just love to write.  I just cannot help it.  I am an addict, which might be why I love writing posts like – because many of them are true (although, I’m not telling which ones).  So is it the people or the writing?  I cannot decide.

As to what I dislike the most on my blogging journey that one is easy to tell!  Tech glitches.  Boo.  Hiss.  Go away, tech glitches.  Just last week I faced a white screen on three blogs, all because of some infection.

And even while trying to do backups before updating WordPress and cleaning up plugins, I was hit again.  Go away tech glitches.  Leave me alone!~ David Leonhard ~TheHappyGuy

biggest achievement
Donna Merril

The worst thing about my blogging journey was getting started.

There were so many things I needed to learn. I especially struggled to negotiate a steep learning curve concerning technical things related to tasks like setting up my first blog, adding plugins and widgets, getting a domain, and setting up hosting.

Then I had to figure out how to develop valuable content and present it in an interesting manner. This presented more technical challenges like learning to do videos, images and such. This was all unfamiliar territory to me.

The biggest achievement in my blogging journey has been helping other people follow in my footsteps.

I started along this path by writing articles about blogging. In time, I created several information products on the topic, including a 7 hour, multi-modular video and demo tutorial called “Blogging Magic.”

I’ve even added several levels of coaching that have given me the opportunity to work with my clients individually, one-on-one to guide them along their own path of building a blogging business.

I’ve always loved helping people, and my favorite part of blogging has been helping them build a profitable online business with their own blog.  ~Donna Merrill ~


The worbiggest achievementst part is, I hate that people see my blogging time as though I am just busy playing and wasting my time with my laptop.

They know blogging is a lucrative business, but they do not know how much hard work involved behind it.

And my biggest achievement? Oh, it has to be the fact that I can impact so many lives at the click of the publish button. That is elating and I don’t plan to give that up for anything. I love the recognition too.  ~ Elsieisy  ~


biggest achievementSome of the worst things that happened to me are:

1.   I lacked the understanding of what blogging really means and how to go about it and succeed.

2. No one was ready to tell me the truth; all they presented me was all sorts of eBooks that are saying the same things over and over again.

3. I didn’t know how well to drive traffic to my blog.

And some of the good things or biggest achievement that happened to me are:

1. The day I got my first AdSense payment, it was a great booster to my blogging career.

2. When some notable bloggers began commenting on my blogs.

3. When a notable blogger confessed to me that so many things they write on their blogs are not real.

This changed my mindset. He advised me to work out a method for myself and my blogging career.  ~Embebu Bon


biggest achievementThe best that has come from my blogging is the true connections I have developed with many people.

By reading my regular blog posts, many people have learned about who I am and what I do that is unique.  Their comments help me to understand the way they think and feel and that helps me to have a sense of the impact I am making.

Many clients have found me because they have read something I have written.  By writing consistently, without anyone editing, I have developed a freer feeling about writing.

The more I write, the easier it becomes.  I created completely different blog sites for different focus points – one for Healthy Baby Boomers, one for Marketing Our Practices for therapists and coaches, one for creating love and one as my authority site to showcase all the work I have done to help people to heal their relationships through love.

I have run into only a few negative moments when someone responded with a comment that was not pleasant or when someone I know had a personal reaction to something I wrote.

But I must say that after blogging for many years, those negative incidents could be counted on the fingers of one hand.  Overall, blogging has been an avenue and a platform for sharing what I know and what I value with the world. ~Dr. Erica

biggest achievementI have to say that when I started blogging, I did not even know what it is I found out about blogging through the encouragement of Lesly Federici, Monna Ellithorpe, and Dr. Erica Goodstone, we have been a small group having hangouts before the Idea of PAC came and the two Ladies Lesly and Monna got busy to make it happen.

I was not even good at writing English, I hope I am a bit better now. I got online through a course, which promised a lot, but did not deliver.

But looking back I do not regret, because I learned to know my best friend and he too helped me a lot to improve writing through daily email communication.

I can say we help each other now for years and through him, I had a whole new world opening for me, which I not yet had discovered and made it possible to express myself.

So blogging became a kind of adventure for me. I cannot say that I had bad experiences, I am grateful to say, I met many  loving people, like you Philip and …. ~Erika R Mohssen-Beyk

Best things in B. Journey- Failures. Before writing the anti-NSA algorithm, which technically gave me the financial stability to take on blogging as a full-time job, I failed at blogging DRAMATICALLY.

More than 3 blogs, totally doomed. Why they’re the best things? Because I believe, life is all about attitude. So instead of taking them as a “the end” mark, I took them as lessons. From the experiencbiggest achievemente, mistakes, and knowledge, now I try to share whatever I know of the B-world.

2. Worst thing- Competition and comparison. I’ve seriously seen people rank their blogs in WEEKS.

At first, comparing myself to them de-motivated me, led me to serious depressions, and so I temporarily quit my career. I thought I was no good, but well, apparently, I was wrong.

Also, from a personal viewpoint, the worst thing that happened was on a blog called “cyber code”, I worked my ass off BUT the tragedy was, I didn’t have the money (10$ approx) to renew the domain.

The third point should be, “bad advice”. Trust me, 70% of online blog-gurus take you as competition even before you enter the game, and taking their advice is the worst possible decision bloggers make.      ~Evan Derek ~


biggest achievementThe best things in my blogging journey, so far, is the time and freedom I have. I can work from anywhere I want, and work on my own hours. I also get to help and inspire people from all over the world.

I don’t really have anything to say about the “worst things in my blogging journey” – but I would say this; building strong self-discipline to do the necessary work and take massive consistent action, was a big challenge to overcome.~Freddy Gandarilla


Gayle rOne of the best things about blogging is getting to interact with so many people. Several of my offline friendships first developed online. The friendships have enriched my life. My phone rings if I’m offline for a few days and so will theirs. We hold each other accountable that way.  I have also had people stop me who recognize me from my blog. They will comment on this article and that. It’s always humbling to know that words have the power to impact so many people. The relationships with others are better than blogging income or the freedom that writing brings – although those are pretty good too.

The downside is that people have no clue how much work goes on behind the scenes. It takes hours to write a blog post or a script, edits a video and does all the grunt work that’s required. Then there are the lost internet connections and cafes that close just as the video finishes uploading. These are small things though. I can’t imagine what I would be doing if I wasn’t blogging. ~ Gayle Crabtree  ~YouHavebeenReviewed

cutmypic(11)The best thing to happen in my blogging journey is getting recognition as one of the top bloggers in India and a popular blogger of the blogosphere. I didn’t expect to reach so far when I started blogging. Therefore, these unexpected turn of events were a sweet surprise as well as a humbling experience.

However, the worst of my blogging journey has been the inability to start off my new blog, as planned. I had been trying for a perfect start, but then things did not happen as desired due to certain unexpected events, and I had to postpone the plans. However, I’m gradually working on it.

Just as in life, the blogging journey too has its ups and downs, and I learned that one must try to find a balance and anchor in the hope that all will end well, and keep making the efforts. Consistency is the key, and it will level out the ups and downs to create a smooth and memorable blogging journey. :-)  ~ Harleena Singh ~AhaNOW


Harsh agarwalBest Thing: Blogging helped me discover myself & let me experience life the best way possible. I couldn’t imagine my life to be the same with 9-6 job type.

Worst thing: Finding work-life balance was a task in between, as when you passionate about something that becomes your life. After 7 years of blogging, I believe I’m on the verge of finding that perfect balance. The credit for this goes to my partner-in-crime @Shalkit who helped me see the life from a new perspective.   ~Harsh Agrawal ~


Hassaan Khan“I might have done a good job when it comes to creating helpful and engaging content. I’ve seen some of my blog posts ranked on the first page of major search engines. The good thing is I’ve made myself a DECISION MAKER. I make a decision and follow it. Sometimes, they really work. The only thing disturbs me is that at some point I get stuck between two favorite things to drop down the least favorite and go with the best one, for example, in niche markets, entrepreneurial ideas etc.

And, the good thing is, I end up with a decision, whether wrong or right. I don’t keep things that way like forever. This is what I am. But, I have to fix the certainty issue in the personality because it’s not good for my business. I have to be more certain with my decision making.”~Hassaan


heme unoopWORST: I might substitute the word ‘worst’ with ‘unpleasant’. The unpleasant blogging experiences have taught me to be patient and work towards finding a solution instead of getting worked up about it.

My unpleasant blogging experience so far has been my commenting system. I have experimenting with numerous commenting systems but none seemed to work for me.

I’ve had issues either with installation, loading time and some of my loyal readers have even admitted hating the commenting system I was using. This resulted in many unhappy readers who read my posts and left without commenting.

My readers definitely helped me sort out this issue and I eventually to revert back to my default commenting system and it is working in my favor.

BEST:  Redesigning my blog has been the best thing that happened so far.

I met an experienced web designer/blogger via a blog community and she was keen to give my blog a facelift. I sent her my requirements and the output was exactly what I was looking for.

Revamping my site has generated a lot of traffic and subscribers. Bounce rate is a lot lower than it used to be.

I’ve had a number of wonderful feedback of how branded and attractive the site actually looks now. It was worth the time, effort and money.  ~ Hema Unoop


cutmypic(5)The best thing in my blogging journey is that I am able to make a difference with my message plus blogging has given me the awesome opportunity to meet people and build a relationship with so many pro bloggers.

As for the worst thing in my blogging journey, It was when I picked the wrong hosting company that made me spend so much money and made my site so inaccessible and slow.  ~Ikechi Awazi ~Be A Light to the World

Jagdeesh Mohan Kumar Nambiar (Jag) rThe best thing about blogging is transferring the experienced knowledge to readers and the worst things is change or revise in information due to web search and technology improvements. New readers’ vs old information could be odd with the current trend or technology. There could be mismatch in features and factors. Again it can be tackled by reference / cite content or any mentions about future updates like subjected to change or so.    ~Jagdeesh Kumar Nambiar (Jag)



cutmypic(3)I personally don’t like negativity, so let’s get the negatives out of the way first.

I would say the thing I dislike the most is spamming. It is one of the most irritating things I have experienced. I went through a time on my personal blog where I constantly started receiving spam comments. Every time I would visit my back office to work on my blog, there would be tons and tons of spam comments.

A friend recommended a plug-in called Antispam Bee. We installed it, and the problem was eliminated.

The biggest like is when I have written a post and I receive positive feedback. What I am referring to is for example after I have written one of my posts, I received a comment from a reader about how timely my post was. It addressed the exact issue she was dealing with at the time.

There is no way for me to know what any specific individual is dealing with when writing a new post. When I then receive comments such as these, I know that God is working through me and I am grateful that I was available for God to address a problem in someone’s life.   ~Jaco Alberts ~  Your Mind Renewed 


CDSGVDEThe best thing I have experienced in my blogging journey thus far, has been discovering my own authenticity. It has taken me years to realize that I’m not like other people. I’m not like other bloggers. My goals are different, my motivations… and what I want OUT of blogging doesn’t align with any other blogger I know.

What did that mean?  It meant that I had to learn to stop doing what I THOUGHT readers wanted and to start being who I really am. Once I did that, success found me in days. Literally days.

The worst thing in my blogging experience for the past 10 years has been my struggle with developing an email list. I’ve followed programs, did what the pro’s say to do, and even purchased the best tools in the business… but it has never worked for me.

I keep trying, but my 2016 resolution, being a popular author, is to find my 1000 fans and start from there. That means interacting and providing the best stories I can offer… and though no one can guarantee success, I’ve learned over time that you can consistently do the right things to increase your chances of success.   ~Jaime D. Buckley  ~


Joy EMy worst moment, as a very inexperienced and naive blogger, was the day I found that my FIVE blogs had been badly hacked on the same day and the hosting company hadn’t been taking backups. I had innocently imagined that I didn’t need to worry about security because “No-one could be bothered to hack my little blogs!” With hindsight, I shouldn’t have had five blogs, but as a complete newbie I had been very badly misinformed and told that it was “really easy to make money blogging”. If only….

The best thing that has happened is that I met and have learned so much from some wonderful bloggers. What they have shown me has helped me go from wondering what on earth I had to write about in my first blog post, to have been mentioned by some very successful bloggers – including yourself – and recently having been invited to be an Expert Author on PAC.  ~Joy Healey ~


Justin Philps r“After getting introduced to the blogging arena back in 2014, learned something which I always dreamed of ‘Money making Online’.  The best thing was I could learn and experiment with different money-making tactics because of the thirst to explore more and has been connected to many pro-bloggers in industry.

Since I started my job as a developer, I could hardly get time to work on my blogs, and my wish to start brand blog wasn’t possible. Hardly I could interact with my friends online after a busy 9 hours schedule which is the worst part in my blogging journey. Well due to lack of time, started with niche blogs for a faster approach to earn quickly with automation, which I add as +1 to my best blogging journey.”   ~Justin Philip ~ MoneyMakingeBooks


Jyothi RBest Thing:  Connecting with like-minded people like Harleena Mam, Ankit Singla, Krishna Moorthy D, Mohd Arif, Nirmala Santhakumar, Sanu Siddharth, at the right time is the best thing for me. I learned lots of things from these bloggers. Sometimes we choose the wrong path if nobody guides us. Getting good guidance is more than anything for me.
Worst Thing:  1). I offer services to clients also, but I never ask to upfront payment since I believe in long term relationships and getting good work delivered. But one of my clients cheated me, and he didn’t pay a single penny after delivering complete work. I lost more than 2K $.
2). Poor Keyword selection and On-page optimization of blog posts. As most newbie bloggers do in the beginning. I also did the same thing, and it affected me a lot.~Jyothi Chuhan ~ UpdateLand

Krishana Moorthy D r“It was really frustrating and demotivating that nobody was there to help me and I consider that as the worst thing happened ever in my blogging journey so far. The best thing is that when you see the wonderful messages from your readers “Hey Krishna, your article helped me a lot, your blog is an awesome man” and that really counts :) ”  ~Krishna Moorthy D ~



Elizabeth Laiza King of e r‘I’ve been blogging since 2011 on different topics from fashion, business, lifestyle, the inspiration for personal development. When I’m blogging, I come alive! One of the best things about blogging is that it allows me to be myself, share my thoughts, inspire people and also learn from them.

I love that I get to work from anywhere while also connecting with amazing people around the globe. Blogging has also given me some really good opportunities (speaking engagements, especially) and I continue to learn new ways to create valuable content for my audience. In fact, blogging helps me to keep growing and unlocks some hidden potentials in me.

While I don’t have any “worst things” that have happened in my blogging year, blogging can be a bit challenging sometimes.

While they might be different for other people, mine is definitely more about finding a good balance between blogging and life in general, thinking about getting more traffic and blogging while creating a niche for your blog.

But I’ve developed a mindset of adding value over struggling with views, developing the right strategy to reach my audience and also blogging from my heart versus doing what every other person is doing. ”

~Laiza King~


cutmypic(7)“I would say the worst thing in my blogging career was an inadequate tool, I started blogging not having a PC and it really was hell using a mobile device and frequenting the café.

The best thing that has happened so far in this journey was knowing that what I had passion for pays. Yes, blogging pays and trust me, I’m cool with that.”~Larry Frank ~


Worst Thing: Technical fails – a plugin almost took down the entire site and I learned when choosing a webhost to choose one available with 24/7 support. Things will happen and you don’t want your site down for any length of time. (I had a reseller from a different time zone and that made it difficult for technical support.)

Best thing: The people – I met so many wonderful people and made new friendships via blogging.  Many of the people are also willing to help out and I’ve enjoyed helping others out too via my experiences. I’ve also learned so much and I consider my blog as part of my resume now.   Lisa Sicard ~

Lorraine RegulyLike every other blogger, my blogging journey has been filled with many ups and downs. There are a lot of things I like about blogging, including the connections I have made with others (both other bloggers as well as my audience) and the ability to share my knowledge and experiences with others.

I actually have two BEST things I’d like to mention regarding my blogging journey. The first is that I have written many posts that have hit the #1 spot in Google Search.

The second is that I was able to found and grow a freelancing business, Wording Well, which allows me to help others in need. As a certified teacher, this pleases me greatly — I love helping others!
I don’t really have any “WORST” or negative things to mention. The only thing I would like to say is that I sometimes have a hard time with some of the technical aspects.
For example, I recently faced an issue with my site wherein my formatted posts lost all of their formattings. I still am unsure as to WHY this happened.
I ended up having to copy them all, one by one, into a Word document, trash the post, and then re-do each post as new one using the same content. It’s things like this that frustrate and irk me!
Aside from technical problems (which every blogger has faced at some point or another), I love blogging and all it entails!   ~ Lorraine Reguly
Malsamy Jacob rMy best blogging experience is when there is a lot of response in the form of comments and discussion. My worst experience is the opposite – when no one reads or comments, or comments without reading through properly.   ~ Malsawmi Jacob ~EmyStoryLand

ETWTGLet’s start with the worst thing: the worst thing that happened to me during my blogging journey thus far was making the mistake of undervaluing my blog… I formed a joint venture partnership where I was getting the short end of the stick, and that wasted a lot of my time.

And another thing is that sometimes it’s been difficult for me to manage time for my blog.

However, I learned from that experience, and the best thing has been all of the inspiring friends I have met who have really pushed me to do better and to reach higher. ~Mary Fernandez ~

Maxwell Ivey

The best thing about blogging is being able to inspire, motivate, and encourage people all around the world. Just by sitting at my laptop and sharing my thoughts and experiences as a blind entrepreneur I show people what they can accomplish if they only start taking action.

Whenever I do something challenging for the first time it shows that I am willing to walk my talk. It proves that I don’t just encourage them to move out of their comfort zone.

I do it myself. And nothing feels better than when I get a comment or an email from someone saying how I inspired them to take risks and move forward on their own journey. My most common response is if Max can do it then why can’t I.

The worst thing about blogging is all the things that go along with having a blog. Here is a shortlist. In addition to coming up with ideas for new posts, writing them, editing them, and pressing publish; you also have to share on social media, mention them in your email newsletter, and reply to comments.

You have to worry about search engine optimization and site security. You have to reply to comments on your blog as well as to replies from your social media posts.

In my case, I also recruit and contribute to guest blog posts, magazine articles, and radio shows. All of these also require promoting and following upon.

There are always new social media networks to keep up with and new methods to learn like infographics, squeeze pages, hover cards, and the like. And as a blind computer user, a lot of these websites are not easily accessible with a screen reader.

Add to that having written an ebook and working on completing a second one. Becoming a successful blogger, podcaster, or online business owner takes so much more work than most people realize.

I hope people don’t think I’m complaining. As a blind person, the world of blogging offers me a way to reach people that I wouldn’t be able to if I had to depend on finding ways to meet and interact with them in person.

It allows me to compete with sighted people in a way that doesn’t really exist in many places outside of the internet and online businesses.

And as we become even more dependent on an information-based economy it gives me hope for my future and that of the blind and visually impaired people coming along behind me. I’m so thankful for the work.

~Maxwell Ivey ~The Blind


Mairaj rWell according to me it is an excellent way to inspire others. The gre atest obsession in my blogging journey is that it gives me more than my expectations i.e.

·        Knowledge

·        Help me out to strengthen my writing skills.

·        Makes my own identity in the blogosphere.   ~ Mohammad Mairaj  ~EtutorialBlog


Monna Ellithorpe rI would have to say that the worst thing in my blogging journey so far is going to my site one morning, a site that I had worked so many hours creating had been hacked and the majority of the content was just GONE and I stared at a screen with a skull and crossbones that said YOU’VE BEEN HACKED.”  I did have a backup but it was not recent. So the lesson learned was to always and constantly back up your blogging content.  I am still at a loss as to what purpose this serves to anyone other than just being plain mean.  ~ Monna Ellithorpe

Neil Patel rThe best part of my blogging journey has been helping other people. The worst part is that it has become such a huge time suck that I spend at least 3 to 4 hours a day on my blog.   ~Neil Patel~



Nikhil Saini rMy passion for blogging is the best thing. It made me courageous and I got able to leave my 10 to 7 job to be a full-time blogger. I explored many things and met with some great bloggers. It is the best part of my blogging journey so far.

The worst part is, I didn’t get any mentor and hadn’t money even for paying for small expenses. For buying hosting for my blog, I had to borrow the money. ~Nikhil Saini  ~MyQuickIdea.Com


Nisha R my experience the thing about blogging is the flexible time schedule; I can work anytime I want, from anywhere I want. The ‘no cubicle’ career was always my dream.

And as far as the worst things go, I think the financial uncertainty of the beginning period is really hard to deal with. You must keep your expectation down and work diligently during this time to monetize your blog in the long run. ~Nisha Pandey


SamGetting to meet fellow bloggers in a big eco-system as blogging. Impacting and getting impacted upon, these among many others are the best moment of my blogging journey.

Of course, there are some hard times, some of which are not having a PC to write my piece, nor connection to publish them if at all I get means of writing it.

For several months, I was literally using my phone to browse and trust me it was pretty frustrating.

Also, it took me several months to make my first $100 and those were really frustrating and hard times when I have to pay for hosting after running around to get money from external sources because my blog wasn’t paying me.

I’m glad that I’ve gone past those times though and I’m sure my earnings can always be better. So that’s it.  ~Sam Adeyinka  ~Samuelkermis

Peter Baskerville Quore r“The best experience I have had in my blogging journey so far is the connection and establishment of a diverse network of fellow learners and knowledge sharers.  These people are not just generous with their knowledge, but they freely give of their time wherever possible to care and to help.

The worst experience I have found is in investing heavily in an open knowledge-sharing platform only to suffer from its closure due to shifting corporate priorities. Google Knol was such a disappointment.

However, on balance, my blogging experience has been hugely rewarding for me, especially when readers take the time to thank me for helping them understand concepts that were previously beyond them.”

I am currently active on a question and answer site (Quora), where I share what I have learned from my experience and learn what others have learned from theirs.  ~ Peter Baskerville ~Peter Baskerville


cutmypic(2)The best thing about blogging is being able to write to my heart content without worrying about any backlash. On top of that, it is also a great way to share knowledge.

The bad thing about blogging is that it takes up a lot of time. Common blogging practises doesn’t work anymore. Tons of research needed to have a successful blog. ~Reginald Chan ~

Rohan rThe best thing about blogging is you get to connect with like-minded writers and readers. When I see all my stats, it’s unbelievable that Internet/social media helps you reach so many people and gives you so many opportunities to help and inspire people in so many ways.
In my opinion, there is nothing worst about blogging. It’s just that blogging is the most misunderstood and most challenging career option one can possibly choose if they are planning to be a professional blogger.
~Rohan Chaubey ~Be Rohanlicious.


Ryan BiddulphI haven’t had any worst things, because I have largely enjoyed the journey, but as for the best things, wow. I love the freedom. I like being free to blog from anywhere in the world and also to free my audience so that they too can blog from paradise.

That’s the dream part of blogging, for me. As for practical stuff I just love to write. I churn out 6,000 words on most days and publish one, 7,000-word post each week. I also am publishing book #11 in the Blogging from Paradise library soon because hey; if you love writing, you gotta write, right? :-)  ~Ryan Budalph ~BloggingFromParadise


The worst parts of my blogging experiences occur when I take the time to comment on someone else’s blog and they decide not to publish my comments because they don’t want to show anyone’s opinions except those who agree with theirs.

I dislike that because they wasted my time and disrespected my perspectives. They are unethical, cowardly and unprofessional not to include dissenting opinions on their site so I unfollow them.

The best occasions of my blogging experiences are the times that I receive thoughtful, considered comments or questions in response to my posts and/or to my comments on others’ posts. I enjoy the engagement, the poking at one’s perspectives and the respectful conversations that ensue and I learn a lot.     ~Sally Ember


SANU YESUDASANAs the being attunes to the mystical winds of divine intervention, I draw inspiration from the burst of creativity that I see in all endeavors be it literary, musical, dance or other forms…………. I scribble a lot…………erratically about social, cultural and current economic scenarios.

My most memorable blogging experience:   In May 2014, I had blogged about the acclaimed Malayalam Film Director, screenwriter and author P Padmarajan titled “Radhalakshmiyude Gangharvanu”

One of my friends had sent a printed hard copy of the blog to Mrs. Radhalakshmi Padmarajan. She, as well as her son Anandapadmanaphan on receipt of the copy, called to appreciate the blog.

She was thrilled that I had read her book at a stretch on a flight to Chennai and subsequently quoted from her book as well as added my own outlook and emotions. She made a special mention that my talent stemmed from my multifaceted father Cartoonist Yesudasan.

My most hated blogging moments:  India was ablaze with the Nirbhaya rape incident. A year after the incident, I blogged  “Nirbhayam Oru Varsham“……!  I was upset that the accused in this despicable crime had not been hanged to death immediately. The rage and helplessness in me knew no bounds.  ~Sanu Yesudas ~


Sharad GuptaThe Best thing is: I am fortunate to achieve the first thing up to a satisfactory level.  I love to see people are having a great interest in my blog.

In fact, I am blessed with a combo of love and likes of fellow bloggers too!   Even some good companies are impressed with my writing style, blog name and the hard work I am doing especially for new bloggers.

The best thing is so far in my blogging life, I am able to fetch sponsored posts for my fellow bloggers too from some companies.  Some of the prestigious companies have given me the authority to check and approve sponsored posts on my behalf.

The worst thing is, I think, I do not get enough visitors like SEO experts to my blog. Still, I am lacking to generate huge traffic from search engines.   ~Sharad Gupta


Sherman Smith rLet’s start off with the worst: I say the worst part of the blogging journey was that I didn’t have any support to start off with friends or family. So I took the bull by the horn and ran with it.

I never really like to write, but blogging grew on me which brings us to the best of my blogging journey.

The best part is just learning how to build a blog and engaging with other bloggers who are on that same journey. When you find the right people to engage with, you not only learn a lot, but you get all types of support to help you along your journey!    ~Sherman Smith ~


cutmypic (1)For me, the best and worst things in my blogging journey are tightly related. The worst part was when I first started blogging and I felt totally isolated. Sure, there were some very well-known bloggers who were teaching courses and offering advice but it was a challenge to really connect on a personal level.

The best part was becoming a part of a wonderful (and caring) blogging community. Building mutually beneficial relationships is really the key to growing a successful blog. We can’t do it all alone. We need the help and support of others.  ~Sherryl Perry


Siddaiah ThirupatiFirst, I will share the worst thing in my blogging journey.  Some months back, I was not regular in taking my backup data, one day while updating my new WordPress version, immediately my data files crashed and I was not able to login to my WordPress admin and my blog was showing 504 errors to visitors, I don’t know what to do that time because I am new to blogging and have not much knowledge in technical side, later BlueHost customer support helped to retrieve my data,  that was the most horrible time for me, I thought I lost all my hard work.

My happiest moment.  When I received my first blog income 34$ through PayPal account for my work, and whenever I see my keywords on the google first page.  I think I have not tasted the happiest moment yet in my blogging journey as of now.  ~Siddiah Tirupathi


Spiros Kakos rI believe that for both questions the answer is the same: The fact that this journey is something you take on your own. The fact that in this journey you are alone.

This is something that lets you express yourself better and more openly. By blogging you can have the opportunity to really let the world know who you are, to actually expose yourself to the world and let them understand you better which in the process you try to understand the world better yourself.

On the other hand, blogging can be painful in away. You write on your own, there is no immediate dialogue with others in the process of drafting a new blog post (comments from visitors do not really count as “dialogue”). It’s a more or less a solitary process. A process which can be hard, but lovely at the same time! :-) ~Spiros Kakos  ~Harmonia Philosophica


Susane 3I have a few instances where I do a lot of thorough research through trusted resources. I have come to trust them but didn’t realize in an instance or two they had NOT done their homework and were regurgitating old information that is no longer valid. I needed to research THEIR resources, not rely on them. That’s on ME and my responsibility.

What happens then is we all look like fools as I always link back their original post.

The other item is lazy posters. These are the people who simply copy and paste a popular post to ride on that SEO value and audience. They don’t link back to the original, they don’t cite the reasons they are copying/pasting and give the illusion it is THEIR content. They post the full post rather than a respectful excerpt that links back to the original post AND the author. LAZY!   ~Susan Finch ~


cutmypic(14)Blogging for me has been full of roller-coaster rides. In my blogging journey spanning 2 years, I have seen a number of highs and lows. Starting with the best things, I was lucky to meet and network with many pro bloggers during my initial days. Of them, Harleena Singh (of Aha!NOW) and Atish Ranjan of Tectricksworld are very important people.

Being friends with such nice and down to earth experts has its own perks. They taught me the ins and outs of the industry, which would have taken years without them.

My second best thing is when one of the leading Facebook influencers, Mari Smith shared my post on Facebook marketing tips on Twitter and Facebook. The traffic she sent me literally crashed my site and bumped my email list. Having a blog on social media marketing, the leads she sent was a treasure. Now I have a name in the social media niche and part of the credit goes to influencers like Mari Smith.

Of the worst nightmares, I would say the time I wanted to shift my blog from blogger to WordPress. I had no exact resource at the time to guide me and worst even was the fact that I had no credit card to buy a hosting.

Had it not been Atish Bro’s help, I fear I would still be behind. This process has so much impact on me that I have actually created a “step by step guide to making a blog”  so that it could help newbies to actually understand what the process is.  A word to the newbie bloggers:

Build a relationship with other bloggers (especially influencers). Staying in the cocoon will never help you to bloom like a flower.

  • Share tips and be ready to help fellow bloggers. I have gotten some amazing friends along this journey.
  • When in difficulty, ask for help. I hesitated a lot during my initial days and this prevented me to have a full-fledged blog. In the online world, almost everyone is kind to offer help when asked.  ~ Swadhin Agrawal ~


Sylviane Nuccio rThe best thing in my blogging journey is that I’ve learned a lot, met some great bloggers, and being able to promote my business and reach out to my target market with my blog. I can’t say that I want to call anything, the worst thing. Blogging is a learning journey. ~Sylviane Nuccio ~Sylviane



Ted Rubin rThe best part of my blogging journey is the ability to share my ideas, the reach it affords me and the relationships it helps to create.

The worst part is the constant need to always be producing more content and do it on a regular basis.  Welcome to the ‘Age of Influence,’ where anyone can build an audience and effect change, advocate brands, build relationships and make a difference.    ~Ted Rubin ~


MJ rThe best things in my blogging journey so far are the many things I learn from all of the wonderful bloggers I’ve met over the years. It’s always good to discover new perspectives and get to know people from around the world.

I am truly blessed to open my heart, soul, and mind to the experience of blogging, especially since, as it turns out, I receive so much more than I could ever possibly give to those who follow me.

The worst things are the little technological bumps along the way. I simply don’t have a clue about many of them, and figuring out how to manage them sometimes disturbs me more than I’d like to admit. Still, there is a gift in the learning curve here, and I appreciate the opportunity to learn and grow. ~M J Joachim ~M J Joachim’s Writings


Vashishata KapoorIt has been more than 11 months in my blogging career and the worst thing I got in this was Google AdSense.

Yes, it seems pretty shocking but Google Adsense was something which did not work for me. Publishing Tutorials while I was still learning was one more worst thing which lacked perfection and professionalism in my writing in the start.

I have earned some dollars and valuable connections (like you) over the internet by blogging and that’s what I treat as the best thing which happened to me ever. All my followers and fans are the gems I discovered.    ~Vashishtha Kapoor ~ Vashishtha Kapoor.Com


biggest achievementMy best experience is I get to express myself on my blogs. I also believe that my content is often deep, forces the reader to self-introspect, hence long, and requires patience… hence certainly useful.

My worst experience is this content never seems to reach the right people (Not everybody needs to like my writing, but I am sure there are many who will be able to connect with my writing/communication level). ‘Dumbing down’ or using ‘cliché content’ is not a compromise I am ready for – since my authenticity will be lost.

This is sad, because I am trying my best to share my learnings, but cannot reach the people who might need it :)   Take my TEDx video for instance.

I believe it will be very helpful for all kinds of people. TEDx is a great brand too.  But despite good content and brand, it has a total of 1300 views only. And I do not understand how to crack that.  ~ Vijayraj Kamat

biggest achievementThe worst part of my blogging experience is when I just started and trying to find ideas and content. I was not sure what would appeal to the mass of people as against what would not, nor where to content. It was purely a matter of trial and error.

Getting persons to read, comment and share my content was extremely challenging even when I thought I had written my ‘epic’ post. No doubt this caused doubt and uncertainty as to whether I should continue. The most challenge though was to find the time to write. Only my passion for writing allowed me to reach this far.

The best part is when I write a piece of content and it is commented on by many people who also shared it. This is a good feeling and helped to build my confidence and eagerness to write more on a consistent basis.

The fact that I am in so many online communities has also provided some level of training in terms of writing styles, pitfalls to avoid content curation and delivery. I thank my blogging friends for their valuable shares and suggestions.~Vinton Samms


As blogging is all about making connections and sharing things, I am glad to connect with lovely people in my blogging journey.
By blogging, I have gained four BEST things so far
1. Bond with wonderful people 2. Energy to expose my passion 3. Support from every blogger. 4. Trust with my readers.
In the beginning, I did face many problems in installing the blog. Everything was new to me. But, I don’t want to tag them as my ‘worst’ days. From contacting the web-hosting support staff to experimenting with CSS codes, I learned a lot from these crazy days.
 ~Yatin Khulbe ~


biggest achievementThere are a lot of best things about blogging like enhancing our writing skills, improving our knowledge, successfully running an online business, establishing ourselves as an expert in a particular field and numerous other benefits.

But, the most important benefit I like about blogging is networking with people from different parts of the world. I consider that is the best thing about my blogging journey so far.

Now the worst thing about blogging. It is actually very difficult to find the worst thing about blogging than the best thing as there are very fewer things that can be considered as the worst thing in blogging.

For me, the only worst thing that I encountered so far is the lack of time spending with family members and friends when we deeply involve in blogging related activities. ~ Yvonne Wilson ~Empowerment Moments

  1. Hey Phil

    So most of the bloggers declared the best thing as getting so many wonderful and amazing friends while networking and this is surely the proof of universal truth that man (human being) is a social animal and can never live like a hermit.

    We come in this world not to live alone but to live with others. It is the nature of man that he wants to look and be looked as well. Talk to and listen to as well. Love and be loved by others as well. That is why be it an online world or the offline world one can’t live inorganically and organic life with real pleasure and true interaction is must to spend a successful life.

    The most amazing thing in the whole post is that all of them have shared the worst things which they have realized and have overcome on it. That shows if someone blogs consistently nothing remains bad for him.
    Thanks a lot Phil for including me in this list of amazing bloggers out of whom many of them are a big inspiration to me.

    I am sure newbie and struggling bloggers would learn a lot from the good and bad experiences of these experienced bloggers to make their blogging journey easier and more successful.

    Have a more successful new year ahead.

  2. Hi Philip,

    What an awesome list of great bloggers and I feel very honored to be among them. There are so many similarities in each bloggers journey but also so many differences.

    But the one constant that I read from each blogger was their determination to continue despite mistakes, lack of support, technical problems, etc.; no matter what. While reading through your awesome list and their answers, I detected in each blogger’s post that it just made them better at what they wanted to do and the desire to keep on learning and teaching others.

    Thank you, Philip

  4. Hi Philip ,
    what a good work you did with this post ,
    I think it is a big help to many bloggers who
    start and get discouraged,to see that others
    had to be patient as well and had all kind of
    difficulties. It shows that blogging like everything
    else needs hard work dedication and persistence.
    This post will encourage many who think it may not
    work, by seeing others had the same or similar problems.
    And good, there is help many here are ready to help others.
    And the best of all is, everybody here agrees that it is beautiful
    to meet so many great people from all over the world, I included.
    Thank you Phillip and all here for telling your stories.

    Hi Philip

    I must say that this is a very cool post and you nailed it be asking bloggers to share their experience about blogging.

    I enjoyed reading the experience bloggers have had with blogging and it does show that blogging takes a lot of hard work plus there are glitches here and there that bloggers experience like tech issues and security.

    Thanks for mentioning my name on this post and I am honored to be listed among the pros. Thanks for sharing and have an awesome week.

    December 18, 2015
    • Hi Ikechi,

      What a joy to see you here again :-)

      Yes, no doubt, blogging is indeed a tedious job!

      but it is the other way round!!

      It is indeed a great joy to add you too in this list
      you deserved to be in. Thanks for sharing your
      valuable experiences with my readers here.
      Keep sharing

  6. Hi Phil,

    Awesome indeed! :)

    I loved the idea of creating such a wonderful roundup post, and thanks so much for adding my two cents into it as well. Actually, I think we all learn from experience, and whether it’s the good or bad, it always teaches us something in return, and that is the what matters, as it’s the essence of blogging, isn’t it?

    I didn’t know we could write long, or I would have (knowing me!). Nevertheless, this is a wonderful resource for every blogger, especially the newbies who are keen to learn about the know-how of blogging.

    Thanks so much for putting in all the hard work and effort, which I know must have taken a lot of time, but it surely pays! Have a nice weekend, and Happy Holidays as well :)

    • Hi Harleena,
      Thank you so much for your valuable time again here with this amazing insightful feedbac.
      Yes, as you said, our experiences as well as others will teach us some lessons. I am sure
      the experiences shared by the bloggers here is indeed a guide to many especially to the newbies.

      This roundup posts like this are really a time consuming one and needs more hard work. Yes, it
      surely pays! my traffic on these days increased tremendously. but sad to note that even many of the
      members who contributed for this post never returned with a feedback, I think that is the very sad part of
      this type of posts.

      Thanks for your valuable time to drop in even in these busy season.

      Keep up the good work

      Have a wonderful and profitable time of blogging ahead.

      Best Regards

    Hi Philip Sir,

    Its been a great opportunity to be in the list with top-bloggers, and I sincerely thank you for same. As the year is coming to end, and a perfect question to bloggers about their journey throughout the year is what I felt a post to be successful. As I got to read some experiences from the list, most being full-time blogger as happy with it, from those boring 9-5 job.

    This post would help me, members in the list and the readers of the blog to know and interact with these bloggers. Im sure coming years would be great, and wish you all a successful and profitable year 2016.
    Happy New Year in advance :)

    Thanks so much for including my “highs and lows” of blogging. I feel so much better having seen that so many really dislike and struggle with the technical side of blogging and it’s not just me tearing my hair out.

    This was a great collection of bloggers sharing what’s the worst and best things about blogging. And it couldn’t have come at a better time of the year where we’re winding down 2015 and about to bring in 2016. It looks like one thing we all have in coming is the networking with other great, genuine bloggers. I really can’t thank all the bloggers I connected with and all of their support. Without you and others, my blog wouldn’t be where it is today. That’s the great thing about connecting with others. With the synergy, we all get to the point where we deemed as impossible before we got into the blogosphere! Thanks for including me with these great bloggers! Take Care!

    One thing that this post is confirming to me, is that even though blogging takes commitment and hard work, it opens up channels for growth, both for the writer and the reader. It gives us the opportunity to stay in touch with what we are passionate about and practice it on a daily basis.

    This post is very inspirational.

  28. Hi Brother Phil,

    Glad to be here again for another read. If we go through the opinions of all of these bloggers, we can actually see the attitude and personality behind most of them. Many of them have the opinion that networking is one of the powerful advantages of blogging. Yes, networking is a necessary factor for whatever business you do online or offline.

    Donna Merril and a few other bloggers have the opinion that helping others is a greater part they like about blogging. True, blogging can lead us to help others in many ways and that will ultimately lead to a long lasting friendship or relationship.

    Yet another point I would like to mention is that, as David Leonhardit said,
    I too can find a good number of incredible and sincere people who networks on mutual understanding with a supportive mind. I could very well experience this in my blogging journey. Yes in blogging we can see a unity in diversity, though there are few exceptions, there is not much disparity between human on the basis of cast, color, creed, language or region etc. yes, and we are all part of one human race. I fully agree with you David.

    A big thanks to Mi Muba for the interesting and thought provoking introduction he shared.

    Phil, Great to see big names like Neil Patel, Harsh Agrwal and Harleena Singh revealing their opinions in this post. I am so grateful that you give us a chance for bloggers like me to share my opinions along with world famous and experienced professional bloggers. I appreciate you for the great effort you put in to create such an epic post for the benefit of other bloggers. I am sure, as you said in one of the facebook notifications of yours: yes, from this post bloggers can pick up some valuable lessons, alert, suggestion, tips etc for their blogging journey. Surely this will be a great help to the newbie bloggers.

    Keep Blogging and sharing wonderful posts again and again.

    Have a great time.
    Our good wishes for a bright and joyous New Year 2016.

    Remarkable post!
    I see quite a few bloggers that I know, but most of the comments coming from people I do not know.
    Great round-up post showing all types of personalities in blogging.

    I would say that the benefits of blogging far out weigh the bad.
    Most people love blogging for the connections with other bloggers. The learning curve with the the technical side is difficult for new people but necessary to learn.

    I enjoy blogging despite the time spent sitting at a computer for long hours, because of that connection with people from all over the world. I am visiting you today from the PAC rotator. A blogging community in it’s self who has many members mentioned in your terrific article.

    good backlinks

    Blog commenting doesn’t lend itself to such a strategy. If you might be informed about search engine marketing, article marketing, or maybe SEO marketing in general, it’s very
    likely that you have heard of the term ‘backlinks’ or “back links”,
    and what makes them essential within the pursuit to make your
    site rank higher inside internet search engine directories.
    Anything longer and the reader will usually become bored, and anything
    less carries a lower chance of link building.

    I think of you as PV – When you invited me to participate in this post I had no idea the joy the finished post would bring me. What a treat to read about the experiences of others from around the world. Many I can relate to, and some, I would have never considered an issue. The joys seem to be common! Those of us who choose to blog choose to participate in the gift of expression – whether for pure joy or income. Blogging has given me a place for the thoughts and streams in my head to live. Since I blog for myself, my non-profit, Binky Patrol and many clients, I always have a place for any topic. It’s also changed photos I take from my phone. I’m always looking for conceptual photos that I may use on a topic. Saves me a ton with stock photos or from looking like everyone else. THANK YOU for this opportunity.

    Here is a tip or an observation, though it may be a bit off topic,
    I believe that this is worth notable, hope you approve! Thanks. :-)
    One advantage that Google+ has over Facebook is the
    fact that once you post a hyperlink with an article or website,
    it could be shared and viewed globally, or through the entire Google+
    world enabling you to target specific messages to specific audiences.
    Should you choose to that’s not highly sought after, you
    will not make greatly money from all of with the effort.
    Google, in the efforts to create searches easier and faster has come up
    with all the plus1buton.

  51. This is an interesting article to read. For me I think the number of failures are maximum and I happy to fail every time because the after result is awesome. I have learned something new whenever I fail in some target. Blogging is such wonderful hobby that one can learn by failing only. I don’t think there is any easy to follow tutorial with which one can become a successful blogger without failing. Thanks for creating this master piece.

    – Biggest accomplishment: The satisfaction when individuals read and compliment you. When they give their conclusions and concur with your supposition. The best is if your web journal gets distributed someplace pleasant. in the event that you begin showing signs of improvement. You interface with such a large number of individuals and you never know you may genuine companions.

    – Worst disappointment: So far there are no specific most noticeably awful disappointments. A few issues I noticed that occasionally individuals need to play with you particularly in the event that you are a young lady so you need to dependably keep your watchmen up.

    Well , I have just started and trying to make my way. The major source of information is from all the articles available on the internet. Things have however changed over the years and I really do not know which information is still relevant.

    So far in my journey there are 2 things that i have found

    A- The biggest mistake will be “Giving Up”
    B – You can get traffic from social bookmarking but it will have high bounce rate.

    The best thing that has happened is that I met and have learned so much from some wonderful bloggers. What they have shown me has helped me go from wondering what on earth I had to write about in my first blog post, to have been mentioned by some very successful bloggers. Also, this post is a great reminder that how you write about something is definitely JUST as important as what you write about. You gave this a great twist.
