3. Are you writing contents genuinely?
Well, if the answers are YES, then hooray. You are just prepared to Take your blog to the next level. But wait, did I went too fast? Oops! I just missed a point to ask.
Are you having any plan for your blog? Have you ever tried to ask yourself that “am I having any plans for my blog for surviving in blogging for next 5 or more years?”. As you might know that most of the bloggers just end their journey after 2-3 months yet some stay even for 6 months but after that. NO MORE.
Just vanished. No impression nothing. When you/I may ask what happened. The same answer “I am not getting time to update my blog” or “I am not getting much ideas to write on”.

I am not telling that I have always an brain storming ideas in my head. But still, I am surviving.
