Please don’t listen to your friends for blogging advice and here’s why. Have you ever had your friends telling you that you should maybe give up, or that you probably won’t make it as a blogger because it’s really hard to make money online, or any other advice that is downright negative?
Welcome to the club. It’s difficult isn’t it to know what to do. You don’t want to offend your friends by asking them to shut up, but you don’t want to listen to them either because they haven’t a clue what they’re talking about when it comes to what you do.
I was in exactly that situation. My family and friends didn’t really have the first idea what a blog was or what you could potentially achieve with one. And yet they felt they were adequately qualified to give me advice on mine.
The sad part is though that I had started to listen to them and started to think that they might be right. But in my heart I knew that they were wrong.
Look for someone to advise you who has already achieved what you want to achieve
It was because of this that I looked around for someone who actually knew what they were talking about to help me. Relying on my friends and family for advice had been the wrong thing to do. After all, what did they know? (with the greatest of respect).
