8 Reasons Why People Quit Blogging

Blogging has become a passion for many young students. Like any other job, they start working with full dedication. But as time goes on, they start to move away from blogging. There are several reasons which could make them quit blogging and move to other jobs. When I tried to find out, what was the real reason behind these things. I came up with 8 factors that have a significant impact on them.

Reasons Why People Quit Blogging

The eight factors that forces them to exit out of blogging are

  1. Thinking of Money
  2. Impatience
  3. Over Exhausted
  4. Lack of Interest
  5. Comparing With Other Bloggers
  6. Concentrating on More Things
  7. No Visitors at All
  8. Not Able To Face Failures

1. Thinking about Money

Don’t Count the Eggs before They Hatch”

Many Startup bloggers think that it is an easy job to get the content delivered to everyone. They misunderstood that if one gets into blogging he can start making money immediately. But they never realize that only hard work and consistent efforts will bring income.

We can’t blame them too, as the whole world is looking for money. This indeed makes the people to be money motive.  The best remedy is to do write on other blogs as a guest blogger, get a fair amount of money.

2. Impatience

“Do You Want To Become A Millionaire One Night”

Can you see how funny and unrealistic the above question is? No one can become a millionaire overnight. The point here I am trying to insist upon is patience and time. One needs to be extremely patience. One cannot become a pro blogger by two days or three days. It needs extreme level of analysis and research on audience to reach the level of pro blogger.

At the same time, schedule your work systematically. Try to update your blog every day.

3. Over Exhausted

If one runs out of ideas or content, that’s where one gets into trouble.  This problem had risen for everyone. A closer look at this problem will tell that,

“One who doesn’t get updated frequently faces the problem of exhaustiveness.”

Take proper care to read the latest news and information daily. Keep changing the strategies of writing according to the latest trends.

4. Lack of Interest

People with a childish attitude can never sustain in the area of blogging, because they keep changing their area of interest.  A small child will like a chocolate. But when it sees an ice cream, it would leave the chocolate and starts to eat the ice cream. Similarly bloggers also tend to prefer other things over blogging at some point of time and lose their attitude towards writing.

 5. Comparison with Other Bloggers

Personality of anyone gets degraded, when he starts to compare him with others.  It’s a god’s gift that

“Everyone Is Born Unique and Have Unique Skills”

One can follow other men, but don’t ever try to replicate them or their writing. Be the first person of your kind.

6. Concentrating on More Things

I had a friend who was writing good articles at the start of his carrier. But as years passed by he saw Web Designing and development.  He started to do multitasking. As a result, he was not able to concentrate fully on blogging. It’s not a crime to do other activities, but do only one thing at a time. Don’t make your schedule a complicated one.

7. No Visitors at All

There may be times where one author doesn’t get any comments on his article. This can be disheartening, because he feels that no one is appreciating him for his work.

“Every single person needs some encouragement to keep doing good work.”

When a young blogger is not encouraged or discouraged by others, he starts to feel the pressure. Sooner or later he will quit and move to doing his regular work.

8. Not Able To Face Failures

In every part of our life, we have ups and downs. One can never expect success at his every attempt. If one is not able to face difficulties and challenges that may occur while writing, then he is not fit to be a blogger anymore.

Always remember one thing, nothing can be achieved easily. Be optimistic at all the situations of life, don’t lose your heart. Be brave and face the situation to see a change happening in your life.

    Blogging is method of expression of our thoughts ,so it needs dedication and self confidence .I have seen many bloggers those have got success in blogging after battling for a long duration. Oh , success does not meant getting huge income .

  2. Vivek Nath.R says:

    Some guys quit blogging if Google banned their adsense account and that’s a quiet weird reason. These guys think adsense is the final method to get some bucks.

  3. Vipin Pandey says:

    Hi Aditya,

    I agree with each and every point you said. A point that effect me very badly is comparing with other bloggers. We often see the status updates of other bloggers over Facebook about their success story.

    It is good to read success story of others because they inspires you but the same story can hurt you. You start comparing with them and you found yourself at a lower level. That makes you negative.


    • Aditya Chintha says:

      hmm well vipin i agree with your statement but comparing with others shudn’t be done…its ok if it inspires you !! But Never compare your self with anyone becuz everyone is unique !!

  4. Yes you are right Aditya. Some people starts blogging in excitement rather than their interest. It is better to plan and move accordingly instead of taking rapid decision and moving out.

  5. Ravi @ Technology Blog says:

    I guess people blogging coz of passion always think about quality and hence they are successful, the ones who start blogging for money easily get bored quickly.. Hence they get Down

  6. rakesh kumar says:

    Money is a great motivator and when new bloggers does not find it easy to earn from their own blog they start quitting from the blogging. Thanks dear for this insightful article.

  7. Arsie Organo says:

    Well, as for me the main reason is not in the list. I am just busy with my regular day job and can’t really find time to regularly maintain my blog sites.

  8. I’d say that’s a good summary of reasons. I’ve lost more than a few blog concepts to these reasons.

  9. James360Smith says:

    Agree with all above points but someone quit blogging for some different reasons like if someone wants to be become a web designer ( or web developer) then he/she doesn’t have any other way so he either completely leaves it or assign some time on a daily basis to enjoy the passion of blogging. If he/she doesn’t have a time to arrange multitasking then he/she must quit it but I like multitasking which satisfies me and helps me to be updated with technology on a regular basis.

  10. Manoj Kumar says:

    I Agree with u but some guys are quit blogging bcoz google banned their adsense account

  11. arun garg says:

    Every point is worth reading. I think you missed consistency which is the main factor because all bloggers find hard what to write fresh daily and also lack of proper guidance.

  12. Rahul Chowdhury says:

    Nice points there mate, they are absolutely true.

  13. Thats true Specially About no Visitors !!

  14. Hi,
    Well the points that you have shared are surely true. It do happens with most bloggers that after they get introduced to the blogging era, they concentrate mostly on earning some bucks online rather than concentrating on content. This sometimes proves to be a foul to them, thus resulting in the end of blogging. Thanks for the share!!

  15. Not able to see money and not getting enough traffic are valid reasons to quit. But bloggers should also understand that they need to put in some solid hard work in order to see money and get recognition!

    • rakesh kumar says:

      Dear Jane only hard work does not deserve money and traffic,smart directed hard work must for money and traffic. Am i right ?

  16. Theodore Nwangene says:

    I really agree with you,
    Blogging is never a get rich quick scheme, although most so called pro bloggers has always made us to believe so just to force their craps of a products down our throwth.

    I believe with passion/interest, one can really make it via blogging. We just have to stick longer to it in order to see the success.

    Lets forget the scams that promises us millions over night and start building a long lasting business……….BLOGGING.

    Thanks for sharing dear and happy new year.

  17. Shivkumar says:

    Correct Aditya, you have covered almost all the top reason which just revoke one’s mind from blogging.
    I will repeated your statement “Everyone Is Born Unique and Have Unique Skills” so keep putting a serious and continuous effort which will surely result in worth result for us.


    Point 3 : Over Exhausted
    One can overcome it by using Google Alerts. Many people still don’t know about this wonderful application by Google. Its a life saviour for me

    Point 7 : No Visitors at All
    Its not necessary that if u r not getting comments then you are not getting visitors. And your post said “He moves on to his regular work”…. Aaaaaa after reading this statement I felt that Is Blogging a really dicey job to take? It makes one think

    Point Second : Impatience
    I can correct you here 😛 … [Just Kidding :P] If you can be the next “Oppa Gangnam Style” or “Kolaveri Di” and your video is on youtube… then surely, Youtube Partnership program can make you Richie Rich overnight 😛 😀

  19. Dr. Erica Goodstone says:


    One of the main reasons that people I know have quickly quit blogging is that they want and expect to make money or to get an instant rush of visitors and comments and optins and sales. They are impatient. Then they look at either the most successful bloggers and feel they can’t compete. Or they look at the totally unsuccessful bloggers and feel that blogging is not worth the effort because you can’t get anywhere unless you are hugely popular or a great marketer. But for me, the biggest flaw in those who quit blogging, is their attitude of expecting to receive without giving. In order to create abundant followers, lots of commenting and back and forth dialogue, you as the blogger need to be present, consistently present, and regularly updating your interesting and valuable content.



  20. Narender Chopra says:

    I think competition , Traffic and Failure are the top reasons why people leaves blogging . And in case of Indian Bloggers I would say Its family who force you to leave blogging .

  21. Anil Agarwal says:

    People quit blogging when they don’t see any results they want.

    And too often, people fail to build successful blogs because they don’t work enough hard. Make sure to keep your focus on things that will bring long term results and give it some time. you’ll be fine!
