I’ve been noticing an increased amount of people disappearing from WordPress. It’s a shame to see so many talented writers give up and go. I’m beginning to wonder, why this is? I have seen posts from fellow bloggers mentioning a lack of views or likes. I have to admit, I was also focused on these for a long while. I have slowly learned to make posts based on what I enjoy. If the views and likes come straight away, that’s great, if not, I know that they will in time. A quote comes to mind, while on this subject. A quote that I have used before, and will continue to do so.

“You only fail if you stop writing.” – Ray Bradbury.

All that you have to do to be successful is keep trying. Most bloggers and authors that we know and love have been writing for years, and therefore have a following that they have worked hard to gain. A substantial following is not gained in weeks or months. If you are writing what you love to write, keep at it. It will only take one post or one story, to one day, gain some recognition. Then your growing base of followers will have an archive of great content to read.

So, to sum up this post. Keep writing. Keep blogging. Keep sharing your great stories. Be true to yourself. You have everything that you need to succeed. Don’t give up.
