The best way to keep on blogging is to make it into a habit, something that you will continue to do for a long time on a regularity.
One Pocket Oxford Dictionary (the 1992 eighth edition) describes the word habit as a “practice that is hard to give up” and the word habitual as “done constantly”, and we all know that practice becomes perfect if it is done constantly.
If you make blogging a habit then you will be blogging for a long time to come always having something to blog about and doing it perfectly. Making blogging into a habit is like developing passion for it, in my own words I would say passion on steroids. Now this means you would have extra passion for blogging, never wanting to give it up. The only way blogging is going to work is if you naturally have the passion which motivates you to blog.
But how do you really make blogging into a habit so that you can make it truly make it work for you?

Develop Some Self Motivation
In order to accomplish anything that is hard or challenging and would take some sort of extra effort to complete then we need motivation. When we are motivated then this makes the task/work ahead seems a bit easier.
How can we get motivated so that we can develop a habit for blogging? I do this by reading success stories from bloggers who have been blogging for years, bloggers who take blogging seriously and who see blogging as a means of survival. Reading success stories keeps me motivated which helps me to develop a habit for blogging. Success stories are always full of inspiration and this can build up self motivation.
Self motivation is the inner drive which compels us to become successful. Without self motivation then it is pretty impossible for us to become that successful blogger that we so desire to become.
Ways to develop self motivation for blogging:
Follow these tips listed above and you will always be motivated to continue blogging.
Set Blogging Goals To Achieve
You don’t just achieve everything that would like to achieve on the same day. In order to achieve our blogging goals then we have to make it a habit so that we can fully achieve our goals.
If you don’t make it a habit to blog then our goals will become failure, and nothing hurts more than when we fail.
If your blog doesn’t have much traffic then you can set goals of achieving 100 unique visitors per day, then 200 unique visitors per day and then keep on climbing the ladder of success. Getting visitors coming to your blog is not something that you so one time and then stop. You have to make it a habit to do guest posting, blog commenting, participate in forum discussions, use social media on a regular basis so that you can achieve that level of unique visitors per day that you want.
Keep In Mind That You Can Make Money
Another thing to make blogging a habit is to know that you can make money from your blog. There are lots of ways that you can use your blog to make money, but please check out the 7 most effective that you can make money from your blog.
You don’t just launch your blog today and then by over night you have money in your pocket or wherever you want to keep it. Blogging to make money takes months and sometimes even years, depending on how you approach this matter of making money online. You have to be constantly on it everyday, which I would say be an habitual blogger. You have to make sure put out the extra work in order to make money blogging, you have to take it very seriously.
Sometimes it’s not always wise to have money-making as a habit as it can distract us from doing the things that will contribute to us making the money. But if you have your head screwed on right then I guess you can keep money-making on your mind so as to make blogging a habit.
Let Your Passion Speak For Itself
When you have a passion for something whether it is listening to rock music, riding a bike or playing your favorite video game, then it’s something that would like to do over and over because you are having fun.
Having the passion for blogging and writing then you have no problem in making blogging into a habit. True passion is what we need to make blogging work and no passion means no habit for blogging. You will want to blog everyday if you have fun doing it, this is the passion, and if you write multiple blog post per day then this is a good habit that you will want to keep up.
When you are an habitual blogger then you can have posts to contribute to other blogs as guest post. Guest posting is a great way to get traffic and the only way this will work is of you write on a regularity.
