What are the downside to Blogging?
Blogging is very popular these days because it works as a marketing tool and gives you money. But it’s not a cup of tea before starting a blog just for making money or to promote your existing business, you should consider these potential downsides.

1.Blogging requires a good deal:- A blog should have effective SEO which will invite and engage readers, it needs to be updated on regular basis. There are a lot of blog junk in the Internet that haven’t been updated in months or even years. The success of blogging comes from having people return, and they only return when they have got fresh and good stuff to read. That means generating content on regular basis.

2. You need fresh and raw ideas to write about:-  The good news is that you    don’t have to write it all. You can have guest writers or hire freelancers. Another option is to curate content from others or do an alternative post.

3.The payout isn’t immediate:- One of the biggest problem with blogging is after investing so much of time have got  little payout in the beginning. It takes time to build up a readership and momentum.
