    I’ve been blogging and am starting to see traffic from Google. But sometimes, I have no one in real life that I know that does blogging.

    And when I do bring up the subject, many people will doubt that you can make money from it. I avoid the subject. I’m also an introvert which makes it more lonely than ever.

    Blogging truly is a lonely journey. I was wondering if there’s anyone that’s at my beginner level with the same drive to reach success that I could connect with so that way, we can help each other’s blog become successful and stay motivated.

    If you already have a blog and website and know basic SEO (I only know basic SEO), it would be nice to connect and help each other learn from our mistakes to prevent our loneliness of blogging.

    Pretty sure there will be a dedicated facebook group for bloggers, IMers for your city. Join it, try and make new friends. You just need the right set of friends. Other than that, I feel human relationships are overrated, comes with unnecessary baggage, try to be in a relationship with things you like, nature, things around you and you'll never feel lonely again.

    Indeed, but only as long as you make a living from it. Otherwise, you're just another 'wanna be'.

    If you believe that's what you really want to do, stick to it. Other people's thoughts are not that important.

    I don't think blogging life has to be lonely.

    It's lonely when you are trying to make money though. If you are indeed trying to making your first money. Just forget about human beings...

    Most of the friends you have or you will make will have 0 drive in life. They will tell you about your 9-5 grind, how it's awesome or how it's killing them.

    Make other bloggers in your niche your friends as you guys share a lot of stuff and maybe win a link or two.

    And you have bhw, blogging fb groups, you will find the best people there. Who are motivated to do something in life.

    You are okay man, just make that $1000 and make your life financially comfortable then jump into difficult situations all the time. You might enjoy that.
    You won't get bored again !

    People around me always doubt me. They can't understand how I can possibly make money online. But that's not important. I love the internet lifestyle. I won't change no matter how many people doubt me.

    I have been in the web business running content based websites for over 12 years plus...things are a lot harder now then it was let’s say 5 years ago. Great content helps but marketing your content helps better. You will learn advertising your web brand is just as critical as the quality of content. You need quality traffic and a lot of it. That drives the revenue period. Their are even niche ad management company’s with high rpms for bloggers that generates good money but u have to have the tier 1 traffic minimums that they desire period

    Some of my ‘blogging’ depend on real life connections and offline services, so I’m forced to meet and talk to real people.

    Blogging has big future and lots of money!

    Find some internet communities that can relate to this. Probably a lot of facebook and LinkedIn groups to go around.

    I have pretty the same feeling man, for 5 months I have left my job in Paris for some reasons ( I didn't like my life there ). I was thinking about launch a business with blogging and I did it, I made several affiliate websites with my own content ( I had no money to pay someone else ) but it was really time consuming. So now, I am thinking about find an other way to earn money online than blogging.

    I mean, blogging when you don't buy your articles is always the same repetive way, you build a niche website, you do long researches, it is necessary to format the text, you add affiliate links. It could be very good if you are doing that with others people but like you I don't know anyone who do that too. So yes lonely feeling become more insistant especially if you are introvert and shy ( it's also my case )
