Why A Blogger Needs To Be Crazy

Straight Jacket EscapeAre you a crazy blogger (do you think I am crazing for writing this blog post)?

Before we start, let me ask you some questions:

What comes to your mind when you think the word crazy?

Why?

Take a piece of paper and write it down. Do not, I repeat, Do not scroll down to read more.

Just answer the question first.

Are you done? Let’s get to the next question:

What comes to your mind when you think of a mad scientist?

Why?

Write it down.

Am I asking you too much? Aah, let’s move on, okay?

First, let me give you the definition of crazy, that I will be using for this blog post.

The word crazy means: ‘extremely enthusiastic.’

You see, the world’s greatest inventors, scientists were not normal. If they were normal, they wouldn’t have contributed anything to the world.

Yes, I am implying that they were crazy. Come on guys, who would really spend time on inventing a light bulb (even though you failed many times). Only a crazy person would.

World’s smartest inventors were enthusiastic. They were crazy enough to keep on trying until they achieved what they really needed.

Normal people are people who just follow a routine and do their stuff. You don’t want to be normal. You want to be unique and crazy.

I think that craziness itself has the word creative embedded onto it (because crazy people think differently).

So, let me ask again: Are you a crazy blogger?

I know it sounds crazy, but being crazy is really important.

Are you a Crazy Blogger?

Crazy bloggers are bloggers who think and act differently, they are also enthusiastic and passionate about what they are working on (that’s why we have “mad” or crazy scientists in this world). Two good reasons why you need to be a crazy blogger:

  • Crazy Bloggers think out of the box - For Crazy bloggers, it is definitely easy to think out of the box and come up with new ideas.
  • Crazy Bloggers are Determined, Patient and Hardworking - As I mentioned earlier, crazy people are hard working. They won’t give up until they have achieved what they really need. Same goes to crazy bloggers. They will keep on trying until they have achieved their goals with gaining traffic and subscribers.
  • Crazy bloggers do unusual things - They take up challenges related to writing, marketing and every thing that is related to blogging.
  • So, for Crazy bloggers, it is a lot more easier for write awesome articles and get “good” traffic for their posts (Note: Good is subjective).

So, how can you become a Crazy Blogger?

About a month ago, I was asking this question myself. How can I become a crazy blogger. To be honest, I don’t have an awesome answer like those gurus who claim too. But, what I can give you is tips that I got from my own experience.

What I did to become a Crazy Blogger:

  • I took blog challenges – I began to challenge myself. I challenged myself to focus more on writing – writing at least two posts a day for every weekday. Well, to the most part, I was successful with the challenge. Here is what I got out of it: Got new friends, increase my traffic and exposure. And the most important of all, I was building a community in my blog.
  • Many of you who actually know me, might know that I love guest blogging contests. There are a bunch of guest blogging contests that is going on right now. And I participating in two of them :D

Well, those were good things. But, here is what I really lost:

Right now, my marketing strategy really sucks. Since, my focus is on writing, I have not out much effort and time into marketing my content.

Lesson: When you are going crazy and doing things out of the unusual, don’t forget the regulars. Follow them. Keep them on track while being crazy.

So, are you a crazy blogger?

Well, I am not exactly a crazy blogger (not yet). I still have to do a lot more marketing, networking and bunch of other stuff to be completely mad with blogging. And I am planning to do that in coming few weeks.

By the way, I am back to that same question:

Are you a crazy blogger?

Do you think bloggers should be crazy?

Let me know of your crazy thoughts so that I can become crazier by replying to them :D

  1. Interesting post. Agree with the point that Crazy Bloggers are Determined, Patient and Hardworking. crazy bloggers are great blogger, an inspiration for all. Thanks for sharing this interesting post. Keep up good work.

  2. I feel that although crazy people, youtubers, bloggers, seem to get a lot of views and that is the main point, i get frustrated by people who are totally out of this world, and just chat about random things and act like they’re 3 years old with an attention span of a gnat.
    I prefer the people who are down to earth and really explain things the thoroughly whilst putting their own hint of personality to their content, the content shouldnt be based on their personality and them being completely retarded.
    But thats just my opinion!

    • Hey John,

      I do understand your point :) I have certainly seen many people commenting and saying things that isn’t connected to the article and that does frustrate me a bit.

      I hope that I was up to your expectations (was I?).

      Thanks for stating your opinion!

  3. I think you make an interesting point Jeevan. Most blogs – especially SEO – tends to focus on the exact same concepts. Which, of course is to be expected – but there success will probably be limited as you say. The difficulty is having that touch of genius/craziness that isn’t retarded as John say, but will offer something new to improve people’s online experience.

    • I am glad that you think so :)

      Yes, of course. But most people aren’t able to offer something new to their readers (My opinion is that they should change their niche to something else like personal development).

      Thanks for the comment!

  4. I actually liked the fact that you neglected the “how to become a crazy blogger” question and I don’t mean that in a bad way. All these tip blogs talk about how to become this, that and other but the way I feel is that if your not obsessed with blogging then thats just who you are. You can always improve your writing, try to write more content and such but at the end of the day you’ll just be over exhausted. Don’t change who you are because an article told you to. If your readers are already enjoying your content then there is no reason to become a “crazy blogger”. Just sayin…

    • Hey Josh,

      If you are already maintaining a blog in awesome shape – then you are of course a crazy blogger, there is no need to be one.

      The How question – you can’t really answer it (Lot of bloggers have tried it, me included – which I think was a big mistake because the how changes upon each person). The only way you can achieve your goals is to do it – face it :)

      Everything matters. Giving too much attention and too little attention are both dangerous and it can hurt your blog in the long term. I like to focus on giving the appropriate attention to all things – small or big that are associated with your blog. You need to take care of everything ;)

      Thanks for the comment!

  5. A routine can be very tiring. And if you’re one who sticks to a routine over a long period of time, is not normal, that’s insane! Lol… But really, if you’re a blogger, you’d have to be crazy. I mean, you have to be extremely enthusiastic at something to even start writing about it.

    • Hey Felicia,

      I am glad that you agree. Yes, a routine over a long period of time can be tiresome (and boring). You need to change things up a bit, every now and then. Break the rules – rules that are conceivably written by the gurus – and we accept it.

      Thanks for the comment!

  6. Crazyness is really needed in blogging and not only in bloggin even its is needed for every fork because when you care crazzy for anything then you become more creative. Very nice post.

  7. I would not say I am crazy, maybe a little unconventional. I think you have to be creative to be a blogger.

  8. Great post, it’s thin line between crazy and intelligent person.
    Sometimes we just need to go crazy through the life.
    thanks for sharing

  9. I definitely relate to this post. I am totally crazy! I am silly, weird and always have ideas popping into my head for myself and my clients. I love being crazy! :) Great post!

    Well I know some crazy bloggers right now and they serve as my inspiration too…Anyway, thank you for this interesting post here…

    • Hey Charmagn,

      I am glad that crazy bloggers are serving as your inspiration. I hope that you achieve your blogging goals some day by inspiring to become one of those crazy bloggers who serve as your inspiration :D

      Thanks for the comment!

  11. Genius always has its doses of madness! Yes, if we wouldn’t be crazy with what we do, there’s no taking us forward and enough enthusiasm and hardwork to excel in what we do. Love this post!

  12. Great pieces of advice! I always try to find something new and discover interesting facts that might help my passion for blogging. Craziness can sometimes become our ticket to success :)

    • Thanks!

      I am glad that you do. Yes, digging for new things (facts, techniques, experience itself) can help us a lot – increase our passion, help our motivation and serve as an inspiration. Thanks for the comment!

  13. Nice article….Initially when i first read title, i disagree with that the bloggers need to be crazy but gradually i came to know that you rightly used the term ‘crazy’. Yes, having craziness in blog writing provides room for thinking to such an extent that gives you the best result of your writing. i completely agree with the points enlisted above for the term ‘crazy’. Truly interesting article…..Keep such nice posting continue..

  14. What comes to my mind whenever I read the word crazy blogger is that you should be humorous and optimistic. I know a blog called “The Bad Blogger”. I enjoyed every post he wrote. It’s all relevant to his niche but he put some twist into his writing. This style of writing is effective indeed.

  15. I think every one of us are to be crazy enough to do something new which satisfies their heart.Helping others,trying something new are found to be crazy.Three nice quotes stated under-”Are you a Crazy Blogger?”, which inspires a lot.Thanks for sharing.

  16. I have the passion to try something new and interesting that could help me in blogs and in the future aspects. This is a crazy feeling I have. Similarly all have something like that. Impressive to share.

    • Yes, of course. Helping others and trying something new are crazy acts which makes us crazy bloggers.

      That is great. I am glad that you have the passion to try something new.

      I hope that you achieve great things with your passion.

      Thanks for both comment!

  17. Hi Jeevan nice words again….and yes its essential to have crazyness for whatever you do…..

  18. It’s the difference between us and everyone else that defines us and if that gap is big it can make us look a bit crazy but it is also what makes us stand out in all the best ways too.

  19. According to me crazy bloggers are those that are creative and have will to achieve their goals in the life.

  20. Passionate is an important thing which makes the blogger to go crazy. If there is any need such as money or popularity, blogger must follow unique style and want to go ahead crazy.

  21. All bloggers should be very creative, and it’s not a secret that the majority of all creative people should be a little bit crazy,so you are completely right

  22. I know I need to go crazy. I’m sitting at my desk as we speak, thinking of some crazy, yet unique stories I can post on my blog.

    Great post!

  23. Ronifelle says:

    The title really caught up my attntion…Anyway, I really wanted to share this and i hope my friends will like this too…

  24. Honestly this is my favorite article! Your thought about crazy bloggers is very revolutionary and fresh and exciting! Right now I feel very enthusiastic just with the idea, and I am going to apply it. I really believe that this craziness makes a blog unique and a blogger stubborn about his work and his goals!
    Thank you for sharing.

  25. Bloggers are online professionals. All professionals have their definite aim in life. To work in a streamline to complete the research makes a blogger crazy.

  26. Everyone’s got to have a little bit of crazy in them, if it just shows more in bloggers it’s only because of the fact that their thoughts are going out to the public on a regular basis.

  27. Crazy people are often misunderstood, but then they are also the ones who make a significant change in the world.

  28. definitely for me a crazy blogger is someone who is enthusiastic, patient and loves to read and write. Someone who thinks out of the box and is tremendously passionate about blogging.

  29. crazy blogger would be more interesting than regular blogger………

  30. really agree with your article. we have to stand out of the crow to be different. good inspiration article
