Great article, nicely articulated.
There are lot of inspiration and success stories on the internet, most of them works well and is a great marketing strategy but most of them just feels over exaggerated.
For the first few months it becomes addiction . You read ton of these success stories and follow them, stalk them on social media, subscribe to their blog. After that point you notice you haven’t changed and your life is same as before. You are not in Bali or other exotic places and have a 5 figure income blog.
People have become smart with easily available information and wont buy your story.
This article sums up some my points beautifully.
