The Most Popular Blog Site – Could You Handle It?

Most popular blog site

Do you ever wish that your blog received more comments or a lot more traffic? Have you ever thought about what would happen if it really did? The other week I received over 100 comments on my post on why are so many are blogging today and I thought “what if this happened all the time, how would I handle it?” I know many of you receive more than that. But I also work full time so it really leaves little time left to write new posts and clean house (what is that, right?) Responding to comments takes time. And then what if you received more traffic and your server could not handle it, would you make enough money blogging to pay for a single server? Your blogging wish could maybe become your blogging nightmare.

The Most Recent Most Popular Blog Site

Did you see the popular post last week on Marriage Isn’t For You? When I first saw it had over 2,000 comments. My Lord I thought, I could never respond to all those comments. Today when I glanced at it to link it up for this post, it has over 4,000 comments!  I’ve glanced back at it some of his earlier posts and they received like 2-6 comments. Imagine going from 2-6 comments to 4,000!  The post on marriage was quite controversial and very touching . I discovered it via Alexa hot stories of the day, it was #1 that day. Usually you see things from the Huffington Post or Fox News, etc. on the top 10 list. Since that post Seth Adam Smith wrote another about it and how it had over 24 million views on that marriage post in just 3 days. It made headlines everywhere online and on TV. He was shocked by it. It was all done on the free WordPress platform. You can see ads at the bottom of the posts. It appears the blog has been around since 2008. The writer Seth is an author and he has quite an inspiring bio if you read through it. His marriage post really touched a lot of people and I believe that is what made it go viral and become a huge success. It is the most popular blog site today.

So what would you do if you had a post go viral like that and your blog became the most popular blog site next?

 

 

Is Your Blog Ready To Become The Most Popular Blog Site?

  1. Hosting – Do you know how much space you have left on your server via your host? Is it a shared host?
  2. Time – Would you be able to devote more time to your blog if you received hundreds or thousands of comments?
  3. Money – Could you invest more money in a single server for your hosting platform? Could you pay someone to help you with your blog?

Most bloggers start with the less expensive shared hosting packages and some are limited or unlimited and may be priced from $2-15 per month. VPS’s are a single server host and cost a bit more. For more info check out ShoutMeLoud for details of various types of hosting to be sure you will be prepared for your blog was next to become the most popular blog site.

plan your blog success

Time and money are probably 2 things you haven’t given much thought to if you are working a full time job still and your blogging time is limited. You are not planning on your blog being the most popular blog site out there, right? There are only so many hours in the day. But it is a good thing to consider for the future. You never know what can happen. Do you know who you would like to hire to help you with your blog? Someone that could contribute to your blog and keep it going while you respond to the thousands of comments or replies on social networks. Someone who can help you switch servers and keep up with the technical challenges that may arise with a bigger stream of traffic.

Many businesses that started with one person hatch into something more when others are hired and take over some of the duties. I have a dream team in my head for that someday possibility.

 Would you be able to handle it if you blog became the most popular blog site next?

Have you ever given it some thought? I wonder if Seth had.

    Becoming the next big blog would be an awesome experience. I am not sure, if I can handle so many replies, but I definitely wish it to happen to each of my post.

    As for the servers, mine is free but ready to handle all the traffic, as far as comments and emails, I will take a day off to dedicate time to all those who will make my blog go viral.

    I just checked now and it has more than 5000 comments, and that is just marvelous. Sometimes, we all need is initial push. Awesome.

    Wow Lisa!

    This is an extremely thought provoking post! Because practically any newbie would have any idea “how to” answer your three -cut to the chase- questions!

    They’d simply have no idea “how” much total space is left on their current server and or whether or not it’a a shared or VPS platform!

    Of course, a quick look at “how” much their currently paying, would tell us all we need to know!

    Their eyes would merely glaze over! Because the truth told! A staggering 99% of them are ill prepared to be successful online business owners/entrepreneurs!

    Sure they fantasize about success! But far too many wannabees are simply not committed to really doing what it takes in order to succeed!

    You also mentioned the time investment that will surely be needed!

    If they don’t have the time or inspiration to consistently deliver fresh thought provoking content of some kind! Via blog posts and or short 3-5 minute “how to” videos etc.

    How excited and dedicated are they going to be, to answer 100, let alone 4,000 blog comments! Yea right!

    And finally, sine most cash starved, struggling newbies are always constantly on the look out for effective ways to save money!
    They’ll probably foolishly talk themselves out of investing the necessary capital to meet the new immediate needs of their newly growing business!

    And try to justify it by rationalizing, why bother responding to all of these useless comments, when 98% of them or more are probably not going to buy anything right now anyway!

    You hit this one out of the park Lisa! Great content! And thanks for sharing it!

      Hi Mark, it’s like that old saying “Be careful of what you wish for”, right? You are right, many are not committed to really doing what it takes to succeed. That blog post really made me think not just about a popular blog but about relationships too. I was truly fascinated by it all and then to see it make all the news channels and him making the interviews everywhere about it. Amazing story. I’ve got to go back and see how that blog is doing now. It’s been a while since I last checked. Thanks for your insightful comment and have a wonderful day.

    For getting success in blogging requires lots of hardwork, consistency and patience which is not an easy task. We have to update our blog regularly and also have to make good connections with other. For me, getting 100 comment is very big task at this moment and I am sure If I work properly, I will surely gonna achieve this.

    Lisa,

    I can’t wait until I’m getting that many comments! It looks like you’ve reached the 100 comment mark several times now. I’m sure the 1,000s won’t be far off for you.

    If I got 4,000 comments? I think I’d stay up for days getting back to everyone. At least every person who left a genuine comment.

    That’s such an enormous opportunity to help people and possibly change someone’s life. That’s what blogging is all about for me. I just can’t wait until the momentum starts picking up.

    Hi Lisa -Sorry I haven’t been around lately. I’ve had a lot of personal and blogging issues to contend with. I think if I were to get 4,000 comments, I would initially think they were spam and consider writing an angry email to Askimet.

    I can’t imagine responding to that number of comments. I think it would paralyze me. I might handle the situation by posting a thank you to everyone who commented. Hiring a virtual assistant isn’t a bad idea. It’s something to think about if a post I wrote ever went viral. I should be so lucky. : )

    In a completely opposite approach to your wonderful article on handling a blog’s popularity, I’ve been busy sabotaging my blog by making stupid mistakes. I’m rather impulsive at night and should be banned from the Internet after 8 p.m. That’s when I usually make my screw ups. It’s like when sending an important email, let it sit for a while, maybe print it out and read it before hitting send. I need to do that more when I’m kicking the tires in the dashboard of my blog.

      Hi Lauren, I hope personal stuff is okay. I heard about the permalinks I believe? Have you been able to figure that out? I can’t imagine responding to 4000 either. He did a follow up post to thank everyone, smart idea. Did you contact Mayura via his site for any help? What Seo plugin are you using? I’ve had issues in the past via Yoast but was able to find the problem and fix it. I may still have a few minor ones. I don’t lose sleep anymore over them :) I hope you have a great weeek and Thanksgiving ahead Lauren. Let me know more and I can do some research for you too.

        Thanks Lisa. Personal stuff is fine.

        I haven’t contacted Mayura for help. I’m using All In One SEO.

        At the moment, I’m dealing with the permalink change that I’ve apparently done twice. Rather than deal with .htaccess files and figure out the redirection plugin settings that needed code, I reset my permalink back to what it was. I printed out the 84 links pointing to 404 pages (at one point it was 395) and am going through my dashboard to find the correct links that I’m writing down next to the problem links on my link list.

        I’ll reinstall the redirection plugin for those links. There are other links that are replytocom. I found an article on how to fix them in Google Webmaster Tools.

        At this point, I’m trying to figure out what to do with the links that have /feed in them as well as links that are tags pointing to 404 pages. I can probably redirect the tags to the posts the tags were included in. That’s the mess I’m dealing with.

        Hard lesson to learn about not changing the permalinks unless you know what you’re doing.

    Lisa, I just read Seth’s post there and I don’t think his post has an X factor that is so unusual that his post went viral like that. I think its pretty ordinary. But then again we are on the era of 1 out of 2 marriage end up in divorce. He’s a Mormon…I read his About Me page there and he even got the footage when he was interviewed live on TV, but I don’t think that’s the case either. I was interviewed too on TV but my blog didn’t go viral getting 4000 comments in 3 days. Anyway, it is mind boggling.

I read his about page too and he has made quite a turnaround in his life. I’ve got to go back and see how his subsequent posts have been. He seems genuine and like a nice guy overall.

    Hi Lisa,

    When I first saw your headline I thought I read this already because this is the 2nd one I read asking “What would you do if your blog become the most popular blog?” First one was written by Bonnie Gean and she had like 50 comments in a day, she thought she was getting spammed. But lo and behold it wasn’t. She told me that she is still answering comments even after a week.

    So what would I do if I get 4000 comments in 3 days? I’ll be pretty shock, happy, and overwhelm at the same time. I might have to hire some virtual assistant to answer all these comments. Also I would be worried the bandwidth I’m putting thru my hosting service, I better have more money to support all the unexpected risen expenses. Email subscriber might increase also which is another raise in my overhead.

    I guess Seth is on free WordPress which he has nothing to worry about. But if that happens to me and I’m using my own domain and I’m getting all these humungous traffic, I sure just hope so that each of them or at least half of them convert to my potential customers and not just people passing thru.

    Anyway, now you made men curious about his post on marriage. Will read it now…and I will let you know more later. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

    I can picture what was going on in our fellow bloggers mind. It was quite a boast since the same people would be dropping by now and then to get such posts. Controversial topics are very nice and how he laid down the points would have probably drawn people’s attention. One thing which Seth should do is now keep the standards he has already set for himself to maintain that number of viewers. Thanks for sharing this, I had not seen it until you posted. ~ Anetta

So, there’s no way I could respond back to 4,000. However, I’d like to get that much traffic and comments on a regular basis. I guess a girl can dream… 😀

    Hello Lisa,

    The three questions you’ve posted have some pretty and quick answers if I have the issue at hand.

    For hosting, if have that much traffic, then I should actually have the resources to upgrade my hosting plan. Is it not so?

    For time, I’ll willingly quit my day job if my blog has that much success. Great chances are that the blog would have better potential than my offline job.

    In terms of money, it’s actually as simple as ABC. If my blog has that much success, I bet you, I’ll pitch CNN, Forbes and BBC in such a manner that you’ll see their ads live in 3 days. I don’t think paying my bills would be a problem any longer.

    So Lisa, as you can see, I’m actually awaiting such success 😆

    Do have a supercharged week ahead!

    Not sure what I would do if I suddenly became so popular. Like so many others, I have a crazy busy life, and blogging is my “side-job” and I’m a small time blogger at that. At times, keeping up with the few comments I do get can be tough. But I can dream of that one day I go viral … and have a plan just in case!

  • Hi Lisa!

    From my point of view, if you have a popular blog with high traffic then your “responsibility” grows along with it. You end up with a power that shapes the world itself. This is the force that has to be used correctly from the very beginning to be a “responsible blogger”.

    Just my opinion..

    Hi Lisa,

    Very interesting topic! This something that many blogger have to think about. When my blog starting to get popular it only means one thing to me … I have to invest more time to it. This is something tricky as part-time blogger. I am always put all the goal into “popularity or exposure” but I’ve never realized it can backfire me. I need to handle this so-little-time to manage everything because when our blog popular people will demand our explanation of their questions. If we ignore them … it can be counter-productive somehow.

    Get prepared is the best option to take. Thanks for this post and wish you have a great weekend

    Great post, funny that I found it today, because over the last few days I’ve been looking at VPS packages because I feel my shared hosting package is causing slowness for my sites.

    I don’t get much traffic but like you said I’d like to be ready if I did.

    unmanaged VPS can cost about the same as shared hosting but will require more technical work on the server side.

You alone cannot be facing 4000 readers. I might just edit the post and leave a general comment at the bottom of the article- seriously 😉

    Hi Lisa – I’d absolutely hate it. I have to admit, I love getting comments, but sometimes resent the amount of time I spend responding to them and making reciprocal visits to comment on other blogs. Like Jeevan, I think I’d end up finding it boring – it’s just not the way I want to spend my time. So I’ve absolutely NO idea what I’d do – like a lot of the most popular blogs, I guess a lot of comments would just have to go unanswered.

    As for other practicalities, I’d have no hesitation in hiring someone to switch my blog to a managed hosting service – that wouldn’t be a problem. But thousands of comments would be!

    Honestly, I wouldn’t have time to respond to 100+ comments every day. I just don’t have a lot of free time, and I would rather not spend what little I do have on doing that on a daily basis. If the site happened to be generating a nice paycheck, then that would be a different story. I would certainly figure out a way to free up more time.

    I am fairly certain that my hosting could handle more traffic, but obviously at a certain point there would come a time when a little more power would be necessary. I definitely would like to be earning enough off the site to pay for more expensive hosting if that were to happen.

  • Hi Lisa,

    Wow, more than 4000 comments! :O I read that post very early on when it appeared in my Facebook newsfeed. I didn’t actually even check how many comments it had at the time but my god, I wonder how he’s felt when he realised his post has gone viral like that! If that ever happened to me it would probably be a case of not sleeping at all (for a couple of days!) as I would have to approve and reply to all the comments. My god…

    I wouldn’t probably be very prepared if this ever happened to me, I haven’t even considered it. I would mostly worry about my hosting – I am not even aware of how much space I have on the server.

    Thanks for sharing and congratulations on 100 comments on one post! I’m yet to achieve that but I’m sure I will some day :)

    Have a great day.

    Wow Lisa,
    Congrats on the success, getting 4000 comments is not a joke and yes the topic you choose is definitely a controversial topic. Even I get many of my friends asking me to suggest if they are choosing the right person.

    For instance if I keep this Marriage topic aside, when we are into blogging full time then we can invest on it. For a part time blogger it doesn’t matter much. But if a part time blogger hits it in Huffington post then we might need to invest on our blog as traffic that comes to our blog should be handled. As you said a single person businesses hatch into some multi dollar companies in future. For now I will just head over to Marriage is not for you post, I am really eager to read whats written there.

    As for taking the time to answer all the comments that I would get. I know what you mean about not having time to do it. However, I could find the time if one post went viral.

    If more than one post went viral, then that may be a different story. I too am using Hostgator and not sure if it could handle that much traffic?

    Hi Lisa,

    First I want to congratulate you on your traffic.

    My oh My If my post went viral, I would have to first go to my hosting company and see what the heck they could do about it. Then I would have to hire an assistant to answer the comments.

    I’ve noticed that blog somewhere of how it went viral so fast, but didn’t keep my eye on it. Imagine handling all those people?

    Answering all would be like writing an novel.

      Thanks Donna. Oh yes a VA would be great. Good point it would feel like writing a novel answering all of them. I would love to have seen his face when he checked his phone and realized how many comments they were. That would have made a great image for a follow up post. Not sure I would want to be all over TV and living in a bubble though. Thead at part I would NOT like. Have a wonderful day ahead Donna!

    Hi Lisa,

    Congratulations on the traffic you’re getting. One can only surmise what that will be like. I’m certainly not there yet, and I suppose I will deal with it should it arise. In the meanwhile, I opted for Kumar’s VPS web hosting service and I can vouch for its reliability. I know it can handle the traffic. I had so much trouble with Blue Host, I’m glad I switched over.

    Have a great week!

    I find my enjoyment (of blogging) in the journey..journey towards achieving success. Success itself is not so enjoyable.

    Then there is the problem of time. I had a hard time managing my blog with just 20-30 comments, 100s of comments, now that would be crazy!

    Hey Lisa,

    Welcome to the 100 club! lol… It’s a heck of a lot of work isn’t it girl? To do it every single week is tiring to say the least but how can you not be appreciative that people really enjoy what you share and want to contribute to the conversation.

    I saw that post title but didn’t read it because I’m not married so that’s really of no interest to me. That’s the thing about blog posts. You can write one thing that has a “killer” headline and people are drawn to it. You keep them interested and apparently Seth’s post did just that and it’s gone viral. You can’t get them all to do that but I’ll take one any day of the week.

    I think unless you’re a blog like Copyblogger or Problogger a few visits here and there, even millions like Seth had then the server can handle it since it’s obvious that it’s temporary. We only wish it would remain that way all the time. If mine were that popular then I know I’d be making a heck of a lot more money and the rest would just fall into place. I have a very positive attitude as you can tell. 😉

    Thanks for sharing this Lisa and maybe someday right!

      Thank you Adrienne, it is. I can’t imagine on every single post but if I space them out further it works good. I think many not married folks are the ones that got fired up about it too. They probably tried for years to make someone happy and they could not so his idea of it was not what they wanted to hear. I didn’t agree with his theory myself though it did make me think a lot. Interesting point about the visits being temporary and servers okay with it once. I will have to follow him and see how he does going forward – it will be hard to compete with himself after that one. You are welcome and have a great Wednesday there Adrienne. I hope you find that car this week too.

  • This post frankly scares me to death, Lisa! 😉 But if the blogger was selling products (eBooks, training programs, etc.) on their website, then when that traffic spike came, more money would come along with it!

    Good thing to think forward about. What do we have on our websites that would pay for our new needs, should the winds of popularity blow our way?

    Hi Lisa! Interesting post! First things first, NO I wouldn’t be able to handle it and NO I wouldn’t want it to happen. As a hobby blogger, who is finding it more difficult each day to keep up with posts and comments, i prefer to be laid back and not draw too much attention. However, I do see some folks, especially those who either don’t work, being able to handles the instant popularity. How exciting it would be!

    What would happen if Inspire suddenly blew up with comments? Could you rearrange all your other blogs, family life, and your job to handle it all? Wow! Just the thought makes me cringe! 😯

As for the article on marriage, I don’t agree with the author of it, as we had briefly discussed on Twitter. People get married for lots of reasons. However, when I got married, it wasn’t for family or kids, it was to find my life partner “in crime”. My hubs, at the time, was a good fit for me. It’s nice to grow old with someone you can at least enjoy being around. All these other things, imo (kids, extended family) are all perks but not reasons to marry imo.

        Makes ya think, right?

    That is really cool to go from 6 comments to 4,000 in 3 days!!! I don’t know if I am ready for such surprises. But yes, for that you need to make your content go viral.
    With more traffic and comments comes the cost of improving servers and even web hosts. I moved from shared to VPS but it was necessary. You might even have to hire people to handle out the extra engagement and tasks as your blog is a highly popular one.

        As far as time goes…wow I’m already working late so I probably would go into work overload and work longer on the weekends. Of course that’s just the sacrifices of being a successful blogger. We have to be ready for it if “when” it happens and do what we have to do to keep it going.

    Hello; I must say that this post really got me to thinking. You are right most of us are not planning on what we would do if our blog became the world’s most popular. And with all the posts on positive mindset you would think this is something that would come up more. You gave some real world problems to consider and followed them up with good questions for us to be asking ourselves. I am not ready for sure. I am still at the ten or less comments per post stage myself. but this post teaches us that it only takes one great post to go viral to make your blog tops online. I have had problems with a 3rd party ap before so yes i know about storage and bandwidth and have a shared account for now. I have a couple of people in mind who could help with the technical changes that would need to be made. time isn’t a problem but money sure is. if the traffic and comments didn’t come with more income i would probably be in trouble. so i need to work more on monitizing my website and blog. thanks again for the thought provoking post and take care, max

    I think about this all the time. Scalability is an important factor for bloggers to consider even early on. I have a solution, but the details are complicated. Essentially I am using a service similar to what Amazon offers for apps. Means I get cloud hosting for more up-time and if for some reason I get outrageous traffic I can quickly change things so my website doesn’t go down.

    One thing I could suggest to bloggers is using a cache plugin. This reduces the requests made to the server when you get massive traffic. Plus, it will help to speed up your website in general.

    That’s a whole lot of visitors in a short space of time! I really couldn’t cope with that. I struggle sometimes with 20 comments so what would I be like with a few thousand? :-)

    I enjoy getting comments, don’t get me wrong but as you say in your post, it takes quite a lot of time to respond to them.

    I know quite a few bloggers who don’t respond to comments but I don’t want to go down that route. I don’t respond to many of them in depth any more though because I think it’s more important to get more content out there and promote it.

    First of all, you never know which post of yours will go viral when you are writing good articles confidently. And when the day comes, I don’t think it’s going to ask for your permission :-)

    Congratulations on getting those 100s of posts on your posts and that shows you are pretty close to be there in the main league! That is awesome!

    Well, the key is to be prepared. Serious bloggers should step out of their comfort zone and invest some money in getting a good (really good I mean) hosting where the server will not die if there is a sudden rise in traffic or resource consumption. That is the reason I went for my own VPS hosting and launching the managed wordpress hosting for my clients. Hosting is very critical and as our blogs grow, this is the biggest challenge we are to face if we aren’t proactive!

    Hi Lisa, When I first started blogging I read an article by a very successful blogger whose theme was be careful what you wish for. He talked about having to stay up past midnight every night responding to comments because his blog was so successful. He quit blogging soon after that. I actually felt guilty leaving a comment on his blog after I read his article!

    You bring up such a great point. We all wish for a post to go viral but could we handle the traffic and the comments? I had to upgrade my account after blogging for about four months. I was sharing a Bluehost account with a friend but I was getting so much traffic that Bluehost froze her account, knocking her websites offline. Ouch. I moved my blog to a pro Bluehost account and everything has been fine since then.

    It’s funny because my posts with the most traffic often don’t have the most comments. I’ve never had over 100 comments on a blog, but that’s okay. So long as my articles help at least one person, I’m satisfied.

    We do need to be careful what we wish for though! :-)

        Yes, I could see where a blog could take over your life, but I agree with you, there should be an alternative to closing the blog because you got too many comments. You could even close comments after the first 100.

    Yes, I am SO guilty of not being able to reply to all the comments in the few recent posts on my blog because of some problem or the other or just being too overwhelmed with projects and of course, now with my Dad and family at home. It does become tough as the comments increase, which does happen with time and as your social circle and interactions with people increase. I wish I had a magic wand at times to reply to all the comments in a jiffy! I wonder who can replace you in doing that, because you are a different person than the other one you hire for such tasks.

    People, come to my blog and make 1000 comments. Take any post you like and do it. I want to know how it feels to be successful and what do when the great day comes. I guarantee I will answer the first 1000 comments. :)

    So please, come and make one of my posts viral and help me live this wonderful experience. Then, of course I will explain everybody what do to to survive success. :)

    By the way, I have a feeling that this post of yours will get significant comments.

    Have a wonderful day

      Thanks Silviu, I was really amazed by that post – it really touched many people. It was a little controversial too since many do not believe that you live to make someone else happy (that it’s a guarantee of a happy marriage) – what if that person still isn’t happy? Then what does one do and for how long> That was my concern with it.
      Right 500 comments – after that you would surely need a break. And then to go on all those TV shows. It would be like living in a bubble, which is why they say “be careful what uou wish for”, right? LOL, I like your call Silviu. I may tweet it out for you :) Thanks Silviu for your creative response here and have a great day too.

    Lisa,

    Well, I admit this post certainly brings up a few optimistic questions! First let me say congratulations on all of your comments on the recent blogging post. Woohoo!

    I honestly have not given it any thought. My blog is coming up on it’s first birthday and I am just glad to have made some new friends. I would love for more readers who have something in common with me to find a new resource.

    You’ve definitely made me think. I’ll be taking a close look at your questions with a hopeful viewpoint! Thanks for sharing all your ideas and experience.

    Have a great week!
    Karen

      Thanks Karen. I feel like 100 is nothing after seeing thousands, I really could not imagine that. I must find more ways to monetize if that were to every happen :) Congratulations on making it one year Karen – I’ve seen many bloggers quit before their 1st blog anniversary. I hope you have a great week too and thank you for taking the time to come by and comment today.
