Some time back I published an article on 10 tips for Beginner bloggers to be successful, Today I am publishing the checklist of 5 things which I learned after blogging a while. In my till now, blogging carrier of near about an year , I learned several things, the same I share with the readers of this blog. Blogging isn’t as easy as people perceive it to be. The more serious you get towards it, the more you discover and bigger be your problems. When I wrote at my blogger blog, the biggest problem was to find content, sooner or later I ran out of content and ideas, the second one was to get the “Initial traffic and readers for my blog”. I Blogged for about 4 months with almost no traffic, the only ones to read my blog were my friends and family members. After this I left blogging about common topics and started writing from what I learned from blogging.
How to become a successful blogger ?
Blogging isn’t walk in park, specially if are struggling to be a pro-blogger. At the same time blogging can’t be called rocket science as well. With right tools and techniques every thing can be achieved, the same applies to blogging too. But what are these ?
(1.) Hard work : Nothing can be achieved easily, and the same is for blogging. If you think you can be a great blogger overnight ; wake up. A blog requires hard work, from things such as article writing, to article research and up to little things such as creating a logo, everything needs time and hard work. Hard work is something you should never neglect if you want to be a successful blogger.
(2.) Patience : The great blogs you see today were not created a few months back, they have been there for quite a few years back. These blogs are result to hard work and time. It takes time for readers to get attached to a blog. You have to be patient, it is not like one day you have no visits, you wrote an article and the next day it has 999 hits. It takes time for a blog to get in spotlight. Once you are in the spotlight, things go easy. But until then, you have to patient.
(3.) Consistency : You need to be consistent and regular at your blog. Posting one article per three days is better than posting 20 articles on a random day. To win the race, you have to be in it, no matter how behind you are, you have to try your best, again and again until you win. Most of the folks start blog, blog for a while, and when nothing shows up, they leave it. Be patient and consistently try to make your blog better.
(4.) Walking around : The web is wide, and despite of in which niche you are, there would be countless number of blogs. To stay in the competition, you have to know whats going behind you. Subscribe to the blogs which publish similar content to yours.
Try to read more and more about your subject, grasp as much as you could. It won’t have any side effects but would help you write and serve readers with better content.
(5.) Motivation : People around will always De-motivate you, unless you have really nice environment. When you won’t see anything coming out of your blog, there will be a time when you would wish to leave these sort of things. This is indeed the time to hold on. As I told above, once your blog gets in the spotlight, things go smooth.
Final words : Hard ships are stepping stones to success, you won’t get success without them. When I started blogging there were merely two persons who spoke in my favor. Once you achieve to get your blog into the spot lights, more and more people will praise you. People would tend to turn at your sides.
