There are mainly two types of bloggers. The first kind of bloggers are ones who blog for fun or passion i.e. they are not professional or full time bloggers. The second category of bloggers contains full time bloggers and professionals.
One vital difference between pro-bloggers and fun blogger is planning and organization. Pro-bloggers are well organized. They plan activities for their blog in advance.
If you are one of those bloggers aspiring to be a pro-blogger or to succeed in the blogosphere, there is one thing you should start taking action to be more organized blogger.
Organization and planning is necessary in every industry (only if you wish to succeed). One reason majority of the blogs on the web fail to generate income is because they lack planning. In this article I will share 5 hot shot ways to be a more organized blogger ~
5 Ways to be a More Organized Blogger
1. Get serious, you are a blogger ~ Blogging is not everyone’s cup of tea. Blogging is not a funny business. If you are a blogger, with some efforts you can succeed in it too.
The very first thing you need to understand is blogging is not easy. It is beyond posting posts.
You need to get serious about your blog. I am not asking you to invest more time on your blog. I am asking you to utilize the same time in a more organized way.
For the sake of your blog’s success, you need to work in a more planned and organized manner. If you are working without any aim and planning, it would take you as much as thrice time to get into spotlight.
2. Set aim and get fueled up ~ To get started first set a aim and time table. Start with a small and target specific aim. For example ~ something like “100,000 visitors per month” would be a nice target.
After you get yourself an aim, make yourself a time table. Making a time table is essential. It takes small amount of time and saves a lot of time later on.
To prepare a time table, sit down and write down things to do to achieve your target. To get started, write down title of 10 posts you’ll be going to publish in the coming time (I am not asking to write down the complete post, just write their names).
Decide how many posts you will publish throughout the month. On how many social networks you will share the post. Where you will spread the content on the web?
After deciding these things, create a new excel sheet and write them down. Additionally you can also set reminders on your Smartphone.
Divide equal time for each post. For example if you aim to publish two posts per week, provide 3 days for each of them. You can also mark the days and date when you want to publish the post on a calendar.
Prepare your posts ahead of the time. This gives you extra time for promotion and audience reach. It’s a wise decision to pre-select twitter accounts to share the article. For example if you publish a review about a company, it’s a good idea to share it with them on twitter.
Pre-plan when you will publish the post. Post at regular intervals and be consistent. If you are regular, your readers will visit your blog at that particular day for fresh content.
Also, pick a time out of your day for your blog. Blog regularly on that time.
You must be aware that I am student. So, I blog during the night from 11 to 12 after completing all the school work. Same like this you can also pick up a time for blogging as per your comfort. Pick up a time when you feel fresh and creative. Stick to this time every day.
3. Use a social media scheduler ~ There are so many social networks out there, and you can’t predict from where your reader might come to your blog. This makes it a necessity to share your articles on all the major social networking platforms.
As a blogger I have to share my posts on a total of 39 social profiles. Being a serious blogger, I don’t have so much time to devote. This is the reason why I prefer using social pilot.
With social pilot you can easily spread your posts across all your social media profiles in a single click.
Quite a few months ago, I published a complete and detailed review about social pilot. If you aren’t sure what social media scheduling and social pilot is, do check out my review article from here.
4.Spread your articles on blog directories ~ You need to attract bloggers on your blog. In order to attract them on your blog, you need to hang out at the places they do.
To get more traffic and exposure on your blog posts, share them on blog directories too.
Blog directories are place where bloggers and web-master share their posts. You too can share your articles on these directories and get noticed by bloggers over there. Be regular visitor of these directories. Try to strengthen your bond with other bloggers over there.
There are dozens of blog directories out there on the web. One such directory you can use is Blogengage, it is a social networking website for bloggers only. If you aren’t familiar with blogengage, you can read my blogengage review article.
5. Be consistent ~ This steps won’t bring in results until you are consistent. If you follow these over for a couple of weeks and leave them, it won’t result in anything.
You need to be consistent and patient if you wish to succeed.
Publishing one article every week on a specific day is more recommended that publishing 4 articles in any random week on any random day. Plan when to publish your posts.
If you finish a post before planned time, don’t stop. Start working on the other post and so on. Try to prepare a content heap.
Always prefer quality over quantity. If you think the post you are typing can be improved even more, give it more time. Publish quality stuffed articles.
