The first thing I learned as a blogger is arguably one of the best tip I have ever received “Don’t blog randomly, find what works and work on it” and as I grow up I discover that following your passion and some experienced Blogger is very vital to your blogging success. So these 10 tips will help you if you want to start blogging or you are already blogging without success.
1. “Blog on a topic that you’re passionate about. Blogging is a long term business. If you’re not passionate about your topics, you won’t stick with it long enough to build a readership. Readers can also tell if you’re not into your topic, and won’t stick around.”
– John Chow
2. “My best tip for finding blogging success is to follow your fun. We all have access to the best practical tips through top blogging blogs, through courses, eBooks, videos, forums and all types of other tools. Yet 81% of bloggers never make more than $100 online. Why? They don’t follow their fun. They try to GET before GIVING. They’re caught up on outcomes, attaching to stats and money.
I built a way cool lifestyle and inspire my readers to do the same by advising every blogger to follow their fun. Your fun, passionate energy will make you shine like a lighthouse in a dark, stormy harbor, and when you’re just having fun with your blog the creative ideas, successful, influential bloggers and yes, money, tend to flow your way with increasing ease. You’ll act inspired, you’ll listen to intuitive nudges and you’ll do freeing but sometimes uncomfortable stuff by genuinely pursuing a blogging niche that is really, really fun for you to explore, to learn about and to blog about” – Ryan Biddulph
3. “Don’t measure stats too early. If you’re obsessing over daily numbers and you’re only a few months into your blogging journey, you’re wasting your time. It’s still too early to pay close attention to trends. After that, make sure you have Google Analytics installed.” –Jeff Goins
4. “Write for yourself first & foremost. Ignore the fact that anyone else will read what you write; just focus on your thoughts, ideas, opinions and figure out how to put those into words. Write it and they will come.” – Adii Piennar
5. “Give away free content that adds value to people’s lives “until it hurts” and they will love you and become loyal fans.” – Jeff Bullas
6. “Plan to invest in blogging for a long time before you see a return. The web is a big, noisy place and unless you’re willing to invest more over a greater period of time than others, you’ll find success nearly impossible. If you’re seeking short-term ROI, or a quick path to recognition, blogging is the wrong path. But if you can stick it out for years without results and constantly learn, iterate, and improve, you can achieve something remarkable” –
7. “Less is more. When someone arrives at your website full of ads, tag clouds, recent comments, recent posts, links to products, links to favourite posts, and every other kind of sidebar and footer content you can imagine, the reader gets one message clearly: you have no idea what it is you want to tell them. Have one clear call to action” – House of muse
8. “One of the most important things I have done to create success for myself, my blog, and brand is to build relationships with others in my industry. By building relationships with others, I have created my own tribe who is willing to share my content on a regular basis. By spreading my reach more people recognize my real estate content. This leads to more exposure, links that help SEO and brand awareness!”
9.”When first starting a blog, the most important thing to do is to just start writing and publishing. Many blog starters get caught up in the fear of publishing a piece with typos, a post that’s not meaty in its advice, or whatever other reason they may come up with. But when you’re first starting, you’re allowed to mess up. It’s better to experiment and fail early on to provide yourself with early learnings for future content. And by publishing more and more, you’re garnering more and more attention early on, which will help you in the long run.” –
10. “One tip for starting a blog is keep a consistent schedule , even if it’s infrequent. When your blog has been dead for months at a time it looks like you might not be in business anymore! Instead publicly pick a schedule, publicly state it, and stick to it. Writing every other Monday and actually making it happen is much better than writing three times a week then falling off the wagon in exhaustion a few weeks in. Plus, a clear schedule will help you get your blog posts written by providing strict deadlines.”
