10 pieces of advice for entry-level blog users

How to be a successful blogger

For the last few years, blogs have become popular
tool to exchange
experience and create communities online. Many
examples around motivate
people to start blogging. Internet is filled in with
more and more
interesting resources. It is always difficult to
start and oftentimes
bloggers who are new to this apply for help of
experienced bloggers so to
speak. Among the most frequently asked questions
are as follows: How to
develop a blog so others started reading and how
to occupy a niche in
blogosphere afterwards? Here are twelve tips on
how to do blogging in form
of proverbial wisdom (our ancestors knew how to
keep a blog).
1. Cut the coat according to the cloth. Come up
with a task to handle by
your blog. To create a blog for the sheer reason of.
The task of the
blog is going to be to keep you updated on as for
what is going on. It
is going to be possible to measure how effectively
the blog does its job on
every stage or how far away you are from
accomplishing the task.
2. What the heart thinks the tongue speaks. Define
a style and manner of
your blog so you could follow them keeping your
blog. Few people are
interested in disheveled blogs if only it is not a
personal diary. It is
difficult to find an audience for a blog on initial
stage if people
cannot get what your website is all about. They
might like 1-2 articles
and even subscribe for updates but as soon as they
get on email 2-3
articles on other topics, they will give up on you (if
only those are
not your loyal friends). Define what subject you
are good at and if
there are a few, you are better to create a few
blogs. The style you
follow is also very important because people might
not see you but they
will remember you due to your manner of speech.
3. Aquila non capit muscas. Write articles on useful
topics and what is
on a front burner. Even if you are not a 100%
expert in the area of
something, become one and write an authoritative
publication! Do not be
afraid to express your thoughts. This is what people
may value most of all
about you. Do not be afraid to be a rare bird,
oftentimes it makes it to
where people are around you.
4. For one that is missing there's no spoiling a
wedding. The world
changes rapidly and the area you are good at is
filled in with new
specialists soon enough who are able to create same
good tool for
exchange of experience and creating communities.
As soon as your
resource is no longer interesting, people leave
searching for new
development. If you have decided on making your
blog popular, touch on
the more global themes, look for trends in your
area, discuss them on your
platform, and use these trends. For example,
lately social media, behavioral
factors, location-based services and mobilization
and, of course,
optimization of conversion are the trends in
search-engine marketing. It
is hard to imagine a popular blogger who does not
have a Twitter account or
like button from Facebook in the end of each post.
5. Slow and steady wins the race. Do not wait for a
feedback right away. You
will have to try hard in the beginning getting no
comments or other
feedback. It is a difficult period when people
practically do not know
anything about you and all you need is patience on
this stage following on
your aim.
6. Heaven helps those who help themselves. People
like energetic, active
and brave. Show these features keeping a blog. Do
not post articles only
but also organize competitions, marathons, take
part in similar things
from other bloggers. It will make it to where you
will get to know other representatives
of blogosphere and receive more readers. Come up
with new points. What
more apart from posts might be useful for your
readers? Maybe some tool
or a chapter, a questionnaire or simply invites over
useful resources.
7. One man no man. It is very hard to achieve
success on your own, which
is why one should learn rules of networking. A book
entitled as Never
Eat Alone and Other Secrets to Success, One
Relationships at a time written
by Keith Ferrazzi is highly recommended for
reading. Get a community of
friends for your blog, they are going to support on
this stage. This
community is going to become bigger with time but
now you need someone to
keep your blog for. Let it be friends, invite them,
those who might be
interested in the topic you depict, ask them to
comment on your article. Make
sure that that circle of your contacts is right. You
know how they say,
that a man is known by his friends. Making your
circle of contacts
bigger make sure its quality is good because it will
affect development of
your resource.
8. Birds of a feather flock together. It is not
enough to provide with a
good content only but also make a present of it.
Find where people who
might be interested in your content can be. Share
with announces and
articles on the platforms you found. Do not focus
on your blog only,
look for like-minded people on different resources
including social media.
Use guest blogging and article marketing.
9. The more haste, the less speed. Critics is
everywhere and you will
not get away from it. Accept it understandingly,
be tolerant. Inappropriate
perception
of critics will make it to where your
authority is going to
decrease let alone the number of your regular
readers. Try to find a
common ground with your readers even with the
most unkindly ones. It
will bring a success over a long period.
10. We know not what is good until we have lost it.
It is important to
take care after a reader, to provide him or her
with comfortable options to
read your content both on the site and through
RSS-reader, give a chance to
get acquainted with other articles on the topic, to
make a site
comfortable and understandable. Any kind of
discomfort in the form of
captcha to leave a comment, uncomfortable text
formatting, too much of
advertising or oversaturation of color palette of
the site may lead to
losing readers.
