Blogging:Not So Easy

22 Nov

As tempting it can be to start your own blog, the knowledge about how not to-do it is far more important than how to-do. The great articles you see at blog don’t just pop-up randomly. They are made out a lot of sweat and some experience.

Blogging, not only being fun is also a great deal of learning. It is a great help in showcasing your writing to those millions and billions of people on the web or just get your voice heard to the same or even a larger crowd.

This article will deal with some steps you should take in order to make your blog successful.

1.) Be original

That’s what it is all about. CONTENT, YOUR CONTENT. You are on the internet with a blog/website just to show who/what you really are. Even if you notify the blogger that you have used his content in your post and given a link back to his/her article, even then, people wouldn’t like to read it because they would have probably read it somewhere else. This only works when you provide them with suitable descriptive comments of yours.

2.) Do some research about blogging (and yourself)

The future belongs to those who prepare for it today.

You need to sure about which blogging platform to use and your niche. Choose a niche that you are really passionate about otherwise your blog will be like a graveyard haunted by content that is of no use to the users. After sometime, even you won’t be likely to visit your blog. I’ll be writing a blog post just about this topic in the near future. I can’t give any assurances yet.

3.) Consider your writing style

There are in numerous writing styles. Well you probably won’t write “Howdy?” in a letter meant for your boss. You need to be conversational and interesting in the case of blogging.

4.) Think about the title

Nothing catches the eye more than the title. Good content is a waste if a suitable title isn’t provided. Title is what appears in search results. A good title will surely get you some traffic from search engines.

5.) Encourage comments

Don’t fear comments. Comments will tell you what people are thinking about your posts. Even if there are negative responses, try to analyse or just straight away ask them what they think isn’t good. Try assuring them that you won’t repeat the same mistake again.

6.) Promote your blog

Use today’s social media to the max. There are many platforms to choose from.

7.) Encourage guest posts on your blog

Guest posts provide your readers with new content and a fresh perspective. Try guest posting on other blogs too. It always is a great source of traffic. It’s a win-win situation for both the bloggers.

8.) Love your readers

Responding to comments is the first and most important step. Visiting your reader’s blogs if they have them. Leave supportive comments and even suggest they guest blog for you now and then.

If you think I have missed something, feel free to comment. If your list list is too long, you can consider about a guest post. Contact me at thepranavgarg@gmail.com for any further information on guest posts.
