straight up, this will drive you into frustration. I am going to be all nice
and put it forward to you very early so that if you are on this path, you can
decide on what else you would love to do to earn cash quickly.
and have made it a lifestyle even, you will find this blog post very
resourceful. I am going to be sharing 7 ways you can become a better blogger.
This blog post at the end of the day will give you a newer, fresher perspective
to blogging as a whole so let’s get right into this:
intimidated when they are in the midst of other established bloggers. Let me
tell you a story. I used to know one of these established bloggers. He wasn’t
into blogging for recognition, he is just a “breeze in, make some mad cash
and sell blog” kind of blogger. He has a serious hang of the tricks. I
contacted him for some advice on what to do about SEO and I want to tell you
that I left him feeling drained and useless. I couldn’t call myself a blogger
because he belittled me. That lowered my blogging mojo for a while until almost
consecutively blog readers began to talk about how much of impact my blog has
had and still has on them.
wearing my blogger badge and doing my thing. The truth is that to be something
in any particular field, you have to act like it. You should act like a blogger
who knows what they are doing. If an Influencer comes to give you pieces that
do not go with your brand, politely turn it down and stick to what you have to
do to represent the brand you are working hard to build.
represent your blog like someone who knows what they are in for. Never cringe
at the sight of bigger bloggers. They are awesome in their own rights but so
are you. Speak up for your blog, share your blog, share your blog stories
unapologetically. You really are a blogger, act like it.
that’s clear so you are going to create a style from what for you and your
readers are comfortable with. Make your voice consistent. This is not to say
that you write the same type of blog posts everytime. No. But when people see
your work, can they guess it’s you?
visit very frequently. Let me give you an hint : except you are a celebrity,
personal blogger, you should create your style to suit your blog readers. I do not mean to say that you can not have your style before you begin to get readers’
style towards what your readers love the most. Lists do really well on some
blogs, for yours, it could be extremely long posts. Get into it if your readers
love the details. Open up wholly to them and give them every bit if they would
love to sit and read you. Develop your style around them and be generous with
On the road to becoming a better blogger, you will realize some of the mistakes that you have made, it is never too late to begin to make corrections. You don’t have to make the turn drastic. Gradually transition into your real self if you don’t want your readers to be disappointed. Situations may warrant that you meet up with one or many of your readers; in fact, you may stumble on any one in the mall, supermarket, in the bus, on your street, at the salon even! You lose integrity if you are double-faced.
This is what I usually advise: find where your tribe is and connect with them there. For instance, the majority of my blog readers on social media come from Facebook. I try to focus on Facebook the, I use Instagram for support. You can choose two of the social media platforms you are most comfortable with and on and have blogging fun.
It is also advisable to try to build your following on one of the platforms and then spread it all over when you have a good number of followers. Study other bloggers in your niche and then creatively use the most common among them to your advantage.
The reason some people want to associate with you is just because you are full of information, you hold nothing back, you give your best. Sometimes, we want to save the best for the last or save the best for paid services but there are times that giving it all out, everything increases your value in the eyes of your readers.
Quality content is also a good yard-stick for good SEO ranking and organic traffic. Search engines love it when your blog is quality enough to satisfy search engine users’ query. Quality content also makes people link to your blog very frequently.
lot of bloggers complain a little too frequently about this aspect of blogging.
Let me tell you something important : consistency has a lot to do with
integrity. You see, if you are going to always disappoint your blog readers
every now and then, you might have to check your blogging integrity. It’s okay
to blog once per week if that is what you can make work. Once per month is even
still not a bad idea if your niche excuses you. But as soon as you set the
routine, stick with it.
to bloggers who keep their promises. Yes, sticking to your routine is keeping a
promise. Start small, go easy if you are trying to find your feet, do a few of
the postings according to the schedule, then get into the routine. And actually
stick by it. You can increase frequency and pick up the pace as soon as you are
comfortable. Otherwise, stick to what you have built.
