Five Steps to Being A Successful Blogger

I remember when I first started blogging, I kept looking for the "secrets and tricks" to make my blog successful and big. It turns out the "secrets and tricks" aren't really "secrets" or "tricks" at all, just common sense.

Here are five big steps that will take your blogging success to the next level

Step one:

Stay informed.

Nobody wants to read a blog full of bombastic language. Don't kill space, do your research before you type the first word! People can tell if you don't know what you're talking about, plus the blog post will be boring and repetitive.

Step two:

Keep it updated! No one wants to read a blog full of bombastic language that hasn't been updated in 5 years. Try to post good material, often. Downloading an app for your blog can really help with this since you can write "on the go." If you don't have a smart phone, I would suggest posting at least once every two days. Weekly blogs are okay, just make sure people know you're doing a weekly blog so they don't expect new posts everytime they hit "refresh."

Step three:

If you're posting about an item or a review, keep it within the price limits of humanity.

I've seen so many failed blogs because they kept posting about the latest, most expensive gadget that Bill Gates could only dream about affording. No one wants to be teased by your blog, so try to find items that are affordable for the average person. If you've found a really cool item, of course you can blog about it! Just don't talk about expensive items exclusively. What rich person uses the internet anyways? They've all got mind chips.

Step four:

Keywords keywords keywords. If you don't add keywords to your post, no one will find it when they search those keywords, and how can your blog be successful if no one finds it? Simple, it can't. Add keywords that are relevant to your posts. If your post is about cats, and you add the keyword "shoes" just so more people will find it, some people looking for shoes can get angry and post some hate on your wall; not good publicity.

Step five:

Stay ahead of the curve.

All of the hype about Twilight is soooo last month. Try looking up "The next big thing" on Google, and pay attention to trends that are coming up out of the dark. The blogs that post about it first usually get the most visitors. The blogs that try to keep up are the wanna-be's.

The basic rules.

Everybody needs basic rules for a blog. No hate posts, no discrimination, stay on topic, eat the rich, throw in some comedy if you can, and don't make a troll blog!
