Building A Successful Blog

Many people start writing just for pleasure like myself and find they really enjoy it. This holds true for blogging too. If you are a blogger and do it to update your friends on your daily rendezvous or things happening in your life and space you do not need any structure or advice as you can use a blog as you please.

If you are serious and want to make a change in your blogging style and also help your bank account grow, I have found some useful tips that will help you along the way.

Write as oft€‹en as possible: Most people are busy, however if you can make time then writing daily is the way forward. If you cannot do that write on certain days and make sure your readers are aware.

Choose a topic that you are knowledgeable about. Do not think that blogging is a one hit wonder. It takes a few years and a lot of blogs to get success. So find a topic that has scope and that you will be able to write for a while.

Pick a topic that has a lot of substance: you can write about yourself and make it interesting or check around to find what has captured the interest of people. Do not choose a subject that has been beaten to death.

Be consistent in your blogs: Consistency is the key, so if you have a following and are unable to blog then keep your followers informed.

Link your blog with similar blogs: You may believe that linking your blog with another bloggers article will make you loose your followers, however there is strength in numbers and the other person may return the favor.

Join another Blogger or writer: Find someone with a similar interests topic can write pieces together

Get a following: At first your blogs may only be read by family and friends, however as they circulate your blogs you will slowly get a larger following.

Use Social Media: You can use all the channels on social media to feature your blogs. Google picks up most articles and blogs and if you have keywords it can increase the number of hits on your site.

Ask for advice and opinions: Have spot where people can comment and give their opinion. Remember to reply to all comments and thank the people who took the time to write any comment, positive or negative.

Make your presence felt: Be the specialist on the subject your are writing about .Research, research research.

Write with your heart and not your head: Write with feeling be passionate about your subject, unless you are writing a technical article

Build up on the topic chosen: if you start a topic then you should have enough material to continue the topic. If you do cannot continue as your knowledge is limited start another category after asking your followers what they are interested in to keep them interested.

Relationship building: Keep in touch with your followers they are people and not just numbers.Start conversations with your followers,show interest in what they have to say.

Write your blog on your interest and your passion. Use your imagination to capture your audience, as the saying by Shakespeare goes all the world is a stage

I hope I have been able to throw some light on this topic building a successful blog. I may have repeated some points but I felt it was necessary as they are important and needed to be emphasized.
