Top Tips for Blog Success

Posted on


My tag line is "creating content online since 2009" and for years I used to call myself a pretend blogger. I kind of fell into it for SEO purposes on my ecommerce site but as the years went by, the blog I wrote began to take a life of its own. I don't claim to be a coding expert and whether you are a new, aspiring blogger or one who has already begun to grow, there is always room for more improvement and development.

Tips to Become a More Successful Blogger 1


Blogging is great because it’s so versatile – some people view it as a hobby whereas others take it much more seriously and earn a living from their online presence. But whatever blogging means to you, there’s no reason not to try and be as successful as possible thanks to your efforts.

So, how can you become more successful in your own blogging? Here are some top tips, tricks and ideas to help you out.


While it may sound straightforward, the more that you practice, the more you are likely to improve. However, this doesn’t just mean churning out endless posts about topics no-one is really interested in. Instead, you should do plenty of research, check out other blogs and get creative with your idea generation. Once you begin to let small parts of everyday life influence you, you are bound to be well on the way towards curating a better, more interesting blog.


If you are just starting out in the world of blogging, one of the most common pitfalls is to begin writing about anything and everything. However, what you should do is try to pick a specific niche and stick to it. It’s impossible to be an expert on everything, and many general blogs fail to take full note of the specifics of a particular topic. This can lead to dull, flimsy content that may end up losing your readers – the exact opposite of what you want to achieve!


Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that you don’t need to do marketing just because you don’t own a business. In fact, for many bloggers, their blog is effectively their business anyway, so if you don’t actively promote your work and try to expand your reach, you will only be making yourself suffer in the long run. Even if you aren’t looking to expand fully into SEO, there are still plenty of techniques used by digital marketing professionals that you can expand into your blogging. Go to this website for more information because sending out one tweet per post is never going to promote your blog effectively.

Similarly, another important part of blogging is the sense of community that can develop. Spending time actively getting to know other bloggers and investing in their blog and their content is a really valuable way to build strong connections and develop relationships within your industry. Of course, it may be more valuable to get to know bloggers within the same niche as you, but even chatting to a blogger who posts different content may be a great way to get handy tips and ideas for your own blog. Some of my best online blogging friends have become "real life" friends so it is not only good for your professional persona but your personal one too!.


On the surface, this may not initially seem like a particularly important part of life. However, this isn’t to say that it is unimportant – quite the opposite, in fact! Sometimes, blogging can seem like a difficult, thankless task. Day after day you are beavering away at your blog, writing posts, sharing content and interacting with others. When you are caught up in the blogging whirlwind, it can be all too easy to feel trapped or stuck in a rut, as though you aren’t making any progress. This is the point when many bloggers can end up giving up, but you should try your best to stay persistent and maintain your approach. There’s no point trying to sugarcoat it – blogging is time-consuming, lonely and often thankless, but when you finally reach that milestone, there’s no better feeling than watching all that hard work eventually pay off.

Of course, every blogger chooses to approach blogging differently. However you choose to make the most of your blogging, the fact remains the same – if you want to become more successful, you will have to put the extra effort in. But regardless, the rewards are sure to be more than worth the while.
