5 Successful Blogging Tips for New Bloggers

by Arvind Kumar

Blogging is a platform for those who are really passionate about something. Every day, so many blogs are launched with so much interest. But, very few survive for a long time. Time is a very important factor in blogging. If you have patience, then you should continue blogging. If you do not have time, then you should stop blogging, because it takes time to grow a blog.

But, if you are really serious about blogging and want to be a successful blogger in the future, then we are on the same track.  So, today I am going to share some great tips for blogging so that you are focused towards your goal and keep working hard towards it.

Focus on work, not money

Money can make you think differently in a negative way. When you start blogging, I would suggest do not monetize your blog with any ads or affiliate products in the initial days. If you have started a new blog, then you should focus on the content of your blog. If you are writing good articles, then you will surely get a good number of visitors.

If you think unidirectional and concentrate on your work for the first few months of your blog, then you can see good growth of your blog. I would suggest, till you don’t achieve 1000 visitors per day, do not monetize your blog for money.

Once, you have a healthy number of visitors, then slowly start putting ads or affiliate products on your blog. Do not stop writing and promoting your blog content. We will talk more about these topics.

Be consistent with your writing

Writing articles may be very boring. In the beginning, you will be consistent but later due to less traffic, you might lose interest in writing. Remember, the blogs which are updated every day are ranked higher in search engines.

Regularly updated blogs are the most favorite of search engines, but they do not compromise on the quality. I would suggest blocking your time for writing articles. For writing articles, you should have a peaceful environment. There should not be anyone to disturb you while writing articles.

The more focused you are, the more you can think and write on any topic. I usually choose to write in the morning, when my mind is fresh and free. During the night after 10 o’clock is also the best time to write articles.

If you are a full-time blogger, I would suggest posting at the most 1 or 2 article every day for a new blog. If you are a part-time blogger, then do prepare a timetable for giving at least 2 hours for blogging every day. This way, you will be consistent with your 9-5 job as well as with your blogging.

Be unique with your blog

If you want to be a successful blogger, then you should be passionate about your topic. Your topic should be clear with your domain name, you choose. For example, if you writing about SEO, do try to use SEO in your domain name.

You should be very unique in your writing, do not copy paste other content on your blog. Try to capture all the topics related to your targeted keywords. The more detailed your article is, the more possibility it has to rank higher in search engines.

Do not compare yourself with others. Other blogs will have high-ranking and healthy traffic, but you should not think about them. You should focus on writing good quality articles, to beat your competitors in blogging.

Do remember, always try to give something new to your readers through your blog, which they can’t get in other blogs. Readers always love to read interesting and new articles, so if you can provide them these things, then your blog will surely rank higher in a search engine.

Sharing is caring

Sharing is the best part of blogging. If you have written an article and you want it to be read by most of us, then you should promote it in every possible way.

Social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Instagram, and Pinterest are the best place for promotion of blog post and images. This is the best way to get traffic to your blog. Free social media management tools are available to help you with your blog promotion.

If you have a new blog, then promoting your blog on the social networking sites will surely help in bringing your blog to next higher level.

Most of the blog articles are getting viral only on social networking sites; hence, if you have written a good article, then it might get attracted to different readers around the world.

Patience is the key

Time is a key factor for ranking blogs. New blogs take time to rank higher in search engines. More consistent and good content blogs get high domain and page rank from search engines.

The bitter truth is that it takes time to grow a blog. The search engines test your patience: How long you will blog? How consistently can you deliver quality articles?

Many bloggers quit blogging after a few months just because they are not consistent or they are not able to get traffic from search engines. It is not easy to achieve success in blogging. There are a lot of competitors already present which are giving tough competition to bring their blog posts on the first page of search engines.

Conclusion

I have shared all my experience about blogging in this article. But, if you really want to excel in blogging, then do read the experience of other bloggers as well. As long as you are really good in your niche, then no one can beat you in blogging.

Just remember, do not quit until you succeed. Hard work always pays off. Avoid all the negative thoughts and read some inspiring stories on bloggers who are now ruling the internet.

There is nothing you can achieve, if you have decided to be a successful blogger then go ahead and give everything you have.

    Hi Arvind & Janice,

    There way too many tips on how to become a better blogger, but the tips in this article are great.

    For instance, focusing on your writing is a great way to grow your blog. But to accomplish this you must have a blogging plan to guide you.

    Consistency is equally fascinating because it helps you build trust with your target audience. But how can you maintain consistency if you do not have much to write about? The easy way is to identify questions your target audience are asking and be the solution by problem answers via your content.

    Leverage sites like Quora. There you will find loads of questions that will give you topic ideas for your blog posts for a very long time.

    You can as well make a habit to read blogs of other well known writers in your industry to find out how and what they’re doing and follow suit.

    Thank you, and thank you too Janice.

    NB: Janice, I mentioned you in my latest blog post “what are key components of a successful content marketing strategy”. Sorry I forgot to let you know earlier.

    Arvind:

    Your section on consistency and time-blocking really resonates with me. I struggle to find the time around my other commitments but know that when I can make the time I can produce something worthwhile.

    I am yet to strike the right balance, and I am sure this lack of consistency puts off potential readers who never know when I might post next!

    Good luck with your blogging journey!

    Hey Arvind!

    I like what you said at the beginning, to focus more on work and not really the money. This is such a helpful tip for the new blogger. I know that ultimately the goal is to make some money, but that money is a by-product of the service you bring to the niche marketplace.

    You have to focus on actually helping others in your niche, that is one super important key to successful blogging.

    Thank you for sharing your tips here!

    Best regards! 😀
    I would also recommend practicing writing with consistency. This is something that has helped me become a better writer and a more prolific blogger. Practice, practice, practice!

      Hi Freddy,
      I found when I chased the money, I ended up frustrated. When I focused on helping readers, the money offers came to me.
      I also agree with your comments about consistency in publishing. Google rewards you for this!
      Thanks for writing.

    I like the advice of not focusing on the money. We can get so caught up with the idea that we might get depressed when it doesn’t happen and quit.

    • Janice Wald | at 9:48 pm

      Hi Waheeda,
      Thanks for writing us. Of all the tips in Arvind’s article.his advice to focus on the writing and not the money resonated with many commenters including you. I also agree with this tip.

    Hi Arvind and Janice,

    Great tips for anyone who is considering starting a blog or are not getting the results they want. Love how you said not to focus on the money.

    Many bloggers start a blog in hopes of making money. But the truth is that it does take time to start earning money. If you’re only focused on the money, chances are you’ll quit before you can create a profitable blog.

    Consistency is the key to blog success. While I don’t publish new blog posts on a daily basis. Since I’ve increased my blog schedule from 2x per week to 3x per week. I’ve noticed more traffic.

    It is a little frustrating at first when your blog is brand new. After all, none of your posts are being shared or no one is engaging in it. Just keep on blogging and eventually before you know it, people will start finding it and following you.

    It’s not as easy as everyone thinks. Personally, I think the most important thing to remember is that it takes time to grow a blog. Patience is a virtue that every blogger needs.

    Thanks for taking the time to share this.

    Have a great day 🙂

      Hi Susan,
      My whole life I was a very impatient person. If you looked “impatient” up in a dictionary, you’d find my name, LOL! Once I learned blogging is a marathon not a sprint, I became more patient about blogging. Now, I’m more impatient in other areas as well.
      I agree with what you wrote about the frustrations of blogging and the need for patience. Have you blogged about it? If not, your comments are a great start.
      Thanks, as always, for your detailed comments.

    Focusing on the work makes all go Arvind. I love focusing on the process of having fun, serving people, making friends and letting go outcomes. All works swimmingly when you fall in love with the process and trust the process, and all goes to custard when you obsess over money, so have fun, blog mainly for fun and you will position yourself to rock it out.

    Thank You Arvind , for sharing all of your advice. I personally, write my blog, or rather our rescue pup does, for the love of writing. After a year now, it is still a joy to choose the right photos to go with a new entry, think of the readers who may enjoy some lighthearted content and humor, and share my original songs.
    All you shared was so helpful. I think people are responding to your tip to not think of monetizing first. And to “paw-lways” write from your passion, an excellent reminder.
    Also patience, consistancy, setting aside time for blog writing content were all reminders. Thank you.

    Thank you Janice for hosting another blogger with grr-eat tips. It IS a process.
    And we all benefit from sharing.

    • Janice Wald | at 10:00 pm

      Hey Jeanine,
      Great to see you here this week. How are you?
      You are correct. Arvind wrote 4 tips. The one that is resonating with readers is the tip not to chase the money.
      I found that it was after I achieved success as a blogger financial offers came my way. So, my own experience proves true what he wrote. It sounds like you’re having a lot of fun over there at WassupPup, and I’m glad. Thanks for writing us.
      Janice

      • Jeanine | at 10:26 pm

        Have you come to visit the blog lately? You are probably so busy managing your own, PLUS life!
        But anytime you have to visit and comment would be grr-eat!
        Again, gratitude to you and this weeks guest for another informative post. Do what you love, and love what you do.
        The rest will come.

    Thank you Arvind for your great tips! It’s true that to be a successful blogger, you need patience, but a lot of patience. I like what you said, “Hard work always pays off,” this gives me encouragement to keep going and confirms that I’m in the right track. Also true, focus on your writing and it will pay off in the long run.

      Hi Vyvian,
      Thanks for your comments here and for all your support over the last week of my blog. I believe I saw you in the StumbleUpon community. Truly appreciated that you’re helping out!
      Blogging is definitely for patient people. I wasn’t patient at all when I started out. Now I’m much more patient in all areas, which I like.

    Good morning!

    I appreciate the advice; what stands out the most to me is the constant need to post. As an individual new to blogging, I’m still doing my research on how to get better and I’m amazed at how frequently everyone says to post.

    I would definitely say I’m a part-time blogger, usually posting twice a week. It seems I’m going to have to sit down and think about that.

    Thanks again for advice!

    Very Respectfully,

    Brian

    Thanks for sharing your experience and tips with us. Have a great day!
