by Tanya Shah

Blogging is a trendy career option for people who have a crazy imagination and a unique writing style. But apart from that, there are a number of factors which contribute to the making of a successful blogger.

Recently blogging as a career option has taken the attention of a lot of people of different age groups. Several surveys have shown that bloggers are now earning a good amount of money writing in various niches such as food, travel, lifestyle, fitness, and sports.

So, what are you waiting for…Read on the top twelve ways to become an unbeatable blogger and show the world your creativity in different genres. The possibility of earning from home is one of the top aspects of making people keener to work as bloggers.

In today’s scenario, blogging has become very common and everyone wants to make money with it.

So if you want to be a successful blogger you need to understand that your blog needs not only to be innovative and informative but also communicative and intellectual (definitely not showy intellectuality), so that people get attracted and get interested to continue reading the blog.

12 ways to be a successful blogger:

Here are the 12 ways that can make you a successful blogger:

  1. Expressiveness

If one becomes impatient and disturbed while doing work, it hardly succeeds. Your expression of your inside is very important to succeed in blogging.

  1. Standard and faultless writing style

The content of your writing matters the most after all but presentation and fine use of language do have an impact on the readers and attract them to read more. Making silly mistakes must be avoided. It lowers the standard of your blog.

  1. Extracting your own experiences

Inspiration from personal experiences tends to grow skills. Everyone has experiences in life but what is required is to extract the essence from it and incorporate into the flow and emotion of writing.

  1. Writing to the point

You have to write not all you know but actually, what people want to know, like to know, and need to know. Writing lengthy and detailed text does not attract audiences to blogs. It makes the blogs monotonous. A blogger needs to be crisp and specific while he/she writes.

  1. Knowledge and know-how of the subject of your blog

Your blog needs to knowledgeable and also interesting at the same time. We need to have enough knowledge about the topic before we write a blog on any topic.

However, the experience you gain you should not stop you from reading and exploring. Reading other blogs increases your knowledge and exploring your thoughts introduces us to new perspectives and points.

For example, if you are blogging on a travel blog, then you must have a keen interest in traveling and you must acquire knowledge through  first-hand experience of visiting the place; only then can you write a successful blog.

  1. Connecting with your readers

One of the best advantages of blogging is that you can have two-way communication with your readers. They can contact you through your comment system or contact form on your website if you have one.

You can get immediate feedback if they like or dislike your posts. You can reply to them and discuss with them with any issues on your blog.

This will also make sure that you are continuously improving your blog by getting feedback from your readers.

  1. Sharing your content

One of the best way that will make you a successful blogger is by sharing your content on social networks and other bloggers. You can share your content on all the social networks, social bookmarking sites or by doing guest posts on other blogs.

There are many content marketing tools that you can use to promote your content.

Many top blogs allow guest posting options where you can submit your guest posts and link your blog to your article. When the readers of that blog visit your blog and become your reader.

Sharing on Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter, and other sites can make some of your great content viral.

  1. Branding

Branding will help people you remember the name of your blog. They will directly come to your blog to read your content. There are number of simple ways to brand your blog like a problogger.

The first thing I will recommend you do is to create a Facebook page for your blog. You can start posting all your published posts and other useful content on your page.

When people start following you, they will know more about you and your blog.

Another best way to make your blog popular is by creating your own YouTube channel. It’s easier to get traffic to your YouTube channel than your blog.

YouTube is an effective way of branding your blog. If you get good traffic on your YouTube channel, there is also a possibility of making money through the YouTube partner program.

Twitter and Instagram can also help in branding your blog.

  1. Use “I” and “we” to connect with your readers on an intimate level

Blogs are personal write-ups which give the people a sneak peek at your views on a topic. Try to connect with the people by using the first-person narrative. If people can relate to your ideas, then your blogs will appeal to them on a greater scale. So do not use formal language as people will not feel interested in your blogs. Trying getting inside their minds and create a “top-of-the-mind” recall.

  1. Giving more time and effort

You need to be disciplined and regular to blog; otherwise, you may lose loyal readers and fail to get new readers attracted to open up your blogs.

You need to be interactive and comment on posts on your blogs. Your work does not finish with writing the blog. If you desire success, you need to be consistent and persistent, and also patient.

It is a continuous process of blogging, commenting, replying, promoting, and then again blogging.

  1. Creativity is a boon for bloggers

Creativity is not a must. At times know–how and experience can make your blog informative, helpful and interesting at the same time. However, in the long run, unless you have creative skills and innovative ideas, you can’t go too far in the way of becoming a successful blogger.

Now it depends on varying blogs. As in the case of narrative-based blogs where you have gained enough expertise through experience, like a particular sport or profession like doctor, astrologer etc. can write their heart out and receive praise. But still, they need to write in a creative style to attract even more readerships and become successful.

  1. Writing a blog is not enough

The main purpose of writing a blog is to create an image or a brand. You do not want people to just read your blogs, you want them to follow your blogs and create a group of loyal readers who will look up to your blogs for solutions and information. Blogging is not sufficient; you must aim to create a brand for yourself so that you can expand your territory.

These are the few different ways to be a successful blogger. You need to have audiences for your blog for it to become popular, helpful and successful. Certainly, that’s not easy as for nowadays there is a number of freelance and company bloggers everywhere who writes for various blogs.

However, that doesn’t mean that there is no need for blogs anymore. There is always a need for better blogs and new things always come up demanding opinions, thoughts, and discussions.

Instead of thinking there is a lot already done and nothing to do further, it is required to think that what’s done isn’t enough and new perspectives and newer approaches to explaining ideas and facts open new doors for exploration.

Wrapping Up: How to Be a Successful Blogger

Host blogger’s comments

Readers, I look forward to your views: What did you think of Tanya’s tips? Which was her most important tip? Are there any important tips you can add which can go a long way toward being a successful blogger?

  1. Freddy G. Cabrera

    Hey Tanya!

    Your tips are on point. One of the most important tips, for me, is to be creative and become an expert in your niche.

    You have to invest in your education so you can help out as much as you can in your niche. You want to become very knowledgeable about the topics your niche audience wants to learn more about. This is one of the most important parts of successful blogging, I believe. Once you are at this level people will just come to you for help and they will want to learn more about you and what you have to offer.

    Become a smart blogger and follow all of the tips you are given! 😉

    Thank you for sharing your tips here!

    Best regards! 😀

      Hi Freddy,
      I am reading all the time to be more of an expert in my niche. When I have time, I go to forums and ask questions to learn more.
      Can you please answer a question for me? What’s the difference between a forum and a hub? I know you use Warrior Forum so I figured you would know.

      • Freddy G. Cabrera

        Hey Janice!

        You know what, that’s an interesting question to ask.

        I would say that a Forum is a place where people talk about many different topics and subjects that are related to each other. And, a Hub, is a place that is more topic specific. This would be my best way to answer your question.

        Overall, the difference between the two is not a lot.

        Thanks for the question! 😀

  2. Jeanine Michaels-Leftwich

    Thank you Tanya for the great reminders and your tips.. Each one was helpful, so thank you for sharing. I found creating a U tube channel new information, and wonder how one does that? Also branding, and #10. The work doesn’t stop with your entry.
    Any ideas on the U tube? That could be fun for our pup blog. Good luck to you on all your future endeavors, and gratitude from fellow bloggers!

    Hi Tanya,

    Your article is amazingly great, I cannot agree more free with the tips your outlined in this article.

    It is good to be knowledgeable about your niche subject as it will help you be able to reach the hearts of your readers, thus convert them to loyal subscribers.

    However, you need to interact with them to find out what they topics they love to read and engage with to be able to reach the heart. That way, you will not only be writing, but also building your brand.

    Thank you for sharing.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Moss,
      I agree with your implication that these tips overlap. You can’t have one without the other and expect success. Good point. Thanks for writing.

  4. Penelope Silvers

    There is so much that goes into creating a successful blog! I like to be expressive and create beautiful images with words that people can share. I think you have to have fun with it. If you’re not having fun, maybe you should move on to something else. The branding part you brought up is something I am still working on and developing. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Neeraj Jivnani

    I must say you are having the immense knowledge of the topic. This post is very useful for the people who want to be the successful blogger.

    Well done
    Keep blogging.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Neeraj,
      I agree. I am always trying to improve my knowledge of blogging, SEO, social media, productivity, etc. Thanks for writing.

  6. Erika Ann

    This was a great read! The tips you shared were very simple yet informative. This is a recipe towards a successful blog but I think new bloggers should not be scared to mix and match strategies. Nothing compares to experience and finding the right taste for your blog. Cheers

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Erika,
      Thanks for writing us. I like your metaphor: What Tanya wrote IS a recipe for blogging success. I also liked your point that we need to mix and match. Doing just one alone won’t bring us success.
