Have you ever looked at a blog that only had a few posts and no followers? Most people start blogs without knowing that they will need to put in hard work to get to the number of followers that they want. Successful blogs are based on having traffic to your site, quality writing, and sticking with the blog even when it seems like its not going anywhere.
When you create a blog, your first priority should be writing quality pieces. This step is most important because even if you get traffic to your site, what will they read? The content that you write needs to be high quality to ensure that people continue to come back.
Once you have followers, a lot of your site traffic will be returning visits; therefore, you should try to give your readers the best writing that you can.
I know so many people that want to start blogs to make a living online. I often come off as negative and tell them that there are better ways to making money online but they refuse to listen.They always point out some famous blogger and this is when I break down that bloggers marketing strategy and they claim that they can do the first thing. These are people would have a hard time writing a 3 page paper let alone a blog.
I suppose my message is that blogging isn't the only way to make money online.
Yet people try to do it everyday, these people normally don't understand SEO or even content. They don't realize that they need to write about things that will attract people. I have one cousin who thought she could make money just writing about the President.
Blogging is probably a term that you have loosely heard thrown around in many conversations. Most people's perception of blogging is having an online diary talking about their boring lives. You may even think that you need to understand technology in order to be a great blogger. Those two false beliefs can be holding you back!
It used to be that blogging was a form of self-expression where people wrote about anything and everything under the sun. However, blogging has evolved into something where you write about anything and everything that's related to a particular topic.
