Essential Blogging Tips For College And School Students

1. Don’t bunk your classes. College is a place where you can learn and blogging is one of the places where you can apply it. So don’t bunk, attend them. Degree is important!

2. Promote Your Blog. Spread your blog’s brand all over your college. Tell your friends about your blog and ask them suggestions.

3. Attend Blogger’s meet and Camps. You will still be a frog in a well if you don’t attend them. ( Thanks Arun! 8) ) Register for these events and interact with them in group and open discussions.

4. Read Other Blogs. Find blogs related to your blog’s niche and start reading it! Analyze the style and presentation of the articles present there.

5. Stick with your schedule. Create a time table and fix a time for blogging. Don’t do blogging after midnight.

      Ok. I'm going to start a blog this is clear. Especially the fact that it's quite interesting for Employers attracted me. Cause it is just simply right. A lot of employers will read it and probably like it, so it is an addition to your resume!

    • Sarinkumar

      Really true post Pradeep. Only those students with consistent hard work and passion can succeed in blogging.

    • Zachery Radue

      I never wanted a trampoline for my children because I thought they were unsafe, but when I read a lot of safety articles around here I was impressed. After that we ordered one. It was very easy to put together. My 4 year old son adores it, he even wants to take a nap in trampoline! I honestly recommend any kind of bouncer.

    • Amit Agarwal

      Very true… i am blogging because i love blogging.. Its fun to interact with so many people and share knowledge

      I would also agree with your list. I think blogging is also a chance to try out things wich you learned as a student and also to improve the things you learned.

    • Domain name registration

      It is a nice idea, because it will real help in long run, both academically and finance wise. But must make sure that it does not disrupt is education and academic performance.

    • John

      I believe wholeheartedly in your article. Blogging is a way where students can learn and hone their writing skills too. Teachers have always encouraged students to take up blogging as a hobby

    • Rajeel

      IMO
      1) Blog is a document to present your passion in any subject to all consistently
      2) Blog becomes a historical document and proof of what you were thinking and doing at a certain date and time in life
      3) Blog makes you improve the habit of writing and presenting
      4) In true sense writing blog is creating something new and any creation provides joy.

      with regards
      Tushar

    • Tobias

      I think students should start a blog because they can create theire own diary and share it with hundrets of interested readers. Have a blog is kind of really interesting and you can stay connected with other people, friends, authors and visitors. Having a blog is much fun and so nearly every student should create own.

      I’ve been encouraging my younger brother to blog. He had started but stopped along the way. He’s studying computer science in college. I guess he has no confidence on his writing skill yet. I agree that blogging is a good resume, I’ve read it in a newspaper.

      Great advice for newbie bloggers (NOT only for those who are students). Blogging improves your — writing, communication, marketing, presentation and technical skills apart from other benefits.

      I don’t know if companies like you to commercialize your work. Say if you say that you make good money from Blogging then trust me they are not impressed to give you job.

      Many employers have this clause in the Appointment letter that you can be a part of anything which makes money in a commercial way.

      On the other hand a blog like yours isn’t personal anymore or is it :p ?

      well said pradeep…

      Sure Blogging has a great future …I totally agree with simran and Ajith .

      Blogging is not easy as it look like….you can even work in a office bcoz u are going to do a single job assigned for you but in Blogging A-Z all should be done by you..Mainly First 6 month is the crucial period of new bloggers

      If one has a passion of blogging he must read many articles in blogging, seo especially SMO bcoz many bloggers has good and quality content but they failed in marketing and quit blogging soon

    • Samuel

      Nice post bro! is nt dat easy but once u plan ur objective and knw wot you are aiming for, you will definately make it well am a student blogger lol i still have a long way to go may GOD help us all (amen)

    • Ajith Edassery

      Totally agree with Simrandeep. It’s not for all and not sure if 1 out of 1000 students can be a good blogger πŸ™‚

      However, as a mechanism to improve your writing and social networking skills, it may be a great mechanism. But that’s not gonna fetch you job in top companies πŸ˜› In my opinion, blogging may give way to some kind of social network content publishing in the future and hence it may not be a sustainable income stream over the years. Let’s remember this topic and debate on it after five years πŸ™‚ In the meantime, let all students focus on ‘education’ and not blogging πŸ˜€ Btw, I have nothing against young student bloggers… In fact, I like the writing skills of some of them.

    • Simrandeep

      Well if someone don’t have passion for blogging then they should not start a blog. I see most of the bloggers are starting blogging just for the sake of making money and such bloggers just copy and paste other’s content. We need original writers in the blogosphere to maintain the quality of articles.
