Blogging is really fun and a lot of people are getting into the game everyday.
Even though blogging is fun we still have a large percentage of new bloggers who come and eventually quit after a few months of starting, I have discovered the major reason why many of these bloggers quit too soon and this post will be talking about 5 things every new blogger must know.
Going to start a blog? Then also check the 5 things to keep in mind before starting a blog.
#1 – Blogging is Not a Get Rick Quick Scheme
After observing the majority of bloggers who quit too soon I discovered many of them stopped blogging because their expectations has been cut short, many of them thought that they can just start a blog today and begin to make thousands of dollars from doing nothing, when they eventually discover that they are wrong they then decide to quit.
Blogging is not a get rich quick scheme but rather a great online business model for serious people, blogging takes time and effort.
#2 – P,P,P -Patience, Passion and Persistence is a Must!
Another very important thing to note when blogging is that blogging requires you to have some great attributes which are patience, passion and persistence. The reason for this is that blogging is not that easy and you will face a lot of problems from different angles when blogging, it is your passion that will keep you going when you face these problems, blogging also takes time before you get results and being patience will help you wait till you get the right results. Also you need to maintain concentration in Blogging.
It is also very important to be persistent because some things are not very easy to get but you will begin to see positive changes if you keep trying.
#3 – Always Adapt to Change
As a blogger, it is also very important to always adapt to changes because he that is always adapting to change will have little problems.
There will always be changes and in the online world it is very dangerous not to adapt to these changes. For example, social media is now very important yet many bloggers tend to ignore social media.
Try as much as possible to quickly adapt to change and you will always get a lot of benefits.
#4 – Always Make Effective Use of Your Analytics
Another important thing is to always make effective use of analytics on your blog, I am not trying to tell you to be addicted to checking your stats but I am saying you should know what works.
For example, you might want to observe what is the best time to publish your post in order for it to get maximum attention, you might also want to observe which type of post gets the best traffic. Another great way to make effective use of analytics for your blog is by taking a look at where most people come to your blog from, which search engine keyword are they using to find your blog, you can now use this data to improve your blog by optimizing it and improving on your strengths.
#5 – Your Readers Deserve Some Respect
When blogging it is very important to give your readers some respect instead of just ignoring them. Many bloggers go to the extent of abusing their readers thereby failing to realize that they can do nothing without their readers. Earlier I prepared the recommended ways for respecting your beloved commentators & readers.
It is also very important to reply to comments from your readers and try to answer their questions because this makes them feel more valued thereby doing their best to help make your blog a success.
Blogging has its own set of rules and doing what is right will give the best results, the above are 5 great things every new blogger must know.
