Hey guys! Welcome back. I had a question yesterday from a follower and I replied back with a brief response. But I wanted to do this post to go further and give more advice. I think this will be more beneficial than what I had planned for today anyway. So if you are interested, just keep reading.
Tip #1: Understand your audience. Your audience are the people reading your blog and coming back. Don’t disregard them or ignore them. They will become your friends and your biggest supporters. Know what they like and what they want.
Tip #2: Writ for yourself first.
Don’t start thinking you are going to make money, especially right off the bat. Don’t write to be famous or to get a lot of followers. Do it because you love it.
Tip #3: Be consistent.
Have a schedule. I recommend posting at least once a week, but two or three would be even better. Keep it consistent as much as you can.
Tip #4: Be true to yourself.
Don’t write about things you don’t care about or have no strong take on. Write about things that are interesting and meaningful to you, even if they don’t get a lot of views.
Tip #5: Give it time.
Your blog won’t grow over night. It takes time and a lot of effort to get where you want to be. Start out with small goals. I remember when I got ten followers. I was so excited. I’m still grateful every time I get a new follower. Not every day will be great. There will be times when you only get three or four views. Don’t let that discourage you. Keep writing and you will hit a breakthrough.
Tip #6: Interact.
Interact with you followers. If they take the time to read what you right and comment on your post, the least you could do is respond. Make them feel appreciated and known. They are more likely to come back. Interact with other bloggers. Making friends in the blogging community is great. They can help spread the word of your blog, give you advice, be your friend, and so much more. Don’t be afraid to reach out to other bloggers. They will likely welcome you with open arms.
Tip #7:Be passionate.
This goes back to writing about things you care about and staying true to who you are. Show that you are invested in what you do and what you write about. People will notice.
Tip #8: Be honest, humble, and personable.
Be someone others can relate to. Write about things that can also apply to other people’s lives. Don’t just write about yourself. Write about things you are passionate about and want to draw attention to.
Tip #9: Be flexible.
Not everything will go as you imagine it. You may have to change your schedule. Don’t be afraid to switch things up to fit your schedule whether that schedule change is temporary or permanent.
Tips #10: Have fun!
Having a successful blog comes with a lot of time and a lot of hard work. But remember to have fun with it. You started do this because you wanted to. Don’t turn it into a chore or an assignment. It shouldn’t be a stress. Just have fun with it!
