9 Qualities Of A Successful Blogger Which Make You A Pro-Blogger

Sunday, November 23rd, 2014

Every day thousands of people are entering into this awesome and patience testing world of blogging but only a few are actually turning into a successful blogger. Setting up a blog is not a rocket science today, it as simple as abc. But why most of the bloggers fail to be as successful as they dreamed of? To answer this question I have listed below 9 qualities/characteristics that differentiate a successful blogger from others who fail. So, keep reading and try to acquire these all qualities to achieve your goals in blogging. This list can a long enough but I have only selected the top 9 qualities of a successful blogger.

1. Writing Skills

A successful blogger has great writing skills as writing is the basic skill for bloggers to create great blog content. Your writing skills are the major factor in determining your readership. Your blog readership flourish day by if you have good writing skills. As a blogger you don’t need to write like expert because you are not writing for a book or newspaper rather you should write like individual. Writing skills improve with every blog post your write. Just don’t rush publish your blogs post rather review them multiple times before pressing publish button.

2. Successful Blogger Needs To Be Disciplined

Being disciplined and strictly following a time schedule is key factor for succeeding in any profession, same is true for bloggers. If you want to become a successful blogger then you should be much disciplined. You should define a time-table for your blogging to make efficient use of time. Allocate your time for writing blog posts, social networking and blog commenting. This is all about time management. Write blog posts regularly according to your pre-defined time-table, this very important if you want to increase your blog readership.

3. Having Patience

Patience is one the most distinctive qualities of a successful blogger. Blogging takes a lot of time and you need to be patient enough to reach your goals. Blogging is not for impatient people who want to make money with their blogs from very beginning as it is not going to make you rich overnight. So, start blogging only if you have lot amount of patience.

4. Being Persistence

As a blogger you need to be a persistent person as you are not going to succeed in you first attempt. Blogging involves a lot of pain and it takes a lot of time and patience to put things in right place. All the successful bloggers you see today faced lot of failures in their begging and finally come across a great idea with worked for them.

5. Successful Blogger is a Good Learner

Another quality of all bloggers who manage to achieve success in blogging is they are very good learners and didn’t discontinue their learning process in-spite of achieving initial success. You should always be ready to learn new things to become a successful blogger. Daily visit other great blogs and learn something from them, this will surely help you a lot in your blogging journey and increase your knowledge. Reading great content is as important as writing great blog posts for your own blog, because reading helps you stay updated about the latest information.

6. Great Blogger is Great Communicator

Contrary to common beliefs that you are done once you finished writing your article or post, blogger’s real work starts after he has finished writing a great blog post and pressed the publish button. You can only become a successful blogger if you are good communicator. You should promote your article on social networking sites and be ready to reply all comments from your readers. So, you need to polish your communication skills to become a successful blogger.

7. Being Creative

Though being creative is not compulsory for every blogger but to stand out of crowd and make a name in blogging you need to be a creative blogger. Writing creative blog posts will dramatically increase you readership. Creativity is an essential part of writing to leave a great influence.

8. Working Hard

As I already mentioned that blogging is the name of patience and it involves a lot of hard work. To create great blog posts and maintain loyal readership demands a lot of hard work. A successful blogger works hard to find new ideas and remains active in social networks for the promotion of his articles. Don’t take me wrong, I don’t want you to work day and night rather make efficient use of time and keep a balance between your blogging and other daily life activities.

9. Successful Blogger Never Quits

There is a great saying “Quitters never win, Winners never Quit”. So, to become a successful blogger you should have a never to quit attitude. Keep trying and working hard until you reach your goals.

Benefits of Blogging Using WordPress

Friday, November 21st, 2014

WordPress is the most used platform for blogging these days. Not only bloggers, but even big business websites have also begun to use WordPress to publish their content. However, there are so many other platforms and publishing tools that could be used by bloggers and businesses alike. But why WordPress?

Blogging is taken up as a hobby by many people, especially those with an entrepreneurial insight or those who are good at something. Although I do not advocate part time blogging, I would say that it is good for a start. Most people who try to become bloggers give up easily, mostly because their blogs remain unattended and they do not get the recognition that they expect. This was why free blogging platforms were invented by Google and they were popularized with the ‘Blogger’ trademark. Though Blogger had attracted a lot of bloggers, it was quite shabby and not very professional. That is when WordPress came into play.

Initially started as a free blogging platform by Automattic Inc., WordPress gained more popularity among bloggers because of its well-woven features. It also had many themes and later on, it began to support developers. WordPress.com later branched into WordPress.org and became the most used engine behind self-hosted blogs and websites. Though there are umpteen benefits of blogging using WordPress, here are a few of them.

Easy Interface
In the early years, when the internet was just created, making a website was a tedious task. Everything had to be written in HTML codes. Later on, applications like Front page made this much easier. But blogging with WordPress is possible, even if you do not have basic knowledge of HTML codes. If you know coding, then you are a God to WordPress. Everything in WordPress comes with the click of a button. You can get insights on your site traffic, top posts, and anything you want using a hundred thousand plugins available for WordPress. Also, the WordPress Application, which is supported by most smartphones, helps you to control your blog anywhere, anytime. Though its options are limited, it keeps getting better with upgrades. This is the first benefit of blogging using WordPress.

Plugins, Plugins, Plugins
Everyone loves WordPress plugins, and these little things are also making the experience of blogging through WordPress more pleasurable on a daily basis. I always refer to the plugins as the ‘elves’ of WordPress. There are 34,554 and counting) plugins indexed in the WordPress directory, but there are many others available from external sources as well. These plugins do anything you need, and they are the second benefit of blogging using WordPress.

Easy Exporting/Importing
When a person practices blogging, expert bloggers recommend that they start with a free blog. In the case of WordPress, they will have a blog on WordPress.com. WordPress.com is much easier to use when compared to WordPress.org, and it is great to start with. But it does not get you good revenue. So when you decide to move to a self hosted blog, you will not want to lose your contents. WordPress has this import/export feature where you can easily export your contents from WordPress.com to your self-hosted site with the help of an XML file. There is a plugin for this as well, but this job would be a lot more tedious if not for WordPress. This is the third benefit of blogging using WordPress.

Customization
The main reason why WordPress became a hit is because it has so many themes. Blogger did not really look that good. Since WordPress encouraged developers to come up with more ideas, it became a community for bloggers. Everyone loves to give their blog that ‘unique’ look, and this is the fourth benefit of blogging through WordPress.

Social Presence
WordPress blends in with your social network accounts and also modifies your posts accordingly. It creates a strong social presence for your blog. Short links are also readily available, and they make Twitter posts much easier. You just need to link all your social accounts and whenever you publish a post, it gets broadcasted to all your social accounts. This is the final benefit of blogging using WordPress.

However, there are a lot more benefits that you could discover when blogging using WordPress. These are just the top five. Hope you found this article useful and enjoyed it as well.
