Being a successful blogger depends on various factors, some of them are below:
- Why you are going to start blogging
- Why you want to be a blogger
- Who will be your readers is very significant factor
You should define your blogging objectives. It may be related to passion, hobbies, travelling, interest, health tips, education and many more. You may start it as a full time career but keep in mind it is time taking process. If you are financially strong then it is okay, if not then start blogging as a part time.you can be a nice blogger without leaving your present job. So if you are in a job please don’t left before clear planning, it is my personal opinion.Try to set a time table for blogging.
Passion is the most important factor in blogging, it enables us to identify our skill. Without having clear passion, the journey towards blogging, is always incomplete, therefore you need to understand your passion.
What should you do to understand your passion? Remember, what you love to do without being paid is your passion, so try to find your passion. You may be passionate about singing, dancing, writing, teaching, engineering, making different food recipes etc. These may be your blogging topics.
To express your ideas, in written context, grammatical skill is required, because if you want to spread your message around the world everyone can not grab your native style of writing, it should be global standard. Your word power will enhance the content what you are going to write. But it doesn’t mean you have to write as a writer, you don’t need to be complicated, being simple is great.
A blog post is the combination of texts, images, videos, audios and other stuffs. The sequence and arrangement of these stuffs attracts readers. They give more time on the post.
It is necessary to create some pages. These pages are necessary organs of your blog:
Without these pages your blog is incomplete.
Home: This is your the welcome page where visitors come to your blogging website via domain URL. The page should have enough description by which one can understand your website subject matter quickly. On my website, I have set home page as my latest post, therefore my blog page and home page are same. You may set it as static-front-page
About: This page describes about your blogging objectives. About page is the strength your website, therefore you should make it simple and clear understanding. If you have missions or visions, definitely write here.
Blog: A grid view or list view of your all articles can be shown here. Every article should have short descriptive view, with this, a visitor easily finds what he/she wants to read.
Contact: This page enables one who wants to query regarding your blog. Here you need to create a simple form asking required contact details of your visitor for replying back. You may create google map of your physical location.
To write terms and conditions page, there are many websites where you can create the page template. These templates are also acceptable for Google AdSense.
Now its time to write articles. You are going to set your blog means you definitely have some ideas of what you are going to write. A topic gives you idea of another several topics. Suppose that you are a yoga instructor and going to write on it, then it is more chance the first title which comes in your mind is “What is yoga?”. After that you may decide many related titles:
- What are the benefits of yoga?
- Importance of yoga in medical science
- Different types of yoga
- What is ashtanga yoga
- Perfect time for yoga
- Origin of Yoga science
- Difference between Yoga and Pranayam. and many more…
Also you may write on some general topics like:
- The best thing that I have done ever….
- 5 Most famous things on internet
- 10 ways to improve communication skill
- 10 fantastic ideas to start business with pocket money cost. etc.
These are few topics, when you start writing, automatically you will get more ideas.
Write the way you speak, this will increase your potential. Do not copy others. You are not going to get a higher degree like PhD. Write what you exactly think. When you read your article you will find that it is unique! Uniqueness makes one visible in crowd, so love what you write.
Basic concept of HTML and CSS
Having knowledge of basic concept of html and css is plus point. You can make the pages style of your blog as like as you want. You can understand menu and pages structure when you know basics of html and css.
Use images and videos
An image speaks more than a thousand words. Using images and short videos add clarity in your post. Use images wisely means, if you have less word and lots of images this will make your visitors confused. The ratio should be maintained. If your blog is based on text then the video length should be short in post, you may embed your YouTube videos.
This is important. Disclaimer notice makes your post reliable, and impacts on visitors positively.
Here is what I am saying, If you are not a doctor and your post is related to health then you must give disclaimer notice. For example:
Disclaimer: I am not a doctor, I am just providing these information on behalf of my personal experiences and some good sources of information. The information is only for educational purpose. Before doing anything please consult your doctor.
It is good prctice for giving credits. If you use free images, videos, audios from a website then must give them credits in your post.
Read some nice blogs
Reading other’s blogs gives so much ideas for blogging, this way you can enhance yourself. When you read other’s blog you acquire many things like page structure, layouts, writing style, knowledge, word power and many more.
Update yourself with new information by reading newspapers, magzines, books etc. Also keep your website source code updated. If you don’t update your website it will go slow. Be careful while updating, to keep your website away from any loss of data, back-up of your website before updating.
Creativity attracts anyone, you may show your creative style of writing in your post. creativity can be found anywhere- in texts, in videos, in audios, in images or any other things
Good SEO practices lead to be a successful blogger.
