A successful blogger is not a person who is earning millions of dollars. He is a person who has gained a large number of real followers via his blog. All successful bloggers have something common in between them, and that thing is etiquette. If you just analyze the stories of successful bloggers along with their blogs, you can find out the common things with ease. Each and every blogger blog has a different reason and a different aim. But to reach their aim, they follow some etiquette.
Blogging with Passion
Well, we can see a lot of people have started to blog due to one common reason; which is to gain money and success in a short period. They feel that they can get money with ease via blogging but they are totally wrong. Blogging must be done only when you are passionate about it. If you are doing it just for the sake of money then you cannot be successful with blogging. So, start and continue blogging only if you are passionate about it.
Blog About What You Love
This is also one of important factors in the field of blogging. Don’t start blogging in a niche you don’t like even if it has more money than the niche you love. You can never do better blogging about the things you really don’t like. The monetization income may be lower from the niche you love, but you can do it better than anyone else, as you love it.
Practice Before You Preach
Readers read a blog to get some knowledge about the subject being written by the blogger from their experience. So, always try to implement and practice before you write. This will even help you to gain better knowledge of the thing you are going to write about. You will also be able to understand it properly before writing about it.
Target the Readers Not the Search Engines
This point is really worth understanding. Many bloggers write content targeting search engines in such a way so they can get a better position in search result pages. This may give you better traffic but not real followers. To get better followers, target the readers of the blog instead of the search engines. That is, write content in such a way that readers feel good and stay comfortable while reading it. But you can do some keyword research for your existing article and make it SEO optimized, so that it can rank well in search engine also.
Many bloggers say that they are passionate about blogging before they start blogging. Soon, however, they find it difficult when success does not come quickly, and they quit. Well, they make a mistake here. If you are really passionate about blogging then wait. Be patient. Patience matters a lot. You can’t be a pro or successful blogger in just few days or months. You need to give proper time to it because you can’t develop followers within a day or week you need months and years for that.
These are the main common points of etiquette found in successful bloggers. There are many other points, too, like, be regular in writing content on your blog, always write which is needed, do not write unnecessary stuffs, help your followers in whatever way you can, etc.
