Blogging just might be the hardest thing you'll ever do. There are tons of blueprints available at your disposable but it's really easy to get confused and just say forget this crap. Being a blogger means late nights and early mornings, but if you work hard it also means free clothes and trips around the world. Here are six things I've learned in the past six years about successful blogging. And I promise you, if you are not doing these things...your blog probably sucks!
I go back and forth with bloggers about this. I believe that the 80/20 rule is ruining new bloggers and their blog. I think that if you are an established blogger you can most certainly write 20% content and promote 80% of the time because the content exists. This is something that I do. But I’ve got SIX years worth a content (four years of really great content).
If you’re just beginning, you will need to build up that content. You will also need to build your voice within your community. This is what being an influencer means. You have to build that trust with you and your readers. You and your blog readers are in a loving committed relationship. Your readers need to know that they are valued. And the only way to show value is by spending time with them giving them great content. Once you’ve consistently been giving them stunning content for at least a year, you can maybe take a break…for an hour or two!
Whether you’ve been blogging for 2 days or 2 years the six tips above are golden in my opinion. Chime in below and let me know what tips you’ve learned along the way!
