The secret to ever lasting successful blog is to be BOLD, just hear it for now what I say and I will explain you later, why? In this overly congested blogging industry there are millions of bloggers worldwide each out doing the other one, why does one successful blogger stands at the top alone from the crowd, is it the content he writes? Or perhaps the traffic he is bringing to the site? No, may be because of the advertisements he gets? There are so many possibilities but what reason stands at the top is one characteristic that makes your blog so powerful, is it our very own BOLD character we are talking about? Well, I would say it’s true to the extent you guys understand what I am trying to portray here.
I have come across so many blogs and blogging networks and read few profiles of the blogger as to how they started off, and what is their secret to success, etc. I found out there is a particular way that impacts the reader and especially when you talk boldly it has deeper impact. The worst problem with bloggers today is that they are overly cautious about their dignity, respect and the content they write for their readers. Doesn’t it feel too artificial sometimes, the majority of you might agree to me with this fact on my hands, isn’t it? I just want to ask a simple question to these bloggers, why can’t they be just normal, in real life, no one is smooth, calm, non-aggressive person as they portray themselves on the blogs network. Every coin has 2 sides, and so does the human nature, one is the professional nature and one is emotional character at home.
The bloggers today use various modes to get interaction going with their readers, advertisers and their investors – some might ask interactive questions in the blog and some might ask for comments or suggestions. The present generation people are too smart; wont they make out the artificial talks if someone tries to be overly friendly with them to gain something instead why not be straight forward and show them what the real person you are. That will, I guess bring them closer to you and as they will discover that connection with you, your blog will automatically be popular. People always find emotional connection with the blogger if they can connect to you as a person and not as a blogger.
I want to be very clear of what I want to tell my readers, be bold in your writings and let them hear what is unexpected this way people would get more attracted towards your blog, uncommon brings you more cheers and happiness and that stands true to blogging industry. Some bloggers waste a lots of time in collecting the words that wouldn’t offend any readers, but what’s the point, instead why cant they be straight and bold and speak what’s there in their minds, after all, blogs are all about talks – what’s in and what’s out.
Even if you are bold in your talks, you can persuade your audience and make them agree to what you have to say. Willingness doesn’t just come by talking sweet but talking the truth, so be honest and give a damn to what they think and write boldly being wonderfully creative.
For some reason, people have found that one of the easiest things in the internet world is “blogging”. The reason behind this can be the ease and comfort that the bloggers are having while writing the blogs. If you can earn money, just by sitting in an air-conditioned room, just by sitting on the chair and working at your wish and at your conditions, people will definitely believe it as a simple job!! According to the mass of people, blogging means “to gather some knowledge from internet and to share it with the people”, how simple?!! Is it so? Let’s see.
Blogging is a huge money maker in the Internet world. But, there is an immense competition in this field. For example, even if you search the word “Obama”, there are 1540000000 results currently available today!! So, even though Blogging is a profitable business, there are some factors that you should keep in mind, before starting Blogging. First of all let’s see the results of the survey done by the University of Texas with the help of Chikita; there are some mind shocking and heart breaking data in the survey. The survey was conducted for the top most 50 thousand blogs, who made the revenues of $500 millions totally in a year. But, the main theme is the distribution of the $500 million dollars. Let’s analyse them.
The Top 1% of the bloggers earned around 20% of the total income.
Can you believe that? That means only 500 top ranked blogs earned $100 million!! It can be the most depressing news for the new comers, right? But it isn’t so. There are no monopolies of the top rankings. If you are new to blogging, one thing you must learn, if you want to get succeed in the blogging business, try to follow the leaders. As the leaders have utilised their entire investment, experience, talent and also their understandings, you just need to follow the same path to reach the destination. Use your creativity on the path the toppers have created.
The top 5% earned almost 50% of the total revenue.
Here the scope for the others has increased marginally. The top
2,500 blogs earned $250 million. So, in this category, on an average all the top 5% blogs earned $1million every year. So, here we can analyse that if the quality of the content is good and also the outlook and key words are good, you can reach to the top 5% and can earn $1 million every year. In this Recessional scenario, earning this amount is too good. What say?
The top 15% earned almost 90% of the revenue.
This is the final verdict of the survey. If you have the potential, talent and a killing attitude and can reach the top 15%, your chances of earning of good amount raise like anything. So, if you are able to sustain in the competition and you feel that it’s worth time spending in the blogging business, thee data suggests that there are high amount of probability for the financial growth.
Now, what is the main theme required for blogging is the basic quality and talent, let’s discuss them also.
You join the Club of Blogging only if you have creativity. The top 15% are the bloggers, who are able to create an interesting post from any of the given topic. Creativity makes the men live and Blogging is the job for the live wires. Blogging is not to write lots of phrases and decorative language, but it means, to provide the right material required for the right topic and in the right language that can be understood by anyone and everyone!!
So, use your creativity in searching the topics that should be focused and worth information that is required to the visitor.
Be a good Communicator
Blogging is the job of good communicators. If you are not interacting with more people, you won’t be able to understand the views of others and Blogging is for others, not for you. So, to write the post by focussing the readers is the basic feature of Blogging. Good Communicators are always good Bloggers, that’s my experience!!
Be a good listener
Speakers can become the best only when they develop habits of listening!! So, if you are a good listener then, you have got the approach of understanding the needs of people and also you have got the talent to read the minds of others. These are the best qualities of a good Blogger. Listen to others and think then only you’ll be able to write good things.
Be a good reader
The Bloggers are always a good reader. They don’t like reading, they love it!! Wherever they are getting a good topic, they’ll definitely read it and appreciate the articles. Reading is the prime source of getting knowledge, when you read it your mind runs in that direction. This boosts the creativity of the person.
If you are having the features abovementioned, you can definitely think to make the huge money in the Blogging field. So, make money online and log onto Blogging.
There are so many people who start their Blogging job with immense expectations and lots of dashing attitudes. But, sometimes they make so many silly mistakes in the initial stages of Blogging which can not be repaired afterwords! These mistakes can cost quite higher in the later stage.
If you see the prime reason of road accidents in the recent phase, you will see that the root of all the accidents is the hurry made by the drivers. Also the same can be the case with the Blogging industry. If you make hurries in the Blogging beginning, the habits of yours and also the moods of the first time visitors can be deteriorated. So, it’s quite important to make the better beginning as the good starting is the half work done!!
Let’s see what the initial stage of the Blogging requires.
Launching up only after proper set-up!!
There are so many Bloggers who are in a hurry of launching the Blogs, so what they do is that they start the Blog and make it live even before they post and article r even before the link setup and also all the technical setup is being made.
There are so many things over all working for a Blog, you need an article to post, the designs to be done. The RSS feed should be made, making arrangements to ping the Blog to the search engines and also to make sure that everything is in the proper functioning mode. So, only if these factors are fulfilled quite properly, the Blog should be made Live. There should be no hurries at all in the starting of the Blog as if the visitor make a visit in the very first sight and finds the Blog insufficient; it’s a big initial loss as the impression is the most important factor in the online business.
Pick up the right topic and steadily follow it!!
It’s better to choose a line of action while writing and creating a Blog. There are numerous topics for the Blogging like personnel finance, health, and technical Blogs that are the most visited ones. But, the ideal way of putting the post is not to mess all the topics in one Blog. Even of you do it, do it in the right manner that the reader should get the feel of your Blog. There are so many Blogs on the net, where you can never find the root of the Blog written.
So, stick to the topic and if possible, make the Blog category wise or create different sections to different parts of the Blogs to have the best possible results and also to earn the simplicity.
Blogging is a continuous process, don’t break it!!
Blogging in the internet industry is not like a block-buster movie, which once gets released and becomes a fabulous hit, but it’s like a serial in which you have to fill up by all the episodes regularly and continuously.
If there is a long break in the Blogging, there are brighter chances that the Blogs will lose the readers and also they will lose the interest in your Blog, which is a vital loss. Blogs should be continuously posted as per your comfort, by at the deciding period, they must get posted.
Interact with the readers
Make a continuous reading and also react to the readers who have posted some questions or comments for the Blogs of yours. If you are a good response payer, you need to have the replies to the queries and also comments of the readers. This reply making can serve the role of a good friend and also play a psychological boosting to the reader and he gets converted into a continuous reader.
The readers are the best possible money-makers for you and they are the persons who are going to yield the revenue for you. So, react them, response them and make the Blogging business flourishing.
Point-to-point writing is the key point
There are various types of log writers but one thing should be I common that the Blog should be long enough to cover the object and short enough to keep-up the interest of the readers!! So, have a write-up style of an easy and smoother Blog writing. There should be no lengthy and longer essay-writing in the Blogs. Go point to point.
So, these are some of the points that should be considered and also they should be done without hurries.
When there was no internet, people were totally ill-aware of the fact that internet can ever make a progress like this, it was sounding like a joke those days!! But, the development did it and today the Internet has become the life blood of all the business houses.
Before few years, the Bloggers had almost no value in the eyes of people. They took the Blogging job as the free-men’s job!! But, suddenly in a very short span, the Blogging has become a huge job all over the world. It has become a skill and also the most emerging job of the times.
Blogging is going to bounce further
True it is!! Still there are so many areas of the world that are on the developing edge of internet and also are growing rapidly in that direction. For example, the latest survey says that India can become the Third highest Internet user in the world in coming 5 years!!
So, there are so many opportunities world wide for the Blogging industry. There are Business houses that have come to know that there is no option for Blogging in the online business markets. If anyone wants to survive in the markets, they’ll have to have the online market and the online market totally depends upon the Blogging Business!! So, in the very short period, we will be seeing the biggest bounce of the Blogging business!!
So, the Bloggers needs to get ready for the further opportunities and also for the upward trend of the business.
