5 Tips Every Newbie Blogger Should Follow

Although making a blog is easy, it is the next step that can be a monumental challenge for newbie bloggers. When starting their blogs they have a hunger and desire to succeed but this often fades away with time, as their blogs register slow growth and they are not so sure anymore whether they would succeed in this endless blogosphere.

However success in blogging is only a matter of following a few basic steps and implementing some strategies. Here are some tips that should surely help newbie bloggers to make their mark in blogging:

1. Select a Topic You Are Passionate About

If you blog for money and write about any random topic, even though you don’t have the slightest interest in it, you are bound to fail as you will find it extremely hard to post regular content later on. There are a plethora of bloggers who have tried doing this but it was only a matter of time before they abandoned their blogs. On the other hand, if you remain focused on a topic you are passionate about, you will be able to write good quality content on it and you won’t ever have a problem coming up with new ideas for posts.

2. Update Your Blog Regularly

A successful blogger is one who updates his blog regularly and keeps posting useful content for his audience. Not only does posting regularly help build your credibility in your chosen niche but it also helps in SEO as search engines often love blogs that are updated on a regular basis. Try to maintain a good posting frequency with which you are comfortable, so that your readers are not disappointed when they expect a new post from you but do not find one.

3. Engage Your Readers

You must always remember that you are writing for your readers and their feedback is extremely crucial for the growth and success of your blog. Hence you must write interesting content and invite your readers to comment on your posts. A good comments count indicates the popularity of a blog, so you must always strive to engage your readers in the discussion and encourage them to comment on your posts. Though all feedback might not be positive, you must learn to take negative criticism in your stride as well as it will help you become a better blogger by improving upon your mistakes.

4. Keep Nagging Away At Backlinks

As a blogger you should be aware of the fact that backlinks are extremely important for your blog in terms of its search engine rankings. While building backlinks in bulk can definitely hurt your rankings, if you keep building backlinks regularly at a decent pace, soon your blog will have hundreds of blogs linking to it, which in turn will help your blog rise in the search engines for its desired keywords.

5. Network With Other Bloggers

With the advent of social media marketing, networking has also become an integral part of blogging. Interacting with other bloggers and building good relationships with them will go a long way in establishing your credibility in your niche and you can always count on them to help you out whenever you have some blogging related questions in mind that you need an answer to.

    Great and useful advices, I really like your point on the importance of networking. Getting connected with other bloggers inside your niche is really important, without some productive and valuable contacts you haven’t got any chance for a success..

    Selecting a Topic You Are Passionate About is really important because if you studied in arts background or you have a good knowledge in a politics or social stuff you have to write on it because you could produce good content compared to if you are writing something related to science.
