How to be an Effective Blogger
Blogging is nice topic to to be discussed. Writing on hubpages is a blogging activity. We can doing many things while blogging, Such as: writing, upload picture, put a video, monetize blog, promotion and many more. Sometimes we have a question. Do we always update our blog? Good question. But the answer is depend us. The first time before blogging, we may have a plan. We take a part in the blogging world for fun or another purpose. How much time do we invest in these activities? Part time or full time. We can see many bloggers outside dedicate their life for a good purpose, even to reach their dream. So, the result is different between each other.
This time I would not discuss about technique, because many hubbers have written about tips and tricks about blogging. Even we can saw many hubs talked about blogging tips. In this hub, I am not talked about using plug-in, how to read page, or about ads placement. But I want to talk about how to be an effective blogger. I think we can learn many tips about blogging by browsing around the internet, by googling or from e-book. But this topic related with our self.
I am not internet Guru or internet marketing coach. But I try to share in my mind about blogging based on my experience. As you know I am only private teacher who like help people from my knowledge and I am glad to share with others. Maybe from blogging activities it will increase my knowledge, increasing my passion in writing (one of my hobby) even get a little money from blogging by google adsense. At least this hub gave me a motivation and new spirit in my blogging activities. Do you want to be a success blogger? This is not only measured by how much money we get from blogging by monetize blog, but this has become our identity as a professional blogger. You can find the simple tips below.
The first key to be a successful blogger is writing articles. What kind of article do we choose? We can choose many topics, like hobby, business, technology, sport, health, making money online, and many more. I believe we all know about this. For me personally, I like unique idea on my writing. In this section we also talk about content. The more and better content in your writing, it could boost more traffic for your blog. It automatically will bring more reader. Sometimes readers come to our blog to search useful information and they want to learn from us. So better give something useful as an idea for writing blog. As a top blogger, they always know how to write more effectively, how to store it, and how to make them easy to understand. With combine some keywords to get millions visitors. They always update new information. So, the blog appearance looks fresh with new content.
Active to analyze
Successful bloggers are not passive or silent after posting. They always look to their readers, watching carefully what readers want and what the response from readers. That's the useful of comment box. We can see about positive and negative opinion of the readers from the comment box. That's why I also check every comment which came to my hub and if I have time I always reply all the comment wisely. To be honest is the important point. If it good I always say good if I can't answer the question I'll try to say honestly. Top bloggers always study the readers statistical. Such as: where do they came from, from what site, even they came from search engines.
If you are a newbie, you probably feel the difficult time to start blogging. But don't be afraid to learn and keep learning for a better result. For my self, I always learn and learn. This is like school for us. There are two type of learning. School is type of formal learning. But when we learn from life experience, discussion, e-book or even from internet forum is type on informal learning. This made us always update new information. Curious and want to learn keeps you felt younger and your brain more active.
A Successful bloggers always write consistently about their chosen subject. Even they write about something outside of their topics, they always find related of the same topic and the same idea. In this hub we can usually find the word "Related hub or you can also read", with a big hope to get many visitors. If we make a blog about health, we can choose many categories related the topic. Such as: diet tips, kind of disease, healthy food recipes, herbal remedies, alternative medication, and many more. Although it looks out of topic like food recipes, but it still connected with the topic. Many top bloggers always consistent with the time. They usually determine the time, when they have to post or write the content.
We have strong vision for the future
Before we start to blogging we must have a plan. We always have clear purpose with our blog. We don't want stuck just for now. We have to think the future start from now. To be famous or become underground blogger but get a lot of money. It back to us. I think we all want to exist in blogging community as a blogger. Maintaining the existing in blogging is more difficult. But if we believe this we can do that. Bright future in front of us.
Blogging with the purpose to get a lot of money is not like a get rich scheme. But it needs hard working. Many top bloggers who produce millions dollar doing some trial and error to become famous and get a lot of money from ads. Even they sleep a while in a day to build great blog. I think we have read my hub about "Eight Blog Making Millions Dollars". We can see the people who get a lot of money from blogging. How they get thousand even millions visitor in a day. This can't be done just in one night. They also working hard to create famous blog. We can see many great bloggers, like: Jeremy Schoemaker, Mark Frauenfelder, Pete Cashmore. We can learn from Pete as a mashable blog owner. He said that blogger not only full time job but as a bloggers don't get much sleep. It represent that we need hard work to get better result.
Start from ourselves
If you have a blog, a simple question for you. Who is the owner of the blog? The answer is you. The second question, who is the boss? I repeat again, the boss is absolutely you.There were many successful people who work only from home, working for themselves, becoming their own boss. We can get it all through the blog. If you want this thing, you should be able to maintain yourself. No one will fire you if you're late, because you are the boss. We can see many information through the internet, but if you not take action from now. You probably only an audience, while other people success in front of you. All information will overload if you not doing anything. This section only for blogger. If you just a reader it's not a problem. All contribution as a blogger came from our self.
