A successful blogger is what every blogger wants to become. What does it takes too be successful? Well success can mean different things to different people. For some people Success means gaining hundreds of followers; for others, it may mean being recognised for their work (exposure, Likes, Forwards, Reposts, etc.) As a blogging Advisor, my measure of success come from the comments and feedbacks that i receive from my readers. 🙂
These are the things that can make you a successful blogger if you start following them:
#1 Be consistent
Be consistent with the type of posts you write and your schedule of posting it. Your readers should know what kind of content they can expect from your blog and when they can get a new post to read.
#2 Write Valuable Content
Give your readers something valuable to read. Write posts by thinking of what your readers might be interested in reading. Give them what they want and they will keep visiting you again and again. Use images to make your post more attractive
#3 Engage with Visitors
Readers are the one who take your blog to next level. If your readers are happy with you then they themselves will share your blog with others and believe me no other marketing is better than word of mouth marketing. Keep interacting with your readers. Answer their queries in comment. Be polite and friendly. Treat them as if you know them.

Don’t just limit your friendship with your followers to Social sites. You are not a Celebrity. Try to meet them in personal whenever you get a chance. Do it once, you will come to know how great it feels! 🙂 Also they would become your permanent readers and promoters 🙂
#5 Guest Post
Never hesitate to share your articles with other.Write Guest Posts on other blogs. It would help you to reach more people and if they like your post, then they will surely visit your blog.
#6 Write Different
Always try to write something different. By different i doesn’t mean to ask you to move to new topic, but to go deep into your niche and search for the things that are very less spoken but can be beneficial for your readers. This would also improve your ranking on Google.
#7 Focus on one social media channel
Focus only on one Social media channel. Targeting multiple social networking platforms will not be that effective than targeting one social network and building good number of followers. Once you have good number of followers on a social network, you can easily get established on others.
#8 Go the extra mile
Don’t hesitate to go the extra mile. Don’t limit your words when writing a post. Try to explain as much as you can. Do the same thing when writing a guest post for a blog.
#9 Don’t let the fear of criticism strike you
Repeat. Don’t let the fear of criticism strike you. Bloggers never criticise each other but keep motivating each other. Thats how we grow. But their might be a time when someone criticises you for your post, don’t get demotivated. Just learn from their criticism. Think what made them criticise you. If you can find a reason, improve it. If you can’t find, then let it go. You cant keep everyone happy.
#10 Write like you are writing to a friend ( but no bad words of-course! 😀 )
Treat your readers as your friend. Write in a way that they feel you have written the post for them only. Also keep taking readers opinion through comments or by creating polls and surveys on your blog so that you can understand what your readers are more interested in reading.
