How to create an Successful blog?


I found amazing tips that you can add to your blog.

       1 .  Provide Value

This is the most important factor in creating a successful blog. You have to provide some value to your readers for them to want to read your blog and come back for more.  What is providing value? It’s the content that you create or a service that you provide. You create something that has value to your reader  and the more value you create the more people will notice your site, recommend it to friends and link to it. So you will get more and more new and regular readers.

How do you know what has value? Well, put yourself in the shoes of your reader. What do you think he or she would really like to read about? What could help him or her in some way in life? The more value a post can give to your reader, the more popular it is likely to be.

       2. Market your blog

When you first start out blogging no-one except your family and friends may know about your blog. How do you get attention and those first visitors? I found that, just email other bigger bloggers in your niche and tell them about your blog and your best articles or to submit – or let a friend submit your best material to a social bookmarking site.

You can’t sit around just hoping people will find your blog. You have to create good content and then you have to tell people about that content. However, if you have a new blog you may want to create some content like 5 to 10 good, valuable posts before you really start promoting it. An almost empty blog may leave a leaving visitor with a bad first impression.

     3. Learn from more experienced people

This is the key in any area of life and can really help you to improve quickly and avoid wasting time. Spend two or three weeks reading lots and lots from the massive archives of Problogger. Then you will learn a lot about blogging, marketing, monetization and what you should and should not to do.

If you are thinking about creating your own blog or have just started one I choose for reading the big series Blogging tips for beginners over at Problogger.

     4. Optimize

Like with any other area in life it’s important that you learn from your own past and mistakes and from others. Then you improve and optimize your blog, business or diet. Don’t forget about this part, think about what worked well the last few months and what did not. Think about what you learned about headlines, social bookmarking and color-schemes. Then experiment and try to optimize the different parts of your blog.

     5. Be patient

We often tend to miscalculate how much time is required to reach the desired result. Don’t buy into myths about quick success. Don’t buy into your own calculations or fears too much either. Study other bloggers and learn how their audience have grown. Create reasonable expectations. Be patient and keep on creating, marketing and optimising your blog.

    6. Formatting is pretty and important.

Instead of just dumping your text as one big blob into a post use such things as subheadings, lists and white space. It makes your content so much more attractive and increases readability.

    7. Don’t think about what everyone else may think.

After your first big wave of new regulars has arrived you may start to experience a sort of stage fright. You may think “Oh, now I have a hundred regular readers, a hundred Jon’s and Marry’s waiting for some new content”. Then you start second-guessing yourself and worry that someone will be upset, mock you or that you will somehow screw up big time.

I just focus on the fun and excitement of the article I am writing and nothing more. Feeding your own fears will not help anyone.

     8. Future posting is your friend

In WordPress you can set the date and time for a post to appear on your blog. So if you are going on a vacation for a week you can write a few posts and then spread the posts out over the week. WordPress will take care of the posting while you are skiing in the alps or floating on in the Mediterranean.
