Default 5 Top Tips To Be A Successful Blogger

Blogging has fast become an online business venture all on it's own, bloggers are writers who write blog posts on their own blogs and they share something unique with other related niche bloggers and webmasters out there, they have the passion to carry on with blogging, no matter what.

It's estimated that over 70% of blogs are left and abandoned online, this is a waste of server space obviously, but what of the initial spark of trying to make something work online, writing online in blog form takes time to build up, but it is well worth doing as it can raise your profile and credibility in your niche market area quite quickly if you do it right.

Here are a collection of some of the best tips I have found in the area of blogging:

1. Email a new reader of your blog

When you have a blog established, you may get readers to your blog as this is the ultimate purpose of your blog, so when you do get these readers, why not email them and welcome them to your blog, this could work in many ways, first it could make them think, that was quick I only just subscribed to this blog last night and then the blog owner is emailing me welcoming me to his blog, so they might spread the word of your blogs content to their friends who may also be interested, so it's a good strategy to employ.

2. Join a couple of forums related to your niche.

Getting to know your niche market better by visiting a few forums online in the target market that you will hopefully dominate or be a key player in is something that is well worth doing,

you can link to your blog and profile page in your signature line ( this is a unique sentence that includes your blog link and a description about you or an opportunity.)

Participating in forums and getting to know the top members and key players is what you should be trying to achieve for maximum networking potential.

3. Interlinking archived posts from your own blog and others,

If you have a lot of posts, you could consider linking to past posts that are related to your main topic, so that you can provide further information and this helps to build your seo ranking for your blog,

you can add links within your blog content or at the end of your posts for further reading, just remember that every post on your blog is and should be like a webpage of it's very own, so target your keywords as such.

4. Planning your blog posts well in advance

Planning of your blog posting is a really easy way of simply coming up with a blog title and then just running with it online to see what you can write about, if you are knowledgeable about the subject matter then you will make this task even easier,

I often look in forums, if posters ask questions and discuss certain areas of your niche this is always a basis for some quality blog posts, try it and see what you come up with.

5. Blog commenting on other blogs not just your own

Try and comment on other peoples blogs, maybe you have never visited their blog before and you could maybe introduce yourself in the comment or just interact with the discussion thread at hand, a word of warning though, forcing promotional copy and paste sales

copy in a comment is not good for your potential and essential commenting, as what you need to establish is that you have read and liked the blogs content and you deliver a comment that says so or that is genuinely inspired by the blogs content.

You can add these blogs that you find to your feed reader so you can keep up to date with these blogs when you can and interact with them on a regular basis.

Remember that blogging is a long term process usually and it can take time to build up your blogs traffic, so just write useful content and keep blogging.
