How to be a better blogger?

I had on my mind since beginning if  ever in Pensitdown there will be first guest post then that will by Atish brother. I am presenting the excellent guest post by Atish. I am overwhelmed to see his encouraging lines on the topic. Do check this useful tips. 

This post is strictly for Bloggers! If you are not into blogging then you should go back.

Blogging becomes so ubiquitous nowadays that the competition between bloggers is fierce. When there are more competitions you have to improve yourself and do something that makes you stand out of the crowd.

be-a-better-bloggerYou might find so many bloggers who are blogging but out of them not all are credible, trustworthy and helpful but on the contrary there are many who are good. Being good in blogging is something you really need to stand out but it doesn’t mean to post killer content only. You need to do a lot of hard work and follow many guidelines to make yourself a better blogger.

Here I am sharing 12 ways that might help you make yourself a better blogger:

1. Have a blogging plan

When you start your blog, you should have a plan to work further. Your plan should include:

1. The article publishing frequency on the blog.

2. To do keyword research and insert them in article.

3. To build links for your blog so that you can rank higher in search and grab more traffic.

4. What will be your social media strategy to promote your blog there?

5. What monetization ways you will implement.

You must have a plan on these topics and even more things at least for next 3-4 months so that after that period you can track the success rate which can give you clear idea as what things are working and what not.

2. Learn to work hard with patience and consistency

No doubt hard work is the key to success but if there is no consistency in your work then it won’t help you alone. You have to do work very hard with consistency so that your blog never stays stagnant. Stagnancy can kill your blog slowly. When you are consistent, it shows your devotion towards your blog and this surely makes you a better blogger.

3. Have patience

Hundreds of blogs are being started and hundreds of blogs are being closed as well on daily basis. Do you know why bloggers shut down their blogs?

In most cases the reason is related to traffic and money. Many bloggers when don’t get results instantly shut down their blog which is wrong. Everyone should have patience because good results take time to come.

Hence, you must have patience and keep working hard with consistency in a planned way. Results will surely be seen sooner or later.

4. Give Priority to content

Content is fuel for a blog and you might have heard this saying: “Content is King” which is exactly right. Content plays the most important factor of a blog’s success. Readers get impress with the quality of writing and information shared on the blog so spend more time in producing great content.

Giving priority to content over marketing is the sign of a better blogger.

5. Don’t forget Keywords

As I said above that your main focus should be producing great content but you also need to keep keywords in mind.

Before writing content, do a proper keyword research as per the topic and while writing the article insert them naturally with good keyword density. It is always said that content should be written for readers not for the search engines. Its right but when you put better keywords there in the article then it indirectly helps users to find the exact stuffs of their interest search engines.

This is an important task too to get targeted traffic from search engines. A better blogger strive to build traffic from all the sources including search engines.

6. Build backlinks

Putting keywords in the article makes sure to show your article in search engines but link building increases the chances of showing it above in the SERPs. So link building should not be missed. You can do it by guest posting and other methods of Off page optimization.

7. Be Active on Social Media

Everything online is going social and you should also be active there to interact with your audience, reply to their queries and many more. This helps you build brand for yourself and for your blog as well.

8. Build healthy relationships online

Building healthy relationship with your fellow bloggers and audiences surely makes you a better blogger.

Just like in normal offline life when you do have good relationships with everyone in your society people consider you as a good person, similarly in blogging world when you have good relationships with your audience and fellow bloggers then you are considered as a better blogger.

9. Always ready to help

Helping others surely help you build credibility, audience, fans, followers and many more which makes you a better blogger. Help everyone as much as you can!

 10. Forget Ego

Never have ego in blogging! Even if you get success in this blogosphere, never show ego and always stay down to earth as there is need of good and sensible guys not the egoistic ones.

11. Learn to speak with Confidence

Always have confidence while speaking your word anywhere. With this confidence build yourself as an authority in your niche. It comes with experience so work hard consistently and specifically work more on the niche you are in to be an expert in that.

12. Attract Audience with new ideas

Don’t always rewrite others’ articles rather think for new and innovative ideas to write on your blog which definitely attract more audience. To do this always think, research and spend more time to finalize the topic. Remember, Finalizing topic is the most important task.

Just start following these ways and even there are many other ways too, follow them as well to make yourself a better blogger.

      Thanks fro your comment and keep coming.

  4. Hi Shiwangi,

    Congratz for getting a great Guest post from Atish.

    I’d say that it is an essential post to be read by ever blogger. Yes, Atish has written the basic points to be a better blogger and I hope am following most of the ways.

    Recently, I’ve published my 100th blog post and I really feel motivated with that. I’ve written “Reaching 100 blog posts in 1 and half years is not a big achievement, but being a part-time blogger, I consider this as a huge success” and got reply from the blogger who inspires me a lot (Jane Sheeba) “Hey Nirmala don’t say publishing 100 posts iin 1.5 years is not a great achievement. It is indeed a great achievement. How many bloggers start a blog and continue to run it to this level? I think you have done a great job.”

    After reading her comment, I realized that I’ve done something better job in blogging.

    As Atish told, persistence, passion and patience are the key to get succeed in blogging. Without proper plan, nothing can be done properly and he is very exact at that point.

    Out of all, I believe that the relationship with other bloggers and readers would help a blogger to perform enhanced blogging.

    I’d say that it is indeed post for bloggers and nicely written by Atish.

    1. Hi Nirmala,

      It is really a complimentary thing for me to have the pot from the experts like Atish. His every piece of advice should be inhaled by us firmly. So that we can perform better in blogging and peak a certain height in which Atish and you are now.

      Really building a relationship is the best way to be on top as you become favorite for all so its obvious to get the exposure.

      Ego really kills our popularity and we should always ready to help according to our limits of knowledge.

      Its very big thing that you have completed your 100 post in 1.5 years. It is really an achievements and you managed to do this being a part-time blogger and also taking care of other priorities of your life prominently.

      Thanks for coming and do always come to share your views.

  5. Hiee Shiwangi Di,

    Congratulation! For the very first guest post on Pensitdown from Atish bro.

    I completely agree with all the points but I would like to add my view on some points.

    #9. Always ready to help.
    Yes, we must be always ready to help other but we must have the ability to judge the person whether to whom we are helping is a right person to be helped or not. Because some time we get ditched by those people whom we like to help at any time.

    #10. Forget Ego
    Ego is something which can destroyed anything within a minute. Though it is difficult to stay away from ego, we must always try to stay away from ego. Ego has a power to take away everything from us.
    And everyone should note this point >>
    “Respect can’t be demanded, it has to be earned by our behaviour!” 😉

    Thanks for the tips Atish bhai and congrats again Di for the first guest post. Keep Rocking! 🙂


    1. Hi Shiv bro,

      Sorry for late approve. Very rightly said respect is for those who deserve it not for those who demand it. I just don’t understand what we will do with the ego. Ego is a germs that kills everything like personal and professional life both. We all should accept as that we are human being born to live life fullest as we live once so why the interruption of killing aspects.

      Yeah I also we should as much as we can, doing good to anyone is a pleasing and satisfactory factor for me as per my skill. The points Atish has added perfect and your elaboration over the subject is appreciable.

      Keep coming to share your ideas.

  6. Thanks for your reply Shiwnagi and am working hard to manage both offline and online works. I feel down sometimes but my involvement with interest in each work helps to perform better jobs.

    I carefully listen to every advice of Atish and following the same for the past 2 years. I’ve not yet reached the peak, but am on the way for sure. His blog posts, blogging activities & interviews really inspires me a lot to work enthusiastically. Not only me, I hope many of the newbies are greatly encouraged with his liveliness.

    1. Hi Nirmala,

      Pleasure is all mine as I love to appreciate your work and dedication. You and Atish are my favorite and love to encourage you as well. If my word can leave some spell over your confidence the I will consider myself lucky. Yeah, as competition are so high in blogging so Atish advices always work and motivational to stress out.
