Perserverance Is Key When Blogging

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories:

Blogging has been the Internet buzz-word for the last year or so. Many have jumped on the bandwagon, only to stop updating their blog a short while later. Others have fallen into a groove, and have picked up readership - and in turn, income - through perserverance. Duncan Riley makes some valid points about what it takes to be a successful blogger:

1. Post regularly

I can’t emphasize enough that you wont build traffic unless you post regularly. Blogging should never be a chore but try setting a time each day you can spend reading and blogging as required. By all means take days off, but develop a pattern

2. Post quality

You need to provide readers with a reason to return, and quality does it all the time. Quality is of course subjective, so some research in your market or amongst your peers might give you an idea of what works, or what isn’t being catered for.

3. Don’t give in

There are going to be times where you get the blog blues, where you’d ask yourself why you even bothered, we all get them at some stage, your success will be measured on your ability to get past this and get on with the task at hand. Remember, the longer you post and the more you post, results in more traffic from search engines, which means more visitors to your blog.
