5 Quick Steps To A Successful Blog

Silly WalksNo mumbo-jumbo just pure honesty. Let’s get down to business.

Step 1

Be prepared. Building a successful blog takes dedication and enthusiasm. If you aren’t willing to stay dedicated or excited about what you are creating then stop reading this right now and go back to Facebook.

Step 2

Glad you stuck around, now let’s get back to business.

Narrow your niche and become an expert. What are you passionate about? If you are attempting to write about topic that you have little interest in or feel this may be a phase then you will quickly loose interest and your readers will see right through it.

Step 3

Know your audience based on the target niche that you are passionate about. Basically, who is reading your blog? What questions are they looking for answers to? Are you answering those questions?  If not, you better figure them out.

Step 4

Learn how to use your WordPress blog. There are over 25 million WordPress blogs swirling around the blogosphere and the support is absolutely….Absolutely…incredible. Have a question about WordPress? My good friend Google has the answer. Performing a better search returns better results. Looking for a way to upload images to a post? Search ‘WordPress how to upload images to a post’ and the first result is ‘Using Image and File Attachments WordPress Codex’ which has detailed instructions on how to upload an image to a post. If you don’t have time to learn to use WordPress, then hire someone who does. Click here if you need help with your blog.

Step 5

Continue to learn. Your niche is probably constantly changing and evolving. Now it is your job to stay on top of that and make sure you are delivering valuable, quality, up-to-date information to your readers. The plus side is that this always gives you something to talk about and teach.

Final Thought

Never be scared to start blogging or even reach for the stars. The harder you work at it, the quicker you will become comfortable with it. Before long, you will not only be passionate about your niche but you will become passionate about sharing it with your community. Now Go Get Your Blog On.

Thanks Clifton, I especially like step No. 5 because I am a work in progress and things are constantly changing. I'm re-vamping my blog and it's pages as I write this. I want to also take this opportunity to shout out a great big Thank You to you. You are always there for us and manage to take time out of your busy schedule to fix things we cannot do. Thanks again, Donna

I was thinking about talking about other things on my site. At the moment all I talk about is my work (animation and films). I was thinking on occasion to discus other peoples work and my thoughts on that. Would this be make things muddy? .-= Kap13´s last blog ..Bystander Characters =-.

Thanks for the great info Clifton, alot people start blog without identifying who they are talking to and what they are really passionate about. You need to talk about what you are passionate about or you won't want to blog at all. Could you imagine waking up every morning to something you hate (lol) well maybe we can but besides a job would you really want two things you cant stand doing.
