Successful Blogging 101


Once you begin blogging, you will see how fun and entertaining it can be and you also will learn how potentially profitable blogging can be.






The growing popularity of blogging means that there are an ever increasing number of bloggers competing for the same pool or readers, but if you make the effort to create high-quality content that your readers can use in their everyday lives, you can quickly build your blog’s popularity and your potential commercial base.


It can take some time to build up a pool of loyal, regular subscribers and occasional readers, but if you consistently provide high-quality content, maintain a predictable publishing schedule, and are pro-active about marketing your blog, you can expect to rapidly increase your readership.


One of the greatest pleasures of blogging is interacting with people from all over the world who share your enthusiasm for your subject matter.


Reading and commenting on other people’s blogs can keep you engaged in the online community and also help provide you with a steady stream of new material that you can use for inspiration.


When people leave comments on your blog posts, try to always respond so that you can help build interpersonal relationships with your readers. Not only can this lead to rewarding friendships, but it also increases the chances that they will be open to any commercial purposes you may have with your blog.


A lot of casual bloggers end up running their blogs like a business because it’s fun, easy, and you get to work with topics that you already enjoy.


Once you realize how easy it is to make money from producing your blog, you probably are going to want to maximize the amount of revenue you can earn for your efforts.


Even if you devote only a few hours per week to your blog and work on it in your spare time, it’s possible to earn hundreds or even thousands of dollars per month from your blog.


The more regular readers you have, the most respected you are in your niche community, and the more well-known your blog becomes, the more potential revenue there is.


As a blog business owner, your job is to keep your content fresh, interesting, and high-value so that people will keep looking forward to your postings and your popularity will improve.


The best way to build your following is to continually provide high-value content that people can use. This will keep people coming back again and again and will also cause them to recommend your blog to other people.


The look of your blog will impact how many new visitors subscribe to your blog.  You probably don’t want to change your theme too often otherwise you run the risk of disorienting your regular readers.


While it’s important to have a regular supply of loyal readers, it’s also important to continually be attracting new visitors to your blogs.

  1. Facebook’s gone mad today. First, it said my post might be unsafe. Now, when I tried to share yours on fb, it said the same thing.
    Anyway, great information, Joan. I’m sure it will help many people with their blog.

  2. This is a great summary statement: “consistently provide high-quality content, maintain a predictable publishing schedule, and are pro-active about marketing your blog.” I agree. I also agree with always responding to comments. One of my favorite things is interacting with the people who visit my blog.

  3. Hi Joan,

    As a blogger for a few years now, I love blogging! Yes, we have to create content that solves a problem for others. We must respond to each and every comment, go to their blog and reciprocate. We start building a great community of bloggers that way.

    I am a people person and love to connect and engage with others. Some became real friends along the way.

    But when it comes to monetizing our blogs…that is a must. We must have a clear concise marketing plan in mind in order to monetize it.

    Great stuff!
