5 Easy Ways To Boost Your Blog


Over the past ten years or so, blogging has become a real means of making a handsome living. It started out as a small community of people that enjoyed writing and posting about wherever their passion lies – it’s now something that is utilized by more than just writers looking to create fun, significant content. It’s a way for a business to engage with an audience in the hope of attracting more leads, it’s a way for writers to launch themselves into more platform, and it’s a way for people to express themselves in whatever way they want. It’s a fantastic aspect of life and one that is only going to become more popular as the years go by. 

If you’re looking to get into blogging, or if you’ve been at it for a few weeks/months, then you’ll probably know by now that it’s not a case of simply typing things, posting them, and reaping the rewards. You need to keep at it and get a few peripheral things right, too. You also need to build up a skill in writing – you don’t need to become Shakespeare, but you need to have the fundamentals covered. Just like every other skill, or personal aspect of your being, such as your dating life, it’s something that you need to work on constantly if you want it to go well. 
Interested in the kinds of things you need to figure out? Well, here are some for you now:  

Just Start!

We’ll cover a few things in the rest of this article, but one of the best pieces of advice that can be given is that you should just begin and see where it takes you. Obviously, knowing what to do and what techniques to use is helpful, but there’s no substitute for experience. You can have all the tricks up your sleeve, but if you don’t put the work in, then those tricks become pretty obsolete. So go ahead and try things. Fail at things. Learn from mistakes. Just keep plugging away at this game. The more you do it, the better you’ll get – that’s a fact.

Look At How Others Do It

Do a little research into how bloggers who are well underway doing their thing. Many, many people out there are earning a tremendous amount of money from this job, so taking a few bits and pieces from them wouldn’t be a stupid idea. Obviously, the likes of Huffington Post and LifeHacker are the absolute pinnacles, but you can still take little nuggets from them. Smaller but just-as-handy blogs can be studied, too. For instance, if you’re looking to create a fashion blog, then the likes of Joyfully Styled could help you out a little. Fitness? Well, NerdFitness isn’t a bad role model site!

Learn About Web Design

In order to have a successful blog, the website itself needs to be of a certain standard. It doesn’t need to be the most aesthetically pleasing thing in the world, and it doesn’t need to have all kinds of ground-breaking functions. It does need to look nice on the ease in a simple sense, though. Don’t overwhelm the visitor and don’t make it look like you’re trying too hard. They show up to get more content from you and to enjoy their time – so let them do just that. 

Figure Out How SEO Works 

Search engine optimization is the practice of making your website easier to find in search results – easy, right? Everyone is using a search engine like Google in order to find what they want; so you need to make sure you’re at the front of the queue. There’s a bunch of ways to do it, but the likes of link building and produce consistent, relevant content are two ways of boosting your SEO score.

Take In As Much Info As You Can  

Learn the craft. We talked before about getting in as much experience as you can, but keeping hold of important nuggets is just as important a task for you. Watch people as they teach you on YouTube. Listen to podcasts about blogging and the business behind it all. Read articles on how best to improve your work. Blogging is a genuine skill that you’ll need to master, so take it as seriously as you would in a typical, boring office job! There may come a time where you feel completely drained and bored with the learning period, but seriously, keep at it. Successful people power through the plateau, and the losers give up!
