Tips for being a successful blogger

Internet has revolutionized the world. With the Internet you are connected to anywhere in the world by a single click. Not only have major changes been made in the way we socialize with each other but also the way we understand politics and how the media informs us. Billions of people earn their living via the Internet and the World Wide Web has created many new jobs: this is the case of the professional blogger, an occupation that is growing.


The difference between a good blogger and a bad blogger lies in the quality of the articles and the number of visits you get to your blog. The higher the number of visitors, the more money and success you have. In the following paragraphs we reveal the key steps that you should follow if you want to become a successful blogger.

To become a good blogger you must write interesting and engaging content. Update your blog often to keep the reader’s attention. How you do it depends on you. Try to develop an original style that identifies you as a writer and makes you unique and different from the crowd. Even so, there are always some basic principles that must be adhered to.

Make your opinion known: people like blogs is mainly because of one thing: they are written by people, not corporations. People want to know real opinions, opinions that get away from the trends set by ideology, politics or the media. Say exactly what you think, openly and without beating around the bush - but always say it with respect.

Don’t get carried away: texts and articles that are long and boring do not sell. Be clear and concise. Give as much information in the smallest space possible. Time is money and people are very busy. Exhibit your knowledge at the speed of light. Between 300 and 500 words is plenty.

Write attention grabbing headlines: a good headline is the key so that the reader is drawn to your post.

Break it down: divide the content into different parts. Every few paragraphs, add a subtitle to make it easier to read.

Use keywords: people use keywords to search the Internet via web browsers, use them, too. You must include them in the head and body of the text. You should also make sure that the keyword placement is natural and does not seem out of place.

Try to create some controversy: debates and controversy sell. If people get involved in your topics, you’ve done a good job.

If you follow these simple tips you will make your texts and articles more appealing and attractive. Making a living as a blogger is more than feasible and you can also write for extra income. Why not practice your typing skills and write for us: (english) (spanish) (italian) (german) (french)
