How To Make Your Blogging Career A Fruitful One

It started with web sites once the Internet evolved and I am pretty sure that blogs are ruling now and more number of blogs coming each and every day with many bloggers trying their luck in the field. But what makes it more interesting is, not everyone succeeds in blogging.

Some give up so easily. There are reasons why they give up so easily. These are people who don’t know how to effectively make their blogging career. When we start blogging, if we make sure if we are ready for hard times, if we work for passion and interact with readers, the blogging experience can be more easily.

Here I have shared few of my thoughts with my personal experience by which you can make your blogging career a fruitful and successful one:

Follow and then lead:

All the times, we get into a newer field we will try to make ourselves ahead of others and become superior. This is a healthy thought but you cant always expect it to happen over night. One should strive hard before achieving this in the blogosphere. Better follow other bloggers first, see how they present the posts, interact with readers etc.., to give your blogging a good start. As I started blogging, I look at other bloggers curiously, each and every time. May be this makes me to get inspired more to give more out of myselves.

Taking a decision:

Not all the bloggers, blogging for full time or having it as career. I can see many people and students doing it part time. So when starting blogging, its good to decide whether you are making it as a career, or a part time hobby or just to share your personal or political views, occasionally. Once you make clear on this, you are good to go. And this helps you to create a regular schedule, find yourselves what and why should you write and how to present them for your readers.

Think out-of-the box:

Take this as a followup of the first point. As we have followed the other bloggers, we cant always go in their foot steps. We cant make a good impression if we do so. So after you are good in blogging, make some unique articles, try different kind of posts, not regular ones and give your personal color for the articles. This is the first step in making a unique blogging for yourselves. This can make your blogging experience wonderful and it gets even more wonderful if people starts to appreciate you for them.

Be Dedicated:

This is not only for blogging but it applies to every field and every single thing we do. You must be deciated, give your best to keep up your skills and should better yourselves every time. This can be achieved by making a schedule for yourselves, taking some time to collect resources, network with other bloggers and know more about blogging every day. This can include, making a schedule and following it regularly. You can even categorise days on the way you write the posts. This makes the readers to follow it regularly.

Blogging with passion, and not for money:

Well, this is what the basic advice I got, when I started blogging. When I started my blog on October, and I contact some of the bloggers to get introduced with them and also seeking some tips. “Blog with your own interest, and let money not your only concern”, This was the most heard tip. So, when comes to blogging never make money stand before you. Have your dreams, your aims and goals be at your front and not money even your blog’s niche is make money online 🙂

Know what your readers want:

Nothing can be done single handed. But you can do it better if you join hands. Though you don’t have any co authors or partners at your blog, you can always have readers for your guidance. In fact, you are writing for your readers and you may not get new or returning readers if you don’t write what they want. Comments are the right place for it. Interact with them, or contact them even personally by email what they expected and how they felt at the blog. This is a very good practise to get into the minds of readers and have a good impression. This definitely can make your writing more inspired and in the right path.

Whats with you?

Here I have shared some basic things and some of my personal experiences. I am sure, SmartBloggerz is a place where many beginners and blogging pros meet. Definitely, everyone has their success story behind them and I am sure they have these as one of the prime factor. But, we would love to hear from you more on these at the comments.

Do blogging if you like it.. If you just doing it for the money then you would probably stop doing it after few months because it wouldn’t give instant money and you will loose your interest.

We could talk all day about the reasons why most people cant achieve success in blogging, if making money with a blog is their goal. But I think the number one reason most fail is they lack the passion or the drive it takes to continually explore new ground and write about it well. And writing about it is only have the battle!

“Follow And Then Lead” – I love this one. I’ve seen a lot of people trying to lead right away and that just doesn’t work like that. Blogging is like any other career, you have to start in the warehouse with the forklift and the move your way up to management and eventually become a CEO. Thanks for this nice post and I hope you had a fruitful 2009. Regards!
