This is a guest post by Whiztechy who writes about blogging tips and wordpress theme at ShoutMeLoud.com. In the following post, you will discover what are the important personal qualities that a blogger must have and should improve on to be a successful blogger.

When People ask me what’s my profession and I say them blogging then many of them give a negative reply that it’s hard to succeed in blogging career and become a professional blogger.

But I guess blogging is just not another career; if anyone want to succeed in blogging he must have few qualities. OK Here I am not going to share qualities like knowing HTML, WordPress etc. because you can learn all these things with time. I am sharing few personal qualities which help bloggers to grow success and achieve their goals.


Explorer:

One quality which all successful bloggers have is to be an explorer. Bloggers love to explore new things and try hard to learn new and productive ways to get success. Keep yourself updated with technology; new tips and tricks are very important if you want to be a professional blogger. Bloggers love to tweak new tools, software’s, blogging platforms etc. If you have the quality to learn new things then blogging is your cup of cake.

Smart/Hard Worker:

I have never seen any bloggers saying that “Today’s work is completed”, there is no end to work in blogging. The more work you do the more is pending right from writing, commenting, social networking, link building and more. In fact many of the successful bloggers find 24 hrs less to do their work. Thus you need to be a smart as well as a hard worker if you want to start blogging and get success.

Consistent:

Many newbie’s think that blogging needs time and hard work at the start and once blog gets popular it’s easy to handle it and doesn’t requires focus. But it’s a myth, it takes equal effort to stay successful. There are so many other blogs which are getting successful too and to be in competition you need to be consistent with your work. You need to have self-discipline, self-motivation to accomplish your goals.

Extrovert:

Bloggers are very expressive and confident. They are always ready to share new and useful things with readers. You should have ability to put your views and reviews in front of readers or other bloggers. Only writing article is not enough; you need to promote your blog too thus you need to be active on social networks too. Thus to become successful blogger, you need to be extrovert and confident to share your knowledge with others.

Stand Against Hurdles:

Just like other careers, blogging path is also filled with lots of hurdles such as negative comments, less traffic, lack of money, lack of time, banned from Google etc. But if you have quality to stand again even after facing ups and downs of blogging then blogging is for you. If you want to be a successful blogger then you must know how to keep yourself motivated at bad times too.


Apart from it the most important thing you must have to become a successful blogger is Passion. Thus don’t just start blog for money start for hobby or passion and you will meet your dreams for sure.

Meanwhile, do share with us which quality defines you best as a blogger?

Yes great tips, consistent is an important factor I do agree on that one fully, its so easy to step off the pedal after a while especially if you’re seeing little results which can sometimes demotivate you.

I agree that these qualities can get you the traffic your blog requires, but I would also like to add there you may have missed some other traits that a blogger should possess in order to be read and followed by his readers: (1) Creativity. Get out of the box. Use images, embed videos. Find a way to teach and be entertaining at the same time. (2) Command of the language. Economy of words, directness and conciseness. Online readers can get lazy when faced by a post they have to scroll five times to finish reading. (3) Rapport: Readers find us through search or because we have left a comment on another blogger’s entry. But only rapport and deep interest will make them come back. Reach out to other bloggers so they would connect with you.

Hard worker. This one definitely defines me. There’s no time for everything that needs to get done, and with a baby crawling around the house, there’s even less. I find most of my blogging work happens with a baby in my lap, typing one-handed. Time management becomes an exercise in working daily miracles, because one-handed typing is S-L-O-W! So everything else needs to be faster than a speeding bullet. =)

This article is exactly the dose I needed in order to start afresh after a long break! Blogging sounds easy for many people but it is not that easy at all. A day comes when we run out of ideas and can’t seem to figure out on what to write and this experience also makes a blogger a great and very keen observer since such a situation makes one think about all the topic under the sun and beyond space and on what we missed!!
Being consistent keeps me moving but I still got to work a lot on the traffic :)

i have seen many times that professional bloggers always reply to their readers i means comments like you. No one should avoid audience which the common mistake committed by newbies.

I think if you are interested in blogging, you can develop it into becoming an internet marketer. Most people today do blogging for a living and my husband is one of those people.
