Blogging is serious business—at least it can be. There are people who use their blogs as online portfolios to showcase their work, people who use blogs as tools for political activism and people who use the blogs as a way to make a living.

However you use your blog, it’s important that your content is engaging, thought-provoking and above all, well-written.

The best blogs have great content, and great content should be your top priority. Finding the strengths and weaknesses in your writing can be tough. It’s hard to be objective about your own writing, and it can be even harder to find flaws in pieces that you’re passionate about.

Of late, owning a website or blog is not simple or easier compared to how it was a few years back. Previously a good and attractive design of a ‘*.com’ domain caught attention easily. Webmaster neither had a need to prove its quality nor demonstrate the reason for providing solution to everyday problems.

Blogging, today has invaded greatly into the field of networking. Bloggers are interested in building relationship with their visitors and budding customers. These days, the trend has changed such that visitors and customers are interested in knowing the person behind the blog before they read the content of it.

There she sits at her computer wondering why there’s been no sales in the last week. She checks her statistics. Sure enough! The traffic flow has increased. She’s been getting more visitors to her site, but why aren’t any of those visitors buying? She shrugs her shoulders and sighs…

“I guess it’s just impossible to earn a decent income online.”

If you’ve experienced this frustration yourself, you’re not alone. As we read many blogs, ebooks and reports on how to generate traffic, we’re often left clueless on how to convert those visitors into real sales. In the online business world it’s necessary to build trust. Our visitors cannot see us there behind our computers.

When they visit our site, they wonder, “Is this an honest site, or is there another scam artist behind the scenes?
