Blogging Is More Than Just Writing Blog Posts

By Zohaib Liaqat - No Comments
To many of us, blog writing seems as easy as it could be. True, it doesn’t take much to become a blogger these days - there are plenty of tutorials, tips, and resources to anyone, who wants to try themselves at writing. Sure, you can still pay for hosting and for blog’s design - but you can also use free resources if you aren’t ready to invest.

However, while getting started is indeed very easy, succeeding is not. There are plenty of bloggers who do make money with the help of their blogs - but many of them don’t make more than $100 a month. Doesn’t look very impressive, does it?

What makes a blogger successful?

So what makes a blogger successful? Is it the amount of time they invest in the process? Is it their strategy? Or is it their passion?

Often it depends on the type of blog they write for. Sure, having a personal blog and running a corporate one are two different things - and in the second case, your chances of succeeding are higher. When you write for a company, you don’t work on your own - instead you have a whole crew of people assisting you, telling you what to write, what to do to make your posts better, etc.

Corporate blogging is a real deal. But what to do when you run your own blog?

I would advice one thing: forget about monetizing it in the first place.

This might seem absurd. However, I’m not telling you to abandon all your hopes to earn money with the help of your blog someday. What I advice you is to get these thoughts out of your head when you start.

The thing is there are plenty of bloggers who create blogs with only one purpose - to monetize them one day. This doesn’t necessarily know what exactly do they have to do in order to achieve that - yet they work for it (only for it), write non-stop, check the metrics all the time, and become more and more frustrated in the process.

They don’t have fun, don’t enjoy this process - and that’s what they should be doing in the first place.

Passion is the key

Let’s assume you’re passionate about something, be it students’ life, makeup, design, etc. You probably know a lot about the topic and probably enjoy learning even more about it. And you might want to start a blog dedicated to your subject of passion and start writing about the best topics for a proposal essay, for example. Most likely you won’t do it in a boring way - instead, you’ll share some personal stories, try to add some humor or style to your writing.

And while you might still hope to monetize your blog someday, this won’t be the only thing motivating you. This won’t affect your writing as well and won’t dim your passion about the subject.

When it comes to blogging, good content is what the readers are looking for. When you only want to make money, you might write a lot of blog posts - but you’ll also need to focus on so many other things, from promotion to metrics.

When you’re writing because of passion, your posts are your top priority. You put your time, your knowledge, and your passion into them, trying to make them as good as possible. You also look for the ways to make your blog even better, to increase your knowledge about the subject, etc. Moreover, you actually enjoy this. And such things always show in the writing.

So if you do want to become a good blogger, don’t simply write blog posts - find something you love and try to share this love with the others with the help of your writing. I wish you good luck with that!
