The Hidden Secret to Blogging Success
Blogging is the game of luck, it’s the game of numbers and it’s about finding the right timing, writing what you love and sharing on social media, applying Google Adsense to make money, Right?
But honestly those are deep seated lies, in fact, a dumb bloggers guide to failure.
If you want to be a medical doctor or a lawyer, you don’t just wish and become a doctor. No. and it’s not even about the number of years or background. You could spend twelve years without still being a doctor.
Blogging is not different.
If you want to be one of the most famous bloggers on earth, then luck and wishes don’t count for much. And it’s not about placing ads networks around your blog.
You must follow working principles and school yourself in the craft.
You see, the problem with most bloggers is that they are doing so many things the wrong way.
Chances are, in your finger tips are all the tips and tricks. But you aren’t implementing them the right way.
So how do you want to succeed? How do you want to gain traffic? How do you want to cross the sea of noise?
The painful part?
No one is ever willing to tell you the truth. No one is ready to point you in the right direction.
If you want to succeed, then you must stop the dumb things everyone else is doing. Stop the bullshit. Be clear about this path because you know clarity brings purpose, right?
The bigger problem?
You don’t have an idea what you are doing wrong.
Probably a lot.
And this is where our lesson begins:
The Three Stupid Reasons Why You’ll never Succeed as a blogger
1. Blogging For Profit Instead of Passion
It’s actually crazy.
You see other bloggers income report; you’re wowed by the stats and figures. You are overwhelmed, jumped on the blogging wagon, installed WordPress and publish a couple of articles.
The truth is, you end up frustrated and wimpy with no one ready to help you.
Blogging is all about providing value, changing lives and impacting people.
Profit naturally flows to where value is created.
2. Believing You Can Do It Alone.
Pro blogging is about connectivity, interlinking and sharing the love.
It’s terrible how newbie bloggers try to do everything all by themselves.
You see, in every niche and market, there are those who have gone ahead of you. They can help and point you in the right direction and its pointless trying to be self sufficient.
Avoid the path of loneliness.
3. Writing the Wrong Type of Articles
The conventional advice is to write more content and publish on a daily. They also say, content is king, the life wire and heartbeat of your profession, right?
The truth is? All those advises are wrong.
Not all contents are created equal, some are stronger than others. Some are aimed at bonding with readers; others are used for generating more traffic while some are geared towards creating excitement, joy and happiness.
So, the question is, what type of article should newbie bloggers focus on?
Troubling isn’t it?
Two things that matters with blogging:
2. Find opportunity to connect with experts and bond with readers.
You should write inspirational and valuable articles. For instance, you don’t go publishing sleazy and half baked contents.
That’s a fool’s path to endless struggles.
Write articles aimed at changing the lives of your readers… list post, expert’s roundup, ego bait and guestographics.
This is the way to win.
4. Terrible Article Structure:
Just like the point above, bloggers suck in writing.
And honestly, I can’t even stand the vomit and grammatical blunts on some blogs.
They keep churning out such useless and empty articles, and I hate to see them because they make my tummy quake. (Am sorry for that)
Articles that have no chance to run on the search engines.
Its mess! Mess!! Everywhere you turn in the blog-o-sphere is messed up.
No wonder they never succeed after all. They are stalked deep in the ocean of emptiness, and it’s a big shame!
And yes, to succeed, your articles should have three basic structures (the opening, body and close) right?
Yes, but that’s not all.
You need to make them extremely valuable, interesting and interactive.
Include expert quotes, transitions, interlinks, stunning images and of course bullets points.
Employ the power of empathy to personalize and create more bonding with readers.
Hard truth, huh?
5. Stop Sacrificing Value For Quantity
And the easiest way to achieve that?
Avoid publishing daily. Why? Because it’s a stock dump Blogging idea. Painful truth.
And no one is saying it…
Being a popular blogger is not just about Writing and writing and writing, it’s a good thing. But chances are, you might never succeed after all.
I’d love to say it’s easy to build a popular blog from scratch. I’d love to Say it’s straight and that you can do a little here and there and wow in fame!
But I’m sorry, I won’t. Not even for a million $$$.
If you want to be an unforgettable blogger, with huge traffic and following, then you must stop focusing on things like blog design, SEO, backlinks, social media, infographics, creating YouTube videos, commenting on forums and so on.
Yes, I admit they’re all important, but not at the beginning of your blogging Career.
To be honest:
They won’t help you much.
The Path to Blogging Fame
It all boils down to only three major steps.
What? Did I say only 3 major steps?
Yes buddy, and here they are:
2. Build long-lasting relationship with those that matter
3. Promote the hell out of every content you write
Be brutality and totality shameless about asking influencers for help. Yes, go ahead. Ask them to promote you and they will.
You know why?
You are a person of value. You are damn interesting… and to put it more direct, you are a skilled word-smith.
The point of this post:
You too can succeed, you can overcome the noise and win the game of fame and popularity.
And it doesn’t matter if the web is full of crappy contents, and it doesn’t matter if you are just starting out. If you follow the 3 principles above…
you too will survive. You will make it to the very top. Yes! You’ll succeed, not because I said so, not even because you’ve chosen the path of a skilled blogger.
But because you now understand the basic principles for successful blogging.
That’s the joy of this whole piece
It’s time to wake up and do the right things in the right order. It’s time to prove to everyone that you are no fool. To let them know that writing is your calling and that you can never fail.
It might take some time, granted.
But you’ll surely get there.
A point where traffic, comments, shares, followers and subscribers would never be a problem anymore.
Plus, you will earn passive income, travel round the world, feeling like God’s true child.
