It’s never too late to start blogging. Some of you think, “Ah, it just might be too late to start a blog, when others have been doing this for months and years”. But, all of you need to know that hundreds and thousands of netizens are entering blogosphere as beginners each and every day. So you have all the time in the world to start a new blog and share a piece of your mind with others.
Blogging is always a very personal affair. You can blog about anything. You can talk about your everyday encounters, telling others how you look at life. On the other hand, if you are working as a digital marketer, blogging serves as a useful platform to promote your business. However, what does it take to become a successful blogger? You must write well (this is mandatory), and use simple language, so that everyone easily understands whatever you tried to convey. But, this isn’t all. We believe shrewd planning and improvising your plan effectively forms an important aspect of successful blogging. There are 4 easy ways to become a popular blogger. Read on and you will familiarize yourself with these 4 ways.
Firstly, submit your blog in popular directories. Sites such as Technorati, Blogrunner, and Blogflux allow you to submit your blog in their respective directories. These directories rank your blog depending on the response it receives from social media, the kind of information you provide, how frequently its updated, and so forth. So, the more effort you put in optimizing and updating your blog, the higher it goes up in the directory rankings.
Secondly, accept posts from guests. However, you must be careful. Don’t post every article you get from others. Make sure you are posting a well-written article which is also relevant to your niche. This way, you can be further creative yet drive more traffic to your blog. Besides, this also shows your respect towards others’ views.
Thirdly, harness the power of social bookmarking sites. If you are apprehensive about using social bookmarking sites such as Digg, Stumbleupon, and Delicious, it’s time you shed those apprehensions. These sites can help your posts go viral within hours, driving huge traffic to your blog.
Fourthly, use an email signature when posting. Here you might think, “Ah, but this is useless, an outdated method”. But you are mistaken. When you use email signature, your readership understands there’s a real person behind all these posts, someone who will respond to their comments. They keep coming back, and recommend your site to others.
