Qualities of Successful Bloggers
Successful bloggers bear some qualities that define their success. Blogging is one of the most challenging careers on earth and if one is not principled, they won’t succeed. For one to be successful, these are the qualities they should possess:
- Time management
Every successful blogger knows the value of time; they therefore develop strict time management schedule. Most of them whom I know work for 8 hours after which they go for other activities. As a blogger, you must know when to start and when to stop.
The problem with some of these careers is that you are your own boss, so chances of wasting time are high.
- Attention to details
Most of our readers are anonymous, they visit our sites because we have high quality articles. The content won’t be of high quality minus the attention to details aspect. Every top blogger strives to ensure typos are as minimal as possible.
None of our readers, even myself would love to read articles with numerous typos. Since successful bloggers understand the need to have flawless articles, they develop attention to details habits.
There is high voltage competition among bloggers as everyone strives to outdo each other. In that regard, research becomes paramount. Every blogger wants their articles to stand out and as such they perform thorough research as they create more and more fresh content. Without research, a blogger may have limited content, hence not useful in the long run.
Without passion, you won’t succeed in blogging. It’s estimated that over 1 million blogs are created on daily basis but those that stand the test of time are less than 10% of these blogs. Passion is the common thing that drives people into blogging. Naturally, there are people who love to inform others, it’s their joy.
Successful bloggers enjoy what they do, they can even do it for free.
Normally, almost every blogger starts with general topics and over time they narrow down to topics that they are excited about. Successful bloggers don’t find joy in writing everything and anything—they specialize. When you specialize, you become perfect
Nearly all successful bloggers are introverts. Sometimes you meet them in a public place and wonder whether they are the same people who create the online content.
The main reason why extroverts don’t do well in blogging is because they need more time to have fun and keep friends company than they have for passive activities like blogging.
- They have several revenue streams
While newbies solely depend on AdSense, the most successful bloggers depend not only AdSense bus from other sources as well. Even if one source is closed down, the blogger’s life will go on as usual.
Established bloggers generate money from affiliate marketing, sponsored content, AdSense, direct adverts, selling of products and professional skills.
If you don’t have more than one source of revenue, then you are not a successful blogger.
- They have built authority blogs
Authority blogs are those with high quality articles that always appear at the top of page 1 of search engines. Most bloggers refer to such blogs for research.
An authority blog is like a Bible in that field, its opinion carries the heaviest weight.
