Unfortunately, there is a large percentage of bloggers who lack patience. They are the type of people who will not stick with blogging if they are unable to see favourable results in a short space of time.
Hey, that sort of mentality is a crazy one!
Because everything on the face of the Earth takes its time to blossom (And, your blog is no different).
Also, if you give up without ever giving blogging your best shot, you are not going to be triumphant (And, since you have made it this far, I am going to share with you six simple things that you can do to make that blog of yours triumphant).
1.) By Resisting The Urge To Look At Your Stats Numerous Times A Day
If you have just started blogging, the number of your incoming views is going to be low (The only way your incoming views are going to be high the first time around is if you are already a celebrity).
Some of the newcomers to blogging wrongfully think the reason their blog is receiving a minuscule amount of views is that the content on their blog is not good enough.
Realistically speaking, it takes a while for bloggers to build their readership. Therefore, it would be extremely naive for any blogger to want overnight success in the blogosphere.
According to Kyle Byers’s article, How Many Blogs Are There? (And 141 Other Blogging Stats), 77.8 million new blog posts are published each month on WordPress (Now, that is a huge number of blogs competing for the attention of readers).
Dear friend, if you continue doing the following things your stats and readership will gradually increase:
- Making sure that your blog posts are devoid of grammatical and typographical errors before pressing the publish button.
- By publishing the type of content that you are genuinely interested in on your blog.
- By interacting regularly with like-minded bloggers.
- Making it a priority of yours to see that your blog loads quickly (People hate blogs that load slowly).
- By seeing to it that your blog is easy to manoeuvre (Viewers should be able to find your blog posts easily as well as your blog’s pages).
So, in the meantime, ignore those stats of yours and have lots of fun with the blogging process.
Do not make the mistake of abandoning your blog because your blog received a small number of incoming views.
2.) By Ignoring The Haters
From a realistic point of view, everyone is not going to like your blog; there would be those who hate it.
The most that you can do is to continue publishing the types of blog posts that resonates well with you (By doing so, you will also attract readers that are of a similar mindset).
Dear friend, if someone hates your blog, that is their problem and not yours.
Besides, it would be a ridiculous move on your behalf to discontinue blogging because someone hates your blog or a portion of your blog posts.
So, ignore the haters!
3.) By Engaging With Your Audience
One of the simplest ways of engaging with your audience is via the comments section of your blog.
Do you ever respond to the comments that were made in the comments section of your blog?
I truly hope that “Yes,” was your answer.
Because most people hate it when you do not make time and the effort to respond to their comment.
If a viewer shares their perspective via the comments section of your blog, you should read it thoroughly and respond to it.
Believe it or not, people have made online friendships with other bloggers simply by leaving valuable comments.
Interacting with your audience via the comments section of your blog also helps you to know them better.
Blogging is not a proverbial one-way street; hence the importance of responding to comments.
If comments are not your thing, disable them (That way, you would not have any sort of reason to respond to the comments that were made on your blog).
After all, the way that you respond to comments (or not respond to them) can make or break your blog).
To acquire a better understanding of this, check out my article, Comments Versus No Comments.
4.) By Believing In Yourself
Dear friend, believing in yourself and in your ability to blog, places you in a much better position to be triumphant in the blogosphere.
And, why is that so?
Because a lack of belief will result in the growth of doubt (People who lack the belief in their ability to blog will not put out the effort that is required of them to have a successful blog).
The stronger your belief, the better.
Do you believe in yourself and in your blogging abilities?
5.) By Working On Building Your Credibility As A Blogger
Why is it that you should work on building your credibility as a blogger?
You should work on building your credibility as a blogger because bloggers that have a high level of credibility are taken seriously by their peers and their readers (That would certainly be a great step towards becoming triumphant in the blogosphere and remaining triumphant in it).
People can gain credibility as a blogger by:
- Having a reputation for always publishing high-quality content on their blog.
- Practicing what they preach.
- Being deeply involved with their online community.
- Always maintaining a high level of professionalism (This works for both business-related blogs and personal blogs).
- Having expertise in a particular field or niche.
- Being honest and straightforward with their viewing audience.
Dear friend, you should seriously take into consideration the things that I mentioned above if you have a sincere desire to be triumphant in the blogosphere.
Are you currently doing any of the things that I highlighted?
6.) By Taking Superb Care Of Yourself
Taking superb care of yourself will also place you in a much better position to become and remain triumphant in the blogosphere.
And, why is it that taking superb care of yourself will bring you closer to those things?
Because you are the creative force behind your blog (Your blog will remain dormant if you kicked the proverbial bucket).
So, it would be wise of you to take superb care of yourself.
All bloggers can take superb care of themselves by doing the following things:
- Getting an adequate amount of rest.
- Getting the proper nutrition.
- Getting a reasonable amount of physical exercise.
- Participating in prayer and meditation.
- Getting regular checkups from their doctor.
Have you been taking superb care of yourself lately?
7.) By Being Consistent With Your Blog Posts
To be most straightforward with you, posting content sporadically on your blog is not going to help you in the area of being triumphant in the blogosphere.
Because posting sporadically on your blog indirectly shows others that you are not at all serious about blogging.
And, it should not come as a huge surprise to you, that serious-minded bloggers are the ones who are consistent when it comes to publishing content on their blog.
You would be most pleased to know, that bloggers can become consistent with their blogging by:
- Planning out their content in advance.
- Utilizing a realistic blogging schedule.
- Creating the draft-copies of their blog posts at specific times.
- Developing the habit of writing.
By the way, Neil Patel’s Guide to Blogging Consistently is a fantastic article; it will help you in the area of publishing content on your blog in a highly consistent manner.
8.) By Never Becoming Egotistical
Some bloggers who have had the taste of success and became egotistical crashed and burned.
Because no one is truly fond of an egotistical blogger.
From a realistic perspective, it is all about being of service to the reader.
People really do not care if you are a big blogging superstar — someone who is well-known throughout the internet via their guest posts and having their eBooks about blogging advertised for sale on their blog or on Amazon.
What do readers really care about?
Readers want the following things:
- To find solutions to their problems.
- To be entertained.
- To learn something new.
- To come across reading material that will motivate them to become better at a task.
- To learn how to go about accomplishing their goals.
By the way, I would like to take this opportunity to mention to you, that not everyone who does guest posts, sell eBooks on their blog and have their eBooks about blogging advertised for sale on Amazon are egotistical; there are also exemplary bloggers who are also involved in all of those things — the type of people who put their readers first.
9.) By Knowing Which Type Of Blogging Advice To Follow
If you have ever perused blogging advice on the world wide web, there is a high probability of you coming across fantastic ones and those that are absolutely horrendous.
It is no secret that the good kind of blogging advice will contribute to elevating your blog, whereas the bad kind will cause your blog to take a nosedive if you implement it.
In your case, you will have to use your intuition to help you find out which type of blogging advice is most suitable for you (You will want to consider doing this if you truly desire to be triumphant in the blogosphere).
My article, Putting Blogging Advice Underneath A Microscope, helps the reader to utilize a bit of common sense whenever they are examining blogging advice from others.
10.) By Making Your Blog Stand Out From The Crowd
The blogosphere is filled with countless blogs and there is a high chance of them posting topics that are similar to yours or have a niche that is similar to yours; which is why you will need your blog to stand out from the crowd.
Some of you who are reading this are probably wondering, “How do I get my blog to stand out from the crowd?”
Well, you can make your blog stand out from the crowd by doing the following things:
- Allowing your personality to shine through your writing.
- Making a conscientious effort to publish epic content on your blog.
- Creating a unique-looking logo for your blog.
- Offering information that can only be found on your blog.
- Going against the norm.
- Being an expert in your field or niche.
- Making every blog post of yours useful to your viewing audiences from across the world.
Dear friend, you will have a much better chance of becoming and remaining triumphant in the blogosphere by simply making your blog stand out from the crowd.
11.) By Constantly Learning
Dear friend, when it comes to blogging, the learning never stops.
To have the most up-to-date information on things like SEO and blogging, you will need to be learning about them constantly (Now, do not be surprised about that because those two things are always evolving).
You will also need to keep the following things up-to-date:
Any blogger who believes that the learning stops when they have reached the top is an ignorant one.
So, are you prepared to be constantly learning new things and updating the information that you possess?
As you have learned, any blogger has a chance of becoming and remaining triumphant in the blogosphere by adopting the following methods:
- Resisting the urge to look at their stats multiple times per day.
- Simply ignoring their haters.
- Engaging with their beloved audience.
- Believing in themselves.
- Working arduously on building their credibility as a blogger.
- Taking superb care of their own self.
- Being consistent with their blog posts.
- Never becoming egotistical.
- Knowing the right type of blogging advice to follow.
- Doing the things that will make that blog of theirs stand out from the crowd.
- Having the mindset to be constantly learning new things and updating the information that was deemed outdated.
