10 Steps to Becoming a Better Blogger

Follow these 10 steps to becoming a better blogger..

Just imagine if you developed one of the most popular blogs in
your niche. Think of how much money you could make selling your
products or affiliate products.

Imagine how big your list would be. And when you were ready to
exit the business, just imagine how much money you’d make
selling your corner of the web.

All of this is within your reach – especially if you follow
these 10 steps to becoming a better blogger…

1. Survey your readers to find out what they want.

Adding a poll or short survey to your blog not only makes your
blog interactive (which is a good thing), it also gives you an
idea of what kind of content and solutions your readers want!

2. Give your readers info that they’d gladly pay for.

Just because your blog is free doesn’t mean you should post
content that’s not worth anything. On the contrary, you should
post valuable content – the kind of solutions you’re market is
already paying for – on your blog. That way you can build trust
and establish yourself as an expert in your niche.

3. Write about hot or controversial topics to spur discussion.

When there’s a controversy going on in your niche, grab a side
and blog about it. Push a few emotional buttons. Then create a
call to action at the end of your post where you specifically
ask your readers for their comments and feedback. The more
emotionally charged the post, the more likely it is that you’ll
get comments.

4. Join the blogosphere discussions.

Your blog is not an island. Start visiting other blogs in your
niche and join the community discussions. You can comment
directly on their blogs. Or better yet, write a response on your
blog using a trackback link.

5. Optimize your posts for the search engines.

You don’t have to optimize every post you make. But if you make
a point to optimize at least one post per week, you’ll see a
steady increase in traffic.

Tip: Use a tool like WordTracker.com to uncover your niche
keywords. Choose words that have low competition. Then include
your keywords two or three times for every 100 words of content.

6. Arouse curiosity with password-protected posts.

Your visitors can see that your blog has a lot of good content.
But then they notice that you lock up your best content behind
password protected posts (with the passwords only being
available to your subscribers). You can bet curiosity will get
the best of many of your readers… and they’ll subscribe.

7. Learn to create killer headlines.

People will decide whether to read your post based on your
headline. As such, use headlines that include words like how to,
you, amazing, secrets and discover.

8. Vary your posting style (some long, some short, etc).

Don’t always post a 400 word “how to” article. Instead, mix
things up by posting articles of different lengths and different

9. Interact with your readers by answering their comments.

Your comment section isn’t just a place for your readers to talk
amongst themselves – it’s also a great place for you to interact
with your readers. Since people buy from those they know, like
and trust, this simple act of interacting will grow your income.

10. Make blogging a part of your daily routine.

Add “write a blog post” to each and every daily to-do list until
it becomes a habit. If you write just one short blog post per
day, in a year you’ll have 365 blog posts – and a whole lot more
readers, subscribers and income!

Creating a big, popular blog isn’t a matter of doing one thing.
Instead, you can create a better blog (and become a better
blogger) by consistently taking a series of smaller steps.
