Give Yourself Time To Advance As A Blogger
Share

People are described as lucky when they seem to move ahead faster and go further in a shorter period of time than others. Whenever someone rises to the top of their field and achieve great things with their life, people who are not doing as well will often say their success is down to luck.

In fact it is often the result of taking charge of your life and creating your own future, rather than waiting for it to happen to you. When you take charge you begin to experience more and more events that the average person dismisses as luck.

I am one of those bloggers who blog because I have something to say. I want to share my thoughts, knowledge and passions with others. That is what I have always done through my Healthy Lifestyles Living Blog.

I have established my self as a blogger. I have along way to go to get up to the level of a Darren Rowse or John Chow, but I am on the path that I set out to be.

To me my blog is a success. I’ve produced a lot of content, and have established myself a solid basis of authority, an expert in my subject matter and have a good amount of daily traffic.

The only thing that has changed, is I no longer just blog about healthy lifestyles living or personal development. They were my two specialist subject when I entered the blogosphere. They still are, as well as being very much my passion. But now I have one new subject, that I am both knowledgeable about, and have a passion for. And that is Blogging.

This site is where I now write most of my posts about the subject of Blogging. So, today I just want to provide you with a few, simple tips, that if you use them, you and your blog will advance in the blogging world.

Tip 1: Provide great content to your readers. When it comes down to it, the key to any blog is your content. People come to your blog to read what you have to say. So it’s best if you start to write articles that represent you, your thoughts, beliefs, attitudes. Be yourself when you write. Tell people what you think. They’re either going to love you or hate you, but they’ll read you. Provide truly great content. There’s no point blogging if you don’t like doing it as it will be obvious from what you write that it’s a chore. You need to be passionate about whatever it is you’re writing about and be enthusiastic about writing so that passion will really come across in your blog posts.

Tip 2: Make Yourself Stand Out from The Crowd. There are a hell of a lot of blogs out there, and bloggers. They’re all after readership and traffic. You have to get yourself noticed. With so many competing for attention, you’ve got to rise above everyone else. You need to get out there and mingle. Contribute in your social networking group, commenting on other blogs, making your mark where ever you can.

Tip 3: Stay True to Your Passion. Don’t sell out to anyone. Be the authentic you. Even if you decide you want to make money from blogging, don’t allow this to change what you do, You have attracted your readers by the type of blog you write. By staying true to your voice you will climb up the ladder of blogging success. People will come to know you for what and who you are. Maintain this no matter what. Keep to your niche in the main, it’s your area of knowledge, it’s what you love writing about, so there should never be a reason to stop.

Tip 4: Put Your All Into It. You excel at what you are passionate about. Your performance is not merely good; it is outstanding. Through your knowledge and love of your subject you stimulate, engage, and energise your readers. Your enthusiasm is contagious. This is the way it has to be. It’s the difference between top bloggers and everyone else who blogs. Make sure you set your own performance benchmarks at the highest level, and keep them there. Your motivation should be, fuelled by your realisation that your talents, developed properly, will lead you to realize your most treasured goals and dreams.

Tip 5: Be Patient & Persistent. One thing to know is that your reader base does not happen overnight. It will take a little time to get to know people and what they are interested in, before you make become successful with your blog. Just have fun and allow you blog to develop. With some effort and a little time, your readership will develop into loyal, interested friends.

Tip 6: Learn everything you can. One of the advantages I have is that I love to learn and don’t stop when I make a mistake. I work really hard to learn from my mistakes and figure out what the better course of action would be for the next time. You are going to do things wrong, but you just have to keep going and keep learning. The only was yo develop, is to learn from your mistakes. My saying is that I never repeat the same mistake twice, I make sure I learn what it told me the first time.

You never know what you’re capable of until you actually do it – blogging is no different. Just hang in there, and put your knowledge into action – you’ll be amazed at the results.

    Again I feel your tips are excellent. For me it is all about formulating a very specific goal, studying & planning what I need to do to get there and then putting the plan into action one step at a time. I’ve been feeling a little bad that I’ve had to vastly limit my social time in a few blog networks lately, but it just doesn’t fit in with my goal right now. My blog is established to a point I am happy with, so I’ve moved on to trying to establish myself in the print world because that is when I will truly feel like a writer. 🙂

      Rachel you have nothing to feel bad about, instead feel proud that you know your priorities. This is one of the keys to success,. We can’t do everything, after all we are only human , and only get 24 hours in a day. Focus on the goal, get those words into print.

    Wise words as ever sir. And your passion is undeniable, to start a new blog when your other one is so successful! hat of to you sir

    Hi Larry – For someone who is relatively new to the blogosphere, you’re indeed remarkable. I admire your focus, your grasp of the essentials and your ability to connect. I have a lot to learn from you my friend.
    You’re doing a wonderful job, Mr Lewis!

    • admin October 9, 2011 at 9:35 pm

      Corinne, this comment is truly special …. it means so much to me. You yourself are a brilliant blogger, and for another ‘personal development’ writer to say this is just …. i use the words to much, but you know what i’m saying. Thank you so much. You can always ask me anything, you are a genuine online friend.

      My pleasure Julie. Patience is a virtue. You are developing every day, and will find solutions each step on the journey until you fulfill your targets.

    This is an awesome post Larry!! Great Tips! I have really been kicking myself here lately because I have thought to myself that I’ve done everything I know to do, but it continues to feel like I’m running in circles. Not to mention, when I follow other people’s work I tend to mess up and expect them to do the same. And when they don’t I’m crushed. I know it’s growing pains as a blogger and that I shouldn’t expect anything from others. I just need to keep on and stay focused. This post has showed me that I need to just keep doing what I’m doing and don’t worry so much about what other’s are doing and/or not doing. Thanks for sharing this man. It really helped get me back in focus. 🙂

    • admin October 9, 2011 at 9:30 pm

      Deeone you are a good blogger. Don’t let anyone tell you that you are not. And stop worrying about what others do, and stop comparring yourself. You have your own unique talents, and you will find the way that works best for you. Just stick with it, keep blogging, keep experimenting, and you will fly. Trust in what you are doing.

  7. admin October 9, 2011 at 9:24 pm

    Alohagems you are very welcome.

  8. Rachel L Wall October 9, 2011 at 10:01 pm

    Great post Larry as always!!!

  9. Daniel October 18, 2011 at 6:21 am

    Well written article, Larry.

    You packed a lot of value in there. I must admit that I feel like I am in a similar boat, to the comment poster Deeone, above. To say that in recent times I have felt like I am on a Merry-go- Round, as far as Blogging is concerned, would be an understatement.

    • admin October 18, 2011 at 9:22 am

      Daniel believe in yourself and what you are doing, persistence does pay off in blogging. Its important to continuously learn and experiment. Also build yourself a good network of bloggers, the one thing that is outstanding about the blogosphere is the willingness of other bloggers to help out, and you can count me in that whenever you need it.
