    The tips that i can share for blogging is that first of all you must love blogging because if you will not love it you will just lose the purpose of it. Second accept failures and patience because in blogging there are a lot of failures you will encounter so you need to be ready for that and patience because blogging you need a lot of patience where in comes to your, your followers, subscriptions and more. Lastly you really need a lot of money and time. Money for your blogging works but it really depends on what kind of blog you want and a lot of time to sequence everything to have a beautiful piece of work. So if you have those characteristics follow these advises you must think of a unique topic of your blog. These days there are a lot of competitors in blogging so if you want to excel learn more, read more and give more. To level your work from those successful bloggers. Just be unique and show your talent coz it takes perseverance and hard work to be a very successful one.

    Blog on something you really passionate about because only then will you stand to watch your blog grow. I used to see blogging as tough till i finally decided to start a "how to make money online" blog, they're plenty of these online but i don't care. And on the articles bit am going to write only on what works for me.

    Here, I'll write a short list:

    - Write what you know!
    Don't try to become a tech blog when your passion is animals! Instead start a blog that has a weekly pet spotlight, reviews of "must have" items, and interviews with trainers, vets, shelter staff, animal control officers, and instagram stars.

    - Be consistent
    Your readers are going to want to know when you'll have content. Running with the example above, your readers are going to want to be able to read about the pet of the week every Saturday, and see what they should buy their dog next every Tuesday. A good flow of content will get you a good flow of readers

    - Get on other social media
    Instagram is a great tool for collecting readers with little snippets of your blog! Post a picture or two of your weekly pet spotlight and a little blurb, then "go to my blog to keep reading about Peanut and past pets of the week!" to direct traffic.

    - Have fun with it!
    Really, if you're not enjoying writing things for your blog, you either shouldn't be blogging (because maybe writing isn't your thing after all, and thats OK) or you're not blogging about the right things. This is something you start because you want to, not because you have to, so enjoy it!

    First, decide the reason for your blog why are you starting blogging If you are doing for money leave it you will not be able to do it because you will get frustrated from it.There is no money in initial months and if you are thinking about the money you will not be able to give the best content.I know every one start blogging for money or his experience sharing but if you are not good at writing and just thinks of money then Blogging is not a cup of tea for you.It will take minimum 5-6 months without promotion to get public attention to your website but once there is organic traffic started coming to your site just think that you are now a successful blogger.

    I just started writing at my blog few weeks earlier, I don't have many viewers yet but still I am happy and working hard to make a new and informative post to help and inspire others. Write or post what you know already or the things that you achieve or experience in your life that you believe to contribute help in our society or even in just a single viewer. It doesn't matter how many post you made, what matters most is the content of your post to show the whole world who you are, and make sure you can stand with what you are posting, do not post the things or information that mostly admire by others that you didn't even know or understand, because along the way posting the things without coming from your own knowledge will cause you disaster especially with reasoning on comments or giving guidance on followers it will bring shame on you. Don't be afraid to express your thoughts or what you have learn as long as it comes from your own knowledge and having a purpose to help or inform others in good way.

    For me, personally, I started blogging with the purpose of getting traffic and to get the trust of those who read my articles. I believe that when you gain people's trust, that is when you will get their respect and it'll be easier for you to earn money because it is more likely that they will listen to your recommendations and will take your advice into consideration.

    There is different kind of blogging, like for examples you can blog about yourself, you can show/share to your viewers your everyday lifestyle, how is you when you are in your family, friends or relatives. You can share your travel experience also inside or outside country. Blogging is very exciting to do specially if you are passionate on it.

    If you are someone with weak writing skills, then do not let this discourage you. Writing is just like any other skill where the more you do it, or practice it, the stronger that skill becomes. So, take those jobs that do not pay all that great and give it your best effort. Avoid the urge to only give them the quality that they are
    paying you for. Why? Because every job that you take is another item that you can add to your writing portfolio, which you can use to attract higher paying clients. So, treat each job, no matter how much it pays, as the opportunity to create a really great sample to show other potential clients.

    The truth about the freelance writing industry is that plenty of websites and companies are desperate for good, quality writers - and they will reward you handsomely if you are one of those writers. What most of them want is someone who can create content that is free of grammatical errors that is a clear, concise read. If you can deliver that kind of work on-time, then you can easily land repeat clients that will pay you a lot for your writing services. A good way to improve your writing is to use a word processing program, such as Microsoft Word or Pages for Mac, to check your writing for spelling and grammatical errors.

    I will give three tips for aspiring bloggers. First, blog for fun. Blog about something you like and enjoy. You don't want to do something for money. If you do it, you will be disappointed when results are not fast yielding. I personally blog about good and productive business ideas. I like to be an entrepreneur - I'm already. I like business and hence talking about it seems more of fun than business. I make money by sharing my passions and guiding others to make money in the corporate world.
    Blog for fun. you will be okay if no money is forthcoming. But sooner they will come: Only if you don't give up.

    Growing number of people how to become successful bloggers. I'm wondering why you're blogging the start of an advice of blog. As a blogger, you'll be involve in the creation and development. Most blogger work freelance and are self employed. In addition, many bloggers manage their blogging work alongside full or part time jobs. Bloggers live and work throughout the world.

    The Best Ways to Start Blogging are:-
    1) To choose a niche you like and have enough knowledge to share with.
    2) Do not talk about what you experience but better to share tips that help the reader.
    3) Keep a personal touch while writing.
    4) Speak in a simple and straightforward language.

    I believe that a blog is simply a tool to use for someone who’s got something to say. Let me be clear in saying that a blog is a poor choice for someone who needs a megaphone to scream out to cyberspace in order to elicit a meaningful response from Internet users. If you want attention and want it now and expect blogging to bring it to you, then this will surely be a disappointment. However, if you like to write and engage others on subjects of which you have some command or experience, then it’s a wonderful application with which you can interact with people who share similar interests as you. The hype is well founded.

    Anyway, here’s a list of blogging tips:
    1.) Be topical.

    Cohesiveness in message is not optional. Readers may or may not be interested in your topic, but if your message is haphazard that few will bother remembering to return to your blog because it essentially would offer nothing to remember. This doesn’t mean blogs can’t jump from subject to subject. For instance, a blog with a humorous focus has all the leeway in the world for subject matter, but it would be foolish for such a blog to turn the humor on and off. In such an example, the aspect of humor would be content’s glue, the strength of the blog. The beauty of staying on point and on topic is that eventually, due to the nature of the Internet, you will find those interested solely in your topic. (as opposed to online diaries. There are millions of them on the internet, few have any readers. Email me with examples if I’m wrong and I’ll be able to show you why you’re showing me a blog and not a diary.)

    2.) Refresh your content

    Create a schedule and stick to it. Realizing that blogging requires time and effort, don’t create unrealistic expectations and be unable to deliver. An occasional lapse or holiday is generally understood but readers returning to find stale, out-dated content are going to find another blog with similar content. New blogs and RSS feeds are popping up on a daily basis. If you have worked hard to develop an audience and a community you don’t want to lose them due to lack of communication.

    And remember, what’s old is not new and, for blogs, thus not interesting. 2006 isn’t the time to rail against Enron or Vanilla Ice. Insight doesn’t matter much to yesterday’s news.

    3.) Clear Language Counts.

    Blessed is the blog with a clear line of logic. Write without inside jokes, clique-y catchphrases or ambiguous logic. First time readers need to be close to your message. They are more likely to return to blogs that strike them positively. If the first read is confusing there will not be a second read.

    4.) Feed the Spiders.

    Search engines take notice of active blogs and blog search engines are especially sensitive to activity. If nothing else, search engines are smarter today than they were yesterday and are only getting smarter. In constantly improving they are seeking to aggregate quality; quality blogs are updated several times a week, if not daily, as opposed to once or twice a month. I don’t mean to scare you but a big spider is watching, so dance for them.

    5.) Spell check.

    Hey man, use the spell-check. I do – if I didn’t you probably wouldn’t have made it to #6. It only takes a minute and can save you from looking like a hack.

    Your weblog audiences will be small at first. And, frankly, that’s the way it should be. Who are you to think that half the internet will flock to you after three or four posts of your blog, anyway?

    If you tough it out while maintaining quality, readership will materialize. You will link to good, relevant blogs and, in turn, they will to you. While your voice may be unique, your niche likely isn’t and if your content is emitted smartly to the Internet those relevant readers will respond through readership and interaction. That I guarantee.

    This topic could go on forever. I think even the best of bloggers always look for how they can improve and constantly find ways to express themselves better and to be more interesting to their audience. Sometimes their audience might change and they will simply need to change their style, to better fit in with what their current audience appreciates. In general, it seems to be good to show off your personal sides quite a lot in your writing. That is what many of the top bloggers manage to do successfully and they get a lot of traction from standing out from the crowd.
