Five tips that I would have liked to receive when starting my blog


I am not very fond of the typical post of the 10 tips for, the 10 errors that, because most of them only seek to get dissemination (I would like to see the data in terms of conversions, visit times, bounce, etc. etc.) and the advice does not add much value. But hey, sure that more than one is useful, so I will not continue doing 'blood'.

But if it is true that some of them find interesting things in the form of advice, useful web, application, etc. That's why I'm going to try to make a short and most useful list of tips for beginner bloggers or people who are thinking of creating it. Here I have written all about you need to create a successful blog. After reading if you think that you need to learn more just follow blogninja created by shoemoney.

Five tips that I would have liked to receive when starting my blog

1. Beat the fear of writing

The first thing is to break that mental barrier that we all have before we start.

You must start by having a clear idea (it does not have to be 100% defined), of the topic on which you want to write. Once you have that, stop spinning and start now. Not next week or when it happens x thing. Enter WordPress, register your own blog and write the first post. It's free and takes 10 minutes.

You will have time to choose the design that you like the most, the photo and I do not know how many more things. All accessory. The important thing is that you start writing.

It is normal that during the first weeks the course of the blog changes, that you write low quality posts, etc. The good news? As you just started, nobody knows you and therefore nobody reads you. Therefore, the impact is minimal. It is time to learn.

2. Quality before quantity

If you do not have anything that seems interesting to you, it is better that you do not write. So:

"It's not about writing a lot, but about writing things that add value"

There are many bloggers who write every day. In my opinion (by pure logic, not by own experience), it is impossible to maintain the level of quality day after day.

Writing every day has the benefit of staying in the top of mind of your readers, but the problem is if you do it with the positioning you want (type of content and quality, and therefore type of audience), and if this It will help you achieve your goals.

Especially at the beginning of recommend to lay the foundations of your blog with posts that address issues in depth. Write 4-5 post of what we call 'depth charges', combined with shorter posts.

As time progresses, you will discover your style.

3. Work hard and commit yourself

Keep a blog while you work, you have a family, you study, you relate, it's complicated. You have to take time out of where you do not have it, and this will make you doubt if it's worth the effort.

"Every minute that you dedicate to your blog, it will be beneficial for you and your professional career"

Be patient. Once you have overcome the fear of writing and have entered the dynamics, it is a matter of hard work. To look towards your goal and build the path that will take you to it. You will see that before you know it you will start to experience very positive things.

4. Do not pretend to be what you are not

4. Do not pretend to be what you are not Your blog is a reflection of your knowledge and experiences (personal and professional).

Some posts you will write with total certainty that they are correct, others will be an idea that is taking shape, but what they should never be is something that does not reflect your reality.

Although the post is based on the content of a third party, always try to provide your opinion, to give your personal touch.

Remember two things:

• "A liar is caught before a lame" and

• Everything you post on the Internet is part of your reputation.

That is to say:

• If you pretend to be what you are not, they will catch you for sure.

• Everything you post, positive or negative, will be part of the image that others have of you, so try to balance the balance, and much, towards the positive.

5. Try to be humble

Measure your successes for the positive things that happen to you and try not to pay too much attention to your ego.

Social networks and blogs, are full of bright lights in the form of fans, traffic, number shares of your posts, number of subscribers, number of.

It is normal that at certain times you pay attention to them and that you love them. It happens to everyone.

The important thing is that this is not your way of assessing the success of your blog. This will depend on whether it meets the objectives set: leads, proposals for collaboration, or simply enjoy writing.
