5 Pro Blogger Hacks
You’re definitely someone from blogosphere reading out this post. I’m going to share some serious life-saving pro blogging hacks because I can see you, like me, might struggle hard to achieve your goals.
The PQRST’s of Blogging
While diving into the deepest layers in the ocean of blogging, I found some treasure. I found it buried deep down and then I saw up and around, I saw all bloggers diving here and there in search of something. I just didn’t take that treasure with me and hid it in my cupboard, haha!
I’m sharing that with each one of you so to let everyone benefit from this. These are only 5 tips, if you follow them you’ll surely get somewhere, where your dreams can be quenched!
P- The number one hack! Don’t underestimate the power of social media. Promote yourself, your blog and your content as much as you can and on every possible site you can. Share with the world. Honestly, when I started blogging, this was the only hack that maintained my motivation. I know the vigorous strives of beginners. Sometimes you have ideas pouring onto your mind and obviously you can’t drain all of them on the paper at once and sometimes you sit like a loser in the corner of your room for hours and find no idea to work upon and that’s when you start losing it! Don’t lose! If you’re not getting ideas, that’s okay. Let your brain relax. Meanwhile, just promote. P means promote! Believe in the social media. Let these social sites lend you some power. I promise you’ll get readers, followers and subscribers for your blog if you keep promoting with high spirits.
Q - what’s that? Curious to know. That stands for the reason you’re reading my blog right now! Haha! Got that? QUALITY CONTENT! Yes! Put all your energy to bring the best of you on your blog. Show your best part to the world. Imagine yourself being the in spotlight, what will you do? Obviously, you’ll behave your best, you won’t mess up with anything because the camera got you! ;) Take your blog as the spotlight and be yourself, the confident self, there. Even if you are a beginner, you got brains! Use your brains the right way. Become a think tank, think differently. Observe people around you, observe their interests and try to satisfy their curiosities in your blog. Attract people, give them a reason to read you. Open up the inner you, people will love to hear about who you are and what you’re up to. Just find the right words to convey that. Focus on the quality of what you write!
R - RESEARCH! Yes, what you give always comes around :) so you do have to read others blogs who are successful in their blogging journey to learn, to understand and to avoid doing the mistakes they’ve done. Find the best blogs in your niche, read them out. Get to know how they create quality content. Observe how frequently they publish and how they attract traffic to their blogs. Remember, every boss is once a worker. So work hard in your ‘worker’ stage to enjoy soon the comfortable ‘boss’ rank. You’ll invite huge improvements to your blog by following this hack.
S - a well-known hack, SEO! Obviously, internet isn’t a fairyland where you close your eyes and your blog flies to the top ranks of Google. You have to work! If you’re vigorously working with the hack # 1, you’ll definitely make this step easier for yourself but if people aren’t making a lot of connection with your blog, you have to go with this hack. You don’t have to waste energy doing this, just get this done from some talented freelancer out there on cheap rates.
T - Guess what? TITLES! They matter for two reasons, engaging more traffic and search engine ranking! Beware of your titles. Craft them according to the internet searches. You can use free extensions like Keywords Everywhere to find what people are searching now-a-days, how much can you make if you blog on the same thing? Is the competition up or down for a specific title? These questions will be satisfied with some free extensions, one of which I have mentioned above. You can compare the difference between two of your posts. Craft a title for one post doing research and for second one, just write whatever you want to. Do compare which blog post attracts more people? I ensure your first blog post will 100% earn you some traffic and engagements.
Do let me know in the comments section if you have used any of these hacks and how they worked for you.
