15 Blogging Tips Newbies Should Know For Effective Blogging.

Why some careless bloggers start blogging with the money mindset? They don't realize the mistakes they are making. Some website are out there occupying web space.

Some think Blogging is all about choosing a good domain, web hosting and setting up a blog without having the mind of sacrificing their time, money and intelligence to optimize their blog that's why they keep forgiving up. To open a blog nowadays is very easy if compared to the past but to maintain a blog is not easy, here requires all sorts of skills ( SEO, WEB DESIGNING, WRITING, MARKETING ETC).

Always create a helpful blog post - the primary purpose of blogging is to help others, not filling your blog space or making money. Million of blog are been created yearly but few of them are successful because of money mindset - blog for passion not for money.

Here are some best tips for effective blogging.

1# CHOOSE WEB HOSTING AND DOMAIN THAT WILL NOT HARM YOUR SITE SEO

At the beginning of your blogging journey, choose small hosting plan to save money and when your blog traffic increases then you will go for bigger plans. Be you very careful not choose a difficult remembering domain name and of good SEO and not to host your blog with those harmful web hosting. I prefer
Bluehost
Godaddy
Hostgator
Domainking and other popular hosting companies.

2# CHOOSE A NICHE

Choose a niche that you are expert in. Find your passion, don't just select lifestyle blog niche because your friend is doing great in it. Find your hobby and know how it works.

3# CHOOSE CLEAN BLOG DESIGN

Blog designs plays an important role to build great readership, massive traffic and user satisfaction. A clean and simple blog structure help users and search engines to understand your blog easily.

4# HAVE ATTRACTIVE INFOGRAPHICS

Infographics are term used for images in blogging. Don't use copyrighted image, otherwise always give credit to the image source, compress images before uploading it helps to decrease site loading time. Use tools like
➡PAINT
CANVA
➡PICASSA
➡PIKTOCHART
➡EASEL. LY
to create modify your images.

5# WRITE CATCHY HEADLINES

Headlines are great in blog post for clicks and engagements. No matter how great and unique your article/content may be, it won't rank higher unless you have an amazing headline. Without attracting headlines, people will not click or share your post. Websites like
Contentideator
Tweakyourbiz.com
Hubspot
Coschedule's Headline Analyzer
Contentrow.com
Advanced Marketing Institute
➡ Portent
can be of good help to you.

6# DO NOT WRITE SHORT OR LONGER POST

It should be 3 - 6 minutes read time.

7# BUILD YOUR EMAIL LIST

Even you don't plan to sell anything having an email list allows you to promote your new content via email. It is important and necessary to start building your email list from day one.

8# FREEBIES

Make stuff for free of cost for users to enhance traffic. Tutorials, free wallpapers, softwares, e-books can play a vital role. You can even increase email subscribers by giving stuff away i.e when they sign up you send them free gifts.

9# GET IDEAS FROM YOUR AUDIENCE

Create posts that answer most questions people asked on social medias. This will help you create post that people are searching for. Half of Sesgist's post were created from what people ask on social medias and forums.

10# NEVER MISLEAD

Always tell the truth and never lie. Trust is slowly earned and easily lost. Don't mislead your readers by writing fake posts like when you want write any post on news - make sure that it is true.

11# BE PATIENT

It takes time to find your voice .Don't just expect great leads and engagements within few months of blogging. Blogging requires a lot of time .

12# DON'T MEASURE STATS TOO EARLY

Your friend gets 10,000 pageviews per month and you also want to be getting same amount of visits with all cost - it is very bad and you are wasting your time to be measuring stats when you are just few months in your blogging journey.

13# GUEST POST

To rank higher and have backlinks, do not underestimate the power of guest post.

14# JOIN BLOGGERS COMMUNITY

If you are not connecting regularly with readers and other bloggers, you are really missing out.

15# MAKE YOUR CONTENT EASY TO SHARE

You should make it easy for your readers to tell their friends about you. Facebook, twitter, Reddit, LinkedIn, Pinterest and other sharing buttons should be clearly installed. For wordpress 👥 users, I recommend DIGG DIGG PLUGIN while Google bloggers should make use of ADDTHIS.

BONUS

Full time or part time
Before you will conclude on whether to set up a blog and start blogging, choose whether you are going to be blogging full time or part time - Considering this will help you a lot. I Sunday Swart as a student, I blog part-time in order to maintain my blog and my studies at the same time.
If you are a student, a employee, business man or woman and if you are not exposed to high electricity and having a steady financial support, i advice to choose part time blogging.
