Blogging seems to be as popular as ever. You can find a blog on nearly any subject, but finding a good blog can be a bit harder.
I want this blog to be interesting and helpful. I also want it to come across as a well ironed product.
To achieve that, I sometimes take a look at the bigger bloggers out there, to learn from them. Here’s what I’m seeing…
#1 Be Positive
Some bloggers are willing to try their hand at anything to improve the reach of their blog. Be that YouTube, Instagram or starting Facebook groups.
If they fail they simply regroup. They find a way to dust themselves off, and respond in a positive manor -then move on.
Trying Again is easily written, but harder to do.
I’ve learned that one shouldn’t be overly discouraged by failure -just try to be positive in the face of it.
#2 Grab Opportunities
Sometimes in life an opportunity comes your way. Grabbing it is a simple action which some people do better than others.
You have to be willing to take those opportunities.
Imagine if you had the opportunity to create a Fitness channel on YouTube, before it was a household name.
Those that got in early had the best opportunity to establish themselves. And that’s all because they saw an opportunity and took it.
I see that behaviour in a lot of successful bloggers.
#3 Be Persistent
As is often said, persistence is the key.
That means not giving in.
When you’re trying your best, and things still don’t pan out, throwing the toys out of the pram may feel like the sensible response.
And it is.
But don’t pull the plug yet. Don’t miss a post yet. Don’t give up on your blog yet.
Most good things don’t come easy.
It’s a story often told by successful people. How they kept going, even after years of failure. All-the-while, working on getting better.
Until one day they realised the success they had been pursuing.
