It is no easy to start a new blog. Being a new blogger, you need to know a lot of things before you can start blogging like a pro. It isn’t a simple thing to start a new blog and start making money from it. Whether you have started your blog or you are just planning to start one, these tips for new bloggers are sure to help you.
Tips for New Bloggers: Choosing the Niche
Blogging starts with the niche selection. You don’t have to choose just any niche neither you have to choose a niche that is less competitive rather you have to choose a niche based on your interest and passion. Follow your passion. If you love tablets, start a blog about tablets. This way you will love writing about tablets. You will not have to find topics for your blog. You will not get bored. You will not feel as if you are doing a job.
Testing With a Free Blog
Start a free blog preferably at blogger.com or at wordpress.com before you buy your own domain. You can smoothly transfer all your blog posts from your free blog to your self-hosted blog so that is not an issue. Test the waters with a free blog first.
I personally hate generic content/posts and I always recommend the same to stay miles away from writing generic posts. Reproducing a post in your own words will not going to give you anything in the long-run (and not even in the short-run). Write quality posts. Write highly informative posts. Writing really high quality posts will be easy for you if you will write about something that you love.
Write and post regularly and consistently. For new blogs, it is suggested to write 5 posts a week. Later on, you can switch to 3 to 4 posts a week.
Desired Length of the Posts
It is recommended to avoid writing too long or too short posts. A good post is no less than 300 words and no more than 700 words. The idea is to be concise and deliver the complete message before the reader starts losing the interest. In case of lengthy posts, readers lose interest. It gets boring.
Use Headings, Bullets and Pictures In Your Posts
Readers are busy and they don’t have the time to read each and everything written on your blog. 8 out of 10 blog visitors just skim through the text. Therefore it is essential to use headings, bullets, pictures, infographics and videos to make things easy for the readers. Headings and bullets are very useful for readers. They can get the point effortlessly.
