What sets successful bloggers apart from the hundreds of thousands of blogs that ultimately fail? Their habits. Successful bloggers all have winning habits that help them push their blogs to success.
Here are seven of the top habits of successful bloggers.
==> #1: They Know How to Flow
Amateur bloggers are often so perfectionistic that they have trouble getting content out. They write in a way that “feels” stilted, as if they were afraid to just let it out to the world.
Great bloggers know how to flow, even when it doesn’t sound pretty.
==> #2: They Write a Ton of Content
Successful bloggers generally publish several times a week, if not every day. Unsuccessful bloggers publish once every so often.
==> #3: They Use Real Examples
Unsuccessful bloggers tend to publish very conceptual articles. Successful bloggers on the other hand tend to use real examples. They especially tend to use real-world examples from their own personal experiences.
People love reading about what’s actually working, along with real numbers or real pictures.
==> #4: They Share What They’re Learning
Surprisingly, bloggers who try to position themselves as all-knowing experts don’t tend to do as well as bloggers who admit their flaws. Some of the most successful bloggers in the world are those who are constantly learning.
These bloggers share what they’re learning with their blogs. They share their failures as well. They share their shortcomings and often ask their readers for help. They’re human.
==> #5: They Reach Out to Others
Successful bloggers aren’t afraid to reach out. They reach out to other bloggers to write guest posts. They reach out and ask for backlinks. They reach out to ask if they can interview people.
Unsuccessful bloggers often feel like they’re bothering people when they consider reaching out. Successful bloggers realize that all bloggers and website owners are really part of the same community. They’re happy to both give help and accept help.
==> #6: They Use Social Media
Successful bloggers use social media. They’re on Twitter and they have a Facebook page. Social media allows them to connect with their audience and build a community around their blog.
These bloggers don’t treat social media as a link building strategy, or as a chore. It’s just one more way they’re connecting with their readers.
==> #7: They Put Themselves on the Line
Successful bloggers care about their blog. They aren’t just implementing a bunch of internet marketing techniques. They’re actually putting themselves on the line.
They reveal who they are in their blog. They’re invested in the blog’s success. They spend their nights and days thinking about their blog.
These are seven of the success-building habits of winning bloggers. Which of these habits are you weakest in? Start working on them and your blog will become much more successful.
