3 Tips for Professional Bloggers to Write More, Write Better

Being a full-time professional blogger is no easy task.

Most of the people around us do not understand what we do.

Is it OK to Start an Anonymous Blog Under a Pen Name?

If you want to become a successful blogger…

There is probably one big hesitation you have…

And that is…

Will people like my posts?

Will I add enough value for people?

Or will they hate me?

Will they ignore me?

These are some issues that every blogger faces when he starts his blogging journey.

I faced these issues a lot.

And sometimes I would edit it so many times and still wouldn’t be satisfied.

And I would end up just saving the article and many articles like that have never seen the light of the day.

It has taken a long time for me to get comfortable with writing and publishing articles fast.

I have finally come to a stage where I can write an article and hit publish without editing it again.

This article has been published like that. No edits. No revisions.

This kind of confidence comes with years of writing practice.

And not just writing, but actually publishing it and distributing it to an audience.

Your first work might not get much traction.

You might get 100 readers if you are lucky.

You can spread your article on social media and within your personal network.

Out of 100 readers, may be 2 will leave comments on the article.
