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.

It’s hard for my Dad to explain what I do to his friends.

Most of my uncle’s sons and daughters are employed in “real” jobs.

For them, I am still someone who is dabbling with something new.

I don’t think I have a solution for that, and it’s OK.

They don’t need to know exactly what I do and how my business operates.

Apart from making others understand what we do for a living, we need to constantly fight to create an environment where we can thrive as a blogger.

Friends and family do not always understand the needs of a blogger to support us in our blogging journey.

So here are some tips from my experience on how to support and fuel yourself as a full time blogger.

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 to make sure that my content is loved and well received, I would often edit the articles several times.

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.

5 Tips To Write Your Awesome About Me Page

Do you know which is the most important page on your blog?

One of the most visited page?

It’s the “about me” page.

Yup…

It’s surprising, isn’t it?

Do you know why?

When someone lands on your blog, they will have questions:

Is this right blog for me?

Can this [person/blog] help me with my problem?

What is in it for me? Is it worth the time?

And they’ll look for the ‘about page.’

The about page tells the reader about you – who you are, what you do, what your blog is all about, and what it does to the reader.

It’s the foundation of your blog.

It helps you build a relationship with your reader because people want to connect with real people.

It builds trust and authority. When you explain your experience, expertise

But still, it is the one page most people don’t give attention.

It’s a huge mistake…

Because when people couldn’t find more about you or the blog, they bolt.

They aren’t interested in hearing from anonymous people they don’t know.

They don’t come back.

You don’t want to make that mistake.

That’s why I want you to write your about page first.
