Many new bloggers find it hard to survive and get great results from their blogs. They always prefer to quit blogging instead of motivating themselves to continue in blogging.
You can’t expect great results in less time. Here’s a motivating article for you to succeed in blogging.
The 5 habits of highly successful bloggers
1. Goal Vs. Vision – they’re vision-oriented
Successful bloggers have vision, not goals! What’s the major difference between goal and vision? The persons with goals, generally stop the journey after reaching some extent, those people who have a vision will NEVER stop, they never quit their journey no matter how tuff the situation is.
For example, if you’re a goal oriented blogger, you’ll definitely stop your journey when you’ve reached them, but when you’ve vision to reach the great extent, you’ll notice a difference, you can create a great impact on blogging world.
Then why most bloggers don’t make a vision?
The problem is this, vision takes TIME to succeed. It generally lasts up to 3 to 5 years, that’s certainly a great period for those who does online business, agree? It’s why most people quit blogging even before they start. When you analyze the successful bloggers journey, you’ll clearly notice that they’re vision-oriented people, who have worked consistently over the YEARS. Consistent efforts took them to the next level, so work hard towards setting the vision for your blogs, not goals.
2. They are CONSISTENT with what they do
How many of you know Darren Rowse from Problogger.net has posted daily almost for 5 years (consistently, without missing even a SINGLE day!). That’s how he became blogging legend, that’s the reason why now problogger is one of the greatest blogging resources for all the bloggers worldwide.
Be consistent with whatever you do, success will come to you sooner or later. There’s no doubt, consistent efforts can give you massive results in the long run.
3. Their top priority is to build genuine relationships online
Most bloggers these days are worrying only about increasing their income and sales, they’re REALLY not caring about building great relationships with other bloggers.
Observe any top blogger in your niche, they all have great relationships with fellow bloggers, they all have great communities around their network. They’ll always notice great responses from their network when they create great content, products or membership sites.
They know the value of building an email list, they know how online businesses work. That’s how they create thriving audience around their blogs. If you want to become a successful blogger, make sure you’re also building an email list and interacting with other bloggers on a regular base. This way you’ll create a great community around your blog.
4. Successful bloggers are hard workers
Successful bloggers work very hard to succeed in what they do. Without working hard, you really can’t expect success in your field, agree? Hard work is what their main asset to achieve anything. It gives them boosting power to follow their dreams and achieve them, period.
Successful bloggers know how important it is to manage their time. They always know their online distractions, and they work hard to overcome their distractions all the time. They work in separate environments where they get less distracted by inner or outer forces. They always finish the projects or their deals within the time (without getting distracted).
If you want to become successful in your niche, then control your time. Don’t let your precious time go in the hands of social media sites like Facebook, twitter or YouTube. Let the social media sites work for you, not against you. Learn how to control your time, and know your distractions and try to overcome them as soon as possible. If you can’t control your time, you can’t become successful person in your field.
5. They finish what they start
This is a very unique quality that separates a successful blogger from ordinary bloggers. Most bloggers who start their online businesses or blogs will probably end up by achieving nothing – because they don’t know the reason they’ve started blogging. They created blogs by reading other successful bloggers income reports or any videos and they’ll end up when they don’t notice any growth on their blogs.
First off, know the purpose of your blogs. Why did you start it and what do you want to get from your blogs? Is it only money or online reputation? Then play according to the game. But always give some time to succeed.
Bonus: They plan ahead
Do you schedule your posts? How often do you work on connecting with other bloggers and improving your network around your blogs?
Successful bloggers know what to do and when to do? They always plan ahead. They work on creating emergency posts, they schedule their blog posts well in advance.
They know there will be some times, they can’t write blog posts every day and that’s where they use emergency posts to publish. So, tell me how many of you’ve emergency posts on your WP dashboard?
