New Year Resolutions Every Blogger Should Follow in 2017
Along with you I will also be following these resolutions, so lets strive together to make 2017 more interesting and successful. I humbly request you to please make these below resolutions for 100% success 🙂
1) Believe In Yourself, How You Can, What You Can
This stand will not only help you in blogging but also in your real life. Up and downs in blogging is also a feature of blogging and we should accept it.
Many people start blogging to make some money, but this is not so simple. Every thing requires proper efforts and guidelines.
One thing I have observed in my blogging career is newbie bloggers quit blogging once they get rejected by Google Adsense. But dear friends you don’t need to be sad as Adsense is not the only way to make money online.You can even check our Make Money Online category which can be helpful.
For this new year we should make a stand that we will never lose hope and believe in ourselves. Every person is born with unique quality and we should find and develop it !
2) Act Professionally In Your Work
I think I make this resolution every year, but as the year passes down, it literally gets ignored:(. But readers if you really want to be more productive in your work, you should be very professional.
So Acting Professionally during work hour can also be a great resolution or stand you can take for this new year. Acting professionally may include you working for hours, replying to comments you receive on your posts, interacting with readers etc..
From now itself make resolution that you will be more professional in your work:). Trust me guys this will really help you in your life as well as in blogging.
3) Social Media Etiquette
Discipline is very important in every field you work. And when it comes to blogging it is of special importance. You should maintain discipline with your blogging efforts.
Social media is great source to reach out to millions of people. So I think Social Media Etiquette should also come in the list of resolutions every blogger should follow this year. Many bloggers forget giving respect online and this terribly affect their reputation.
Social media discipline can be maintained by not spamming all around. When you are chatting online with your readers always be polite and humble to them. When you are sharing something on social media be sure that it does not give any negative message to your fans.
4) Come Up With New And Creative Ideas
Always giving the readers more than their expectation shows how much hard work you are doing for your readers. We can see large number of posts already written on the same topic, but what will make your post more attractive to readers ? Isn’t that a very important question !
Yes, because until and unless you give some value to your readers, they will not return to your site. So, lets take a stand that we will always try to come up with unique ideas which will be helpful for our readers.
If you make this resolutions and maintain in your blogging journey, no one can stop you from becoming a successful blogger ;).
5) Increase Network Among Bloggers
Learning the things which you don’t know is very good practice. This is exactly what I want to say here. Online marketing or blogging is a field which is continuously changing. To be in the race, its very important to have learning attitude all time.
Making more and more blogging friends can help you simplify this process. I personally work on this and now I have lots of friends in blogging community. This helps me find solutions to problem I am facing. Many times we friends support each other by sharing content etc..
So from now start building your network of bloggers. This will always make blogging simplified to great extend.
6) Get Rid Of All Excuses
Not only in blogging but also in real life this will help you a lot. This is also a success mantra told by many successful people.
You can apply the same thing in your blogging. I have found many newbie ignoring the frequency of updating their blogs. They seem to be making various excuses and this just kept them away from their dream of becoming a pro blogger. So this will be a great resolution for you :).
Now overcome all the excuses and start working. I would like to share the great Indian proverb –
Rise, Awake And Stop Not Till The Goal Is Reached
~ Swami Vivekanand.
7) Start Reading More
This habit is bombarded on us from our childhood. And why should not ? Reading is a very good habit and it adds more to our knowledge. For blogger here I mean to say, start reading famous blogs, understand them and aim at writing much better contents than them.
From this new year we will together take stand of reading other blogs. Reading leads to creativity and develops new and creative ideas. So take a resolution of reading more blogs in this coming new year :).
If you seriously follow this, worries of coming with new and attractive post titles will also disappear from your mind. In all ways reading more will only help you become a better blogger.
8) Organize And Plan Your Work
First planning and then work accordingly has always helped to become more productive in work. Here I would like to say, plan your work and strive to work accordingly.
For this new year I request you to make proper planning of all the work you have to do. Lets take example of replying to comments and commenting on other blogs. Applying this resolution you can dedicate particular days to do certain things and complete them on time.
This will also bring more professionalism in you and can help you take blogging business more seriously :).
9) Always Think Positively
We know negativity is surrounded all over, but we should always think in a positive way. Best way to bring positive energy around is to meditate every day for about 15 minutes.
Concentrate on your work and never become over confident. Here I can say always be calm and keep working. Some may get fruits for their hard work quickly and for some it may take time.
So never stop trying and sooner or later success will come your way ;).
10) Experiment More And Enjoy Blogging
This is something I really need ;). In this new year, I will try to experiment more with my writing and will also observe the results. Experimenting new things helps us find different ways to improve and if not at least shows the ways which doesn’t work for us.
Another thing is enjoy what you are doing, whether you are a content writer, a pro blogger or anyone else.. When you are doing your work with lots of joy and dedication. you are bound to get lots of success.
I am not saying that if you are not enjoying blogging you should quit rather think on the given proverb –
Don’t Find Interesting Job, Make The Job Interesting !
So guys concentrate on your work and you will automatically start enjoying it :).
Finally I would say its not compulsory that every blogger should follow the above resolutions only. But if you follow, this will be really helpful to you :).
Please let me know what different resolutions you will be following in 2017.. Cheers..
Happy New Year 🙂
