Blog interpretation is very important and something you should always consider throughout the life of your blog. With blog interpretation, you can decide what to do basing on what your fans are wanting in your blogging niche. In order to make blog interpretation a success, you simply need to step into the shoes of your blog’s readers and think like they do rather than thinking like you would think when it comes to improving your blog.
Blog Interpretation by Improving Your Blog
Look at your blog; look at everything on your blog. From the type of content you serve to the way you have your pages up to the user functionality and friendliness of your theme and navigational structures. Imagine that you are your blog’s reader or fan trying to determine the right blog interpretation in front of you. How would you like to see those sections and areas on the blog, improved? What would make reading the content, pages and navigation easier and more effective? Is there any room for improvement when it comes to seeing the blog through the eyes of the reader? This kind of blog interpretation can help you decide on how you can make your good blog into an even better blog for your niche audience.
Blog Interpretation in the Form of Spying
Spy on your blogging success and assets and determine the blog interpretation that way. What I mean by spying is by embracing the technologies and software available to helping you look beyond the curtain of what your blog provides out of the box. Install a good heat-map tool, submit your blog web address to Google Analytics and keep a count on how many comments a post gets, what type of comments they are and what subjects are getting the most comments. This sort of blog interpretation can show you what strengths and weaknesses are present on your blog and the opportunities that are available for improvement.
Blog Interpretations through Honest Opinions
Ask your readers for blog interpretation studies and surveys! Ask them what they think of your blog and tell them to give you their honest opinion. Tell them that if they find anything negative, you really want them to tell you because you are interested in making your blog better for them. Don’t get upset if you get a bad blog interpretation either because negative feedback can be very beneficial for improving your blog and making it more successful. You might also find that webmaster and blogging forums on the web are helpful for this as well because many of these communities offer sections where you can have the community members give their own reviews of your blog.
Blog interpretation is very important when it comes to driving success to your blog. You might think your blog is a masterpiece but do your readers think of it the same way as you? You want to impress them more than you impress yourself because without them, your blog isn’t anything useful at all, right? Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed this article. Please share this post with your friends, other bloggers and on social media to help show me support for writing it.

How do you see your blog based on your own blog interpretation? How do your readers see your blog based on their own?

If you want to drive traffic to your blog, then you need to be befriending other bloggers in your niche. You can drive traffic to your blog with fans of these other bloggers as they will commonly mention you and your blog after you have befriending them through various means and tactics. Other bloggers can be a big source when it comes to you wanting to drive traffic to your blog. Other bloggers in your niche can help you and your blog out more than they can destroy it which is why I preach so much about why there is a need for competition in blogging careers.
Drive Traffic by Commenting on Other Blogs
You can drive traffic to your blog and befriend other bloggers in the niche by commenting on their blogs. Read each post they write on a daily basis and leave a comment on each of them. Now you need to make sure that you comment is going to get the attention of the blogger so you need to make sure that the comment is unique and full of quality. Try to spark a discussion with your comments or even an attempt to get the blogger to reply to your comment. If the blogger’s fans see that he or she is paying attention to your comments, they too will start to take notice of them and that will usually drive traffic to your blog especially when you link your blog in the URL or Website field when making your comments.
Drive Traffic with Social Media
Befriend other bloggers and drive traffic to your own blog using social media. Get on Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Pinterest and the works and share and reshare the status updates and blog post links of your fellow niche bloggers. There is nothing your fellow bloggers want to see more than you sharing their content with your followers and friends. Do this enough and get the other blogger some more fans and you will soon find that blogger returning the favor and sharing your content on their social media pages as well. That can really drive traffic to your blog when it’s all said and done.
Connect with Other Niche Bloggers
You should also be connecting with other niche bloggers to befriend them and drive traffic to your blog. Follow them and their on social media and request that they become your friend. Email them personally about one of their posts and tell them how the post has helped you in the niche. Attend their live seminars and chat sessions if they offer them. Find them on message forums and get involved on those online communities with them. Upgrade to their premium memberships and online courses if they provide them. Go out of your way to become their good friend. Their fans and followers will notice you being their great friend and thus, it will drive traffic to your blog.
Befriending other bloggers in your niche is a great way to drive traffic to your blog. You just want to make sure you remain professional about it and don’t come off as a stalker. Luckily, public figures like bloggers understand that their fans are going to try to connect with them and befriend them and a blogger should understand this way before they get into blogging in the first place. Thank you for reading my article and I hope my advice will help to drive traffic to your blog. Please help support me for writing this article by sharing it with other bloggers that you know and by sharing it on your favorite social media websites as well.

Has befriending other bloggers in your niche helped to drive traffic to your blog? What other tips would you give bloggers who are attempting to befriend other bloggers in their niche?

Successful bloggers don’t make their way to the top by not paying attention to the blog niche around them. If you want to join the realms of successful bloggers and see extended success with your own blog, I highly recommend that you look to other successful ventures of other bloggers in or around your niche. Successful bloggers are not really that secretive about how they are so successful either so it should be that much of a challenge for you to figure out what they did to become successful bloggers and what you should do to become one of the successful bloggers as well.
Successful Bloggers Are Copy Cats
Don’t get offended by this statement if you are one of the successful bloggers I am speaking of. I don’t mean that successful bloggers are not unique or original, I mean that in order to duplicate the success of another blogger, you need to follow in that blogger’s footsteps and that is normal, it’s what most bloggers do. I get ideas from other bloggers and I integrate them into my blog. It’s not stealing their ideas, its embracing the success of their ideas. Now don’t go copying what they write about word for word, at that point, you should always think about being fresh and unique because your niche doesn’t want to read about the same topic more than once.
Successful Bloggers Follow Blogging Bloggers
Blogs about blogging like this blog, ProBlogger, Daily Blog Tips and so on are great examples of successful bloggers that you should be following and learning from. We [blogging bloggers] blog about our successful experiments and trials of our blogging experience and try to allow you to have the same luck as we have had. If you want to know how to get more readers to your blog, follow blogs about blogging. If you want to know how to make more money with your blog, follow blogs about blogging. If you want to join the successful bloggers blogosphere, again, follow blogs about blogging. These successful bloggers have one thing in mind when they publish new content – that is to help you and all bloggers become successful bloggers.
What do Successful Bloggers have that you don’t have?
When learning from other successful bloggers, you need to really pay attention to their blogs, pages, posts and ideologies. You need to determine what they have that you do not have. Once you determine this, you can usually tell what features you and your blog is lacking to upgrade your status to one of those successful bloggers in the niche. It could be something small to like a good start page for your readers to start out on with your blog. But then again, maybe it is something that is considered complex like a set of courses to help people learn more about your niche and how they can improve their knowledge of that niche. Just follow successful bloggers and see what you are missing out on.
Following successful bloggers is the same thing you want to succeed in with your own blog. You want your readers to read your blog to gain knowledge of your niche. You should be following other successful bloggers to gain knowledge of being a successful blogger. I hope you have enjoyed this article and I thank you for reading it. Please help support me for writing it by simply sharing this post other bloggers and especially on your favorite social networking profiles.

Blog content lengths are an important aspect of blogging. If your blog content lengths are too short, then you probably won’t be able to make a valid point with your posts. If your blog content lengths are too long, you might end up boring your readers. So what are the perfect blog content lengths to focus on when writing your blog posts? In this article, I want to tell you about the types of posts to write and the types of blog content lengths to be focusing on for those post types. You want to make sure that your blog content lengths are perfect, right? I mean it is you who is researching, writing and spending all that time on your blog post to begin with – so of course, you want it all to matter.
Short Blog Content Lengths
When writing shorter blog content lengths, you need to be careful about failing to include the right information. Usually, my shortest blog content lengths are at a minimum of 400 words and I usually keep my minimum at around the 550 to 850 word range. That range gives me a decent length to explain what needs to be explained without requiring my readers to have to spend too much time reading what I have to say to them. However, I might use a 300 word length on the occasional question-specific post. For example, I might start off a post asking “What made you get into blogging?” and then provide a short paragraph about my story on getting into blogging and then end it with a Call-to-Action asking the reader to comment with their story. I would also keep special offers and advertisement-based posts to a shorter length as well. Shorter blog content lengths should be reserved for something to be read quickly and some form of action to be quickly performed right after.
Long Blog Content Lengths
Like I said, my sweet spot in terms of blog content lengths is right at about 550 to 850 words or somewhere in that area because I can get out the information I need to get out without taking too much time from my readers. However, occasionally I like to writer longer blog content lengths in upwards of 1,000 to 3,000 words. I specifically reserve these lengths for guides and list-type posts. If I am writing a guide about “how to market your blog on Facebook”, I would want to include as much information as I can – the same goes with lists and bigger tip articles. But when I do write these longer blog content lengths, I try to inform the reader at the beginning by adding “Guide” or “List” to the title and headings so that they know what to expect.
Really Long Blog Content Lengths
I often recommend that if you decide to write a blog post that is over 5,000 to 10,000 and up words – consider writing an eBook instead. Reading that much content is going to take up some time from your audience and that isn’t always what people are looking for when they visit your blog. An eBook is simple to write because it’s just like writing a huge blog post but you need to organize it a bit better and show some extra attention to editing it to perfection. Plus, eBooks are great for marketing your blog! You can give them away to readers who subscribe to your mailing list or follow your blog on Twitter. You can even sell your eBooks and make a decent profit. Longer blog content lengths turned into eBooks will tell the reader that they are about to read something that is longer than a blog post. Don’t write really long blog content lengths only to witness them never being read simply because they are too long. If you don’t want to write an eBook, another option for longer length blogging is an article series which is also wonderful for marketing your blog.
Thank you for reading my blog post about blog content lengths. I hope this post has helped you out today. Please help me out by sharing it with other bloggers and on your favorite social media websites. I would also like to invite you to my forum, Another Admin Forum which has a wonderful section on discussing blogging with other bloggers. Join up and invite your friends, today!

In terms of blog content lengths, what have been the shortest blog posts you have written and the longest lengths as well? Have you ever written an eBook or a blog article series before?

Quit writing blog posts about what you want to write about! That statement sounds bad, right? It might upset you, right? Who am I to tell you what to write about, right? What if I am your audience? It would be a different story then, wouldn’t it? Quit writing blog posts about what you want to write about and start writing blog posts that your audience wants you to write about. Now that statement doesn’t sound so bad after all, does it? When writing blog posts, we write for our audience, right? So we need to make sure we are writing blog posts that our readers actually care about and not just something that we want to cover and that we assume they will care about.
Writing Blog Posts for Others: Finding out What Others Want
So the first thing about writing blog posts for others is figuring out what they want you to write about in the first place. But how would you go about finding out this valuable information? Simple, really – Just ask your readers what they want to see! You can ask them through means of social media. You can create a blog post that focuses on asking your readers what they want when you are writing blog posts on your blog. You can even discuss future post ideas when you are having a discussion with your readers in the comments section. A lot of times, reader comments will have hints and questions about subjects they wish to learn more knowledge about and you can work on those topics from there. If you don’t ask your readers what they want, then you will really never know what to cover when writing blog posts in the future.
Writing Blog Posts for Others: Remember Unique and Fresh Counts
When writing blog posts for your readers, they don’t just want you to throw down some basic information that they can read anywhere else on the web. They want something fresh and unique after reading your blog posts. So how can you make this happen? It is simple, research and research some more. Being a blogger is a lot like being a college researcher. You have to research problems and experiments at uncovering the solutions to those problems. You need to gain experience with any problems that you are researching so you truly know how to report your findings. If you provide a solution to a challenge that no one else is providing, then you are providing something fresh and unique to your audience.
If you’re Writing Blog Posts for You, Stick to a Diary!
Writing blog posts for your readers should be your main objective. If you are writing about topics that you are interested in blindly without realizing if that is what your fans want to read, then you are basically trying to market your content to just you. It is 2014 my friend, it is very easy to figure out what people want to see when they read your blog posts and don’t let that tip flee from your brain. If you haven’t figured out what to be writing blog posts about based on what your audience wants, then you seriously need to reevaluate your need to be blogging in the first place or just follow the tips in this article to get a better start at it.
Thank you for reading my blog post about how you should be writing blog posts for your readers rather than yourself. I hope this article has helped you with your own writing strategies. Please help encourage me to write more articles like this by simply sharing this post on social media and with other bloggers that you know. Your support keeps me motivated to keep on writing and it greatly appreciated.

Useless blog marketing strategies are just that, useless! Some of the useless blog marketing strategies out there don’t do anything at all for your blog in terms of marketing and promoting it. Some useless blog marketing strategies will actually harm your blog because of how search engines now look at those strategies. If you truly want effective success for your blog, then quit wasting time using these useless blog marketing strategies out there and start using strategies that actually make sense to use. In this article, I wanted to point out 7 different useless blog marketing strategies that I think are ruining a lot of blogs out there on the World Wide Web – don’t let your blog be one of the blogs I am referring to.
Useless Blog Marketing Strategies #1: Website Directory Submission
If you’re as old school as I am, then you probably remember the days of trying just about everything to get your blog link accepted on DMOZ even if that meant you had to become a DMOZ editor. I was a DMOZ editor for quite a while up until a couple of years ago when I simply quit logging into it. Directories are useless blog marketing strategies these days because they are irrelevant marketing techniques. Irrelevant links are a big “No No” when it comes to search engine ranking on Google and other major search engines and besides, who surfs website directories anymore? I can’t honestly remember the last time I chose to surf a directory rather than Google!
Useless Blog Marketing Strategies #2: Mass Marketing Systems
Mass marketing systems provide useless blog marketing strategies because they are so easily detected these days and not just by search engines but by actual readers and niche fans as well. If you pay $1 for 5,000 Facebook page likes or $100 for a software that will give you 100,000 back links within 24 hours, expect people to catch on to what you are doing and title you as a fraud in your niche. Using these mass marketing systems is only tagging you as dishonest and lazy. If you cannot get out there in the blogosphere and market your own blog on your own time, then why bother even blogging in the first place?
Useless Blog Marketing Strategies #3: Spam Marketing Tactics
Do you know what I do when I see spam? Nothing, because I don’t see spam anymore! My forums, blogs and even my email accounts all have sophisticated anti-spam systems integrated within them that completely blocks out spam from ever getting within my eyesight range. Spamming to increase traffic to your blog is not only one of the most useless blog marketing strategies out there but it’s purely a waste of your own time because chances are; people are not even going to see the spam because of our lovely spam blocking advancements we have today.
Useless Blog Marketing Strategies #4: Generic Content Marketing
Back in the old days, content was content; any content was good content as long as there was content. You could write something extremely generic, post it and see the success of doing so. However, this was back in the days where people still read books for answering their questions. Nowadays, people primarily use the internet to solve their problems and they don’t want to find nonsense solutions that are not worth reading – search engines have identified these needs and thus, generic content joins the large list of useless blog marketing strategies. Avoid this horrible strategy by actually adding quality and unique elements to the blog posts that you are writing – try to actually solve a problem and you will get a smile and tons more readers as an end result.
Useless Blog Marketing Strategies #5: Black Hat SEO Techniques
Don’t try to trick Google! Google has more money that you will ever see, more experts joining their ranks each day and all sorts of technology that make us humans look like fruit flies in comparison. Black Hat SEO consists of nothing but useless blog marketing strategies. It doesn’t work and it never will. Don’t be dishonest and never lead readers to believe something that isn’t going to happen. See, if people are unhappy with their search results, they will use a different search engine. Do you honestly think Google and other big search engines are going to allow you to do that to them? Nope, they will just ban your website and be done with it.
Useless Blog Marketing Strategies #6: Email Marketing
This is probably going to spark a debate but I stand by my opinion that mailing lists and newsletters are out dated and useless blog marketing strategies. You send like one email a month because anymore is just going to upset subscribers and make them think you are spamming their inbox. You might say something in your last email and regret not mentioning something else. I have subscribed to so many newsletters but do I actually read them all? Not at all! However, I do read social media and that is where it’s at, friend. You can update your page multiple times a day and not offend anyone plus you have great analytics to determine where you need to improve. I use social media more than I check my email messages – so what does that say about email marketing, really?
Useless Blog Marketing Strategies #7: Duplicate Content Posting
Posting duplicate content has been among the useless blog marketing strategies pool for quite a while now but you need to understand what this means. If you write a blog post, it should only be posted once. Don’t copy and paste it into an article on another blog or an article directory and don’t write about the same exact thing again and again. Cover a topic and then publish it and then move on to the next topic. I will only write about the same topic again if I have something great to add to it and then I will just link the old blog post to the new blog post with brand new content, tips and strategies added to it. No one wants to read the same thing over and over again!
Thanks for reading my article about 7 useless blog marketing strategies that you should stay away from. I hope this article has helped you out with your own blog marketing tactics. Please help support me for writing this article by simply sharing it with other bloggers. You can also support me by sharing a link to this article on social media as well. Your support will motivate me to write more free articles for you to enjoy and learn from.

Blog niche discovery is important because you want to be able to determine what niche you need to focus on with your blogging, right? But how would you go about blog niche discovery without employing high paying analysts and spending a lot of energy on it in the first place? Instead of wasting your money and time of paying for blog niche discovery service, I have a simple 3-step process you can follow to quickly and easily discover what you should be blogging about.
Blog Niche Discovery Step #1: Determine Your Interests
Determining what you are interested in is the first step of blog niche discovery. What are your interests? What are your hobbies? What topics do you know a lot about? What subjects do you find yourself always thinking about each and every day? What do you enjoy doing for fun? Ask yourself these questions and they will lead you to a blog niche discovery that you have been waiting for.
I thought about this step with my blog. I really enjoy blogging and helping others enjoy blogging as well so I figured a blog about blogging would be the blog niche discovery I was looking for. So I started Your Dream Blog after discovering that I would enjoy writing about blogging.
Blog Niche Discovery Step #2: Determine Your Topics
Now that you have determined what you are interested in and have identified your blog niche discovery, it’s time to write some content and push it out to the world. In this step, you want to write 5-10 articles covering multiple subjects within the niche you have chosen to go with. Make sure they are subjects that you know about first so that you actually know what kind of content you need to be putting down on your blog posts.
So with this blog, I wrote some article about creating blog posts and what to include in your content, search engine optimization, social media marketing and earning revenue with a blog. I wrote some quality content articles, published them and then marketed them a bit by sharing the links through other blog comments, message forums and social networking and bookmarking sites. They started getting traffic and readers and I sat back and watched.
Blog Niche Discovery Step #3: Determine Your Niche
After writing your 5-10 articles on various subjects within your niche, marketing the articles and letting them get some readers – now you need to focus on what article worked and what article didn’t work. You do this by reading the analytics of your blog and seeing which article got the most reader attention, shares, and comments and so on. Once you realize which articles got more attention than the others, you will encounter your blog niche discovery and from then on, you will know what to write about in the future.
I discovered that people enjoyed my “how to” articles on getting traffic the most, so I try to cover those topics the most on this blog. Like this article for example, it’s aligned with bringing traffic to your blog because it helps to address the type of traffic you wish to bring to your blog after getting your blog niche discovery identified. And there are more topics like this to come as well.
Thank you for reading my blog about blog niche discovery. I hope this article has helped you with your own blog and to discover your own niche for blogging. If this article has helped you, please return the favor and help me by inviting other bloggers to read this article and especially by sharing a link to this article on your favorite social networking sites.
Your turn to comment!
After trying this method out, what is your blog niche discovery? Do you tend to blog about more than one subject in your niche or do you like to just stick to one specific subject? What is your niche and why are you so interested in it?

Profitable reader engaging can be very possible for any blogger out there running a niche blog, including you! This article is an instructional article on how you can accomplish profitable reader engaging and how easy profitable reader engaging actually is. It is fairly easy but it will actually require you to engage with your blog’s audience so you will need to be sure that you are doing just that.
Profitable Reader Engaging: Step #1 – The Community
The first step of accomplishing profitable reader engaging success on your niche blog is by engaging with your readers and focusing on profit later. Don’t worry, we will get to the part of actually making money from it – I promise. But first, you have to build it if you want them to come, right? Right! So focus on building a community first, and then profits, second.
How do you build a community, though, especially a profitable reader engaging community? The answer is simple, you simply embrace the fact that a blog is a part of the internet and that the internet is quite unlimited when it comes to the power of actually establishing a community with its features and tools!
Consider a message forum – A message forum integrated into your blog where readers can post questions about your niche directly to you and your other readers. Open up a free message forum using something like BB-Press if you are on WordPress and invite readers to join it. Be an active member posting questions in the form of new topics on a daily basis – develop an active community so that you can actually get to the fun part of profitable reader engaging success.
Profitable Reader Engaging: Step #2 – The Profit
Now it’s time to make your community a profit machine! Turn free registration off and require newcomers to pay a fee to be a part of the message forum. Offer more incentives too! Not only will they receive access to you and your readers on the message forum but once a month, you have a live chat session and you upload a new niche-based course on your paid community each week. These are just a few ideas to consider.
IMPORTANT WARNING: Don’t boot your current forum members off the community and make them pay for it. Grant them free access for being the beta testers of your online community. Don’t charge too much for membership, either. Once I launch a paid membership for this blog, I plan on keeping the price somewhere in the $4 to $6 a month range making it very affordable but still relatively cheap. Don’t break the bank or your readers might get discouraged!
The only thing that has changed about your community is that it’s no longer free! To maintain a profitable reader engaging community – you need to maintain your community activity. Always continue to be active posting on a regular basis and always try to add new things for existing members to further enjoy the community – add things that help them with their challenges and issues based around your blogging niche. Keep them happy, especially if you want them to keep paying your for the membership.
Thanks for reading my article about profitable reader engaging – a quite possible success with the use of developing a community that can integrate into your blog. I hope you found this article to be helpful. Please share it with other bloggers to help show me support for writing it and feel free to share it on social media as well because that will give me even more support.

Have you tried profitable reader engaging on your blog yet? What other ideas besides a message forum would you recommend for developing a profitable community on your blog?

Brand loyalty is something you should be working on right when you launch your blog. If you are not working on brand loyalty at this time and your blog is already online, don’t worry, you can start your brand loyalty efforts now. Brand loyalty is basically converting general readers into loyal readers of your blog content. In this article, I will show you easy steps in motivating brand loyalty for your blog.
Increase Brand Loyalty by getting to know Your Blog Readers
Brand loyalty can easily be accomplished by simply getting to know your blog readers. How can you increase brand loyalty by getting to know your blog readers? Simple – get to know them by commenting on their comments, encouraging them to comment, asking them relevant questions and starting some form of community for them to communicate with you on such as a message forum, your Twitter page or even social groups of some sort. Focus on meeting new readers and making new friends and that will develop significant brand loyalty for your blog.
Increase Brand Loyalty by mentioning Your Blog Readers
Without being a stalker, consider increasing brand loyalty on your blog by mentioning your readers during your blog posts. Let’s say that Johnny asked a question in the comments section of a previous blog post. Take Johnny’s question and actually turn it into a blog post mentioning Johnny as the one who asked the question and answer it for them through the blog post. This will help your readers understand that their thoughts and feedback are actually valuable to your blog.
Increase Brand Loyalty by helping Your Blog Readers
Helping your blog readers with their problems will increase blogging and brand loyalty tenfold. When you write, you should be writing to help your audience. When I submit new blog posts on this blog, I write each and every one of them to be informative and educative for you. I want to show you an easy way on making your blog better and that is what I tend to focus on with all my blog posts. You need to actually focus on your reader needs if you want them to go towards brand loyalty with you and your blog.
Thank you for reading my article about brand loyalty and how to increase it on your blog. I hope this article has helped you today – if it has, please show me some support for writing it for you. You can support me for writing this article by sharing it with other bloggers and especially by sharing it on social networking sites that you belong to.

Blog writing motivation might be hard to come by at times. We all get burned out from writing time to time and some of us quit blogging altogether because we lose the blog writing motivation we once had. That should never really happen to you or any of us – so I wrote this article to share my 5 easy secrets on keeping up with your blog writing motivation so that you can keep up with your blog.
1 – Timing Matters for Blog Writing Motivation
Blog writing motivation will come at a time where you are actually motivated to write in the first place. Focus your efforts on trying to decide the best times to actually write on your blog. Maybe it is when you first wake up or before you go to bed or somewhere in between. If you are losing your blog writing motivation so quickly, maybe it is because you are doing it at the wrong time of day or night.
2 – Organization could help with Blog Writing Motivation
Organizing your blogging activities could help increase your blog writing motivation in general. I have a calendar that I write based off of. One day I will write on this blog, the next day I will write on another blog I have – I like to mix things up a bit but in a uniform pattern. You should also try to stay organized by staying ahead of schedule so that blog posts keep posting while you are regaining motivate to write more of them.
3 – Niche Interest is important for Blog Writing Motivation
Blog writing motivation will DIE if you are not actually interested in the topic of your blog. You need to blog about niches, genres and topics that you actually enjoy. I wouldn’t blog about football because I don’t watch it and have no idea how it works. I blog about blogging because I love blogging and I own several blogs and even a blog network! You need to fall in love with the niche in order to keep your blog writing motivation secure.
4 – Risk taking will increase your Blog Writing Motivation
Risk taking doesn’t sound like blog writing motivation but it really is. Don’t be predictable, be an innovator instead. Don’t just focus on one sub-topic of your niche, focus on them all. Try different writing styles, video blogging, and podcasting and so on. Try different approaches to citing your content and researching for new ideas. Make it less monotonous to actually write on your blog.
5 – Audience Communication leads to success in Blog Writing Motivation
When all else fails and you are dramatically losing your blog writing motivation, turn to your fans. Communicate with your readers as frequently as you can. Talk to them through comments on your blog posts, social media, and email and even on message forums and chat rooms. Your readers will help show you that you are worthy and they will often give you new ideas for new blog posts to write.
