8 Dreadful Blogging Habits You’ve Probably Been Following

Blogging has never been easy. You need to generate loads of content, you need to find the ideas that will reach your audience, you need to find visuals that will support your message and make a post more interesting to read. You need to work on the technical aspects of your blog, you need to improve your marketing, you need to participate in all conferences and meeting. You need to do so many things, that an average person cannot handle. You change your lifestyle to keep up with all of these tasks, and you do not even notice how many dreadful habits you get.

Although now you may not even notice the negative effects, in a couple of years or even months, you will see that your immunity system gets weaker, you lose your creativity and inspiration, your health is affected, and you no longer want to devote your life to blogging or any other career. You just want to have a rest and restore the energy you’ve lost while being a blogger.

3 Ways to Make Your Content Marketing Profitable

Content marketing has been hailed as “King” of the digital world for years now. Still, one of the biggest questions surrounding this practice is, “how can we measure the ROI of a blog post?”

A blog post isn’t just a blog post. It’s a drop in a larger bucket designed to fill to the brim with so much value the reader gains trust and respect for your brand. While that trust and respect might not immediately yield a sale, it does something far greater: it yields buzz. That buzz you generate from regularly providing value to your audience translates into sales through word-of-mouth marketing, social media shares, and a loyal base of customers.

Although this strategy is proven, the way it’s deployed continues to evolve.

1. Keep a List of Topics Handy. The biggest obstacle for me is coming up with yet another fresh idea on a topic I’ve already written hundreds of posts about. When we sit down to write, ideas don’t always flow. That’s why I recommend keeping a spreadsheet handy where you can save ideas for when you’re ready to write.

Analytics allows you to see the source of your traffic.  In simple terms, you can view which websites and search engines bring the most people to your blog.  This helps you be more strategic in your social media marketing.  It lets you know which posts are the most influential.  It also gives you an idea which areas of advertising need the most attention.  For example, if most of your traffic comes from the links you place on Twitter, you may need to give Facebook a little more of your time.  This will ensure that you’re receiving traffic from multiple sources not just one.

5 Ways to Get More Comments on Your Blog

Every blogger wants to have an audience that is engaged and cares about what the blogger has to say. A blog with lots of comments and discussions is the type of blog that visitors want to read, bookmark, and come back to because reader-engagement lends social proof to your blog, which is critical for attracting new readers. Unfortunately, many bloggers, especially the newbies, have a hard time attracting any comments from visitors. Most of the time, this is usually due to low traffic but sometimes, it can be due to mistakes that the blogger is making.

5 Ways to Get More Comments on Your Blog

Here are 5 ways to make your blog attract more comments from visitors:

1. Reply to EVERY Single Comment: When you reply to every single comment that someone makes on your blog, it makes the readers feel like it is worthwhile to leave a comment because they know they will get a response from you. This will also make them want to comment on future posts. Even if the comment is just a compliment or a “thank you”, you should still write a response because it lets the commenter know that their comments are being read and they’re not just talking to some random person online. This helps give your blog more personality, which is vital to the success of your blog.
