A great way to increase traffic to your own blog is to leave comments on other blogs.

Keep a folder in Google Reader for your competition and check it daily.

It’s a great idea to post regular comments, in fact, post them anytime you have something to say!

 

Blog often and blog smartly.

Bloggers tend to begin a blog and then post inconsistently.

Readers whose interest is gained at first will become bored waiting for continuations or updated articles.

A good rule of thumb is to create new blogs weekly and send out email updates.

TIP! Be present for your readers. Make it a habit to respond to your readers when they have a question.

Do not purposefully plagiarize in order to create content for your blog.

The reputation that you make for yourself online carries over into every aspect of your life, including any day job and offline friendships.

Plagiarism on your blog will have serious consequences in all aspects of your life.

Finding success in a blog does not require you to write like a professional.

The important thing you need to have is a passion for the things that you are writing.

Buy Your Domain

When you are creating your blog, consider purchasing your own domain name, rather than using a free site.

It does not cost very much to do so, and you will convey a more professional image.

Having your own domain can make it easier for readers to remember and find your blog.

Use your business name or a related keyword in your blog domain.

 

Don’t make running a blog your whole life.

If you don’t take time to step away from your computer once in a while, you are likely to burn out.

It is important that you take occasional breaks.

Walk around the block.

Meet some friends for coffee.

Do whatever pleases you but do something other than sitting at the computer 24 hours a day!

Little breaks like these will keep you feeling fresh and ready to write.

TIP! Do not make too much use of keywords, ads, images or plug-ins on your blog. Such practices will have your blog flagged by search engines, which hurts your ranking and undoes your hard work.

Maintain your authenticity.

Do not try to act like some kind of know-it-all.

Clarity and transparency are keys.

Make this your goal.

A blog is viewed by many as an ultimate expression of someone’s personality.

Reaching for perfection is probably a waste of time, so focus on improving your site instead.

If you are incorrect, then you are incorrect.

Remember, you are not infallible, but you are unique.

You have probably noticed that all you need to do in order to have a successful blog is to understand some easy tricks and be willing to put effort and time into it.

Armed with these key resources, you should feel prepared to get started.

Where your blog ultimately ends up is up to you.
