    The world is always evolving, and with the surge of new technology, doors have opened for people to pursue different ventures online. Most people crave the freedom of working from home, and having the ability to control what they do with their time. Now, one of the greatest ways to achieve that is by starting your own blog.

    Not only will you be able to choose what niche you enter, so you guarantee you’re passionate about your work, you’ll also be able to spend more time with your family and do the things you love. However, to get to that stage, you’ve got to put in work to generate traffic to your site, monetize it, and grow your blog so you can earn a living from it.

    It’s far from easy to become a successful blogger nowadays, especially with all the competition. But, we’re going to talk you through some ways to achieve that success you’ve been dreaming of. Although, first, it’s important to note that you’re going to need to work hard, persevere and never, ever give up.

    Consistency

    It’s crucial that you keep your uploads consistent, because constant growth will not be able to be maintained without consistency. So, whether you’re looking to post content once a week, or once a month, just maintain that schedule. Although, it may be worthwhile to increase your upload rate at the beginning, so you stock your blog full of amazing content.

    Engaging with audience

    Discovering exactly what your audience likes, and dislikes, is a key factor in gaining popularity on the web. But, engaging with your audience through comments and conversations doesn’t just benefit you, it benefits the audience too, because they won’t feel like they’re just another number visiting your site.

    Build social media presence

    Social media is huge these days, and billions of people all over the world are active across the many different social media platforms. Therefore, if you grow your presence and gather a following, you’ll be able to promote your posts and generate more traffic. It’s a superb idea to use social media buttons on your blog so visitors can easily find your profiles.

    Provide value

    Whether you’re endeavoring to entertain people, or help people, it’s vital that you always look to provide some value in every post. This will give people a reason to keep coming back, and will entice new people to become regular visitors too. In addition, value will drastically improve your chances of ranking highly in the search engines.

    SEO

    Many people who start a blog don’t realize there is a skill to driving traffic to your site. Well, there is, and it’s known as Search Engine Optimization. If you implement keywords into your content that are relevant to your niche, post regularly with valuable content, and use tags in your uploads, then you’ll eventually reach page 1 of a search engine. For instance, if you rank on page 1 of Google, you’ll access a ton of free traffic!

    I often see that people write something just to keep writing. They often simply don't know what to write about so they publish various useless crap.

    Ii would like to add one more point related to blogging
    Talking about others: Your writing no doubt has to be original but there is no harm if you quote someone with their name for benefitting your audience. You can use relevant quotes and ideas from the posts of other people and bring their name into the limelight too. -copied

    I have disabled comments on my blog. Since some of the people that comment there, are toxic. I dont understand how they can be so negative. So i think this was benneficial to disable comments.

    In your opinion what is the best way to find your audience's likes and dislikes? This might be too broad a question but if you have insight it would be appreciated :)

    Good post. I would add along with consistency that persistence is necessary. Google Ad Words for example takes about 3 months to start being effective in generating traffic.

    Use a tool like SEMrush to find core concepts, then write about specific topics associated with related keyword phrases. This will point you in the direction for great content, plus it is related to the core keywords. As a result, you will produce better content that is relevant to the needs of your audience... plus you will have a much larger footprint. Also, guest blog... a lot.

    Thanks for the tips mate. I plan on starting my own blog/new site soon where I will be marketing affiliate links and hopefully get sponsored by companies to talk about there products (one day)

    Any tips for how often I should upload content? I was thinking once maybe twice a day?
