1. Define Your Goals

Before starting a new blog, it's crucial that you outline your desired goals for it. Your blog site has a better potential for success once you know right from the start what you aspire to achieve with it. Think in advance to what you want to achieve from your blog site in 6 months, 1 year or three years.

2. Know Your Audience

Your blog's style and design as well as contents must reflect the anticipation of your target audience. As an example, if your target audience is teens, the style and contents will be very distinct from a blog aimed at business professionals. Your target audience will have natural anticipation for your blog site. Don't ignore them but instead satisfy and surpass those expectations to win their loyalty.

3. Be Consistent

Your blog site is a brand. Just as well-known brands like Nike or Coke, your blog site signifies a specific meaning and impression to your target audience that is your brand. Your blog's style, design contents must constantly relate your blog's over-all message and image.

4. Be Persistent

An active blog site is a helpful blog. Sites which are not kept up to date regularly are understood by their audience as stationary web pages. The performance of websites emanates from their timeliness. Although It is necessary not to post worthless posts or else you may wear your visitors, it's crucial that you update your blog regularly. The simplest way to keep visitors in returning is to usually have something totally new and significant for them.

5. Be Inviting

Probably the most unique challenges with running a blog is its social influence. Thus, it's necessary that your blog site welcomes visitors and encourages them to sign up for a two-way discussion. Ask the future prospect to leave their comments by posting queries than reply to comments of your audience. Accomplishing this will show your potential customers that you recognize them, and this will make the discussion going.

6. Be Visible

Your blog's success depends on your time and effort outside your blog. All those efforts involve discovering like-minded writers and leaving comments on their sites, taking part in social book-marking via sites like StumbleUpon, Digg and by becoming a member of social networks such asLinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook. Creating a profitable blog site demands hard work by generating persuasive contents on your blog site and by working beyond your blog site to advertise it and establish an online community around it.

7. Take Risks

Novice bloggers tend to be fearful of blogging tools and options at hand. You shouldn't be scared of taking risks and in trying something totally new on your blog site. From incorporating the latest plug-in to having your 1st blog contest, it is crucial that you maintain the freshness of your blog site by utilizing modifications that will increase your blog's success rate. In addition, don't be taken in by each and every new bells and whistles that can be utilized on your blog site. Instead,

8. Ask for Help

Even the most skillful blog writers are aware that the blogosphere can be an ever-changing arena and no one has learned everything you should know about running a blog. Most significantly, blog writers are a part of a close-knitted online community, and nearly all blog writers know that everybody has been a novice in the past. The fact is, blog writers are probably the most friendly and very helpful people you could find. Do not be afraid to get in touch with fellow blog writers for help. Bear in mind, the achievements of the blogosphere depends on networking, and the majority blog writers will always be happy to expand their communities no matter if you are a novice blogger or a seasoned professional.

9. Keep Learning

It looks like every day you will find new tools accessible to bloggers. The net changes rapidly, and blogging isn't an exception to the rule. When you build your blog, Invest time in researching new methods and functionalities, and be mindful of the newest news in the blogosphere. Who knows if a new tool will be revealed that can help make your life simpler or boost your readers' activities on your site?

10. Be Yourself

Remember, your blog site is an expansion of both you and your brand. Your faithful readers will keep returning to listen to what will you say. Inject your character into your blog site and adjust to a uniform tone in your content. Decide if your blog site and brand name could be more powerful with a snarky tone, business tone or a youthful tone. Then remain in step with that tone in your blog's marketing and sales communications. People do not read blogs merely to discover the news.

Promote your latest blog post in a creative way

Hello folks, today our guest author Melisa Marzett has taken some of her precious time to write for us. See how to become an Guest Author in My Blogging Techniques.

Each mature blogger pays close attention to write quality content for his blog. He knows how to write a good post the readers will like. But nowadays the success of your blog depends a lot on its right promotion. Everybody who is involved in blogging knows by heart that each post should be promoted in social media and commented on a lot. This is what everyone does. I want to offer you some more creative and less known ways of doing a blog promotion. So, if you’re ready to start over for gaining a desired blogging success, let’s get down to it:

clip_image002

1. Create a short video preview of your post with Vine. It can be either intriguing or promotional, or even both. Share this video in social media with the links to your post. After watching an engaging video content people will more likely click the link and get to your blog.

2. Make an overview of your post in SlideShare - and include several links to your post. Visualize the main points and offer the readers to visit your blog for detail. If you can make the information visibly attractive, most of them will do.

3. Announce your upcoming post in a few words. If you can, divide a long post into two or three smaller parts, and invite readers to learn more by coming back when the next piece is released. Or simply announce the post topic and short contents in social media a day before.

4. Banner on a relevant blog. Find one of the top-rated blogs in your field and buy a banner advertisement for your blog post. Yeah, it can cost a lot for you, but if the banner is chosen correctly and the post is really good, this tactic can provide you with hundreds of new unique readers in a comparatively short time.

5. Share the images from your post in Instagram or Pinterest. Do it on your page as well as in groups. Make sure you’ve got quality and social media friendly images (research the latest trends) with a logo of your blog or company on them.

6. Run the contest : Think over the prize yourself, but the terms should be about sharing your newest post socially. Announce that the winner will be chosen by random or the one who collects the biggest number of reposts or likes wins.

7. Signature. Add the link to your latest post to your email signature, forum signature etc. So, a big number of people you usually communicate with will get the link to it and probably want to check it. Make sure to add the call to action as well. This looks more personal than a social media link and will draw more attention.

8. Ask the bloggers in your niche to mention or share your post. This will ensure you more exposure from your target audience.

        How To Add a Breadcrumb Trail to your Blogger Post

        Have you ever experienced after searching and googling to a comprehensive website, then lose track of where you are, and what you are really looking for? I did, many times. To quote a page on the Yahoo's Design Pattern Library: "When the page displayed is within a hierarchy of pages and is not the topmost page," the reader needs some sort of "understanding of where she is in relation to the rest of the site."
        The breadcrumb trail at the top of a post provides a nice solution to this problem. In a breadcrumb, you can always click on the label/category before it, or click the "Home" link to go back to the front page. More importantly, the user knows where she is, something that other navigation widgets such as the out-of-the box label, or my previous "tab hack" are not able to address (yet.)

        bc

         

        Below are two easy steps to install the "Breadcrumbs Hack"

        Step1: Embedding Function Definition and Function Call.
        Go to Template->Edit HTML, then check the Expand Widget Templates checkbox.
        Look for the Blog1 widget (<b:widget id="Blog1" locked="false" title="Blog Posts" type="Blog">), then locate the main includable:
        Put the below code right in front of the highlighted text:

        bc1

        <b:includable id='breadcrumbs' var='post'>
        <!-- Breadcrumbs hack. By Hoctro 9/11/2006 http://hoctro.blogspot.com -->
          <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'>
              <p class='breadcrumbs'>
              <span class='post-labels'>
                <b:if cond='data:post.labels'>
                  You are here:
                  <a expr:href='data:blog.homepageUrl' rel='tag'>Home</a>  &gt;
                  <b:loop values='data:post.labels' var='label'>
                    <b:if cond='data:label.isLast == "true"'>
                      <a expr:href='data:label.url' rel='tag'> <data:label.name/></a>
                    </b:if>
                  </b:loop>
                  <b:if cond='data:post.title'>
        &gt;  <b><data:post.title/></b>
                  </b:if>
                </b:if>
              </span>
              </p>
          </b:if>
        <!-- End of Breadcrums Hack -->
        </b:includable>

        Next, add this line:

        <b:include data='post' name='breadcrumbs'/>


        right in front of the line <b:if cond='data:post.dateHeader'>. (Since you're already located the line <b:includable id='main' var='top'>, once you add this new line, it is now part of blog1 widget.)

        bc2

         

        Step 2: Add CSS code
        Add this code at the end of the CSS portion (between the pair skin tags (see picture)


        .breadcrumbs {
        border-bottom:1px dotted #000;
        margin:2em 0 0.5em;
        padding:0 0 0.5em;
        }


        (Feel free to modify the first & third parameters of the last two lines (in bold) to expand/shorten the top & bottom heights.)

        Save your editing, and you should see the breadcrumb only when you view an item page.

        bc4
