Blogging Basics For A Beginner
We all are a beginner somewhere, at some point of life. Today, I may know a lot about Pinterest or Blogging, compared to say mailchimp? A beginner starts, his blog with enthusiasm only to see the zest fizz out later. But, what if I told you that blogging is a lot more than just writing a journal?
You can actually earn a good amount and actually help each other grow. So, you ask me how? Let me dive right into this with all the knowledge I have.
My knowledge is based on research, which I do a lot. And, I have also taken online classes.
What Every Blogging Beginner Needs To Know
I have explained here, how to start a blog, in case you would like to read.
So, now that you have a blog, what next? Is it OK to just talk about the weight-loss, or do we need something more?
So, to be clear your blog can be :
- Way To Earn
I used to blog only as a hobby, for years. It is only recently that I started to “earn” a little bit too, via blogging. This is another huge, topic that I will cover later if you all would like.
So, coming back to what the beginner blogger needs to know. There are four things listed below which need your attention more than you think.
- Social Media
- FB Groups
When I started blogging, I did not even know what S.E.O is. Do you know what it is? It stands for “search engine optimization” Loosely speaking, it means that your page pops up when, searched on Google. Not, easy but not tough too. However, it will take a little time to get the hang of it, like any other thing of-course.
Your content, should be good enough to make readers come back to your blog. Even if you are writing fiction the content should be quality. As, they say content is king. There should be a reason, for the reader to share your blog pots or bookmark it.
Social media is an incredible way, to get organic traffic on your website. Twitter, Face Book, Pinterest & Instagram are one of the top social medias. You publish a post, and share the links on your social media. That’s a smart way to increase traffic.
Although, Pinterest is not social media. It is a search engine. And, it happens to be pretty good to get organic traffic on your blog.
Blog hops is an interesting way to link up with other bloggers, and write with them. Many bloggers share a prompt, many have a theme. For example: I just got over with a blog contest where a lot of bloggers wrote on the prompts given.
Now, FB groups are one of the best ways to get some good traffic on your blog. But, following rules is key.
Neha & I made a FB group, back in November, and it could help you with a few basics like :
