“3 Key Tips Showing How to Blog Successfully” written by Mike Marko.
Have you ever stared at your computer, with no clue where to start? Let alone know how to blog successfully?
I know what that’s like…. because I was there. About 18 months ago I had no clue what a blog was, never mind how to blog successfully.
But once you learn how to blog successfully, generating leads, keeping yourself in front of your customers, and making money from your online business won’t be a problem again!
What’s why today I want to talk to you about some of the basics on how to blog successfully. We’re going to talk about the three most important action steps you must take when you want to blog successfully.
Tip #1 on How to Blog Successfully: Choose a Niche
It is important that before you start creating content that you first a blog niche (or subject matter) that is alignment with your passions, specialty, or products and services. Don’t pick a niche that you are not really interested in just because you think you’ll make money online with that topic. If you end up doing that, then you’ll lack passion in your content, and that passion will show up in your writing and you are a lot less likely to succeed.
When you blog, you are trying to get the word out. You are blogging to share what you are passionate about, and you give your readers an opportunity to connect with you, in a social kind of way. Therefore if you fail to choose a blog niche that you will be motivated to write about, it will show in writing. If you are not expressing your passion in your writing, it will show. When you don’t have the right mindset when blogging, then you will have the opposite effect of your desire.
SO put your heart into your writing.
Plus if you pick a topic that you are not really interested in, it will be very difficult to blog daily. In that case you’ll have a tough time motivating yourself to create content daily. Your blog will probably be neglected for days or weeks at a time, and then you will constantly be losing momentum. A blog without momentum will never succeed.

- How are you going to make money with your blog?
- How will you stand out from all the other competing blogs?
- Have you thought abut what kind of problems do you expect with starting a blog?
- How long will it take to start making money online with your blog?
You don’t have to answer every question. But you need to at least have given though to what the answers might be… then formulate actual answers within the first month of starting your blog. Of course your blog will evolve over time, our is evolving, but you need to at least have a good footing to start with.
