Many people turn bloggers because they think in is a lucrative business and can generate cash once you start. I will not deceive you blogging is lucrative indeed, if I don’t earn from blogging, I won’t own this blog.
Do you own a blog because you read the how to earn money from blogging article online? Then you may end up pushing your blog onside with an angry look.
The traffic (blog visitors) you get are human beings and what brought them to your site is resource. To meet their demands you will need to feed your site with 100% information required by those visitors.

Nowadays blogging is full of competition, you must have blogging techniques and measures to draw visitors to your blog.
In this article, we will discuss 8 blogging tips a newbie should be familiar with. Beginner and novice bloggers should adopt these steps and experience the turn around in their blogging career.
1. Define Your Blogging Career
Blogging has passed the level where you be a jack of all trade and master of none. Sit, relax and ask your self can blogging be a career? There are many abandoned blogs which resulted from a confusion.
The blog must have a set out pattern, style, uniqueness and quality. Nobody want to visit a blog and discover all he read earlier in a different blog is the same in yours.
You may want to ask yourself this questions
- How to start your blogging career?
- Is blogging a good career?
- Is blogging good for your career?
2. Join The Right Niche
One clear mistake common with beginner bloggers is choosing a niche without proper research. The niche you choose determines the outcome of your blog.
There are heat zone niches where many competitors are flooding into (entertainment) and others people overlook but yet are hot cakes (Technology).
Joining the competitive niche would only get you work like an elephant and earn salary like an ant. If you decide you are blogging for career, you need to sit and think of the right niche to start.
Research on the Niche you choose and know if it is really what you want.
3. Know and Grow Your Target Market
Blogging Job has similar features with marketing careers, you know people you write for and make them return. Visitors are not robots, they are human beings searching for information.
Choosing the wrong niche has made many bloggers unsuccessful in their career. You should also know your audience whether it is globally or nationally.
You shouldn’t expect an Indian visitor if your blog is targeting Canada, Pakistan, or any other country.
4. Spend Time on Your Blog
Many Bloggers ignorantly overlook the power of spending time on a blog. As an expert in search engine optimization (seo), I discovered time is a factor that can better your blogging career.

Experts in Orbitmedia blogging Statistics agree to this fact, they believe
“Bloggers who spend 6 or more hours per post are 56% more likely to report ‘strong results’ than those who don’t.”
The above quote is self explanatory, the more time you invest in your site will yield a better result. Every career needs a business plan, blogging is not exempted.
5. Start Your Blogging Career With The Right Platform
Many beginners choose the cheap and easy platforms without examining the features. The platform you choose matters a lot.
Don’t do the mistake of following the crowd, if necessary undergo html lessons. Unable to use your operate your blog is the beginning of failure.
The two major blogging platforms are blogger aka Blogspot and WordPress. Blogger is relatively cheaper, is that why you chose the platform? WordPress is beginner friendly and I recommend it for novice bloggers.
6. Start With A Stress Free Theme
The theme you install can either build or destroy your bogging practice. As a beginner choose themes you can edit without stress. I said spending time on your blog is good but not wasting it on theme editing.
Themes that requires few changes and are mobile responsive are the themes you should start with. Installing a theme that need much editing could get you confused.
If you don’t know what you are doing stop immediately and refer to an expert. I advice beginner bloggers to always allow an expert touch on their first theme.
7. Write Unique And Quality Contents
No body knows what Google ranking factors are, but this is one factor they can not change. Unique articles free from copy and paste from other sources.
Many novice find it so difficult to come up with their own article ideas but find it much more easy to use the Ctrl A + Ctrl V button. Copy and past habit is a virus that kills your blog slowly.
Also while writing, use the right heading tags, know when to use your H2, H3, H4, H5, and H6. H1 is for your article heading, most times H5 and H6 are useless.
8. Monetize Your Blog With The Right Media
How to start earning from your blogging career is up to you, there are many platforms that pay well. I chose Google AdSense, others include affiliate marketing, bidveriser, infolinks, etc.
No matter the platform they all have one thing in common. Remember all you are doing is to improve your blogging career and also attract more visitors.
Blogging has bettered life of many, it is one of the easiest ways to earn money online. But the idea of earning fast from blogging should get a ditching warrant.
Investing resources such as time in your blog is a great way to make the best out of it.
Patience and hard work is all your blog demand from you, using the Ctrl A + Ctrl V button could be tempting but don’t fall for the temptation.
The above guide will not immediately turn your blog to the super blog overnight. It takes time for these above changes take effect, it could take 3 – 7 months depending on your niche.
