5 Tips For Bloggers To Have Fun While Writing

For many bloggers, writing becomes a task do be done with rather than another opportunity to share something interesting with the world. This is one of the main reasons why most bloggers fail at blogging. When you are having fun while writing, it tells. This post is a bloggers guide to have fun while writing.

Have Fun Blogging

“If it’s not fun, you’re not doing it right.” ~ Bob Basso

Write About Topics You Are Interested:

This is the numero uno rule to enjoy writing articles for your blog. When you are interested in the topic you write, the research for it will not really seem like a lot of hard work as it will be a learning experience for yourself. This is one of the main reason why in this blog you will find that most topics are related to “blogging” and “entrepreneurship” – they interest me and I can obsess over them for hours without calling it work.

You Don’t Need To Follow All The Rules:

First off, in blogging their are really no rules. There are just a set of protocols that have been mentioned by pro-bloggers which have helped them make their blog successful. Neither is anyone going to grade you according to the format you have followed. My recommendation is to set your own rules of blogging. See what works for you, change things up a bit. Once you begin to step out of that invisible box you created for yourself, you will automatically find writing much more fun.

Blog at Different Venues:

Don’t have a fixed place for blogging. You can check into CCD (Cafe Coffee Day) or maybe TGI Friday or simply go to a nearby wi-fi zone with a garden to let your blogging energy flow. These days due to technologies such as 3G phones, Data Card and Laptops you can literally blog anywhere you please. Make the most of these and make blogging fun.

Avoid Perfection:

Not every article you write needs to be a masterpiece. You can write an article that is lessn than perfect and still make it viral. Many bloggers begin to hate writing articles because they try too hard to make it perfect – which takes a large toll on their time and effort. Perfection is a word that can bring you down. So try and avoid it.

Play Music, Reward Yourself:

You need not be very serious when you are writing, play some nice music that you enjoy in the background. This can really help you focus. Also, make it a point to reward yourself after a particularly long session of blogging. The personal reward can be something as small as a chocolate bar or an hour of sleep. Its up to you.

These are 5 tips to have fun while writing for your blog, instead of considering more of a work. Blogging is something that was earlier a stress-buster for many. But now it has become a hyper-competitive field. Take the competition and stress out and you will find that you have regained the true joy of blogging.

5 Quick Ways To Get New Blog Content Everyday

New content is the Search engine’s food and if you keep feeding it to the search engines regularly, then you will see positive results in traffic. A blog that has a very high posting frequency is crawled much more often by the search engine spiders. A site which is rarely updated gets crawled even more rarely and ends up standing no where in search engine results.

But, we bloggers know that it is not that easy to get new content every day for a blog. Sometimes, the mind just cannot come up with anything worthwhile to type. Still there is no space for slack and it is required of a blogger to provide new content.

So here are 5 quick ways to get new blog content:

Cover Frequently Asked Questions

There are always a lot of FAQs related to a particular niche. Your first aim as a blogger should be to cover all the FAQ related to the niche that you are blogging about. Additionally, you could also set up a FAQ section on your blog where readers can ask you their questions. You can reply to their queries as a new content on your blog.

Make lists

This is a great way to get new content. I would never put up a post on Content on this blog without mentioning the great advantages of writing “List” posts. Lists are a great way to get your readers interest. In fact, I have noticed it is usually the most effective kind of posts for blogs. You need not always have a “top 10” post. It can have any number of points. Here are some samples:

Case Studies

If you have seen a project that has gone on to be a failure or success. Go ahead and analyze what factors contributed to the outcome. Document the details and post it as a new blog content. Communicating stories of success and failure is a great way to provide value to your readers.

Review a product

Reviewing a product is a great way to create new content. You can review just about anything that is related to your niche. You can pick a book, service, person, tool, etc. for your review. Here is a sample:

Interview an expert

Interviewing an expert is perhaps among the best ways that you can get fresh content for your blog. Because when you interview an expert, not only are you getting valuable content, you also generate a lot of authority. Interviews are always well-received and usually have a great viral capacity.

Always remember that it is your content which will ultimately decide your success. Just keep the posts coming and you will see yourself doing great online.

The Reality Of Pro-Blogging

Pro-blogging is the practice of blogging professionally for a living. There are many cases where we have seen normal people like you and me who have taken blogging to another level and turned it into a career option. It is indeed a very attractive alternative to the usual 9-5 cubicle life that many of us are subjected to. So we see that pro-blogging has really caught on as a rage. This is why I have introduced this new post which will show you the reality of pro-blogging.

Here are three points:

The Unquenching Thirst For Growth

However, at the same time you will soon understand one thing as soon as you turn a pro-blogger – you always want more. Unlike your job, in blogging you will find that there is always room to expand and grow exponentially. No matter how much you money you make online, it will frustrate you that there is always a next level that is bigger and better. So basically you could burn yourself out trying to keep pace of the internet – which we know is continually evolving and new technologies are emerging continually.

It Becomes A Cubicle

So you wanted to escape the cubicle at your IT firm? Well problogging requires you to sit right about the same way you did back at the office. The only difference being that you enjoy your work. But even for the most passionate of bloggers it just become too much to take to sit in front of the screen for hours researching, writing and networking.Of course, there is the liberty to take rests whenever you feel like and taking as many sick-leaves as you want – but it will affect your profits. A minor disadvantage of being your own boss.

You Got To Be A Socialite

There are many people who think that pro-blogging is also a great option for those who are introverted and are not active socially. Although, agreed that a career in blogging would require you lesser communication skills than you would generally need in an environment of a company – but you still have got to be a socialite. If you fully want to realize your blogging potential then it is imperative that you are socially active not only online but in the real world where you can meet and talk to other successful bloggers. This is important to sustain your growth and build a more powerful brand image.
