I see, a lot of bloggers who at first was so excited, so excited finally broke and eventually his blog Dead and never Update. Why? because I see they do not have the capital base, which must be held by those who want to build a successful blog.
Yep, this time I would like to convey 6 basic capital must be owned to be able to build a successful blog. Almost all of the following factors, can be developed and studied. So, there is no real reason, if we have the determination to succeed is strong enough to be a professional blogger.
Sufficient timeNot everyone has enough time to build a successful blog. Meanwhile, blogging is one of the most time-consuming activities that you. Not only to write and produce good content, but you also need a lot of time to build a network with other bloggers, commenting on the blogs of others, gather information, moderate comments on your blog as well as reward and a series of other tasks that clearly require considerable time. How successful your blog, proportional to how much time you are prepared to blogging.
Ability to write
Do you have the ability to pour ideas, concepts and ideas through a series of sentences in written form? Are you able to type without errors of grammar and spelling? Blogging, like it or not is indeed writing activities, have good writing skills is one of the basic capital to build a successful blog. But, of course you do not have to be a "linguist" to become a blogger. Your ability will increase if continuously refined over time.
Expert and master in the topicOne of the things that make a successful blog is that you have to master your chosen topic. At least you have the ability and extensive knowledge in the field. Of course, do not have to have a computer science degree to be able to create a blog on how to fix computers. But, at least you have the expertise, experience, and knowledge and skills in terms of fixing a computer malfunction.
In blogging you will be dealing with technical matters, such as dealing with hosting, domain settings, databases, and more. Even if you use a free blogging service such as Blogger or Wordpress, which is made with both ease and reduce the constraints in terms of technical, but still needed the technical knowledge to run it properly. You need to equip yourself with the basic knowledge of html, script, dns servers, plugins and so on.
Creativity ideas and innovationI see successful bloggers are also the people who look different and creative in presenting something. Which became a benchmark here is not the extent to which you can present something better, but more on how you can present something in a different way. Creativity is also very necessary in terms of presenting a great and valuable content to readers.
Knowledge of blogging
It's actually still part of the technical knowledge that I mean above, but more specific to the knowledge of the world of blogging itself. Like you have to equip yourself with knowledge about the ping service, social bookmarking, and others. So is the stock of knowledge about search engine optimization (SEO) and so on. It should also be knowledgeable about how the blogging world (blogosphere) applies, such as blogging ethics and so on.
That's 6 most fundamental principal amount and that I think is necessary to build a successful blog. Maybe it could be added also design skills and the ability to build good communication to build a strong network, both with other bloggers or readers.
Hopefully Helpful :)
