If you’re reading this article, that means you’re interested in blogging and you want your blog to be a success. Good for you. A blog is a great tool to use to establish expertise in a particular arena. Keep reading for more insights on what it takes to become a successful blogger.
Principle #1-Define success in your own terms.
You have to decide for yourself what a successful blog looks like. Is the weblog bringing you a lot of money? Do you have a lot of loyal subscribers? It all depends on what you want.
Principle #2-Post regularly.
You don’t have to post three times in one day. You do have to decide on a schedule that you can stick to postonmagazine.com . You’ll turn your readers off if you post on an irregular schedule.
Principle #3-Check your sources before you repeat a story.
I can’t stress this point enough. There are a lot of fake news sites out there. I know you want to be the first to break a story, but you need to make sure something is actually true before you report on it. The last thing you want is to gain a reputation for reporting inaccurate news.
Principle #4-Post original content.
People want to see what YOU have to say about your topic of choice. You do your readers a disservice if you just repeat what other people have to say about your topic. Even if you disagree with the mainstream, post your opinion. This is your site, you don’t have to agree with what everyone else says.
The Internet is the new game changer in every possible way for business and individuals, it’s also a problem, because like the town you live in it brings out those looking to take advantage. Imagine a world with no law enforcement and I show you a day where everyone will try to take advantage, not to benefit others but to benefit themselves. It really isn’t much different than today, many don’t value human life the way we used too and we don’t help each other in the way that we should. We are self serving most of the time, we do things because there is something in it for us. Call me a cynic, but, human nature has proven time & time again we are predictable. We prove day in and day out there is good and evil, dumb & smart and there always has to be a winner and a loser.
The flattening of companies and now the world puts an old power in our hands, you & me! Most of us aren’t equipped to handle this new old power, we will continue to take advantage of others with even more ease. Can we be trusted with this power? Probably not, all you have to do is look at the history of mankind, how we consume everything in our path including people. We are doing the same thing with the Internet, with Social Media and Blogs, consuming and taking advantage.
The picture isn’t all black but it’s dark, I struggle as I’m sure you do with how the rules are being broken, how they are being changed. This new old power we have at our disposal is a double edged sword, it will work for us and against us.
