Blogging For Dummies
I haven’t written a blogging advice post in quite a while. And since it’s the start of the year, meaning many people are going to start blogging, I decided to write a blogging for dummies post. Similar to my SEO For Dummies posts.
And like those posts, I will try to keep it really simple in my blogging for dummies post. Basically, I just want to give new or newer bloggers an outline of how blogging works, how they can grow their blog etc. So if that is the kind of advice you are looking for, keep reading.
I also want to clarify, my blogging for dummies post is mostly aimed towards those struggling to improve their stats but not being very tech savvy. It’s not going to be super technical and difficult to follow. Instead, I’m trying to keep it really easy and simple actually. Also, if you find this helpful you’re not a dummy, lol.
I’ve read so many blogging advice posts online. They are usually created by extremely popular bloggers. And yet, I feel like many of them don’t mention one of the most important things about blogging. You need to have passion when it comes to blogging. You can do everything and anything to push your posts out there but your audience won’t really interact with posts you have written just for the sake of content.
I’ve noticed a huge difference on my posts depending on how passionate I am about the topic. When I write things that I genuinely care about, I get way more interaction. And I get asked a lot how I built the following I have now and what I’m doing right. But the truth is the reason my blog grew and continues to grow is because I only write things I want to and share the content I want to share. I’m passionate about the topics I write about and I think my audience can see that which makes them more interactive.
Quality And Quantity
Some people argue that only quality matters while others say that only quantity matters (i.e post as much as possible). The truth is somewhere in between. Both your quality and quantity matter equally. If you just push out low quality content, you won’t do well no matter how many times a day you post. And on the other hand, no matter how high quality your posts are you won’t get much activity on them unless you post regularly. Especially if you post on a specific schedule so your readers know when you’ll be posting. Both quality and quantity work best when they go hand in hand.
As I mentioned at the start of this post, I have a whole series of SEO for Dummies posts. So, I won’t go into specifics about how to make your posts SEO friendly. However, I will say that SEO is really important if you want to get Search Engine views on your site. Making your posts SEO friendly helps you tap into a whole different audience since it gets your more Search Engine traffic and email followers.

One thing I’ve noticed is that the more active you are on other blogs the more activity you will see on your own. Think about it. There are thousands of blogs out there. It’s probably unlikely that people will just happen to find your blog. That’s why you need to interact with other blogs to get your name out there and to make people know you exist. That may be scary but if you’re looking to grow your blog this is the best way to do it.
I hope this post was helpful. Some of these tips may be obvious to those bloggers that have been around for a while but I hope they are helpful to newer bloggers looking to grow their site and enjoy themselves in the process.
