NO TRAFFIC! LOW TRAFFIC! NO TRAFFIC! LOW TRAFFIC! NO TRAFFIC!
No matter what is your purpose to have a blog, it is always frustrating if you are working hard, writing posts regularly but not getting enough traffic.
|Many people are lucky who have achieved success in blogging in their first year. LUCKY? Is it? Nope! Actually, they worked very hard to get this. Not only hard work is sufficient but that too in the right direction. Otherwise, there are millions of people who proudly won their blog (or blogs). Many hundred thousands of them also working hard and very determined but very few are successful.|
A few years back it was a little bit easy to be a successful blogger but today you are searching for a path towards success but eventually, you are actually lost in a crowd. Does it sound so negative? Maybe it is but point is, nowadays you need to have proper strategy along with all hard works otherwise nothing is going to happen in reality.
PLAN! WRITE! POST! SHARE!
|A. Plan – Blogging Strategy|
B. Writing Style – Engage Readers
C. Post Carefully – Include SEO
D. Sharing Posts – Execute Promotional Plan
Blogging is no longer an easy game what you can win without any practice or hard work. So to make your website/blog visible to hundreds of thousand readers you need a clear blogging strategy.
But the fact is that not every blogger starts a blog to become a pro. Actually, most of the people start blogging to share their thoughts on various things of their interest. So later on when they think to be a pro and monetize their blog that time it becomes very difficult to set a goal and align everything (past and future blogging activities) towards that goal.
So freeze whole blogging strategy at a very early stage. You have to decide on a multi-niche blog or single niche blog, the tone of voice in your writing, blogging software etc. Then your only task is, writing good content, post those and then share on different channels and interact with readers regularly.

Apart from all, I must tell you from my personal experience that blogging needs a lot of skill, activities, effort and motivation. It demands multiple skills in a blogger and a blogger needs to make his hand dirty with multiple activities. So time management is also an important skill to be developed in a blogger. You will have to be productive and hence a newbie blogger should learn to get more done in less time.
