Blogging can be fun. If you are a newbie and want to learn new ideas on how to approach your blogging style then this post is something great for you.

Before you even begin blogging, it’s important for you to select the best theme for your blog. I use Thrive Theme on my blog and I can assure you it is among the best for any new blogger out there. It has many features that make it easy to use including a content builder platform. The new updated theme has extended menus allowing you to access your WordPress dashboard.

I know you are already excited to hear the ideas I used when I was starting my blog to avoid doing so much for nothing. So, let’s start:

#1. Being Original

Remember that this is your blog and you should share your thoughts and perspective. Approach whatever you sharing at your own angle and don’t be afraid to share your thoughts. But, remember to give people what they want to read. Be unique.

#2. Do Some Research About Blogging

If you seriously want to be the best blogger, then it’s a must for you to read about those who have succeeded. The idea is not for you to copy what they did but to understand how they overcame the obstacles that they faced when they started. You can do this by joining blogging events hosted by fellow bloggers from different fields such as photography, writing or even travel. You can also create your own event and submit it to blog listing for other to join in. This is the perfect way for you to get the feedback of exactly what you want.

#3. The title of your Posts

People will not read a post that has a boring title on assumption that the article is boring too. Be creative and create titles that capture the attention of your readers but still be careful to retain the meaning of your post. Using topics that are almost similar to the trending current events is the easiest way to catch the attention of many people who might have skipped your post without reading it.

#4. Social Media Sharing

Include a social media plugins on your blog that allow visitors to share it. This helps you reach more people out there. Furthermore, that is the idea of having a blog. There are many plugins to use but I prefer Digg Digg, it works perfectly for me. This includes sharing your post on your social media accounts to promote yourself. You can use Buffer, too. It helps you auto-pilot your social media handles.

#5. Encourage Guest Contribution

When a guest post on your blog, it is a sign of getting known by people. It gets better when well-known bloggers post on your blogs because it gives your readers variety. The idea here is to improve your blogging profile by allowing your guest contributor to interact with your readers. You can also post on other blogs as a guest to expand your reach. It works very well! [Remember, it’s a guest contribution]

#6. Start a conversation

It is your responsibility to encourage your readers to leave a comment. 90% of your visitors will more likely read and just move on without commenting and they require stimulation. Remember to reply to their comments because it shows appreciation. Sometimes even asking your readers what they want can do the trick. This can be achieved by use of many tools available on your dashboard from polls to contact form allowing your readers to connect with you without providing their email address. The more conversation rate you’ve, the more it is likely to grow your readership!

#7. Interesting Blog Posts

The worst thing that can happen to you is to bore your readers when they are halfway reading your post. Chances are if this happens, they will never read your posts again. Therefore, you must ensure that your posts engage your readers from the beginning to the end (just like a movie with great start and end). Here are a few tips to help you create popular posts:

  • Be yourself and try to have your own style.
  • Pay attention to grammar.
  • Use appropriate vocabulary.
  • Read through your post several times before publishing it. [ Important ]
  • Use interactive images. [ Now, You can hire me for your blog posts featured images ]

These are among the several ideas I wish I knew when I was starting my own blog because it’s all it takes for a successful blogger.

  • Hi Ana,

    I love your advice for being original.

    I created a neat brand and blog by choosing to be original. I learn from awesome bloggers but I follow no one when it comes to my style. I gotta be me 🙂 And that is for the better.

    I write a bunch daily to help my writing voice come out, to free it, so I can be my authentic self. And yeah; tossing in funny travel stories don’t hurt either 😉

    Ahmad, the blog design looks great! Well done bro.

    Thanks for sharing guys.

  • Ryan Biddulph,
    It’s a huge pleasure to communicate with an internationally renowned blogger, I know your great work through Jane Sheeba’s blogs, which I follow very regularly.

    Thank you so much for your kind comment.

  • Hi Ana,

    Thanks for writing such an AMAZING article at Ahmad’s Blog. I think one of the best ways to survive in blogging is to start communicating in all the way. Be it on Social media, from your email list, through the comments, etc.

    In this way, you’re building relationship with them, and they’re more likely to keep visiting your blog.

    And Ahmad, your blog looks even better now due the the changing in theme. It’s on WordPress now, I guess, right?

    Thanks again Ana though for writing! 🙂

    • Hi Shakir,
      I agree with you! You’re a geek in relationship marketing on social media. I love your strategies 😉
      Thanks for the feedback about the design. Yeah, I am on WordPress now 🙂

  • Hi Shakir Hassan,

    It was a huge pleasure for me to have a post on the Muhammad blog. It was very important to me that he accepted without hesitation my post. Very thankful Muhammad for the opportunity,

    I felt a lot of need to have online contact with other online communities, mainly from the other side of the planet, people with projects mainly in WordPress, my passion.

    Shakir, your comment was very important to me, I was even afraid to comment on blogs. It’s such a comforting stimulus, it gives me a lot of energy to continue.

    Thank you very much to all,
