How to Stand out as a Blogger

How to Stand out as a Blogger

It seems that virtually everybody today is running a blog, whether they have something to say or not. The share of those who achieve any degree of success in this enterprise, however, is much smaller. So what differentiates famous bloggers from those who are forever doomed to trail along in the back? How does one join the leaders? Let us take a look at some ways.

1. Awesome Content

When all is said and done, there is no other way around it. To become a famous blogger, you simply have to offer your readers something they won’t find anywhere else – and make them love it, share it, bring you new visitors just to take a look at that awesome article you’ve written. If you have nothing to offer but rearranged content from other sources, you will never achieve much in this industry.

2. Guest Posting

Guest posting has been a popular element of blogger outreach activities for a long time; however, it underwent serious alterations over the last few years due to changes in Google policies. Nevertheless, it remains as important a method of growing readership, increasing visibility and establishing contacts in the industry as ever. You, however, should take into account the fact that it is very time- and effort-intensive activity oriented towards long-term results. Don’t expect it to start working overnight, give it time to hit stride.

3. Definite Purpose

Just like in any other business, the best way to achieve success in blogging is to choose a niche (a purpose, an idea), stick to it and get really good at it. Fuzzy, vague blogs about everything and nothing in particular very rarely get considerable readership – and if they do, it is usually because they have something else unique to offer, like unusual persona of the author.

4. Using Your Personal Strengths

When you choose a niche to cover, don’t let your decision be influenced by popularity of the subject or potential readership. You should be genuinely interested in your chosen field, you should have experience in it you can share with others, you should be able to generate content about it without forcing yourself to do so.

5. Using Social Media

No matter how outstanding your content is, you won’t go far without leveraging social media. Include buttons of as many relevant social media on your blog as you can think of: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Reddit, Google+, whatever you may think of – any and all of them can make a priceless contribution to increasing your blog’s visibility and bringing you new subscribers.

6. Being Useful

Fascinating isn’t everything ideal content should be. There are many other places on the Internet where people can spend time amusing themselves. The best way to tie them to you and your blog is to be useful, solve their problems with your content, make it actionable. If you want to make your readers loyal, bring them direct benefits.

7. Learning SEO

SEO is too complicated a subject to learn all its intricacies, and too unstable to constantly keep ahead of the game without dedicating all your time to it. However, learning the basics is a must – and for the rest you can hire a specialist to keep an eye on technical side of things or consult you about them.

Blogging may be an interesting, fun and fascinating pastime, and it can be a lucrative business. If you want it to be both, you should make special efforts to move into this direction. We hope our tips will help you both to decide whether you want to try it out and, if you do, how you should go about doing so.

How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

As it appears, the human mind is not capable of not thinking, at least on the subconscious level. Our mind is always occupied by thoughts, whether we want to or not, and they influence our every action.

When we were still children, our thoughts seemed to be purely positive. Have you ever been around a 4-year old who doesn’t like a painting he or she drew? I haven’t. Instead, I see glee, exciting and pride in children’s eyes. But as the years go by, we clutter our mind with doubts, fears and self-deprecating thoughts.

Just imagine then, how much we limit ourselves in every aspect of our lives if we give negative thoughts too much power!

We’ll never go after that job we’ve always wanted because our nay-saying thoughts make us doubt our abilities.

We’ll never ask that person we like out on a date because we always think we’re not good enough.

We’ll never risk quitting our job in order to pursue the life and the work of our dreams because we can’t get over our mental barrier that insists we’re too weak, too unimportant and too dumb.

We’ll never lose those pounds that risk our health because we believe we’re not capable of pushing our limits.

And we’ll never be able to fully see our inner potential because we simply don’t dare to question the voices in our head…

But enough is enough! It’s time to stop these limiting beliefs and come to a place of sanity, love and excitement about life, work and ourselves.

So, how can we tap into the power of positivity?

“Happiness cannot come from without, it comes from within.” – Helen Keller

It’s not as hard as it may seem; you just have to practice, practice, practice. Here are 4 simple yet powerful ideas on how you can get started.

1. Learn to substitute every negative thought with a positive one.

Every time a negative thought crawls into your mind, replace it with a positive thought. It’s just like someone writes a phrase you don’t like on a blackboard and then you get up, erase it and write something much more to your liking.

Just take a look at these 10 Positive Affirmations for Success that will Change your Life.

2. See the positive side of every situation, even when you are surrounded by pure negativity.

This one is a bit harder to put into practice, which does not mean it’s impossible.

You can find positivity in everything by mentally holding on to something positive, whether this be family, friends, your faith, nature, someone’s sparkling eyes or whatever other glimmer of beauty.

If you seek it, you will find it.

3. At least once a day, take a moment and think of 5 things you are grateful for.

This will lighten your mood and give you some perspective of what really is important in life and how many blessings surround you already.

Here’re 60 Things To Be Thankful For In Life that can inspire you.

4. Change the mental images you allow to enter your mind.

How you see yourself and your surroundings make a huge difference to your thinking.

Instead of dwelling on dark, negative thoughts, consciously build and focus on positive, light and colorful images, thoughts and situations in your mind a few times a day.

Learn from this article how to change your mental images: How to Think Positive and Eliminate Negative Thoughts

If you are persistent and keep on working on yourself, your mind will automatically reject its negative thoughts and welcome the positive ones.

And remember:

You are (or will become) what you think you are.

This is reasonable enough to be proactive about whatever is going on in your head.
