Hey guys!! This time I am here with another blogging experience of mine as a beginner. If you have read my blog – “Blogging for Beginners” then u will understand what kind of blogging experience I am talking about. Anyways if you haven’t read that one just go through this one.
Blogging is a very vast field and is growing day by day. Many people are connecting to it may be because of the fascination a person have of being a blogger or many even choose it as a profession for themselves. But when one enters into the world of blogging it seems a challenging task specially to the people who are not very technical or who don’t have good writing skills or content. So in order to get help many follow the renowned bloggers and read different articles to be good into it.
Well eventually, i did the same. The experience that I had with their blogs was quite good . I learnt a lot from them but their blogs on “Blogging tips for Beginners” is something which I feel little eccentric. More than a help for beginners it’s just a piece of another blog in their blogging site. According to the blogs that I read for beginners 90% of them says the following:-
1.) Be consistent in your work in order to keep your audience engaged.
2.) Don’t write daily but at least fix some days to publish your blogs like 1 in every week or in 3 days or according to your capacity.
3.) Write only when you feel strongly about the topic. Don’t only write just to write and publish another blog but write when you are fully cleared and strong opinionated about your topic.
4.) Work on the outlook of your website as it is just something which plays a major role in attracting your audience. So choose a good theme and work on it.
5.) Write something which relates your audience to it so that they can comment on it.
6.) Leave your writing piece with a question or something over which the reader can give his/her views. It is useful as you can then in turn explain your perspective to them. It is better than just replying thanx to everybody who commented.
7.) Appreciate the reader who has given time to understand the essence of your blog and have commented. So comment back or reply to them always.
8.) Don’t follow any rules and just do what you feel like.
So if one seriously go through these tips they are very contradictory to each other in a manner like:-
1.) One is advising you to be consistent but at the mean time asking you to write only when you feel strongly about something and don’t write just for adding more blogs to your website. So can anyone tell me how a person who have just started blogging can be consistent as well as strong content writer?
2.) A non-technical person who have just started a blog does not know how to go with all these technical things like themes, Adsense etc. So how can a non-technical person bring a beginner can deal with such things?
3.) Its good to write something which engages your audience and make them comment on your blog but one can only write about anything with his/her own perspective which everyone can’t find relatable.
4.) When a person have just explained his/her perspective about the topic in the blog then how he/she can reply explaining the same points again? Isn’t it rather good to appreciate them for their comments when u have nothing to say.
5.) If one should not follow or stick by to any rules then why these confusing and contradictory rules are even told to them?
Well, I know that all these rules depends on the situation and are to be used accordingly but still then aren’t they a mess in themselves?
According to me, one just have to go with it freely and do what he/she feels like. Go through the tips but rather than sticking to them innovate your own way as only you know who you are and how you can deal with things in order to write better or engage more audience. Just go with your own struggle and experience and use it to groom your blogs and to be a successful blogger.😊
Good luck for your journey and for mine too..👍👍
