What skills required to become a Professional Blogger?

Blogging is not that much easy, which you are thinking. I have been in this field for the last two years. One thing which I have experienced is that if you want to become a professional Blogger, then you must have the hard working ability.

If you read some popular blog, then you see the income and traffic report on that blog. I would suggest you, instead of looking at income report you would see the hard work which makes that blog reach that milestone.

Some people see the revenue report, and they want to start their blog. Even they don’t know what they are doing, and they are not aware of blogging. After a few months once they realize that they are not getting enough traffic to blog, then they quit, which is the end of the blogging. What makes them leave blogging? Are they not capable of doing this?

Here I am telling you some points which you should remember before starting your blogging journey. I will explain some skills of professional bloggers, which makes them ProBlogger.

Find out your interest

This is the first thing which comes to my mind when people quit their blogging. Some people are not interested in blogging still they choose to blog as a career platform. Apparently, in future, they will stop their blog. Some people have excellent writing skill, but they don’t know where we can use it.

I would suggest you few things here. If you like blogging, then only go for it; otherwise, it’s just a waste of time. Don’t just copy others if others are doing blogging; it means you can also do it that myth. It varies from passion to passion, skills to skill.

People interested in blogging but they choose the niche which they are not aware of. They write the content because other people are writing it. In future, what will happen they will not involve in writing a post of current niche. I made the same mistake, so I will warn you don’t make the same error.

Be Consistent

Starting a blog is not a big deal, but to continue it without any barriers is hard. Some bloggers start their blog, but they are unable to update it regularly because of some constraints. If you want to make a career in blogging, then you must be consistent. I would suggest you write one post daily. If you see the popular blogs, they are always updating their old post and publish the new post as well.

Hardworking

ProBlogger doesn’t quit blogging at any cost because they know that they can make it. I have seen some famous bloggers, and they work 10-12 hours a day. If you have confidence in what you are doing, then no one can stop you other than you. People will talk to you some things but take it which are beneficial for you.

Writing skills

This is the must quality which you have before entering into the blogging field. I have read somewhere that you can change the world with your writing. I think you know the power of media they can change everything with a single article. Same here if you write content it will be visible to the world. By your writing, you can reach to the world.

Some ProBlogger hires quality writers for their blog to make their content useful. If your content is good, then only people will read your articles. Hiring a writer is the next step, but before that, I would suggest you write some articles on your own so that you will also get experience.

Coding skill

This is not a necessary skill for blogging, but if you want to customize your blog as per your requirements, then you must have it. If I want to customize my blog, then I hire a developer from Fiverr just for $5. I don’t have coding knowledge, and I update the content only.

If you have a piece of excellent coding knowledge, then you can take a WordPress project, and you will earn enough money from it. If you sign up for Fiverr, you can show you the expertise to make money.

What if you have a full-time job and You want to do blogging

This is a very most robust question which I heard from some bloggers. Before answering this question, I would like to say that don’t quit your full-time job unless you are not sure about the blogging profession.

If you think that your blog will earn more money than your full-time job still I suggest you don’t quit your job. Do blogging for some month see the results, and I am sure it will take at least one year to earn more money than your full-time job.

Analyze the earning reports every month and when your earning is constant then only go for the blogging profession.

Quitting a full-time job before creating the blog is a just bullshit decision. Some people have more confidence in their expertise, and even they succeed.

Availability

The time required for all things. Some people are very busy in their life as they don’t get much time. I would say that blogging is not for those individuals who are always working with their personal or corporate work. You need at least 3 hours a day to make your blog capable of being your profession.

Time is money don’t waste it

Patience to become a success

Blogging is not a one day process, not an even month. We need to work years to get success even more than that. We must have that much patience to bear ups and downs. The people who know well that they will have success one day they don’t quit blogging under any circumstances.

More you wait more you get better.

Reading skill

If you read more, then your knowledge will increase, and you will think differently than what others are thinking about writing content on your blog. More you write different content on your blog more you get visitors. People want to read various content which is not available easily.

I have sorted out above the quality of famous bloggers by my experience. I have made some mistake which I don’t want to do it. If possible, try to acquire skill and make your blog as attractive as Professional Blogger. The intention to write this post is to realize you that at what points you are lacking.
