What skills required to become a Professional Blogger?

Hello Friends,

I hope you are interested in starting a blog.

If you think blogging is EASY then you are totally wrong.

I will elaborate on the above statement

  1. Starting a blog is EASY.
  2. Driving traffic to your blog is DIFFICULT.
  3. If you succeed to the second point then earning money from your blog is EASY.

I have been blogging since 2014, one thing I experienced if you want to become a successful blogger, then you must have to follow some blogging rules and must have some skills. Be patient, I will discuss all the skills in this article.

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.

I saw some newbie bloggers see the income report of successful bloggers, 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 quit blogging? Were 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 successful blogger.

Interest in blogging

Ask a blogger who quit blogging about their interest. You will get a negative answer. Those who quit blogging they didn’t have interest in it. Interest is the first thing which comes to my mind when people quit their blogging.

Do you have interest in blogging? if YES then start a blog and follow your passion.

I will make this easy for you. If you are interested in blogging then go for it otherwise, it’s just a waste of time. It is not like if others are doing and earning money from blog then we can. It varies from passion to passion, skills to skill.

Be Consistent

Starting a blog is not a big deal, but to continue it without any STOP is hard. Some bloggers start their blog, but they are unable to update it regularly because of some constraints.

Consistancy is the key of SUCCESS in blogging

If you want to become a successful blogger, then you must be consistent. I would suggest you write at least one post weekly and if you don’t have anything to write then update the old post. If you see the popular bloggers, they always update their blog.

Hardworking

Successful bloggers don’t quit blogging at any cost because they know that they can make it. I have seen some bloggers who work 10-12 hours a day. If you have confidence in what you are doing, then no one can stop you other than you.

You must be hardworking in your work, doesn’t matter what it is. If you continuously work on it, you will get your destination.

Writing skills

Writing is the first requirement in blogging. A good writer can attract readers, can engage readers on your blog or can do anything.

I think you know the power of media they can change everything with a single article. If you write content on your blog it will be visible to the entire world.

Some bloggers hire quality writers for the blog. If your content is good, then only people will read your articles. Hiring a writer is the next step, before that, I would suggest you write some articles on your own so that you will also get exposure in blogging and confidence as well.

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 write and 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.

Full-time job vs blogging

This is a frequently asked question which I read everywhere. 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 is earning 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 stable then only go for blogging.

Availability

The time required for all things. Some people are very busy in their life. I would say that blogging is not for those individuals who are always working with their personal or corporate work. You need enough time to make your blog capable of making you, successful blogger.

Time is money don’t waste it

Patience

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.
