  • Are you Enjoy Spending Time Surfing the Web?

Successful blogging requires a large time commitment and a great deal of sweat equity. Blogging doesn’t stop after you write and publish a blog post. Instead, it requires promotion, visiting and reading other blogs and websites, staying abreast of news and issues related to your blog topic, and more. Most of your blogging activities will occur online. To be a successful blogger, you must enjoy reading, researching, spending time on your computer and surfing the web.

  • Do You Like to Write?

Building a successful blog requires frequent, meaningful updates, responding to comments, leaving comments on other blogs and more. Each of those success factors requires writing. To be a successful blogger, you must be able to write prolifically.

  • Are you Passionate About Your Blog’s Topic?

Successful blogging requires that the blogger write frequent, meaningful posts about their blog’s topic to attract new readers, keep readers interested and keep readers coming back. If you are only slightly interested in your blog’s topic, it will be difficult to log in each day and come up with fresh, exciting posts and commentary.

  • Are you Comfortable Publicizing Your Thoughts,lifestyle and Ideas?

As a blogger, you will be publishing your opinions for the entire online community to read. While it is possible to remain anonymous and become a successful blogger, anonymous success is not the norm. To attract a large audience and appear legitimate in the blogosphere, more people have taken to sharing their identities and a fair amount of personal information online. As such, bloggers are exposed to negative responses to their posts, and sometimes those negative critiques can be hurtful. Successful bloggers can handle negative criticism.

  • Are you willing to learn more technology about blogging?

Blogging requires some knowledge of the Internet and simple software. If you are afraid of your computer, then blogging may not be for you. Alternatively, if you are willing to learn, you can blog. Blogging and the Internet as a whole are ever-changing, and even the most successful bloggers are constantly trying to learn new things to further enhance their blogs.

2 Good ways to interact with your vistiors

You now have the traffic you deserve. You should begin interacting with your
visitors. Create a regular theme such as: “Monday Money Tip” or “Picture of
the Week” which entices your readers to look forward to each week.
Give your readers advance notice about a product, service, or topic which you are going to review and then talk about later. If the President was scheduled to give a speech then in your blog you should state that you “will discuss the speech and give your opinion after the speech airs. Comments will be appreciated”.

Try to include non-advertising graphics, pictures, photos, and art in your blog entries. Not too much. Once a week is fine. Graphics can sometimes bring your blog to life. Of course, the content of the blog is the most important
aspect and you do not want to overshadow your content with graphics, but
displaying graphics can add a bit of spice to the blog.
Be choosy about your graphics and make sure they fit your entry topic. You
should add content with the graphic, at least a caption. Original graphics,
photos, pictures, and art is recommended.
Keep it Personal
A blog is most successful when it is kept personal. Try to include personal
experiences which relates to the topic of your blog entry. Stay away from the business style of writing. Write with a more personal style and use first-person narratives.Do not write any of your entries as sales letters, instead share product reviews and personal endeavors.The use of pictures and videos in websites/blogs is another new blogger must do. The reason is Google and other search engines really favor the use of videos and pictures in website/blogs. Video marketing is a hot item now is they are easy for you to produce yourself. The best videos are produced from your own recording effort and putting in your own keywords for great SEO. However, you can still use others videos in your posts if you need or want. There is nothing wrong with using other people’s videos as long as the video works with your niche.

How to find popular searched topics

Just use Google Zeitgeist or Yahoo! Buzz Index to find popular searched topics.
It does NOT matter if your topic is popular as long as there is a audience for
your topic and the topic is precisely focused then your blog should be
successful.
Anything can be considered a niche as long as it has a target audience no
matter how large or how small the audience is.
A blog about your cat can be a niche or a blog about the species of the cat
family can be a larger niche market, if there are people who are interested in
hearing about your cat or the species of the cat family, then you have a niche…
you can even choose to build your audience for a market which an audience
does not exist, but first you must build your blog.
