5 Must Haves For Bloggers

It is awesome to have a huge follower list on your blog. The big question: HOW? Before that, what makes a blog a good one- or even better, a great one? One essential factor is traffic. The visitors or e-traffic a blog generates go a long way in determining if it cuts. The secret, then, is that the reader is the king, and you do all to get him to your blog, make him hop around reading posts aplenty, and do all to please him.


Now we come to the million-dollar question: how exactly is all this to be done?

For that, let’s see it all from the reader’s perspective to decide what needs to be done to attract and sustain readers to a blog. To the reader, a blogger or blog-writer is one person he appreciates for his knowledge in a given field. Once impressed by a blog, the reader shows his interest by accessing it repeatedly.
To ensure your blog impresses its readers, you’ll need to concentrate solely on your readers. Everything and anything you put up on your blog must be with a steady eye on the readers’ needs and interests. Forget about SEO; forget about monetizing your blog. These are not the things that’ll make your blog popular. Your readers will. Concentrate on them. And them alone.

Here are five essentials you’ll need to take care of to make your blog reader-oriented and set it on its way to being a successful blog.


A structured and organized blog hugely impresses a reader. Have a decent template that is properly categorized and easy to navigate. Try having a related posts section at the end of each post where readers can access many articles on a similar topic. Do not clutter your blog with a million widgets and gadgets. Your reader does not need them, so your blog mustn’t have them either. Could you keep it simple, keep it neat?

Why do people visit your blog? To read. Come up with content that is sure to impress your readers, content that they’ll repeatedly come to read and re-read. You need to write unique and massively useful posts for your readers. No matter how good your vocabulary is, there is no real need to showcase it all in your blog. Use simple and easy-to-understand language. Make lists, use images, and format posts/articles so that it is easy for your reader to skim through the post before he gets down to reading it in detail. Bold, italicize, and underline text that needs to stand out amidst the rest. Use a conversational and informal tone. Write as if you’re speaking to your reader. Articles/ posts you write this way will be enormously easy to read. Your readers will also not be taxed when reading them, so they’ll look for more to read on your blog. Guess what this means: yup, they’ll spend more time on your blog and, in all probability, will keep a tab on all new things you come up with. Above all, be original. Develop your style of writing and use it always. Never try to copy another’s style and language. You’ll be unique only when you are yourself.

You’ve chosen a simple, neat template and created quality content. What next, then? Well, write eye-grabbing headlines. For every post you make, have a good, attention-grabbing headline. A headline that reads Speak Well or Speak With Lots of Confidence will never get as many readers as Speak Like a Leader In 6 Easy Steps. The point is simple: every great post you develop needs a great headline to attract readers. Some headlines that you could use include:

There is no quick and easy way to make your blog suddenly successful. It doesn’t happen overnight, that’s for sure. But there are methods you can adopt to make it successful quicker than most others. One such way is to post some of your best content as articles on article directories. Readers will not need to come directly to your blog to find content. Your blog’s content can be available on various websites that attract huge amounts of traffic daily. Readers who frequent these can then access your posts, too. What’s best is that you get to link to your web page or blog and thereby generate quality traffic.

Blog regularly. You’ll need to post regularly to build and maintain a good reader base for your blog. Readers must get to read something fresh and good each time they visit your blog. If you’ve just started blogging, you must post fairly quickly and have content for readers visiting your blog. If you don’t, then whatever readers you’ve managed to get to your blog will quietly disappear for lack of fresh content. If you cannot develop quality content often, get a few friends or acquaintances to write guest posts for your blog. You could be good with computers while one of your friends could be awesome with current affairs. This means many posts are authored by different individuals and on various topics. Get onboard as many people as you can. Your readers will be treated to a host of reading material, which can mean only one thing: they’ll, sooner rather than later, get addicted to your blog!
