As strange as it seems it appears that the same 3 factors that influence your blog success also contribute to your failure as well! There are certain requirements that must be met in the development and maintenance of a blogging platform in order for it to become popular. The fact is that the most popular blogs have all maintain their commitment towards fulfilling these requirements but not everybody is up to the challenge! It is these 'challenges' that cause many to quit however to develop into a good blogger, one who has a popular site, it is more a matter of patience and resolve, and not talent!
Here are the 3 common factors that can either be the keys to success for your blogging platform or the obstacles that lead to your failure!
Any good blogger recognizes the importance of maintaining a certain level of quality on their site for their readers. After all the blogging platform is there for the entertainment of the people who visit it otherwise the site would failure to exist! Over time both the site administration and those who frequent the blog come to know and better understand one another making content creation a little easier. What is offered readers is normally a mixture of insight, teaching, humor and even industry updating.
Marketing always plays a role in the development of the most popular blogs and is the best way to accelerate its popularity. Gaining and maintaining exposure is something the site administrator should always take measures in doing to keep fresh traffic flowing to the platform itself. Make no mistake this will be an ongoing process and can be achieved through various marketing strategies. Simply choose a few that work best with your skill set, budget and time availability! For those that are challenged by the time required or simply a lack of motivation and/or resolve this will be an obstacle they will need to overcome!
Marketing, content creation and even interacting with visitors by responding to comments left needs to be done consistently. Especially in the early developmental stages this consistency is important to both attract and retain traffic to your blogging platform. Consider it much like rolling something uphill in terms of once you stop, whatever it is you are rolling to the top will simply roll back down. Most popular blogs realize that their readers need to know what to expect. If your are not consistent with your efforts they will go elsewhere thereby you will be wasting your previous efforts!
Ironically your blog success is dependent upon the same 3 factors that can also lead to your failure as the discussion above reveals. Starting your own blogging platform is normally easy enough but to eventually become one of the most popular blogs in your niche takes time, effort and consistency! It is important to note however that in order to develop into a good blogger it requires more discipline than it does talent. This is to simply say anybody can have a successful blogging platform as long as they have the willingness to be patient and invest their efforts consistently! Difficulty or talent level however should NOT be considered obstacles!
