Top 5 strategies to concentrate for bloggers in 2021
Content is still the King
During the early ages of the internet, there was blogging boom accompanies by the WordPress platform. Lots of blogging websites came into existence and they were earning a good amount of income. And, that was not right. Blogs with weak contents were also getting good traffic. Google came up the solution and devalued bad content.
You cannot run anywhere with bad content. Bad content has lots of interpretation, but the universal definition goes like this, “any content, which does not provide information and produce value to the readers is termed as bad content”. Also, stuffing information also doesn’t work and Google has made sure that amazing content always wins the race to the top of the Google rankings.
Learn to Write 6000 Words a day
I am not going to press the value of fast writing, but it is evident that fast writing can bring a lot of success to your door.. In current world, there are half chances that you will be fall apart by your slow speed. Always remember, that there are millions of bloggers writing engaging content all over the world. And, if you are stuck with an amazing idea then there is a high probability that someone else, with an equal level of expertise, has also thought about it and is planning to publish it soon.
Also, a blogger work is not only to write about different topics. They have to engage in other blogging community and constantly chip your valuable offerings and thoughts. That will sum up to 1000 words daily commenting on other blogs and your own blog addressing readers from different demographics. And, when I point the value of commenting and engaging in other communities, there is no fact denying that for small bloggers it is necessary to engage from the point of marketing and getting their articles across the community.
Automation is going to take over the world, sooner or later. And, it can cause chaos for some and victory for many or vice-versa. A lot of bloggers may not agree with me on this point, but using automated grammar check tools are the right way to approach the current market trends.
No one likes writing mistakes and no one is going to read your article if it is full of mistakes that are easily catchable. Native English speaker can find mistakes in the blink of an eye. And that does not mean that if you are writing for a non-native audience, you have the luxury of making mistakes.
Automation tools like “Grammarly” is highly recommended from my side. Paying for the service is completely different thing and is on personal choice rather than an impulsive buy. I, myself, use Grammarly free edition and extract as much help from the system, as I can. The tool makes sure that I don’t make silly grammatical mistakes and hints me on more severe mistakes in my writings.
Never forget you are unique
Every writer or blogger on the earth is a unique person and has his own way of internalizing and externalizing any information. The art of writing is a creative field, and you will not find two bloggers whose tone of writing and engaging audience are same.
Practice more of the uniqueness, and this strategy is going to stay with you almost all your remaining revolutions around the sun.
