Many pro bloggers advise you to write for your audience and search engines when you start blogging. This is correct. You should write for search engines and your readers but when you have a new blog, the best thing you can do for yourself and your blog is to write for yourself first. Once you start writing for yourself, everything else will fall into place. You will learn along the way what works for your blog niche, what type of blog posts bring in more traffic, and the types that bring in more engagement. The more you blog, you more you will understand what works and what doesn’t. That way you can twerk as you go along.
Blogging tip: Write for yourself first
I see many new bloggers falling into the trap of writing like every other blogger. They don’t put their own spin on their blog posts. Their blog looks like every other popular blog on their web and there is no originality. There is a very thin line between being getting inspiration and outright copying. I know it is tempting to be a little bit too inspired while grabbing blog post ideas from your favourite blogs, and this is where many newbie bloggers kill their blogging career before it even gets started.
It is so important to write for yourself first especially in your early blogging days. Your blog needs to bring something new and fresh to the web. That is the only way to stand out in the saturated world of blogging. Anything else, and you just get buried on the web. My advice is to play out with your creativity and discover where your strength is. It could be in your writing tone, photography, video content, or knowledge in a particular niche. There is always room to bring something new and fresh; writing for yourself first is the way to find out what that is.
When it comes to blogging for success, there is really no tip. One rule could work great for one blog and not for another. The only way to know which rule works for you is to play around with different blogging tips and be original. Practice makes perfect with blogging. The more you blog, the better you become, and the faster you learn. Experience is the best teacher, so if you are contemplating starting a blog, just start and learn as you go along. Good luck xx
