From September 26th, 2011 until now, Our blog sites already visited more than 6,000 times minus several numbers when We need to make any improvement, so basically visited number doesn’t include with Our own visit numbers especially when We add new thing, We need to check important thing, We modified some thing, We fixed wrong thing, etc. Yet, We never expect in 35 days it’s gonna be like this. Happy? Who don’t?
Are We already done Our blog sites successfully? Yes, if based on Our target count to reach 100 visit a day & if based on Our value due regard to create successful blog. Then in first month, We already did it, then continue to go further, successful value presentation from Our point view not merely based on how many visit that Our blog sites count but more than, did Our blog sites serves Our needs well? Is that difficult hitting aim to create successful blog? How much time until We could say that We are in exact position to create successful blog? So on and on with that list.
All of the answer never stop ending if We share it to anybody in this planet, actually. Nobody could match perfect 100% except if We just agree on some position with same standard footing value. Based on that, here Our hint to create successful blog. You guys free to give any comment & critics.
1. Prepare Our mindset. This is Our starting point. All successful & failure starts from Our head. Achievement, courage, joy, happiness, failure to launch, distraction, bewilderment, loss of identity, in minus or positive value could happen many times. The better You prepare mindset, The bigger Your possibility to create successful blog.
2. Be who We are. Stays original & put Our heart into it. Nobody loves impersonator because They just stay on other people effort but acknowledge for Their self effort. Rather pathetic, isn’t it? People only appreciates the value of authenticity. Put also value of innovative, passion, creativity, humor maybe depend on what We present, appreciation, be warm, be nice & finally mix all kind of that ingredients in unity. To create successful blog, We ought to present it as it likes there is no tomorrow.
3. Blog theme position. To make successful blog, We need to put Our position appropriately. Theme like Our identity classification, kind of what made Us who We are now. Starts from do Our best at, what We really good at, what We really like at, and more focus, focus & focus in that point. Take Your time & use it for Your advantage. Please don’t be careless and kind of hurry to decide.
4. Focus on content value. Why in the world people gonna come if Our blog isn’t give something that people needs for? Or want to take a look for? Or just curious for? There is thousands kind of what people search & looking for, in fact You could easily Google it, Yahoo it or Bing it. Put things good & useful in Your blog content if We want to create successful blog & They would fall for Us. They would come at Us again because We give something valuable, something They look & search for. Just do Our best at it if We want to create successful blog.
5. Interaction with visitor. Always, always & always treat all visitor no matter how tiny, simply, or might be how rudely They were with nice words. When They come even though only one times, They already contribute Our blog traffic. That precious value They give to Us. When They write comment, when They fill contact form, when They do poll & accept invitation, when some of them turn out to be Our loyal reader, etc. Please be nice to Our blog visitor if We want to create successful blog.
6. Creative design with simple presentation. We need to learn a lot from Apple Inc for this point. More than decade already prove Apple is one of top notch IT Company with creative design combined with great programming skill & finally smart distribution technique. To create successful blog, We need union cooperation when presenting to Our loyal reader or first time visitor with not just merely creative & catchy eyes design but also clarity & content simplicity. Good creative design not obscure Our message delivery because if it happens, Our creative design just fails. Yes, it fails, sorry to say that but doesn’t mean that We gonna afraid to try new things. To create successful blog, We need to stay balanced between this & that extreme position.
7. Bring to marketplace. If We really ready for it, after We made any improvement, blog development, to spend much time to fix what is lacking in Our blog sites, We ready to bring Our blog into marketplace. To create successful blog, We also need to share it via facebook, twitter, submit to sites directory services, promote via Our good friend/family/colleagues, simply said, Our social network asset. We gonna work in vain if We just made a good blog but don’t promote it. To create successful blog also means, They recognized Our hard work socially. Great traffic result would follow after that.
8. Home of Your Blog / Hosting Domain. This kind of stuff maybe a little bit too techie from some of Us but We need to face it. Please don’t freak out because if We could manage to face it, We would have something really invaluable in return. Ever have any wondering mind if some of loyal reader have any difficulty to reach Our blog sites? Or maybe some of Them go directly to Us & say how difficult They pronounce Our blog sites address? We need to learn new things like domain, address, CMS, add-on, plugin, themes, appearance or some like that. You don’t need to be some kind of internet expert to create successful blog while it really equips Us well to set & to create successful blog with some knowledge.
9. Choose Blog Vehicle. This point would be a huge topic to discuss with because in internet world, blog software has Their own uniqueness. The biggest user of particular blog software may not be Your reason to pick because as We already discuss it earlier, each of Us have own needs but instead of just going around, We need to try & act. WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, Blogger, Mambo Sever, Blogspot, Silverstripe, Frog CMS, PHP Nuke & other kind. Our input, try first 5 (five) of Our CMS list. If You still not satisfied, just keep looking until You fit in.
10. Think it, Feel it, Live it. Boredom is one of blogger biggest enemy. Especially after We start to get Our blog sites recognized by visitor or Our loyal reader. We need to find daily fresh ideas to share it & gotta tell that also a hard one to face. Variety between simple & comprehensive topic is a must to create successful blog because We need some kind of break after We create a serious topic. Law of 1 (one) thing does 10 (ten) times is better than 10 (ten) thing does 1 (one) times. Don’t force Ourselves in short time period, in fact just enjoy & feel it if We really plan to create successful blog.
Hope Our topic tips “To Create Successful Blog” would help. Good luck, blogger!!
