What would you say has allowed you to be successful at blogging?
Did you notice? I have officially moved to Tuesdays. Instead of posting every Monday, you will now find me on Tuesdays. Make sure to come back every Tuesday for Blogging Tips and Tricks here at R & R Web Design LLC.
I am so blessed. I have some of the greatest bloggers as readers. Yes, I’m talking to you, all of you! I LOVE how you all take the time to offer great advice and input.
So, I would like to know what you think.
If you could put into words the one big thing that has made you successful at blogging, what would you say it is?
Is it your ability to produce great content? Or, how you’re posting every day? Do you have witty headlines or do you have great conversations in your comments?
There is SO MUCH information out there that claims can make you a great blogger, but, I have the best resources right here.
While you are considering what makes you a successful blogger, let me share with you a little research I did.
If you missed the series on How to Write the Perfect Headline Every Time, please check it out. Copyblogger reported that 8 of out 10 people will see your headline but out 2 out of 10 will read it. Is a great headline what we need to be successful at blogging?
Have you ever heard of Social Triggers? Well, the author posts 2.7 times a month and has subscribers in the hundreds of thousands. What does he say is the key, his great content? He doesn’t post to post and admits that he loses out of the SEO factor, but he says his content is so good that his readers become lifelong readers.
Easy To Read Factor
How many blog readers as skimmers? I know that I have a huge tendency to be a skimmer. Is it your ability to write easy to read articles that makes you successful?
Here Is What I Think
The reason why I love reading blogs is that I love to see the heart of the author. I love reading an article and somehow feeling like I just had a good cup of coffee with the author. I like to have just enough vulnerability and just enough personality. When you add in great content, a witty headline and the easy to read factor, you may just have the most successful article ever written.
I haven’t even touched the SEO or the marketing. See what I mean about SO MUCH information out there?

Now, more importantly, what do you think? What makes a blog successful?
