People started blogging in the early Y2K’s. That time it was a new identity to feature themselves as a blogger and spend their time in blogging. Since then the nature of Blogging has changed a lot. At present, blogging can be a full time business and most bloggers actually just love to do it. Blogging normally requires creating lots of content, so if you can find some ways to create that content at a more perfect pace it will make your job productive and deem yourself as a professional blogger.
How to Become a Productive and Professional Blogger
Here are 6 action items you can follow to be a professional blogger:
1. Find the Right Ideas
You need to be innovative and find great ideas to make your blog popular. Some people success by throwing information to the people that they are looking for, some teach people how to success in blogging, some show people how to make money online etc. You need to discover your inner-idea and plan it to progress and build your reputation as a professional blogger.
2. Focus on Article
When you are writing an article, concentrate on that. Sometimes it may be tempting to turn back and forward as different ideas pop up into the head that actually makes the final product take longer as well as reducing the good quality at the same time.
3. Check each Article before Publishing
Always proofread the article before you hit ‘Publish’. When you can spend 20, 30, 40 minutes or even hour to write a single article, why cannot you spend 5 minutes to proofread it? Many professional bloggers tend to avoid this most of the time due to time constraint but you can identify typo, grammatical errors, sentence errors and many more by simply cross-checking your article.
4. Make SEO Checklist for Pre-Article Publication
What is the benefit of adding articles in your blog if you cannot rank in higher in search engines? You should define your primary keyword, target it and optimize it for every blog post including optimize your images as well. You can use on-page SEO tools like SeoScribe, SeoPressor or EasyWpSEO (the one which I use regularly) plugin which will tell you where you need to optimize your current article.
5. Make a Checklist for Post-Article Publication
If you want to submit your articles to different Social bookmarking sites or Email distribution lists then make a list of tasks that you should complete after an article is published. You can also use the Social Share tool button below or sidebar of your post and can share it to different Social Networking Sites.
6. Repeat the Process
The final thing you need to do is to write article, publish it and bookmark it and repeat the process again and again. If you believe that after building backlinks you cannot find enough time to write every post, then you can also outsource the articles from freelancing sites. Many professional blogger do this due to time constraint and don’t hesitate yourself to do so if you are really in lack of time! But make sure to proofread them once before you publish them to your site. If your contents are not user-friendly people will not likely to read it.
Blogging is not a get rich quick scheme and requires a considerable amount of time to build skill, reputation and a loyal reader base. You need to be productive, professional, enthusiastic and dedicated person to build yourself as a professional blogger.
