I often get asked by new bloggers’ Is blogging a Good Career’ My answer is always YES! Everyone wants to become a successful blogger and earn some money.
When the Internet is becoming the most popular platform to earn a lot of money, blogging is one of them. It could be the most popular way to earn money online.
Being a blogger is very easy, you just have to start your blog and start writing on it. But! How to be a successful blogger? How to start blogging as a Career or business?
To be honest, being a successful blogger is very hard work compared to starting a blog. You might have heard, that successful bloggers are earning thousands of dollars a month, but not all.
To start blogging as a career you must work hard day and night and after a long struggle, you may become a successful blogger and can earn thousands of money.
Am I right or wrong? Let me know in the comment, below?
However, Do you Blog? Maybe you are good at technology, Science, Maths, fashion, food, etc. You can start your blog as a hobby and passion.
But did you know that you can start blogging as a career also?
Read the post to the end, and I will show you how to become a successful blogger. Are you ready to know the secret, how to turn your blog into a profitable business!
Blogging as a Career or Becoming a Successful Blogger
If you thrive to become a successful blogger, these are the qualities you must have.
With these following qualities, anyone can become a successful blogger and make money off blogging.
Let’s see what are they?
1: Willing to learn
Learning is the key to any business. Before starting any type of work, any kind of business you must know about it. If you don’t what your business is all about you won’t grow.
For example, If I told you about myself, before starting my dream blog Passive Blogger I would struggle day and night for around six months to get knowledge about How to blog?
Even I Didn’t jump Passive Blogger before I get knowledge about blogging. I’ve explored and made 2 blogs, one failed by the way and another got successful.
And after 2 years later I built Passive Blogger to learn more about blogging and now I teach people about blogging from my experiences.
However, learning and experimenting with things make you smart.
For example, What is your niche? What types of strategies have you used to get your blog noticed on the web? How do you organize and plan your content?
There are so many things you need to learn, for me I didn’t know how to write SEO friendly article, I couldn’t write more than 500 words in a day.
I was the worst blog writer but I learned and improve my content quality. Now I can easily write up to 1500 words of SEO-friendly articles.
The same things you should keep in mind, no matter what’s the lacking you have, make sure to improve yourself daily.
You might hear that “Content is the King “, but what type of content is the king.
All content is not the king, quality content is the king. So, quality content matters not quantity.
Quality writing is the very first thing that helps you to get success in blogging.
If you are good at writing you can easily beat other competitors. If you are not good at blog writing, practice daily.
Also, get some knowledge about your niche, so that you can write well on your topics.
Make it a habit to write a minimum of more than 1000 words on a topic. Writing only on those topics in which you are an expert or interested.
For example, you have a piece of the vast knowledge of WordPress so you can write content in the WordPress niche.
On the other hand, If you are best at making food so you can publish recipes in your blog post.
And if you have no more skills in writing, you are slow in creating content so I recommend you to start from the beginning.
3. Guest Posts
You can unleash your potential by writing guest posts for others. Now another question may be in your mind what is Guest Post?
Guest post means writing and publishing content on someone else’s website or blog.
The first rule of being a good guest:
- Link to the post from my blog
- Promote it on Twitter (several times)
- Share it on Facebook
- Thank the person
- Respond to comments, on the post
Benefits of Guest Posts:
The first benefit as I told you that guest postings will unleash your writing skills.
Now the question may be in mind that, Is there are any other benefits of doing Guest Posts!
Yes, of course, there are a lot of benefits;
- When you are a beginner and start blogging so you need to create your backlinks. Guest post is one of the best ways to get quality backlinks.
- You can bring traffic to your site/blog.
- Create your audience.
There are also a lot of benefits of publishing a guest post.
4: Diversify Your Skills
Make your skills different from other people. Don’t copy the content of others. Try taking your own photos instead of using Creative Commons-licensed images.
Think why other blogs got succeed? Because they use highly graphic images, quality content, and an attractive layout.
Try to be different from others.
5: Good Communicator
If you want to become a successful blogger, you need to be good at communication. Some peoples think that the work of a blogger is to write only the article but they are wrong. The work will start after publishing the post.
If you have an audience, and you are a good communicator so definitely you can become a successful blogger. The main work starts after the completion of the article.
If you are a beginner, you need to promote it. And you need good communication skills for this. Improve your communication skills if you want to become a successful blogger.
6: Work Hard
You have to work hard day and night. Never feel sadness, always be happy with your work and with your passion.
Always try to get something new. Tell people something interesting and attract them towards yourself.
Be active on social platforms, and answer all questions asked by people.
7: Build Your Audience
Hmm! Did you know that? Building your audience is more important than getting traffic. Don’t miss out on a single visitor, attract all to yourself.
You can also promote your group, profile, or page on Instagram and Facebook to get more audience
8: To be Different
Dare to be different from others if someone wrote a post about a product then write an interview about it.
If someone is using five images in his article you use more than five and also add audio, and if he or she adds audio then add a video about it.
Try to clear all points about that topic, write in detail and proper way.
9: Be Honest
Always be honest. Teach others only the truth, and share your experience and mistakes with others.
Never tell a lie, always give quality content to your audience. This will help you to be a successful blogger.
10: Never Make This Mistake
What do many bloggers do wrong? Many people start their blogs by seeing other bloggers, that they are generating so much revenue so why I can’t?
That’s very good not wrong! But you have to wait at least half a year or maybe a year.
You can’t’ become rich in one night or in a week, you must have to learn all things properly.
If I told you about myself, I spend my half-year just learning and practicing blogging. Then I start my dream blog Passive Blogger.
Once you have these qualities no one can stop you to start blogging as a career.
These are the qualities you should have if you want to become a successful blogger. As I said earlier anyone can become a blogger if he has these qualities.

Is Blogging a Good Profession?
Undoubtedly, blogging is a good profession for those who want boss free life. However, it is not as easy as you think, and the success rate is just 2% – 3%.
Most newbie bloggers think that blogging is some get-rich-quick scheme. But that’s not true, you need a lot of patience and hard work before you start generating any revenue.
But to be honest, a blog can be a profitable online business. On average for a blogger in the United States is around $25,869 per year.
It has lots of potentials to earn income passively. That’s why nowadays people take blogging to be a full-time career.
But you can also take blogging part-time like me. As I’m a student and have lots of academic staff still I’m making a good income from blogging.
But interestingly blogging is can be a full-time career, and, with high chances, you can earn more income from the blog than your current salary.
The good news is that starting up a blog is risk-free and less investment. So if you want to start a blog I would be happy to interact with you.
