If you ask me, every blogger both new and old wants or desires a stress-free blogging. Bloggers whose blogs have grown from nothing to something have prices which they paid to be able to be where they are today, a reason why they are believed to be authorities in their field.
While keeping in mind the question which this article begs, there is need to ask yourself these questions:
1. What does my blog stand for?
2. How hungry is the niche I am writing? (What actually am I writing about?)
3. Who are my audience?
4. What am I missing?
Answering these questions will put you on the right track as to knowing the secrets of stress-free blogging. I am going to be writing briefly on each of these questions and will be expecting your opinions in comments on any of them that strike your attention the most.
Q1: What does my blog stand for?
There are millions of blogs out there on the internet with diverse topics and niches. Even as you read this article, a blog is being created, but one question I would like to ask you is – does your blog have what it stands for or is just one of those blogs created to fill the gap on the internet? Answer this question and you will be sure to know your stand in stress-free blogging.
Q2: How hungry is the niche I am writing?
This is where professional bloggers leave a mark. Simply put, the gap between successful bloggers and those struggling to make a name is the niche which they have chosen. A hungry man will always do what it takes to eat and get satisfied. Same thing goes to people who are hungry for an information or product, they will go to the extent of checking out virtually all the assorted food (contents) in your kitchen (your blog) and would want to come back if they were satisfied.
Knowing the secrets of stress-free blogging is discovering a hungry niche, and feeding it with contents of great value. It doesn’t matter how long it takes you to come up with an article because one article you eventually publish sells like hell simply because people are already starving waiting for your food! How hungry is the niche you are writing? A self assessment of this question will put you on track!
Q3: Who are my audience?
This question is not far from Q2. From discovering a hungry niche you get to know who your audiences are, and knowing who your clients/readers are gives you an edge over your competitors because it draws you closer to them as well keeping to your business. The beauty of knowing your target audience is that it keeps you in constant motion as to growing your presence online. Just as a baking company bakes and keeps tabs on their customers or targeted consumers, a blogger hoping to experience a stress-free blogging should write keeping his audience in mind.
Q4: What am I missing?
Among all the questions asked above, this is the one I always ask myself. There must be something which you are missing. You cannot be 100% right all the time, believe me even ProBloggers have one or two things they miss out. You may be writing a good blog, healthy enough to drive you the needed traffic, but may still be missing out a thing. The mindset is for you to always ask yourself what is meant to be there that is not there. Once you have this attitude, you will keep experiencing what it feels like to run a stress-free blog.
