Step #1: Choose a niche for your blog that you are most comfortable with and that you enjoy writing about (To be a Blogger you must be a writer).

To become a Successful Blogger note the following:
  1. Be Patient, things don’t happen overnight it takes focus, consistency. Don’t be in a hurry to get rich.
  2. Be a great writer, your writing skills will be put to test when you start blogging as your audience will opt out when they consistently read grammatically unstable contents.
  3. Be consistent, focused and ready to learn. Don’t try to assume you know it all, ask those who have been there before and learn from them.
  4. Be Diligent and Hardworking. Blogging may involve you doing some extra research, extra assignments or maybe working into the night. Be ready to pay the price to be a successful blogger.
  5. Be Creative don’t do copy and paste. Copying and pasting destroys your chances of ranking well on search engines and you may end up getting to nobody and failing as a blogger. This is why many people get into blogging and abandon it after few months because they are not creative, they want to just copy and paste.

So what are you waiting for….
