Have you ever wondered what it takes to have a successful blog? Have you stood by and watched others increase their site’s exposure and success within the blogger-sphere?
Welp… here’s some help from a successful business man… below you will find an infographic created by Mark Scheafer of BusinessesGrow.com for what he calls 10 Maxims for successful blogging.
10 Fundamentals for Successful Blogging
1. Dig Deep Down and Tell Your Story
The Internet is littered with useless and uninspiring information. Be different… stand out from the crowd and tell your unique story that nobody has heard before, which leads me to the next fundamental…
2. Have the Courage to Just Do It
It takes bravery to put yourself out there to meet with possible criticism for whatever you put into cyberspace. Stand your ground and believe in what you stand for.
3. Don’t Confuse Your Readers
Find what you are good at and what you would like to share with the world then go out and do it. Educate yourself and become a leader in the blogging community for your niche.
4. Give Love to Your Readers
When someone takes the time to socially participate by leaving a comment to your writing brilliance, be sure to acknowledge and comment back.

5. BE POSITIVE
Nobody likes a sourpuss or a person that does nothing but criticize others. Yes, negative blog posts can be controversial and considered Link Bait (another story) bringing all sorts of traffic, but dig deep and discover what you are all about. Is this the type of person you want people to see you as?
The infographic below states it pretty well… “Negative blog posts are like a car wreck.” it may raise a person’s curiosity to see what it’s all about, but it’s not something a person wants to see all the time.
6. Stay Focused – Stay Centered
I like to say “Never, Never, Never Give Up!”… all this means is that you will never succeed if you quit. Even if your blog posts are being criticized, all you can do is learn from it and try to do better the next time.
7. Create Content that is R-I-T-E
Relevant, Interesting, Timely and Entertaining. Mark makes a good point… being boring can be the death of a blog.
To add… I believe that the layout of your site can be a turn-off to many… if your blog posts are filled with nothing but text without an image or two, plus your paragraphs or sentences are long-winded, this can add to the dissatisfaction.
Add images for visual stimulation and break your paragraphs into smaller, easy to follow sentences.
8. Don’t Waste People’s Time
You may have heard the old saying “Tell them what you’re going to tell them. Then tell them. And then tell them what you told them.”
Well… to break this down a little further, make sure your headline tells a story about what your blog post is all about. Then, make sure you encourage them to continue by giving them a taste of what they are about to read by placing information about the blog post within the first few sentences.

9. Build Your Network
The most effective way to be successful with blogging is to join social media networking sites and communities; and as the infographic states, “Share and Comment Often.”
Here is a great article to learn the pathetic statistics and learn how we can better ourselves through networking and Social Participation!
10. Just Start Blogging
Just get started! Procrastination is a detriment to blogging. The hardest part is the beginning stages of blogging, wondering if you are doing it right, etc.
Don’t worry about everything being just perfect, just get out there and start blogging… the only way to learn is by doing it.
