As a part of blogging, it is most important for a blogger or newbie to know some important things before they start blogging or if they have started. Most of them are confused as to what type of blogging they should do or what type of information they should share. As the blog is a place to share any knowledge so newbies are most confused about the type of information they should share. Below you can find relevant answer for this.
Selection of Niche:
Niche, in simple words is basically a topic you chose for your blog. Lets suppose we take an example of Ui Tech Blog where we are committed to share information regarding blogs, earning, web languages, IT related news, etc. So, our niche may be said as Internet Technology. Which means we are sharing contents regarding Internet Technologies. So now it is up to what Niche you select but do remember always try to do what you can do. Never select a niche which you can not work on. It is the basic part of your online blogging business before you start it. Because a blog is most liked when it is well set, well in information about a particular topic. For example, if someone is visiting your blog and your blog is about health, but your blog also has articles on topics other than health, it will look awkward and your visitors will never know what actually your blog is about. So, it is the most important thing you should do at first.
Know Your Potential:
Always know your potential not only for blogging but for everything. A person should only do what he has the power to do. For instance, we see so many people in our life who try to copy others. They neither copy themselves nor get success like them because they do not have their own potential for doing anything. Always remember if you are going to copy others, blogging is not for you. So, for successful blogging business, you must know what you can do the most easily.
As far as I am concerned, I started so many blogs before Ui Tech Blog, but I never gave time them to manage and to work on them because I also tried to copy others blogs, but in the last I found that if I really want to do something, I should only focus on what I can do more and what best I can do. Therefore I started this blog because it is the only niche I love the most and of course I am leaning Web Languages too from Aptech, so it was the best idea for me. Now it is time for you to select the best niche for your blog.
Never Copy Content:
There may be so many sites providing the same niche as of your blog. Mostly what newbies do, they copy articles from various blogs with the addition and editing of some words and paste them on their blog. It is against the law as well as if the author of the original content comes to know, he may sue you. Although there are some certain conditions on which you can share any article from any site but with the proper link-back. For further information, read Creative Common 3.0
It is the most important element for both newbie as well as successful bloggers. You must update your blog regularly in order to maintain your search results and to be the most reliable source for your users online. At initial stage most of the newbies think that they are just wasting their time by just providing information to the internet users and getting nothing for it. Even at starting you may have put so many articles but you may not be getting your desired position in form of visits, money, position in search engines, etc. But you should not be worried about because blogging is a long term and a successful business online. It always takes a quite enough time at starting but later it becomes a long term business and your living.
Selection of Hot Topics:
There are always some certain and hot topics on every Major fields, for example if your niche is about Web Technology, hot topics may be how to do this and this, etc. Similarly if your niche is about current affairs, you may write articles on the current situation of your city/country, etc. Or if your niche is about health, you may write about weight loss and diets, etc. All it depends upon you. This technique not only gives a good rank in search engines as well as it maintains a quite good relation with your visitors, because they normally share your site with their friends that such site provides latest information. This will be also helpful to boast your blog traffic.
