The Secret of Writing a Really Good Blog

Guest post by Wolfgang Bloomfield

The secret of a good blog lies in its content. It is the content and the key words that time and again attract potential customers. Good blog content literally means putting something different on every blog.

Really good blog content is not impulsive; it is content that has been thought out, and properly researched. You cannot treat the blog as an experiment and then expect it to work for you. The whole idea is to mean business, and to make your presence felt online, as well as to make money from it eventually, so therefore you have to ensure it performs the way you want it to.

The Importance of an attention grabbing title

If you want to make some money from your blog, you must get the attention of your potential audience, so you should not underestimate the power of an attention grabbing title. The title has to reach out and grab your target audience in order for you to make money.

The title of your blog needs to make an immediate impact on the reader, particularly if you are hoping to get free traffic from the search engines and social bookmarking sites; also you will have to do some keyword research to find out what search terms people are tapping into their computers.

It is also a good idea to ask family and friends for ideas on what people type in when they are searching for a particular product, and ask them for their honest opinion. A well written blog post can make all the difference in the world, as to whether you will be successful or not, especially if you are hoping to make a full time income out of your efforts.

A good post on your blog is about being original with your content, but mainly be yourself speak your mind, say what you think and don't just go along with what everybody else is saying. Develop your own style, and this will set you apart from others and then hopefully you will get a loyal following that will from time to time spend money with you. It is also important to include your photo on the blog. People will feel like they know you, this helps to build trust and people will spend money with people whom they can trust.

Build your business steadily

Don´t rush into building too many blogs at once. This is where many people make the mistake of trying to do too much.  Nothing gets completed, and you will end up with the impossible job of keeping up with it all. It is better to have one good blog with a really good content, and you will start to earn some money. However, remember Rome wasn't built in a day.  It does take time, and you have to be patient.

It is better to make one or two quality posts a week, than just to put out posts for the sake of getting more content on your blog. Remember quality always wins over quantity.  It is easier to write about things you know about.  It´s a good idea to blog about that, perhaps a hobby or a sport.  Choose something you can be passionate about, and it will show in your blog. What better way to make money can you think of?

Here´s to your success,

  1. Make Money? From a blog? I'm just trying to get people to look at my books.

    Marc Vun Kannon

  2. These kind of articles always make people feel that it's really easy to make money from a blog. It's not! It's damn hard, and you should be prepared for spending a lot of time and effort without seeing any money at all. The image with the blog income goals also helps perpetuate that wrong idea of "speed money".

    That said, it is indeed possible, if you pick your titles correctly and provide *really good* content for your readers. Just don't expect it to come easy, like most things in life.

  3. Author Guy,

    Getting people to look at your book is one way of making money from a blog.

  4. Pedro,

    I respect your position. The image with blog income goals wasn't intended to be realistic. However, I know of cases where numbers greater than this were achieved. There are many different ways to make money from a blog. There are also varying definitions of success with a blog. Each blogger must set their own goals. I believe Wolfie's basic principles are sound.

  5. I have actively started writing this blog on movie reviews, have got a great response on the same in terms of feedback ( But how does one get people to sponsor / put ads on the blog?

  6. Yusu,

    Blogger makes it simple. There is a monetize tab on your dashboard. You can also become a affiliate and find products related to your posts to sell.
