Hey Catherine,

Nice infographic is this your first one?

I totally agree with all your tips but I have to say that 10 really hits home for me.

With patience comes being realistic. We have to be realistic about our goals, the amount of time we have to accomplish them and the sacrifices we sometimes have to make to achieve them.

Definitely pinning this for you right now.

Have a good week Catherine!

Thanks Steven. This was my second Infographic on this site. This was my first: http://bloggingtips101.com/7-crucial-blog-design-tips/ They are certainly fun arn’t they!!

I think a lot of bloggers struggle with #10 – myself included! Patience is not the easiest thing at the best of times, especially when blogging. I think your right, you really need to look at the goals you set and the sacrifices you will have to make to achieve them. It will be then you will work out whether it is worth it (in your eyes). If not, then the patience will never happen!

I’m working on my #4 for my personal blogging! :) It’s my kryptonite…. It’s so much easier getting it done for clients… haha.

Pinning and sharing this for your Catherine!

Having a schedule is incredibly important Dennis, I know that there is no way I could get everything done if I didn’t have one. Lol…yes it can be easier organising other people than ourselves sometimes can’t it. Keep working at your own schedule too though and once it becomes habit things will become a lot easier :-)

Hey Catherine,

Great infographic.

I wanted to single out a couple points that I agreed with more than others but I couldn’t do that because they were all great points. #10 like both yourself and Steven said is something for me as well. We all want to achieve success blogging and if there was a magic way we could flip a switch and make it happen instantaneously then we would, but that doesn’t and won’t happen. So it’s something that we have to develop for sure.

Great points.

Thanks Andrew, I’m pleased that you enjoyed the Infographic, although sorry I couldn’t make it easier for you to pick out some main points….lol.

Patience really is the key isn’t it….along with perserverence of course! Blogging is certainly not something you are going to find rewards from quickly, so we really do need to be patient (whilst working hard). It’s difficult to do, but those that have the patience are going to be the ones left standing. Unfortunately that magic switch would also cost a lot of $$$$ if it ever was to appear!

I appreciate your thoughts here Andrew :-)

Hi Catherine.

Nice tips and infographics. I think points #2 and #8 are easily forgotten. It’s important to know our target audience and respond personally to each comment.

Also with #9, the call to action is very important. After all, that’s why we make ourselves visible.

written by Catherine Holt On 24 September 2014 Reply

When bloggers get very busy it can be easy to forgoe #8 can’t it Nathan. Responding to comments takes time, and if your not careful this can easily be something that slips by the way side….especially as you get more and more comments. But at the end of the day, you need to be listening to your readers and you are not doing that unless you are reading and responding accordingly to their comments. Besides….it’s just polite to acknowledge when someone has taken the time to leave you a message!

And yes, the call to action is so important. This also seems to be another thing that many bloggers forget to do. It’s almost as if they are scared of promoting what they have to offer. A call to action doesn’t have to be ‘in your face’, but it does need to be visible and you do need to put yourself out there a little bit if you plan on making your blog a success.

Thanks for sharing your ideas here Nathan :-)

Hi Catherine,

All fab tips and if you get your mental game down pat all come together nicely.

For years I struggled with 1 and 10. I had no niche, and I was impatient. Working on my mindset helps me let go my old blog to pick a clear, defined niche.

This clear choice helped give me confidence and it also developed my patience. Since I knew I was moving in the right direction I had no fear of going slowly, and I was naturally patient.

eBook #3 is about to go live soon – just proof-read it and am waiting for a cover from Phil Dews – and #4 is being written, with 5 and 6 in mind. All within 3 months. How? Mental science.

I’ll likely pick a mental science themed eBook for #5 or #6, we will see….because many folks struggle with each tip, for their mindset is poor, and confined.

Root out those limiting beliefs, and magic happens.

As for lack of patience, cultivate more and more gratitude for all you have in your life. Works wonders, for when you feel awesome and happy for all you have, you don’t notice what you don’t have. (the latter leading to impatience)

Thanks so much Catherine!

Tweeting through Triberr.

Ryan

Working on the mindset is incredibly important Ryan. Once you have you mind in the right place, everything else starts falling into place. It sounds crazy, but it’s true. But the tricky thing is, that it takes a lot of work and reflection and is not something that you can just ‘turn on’.

But once your mindset is right, you will naturally find that you start to make different choices and opportuities start to present themselves. It’s an exciting place to be.

Sounds like you are on a roll with your ebooks…great work! Your headpsace is definitiely in the right place :-)

Thanks for stopping by Ryan, I really appreciate your comments.

Hi Catherine,

Great post indeed.:)

Its always recommended that if want to become a great bloggers then one thing you must clear about is your vision about your work. The niche you are going to stick with through your blogging ppath for your blog should be defined.

Many bloggers have their niche as blogging but write about getting discount on electronics tools. I mean how could they do that?

Time is always the major concern for bloggers. Its very important to make a schedule for writing blog post and for their promotion too.

As promotion is much more important than just writing blog posts. Follow 80/20 rule to boost your blog.

All the points you have included in this article are awesome to follow.

Thanks for sharing with us.

Hope you are enjoying this week.:)

~Ravi

Defining the niche is incredibly important Ravi. It’s not something I totally ‘got’ when I started blogging either, and really is something that you understand more of over time. Refining the niche will make a huge difference to the success of your blog and provide relevance to your readers.

If only we could find more time hey. I think this is the cry of most bloggers, as there are always too many tasks to be done in the day. A schedule will definitely help keep you on track and keep yourself accountable.

Thanks for leaving all your thoughts here Ravi :-)

Hi Catherine,

I love when bloggers give their “Top tips” and find it very valuable that you shared yours, so thank you!

I do enjoy info graphics, and always like to learn from visual aids.

I really like your tip number two as I’ve found this to be absolutely true. Ya know, having a schedule is necessary, and I definitely do have one, but have had to change it up in the last month or two due to family needs. That’s the beauty of having our own business, isn’t it? We get to decide what our priorities are. :-)

I think you’re tip number seven is spot on! I’m so glad that I started building a list in the beginning of my business. No regrets there.

Calls to action are so very important, and I agree wholeheartedly with the need to be patient. Would you believe I had a hosting client the other day install WordPress, put one post up and asked when he would start making money….?

Unreal. Very unrealistic view – I, of course, told him there was a lot of work ahead, and that blogging is not a get rich quick scheme.

Great post, Catherine…Will be sharing with my friends.
Have a great day.
- Carol

Thanks Carol. I like simple top tips too, and turning them into Infographics is a lot of fun, so I am planning on doing a lot more of these :-)

I couldn’t live without my schedule, purely because I couldn’t keep all that information in my head! I also find that having a schedule means that I can release the thoughts onto paper which then clears my mind. If I tried to keep it all in my head, it would just be a mess! A schedule is definitely the way to go for me.

It sounds like your client may need to work on their patience! If only it were that easy to make money!! It’s funny though, because if someone spent a day learning any other trade they wouldn’t then ask how they could make money by the end of the week. For some reason people seem to think that this is possible with blogging. It really shows that they have not undertaken their research or given any real thought as to how their business will run.

I appreciate you sharing here Carol :-)

Hey Catherine,

Love the infographic! For me, having a schedule and clearly defined goals has been SO important.

I also learned that “schedule” can’t just be a to-do list if you’re as ADD as I am. When you move from the structure of a corporate job to freelancing, it becomes a lot harder to stick to self-imposed deadlines.

Determining who your audience is can be more of a challenge than a lot of bloggers realize, and I think it goes hand in hand with identifying your niche.

Personally, one of the tricks I use is to have an imaginary reader. Not an age group or a demographic, but one reader than I’m speaking to. When I write a post, I ask myself, would Janey relate to this? Does it help her? It may seem weird at first, but it really helps with clarity!

Anyway, definitely pinning this – thanks for sharing! :)

Thanks Mandie, infographics are a lot of fun to work with :-)

I love your idea about writing for an imaginary friend. If your friend is your specific target audience, then provided each and every article you write is going to benefit that friend, it will also benefit your other readers. Like you say, if they wont relate, then you are off topic. We should all start writing to our imaginary buddies :-)

Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts today, it’s really appreciated :-)

Great infographic Catherine.
#6 and #7 are the two that I was missing the most on my blog.

Being social helps to get more loyal readers, hence more direct visitors and comments.
Collecting emails is important. After some years, it would become the highest traffic driver for you. And you may need not to depend on Google by adopting these above two.

Meanwhile great infographic, it badly tempted me to Tweet ;-)

What tool do you use to create infographics? Canva?

Cheers, Akshay Hallur.

written by Catherine Holt On 27 September 2014 Reply

Social is definitely the key in blogging isn’t it Akshay. The more you can connect with readers the more they will return and also share your content so that others can return. Blogging is a lonely experience without being social!

Canva is a great tool to use for Infographic. This one I actually outsourced, as I wanted something done quickly and I didn’t have the time :-)

Hi Catherine!

Interesting infographic.

I find being patient one of the most important points.
As well as being consistent with hard work.

Results won’t come overnight, but will arrive, sooner or later!

Have a great week Catherine! :-)

written by Catherine Holt On 27 September 2014 Reply

Patience is definitely a hard thing to conquer. It can be hard waiting for the results to appear, but when they do you won’t look back. That’s easier to say than do for new bloggers though and it’s often the patience that kills their blogs.

I appreciate your comment here Erik :-)

Catherine,

This is AWESOME! Nice work! What design software do you use to create yours/where do you get your icons? I love that you made it possible to embed on people’s sites, I’ll definitely consider it! I’ve been meaning to try that too, I’ve read about how great that can be for your SEO as well as other things.

Well done! I’ll make sure to pin it!
Brittany

Thanks Brittany.

I actually outsourced the graphics for this as I wanted something done quickly. Plus it’s exciting to see results come back when all you initially submit is the words…lol

Yes, I didn’t put the embedded link on my other Infographic but I will do from this point. If you make it nice and easy to people to share then they will do. Easy is my motto :-)

Thanks for sharing your ideas :-)

Hai katherine.
This is a great way to present ideas in a different manner that can be understood by everyone easily. I considered these blogging tips as a plan. Because planning is equal to success. To me, the main important tip is be patient. It is an essential ingredient needed for every blogger’s attitude not only bloggers but also every human being. For the success of s blog, it requires time and effort.

written by Catherine Holt On 29 September 2014 Reply

That’s the great thing about infographics isn’t it Sanjay. You can present information in a clear and simple manner that is easy to digest. Patience is not an easy thing, but if you can bear with things, then your blogging journey will benefit from it a lot more.

Time and effort is absolutely the key.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing your ideas Sanjay :-)
