HOW TO GET NOTICED AS A BLOGGER

Hello Everyone

When I started blogging, which is not that long ago, I had to learn a lot of things really fast and correct my mistakes along the way. I still don’t know everything about blogging but I like getting to figure out stuff and learning even much more from other bloggers. Once you get into this blogging world, you realise real quick that you are not the only one and that some have been doing this gig for quite some time which may make you feel discouraged and wonder how you can also get out there and join other bloggers at the top. This is how to get noticed as a blogger.

HOW TO GET NOTICED AS A BLOGGER

1.CONSISTENCY

We’ve all had about this consistency, and yes people it is key. If you want people to know who you are and continue coming back to your content, then you need to have a plan on how you will be consistent in your writing and keep at it. I am not saying write a post everyday, I tried that and ended up just making everything even harder for myself. So I would suggest you create a schedule and have certain days for writing, planning and publishing. The more consistent you are the better for your readers to come back.

2.BE GENUINE

I have read many people talking about uniqueness, I kinda disagree with that to a certain point because you just want to be noticed first as a blogger, so I would remove being unique and just say be YOU, be genuine and personal. Don’t try to be how another blogger is stop comparing yourself to others and just be you and it will show right through your content and that’s the only way you will start progressing.

3.KNOW YOUR NICHE

Have a topic you are writing about and stick to it. The best part about blogging is that there is no specific thing that you have to write about to become a good blogger. You can write about anything so long as you can show other people thatΒ you know what you are talking about and continue doing that. Here are answers you need to find your niche and once you know what it is, everything becomes easier and because you love what you’re doing, other people will notice that and want to come back and read more of your content.

4.PROMOTE,PROMOTE,PROMOTE

Everybody knows the internet is king and using it to be noticed is a good idea. The only thing I would say is choose a particular platform that you will be using to promote your blog focusing on mostly where most of your views generate from, if you are all over the place, it’s going to be a little bit overwhelming and so sticking to a couple of platforms that you are more active on is a good idea be it Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, Stumbleupon, all these are good platforms you just have to choose where your blog does well Β and be good at it, hence getting your name and blog out there.

5.READ AND COMMENT

Start interacting with other bloggers by reading their blogs and being able to comment genuinely, the best way to do this is looking for blogs within your niche and have a read, see what others have to offer and if you like someone’s post, do comment and tell the writer what you thought about it. Don’t just race through a blog post and comment “great post” like seriously, it’s not a like for like, find posts that you really connect with and give them your honest feedback, I am sure you would also want the same. That way once you start talking to other bloggers through their blogs, your name gets out there and so does your blog.

Lastly, I hope that these points will help you and remember that learning is a continuous process, I knowΒ there are many more ways but these are the ones I have for you now. If you have any more tips that have helped you in your blogging journey, feel free to share in the comments below.

  1. Very useful. I too have just started blogging, I think I have overwhelmed myself by trying to promote on too many different platforms too quickly, and it’s now hard to keep track. I’m not used to it yet. Your advice will be used, I will concentrate on less platforms and master them first.
    Thanks

    1. You’re welcome I also did that at the beginning and now I just focus mostly on Facebook and Pinterest according to where I get most of my views and it has really helped. Thank you for stopping by.

  2. Wonderful insight and tips that you have given us here. My main problem is staying consistent and creating a schedule. Now that school is ending, I have more time to dedicate to my blog, and get it to where I want it to be.

  3. Being genuine is indeed the most important part. Better have 100 loyal followers who know you and trust you because they can relate to you rather 1000 followers who dont know who you really are.

    1. Very true. Thank you, I rather someone not read my post if it’s not for you other than just commenting randomly without understanding the post.

  4. It can be a wild jungle blogging where no one knows you and it makes sence to get out there socialize with other bloggers and get your name out there for people to know you.
    Well written and very informative,thanks for sharing

  5. This is exactly what I’m struggling with at the moment. I find it hard to be consistent when I feel like there’s no one reading, and promotion is my Achilles heel. I’ve just got to keep working at it, but it’s so hard not to get disheartened sometimes!

    1. That’s the downside of blogging, we just have to keep at it and hope that even one person will read our content. Even now I still don’t get as much views as other bloggers but I just continue writing and know that it will pay off at the end. We can do this.

  6. Great tips! I just started out, I’ve been blowing for 3 weeks now and I’m loving it! I need to figure out how to promote on pinterest! I’ve got the other platforms covered. Thanks πŸ™‚

    I would love if you checked out my fashion/beauty/lifestyle blog and let me know your thoughts

  7. This is great Joan! My blog turns 1 month old tomorrow so I’m new as well! It’s so helpful for me to read tips and techniques from other bloggers as I try to find my footing in this wonderful world of blogging!

    1. Congratulations to you and your blog you will find that it will get easy as you go and you get to learn something new everyday as I am still learning too.

  8. Definitely something that I’m struggling with and I feel like it’s so difficult figuring out priorities when I’m also trying to find a job πŸ™ any tips?

    1. What I would suggest is you choose one that you want to focus on first, if it’s finding a job do that first and make blogging be part time because if you decide to do both, it’s really going to be difficult and you will end up burnt out and frustrated.

  9. I am so inspired by your post. I am trying not to give up but it gets difficult. Thank you for the pointers. I am trying very hard every day!!

  10. Very relatable tips….I feel like all the points are important but since you don’t get noticed by just doing them within a year, consistency is most important. Keep writing and don’t get discouraged if you aren’t getting the feedback you expect

  11. Hi Joan,

    Great tips and I totally agree with you about commenting on other blogs. Since I’ve started taking the time to read and comment, I’ve built up some great blogging relationships.

    I’ve also managed to land 9 guest blogging opportunities. I know that I never would’ve been able to guest post that much without taking the time to comment on other blogs.

    Now I make it a point to comment on other people’s blogs on a regular basis. Not just for traffic but like you said to help me get noticed and make friendships.

    Thanks for sharing these tips, have a great day πŸ™‚

  12. Good tips thanks. I am still trying to find my niche while also trying to learn Pinterest along the way….But the one thing I certainly do have control of is consistency so will keep it up.

    1. Consistency is key, it’s the only way your readers will come back and want more from you, don’t worry it does get easier and we do learn along the way. Happy blogging.

  13. Thank you for your tips. I just started blogging. And never thought about the read and comment, I will definitely start using that tip. Good luck!

  14. Thank you for the wonderful tips! Since I am a newbie to the blogging and having done so much research here and there about blogging. I have heard a lot of these tips. But I think its AWESOME how you put them important steps all in one pretty little place on your blog πŸ™‚

  15. Hi Joan, thank you for the great tips. I just started blogging end of July, and I’ve been trying to figure things out myself. And I’m starting to get frustrated, not a great writer but I am trying. I just need to narrow my niche and the promotion part, what or how to use these platforms. Thank you so much for sharing, this will definitely help me. Happy Blogging! πŸ™‚

    1. You’re welcome, blogging is hard work and once you narrow down your niche, it get’s easier and things start coming into place, take it one step at a time and don’t stress about it.

  16. Great post! I’ve been blogging for several years now and this is really good advice. The only other thing I can think of to include is that it is a marathon not a sprint. I see so many bloggers work so hard so fast when they compare themselves to bigger, more established blogs that they end up burning out and throw in the towel when they don’t instantly see the same results. Be patient and take care of yourself first and it will come! Wishing you all the best!

  17. Yes, this is all so true! I always try to comment on other people’s work as well–I think it’s so important. And promoting. Yes, I do that a lot!

  18. Giveaways work well sometimes too, especially during the holidays. Everyone likes to get a little something by chance every now and again. πŸ™‚

  19. Great insight in to how to get noticed – and by giving, it’s amazing how much we can get back! Love that you call out the need to read/support other bloggers!

  20. It’s funny to think when I started 4 years ago I knew nothing about blogging but slowly and surely I learnt the very lessons you’ve listed above. Consistency and supporting fellow bloggers is very important

  21. These are great tips. The promoting is what is so draining! It takes almost as long to promote a post as it does to write it. I guess that’s why a lot of people get assistants.

  22. I have been blogging for almost 6 years and I feel like I have so much to learn. I jumped in just for the reviews with little help and knowledge on what I am doing. Now that I do, I feel like it’s easier to start over.

    1. It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been at it do long as you know what to do from now, then that’s all that matters, starting over ain’t that bad if done the right way. Happy blogging.

  23. These are some great tips! I’m just starting my blog and being consistent is challenging but I def plan to make a schedule to keep myself accountable.

  24. I think these are really great tips. I love the part about being genuine, because I feel like its one of the first things you notice.

    1. yes it reaches a point where if your readers know how you sound in your posts then all of a sudden it changes, that’s where readers notice something fishy, being yourself is the best thing.

    1. I know right?Before I started I was like it’s not that bad but afterwards and now I’m like I never thought I had to do all of this but it’s all good, fun and I’m loving it.

  25. These are all great tips for any blogger to get noticed. It is so important to get the right niche that fits you and to be consistent in your postings as well as participating with your readers. The more unique you are the more people you will attract I believe. Thanks for sharing the tips.

  26. CONSISTENCY does it, and again focusing/promoting your post on a particular social media platform that you get more traffic from reduce the stress.
    been controversial sometimes does it….smile.
    great tips

  27. I’ve been working on the “read & comment” bit recently – it’s hard, especially since I don’t want to leave generic “great post!” comments that provide no value.

  28. Hi I’m new to blogging. I will definitely use some of your tips. Promoting on social media is really hard for me but since its one way to get noticed I will have to do it. I agree with you that being true to yourself in your writing is better than following some formula of a big blogger. Your voice is unique to you so you should use it to your advantage.
