Have you started a blog or thinking about starting one? Not sure how to get more readers, build community and grow your blog? Here are 5 Blogging Tips from 5 Blogging Pros to help your blog take off.
Recently, I wrote about my experience winning the Best Business Blog in Australia and shared 11 tattoo-worthy blogging tips for helping to grow your own blog (tips from 11 savvy bloggers who had mentored me in some way, and who had shaped the growth of Socially Sorted). I asked a handful of those bloggers if they would share their Number 1 tip for new bloggers and (if you already have a blog), helping it to take off.
5 Blogging Tips from the Pros
#1 Amy Porterfield
Since blogging consistency helps to create a loyal audience, “batching” is one of the best ways to ensure you are constantly creating new content. Schedule the time in advance and work on writing multiple blog posts during one writing session – that way you won’t feel that you are constantly hustling to get your next post up! – Amy Porterfield

#2 Melonie Dodaro
The #1 tip I would give to new and even seasoned bloggers is only blog as often as you can create great, quality content. It’s better to blog less frequently and create a stellar piece of content. People really enjoy in depth “how to” blogs so make sure when you are writing that you leave the readers with some tangible things they can use and implement immediately – Melonie Dodaro
#3 Rebecca Livermore
The most vital thing any blogger can do is PUBLISH. Don’t let learning take the place of doing, and don’t worry about being perfect! – Rebecca Livermore
#4 Ian Cleary
Ian Cleary built one of the most successful blogs in the Industry in just 6 months and has been a two time winner of the Top 10 Social Media Blogs by Social Media Examiner with his blog Razor Social. Ian knows how to create quality content and how to get that content shared. Here is what he had to tell you:
Writing quality content is not enough. You need to build relationships with other bloggers, build a process for blog post promotion and leverage tools and outreach techniques to stand out from your competitors. – Ian Cleary

Don’t be urgent to make money from your blog. Focus on building your community. Build your community and then the opportunities to earn an income off or because of your blog will happen. – Nikki Parkinson
