If You Are A Newbie …

Apart from “other” regular activities like blog promotion, advertising, connecting, doing SEO, etc., a blogger should indulge in creating quality content on a consistent manner.
Professional bloggers are great at creating high quality content. If you notice, they leading big blogs. Naturally those A-List bloggers develop experience over the time and they get better with their writing and content marketing skills.
But for a newbie blogger, content creation could be a challenge.
So here are some methods to write great blog posts, even if you are a newbie.
Identify What Your Readers Want
To whom are you writing your blog posts? For people, right?
Try to get more precise. What “kind” of people, they have to be?
Drill down at the most so that you can identify YOUR target audience. A “field”, “interest” or a “niche” is still wider. You need to narrow down to find a laser focused group – your target audience. Create a personality for your target audience. Let that be a virtual person.
Whenever you write a blog post or an email newsletter, talk to that person; write for that person.
This way your content gets even more laser targeted. And before you start creating content for that person (blog post, newsletter, info-product, or any form of content), find out what interests that target group. Otherwise, you will simply be wasting your time and efforts. This is the number one mistake that most newbies are making and this is the most common reason why most newbies quit blogging quite soon. They put their sweat and blood in creating content that is not sought by anyone. They create content just because they are either passionate about it, or they read about it a lot. But they don’t care enough to check whether the content is of interest to the audience they’re targeting.
Get Better At Writing
Writing is just like exercising. Initially it is not very enjoyable; it hurts. And that’s totally normal; nothing to worry about. But when you keep on doing it, writing becomes less painful, eventually more enjoyable.
In order to get “there”, you need to be doing a lot of writing. It is just like working out your muscles at the gym. It hurts initially but later on you simply love doing more of it, right? Writing is very similar; it gets better with practice: the more you write, the better you get at it. So you need to make yourself write a lot to get “there”. Of course, you won’t be able to use all of that writing. Some of it will be crappy. But don’t give up. As you keep writing you will be able to write a lot and also be able to use all of it.

Supply your brain with necessary foder
In order to produce something you always need something as input. For certain things this is most obvious; say for instance we eat food in order to get the necessary energy to be productive and hence we produce. In the same way, if we want to create content (output) our brain needs some fodder (input). If the fodder we provide is of good quality, then for sure, it will help us produce content that is of good quality.
As a newbie (or even as an advanced one) it is highly crucial for a blogger to read regularly. Make sure you subscribe to a handful good quality blogs. Don’t jump with excitement and subscribe to every blog you come across. Remember, the quality of your output highly depends on the quality of your input.
Are you a person who loves to read paper books? Find out two or three passionate topics and shop for books once a month in Amazon. Or if you like to read e-books, you can still have them via Kindle or download them on your computer and read on-screen or print (whichever is convenient for you). In any case, make sure you read any specific number of books (that’s realistic to you) per month. [ Read more good-article-writing-tips ]
Win your reader’s heart
Don’t try to please your passion to write on a topic. Don’t try to please the search engines by focusing too much on optimizing the post for search engines. It is your readers who will make or break your business, not a search engine, not a social media site and not specific software. It is your readers who do business with you, who trust you, who appreciate you for your work, who help spread your word and who buy from you.
Make sure you win their heart. Make sure your bloggers feel home when they’re at your blog. Give them what they want. Solve their problem. Be warm to them.
Take the extra effort to help your readers even outside of your blog. If they post a problem or need help in any social media site, like Facebook, Google+ or Twitter, jump in and help them. Don’t be promotional though. Don’t hard sell. Don’t be annoying. Just be helpful.
So what’s with the SEO without SEOing?
All you need to know is what people are hungrily searching for and how competitive that particular topic is. And then, if you really practice your writing, you can naturally optimize the post for that particular topic – remember, search engines love useful, unique, and well-written content that pleases their users!
With this content strategy, you probably don’t need an SEO expert (and isn’t that good news for the newbies?).
Writing blog posts is one of the most crucial aspects of running a blog and this process should not be a tedious one, making you to work for your blog. It should rather be the other way around.
Newbie or not, blogging can be so easy if you just have patience, time and passion to do it.
