This is no new thing for anyone. It’s obvious that to become a blogger, you must have a blog. But there are many things you should know before launching your blog.
You must have the clear vision about the niche you’re going to take further. You should choose the niche you like. Don’t jump to something technical or boring niche if you don’t like.
Choose the best platform like WordPress. The self-hosted version of WordPress would be the best choice. Choose your web hosting very carefully.
The web hostings like BlueHost, InmotionHosting, Siteground are perfect. You should always bring new blog post ideas to wow your readers.
2. Choose Your Marketing Platform.
There are many ways to promote your website to get 100000 visitors. But you must choose the right marketing platform. You should build your own strategy including the social media platforms, blogging communities and more.
The most important thing is that you should choose one or two social media platforms for your marketing. Don’t try to be that everywhere person.

There are many people who are still trying to figure out the best thing to do to become a famous blogger. They want someone to guide them.
Be that person and help the beginners. Doesn’t it feel great when you help someone then get that happy smile? Helping others is one of the most reflecting characteristics of a famous blogger.
You may have noticed that people just try to manipulate others. Well, you should never do that. Your readers trust you and you should provide what is beneficial for them.
4. Learn The ABCD of SEO.
To become a famous blogger, you must improve the ranking of your blog. It can only be done if you learn the basics of the SEO.
You should know how to write SEO friendly article, how to optimize your website for SEO with proper permalinks structure, what are the ways to reduce the bounce rate of your website and more.
A few bloggers say that blogging is just about writing. Well, it’s true but to build a professional blog, you must learn everything about the Search Engine Optimization.
5. Make Connections With Marketers.
It doesn’t mean that you target only the people who are good in marketing. You should look for the bloggers who have the value in their work.
There are many bloggers who have achieved their goals and still heading towards that highest peak of the blogosphere.
Blog commenting is one the best methods to connect with other bloggers. People appreciate comments and they will do the same.
It’s what we call reciprocation.
6. Start Writing Guest Posts.
In the recent years of blogging, the guest posting was not a trend. But in the present era, people are searching for the authority blogs which are accepting the guest posts.
Here comes the human bonding part. You will get a benefit in guest posting. It’s because the bloggers allow only the trusted people to share their opinions on their blog.
The more you write, the more you get the exposure to your blog. You will get a chance to meet the new audience. The guest posting is one of the fastest ways to become a famous blogger.
7. Interview Others And Get Interviewed.
This can be something you must do to build your own brand. Along with your blog, you can promote yourself. You can take an interview of a few famous personalities on your niche.
If you have influenced others with your work then you would surely get interviewed by someone. It’s all about you and the output of your writing skills.
In this blogosphere and people are out there with a unique writing style. But the main thing which matters is how you present yourself to your readers.
People will approach you to have your interview. Be ready to become a famous blogger.
8. Show The Confidence In Your Work.
People like to connect with the blogger who has something sparking to provide. Never underestimate yourself, write confidently.
The one thing you must keep in your mind is that never provide the content which is hard for you to explain. People would ask you and you should ready to give the answers.
It really affects the reputation when someone just copies and pastes the content and not able to clarify about it. Be confident about your content and your knowledge about it.
Are You Still Struggling To Become A famous Blogger?
The best part about following your blogging dream is that you never feel bored. There is always an excitement. In the journey to become a famous blogger, you have to go through many ups and downs.
Be prepared for every single hurdle and cross it. To get what you want, you must work hard. The label of a famous blogger won’t come to you, you have to work for that.
Never lose your patience, blogging is a marathon and sprinters can’t get the medal. You must have the will to be strong enough to face every worst thing.
Is there anything you want to share about your blogging journey? We would love to hear that.
Wow. An amazing job.
A nice mentioning. I used to a tell a newbie about grabbing self-hosted service and premium theme. I asked him, do you want to start blogging as a newbie or an expert. To make your business blog professional is essential and crucial for starting a career with blogging.
This is the most I love regarding what you said. Helping each other to thrive our business is a professional habit of a blogger, and I set it as my blogging code of conduct.
What’s more, it is primary facet for successful in blogging as well as other kind of businesses. There is no matter, whether your business is offline or online, If you always help the others to do the business, they will appreciate in helping you back.
Thanks for sharing…
No doubt that WordPress is one of the best platforms and people who want to start a professional should choose it. Though the free platform would also do fine but still, more freedom is required.
Helping others is the master key of a blogger. It doesn’t matter whether you run an online business or offline, you must always stick to it.
Thanks for stopping by.
Thanks for the write up but mostly what I see in people is, they want to earn money from their blog. They don’t really go for becoming a rock-star or famous blogger. All they are concerned and obsessed with, is MONEY. And that’s the exact culprit behind the failure of majority of the bloggers.
They expect results and payback overnight. Remember, Blogging is just like building your muscles. You don’t get six packs overnight of just after a week or two.
Building a Blog and Building Muscles, both take Time,Dedication and Patience.
What’s My Verdict?
In my opinion, every blogger should strive to become famous among the people of their niche. How? By providing them with Value and helping them. Instead of expecting them to give you their email address/help in increasing your affiliate commission or buying any of your product.
Blogging is simply other way around, You GIVE, GIVE, GIVE and then Expect. Let me just conclude with one Motivational quote
You got it pretty good.
Blogging isn’t just about making money. Most of the beginners jump into money making and fail within a few months. Blogging is about helping your readers and provide them the quality content.
Blogging is like building muscles. You rock it with this comparison.
It’s god to know you understand this blogosphere in a positive way. It’s all about giving and waiting for the reward.
Thanks for taking the time to read this article.
Have a great week ahead.
Hi Ravi, I wouldn’t say I want to be a famous blogger but one that could make money to not have to work a day job and make an impact on others, to help them reach their goals. I enjoy blogging and make a little money from it but I would love to kick it up a notch. I know it takes time, lots of time and patience. It doesn’t happen overnight. It also takes a lot of hard work. Doing some things you may not want to do or learn to outsource a few tasks along the way.
I love your point about writing confidently. I don’t see that tip often and it’s a really good one. Thanks for sharing with us Ravi!
As I have mentioned in the article, we all have our own perspectives about blogging. Some people want to be famous, some people want to help others. Blogging is what we all love.
Making money can be a plus point. But the main motto should be to help your readers. People think that they can be the blogging star within a few days. They should learn to keep the patience.
Thanks for stopping by.
Enjoy the day.
Ravi, all valid points, specially the second one where you mentioned to focus on a few social media platforms which strategically fit in your plan. I have seen countless number of bloggers falling trap to this one. Spreading too thin on many platforms and not doing even “one” properly.
I myself have been guilty of that but now I have learnt and focused on two main platforms of my choice. Twitter and Google Plus in my case at the moment. Nice article, keep it up the good work. Cheers.
In the starting days, I used to be everywhere. But now, I set the timing for each social media platform. Every blogger has his own favorite platforms and that’s what he/she should use.
If you try to be the king od social media then don’t dream to be everywhere. Just choose two.
Thanks for stopping by.
Enjoy your week ahead.
Agreed, couple of platforms are enough. To be honest Ravi, Social Media is at number three on my list of marketing strategies now. It comes after email marketing and blogger outreach. So all that shine and glitter of the social media can be a distraction if not carefully planned. Cheers for your views.
It’s the matter of choice, Ahmad. Many people prefer social media as the first tool. But still, keep going with your work and get the results you want.
YEs, indeed you shared some important basic things to look into before starting a blog.
Easy to follow suggestions, i fully agree with most of the points mentioned in.
I am sure this will be a best guide to anyone who wants to start a blog of their own.
But, i slightly disagree with one of the so called famous hosters you mentioned in. I have had a bad experience with them recently. Tat is really horrible to explain.
Have a wonderful time ahead.
Sometimes, people feel like bombarding from every side and they behave badly to others. I can understand your frustration with the famous bloggers.
It just happens due to some useless reasons.
But if you want to become a famous blogger then it would be a plus point to connect with the influencers.
Thanks for dropping by.
Enjoy the day.
