SomeValuable Truths I Discovered While Blogging

Author : Bruce Gilchrist

Everyone learns new things in two ways. The first way is just as we did it in school - listen, read, and take down notes. And as we learned in the classroom, many times we thought we were learning stuff we probably won't need later in life. We term this passive learning.

Then there's active learning, the type a lot of people like better since this type of learning gets you directly involved. You have the option to choose what you want to learn about, or at times, you're forced to learn simply because you badly need the inputs. Most people love active learning because one can select the things he wants to learn about, and not because he only needs to pass the course. So you get to a point where it becomes both fun and educational, something most people wished school stuff really had.

What separates passive from active learning is that passive learning has the tendency to get uninteresting over time while the converse would be the case for active learning. With active learning, you discern new and interesting things as you learn your way through the subject matter. There are even moments when you wish to learn more than what is available at a particular time. Such as the case of blogging in the world of internet marketing.

Some years back, the term "blogging" was quite strange to a lot of people. But because needs of the time pointed to a new path of information, most of us just had to discover what blogging was all about. Well as I worked my way through blogging, I've come to understand that there were so many facts about it that I could not have discovered without actually experiencing them. Here are some observations that I ought to share with you:

Your blog posts need to be exceptional. Millions of people across the globe are creating their own blogs so you need to stand apart from the rest. Great blog content will draw attention, but a lot of good blog writers primarily did not have that in mind - they merely wrote to give readers some informational value that can be valuable. All the attention to their blog only followed because people liked what they were getting. Good blog writers provide unique value to their content from their unique experiences - that's what makes their blogs very personal. So ascertain that your blog posts are unique. It also helps to go cheerful on the tone and add on a little humor - readers enjoy being amused.

To do well at blogging, you have to enjoy writing. I'm quite thankful that I love doing all the writing now. I will impart a little secret. I wasn't born a writer but only found out that writing can be enjoyable when I began to put in some comments into other blogs or forum posts. And when the authors responded, I discovered how a lot easier writing can get. In fact, writing is really a lot like like something we all love to do - TALK. Only put down in text form. Take on this approach to writing, and make it the simple transformation of ideas into words - and everything will just flow. And if the notion of sitting down with a pen and paper or pumelling on the keyboards brings anxious feelings, try video blogging. It's one of the newest ways to blog nowadays.

Pick up traffic from several sources. Don't count entirely on your blog to rope in all the traffic for you. While keywords and tags are essential, it profits to collaborate with other sources such as other bloggers, through forum participation, Facebook, Twitter, Digg, and other social sites or article sites. Make your blog interactive, so your visitors and members get involved.

Blogging will introduce you to a lot of amazing people. I've discovered so much about blogging and other internet stuff from so many amazing people I've met online. Blogging also enabled me to form the best of partnerships and affiliate tie-ups. So don't set limits for yourself - take blogging beyond the net and reach out to your audience and partners. Write to them or invite them to lunch if they're coming to town arises. Or pay them a personal visit if you travel. Great business partnerships have been formed this way ever since.

In a matter of time, all things will pick up. And when it does, there's no way to go but UP! You must do a lot of work at the start - just like everything else in life. But once you begin giving value, you will get better exposures and referrals that will result to bigger collaborations and alliances in a matter of time. For some it takes just a few months, for others it can take years. You just have to persist and be tough, and you will get there. Do not get easily dispirited and keep the faith!
