What Happened To Blogging and Having A Great Blog?

Do You Want To Have A Great Blog?

great blogDid you know blogging online began back in 1994? The first recognized blog was linkes.net. It was really a person’s personal notes on life. A very simple great blog. Since then over millions of people blog. Another hundred million+ people use social networking sites to blog like Twitter. Twitter is considered a micro-blogging which consist of short and frequent posts.

Many blogs today are multi-authored blogs as one author bloggers find it difficult to compete with more and more blogs being published each day. Many bloggers also do guest posting and sponsored posting.

Starting A New Great Blog

Starting a new blog today offers you many choices. The best way to start is having your own self-hosted blog. Self-hosted means you own it. It’s your property. If you choose a free blog platform like blogger, Tumblr or wordpress.com you do NOT own the blog. It can come down or disappear at anytime.

Hosting A Great Blog

Having a self-hosted blog means you pay to have it hosted on the world wide web. Which hosting service you pick is a very important decision. When I first started I choose a reseller – not good. I could not get in touch with the person who lived on the west coast when problems arose. (and with blogging they will from time to time) Since then I’ve been with Hostgator. I love their 24/7 customer service and tech support.  That is very important if you are not a very techie person.

Domain Name For Your Great Blog

Another important decision in getting started to blog is the name you choose from your domain. You really need to do some research on this one. If the domain name was used before check out its history. Be sure when you register your name with GoDaddy, etc. that you do for at least 2 years at a time as Google will like it better. If you do just one year they don’t take your website as serious. You’d be known as a fly by night company. Be sure to get alerts when it is time to renew your domain. I’ve found many of my customers websites down as they forget to renew their domain over the years.

Choosing Your Niche Topic For Your Great Blog

bloggingToday many experts believe you need to have a narrow niche. Blogs that have broad topics are harder to generate traffic to. I learned this a few years back via Ryan Biddulph. He is the blogger that was a security guard in New Jersey who got downsized. He became flat broke. After being out of work for months he saw his girlfriend making money online. He began the journey of his own blogging and now travels the world as a blogger. I purchased one of his eBooks and realized that having a specific niche was one of the keys to a great blog today.

Setting A Great Blog Up

If you are not very techie online or with computers you may want some help with this one. There is new great resource on how to set up a blog with step by step details. An easy to follow guide that I highly recommend you check out. I wish this informative resource post was around when I first started to blog.

Generating Traffic To Your Great Blog

This may sound easier to you but in reality it is not so easy. It takes time and patience. The biggest key for generating traffic to your new fantastic blog is to network with other bloggers. I cannot stress this one enough. You must reach out to other bloggers and share their posts too. One cannot survive blogging alone on the world wide web. Here is a great post on how to generate more social shares for your posts. This post truly shows us how we must collaborate with other bloggers and social influencers.

Guest blogging is a great way to generate new traffic to your own blog. People who never knew your blog existed may find out from their other favorite blogs when you do a guest post on it. Guest blogging also helps build up your authority in your niche.

Continuing to Blog

To continue to blog you must love what you blog about. You have to be passionate about it or you will not blog month after month, year after year. So many people do not continue to blog after just 1 year. They quit. They lose the desire to blog or were not generating income. Do not blog just for money. It will not work. You must love it. They money will then follow.

one blogRefreshing An Older Blog

You may have been blogging for years now and want to refresh your own great blog. Make sure that the blog is mobile ready. This is another key point for having a really great blog. People today are mobile more than ever before. People are reading blog posts on their phones or tablets. Desktop is no longer the number one method of being online today. Check out Google’s mobile ready test here. If your older blog is not mobile ready that is the first thing you need to update.

Keep Your Blog Simple

Many older blogs have too busy sidebars and ads. Keep it simple. The simpler the blog is the easier it is for readers to read your blog when they land there. You can also consider changing your theme. There are many new WordPress themes coming out daily. If you are unsure how to do that hire someone like Virtual Bren who can help. If you are to transfer from something like Blogger to WordPress you may need help with that too. Don’t be afraid to try or ask for help.

“I get bored very easily with the look of my blogs, so change is always happening. Whether it’s different fonts or colors, or a total theme change, I love making it happen! When I feel the need, I dive right in!” – Brenda Pace Blogger, Designer, Virtual Assistant. 
 

If your blog is too busy the readers will leave quickly. Check your bounce rate and make adjustments if your bounce rate is high. You can check that and many more things via your Google analytics and webmaster tools. Both will give you insights into what parts of your blog may need adjusting.

Updating To A Great Blog Not Always Easy

Some updates to a blog can be easy to do – like changing the blogs color or eliminating elements from the side bar. Other updates like a new theme can be more complicated and you may need to hire someone. Don’t be afraid – just be sure who you hire really knows what they are  doing. You don’t want to end up with many broken links and a negative SEO impact. When you outsource your difficult tasks you can then spend more time writing and networking. That will help you to continue to blog year after year. Blogging is hard work but if you love it you will enjoy it!

  • Hey Lisa,
    Your tutorial is really an informative one about creating a blog……… choosing topic of blog is really important as many people get attracted towards title and make assumptions according to that. Your article guidelines will really help many beginners to be a successful blogger.
    Thanks for sharing..

  • Another great post, I’ve bookmarked this blog and read it often when I am free.

    If there is anything that I’d like to improve on this blog it is the color scheme. Although I love the header, but a lot can be improved via css.

    COming back to the post, I love the post, another great post from your side.

    I loved the point about webhosting as web host pays a crucial role in the success of the blog.

  • Hello Lisa,

    Great post I guess, you’ve covered all the aspects of blogging and its newbie friendly to. Seems like I’m gonna share this post with my friends who wants to start a new blog.

  • Hello Lisa,
    That was a informative post. And yes, choosing a perfect domain name is very important.
    I have seen, many newbie bloggers either start blogging about everything or select a wrong niche.
    From wrong niche I mean, a niche with no room for growth or a niche about which they have no knowledge or interest at all. That’s why many of the new bloggers lost interest in their niche or ran out of ideas, after some time. So we should choose our niche topic wisely.
    Anyway, have a nice day.
    Cheers!

    • Hi Pankaj, welcome to Inspire to Thrive. Yes, that is important too. I’ve been toying in my head about changing mine lately. I can’t imagine starting a blog on a topic I had no interest in. One could never blog month after month like that! Thanks for coming by and sharing your input on this post Pankaj. Have a great rest of the week.

  • Hey Lisa,

    This was a great write up for crafting a blog.

    I think the most important part of this was when you mentioned having a niche blog. Being too generic, unless you have a multiauthored blog, will result in not having a lot of targeted traffic.

    You not only want targeted traffic, but also maintain return visitors to your blog. This is key, and in some ways a big challenge for a lot of people. With consistency and keeping an eye open for what content positive effects your traffic, you can definitely have a successful blog!

    Thanks for sharing Lisa! Have a great weekend!
    Sherman Smith recently posted…How Can Solopreneurs Promote Their New Blog Posts?My Profile

    • Hello Sherman. Thank you, I learned about the niche mostly from Ryan Biddulph and Sue Anne Duleive. I bought Ryan’s eBook on it and decided to narrow mine down more 90% of the time. I stick mostly with Twitter and occasionally do other posts on social media, blogging and SEO. Having all 3 topics all the time was just too much for me and my readers.
      You are welcome and thanks for your input and for coming by Sherman. Have an awesome weekend 🙂
      Lisa recently posted…What Happened To Blogging and Having A Great Blog?My Profile

  • Hi Lisa !

    As you have said that there are million of blogs already created. But only few continue to blog only because most of the blogs I go to have the same content like:

    how to use social media
    how to market online

    etc, its just an example. I think blog articles must be teaching some new things. And if everyone stops blogging about how to make money online than it would be better, because there are hundreds of experts out there who have already explained this area in much details.

    So I always hope there is something new to read.

    Have a good day.

    Regards

  • Hey Lisa,

    That’s a wonderful write up about blogging – you have covered the essentials, I must say (including a brief history – smart!).

    In order to blog consistently, one must love the topic – and I can so much relate to this.

    I once started a blog on a niche that was totally alien to me, and after a few months, I just couldn’t create content or connect with the readers of my blog. I felt so powerless and guilty.

    I deleted that blog soon enough. Among the various things that we consider when starting a blog or a business, one thing to seriously consider is our own passion on the topic 🙂

    Thanks for the wonderful share.

    Jane.

    • Hi Jane, thank you. Oh yes, if you don’t love your topics it can be very hard to blog for any length of time. That’s what happens to many that just blog for money. They cannot continue to do it. And it’s okay to take a break, many bloggers feel so guilty when they need a break – sometimes it’s their kids or parents that need help and they just can’t do it all. Readers understand and I’d rather they take a break before shutting down completely. You are welcome Jane and thanks for coming by and sharing your blogging story with us!
      Lisa recently posted…What Happened To Blogging and Having A Great Blog?My Profile

  • Hi Lisa, you just shared a great source of information about blogging. I just discovered your blog and I love this topic. Thanks for the encouragement. This has a huge significance mostly in online businesses. Glad to learn some techniques from you.

  • Blogging has become a prominent activity on the internet. And creating quality content is a hot topic to discuss, individuals, professionals and even small businesses have started blogging over the past few years. The information available on the internet is more or less coming from the blogs all around the web.

  • Hello, Lisa

    A random blog post about the futility of blogging impacted me so adversely, I quickly lost heart and totally stopped blogging. Not only did I stop, I was constantly assailed by all sorts of ensuing negative emotions – I doubted, I disbelieved, I was disheartened, I retreated back into my shell and let the grass grow under my feet – for almost 10 months!

    I was afraid too, and felt like a failure (still feel that way, actually).

    Then Glenn Shepherd recommended reading through your blog – and I literally perked up, Lisa! I could happily spend hours here – it’s hard to quit browsing your valuable content. I’d need to be super-disciplined here, with timer set (repeatedly) to pull me away, hahaha!

    How weird, rather, divinely provident – that for my very first visit, I should land on your post about “What happened to Blogging ….”

    You hit the nail on the head, Lisa – to continue to blog, we must love what we blog about. I started blogging about 15 months ago (in the internet marketing area) and gave up too soon – perhaps I hadn’t dug deeper into what my passion really was!

    Perhaps my experiences were overwhelming and not overly positive! I started with an affiliate marketing program and was encouraged to use the free hosting by the program provider. Unfortunately there was absolutely no support for their free hosting and being a non-techie person, that was a real disaster! I’ve since changed to another program that gives us great support, and have switched over to Hostgator, like you!

    Like you, I too made the mistake of not choosing my domain name correctly. I’ve made special note about renewing for 2 years, as you suggested!

    So now I’ll have to Update to a new blog name, a new theme, and may need to hire someone for all this techie stuff!

    Thanks for this post and the amazing value you give throughout! I’m so glad I plucked up the courage to comment – I’m normally a quiet, shy person. With Glenn Shepherd’s encouragement, here I am! Not for an ulterior motive though, but genuinely just to learn from you – you are undoubtedly an expert, besides being an amazing value-giver!

    • Hi Susette, welcome to Inspire to Thrive. Oh yes, blogging can be quite overwhelming at first. I started with a blogger blog (free) and when I finally after a year or so made the switch to WordPress it was a technical nightmare. I sure learned a lot and now hire someone whenever I have a technical issue brewing. Mayura from Mayura4Ever is my go to guy. ( http://www.mayura4ever.com/p/services.html ) I’m glad you also saw the renewal for at least 2 years. Google will think better of your blog or website. It has always amazed me how many people forget to renew their domain name. Maybe they changed their email address or something.
      I’m still shy with the promoting of my content but I realize I must do it and am working on it now. I don’t think shyness and blogging go together 🙂 Because of blogging I was able to do the eulogy at my mom’s funeral a few years ago. The words came to me easy (from blogging) and I made it through.
      So hopefully blogging will help you overcome your shyness Susette. Wouldn’t that be a great benefit as well?
      Thanks for coming by and have a great day and weekend ahead.
      Lisa recently posted…What Happened To Blogging and Having A Great Blog?My Profile

      • Lisa! I feel so honored and privileged that you responded to my comment, AND visited and commented on my recent blog post. It gave me renewed enthusiasm to continue!

        Hahaha, yes – you’ve come a long, long way if you were ever shy before blogging! I’m taking serious note of your observation that shyness and blogging don’t go together. I’ve got to pull up my socks here, change my personality, or just be plumb brave!

        My deepest sympathies on the loss of your mom a few years ago. I’m sure she tremendously appreciated your eulogy from her special place up there!

        I love your friendly, approachable, happy-go-lucky personality, Lisa! You have a natural knack for instant, warm engagement with your readers. You make me feel wonderful and happy that I connected with you and overcame my fear and shyness.

        Thanks again, Lisa.

          So glad I added some enthusiasm to your blogging. We all can use more of it at times. Thank you for that on my mom. You are welcome Susette and glad I could be of help. Do have a great rest of the week and don’t be shy 🙂
          Lisa recently posted…What Happened To Blogging and Having A Great Blog?My Profile

  • Hi, Lisa; It was interesting to view the very first blog from 1994. I didn’t even get a PC until Dec. 2008, so am way behind the game. That said, blogging has been a great learning experience and I even pulled off setting up a new responsive theme. Unfortunately, the mobile usability needs improvement, but one step at a time. Despite conventional wisdom, my blog will remain niche-free as I have too many interests to narrow it down. Then again, it’s not a business blog, so that’s not so crucial.

  • Comprehensive post, Lisa. Keeping it simple is really important. And I second the need for making your blog mobile ready. I’ve been blogging for almost 10 years now. Smartphones have brought on a major change in the way blogs are viewed.

    • Hi Chicky, welcome to Inspire to Thrive. Oh yes keeping it simple also helps on mobile. I do not like when I’m reading posts on mobile and the pop ups will NOT go away! Very annoying. And the pop-ups come at the end too. I used to use them for a short while but could not keep them as I really did not like them on others posts. Thanks for coming by and have a great weekend.
      Lisa recently posted…What Happened To Blogging and Having A Great Blog?My Profile

  • Hi Lisa, just discovered you! I followed a link from Hussain Omar’s blog to here. I have been blogging since 2006, so I am relatively new to blogging, just over 10 years now. I love my blog, although it has changed a bit from the start up. I went with a free blog first (I guess we probably all do), then bought my own domain name in 2009 and developed from there. One of the big mistakes I made was when I had a time with no time for my blog, I bought a lot of PLR and re-wrote it minimally and published as posts. Of course it is almost all duplicate content, so I do need to look at that and re-write those posts. Something that will take a lot of time!

    Enjoy the journey!

    • Hi Mandy, welcome to Inspire to Thrive. New? You are an oldie compared to most being in blogging for 10+ years. I’ve seen so many bloggers come and go in the six years I’ve been doing it. Even my reader based has changed a lot over the years. I did that too with Blogger and it was quite the challenge switching to my own self-hosted blog. I’m thinking on that too – redoing some old posts and putting new fresh info into them. It will surely take time. Thank you for coming by Mandy and hope to see you here again. Have a wonderful day and week ahead.

  • You covered quite a bit of ground Lisa, I am sure it will help many people.

    I remember when I first started blogging, long time back, Moveabletype was the system to use. Think I even paid like $97 for it. Boy have things changed.

    You sure are right, it’s work to build a great blog, or a blog that can be great. I think the biggest problem is that it takes so much time to promote. I think people give up because of it. Maybe because they don’t see results fast enough? The big money doesn’t roll in.

    Blogging is not my main model, so I don’t blog enough. Have not refreshed it, but do try to improve my content, try to make it more interesting. Always room for improvement. 🙂

    • Hi Ron, how did that Moveabletype system work? Yes, promoting a blog does take lots of time and/or money. It’s not easy especially if you spend a lot of time creating the content. I know that is my own issue here. Yes, many bloggers lose patience before they can reach any level of success, sad – but true. Thanks for coming byRon and providing some interesting input on this one! Have a great rest of the weekend.
      Lisa recently posted…What Happened To Blogging and Having A Great Blog?My Profile

  • Good stuff. You touched upon something I mentioned in a video I did where I said it’s hard to compete with those multi-author blogs, but I was talking about the big ones like HuffPo & Medium. Still, the independent voices will always have a chance to stand out if they can reach the right audience.

    Probably the only thing I don’t, or won’t do is change my theme all the time. With 5 blogs and knowing how much maintenance they take (as you know about my mobile speed stuff lol), along with not having any kind of idea what I might want or like other than what I have now, it’s just not happening. It’s kind of like that woman I’m married to changing the living room around every couple of years while my office has been the same for 11 years lol

I’m with you – I haven’t completely changed my blog’stheme in 5 years but have updated some of it here and there. Why mess with it if it works right? I just like changing the colors up from time to time on the social buttons and such. I’ve also cleaned up my sidebars a lot to keep it simple. And elimianted ads that only distract readers. Thanks for coming by Mitch and I’ll have to read that first blog piece of yours from September 🙂 Happy October!

  • Hi Lisa,

    Nice little post, great to see how blogging came to be and the intricate things involved to make a great blog work well.

    It can be completely overwhelming at first for newbies I think, so much to learn and things change and evolve constantly.

    Despite everything involved with blogging, it’s meant to be fun, and I think blogging over the years has become a little bit too serious at times.

    You can have a great blog, you can blog for a purpose and provide value to help people, and increase business exposure and all the rest of it, but I think it should still be fun.

    Have a great weekend Lisa.

  • Hi Lisa,
    I am very much curious about narrow niche blogs. Even I see a great advantage on traffic driving as well as user-friendly to have such blogs. And I truly wanted to try that.
    And on another point, you made about the domain expiry date, I thought domain age matters and expiry date never came into my mind. Thanks a lot….
    Have a great day and enjoy the journey of blogging.

  • Hi Lisa,

    You definitely shared some great points here. It’s easy to get a blog started, learning how to drive traffic and connect with other bloggers but if ther is no passion or love for their niche, I can only assume it would be a short lived blogging career.

    I agree with having multi-authors. Like Harleena mentioned, it frees us up to work on other projects and it gives our visitors a chance to read other points of view within our niche.

    Thanks for the great tips! Hope you’re having a great week so far!

  • Hey Lisa,

    Blogging has quickly become one of the most popular ways of communicating and spreading information and news.The internet is exploding with growth right now. More people than ever are online. This explosion in growth means more potential readers for your blog. In short, there is no better time than today to start blog. If we’re part of a business, company or organization, our blog should be related to the product or service which we provide, or the cause we promote.

    The visitor who lands on the outdated or irrelevant information will hit the close button and move on to other options. We just lost one valuable visitor who could have become our reader or even our subscriber. It is important for us to realize that at any given time, there may be an entire different group of audience reading and scanning social media networks.

    Editing the posts with new ideas. Trends and interests of audience keep on changing with time. We need to add some interesting and new facts to our older posts and this will give new life to our existing content in the eyes of search engines as well. Eventually, thanks for sharing your worthy information with us.

First of all, I really like your title. “What Happened to Blogging and Having a Great Blog?” somehow connects with me, and I don’t get that often, even though I read a lot of stuff on the web all day. Secondly, I like many of your suggestions, including guest blogging and keeping your blog simple. You can have all the bells and whistles you want, but a simple page with useful and interesting content is what people really want to see. Good post all in all, and I’ll be coming back to read more posts and be a part of the conversation here on your blog.

  • Blogging is one of the best ways to build relationship with readers and love the background of blogging it’s definitely interesting.

  • Hi Lisa,

    Happy to see you blogging about blogging! 😛 You have shared some very great and valid points for getting started with blogging. I know I have tried to quit many times and just can’t bring myself to do it. I just step away for a bit and come back refreshed. I’m a huge fan of self-hosting as well as, WordPress.com. WordPress.com has changed over the years, added upgrades, and if you follow the rules there is almost 99.99% sure that your blog won’t be removed. Self-hosting can be so very overwhelming for bloggers and unless they have a good mentor or learning course, they may get too frustrated and give up.

    Anywho……. I remember my old blog and having contributors. It was a great way to add more value to my blog and attracting a larger audience. Definitely great ideas!

    Thanks for sharing with us!

  • Hi Lisa,

    Thanks for the shout out!

    Narrow that niche. Big time. I see folks on Quora and Warrior ask how to tackle multi niche blogs. Do doctors try to become lawyers at the same time? Nope. They specialize, devoting their attention and energy to 1 task/niche, and where they devote their attention and energy grows steadily over time. I had so many niches on my old blog and struggled to stay afloat but things came to me easily when I created Blogging From Paradise because I chose to do 1 thing well.

    Now if I publish a post it’s 100% related to sharing smart blogging tips. I may work in – OK I WILL work in LOL – my travel images and sometimes stories because this aligns with my brand, but it’s always smart blogging tips.That core message helped me land features on neat blogs. Specializing wins again!

    Thanks again Lisa 🙂

    Even though blogging may seem over saturated and crowded there is always room for more excellent bloggers. It is easy to get started and with a consistent approach you can grow your site and your audience.
    Having multiple authors is a great way to share ideas and gain/give exposure.
    I like the way you used Twitter to gather opinions for this post. Such a simple way to interview.

  • Hi Lisa,

    That’s a pleasant surprise!! I didn’t know you’d asked me this question on Twitter for a post 🙂

    Well yes, when we need to diversify and widen our horizons, there is absolutely no harm in making changes to invite guests over to your blog or tuning your blog to a multi-authored one. This gives us time to work on our new projects as well, which you’d soon know of – and work carries on with my new blog as well. Having a variety of voices of course, adds to the benefit of your readers.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead 🙂
