3 Skills you Need to Have for Blogging

Blogging is like any other task if you know how to blog it’s easy and it you don’t, it will be as tough as walking in the Sand. Like any other profession, Blogging requires you to have certain skills to get your job done easily and smartly. There are people who often complain that Blogging is not for me, as it’s tough or they don’t have something which requires every Blogger to have. Believe me, you are wrong. The first and only thing which you need to have for Blogging is writing skills.

Now, you need not be a Blog Writer like OM Malik, Darren Rowse or anyone else, but you need to have a writing style that everyone can understand and connect to. That’s one skill and similarly, there are two other key skills which you need to have as a Blogger.

In Blogging a good blogger writes some articles, and insert images, videos, and many other things to describe the written article. Now the question is that is it much for your visitors, for your website?? I’ll say no because it needs many other skills to write an article for getting huge visitors on your website. What these skills are?? Many of between us don’t know and many others know but they don’t want to do implement on it.

If you want to write a traffic taking article and want thousands of likes on that so follow the skills which I am going to tell you. This is just for you and your visitors. If visitors like your article so most of them again visit your blog for such a great article they read before and all credit of that great article goes just to you. This can easily increase your visitors and if visitors increases so there is huge chance of increase of your AdSense income.

Blogging Skills you Should have from Day 1:

1. READING SKILLS

A good blogger should have a good reader before. As we know reading is a big part of blogging and an essential part also. A blogger should read his article with a great understanding from books from other blogs or websites until he gets enough knowledge about that. Then after this, he should try to write that topic in points that he made from reading from others, then he should write that topic in detail with the help of his own points. At last after modification, he should publish the article that he wrote in his own word.

Reading skills not only help you to increase your understanding of a subject but also give you more insight and viewpoints, which is very important when you are taking a role of Blogger. Because, a Blogger task is to communicate the right news and viewpoint and with just your thought, you might end up giving biased opinion.

2. LISTENING SKILLS

The second skill you need to write an excellent article is listening skill. A blogger should have to be a listener, not just hearer. There is a big difference between listening and hearing. In listening a person listen something carefully with a great concentration of understanding. But in hearing a person just hear the topic without any concentration. It can not possible that a listener will not learn something new from listening. So try to be a listener first.

If a blogger listens the topic, so he/she gains enormous knowledge, so it is now so easy to write a great article about the topic which the blogger listened.

3. WRITING SKILL

After gaining knowledge by reading and the listening a blogger should have to write the article, for this he should have excellent writing skills. The writing is primary and essential part of a blog. If writing is not good, so there is less chance of visitors flow and significant income.

For a good writing skill a blogger should firstly concentrate on his words then concentrate on his sentence structure and at last should concentrate in his paragraph. If these all are properly written and there is no grammatical mistake( For correcting misspelling click right click on the misspelt word)  in the paragraph then blogger should have to use images, videos, etc. Then after doing all these essential things he have to read his article once again. If it seems correct then he should publish it.

What if you don’t have these skills?

Now, as I mentioned, it’s important to have all these three skills to be a good blogger but they are just not the “ONLY” skills you need. You need to have other things like good communication, presentation, management and other skills required to be a better blogger.

Many of you might be lacking any of these skills but let me put this question straight on your face “How hard it is to learn something new”?

Gaining a new skill requires practice, effort and you need to form a habit. You might be one of those who doesn’t like reading till now or maybe your reading is more like just changing the pages or clicking from one link to others. If yes, all you need to do is make a plan and have a proper strategy to acquire these skills. Depending upon your grasping power, you may learn new things in no-time or it may take longer period, but by the end you will have it.

The key is you need to start and there is no better time than “NOW”.

My strategy is to make an action list and work on it. For example, I lack in particular skills like English grammar, use of punctuation, taking notes when reading a noble and so on. When you make a list of problems, you would know at least what you are lacking and area where you need to put more energy and time. Do research on the Internet or take advice from someone good and take constructive actions to work on all the area where you need to put effort on. Needless to say “One thing at a time”.

If a blogger follows all the point which I mentioned in the above. So it can be very helpful for their Blogging Career. A blogger should also have two important qualities first to learn and the second one is to share. If a blogger has both qualities so one day he will surely make history in the blogging field.

    1. Why should someone restrict himself. Let’s do the way probloggers work. With all respect writing and reading are quite the basic skills that you should have a blogger. What is the point of communicating some useful stuff, when the users’ don’t find ease in reading.

  2. I couldn’t agree more with your post, these three skills are imperative to begin your blogging but as you forward, entrepreneurship skills are required to manage blog just like any other business. Your ability to look into the fine prints does influence your decisions and therefore, have an impact on your blogging career.

    1. Look Akhilendra you are right and I’m also agree with your points but if you have not skills that I talked above. So you can not write an single paragraph so how could you call you a blogger. These skills are must and basic for Blogging….

      1. Thanks for your reply, just a short note, we also need to make sure that our interaction must be non-offensive. I am not sure if it is intended or not but statements like “So you can not write an single paragraph so how could you call you a blogger.” should be avoided.

  3. Amazing stuff!
    Really a very useful article for all the bloggers.
    I’m totally impressed.
    Thanks for the great Share. πŸ™‚

    1. Mark with these skills you must be a hard worker because without hard working these skills didn’t work.. πŸ™‚
