Blogging is a perfect world to have existed on the internet. And it is those successful bloggers who are the finest bloggers t have grace the blogosphere.

Success is not just about taking action but taking the necessary action towards your goal. – ADEREMI DARE

Blogging is tough and not predictable but with the right help you will make it in blogging. Here is the most asked question in blogging that will help you build a successful blog.

1. Is there new Content available

NO new content

One thing that is very important and define every blog is the ability to produce content on a regular basis. The content you produce is what define your target traffic, consistency and yourself.

However, the question that most new bloggers ask is how to create a new content that no one has written before. But the truth is “there is no new content”.

Yes, there is no new content. What do you want to write about that someone have not written? What you have to do to create content with uniqueness.

But wait, There is new content on the internet

Yeah, you can create a  new content by giving out what you do yourself. Maybe in sense of case study or your experience. Always remember product may be the same, but experience always differ.

You can also create a completely new content by creating a completely new product.

2. How often should you update your blog?

How often to publish new post

In blogging, posting on a regular basis is of high priority. The amount of your post per week depends entirely on your chosen topic and your personality. But you must not make your blog boring and keep it alive as much as possible.

Your post per week is entirely your’s but you must consider your readers, they are your blog. But in my opinion, you must post at least twice per week and also keep in touch with your readers. If not, you should maintain a posting schedule.

If you write eight posts on an average in a month, publish two posts a week on selected date. This also helps in faster indexing, as Google will set crawl rate accordingly. <Source>

3. What should be the ideal length of your blog posts?

This is the most argumentative topic out there. Some bloggers believe that long content convert best while some believe that short content helps the reader get the solution straight.

But how long your content depends highly on your topic. In blogging your content should not be less the 500 – 750 words.

However, I prefer long content in the range of 1,000-2,000 words. The fact behind it is that when your content is long, your blog post will be detailed which helps readers a lot. But you must not be obsessed with how long it is, just make sure it delivers your point clearly.

If you love data, from SEO point of view the ideal length if 2000+ words. Here is a chart by SERPIQ where they evaluated top 10 search results to come up avg. article length from SEO perspective:

And don’t forget, Content quality is highly important for a successful blog

. How can I get Loyal Traffic

Traffic is what everyone wants.

It is what keeps your blog alive.

It is what keeps your spirit high as a blogger knowing somewhere, someone will hear your voice, and a number of your readers determines how long your voice will go.

But the question here is not how do you get a thousand readers in 10 days but how loyal is that little traffic you have.

Do they trust you?

Do they want to keep returning to your blog?

Can they do a day without visiting your blog?

That the kind of readers every blogger want and how you acquire them is what trouble most new bloggers.

But you can get loyal traffic by

5. How do I turn blog traffic into subscribers

The thing here is that nobody will sign up to receive emails from you except they truth you, someone recommend you to them, they are completely loyal to you.  You should read How to Get More Blog Readers? [9 Strategies for 2020].

When building subscribers list there is no magic button, it just happens.

So when you have a regular reader on your blog, you have to build your trust in them and give them an offer that is irresistible. That way you will not only have subscribers but loyal subscribers.

6. Can new Blog Make Money Instantly

The answer to this question is, YES. But it is important not to focus on making money instantly because it can kill your blog and harm your reputation online.

When you build a blog, it must be on a long term basis (plan) which will make it a stream of income for you, make a good reputation and help readers.

In short, making money should not be your priority but your last and this will allow you do more like a blogger. Here are two guides to give you a jump start on when to add advertising:

7.  What should my First Post be

This is where most bloggers do their mistakes. Your first post should describe a lot about you and how your blog will be like. Remember no one knows who you are.

Most new bloggers start off with either a review post to make instant money or a blog post with a lot of affiliate links, but this will only harm your blog and reputation. So just make it simple and clear. Tell them who you are, what your topic is and how you are going to stay in touch.

Before everything else, ensure you have your blog About page up & running. This page is most viewed page if done correctly & here you can know about the importance of about page.

8. Which theme is the best for my Blog

Which WordPress theme to use
  • Save

Your blog theme as a lot of effect on how you blog, your search engine ranking, your visitors and other components on your blog.

Most bloggers love Genesis Framework and child theme from Studiopress perhaps that what I use myself.

But I just found a theme that can make a difference and makes me want to change my theme. It is Thrivetheme and I really love their themes and plug-ins. You can visit their website for more information.

9. Should I accept Guest Post on my Blog

If your blog is new, then no one will want to guest post on it. It simple, it does not have any benefit to them. Bloggers guest post because they need more exposure, more subscribers and more backlinks.

Nobody will want to guest post here on ShoutMeLoud if not because of the amount of work Harsh Agrawal put into building this blog to the highest level possible

Before considering whether to accept guest post on your blog, you must have the offer to give out.

10. Where do I Find help

I have always say that a man is no island of knowledge and when it comes to blogging, you just can’t survive by yourself.

You will need help to scale your success. And when it comes to finding help, I normally find it in eBooks, from blogs and other resources but the most effective way to get help is to contact influential bloggers within your niche.

They will be willing to help you out. You just have to shoot out an email to them.

You can also find help from:

  • YouTube
  • Forum
  • Google Search
  • Blogs
  • And Guest Post

Bottom line…

Although there are still a lot of questions out there but this is the most commonly asked questions by newbie bloggers. Let hear your thought in the comment box. You can also ask some new questions, and I will be more than willing to answer them.

  1. Great blog post and I totally agree with all questions.. Built the blog around the niche you love and can put passion into each blog post. The money will soon come along in do time. It takes lots of time to make decent money with a blog.

    Ya can’t snap a finger and you make money.

  2. Thanks for this great post but I think that most beginner bloggers ask the question when will my blog start making money I think that most newbie bloggers don’t know that the first and foremost thing is to build traffic and loyal readers after you will achieve this money will follow you believe me friends I am blogging since one year but I have not yet thinking to start affiliate marketing even though I am getting handsome traffic but my main priority to win the trust of my readers then I will start my luck in affiliate marketing! Keep up the good work

    1. Hi ROHIT,

      It great to hear that from you. In fact it makes me wanna connect with you and share things together.

      I always tell new bloggers that your readers are first and above any other thing. When you achieve the gain of your readers trust then every other things follows and what I believe is that any slight mistake can damage your reputation. Afterall there are thousands of blogs out there.

      Hope you have a wonderful blogging journey.

  3. I wanaa add one more question..
    My blog was down for 3 weeks and now all high ranking articles gone from first page of google. No articles are ranking in google…After recovery they are ranking to third page or second page.. So should I continue with blog or move to new blog. I mean will it be worth to continue with it? and It was 1 year old.

    1. Hi Bhim,

      I am really sorry to get to you late but the answer to your question is pretty straight forward.

      It is totally your decision to make.

      But I think you should continue with the same blog and make sure you contact your hosting support for more uptime or you move that same blog to another hosting service that have more uptime and features then your current one.

      And why your ranking was gone is because Google likes to have only valid website that will truly help searchers but I will like to tell you that you have to value your readers first before search engines

      I hope this helps out.

  6. Hello,
    Very informative post. All your answers are quite right and useful to me.
    Thank you for sharing such a great post…

  7. Your very right Aderemi that there is no new content, but there is new perspective. Also, in the beginning, I wouldn’t shy away from a bit of solid self liking either. Some people think that is weird that others like themselves or what they do. And I say, well, if I didn’t like it, I wouldn’t be doing it.

    1. Hi James,

      It great to hear your thought. Building a solid foundation for blog through content in your own perspective is the best way to engage with your readers.

      Thanks for your comment.

  8. Hi ADEREM,

    Really loved reading this piece of article.Very informative.You almost cleared all my questions.And you made few beautiful points like there is no Fresh content.Yes i do believe that there is nothing like new or fresh content unless you are Scholar in research.whatever we gonna write that is already available across the internet. Then the only way we can make our content unique and intriguing is by writing our own experience not the one we heard, read or never experienced. Because many people might be using the same product but every single individual attitude towards it is different. May be narrating in our way we can make it unique and intriguing.

    Thanks for this post.

  9. Hi Aderemi Dare!

  10. Definitely love these question and it’s great to have them. Making money at first could be a major mistake element to focus on.

  11. Sir,
    I have started the blog “http://www.bornengr.com/” but I found that the same title website is already exist “https://www.borntoengineer.com/” now I am confused that is there any copyright or trademark issue, or can be happen any problem in future to me about this? Please help me to overcome this confusion.

    Thanks Regard.

  12. Sometimes I wonder about the whole content thing. It seems I’m rehashing what’s already been said. Worse, there are times when I feel like I’m re-doing my old posts (not consciously). But like you said – new content isn’t really a thing. Even if I blog about my thoughts and experiences, what I write today will be different than what I wrote last month. Things change and sometimes you come up with a new perspective.
