18 Lessons I’ve Learned about Blogging

Miscellaneous Blog Tips 226 comments

In November 2002 I first heard the word blog after a mate e-mailed me a link and said I should consider starting one. Within 24 hours I’d created my first blog (a blogspot blog that doesn’t exist today). Since that time I’ve run 20+ blogs (most have survived, some have not) and I’ve also transitioned from hobby blogger to part time blogger to full time blogger.

Along the way have been many challenges, milestones and celebrations so today I thought I’d do some reflection and create a list of things I wish someone had sat me down and told me in the early days.

Here’s my top 18 Lessons Learned in my 3 years of blogging. Write your own ‘lessons’ list and let us know about it in comments below. If you enjoy this list you might also like to subscribe to my newsletter to keep up to date on more posts like this on blogging.:

1. Be Lucky

LuckI’m increasingly becoming aware that despite the many hours of hard work that I’ve put into building up my business that many others work just as hard and are much more talented than I am but do not enjoy the success that I’ve been fortunate to have. While I don’t believe that luck is the main ingredient in my own story I am convinced that in combination with some of the other things I’ll talk about below it has been of real importance.

The luck I’ve had along the way has included just happening to bump into the right people at the right time (on many occasions), discovering ad systems that just happened to work well on my blogs, starting successful blogs quite by accident, getting links from bigger blogs that led to a snowball effect of incoming links from elsewhere through to choosing the right partners for different projects. I could write many thousands of words on the luck I’ve had but I’ll not bore you with the details except to say that I’ve been a lucky boy.

The key I’ve found with luck is to run with it and to make every lucky instance last as long as possible. So when you strike it lucky enjoy it but also ask yourself ‘how can I capitalise on my good fortune?’

2. Work Hard

Hard WorkOf course the saying that goes ‘you make your own luck’ has some truth to it. Gary Player once said - “The harder I practice, the luckier I get”

I’m a strong believer that to be successful you need to be willing to work hard. While there are plenty of people selling ‘easy money’ on the web I’m yet to find a method of money making that doesn’t have at least some element of work to it.

Success in many areas of life comes out of discipline and hard work. Getting your body in shape, having good relationships, succeeding at study etc all take some level of commitment and work. Work alone is definitely NOT everything (I’ve seen many hard working bloggers who have not had success) but it is one element that I think is essential.

If you want to get to places you’ve never been before you need to be willing to do things you’ve never done before. This sometimes means leaving one’s comfort zone and knuckling down for some hard work.


3. Use the Power of Exponential Growth

Earnings-TmI’m not sure that that heading is the right words to describe this but I can’t think of any others that begin to describe the way in which blogging has the ability to snowball. Perhaps it’s a ‘Tipping Point’ thing but as I look at the last three years in terms of blog traffic, earnings, profile and opportunities I see that the first 18 months were very very slow. Growth was definitely there from month to month but because the numbers were so small it didn’t really feel like I was going anywhere.

The wonderful thing about exponential growth is that if you stick at it for the long term it’s a very powerful force. I look over at the poll I’m running this month and see that 27% of bloggers who responded are making $10 or less a month from Adsense and I know it sounds so little.

In reality it’s not that much but it’s more than I was making 2 years ago from blogging.

Here’s a calculation that I kept in my mind in the early days.

If that $10 a month increases by 20% every month in a year you’ll be earning $89.16 per month at the end of the year. Of course that sounds small for a year’s work and I’m sure many bloggers would give up at that point but lets take it further.

If earnings continued to rise by 20% per month for another 12 months and you begin to see the power of exponential growth with a figure of $794.96 per month. Do it for another year and the figure is $7088.01 per month.

Do those figures with the figure of 30% growth per month and the figure after 12 months is $232.98 per month, after two years its $5428.00 and after three years it’s $126,462 per month! You get the picture. Now I don’t want to promise you 30% growth per month for three years straight but as I’ve written before, the power of exponential growth in conjunction with hard work and luck is possible - it’s my story. I see each post I write as an investment in the future and something that has the potential to earn money for me not just today but over the long term.

4. Differentiate Yourself

42970000 04Eede87F7 M-1Part of the ‘Luck’ I’ve had is that I started blogging three years ago and not three weeks ago.

The Blogosphere has changed in many ways - some for the better (the technology and tools these days are much more advanced) and some for the worse. The downside of starting out now is that for every topic there seems to be many blogs already - the web is becoming more and more congested as people discover personal publishing. It’s also become a more competitive business on some levels and in some segments some of the co-operative spirit of blogging has begun to fade as people build their empires.

All of this means that if you want to build a blog that is a runaway success you need to consider how your blog will differentiate itself from all the others out there. While not every blog needs to reach ‘runaway success’ status for you to make a living from blogging (20 reasonably successful blogs can do just as well as 1 amazing one) even lower level blogs need to find ways to stand out from the crowd.

5. Provide Value

DiamondsThis almost goes without saying but I’ll say it none the less. A key question every blogger should ask when starting out is around the idea of what value their blog will give readers. As I look at the year ahead I’ve been asking this question about some of my own blogs. It’s easy to go a bit stale and so reviewing the value that you’re adding is an important part of keeping things fresh.

Value can be about many things including entertainment, education, community, information, companionship etc Without it you’re not likely to get people returning to your blog, linking to it or participating in it over time.

6. Target a Niche

Target-1I remember after about 6 months of blogging having a discussion with my readers (I only had the one blog at the time) about whether I should continue to write a blog that was very general in topic or whether I should start a few new ones. I took a poll and they were pretty split over what I should do. I wish at that point I’d started new blogs but out of fear of losing a few readers I decided to plough on with a blog that covered incredibly diverse topics and that increasingly frustrated more and more readers who shared one interest with me but who were not interested in the other things I was writing about.

Moving to a niche approach where I developed blogs around more tightly focussed topics was where my blogging went to another gear and it was probably one of the most defining moments in my business.

Read more about the benefits of niche blogging.

7. Diversify

Diversity-1This connects with my niche blogging point well but goes beyond just having multiple blogs on different niches. It’s really about taking the age old advice of not putting all your eggs in one basket.

While there is some real sense in focussing all your energy on one excellent blog there is some risk involved in this approach.

So much of blogging is out of the blogger’s control and there are numerous problems that could lead to a one blog strategy ending in disaster (these include search engine re-indexing, hacking, loss of data, character assassination, competition, the topic becoming obsolete etc). All good financial planners would advise not to invest in one type of investment but to spread the risk - I’d advise the same with blogging.

Diversification is not just about starting numerous blogs. It’s also about exploring a variety of income streams. i.e. if all your income is from AdSense it might be worth looking at other ad systems, affiliate programs, consulting work etc.

8. Don’t Spread Self too Thin

Thin-1Of course take my points on hard work, niches and diversification to the extreme and a danger is developing so many blogs that none end up being remarkable enough to develop a readership and profile.

Balance is important so diversify to the point where it won’t decrease the value that you want to offer readers. This will vary from blogger to blogger depending upon many factors including available time, interests, personality, topic chosen etc. For some of you it will mean two blogs, for others it will mean 20 or more.

9. Have a Backup Plan

Backup-PlanI’ve written on numerous occasions about the e-mails I regularly get from people telling me that they are quitting their job to become a full time blogger without much thought to how they’ll pay their bills in the year or three that it might take to build up their blogging to pay a reasonable wage.

The moral of the story is that it does take time and in the mean time you need a back up plan and some sort of way to help you transition into your blogging business. Very few bloggers are able to go full time quickly - you might need another job (I had numerous other jobs for over 2 years) or some other form of income to keep you going for a couple of years. In fact the fact is that some bloggers work their butts off for a couple of years and still don’t have anything to show for it at the end. So be responsible and see ProBlogging as having amazing potential but as being something that has no guarantees.

I strongly recommend having a backup income while you transition into blogging and to have in the back of your mind a backup plan for if things go wrong. I’ve been developing a number of other skills and interests over the past year simply because I don’t know how long blogging will last as a full time income. While I hope and expect it will continue to work out for me I know I have a few different options at hand to down the track if it all goes pear shaped.

10. Be Light on Your Feet

Light-On-Feet-2One of the things I love about being a solo-entrepreneur is that I have a business that is flexible enough to take opportunities very quickly as they come up. When a wave of luck kicks in after all your hard work you need to be able to position yourself to surf the wave. If you’re too cautious or have a model that is too rigid you might just miss the opportunities as they pass by.

I’ve been caught napping a number of times in this way but have also had a couple of times where I’ve taken the opportunities and reaped the benefits. Of course I’m not saying one should throw caution out the window, but try to build something that has checks and balances that isn’t going to strangle the life giving opportunities that might come your way.

11. Relationships are Key

RelationshipI was attracted to Blogging in the first place partly because of the way in which it enabled me (a shy guy) to connect with others interested in similar things to me. From the very beginning I enjoyed the relational nature of blogging but also the way in which it allowed me to retreat into my introversion from time to time.

As I look at the things that have been most successful for me in my blogging most of them have had the key ingredient of another person (or more than one) to either help me or partner with me. Most recent is my partnerships with Andy with six figure blogging and Jeremy, Duncan and Shai with b5media but the relationships go back much further than that and are many and varied. I try to put time aside every day to seek out and build relationship with key bloggers that I’d like to work with in some ways - it’s amazing how these connections pay off in many unexpected ways.

12. Establish Boundaries

BoundariesOne of the first blog tips that I ever wrote was on setting boundaries for your blogging. The post itself was pretty naively written at the time - as I reflect upon it I’m not sure I really knew what I was talking about - it was a nice theory at the time. In more recent times I’ve come to see that the point of those I was quoting in the post was incredibly valid and wise.

Boundaries are very important on a number of levels.

Firstly they are important on a security level and for your own well-being. I know this personally from recent events. Writing in the public domain can have it’s own risks associated with it. Work out ahead of time what information you will and won’t reveal about yourself, your personal details and those of your family and stick to those boundaries.

Secondly it’s also wise on a readership and niche definition level. Go changing what you will and won’t write about in terms of topics too often and you run the risk of disillusioning your readership. While variety in topic and voice can add spice to your blog you also will want some consistency in your approach.

13. Don’t read your Own Press

PressI recently saw an interview with Elizabeth Taylor who was asked if she read much of what people write about her in the media. Here answer was no - she didn’t listen to or ready anything any written or said about her good or bad. Her explanation as to why was (paraphrased)

‘If you listen to the good things people say about you you might just start believing them. If you listen to the bad things people say about you you might just start believing them’

While I wouldn’t go quite as far as Elizabeth Taylor in saying don’t read anything written about you (after all conversation and engagement with others is what blogging is built around) I would encourage bloggers to hold lightly to the opinion of others about you.

It’s easy to become big headed when people rave about how great you and your blogs are to the point where you end up being a complete jerk and think you’re the messiah but on the flip side it’s also easy to become disillusioned and depressed when they rant about and attack you. Part of the skill of being a good blogger that comes over time is that ability to know when to take on board what others are saying about you and when to leave it. It is important to listen to the praise and critiques of others but try to keep them in perspective or it could lead to your downfall.

14. Beware of Hype

HypeControversy, Sensationalism, Big Claims and Rants are all very useful tools available to bloggers. Many a new blog has found itself in the spotlight (either by design or accident) after a post where the blogger created a stir with one (or more) of these elements.

I don’t have an issue with using these types of posts myself from time to time but I would advise that it’s very difficult to sustain a blog built solely upon these elements. Blog readers are a fairly fickle bunch and will come read your post that generates a stir but unless they find something of genuine value in your blog over time they’ll probably not hang around too long.

By all means use these tactics to get your attention (but have thick skin because creating a stir can cause a backlash) but you’ll want your blog to have something else going for it to make a lasting impression.

Also keep in mind the story of the ‘boy who cried wolf’. Hyped posts might work once or even twice, but they tend to lose their impact over time unless you work hard to make them fresh.

15. Get a Life

Get A LifeI remember someone once telling me that ‘no one ever gets to their death bed and wishes that they’d spent more time at work’. I remember nodding and making affirming noises. You see at the time I was a lazy slob, didn’t enjoy hard work and never spent much time doing any.

Of course these days I actually DO enjoy my work and the temptation is to spend a lot of time doing it. I love blogging for it’s creativity, relationships as well as the good pay packet that enables me to do things for others and I could quite easily spend a lot more time doing it. As a result I spend considerable time working at my business.

But I’ve also learned that unless I take time off the rest of life tends to fall apart at the seams. Not only that but the quality of work I produce suffers after 16 hours in front of the computer and improves drastically when I sleep more than 5 hours and interact with real people or get into one of my hobbies (go figure). While I love it, blogging will still be there tomorrow and I have a much more balanced approach to it than I once did.

16. Make Mistakes

MistakesIt doesn’t feel that good when you stuff up or make a mistake but as I look back on the last year or so it’s the times when I’ve blundered that opportunities have often flowed. The key is to learn from the mistake, to make the most of what follows and to see it as an opportunity to improve what you do and make the most of any publicity that comes out of it.

Elbert Hubbard got it write when he wrote - ‘The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.’

Learn to see mistakes as opportunities.

17. Be Yourself

Darren-Rowse-4One of the temptations of starting a blog is to spend more time trying to emulate other bloggers than establishing your own voice and style. While there are a lot of lessons to be learned from other blogs there is a lot to be said for developing a strong blogging identity of your own.

There are a number of reasons for this that come to mind:

  1. Transparency - readers are an insightful bunch and will quickly find you out if you’re not being genuine
  2. Sustainability - it’s difficult to sustain writing in a voice and personality that is not your own. Be yourself and you’ll last a lot longer.
  3. Consistency - regular readers of a blog overtime take on a sense of ownership of a blog. When you chop and change your writing to emulate and please others you’ll end up disillusioning the people who make your blog what it is (your readers). Be yourself and you’re more likely to be consistent (I’m not suggesting be monotonous - you can still be creative and surprising - just do it in your own style and you’ll be right).

18. There are No Rules

No RulesLists like these always finish with a point like this that says ignore all of the above - but that’s not the point of this point (can you have a point of a point?).

All of the above is essential stuff (for me) but the thing I love about blogging is that it’s such a new and emerging technology that there are very few things that you can’t do or shouldn’t try.

Push the boundaries, experiment with the model you’ve got, try new tools and techniques and have a blast doing it. The worst thing you can do really is make a mistake - and we all know that they rock!

  • Great list, Darren!

    I will definitely take it to heart. Especially on targetting a niche - I’ve been thinking a lot about whether a blog about “Java Technologies” is too wide, and maybe it could be spread out to several smaller blogs.

    My main fear at the moment is that I am posting 1-2 posts a day at that blog, and I can’t be sure smaller blogs would enjoy high update rate, and if that’s bad anyway.

    I already set myself to read your references on niches, so if you answer these questions there, I would probably know the answer in a short while. :)

    Aviad.

  • Goodness you are so utterly, consistently wise.
    I’ve been blogging for about a year now (loving every minute of it!), but only recently discovered enternetusers (the day I decided to take myself seriously) and I can’t begin to tell you the impact your writing is having on my work.

    Point seventeen is the one that resounds most loudly with me: all to often I find myself trying to emulate someone bigger and better than myself, (I am not Martha stewart, I am not Martha Stewart…) and yet is at the times when I am totally and utterly me that my work achieves what I am aiming for: that is recognition that I authentically believe in what I write and want to create enthusiam for something I love.

    Thank you.

  • Darren, I know that every post here is filled with thanks for giving this great, grounded wisdom from your years of blogging and these posts are well deserved.

    When you write about exponential growth I know and understand exactly what you were thinking and hope that my mindset with little Google paychecks can be as strong as yours in the two earlier lean years.

    Often providing value is one of the hardest things to do on a consistent basis, especially when you can easily just copy and article and add some of your own thoughts - you so very little of that I notice which makes the work much harder.

    Thank you again for everything you have taught me over the last six months and thank you again today for helping inspire.

  • I’ve been blogging for 6 months.
    I’m wondering when this progression you talk at point 3 stops or regulates itself. As we know, the blogosphere is limited in readership, therefore traffic cannot grow indefinetly. Right now, my blog traffic of unique users has doubled last month and it probably going to double that amount again this month as I just yesterday reached last month’s results. Does the curve hit a certain amount of hits and stays there? Does it goes down again?

    What is a blogger to expect?

  • brem - every blog is so different so it’s difficult to predict. Some blogs grow steadily every month - others are more up and down. In fact some don’t grow - I guess what I’m talking here about is my overall business which overall has grown in those ways.

    I’m not making promises - but if you keep working your butt off and get a little luck things should continue to grow. Of course for me there is a ceiling coming with how much work I can actually do as one person - the challenge then becomes to develop systems that others can help me with.

  • Darren,

    YOu should name this post as a 18 commandment of a Succesful blogger. it’s a good lesson too.

  • Hi [or should that be, Thanks] Darren,

    I think I have lurked around here for too long without giving credit where it is due.

    To say that I have benefitted from the posts and the responses on enternetusers would be the understatement of the year. And I haven’t been blogging that long.

    The package of information you presented in the 18 lessons, Darren, could easily be repackaged and sold for the benefit of bloggers irrespective of their stage of development.

    I regret the two incidents in the recent past where you had to take a few days off due to feeling unwell and the most recent incident.

    From my perspective, coming from the other side of the globe [Barbados, West Indies], I was always hoping you would have had a secret address since whenever you have to admit success in a public forum, there will always be an element of risk.

    Thanks again for the quality information and while I am not a camera buff by any stretch of the imagination, I find myself slowly warming to the hobby. I wonder if perusing your Digital Camera site has anything to do with it….?

    I am very new to blogging and have been really inspired by your story as a full time blogger. I have found your articles on lesson learnt on blogging very useful. I currently have to blog sites http://www.worldcupzone.blogspot.com/ and http://www.propertyinvestoruk.blogspot.com.

    18 Lessons I’ve Learnt about Blogging Most of which apply just as well to real life…..

  • HI, Darren , nice story ; hope i learn and apply some of these. I was really wondering about what you say about selecting a niche and spreading yourself out too thin. Though initially i planned to start out on affiliate and internet marketing, i realized that there were millions and i would stand no chance. Therefore recenlty i started this blog which focuses on computer software, hardware and web services(marketing). i hope to do this in a balanaced way. Am i spreading out too much into abroad topic? ANy tips?

  • I started a blog last fall and quickly came upon a dilemma. How much information should I give out on my site..

    I did a story about an incident I witnessed where a store owner refused to a sell a 16-year-old condoms. I was all righteously indignant about the incident and was two seconds from putting up a picture of the man’s store. It’s definitely a controversial story especially with the whole issue around pharmacists denying birth control to women.

    I thought about how I would feel and decided not to put his information in. I’m glad I didn’t. I went from unknown blog to mega-traffic in just a few weeks thanks to some word of mouth about the story from friends. I got few comments but TONS of email, some demanding to know where the store was. They wanted to confront the store owner, picket his store, all manner of things. I felt what he did was wrong but no one deserves that type of spotlight.

    Well anyway, no sooner than it all picked up, the hype died down, the fighters found another cause and my blog is back to being fairly unknown with a few visitors now and again. It taught me a valuable lesson about people, hype, anger and how what’s a hot button issue today is forgotten tomorrow.

    In the middle of all this, I did a Google search for Blogging Responsibly. I read a lot of articles and I came aross a website (I don’t know where it is or I’d source them) but they had a pretty good set of 10 rules for teens to blog responsibly. I tweaked them a bit but this is what I came up with for myself.

    My Blogging Promise of Responsibility

    1. I am responsible for anything posted in my name.
    2. I will not say anything on the blog I wouldn’t be willing to say in public or to an individual’s face.
    3. I will not gang up on anyone. Points of view that do not mirror my own will be presented fairly.
    4. I will not post personal information about other people without their permission.
    5. I will only use first names (and last initial if necessary).
    6. I will not plagiarize other blogs, but I will quote them and give credit where it is due.
    7. I will stay on topic and will only post links that are relevant to the topic.
    8. I will not link to inappropriate websites.
    9. I will strive for ‘correct’ spelling and grammar. Errors will be corrected as soon as possible.
    10. Divergent views will be supported. Bullying will not be tolerated.

We started our own retail online store selling travel related accessories to families that travel with children at http://www.ahappytraveller.com and my husband kept mentioning ‘blogs’. I haven’t read your entire article because its alot for me. I have saved it and will be coming back regularly to learn more.

  • […] One of the best educations you can get on blogging, building traffic and earning a few buck from blogging can be found at Darren Rowse’s enternetusers site. You can literally spend days there learning how to blog. If you have any questions about how to increase your traffic this is the first place to go. Again, Darren has taught me so much it’s hard to pinpoint specific post but here are two that I’ve bookmarked because they inspire me; 18 Lessons I’ve Learnt About Blogging and (Another) Day in the Life of a enternetusers. Thank you Darren! Last, but not at all least, is someone who isn’t as well known as the above bloggers, (I could be wrong), but who deserves to be, Lorelle VanFossen. When I thought to thank all the bloggers who helped me get started; Lorelle is the first who comes to mind. She is the most thorough, thoughtful and prolific teacher of all things about blogging and WordPress that I’ve have come across on the Net. Her two main areas of focus are improving blog traffic and blog quality (e.g. the writing). Lorelle cares more about the quality of blogs than anyone else does. For example, in the article The 12 Biggest Problems with Your Blogs, Lorelle taught me that my site had poor navigation since my single post view had no site navigation other than the next and previous posts. A seemingly small tweak to your site to fix something like this will help your readers stay longer. Another great example of what Lorelle teaches is The Top Ten Clues That You Are an Amateur Blogger. Thank you Lorelle! […]

  • I very recently came to realise your rule 17 (Be yourself), all on my lonesome, and for different reasons. Mine was basically that, particularly for people who already have a real world practice/business, one of the things that differentiates you from others, apart from your price/services etc is your personality and how you communicate. I’m not your typical nerdy IT type, and I’m not your suited up business type either. I’m pretty down to earth and easy to relate to and am honest with the customer - if I don’t know or can’t do something, I say so. All my best dealings came from people I liked and respected and who presumably liked and respected me. We felt comfortable around each other and there was plenty of joking around too. So now when I blog, I think of actual people I know (currrent or previous customers that I had good dealings with) and try to write the way I’d talk to them.

    A lot of people put the cart before the horse, thinking “what group of people have plenty of money to give me?”, and then asking “how would they want/expect me to write?”, and then try to do that. This is instead of saying, “what do I know?”, “what am I interested in?”, and with appropriate marketing and referrals etc, letting the niche find you.

    SUMMARY: The cheapest, quickest and easiest Unique Selling Proposition is YOU.

  • […] I was over at enternetusers looking for information about blogging tools when I came across 18 Lessons I’ve Learnt About Blogging. Lesson number 17 was: Be yourself. […]

  • Well, I totally agree with your number 5 rule which is about value. I sincerely believe that as long as you provide good and valuable information to your visitor, they will surely come back for more.

  • As a newbie, i am struck with ur experience, thanks for the info, I just take the printout of the 18 points and going to read each and every point… once again thanks.. :-)

  • I just started blogging this year for fun and to share my experiences with social anxiety. Recently, I’ve been considering getting a little more serious about it and in my search for more info came across your wonderfully helpful blog. Thanks so much for sharing your secrets to success as well as helping others avoid some of the pitfalls.

    Can you recommend a web site that explains the technical side of blog formatting and design?

    Thanks

  • I have been blogging for nearly two years ago on what started out as a way to keep in contact with family while travelling.

    I came accross your site from Loobylu.com and have been reading as many articles as possible. I’m particularly struck by number 6 target a niche as I’ve been blogging about travelling and craft and just feeling uncomfortable about this mixture but not knowing if it was better to start a new craft site. With your advice I’m setting one up straight away. And I think I’ll feel very relieved too.

    My question that I’m rambling towards is - I’m wondering if I can develop this blog into a money making venture and do you think there are niches where it is “taboo” to have a commercial site? none of the other craft blogs I read seem to have pursued this angle.

  • Thanks Darren for sharing a very insightful yet personal message on becoming a blogger. And yes making money out of it may be important to most of us, but it should not be the only reasons for blogging.

    Cheers.

  • You are a guru of ad with sense! God bless you.

  • Thanks Darren! Appreciate your insight on bloggings. Blogging for me is a way to share my knowledge with others. I really liked your take on the power of exponential growth. Even with my blog, I have tried to post atleat five times a week and now feel that posting regularly makes a lot of difference.

  • Excellent points for new bloggers.

    I personally more into creating websites than blogs. Maybe I am not that good in writing.

    Best wishes!!

  • Thank you Darren,

    Each night I have been attending enternetusers.net night school. Tonight was an excellent class. Great points! This site is full of The Good Stuff, so many are not. I am once again a step closer to that glorious day when I actually start my blog.

  • Article was very useful and I got to learn alot as a new blogger.

  • Hi Darren!

    Just thought I’d drop a comment on your blog post on this topic and I’m in agreement to your point #2 especially.

    Hard Work does pays and thats one of the most misunderstood principles of all.

    I saw the guy sleeping on his desk and it just cracks me off.. LOL!

    So, here’s to new bloggers to actually get started the right way :

    1. Know your post before you post

    2. Discipline and commitment goes hand in hand. Make it a point!

    3. Get sufficient rest.. always.

    4. Don’t neglect your family and your relationships.

    5. Exercise regularly to stay fresh and healthy!

    Cheers !

    Regards,

    Vern

  • […] 18 Lessons I’ve Learnt about Blogging […]

  • Hello Darren:

    I’ve been one of the lurkers for a while via Stephanie Quilao’s Back in Skinny Jeans. Congratulations! 3 years in blog time is a long time. And thank you for providing useful links and tips. My blog is a tactic that fits with the integrated marketing communications strategy I adopted to learn exponentially and evolve my career. I’m not looking to make money from it directly. Still, your advice applies:

    1. Be Lucky — ever read Fooled by Randomness? That’s what this point is about. All things being equal, right time and right place play a decisive role in making it.

    2. Work Hard — I sometimes joke that nothing ever comes easy to me as I seem to prefer hard work. The truth is that practice, attention to detail (attention in general), and discipline (very much a choice) have their own rewards.

    3. Use the Power of Exponential Growth — this is the ‘be patient’ point. Evolution is often gradual and overnight success is a certain length of time in the making (built into this point are making mistakes and learning from them).

    4. Differentiate Yourself — the truth is a blog is a medium, even when it’s a business. What comes out is pretty much you. What’s your voice?

    5. Provide Value — How can you add to the conversation? Do you abide by the ethical standards of filtering the information you pass on? Are you a good host?

    6. Target a Niche — this can be also a very specific space in the professional continuum. A lens, a filter, a unique perspective. For example, I blog about different places in which the conversation takes people (content creators, product/service producers and publics) to the next level. While the topics are different, the space is always the same — the point of interaction, the connection of ideas and people with resulting transformation. My tagline is: connecting ideas and people, how talk can change our lives.

    7. Diversify — absolutely. Also, because we are human and have many ways of expressing our skills, talents and experience, not one single medium will satisfy all of them. Also, you may want to continue exploring other dimensions of work beyond the screen interface.

    8. Don’t spread yourself too thin — along with your cannot be all things to all people (voice and personality are a must), you cannot be effective if you’re constantly chasing too many projects. Know thyself and respect your own rhythms first.

    9. Have a back up plan — this is good to have in life and certainly applies to blogging. it does not mean you’re not focused. It means you need to stay flexible and adapt to the marketplace while you remain resilient and committed to your value proposition. It may end up looking very different than what you envisioned and still match your vision.

    10. Be Light on your Feet — I think this also means to stay open to opportunities and in listening mode. Sometimes the best advice comes from the most likely source.

    11. Relationships are Key — as your blog mirrors pretty much who you are, others do too. The blogosphere is a relational space that takes advantage of the linked nature of the web, which is modeled after our brain patterns. In relationships it is important to give, and blogging allows you to do so more than static web sites.

    12. Establish Boundaries — this is part of your own contract with yourself as well. What kind of strategy does your blog fulfill?

    13. Dont’ Read your Own Press — and don’t take yourself too seriously or you’ll lose sight of opportunities to learn and grow.

    14. Beware of Hype — blame no one. expect nothing. do something.

    15. Get a Life — before you can tell stories, it is much better is you actually experience them. What is unique about you will need to be nurtured often.

    16. Make Mistakes — in fact, it is better to risk something often than playing it safe all the time. When I look back at my career, I realize that the most productive times where actually the ones where I was improving on something. Kind of Me 2.0.

    17. Be Yourself — transparency is the key to intimacy and the blog is a one-to-one medium. It is much better to be an interested version of yourself than a perfect copy of someone else. Yes, I wrote interested as it beats trying to be interesting in spades. It’s about the conversation with your audience.

    18. There are no Rules — true, we all make it up as we go along. As long as it fits with our overall strategy and reflects who we are. All the existing rules are history, they were created to make sense of and put order to a reality that is part of our past. Blogging is such a fluid activity, because it involves thought and language — they both evolve, ask our forefathers.

    It has been fun spending time here. Thank you for asking.

Even he got shocked how his writing about blogging experience attracts a lot of social bookmarking, linkback, and feedback as a response. But actually he doesn’t mean to write something intended to be famous. Or see confession from Dave Winner, the owner of Scripting.

  • You post a comprehensive list. While I’ve only been blogging 7 months (Adventures in Dating After 40, http://www.DatingGoddess.com), my blogging has been a fantastic way to write my next book. I started it with that in mind, and have been thrilled at the process, the comments, the community and the result. The manuscript (180 of my blog entries) is in my literary agent’s awaiting him to pitch numerous publishers.

    I’ve learned many things along the way, but do love this medium. It is much better than writing in a vacuum, which is how my other 8 books have been written.

  • These are all really good points and thankfully I’ve heard the same from a few others before I got started, so I’m doing alright for a beginner, but #17 really resonated with me. I was reading a few other blogs (dooce.com and defectiveyeti.com) and wished I could write with as much wit as they do but knowing that it wasn’t going to be very authentic. My wife read a couple of my posts recently and I asked her what she thought. She said, “you write like you speak”. At first I questioned her meaning, but I quickly realized that she was paying me a very big compliment.

  • I just read this post and it’s one of the few that really defines blogging by telling it like it is. A lot of experience for a newbie to learn and live by. Thank you.

    I can proudly say that I AM seeing slight increases in reader traffic
    and small growth in advertising areas already ! : )

    I am not only hoping but working VERY HARD to continue with my goals
    this coming new year ( 2007! )

    I’ve only recently started blogging and have learned so much from this site
    and hope to be here next year and report that I’ve reached new goals : )

    Thanks guys & HAPPY NEW YEAR 2007 to all of you !!!

  • thank you. i have learn a lot from this post…and your blog.

  • Hey Darren,

    I read this post about three months ago and was captivated by your ability to learn and present your learnings in such a wise manner. After visiting enternetusers, I was inspired to blog to earn money. Although, I had decided to not comment on this wonderful post then. I have now started my first meaningful blog thanks to *all* your advice and writings.

    Out of all the learnings, I believe that #5 is extremely essential amongst all the other ones.

    While going through the blogosphere, I notice many blogs with decent amount of traffic (based on the number of comments per post), to only replicate content and provide links to other posts. This is the case with many SEO/Marketing/How to/Self-help blogs. Gadget/Tech blogs merely repeat product launches and reviews. Hence, most bloggers are not ’standing out from the crowd’ as they are only replicating content and NOT ‘adding’ value to the reader.

    Afterall, a successful blog is the one that has satisfied readers and a buzzing community that feels proud to be a part of that community.

    Once again, thanks Darren for inspiring me to get into blogging.

    Cheers!

  • How (damm) difficult is to write about positiveness. I struggle every day considering how the bad things flood…
    This post make my day. Thanks

  • I have just recently gotten into enternetusers and am already enjoying the helpful advice and tips. I believe that the best rewards are the ones that are not sought out directly but happen because of good foresight and desire. Great blog!

  • This was a great read for me. Quite informative.

    The greatest lesson I learned about blogging is how to avoid libel. When I first began blogging I honestly thought there was no limitations on it. I did not get sued or anything, but I read about examples of others getting taken to court for libel because of their blogs.

    My first blog contained a lot of information that I could have been sued over for dafamation of character, and thankfully because I knew the people personally, they were gracious enough to not take me to court.

    Now I blog a lot more responsibly. And thanks to this post, I have reason to apply even more responsibility in my blogging. Thanks Darren! ^_~

  • Darren,

    I have visited this blog many times but this is the first time I am actually taking the time to leave a comment.

    Your blog has a lot of good information about different aspects of blogging. However, I think, you stop short of giving the golden key to success. I must admit, it must have been hard to start this blog and write the different section s which have to do with making money. I think very few people share how they make money and create people who can at some point compete with them.

    Overall, I think, you have done a fabulous job and the tips you have given go a long way.

    Best Wishes,

    Waqar

  • Some excellent advice there, hopefully it will help me find my footing as someone who is new to blogging.

  • Just a note to say how impressed I am with your site/ work. As a ‘newbie’ to teh Blogging phenomenon, your story - Luck, Diligence, Value, Differentiation etc was extremely interesting, and touches on a really significant perspective regarding how business ’success’ is actually achived

    I am a Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Organisation and Management at Sheffield Hallam University (Strategy and Marketing subject group) in the UK and have just began exploring the Blogoshphere. I have had my eyes totally opened to a profound change that has been taking place ‘behind the scenes’ into the nature ‘user/provider/revenue model’ relationships.

    The ‘lessons’ you provide touch a key area of interest I am researching as they show how traditional MBA -seque ‘cookie cutter’ business methodologies are are only a small part of business succes. (originally from games and gambling business I know this only too well!) Are you familiar with Ken Wilber? you might like to check his thinking out as the ‘blend’ of subjective and objective’ and art/ science.

    I’m definitely going to point students to your site as a Premium Exemplar, and if I can evolve my Blogs to anyway near yours I’ll be delighted. Key concern for me at the moment is lack of technical know how to improve look and feel of Blog beyond standard templates, and ‘bug hunting’ when alternative to Blogger templates are copied :(

    Knock Out!!

    best regards
    Paul.

  • Thanks lot for sharing your experience during your blogger life.
    this want i wanted for a long time advice from a experienced guy like you
    thanks a lot.

  • Wow!! I am just getting started and didn’t know where to look for basics. This post have precisely what I was looking for and of immense help. Many thanks.

  • A huge wow Darren…
    Firstly I am surprised that how come I did not come across this article earlier. I mean, I have subscribed to enternetusers for few months now. But, after reading the date on the first comment (Dec 20 2005) and last comment (April 27 2007), I was all the more amazed- for last 1.5 years this post has helped such a lot of people. You amaze me Darren…
    I am on the verge of starting a new niche Blog, and I am so glad that I found this- This is going to be my reference point :)

  • Your site is an inspiration… I’ve been writing FAST for a long time now, and never gave blogging much thought… your site has really opened my eyes, and I thank you…

  • Darren,

    You have given such a Great great post about blogging!
    It is truely a great, value added post

    I blog about Law of Attraction at www.secretofunlimitedprosperity.com

    One point I like to add is when adding value to our readers who read our blog, I also bring in personal experiences which have proved that it work for me. I want to make sure the success tips on Law of Attraction that I provide to my readers are based on tested grounds.

    Another point I like to add is you can improved your “Luck” by applying the Law of Attraction. Positive thinking, visualizing positive image will help to tell the universe this is what you are looking for. Things will start appearing in your life. Some people think it is pure luck but it is really Law of Attraction working in their lives.

    Bob Proctor has a good report on Law of Attraction , which is free
    and you can check it out about his tips at my blog.

    Cheers, Karen

    When I get really frustrated with blogging or sometimes don’t get success then I really do one thing and that is “Now read Darren’s blog”

  • Great site. I just started blogging on several different corporate sites a few months ago and I found your site vey helpful. Fell across it with some reserach I’m doing for ‘how to get dugg on the front page.” It was very helpful. Thanks.

  • […] enternetusers 18 Lessons I’ve Learnt about Blogging […]

  • After reading this post (as well as a couple of others on your site) I felt compelled to comment. I actually found your site by way of a book called The Rough Guide to Blogging where your site is mentioned at the back.

    I have had a journal for some time, well, I had a journal for some time, having recently deleted a live journal account I had since 2002, but I have only had a Wordpress account (hosted at Wordpress) since February and have generally blogged about me, my day, my fears, thing happening around me etc.

    I have yet to read your blog in-depth (or indeed find the other 20 or so you mention) but I have to say that your ideas interest me.

    I have never really thought about making money from a blog. I always thought that I blog was like an online diary, a glimpse into someone else’s life so to speak rather than a tool to make money or even increase readership. But everything I have read seems to me that your blogs are different.

    As I say I only managed to read a couple of pages of your site, but I will read more when I get a chance. But I am glad I found your blog.

  • June 7, 2007 I have spent a lot of time with you today and this post was also helpful. Thought Provoking, that is what I want to say… I am new to this but I want to try it so I will go full steam while I am here. I have really learned a lot today and will be digesting all of it.
    I don’t think it is easy I think it is inspiring to “Share” yourself with interested readers and for sure your blog is a wikipedia explanation of
    content. I congratulate you and appreciate all that you have delivered to me today as I approached your site like a classroom. I wish you continued success and I have joined your email list and will be reading all that you send. Signing off Eva Nash Broker - Eva Nash Realty - Pompano Beach Florida. In reading about you I feel we have a great deal in common and I am very interested in your lessons. Thank You Very Much For Today. Wow 2 comments to one blog in one day that is amazing which of course makes you amazing content.

  • Darren,

    These are all words to live by, or at least to blog by. Every day there are new innovations online and new criticisms of blogging form, technique and even etiquette. If those that are using their blog to market themselves merely kept your 18 lessons in mind, they would enjoy much greater success.

    -4MySales

  • Thank you so much for your insights. You’re so a fresh breath of air amid all the hoopla surrounding blogs. As I embark on my blog adventures, I will closely follow your recommendations.

  • Hello Darren,

    A few days ago I discovered your blog through a friend of mine. I started a blog of my own two years ago but after a few months I quit. This year I continued the same blog but last week I quit again. During this ‘rebirth’ I was constantly thinking what went wrong with my first blog and why I wasn’t very happy re-opening the blog again. The problem was that I started that blog without thinking, without considering the pro and contra’s. So last week I finally (?) started a new blog which I’m happy about, it feels good. And today I stumbled upon this article and have to admit that after reading those 18 reasons it all sounded very familiar… Thank you for sharing and keep up the good work!

    Sincerely,

    Serge

  • Hi Darren,

    These 18 lessons were quite insightful. I have been blogging since 2005 primarily for my clients. Generally to create a buzz of their products & services. Now I’m looking to blog to learn new stuff & see how I can promote my website http://www.shoppingalore.com

    I’m just starting out as an entrepreneur & would like to make my business successful. I like your point on have a back up plan. At times I don’t seem to have the time to promote my site or blog - http://blog.shoppingalore.com & I feel I should spend all my time on this. But job is what pays the bills; I just need to be more organized. Besides with my full time job in internet marketing, I provide various solutions in the online industry & each client is unique so I learn a lot.

    Thanks very much.

    Happy Blogging :)

  • Excellent ideas and advice. I just started blogging and I realized that it’s not that easy as I thought :D.. still I like it and would like dedicate more time to this. I agree with everything you say and I also think we shouldn’t have such big expectations from the start. We all think about the good results, but sometimes forget that in order to get there we need to work A LOT. I will come check the blog more often. It’s one of the few quality ones I read and I don’t put in here the other high traffic ones, so many are too arid and uninteresting. Keep up the good work. It’s worth it ;)

  • I’m glad I found this site. Your 18 lessons are great advise. As a new blogger, I know that I can have a successful blog if I learn from your lessons. Thanks.

  • Fantastic post. It really gets to the point about giving to receive in the blogosphere.

    This post is going to stay relevant for some time and keep bringing back viewers, that will sometimes convert to subscribers.

  • Like the way this article is composed.

  • Great blog. I’m learning a lot. Thanks for sharing.

  • Extremely useful posts , i am sure anybody seriously implementing your inputs will earn from their blogs.
    Many thanks and looking forward to see more such educative stuff from you soon.

  • Pretty good article considering it is two and a half years old. Sign of good thinking if it can last that long in a quickly moving environment.
    Of course, it is actually excellent business sense all round which is why it has not ‘aged’.

  • How long do you feel blog posts should be to be effective. Personally I drop off after about 2 minutes (500-800 words or so). I wonder if others feel the same?
