5 Things Successful Bloggers Do Right

I started my first blog many years ago. Initially, I was not making any money, but after studying successful bloggers and beginning to do what they were doing, I started to make money. 

In this post, I will share five things that successful bloggers do right, like when I started doing. My luck changed so that you can do them, and you can, too, start having some success.

5 Things Successful Bloggers Do Right

It is difficult to change from a beginner to an experienced blogger. To achieve that, you will need to change many things.

In this post, I will explain five things you must start doing to succeed as a blogger or content creator.

Adjust your mindset

The wrong mindset is the most significant cause of failure in blogging. Most people think blogging is just writing content and hoping that Google, out of their mercy, will send you many visitors.

Blogging is more than that, and it has evolved. You need to treat it as a real business.

Most people want to make something out of nothing. I am sorry the world does not work like that. You need to give something to get what you want.

To get success in affiliate marketing, you need to start creating value. You must begin sharing your knowledge, information, and expertise with your audience. If you do that, people will follow you, and you will have a right to ask for that sale.

Change your mindset, start giving value, and you will make it.

Gather data

When I say gather data, I do not mean just list building. You need to start tracking your content marketing effort, how many people click on your links, how people find your blog, what type of content brings more visitors, what content gets more exposure, etc.

Knowing all this information will help you improve what is working and stop doing what is not, which will accelerate your business’s growth.

Having the correct data will greatly improve your profit. Your prospects will tell you they want the content they like the most.

For example, I have a travel blog. I wrote about my experience in an airport lounge, and that article started to rank for another keyword with more than 22K monthly searches.

I created another post that addresses that specific keyword. I would never have figured it out if I did not track my keywords.

This applies to your social media, email newsletters, social media posts, etc. Test things to find out what your audience likes ( now you can make content based on data), create more of it, and repeat the process over and over using the data you gather.


I was listening to a podcast another day, and this guy said if more than 50% of your traffic or income comes from a single source, you’re in trouble, and I agree with this statement.

Imagine this: you make $1000 a month from your blog, and one day, someone hacks your blog, and your income is gone, and you will have to start over. The same is true if you have a YouTube channel that gets closed.

We have seen the President of the most powerful country in the world lose all his social media access. Do you think you are immune? You are not.

Depending on a single source of traffic or income is a bad idea. If you have, let’s say, a blog and an email list, if your blog gets hacked.

You can not get it back. You can start a new blog, email your list, and boom, you have people reading your blog and vice versa.

If you lose your email list (it can happen), you can write a blog post and ask people to subscribe again; most of them will do it.

This is the reason you need to diversify your efforts. If you’re starting, you do not need to do it ( it is better to concentrate your effort on one thing until it works), but it is better to begin diversifying your effort after you start success.

Get out of your comfort zone.

Nothing interesting is going on in your comfort zone. There is an old saying that goes like this: ‘Your greatness starts outside your comfort zone. ‘ It is true.

You know, some people do things that are comfortable to them. There is nothing wrong with that, but if you keep doing that, you will never grow big.

You need to start doing things that will challenge you, start producing content daily, and begin reading, learning, and practicing. This is the only way to grow.

All successful bloggers I know show up every day. They do uncomfortable things, spend time learning new things, or hire someone to do things for them.

Invest in yourself

You must start investing in yourself to grow and become a successful blogger. Yes, you need to invest in your business, but the best investment you will ever make is to invest in yourself.

Investing in yourself means doing things that will make you grow as a person and an entrepreneur.

You can start this by reading books on marketing personal finance, reading about your niche, finding a mentor, etc.

Your level of success will increase, and you increase your value as a person.
