Have you ever wondered how is it that professional bloggers are maintaining their blogs with tons of traffic to their website and making a profitable income from it?
Even new bloggers who are in this blogging business for just a year or two are making a quite decent amount of money and attracting traffic to their blog!
Now one thing that bloggers often struggle with is being consistent. Do you know why? cause we do not have anyone to tell us what we have to do? how many posts we should write in a day? no one is yelling at us to finish the given task.
I mean literally, no one really cares what you are doing, and here is what lies the main secret of becoming a successful/professional blogger.

When you are into the blogging business, you are in charge of yourself, you need to have self-discipline, you need to make sure that you are strict enough on yourself and actually get things accomplished. You can’t afford to be in a comfort zone when you are blogging for success.
And for this, you need to master really good habits because as a blogger you will often tend to do the same things over and over again that will further contribute to the success of your blogging business.
So here are some of the daily habits of successful bloggers which help them to be on top of their game. This is what you (beginner bloggers) too need to implement when you are just starting your blogging journey to create a successful blog for yourself.
So let’s begin….
1. They write every single day
Now being a blogger your number one agenda is to attract more traffic to your blog. You need traffic coming to your site continuously every single day.
For that, you have to provide high-quality content which people are searching for. You have to provide fresh content every single week to stay on top of your blogging game.
For successful/professional bloggers, every new day is an opportunity to put out the best content in front of their audience and even if they get say 20-30 minutes here and there they will utilize that time for writing out their content for a blog or for social media post.
To be a successful blogger, you (beginner bloggers) need to start writing every day.
What I mean by that is, as a newbie blogger try to write at least for 30 minutes every single day if you cannot sit and complete your blogpost in one single day.
Though that will eventually happen once you get hold of writing your blogpost daily but for the time being when you are just starting it’s better to start small and build that habit of writing even if it is for 10-15 minutes.
You need to take advantage of short moments and start outlining your blog post. This will get you in a practice to write consistently and put your voice out there without getting overwhelmed.
Writing every day will get you in habit of being consistent in publishing your blog post which in turn is going to help you attract more traffic to your site and help you monetize your site through ad revenue.
You are going to need fresh content to get people coming back over and over again to your blog.
2. They remove distractions when working
Successful/ professional bloggers are adamant about completing their tasks in the time frame that they have planned out.
Now, most of us (bloggers) work from home, and whether you realize it or not we are bombarded with distractions throughout our working period.
Professional bloggers are really tough on themselves when it comes to productivity. In this digital age, phones and other electronic devices may create a lot of distraction when you are trying to focus on producing your content.
Take for example Netflix / amazon prime or for that matter your mobile phone. Once you get sucked into that dark hole it becomes so much impossible to gain the focus on the thing that you are trying to accomplish like trying to write your blog post, trying to schedule your content, and so on.
Getting distracted breaks your focus and hamper your ability to be productive.
Hence try to remove distractions. Get strict with yourself, do not allow yourself to go on social media, Netflix, or any other devices until you finish creating your content and are able to provide a valuable post to get published on your website.
3. Networking with fellow bloggers and audience
Now every professional/successful blogger knows the importance of connecting with their audience and networking with other fellow bloggers.
It is super important to build your online network with fellow bloggers and your target audience which helps to increase your blog traffic.
By engaging with bloggers who are in the same niche as you are and doing collaborations or doing a guest post, you get other bloggers to share your content on their site which helps you to get in front of a new audience who share similar interests.
This way it helps to drive traffic to your blog which inturns help in increasing your revenue as well.
When you engage with your audience, your audience gets to know you, your personality. They tend to share your content with their friends and family who are going to show up on your website.
Networking helps build trust with your audience who are willing to go to your blog and read your awesome content. These are the people who you want to go over to your site and buy your products and services.
Hence find a social platform that you love, build your community and start connecting with your people.
Just start networking genuinely and authentically with your audience.

4. They are always eager to learn something new
A professional/successful blogger will never admit that they know everything in their niche.
There’s always that thirst to learn something new every single day. They are more open to kind of learning something new from a different perspective.
There is so much going on that they have to keep updating themselves with new skills every day maybe new content strategies, social media algorithms, products & services they offer, and so forth.
They are willing to learn every day and put 100% into what they do.
Being a blogger you need to know so much about content, technical issues, tools, and resources.
You need to figure out so many things that are important for your blogging business and continuously need to brush up on your skills which are going to make you a better blogging owner.
To be a successful blogger, you really need to evolve yourself so much more efficiently and effectively for your business.
Timeline what you want to learn and focus on it. For example, if you want to learn how to use Pinterest then take a month or quarter of a month. Focus on learning in-depth how to use Pinterest to grow your blog, learn its strategies, its statistic.
Know that learning is so important for a blogger as blogging is so ever-changing and you will always require new skills to stay on top of your game.
If possible, try to hire somebody for the skills that your want to learn this way you can have them do the work for you and simultaneously learn from them at the same time.
Remember, you are constantly going to change, you are going to do things differently a year from now. You are going to evolve and kind of have different strategies and have a different approach for your blogging business.
5. They keep track of their progress – Analyze the statistics
As mentioned above, successful / professional bloggers who have been blogging for years now, always make sure that they never let themselves get too comfortable.
Now if you are a newbie into the blogging world, I would definitely recommend staying away from checking your analytics every single day.
You may read my post on mistakes that newbie bloggers often tend to do unknowingly. to know how checking your analytics too soon affects your productivity.
But for a professional blogger, they always make sure to kind of check with their analytics, blog post statistics, email marketing statistics to make sure how many people visited their blog, did anybody made a purchase, how many people opened the email that was sent and so forth.
This kind of gives them an idea of what is working and what is not. By doing so, they could either tweak their strategies if something hasn’t been working and make an effort to be on a right track.
There is always a way to improve yourself and so making sure that you check that statistic often for your blog even it’s not every single day is important to just make sure that you are not getting too much comfortable with your blogging business.
So these are the daily habits of successful/professional bloggers to keep themselves on top of their game.
Remember, seeing success for your blog takes time. You have to be patient.
Try to give your blog a chance, be consistent and provide high-value content for a whole year or two before you plan to give up.
Build connections, be active on socials and eventually, you will see the progress.
