    1. Follow other successful bloggers and learn from them
    Follow other bloggers in your niche an get in touch with them and learn as much as you can from them, I will choose not to recommend any to you but to allow you as the reader to make up your mind about which blogger does it for them.

    2. Make your site useful by solving reader problems
    If your site seems to be useless among readers then that will mean you have an important job to do because that means you will continue losing more and more readers over the internet. Your site should have quality content in abundance and remember not to get your readers bored by not giving them enough content because they will search for other blogs that will give them enough content.

    3. Improve your blogs loading time
    The loading time of a site is one of the most ignored factors in many sites as readers have been very much involved in experiencing common blog bugs such as HTML and CSS errors which makes a site to look disorganized, these errors are one of the causes for some blogs to have unresponsive pages and widgets which causes a blog to load for very long.
    The other most famous factor about the blog loading time is simply too much use of JavaScript which is caused by installing a lot of widgets and plugins. The loading time of a blog does not only affect the blog readership but it will also affect the search engine rankings.

    4. Get the best widgets and tools
    Widgets play an important role in a site as they can help the blogger get to share a message  or a call to the blog readers, don't get widgets just because you want to fill the sidebar but instead you should get them to serve a special purpose to your site.

    5. Get your data organized by using labels and tags
    Every post on your blog should be put in some form of structured data because to you as a blogger you need to get your blog optimized better for good search rankings. Using labels and tags does not only make a site optimized but also helps it to be organised making it easier for readers to browse over different articles.

    Maybe some of you are familiar with the related post widgets that usually appear within or below the blog posts, these widgets organise posts according to their tags and labels because without any tags your post cannot be grouped meaning that it cannot be read or be refferred to certain categories.

    6. Learn as much as you can from other blogs.
    People pay for their ignorance, that is what somebody said to me a couple of weeks ago telling me about somebody who bought a free software for $80 USD which was surprising to me, the same problem many bloggers are facing today is ignorance because they refuse to learn.

    8. Patiently outreach to other related blogs for linking.
    You need support from other blogs and create relationships with other bloggers in your own niche which will cause them to link to your site. The most important thing that one should focus on as a blogger is creating good relationships with bigger blogs which might cause them to link to you while some other might ignore your partnership.

    Most big blogs including us accept guests posts which will give you a chance to get backlinks which will cause the rank of your site to improve. Therefore guest blogging is a must do for your blog.

    9. Choose your best social media marketing platform
    The social media platform that you use as a blogger is important and should not be taken lightly because there are many different social platforms with different types audiences per network. I normally use Facebook, twitter and Google plus to market my content because these are currently the sites with the most of my target audience.

    10. Have a very good attractive responsive template
    In my recent post about the benefits of using a professional blogger template I shared that I mentioned the importance of using a professional blog template.
