Write About What You Know
Always try to write your own and write about what you know or what you are passionate about.

Be Consistent In Your Blog Post
Being consistent in blogging is one of the greatest tips for every blogger. Make sure that you do not start and blog for some weeks and just leave it. Or you post 10 articles in one day and do not have anything to blog post for a month. Always keep your blog post in a constant flow, so that your Readers and subscribers know your pace and visit your blog to read your blog post. So, make some commitment to your blog, like get up early or stay awake late if you want to see yourself and your blog successful.
Keep Your Content Simple
Do not write your content in a very high-level language, if you do that your readers will sometimes find difficult to understand the meaning of the words. And what people love is, if you write interacting and keeping your readers engaged throughout your post. So, when you sit to write, imagine about someone sitting in front of your computer and write as if you are talking to that person sitting in front of you.
Call-To-Action At The End Of Every Blog Post
You can keep some throughout your blog as well. But make sure you keep at the end of every blog post or have at least once. If you keep call to action buttons like ‘subscribe’, ‘follow us’ on ‘Facebook’ or ‘Twitter’, it is something that keeps your readers engaged and takes them to the next step. By doing that you are engaging your readers to visit your blog in future too or to remember your blog. So, always make sure that you have a call to action button.
Aim For Thousand Words
This has been always a question for every new blogger that, what should be the number of words for a blog post. Some contents rank with only 200 words and some does not even with 1500 words. The reason is, write useful and quality content that makes sense and just merely filling up unnecessary things that are not even related to your topics will definitely not going to work.
As per experts, the average range should be anywhere from 350 to 2000 words. But when you write too long and lengthy content, it becomes too much time consuming for your readers, whereas if your content is too short, it may not be indexed by Google or other search engines. So, you have to make sure that you write content above 350 words, not too lengthy, content related to your topic. If you write keeping this in mind, your content will surely be a great quality content.
Try To Be Patient
When you start your blog and when you finished writing and publishing your post, it may not attract thousands of readers and viewers to your post at once. So, be patient and keep calm. If you have written quality content then Google is sure to bring readers to your post.
If you keep on blogging and when time passes you will definitely be a good writer and will be able to write on any topics easily. But do not quite blogging early, thinking because you are not getting any comments or readers or the traffic you have expected to.

People always do not come to your blog or read your post to comment. They come to your blog or read your post, just to consume some knowledge from your content. If they are not commenting on your blog does not mean that they are not reading your content. So, do not make your moral down and frequently look at your Google Analytics account and research on which posts are doing well. Use that feedback to write using those similar topics and do more blogs post like that.
Build Your Email List
When someone is on your blog and they are reading, they may want to subscribe. So, make sure you have got that subscribe RSS button but also, do have an email list that you want to build up and have people join your email list so that, you can stay in touch with them in other ways.

Your Blog Title Matters
Always try to give irresistible titles to your blog post. That if people get the impression, suddenly looks at your post title and click it. Try to give a title that is catchy like for example:
If you want to write an article on tea and you have given a title like “How to make tea.”
It is very casual and does not attract at all, but if you just slightly modify it like
“5 best ways to make tea.” Or “How to make a tea that will make your day.” will attract more people. You yourself can think which is better?

Use Your Targeted Keywords
Google or other search engines crawl your blog, but they are crawling your blog. So, you should make sure that you are providing relevant content to your readers who are searching for answers and your blog should be able to prove that when Google is crawling to your website or blog.
You should have your keywords, ideally in the first 100 words is recommended and you have to do it naturally so that your keywords do not seem to be stuffed, because Google may penalize your blog for stuffing keywords in your content. So, try to adjust your keywords in a natural way to your content.
Make Your Blog Post Referable
