Top 10 Habits of Successful Bloggers
In an ever-evolving digital era, the successful people of our generation all have some very significant characteristics in common.
If you strive to be successful, both in the monetary sense and in happiness, consider developing these habits of successful bloggers.
How many of these habits do you already have?
- Wake Up Early
The old age is true – the early bird gets the worm.
- Exercise Consistently
Not only is exercise good for your health, but it can also make you more productive.
- Soak in New Information
Whether you like to read, watch documentaries, or play interactive math games, soaking in new information is crucial to your success.
- Don’t Give Up
This one’s pretty straight forward – the successful bloggers you see out there didn’t give up, even when the going got hard and they weren’t seeing the progress they were hoping for. And believe me, every successful blogger you can think of has had their share of rough patches in the road! (aka. You’re NOT alone!)
- Follow Inspiration
People, buildings, art – whatever your inspiration – follow it and you will find success.
- Sleep 7-8 Hours
Sleep is essential to your health, mood, focus, and energy levels. Lack of sleep will limit your ability to function at a high level each day.
- Find Multiple Revenue Streams
In this day and age, there are always ways to make some extra cash. From affiliate marketing to product creation to offering services, successful bloggers find multiple ways to earn money from their blogs.
- Pursue Personal Goals
It’s all well and good to help your blogging business grow, but personal development is more important to feeling fulfilled and enjoying life.
- Take the Positive View
Negative thoughts and feelings are normal, but successful people are experts at handling the negatives and turning them into positives.
- Handle Stress
One of the most important aspects about successful people is their ability to handle stress. We all have stress from various sources and dealing with that stress is crucial if you wish to find success and happiness. Learn stress-reduction techniques and use them regularly.
- Resist Shiny Object Syndrome
It’s so easy to hear about some new tool that is doing amazing things for another blogger – and want to go get that new tool for your own blog. BUT, in my experience too many new tools are distracting and will actually harm your blogging success – so think carefully before switching tools or adding a new tool to your blogging arsenal.
- Don’t Go It Alone
Find a group of bloggers to join – it’s a great way to learn and also a great place to get encouragement when the going gets hard. Successful bloggers work with other bloggers to stay motivated and get feedback.
Successful bloggers inspire us ‒ but remember, they all started off just like you.
