So you want to create and own a popular blog.

Are you willing to do what it takes to become one of the top blogging sites in your niche?

Your blog’s popularity begins with the blog topic you choose to write about. People must have an interest in the subject matter you post!

People read blogs NOT out of loyalty to the blogger but rather for the information the site contains!

The blogger must continue creating content that is relevant and interesting enough to get return visitors to your site!

5 essentials your blog must contain if you hope to get return visitors which is a sign your building a loyal following.

Your Writing  In 3 simple words

Your content needs to be: relevant, informative, and useful.

Remember people read blogs out of curiosity and interest. If you can’t provide updates that satisfy these reader needs, you’re facing an uphill battle.

Your Effort

The time you have available to maintain your blogging platform is something you’ll need to determine in advance.

Your content MUST both consistent in terms of both effort and adhering to the blog topic itself.

People want to know what to expect. How often or when you will next update the site.

Of course, people landed on your platform for the subject matter you offer so to change course in terms of the topic would be foolish and damaging to the growth of your site

Your Hospitality

If you don’t allow comments, a more ‘static’ website is the way for you to go.

A large part of the popularity associated with blogging platforms is the ability for people to interact by leaving comments.

If you want to be a good ‘host’, you’ll allow people to voice their opinions or share their thoughts when visiting your site.

Most of the people who read blogs assume and expect that they can also participate, so don’t disappoint them.

Your Navigation

You work hard to develop content around the blog topic you’ve chosen. Make it ALL available to visitors.

Arrange your updates into categories while also linking together any posts that contain related and/or relevant information.

This makes navigation on your site a breeze and is something commonly found on all the top blogging sites.

Your Commitment

The commitment you have as a blogger.

It is important to realize that even the top blogging sites took plenty of time to establish a large and loyal following.

Loyalty does not occur overnight. The efforts you do need to be long-term since blogging is a process.

Having a popular blog begins with your choice of the blog topic you intend to base your site on but this is simply the beginning.

It is wise to recognize people read blogs due to their interest in the content provided and not out of loyalty to the writer!

It is up to you, the blogger, to continue publishing content that keeps reader interest and to do so consistently.

Over time your efforts will result in building a loyal following along with, hopefully, earning the reputation as being one of the top blogging sites in your chosen niche.
