As a blogger, all you want is to share your ideas. So you create content on your blog.
But you should know, creating excellent content is not all there is to blogging.
In fact, if your content is not “branded,” it’s likely to get ignored.
Are you a random blogger slash virtual stranger?
If so, you shouldn’t assume your target audience has nothing better to do than check out what you cooked up in your blog.
You’ll end up breaking your own heart if you do.
If you don’t have a well-established brand, many people will not bother with you and your content.
So don’t be one of those bloggers who overlook the need for branding. Even if you perceive yourself as a business and not a brand, your branding matters.
And stop badgering yourself with the question, “Why is branding important?“. Instead, approach the matter head-on: make a brand.
In this post, I will tell you why you need to focus on your brand as a blogger. And for these reasons, you will understand why it’s a key ingredient in every blogger’s success![Read more…]

Blogging is a two-way street.
Scott Chow of The Blog Starter thinks so, too. He says “Blogging at its heart is interactive.”
Every blog post is a platform where you can share ideas that your audience can discuss. It bridges like-minded people and gives birth to better ideas about the topic.

So here’s a list of some of the best and most popular community blog sites. Use these sites to share your latest content and generate buzz to it!
If you’ve been blogging for a while, the prospect of monetizing your writing has likely crossed your mind once or twice. Fortunately, getting the ball rolling here isn’t overly complex. Most bloggers start by writing posts focused on affiliate marketing. If you have been doing this for a while, a logical next step might be to launch a full e-commerce store. [Read more…]
If there’s one thing that counts most in your online presence, it’s your site traffic.
One of the best ways to ace it is by optimizing your blog for search engines. In fact, 82% of marketers believe that it’s the most effective way to boost one’s business.
As appealing as SEO sounds, reaching the top of search results for your target keyword is no easy feat. There are factors that you can control (on-page SEO) and those outside your jurisdiction (blog niche).
Therefore, if you want your blog to rank in search results, then you need to take a cue from the case studies featured below. Each of the blogs employed different strategies that helped them reach the top of Google, most of which you’ll find useful when optimizing your blog.
Do you want to achieve greater online audience reach by publishing your content once again?
Creating killer content is always the main priority of all bloggers, no question about that.
But coming up with fresh ideas on what to write about can be exhausting. Having ideas is one thing, but working on it is another!
Sometimes, well-researched and high-quality content can take half a day to finish or even more. Even if you spend the whole week creating one, there is no guarantee that you’ll get the desired results.
Fortunately, you don’t always have to create new content – repurposing them can do a long way.
Repurposing content means you can take any existing blog post that you have and then reuse it again.
Sounds simple, right?
Not necessarily. Execution can be the trickier part.
But it’s still a great help when you’re having difficulty with new ideas as of the moment.
In this post, we’ll share with you five ways on how you can repurpose your blog posts to bring in more traffic to your site.
