Using Your Blog Like Social Media: A Great Way Too Grow

H2DI's Blogging Tips

Over the course of time I have created about 25 blogs, and websites. I’ve Invested money in about 5, and invested a great deal of time in about 7 of them. The others I’m saving for when I can officially afford to invest greatly in them.

In my blogging adventure I have noticed several things, but the thing that stuck out the most to me was the fact that the msot successful blogs, and sites (both the ones I’ve had myself, and the ones of other peoples I’ve seen) are ones that get personal.

My quickest growing blog was this one called HS1DAY. Yes it was successful, and I don’t doubt that if I had kept it up that it would be at 1,000 followers by now. But eventually I lost the passion, so I just moved my followers to my site

5 Defining Traits of a Well-Liked Blogger

boy with a hat

Whether or not people keep returning to your blog depends not just on your content, but also on your personality and how well you express it.

In my last post, I shared with you 23 “Bad” Blogging Habits. Following from that, I want to talk a bit about the traits I keep seeing in well-liked bloggers.

By well-liked, I mean a blogger who is followed, Liked, and shared, and whose posts always leave us feeling that we’ve gained something from them.

Nurturing these traits can make us all not just better bloggers, but better writers – an invaluable lifelong skill.

So, what traits am I talking about?


Authenticity means being you. It doesn’t mean being obnoxiously personal or narcissistic.

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter.Izaak Walton

This was the first and auto-generated post on my blog. When I started, I didn’t knew what this quote meant. Now that I am blogging for a year, I kind of understood that blogging is a journey.

It is !

It’s not a gambling game where you write something and next day you gain followers and stars. And, if money drives you more than passion for writing, you are at the wrong door. Blogging isn’t the place for overnight fame and glory. This is where smart-work ( Hard-work + Creativity ) pays off.

You might have seen many bloggers with thousands of followers and a good number of readers. Newbie bloggers admire them and wonder how they did that? It is neither luck nor black magic. It’s passion. Passion means desire with fire. The desire to write…

Image result for woah calm down gifSeriously, calm down and stop freaking out.

So calm down, and allow yourself…
