19 Tips For Bloggers, From Bloggers I Wish I Had Known Before I Started Blogging

Biggest risk? Hmmm, that would be investing time on something without knowing whether it will work out or not. For example, in the first year of my blogging, I invested so much time in Twelveskip without getting that much in return. It’s like I was working full-time for free. I kept telling myself to have fun and be passionate because I believed one day all these would pay off. I spent most of my time learning, experimenting, networking and creating content. I was inspired by those people who started from nothing (like Michelle Phan) and became really successful because they are passionate about what they do. If they can do it, why can’t I, right?
Now I’ve been happy with the level of engagement I’ve got. I love how I actually make a living from blogging. It took me a year and a half to figure all out but I never felt like it’s work. I’ve loved every bit of it.

There isn't really a magical recipe to succeed in blogging, it's going to take from you a lot of patience and constancy. It's about learning the rules and playing better. There's no lack, there's only hard work. You need to believe in yourself, and to believe in that value that you have to give to the world. Don't focus on profits, build your audience first. Feel free to express yourself and do what you love. Learn from others if you want but never compare yourself to them. Your blog is going to be a reflection of who you are. Simply, do it the way you love to do it! Be yourself, and the right people will fall in love with you.

These are some tips that had worked with me, and I hope it helps you too:
