Experts tips – Chat with Valentine Belonwu

Hi Val,

1. What insisted you to found Justretweet? I hope there is an interesting story behind it, please share with us.

I was inspired to launch JustRetweet.com because; when I started blogging in early 2010 I had challenges and difficulties to get people to share my blog posts. Bizsugar was the only site that brought me traffic, yet I craved for more. I wanted to widen my coast and increase cordial relationships between myself and other bloggers. It was at this point that the idea of Justretweet came to me; which will enable bloggers interact and share their blog post mutually.

 

2. I am wondering with your reply comments for the submitted posts in Bizsugar community. First let me and my readers know, how do you manage your blogging and social activities? I mean am asking about your working schedule.

Am one of the moderators working for Bizsugar and I love spending time there because being on the site inspires me. I love how members interact with one another; it makes time spent there interesting because the posts that are being promoted there relates to our everyday life activities. Bizsugar has over one million registered users and counting, it standout from other bookmarking sites because of the air of workable relationships among bloggers.

And I am a very social person, I don’t miss family social gatherings or hanging out with my friends. I have disciplined myself so they don’t collide. All my online work ranging from blogging and moderation has a fixed time, so it doesn’t affect me socially. Though I love writing, I write anytime of the day, anytime I get a muse and concentrate I write, still I discipline myself so it doesn’t affect or disturb my sociability with family.

 

3. According to you, what are the basic qualities that a blogger should possess?

Essentially a blogger should be enthusiastic about blogging, passionate and should have the right amount of patience. Everybody can be a blogger but not everyone can be a successful one. To be successful all these traits are mostly needed. If you enjoy writing, you would definitely enjoy blogging as well. Likewise, being good at writing only will not work if the blogger does not have the habit of reading and responding to the reader questions and other bloggers posts.

 

4. Which is the fast and best traffic generation method for a blog? If possible share your traffic secrets here.

Joining and registering on sites like Bizsugar, Tribber, JustRetweet and Blokube can be a good generator for quality traffic.The strategy I use in generating traffic is by writing original and useful posts that no one has ever written and coming up with a post that will be a problem solver to other people’s online problem or inquiry.

When publishing an article, I don’t use long titles but rather I try as much as possible to shorten it. It enables me rank well, and it gets me more organic traffic. For example, rather than using a long url like this, mymagicfunds.com/make-money-online-by-writing-tutorials, you can shorten it by using mymagicfunds.com/writing-tutorials, or mymagicfunds.com/tutorials .

 

5. Did you experienced any personal benefits from blogging other than money making?

I was not cash driven when I started blogging, it was mere passion. There are many benefits in blogging because when I started I didn’t make money for 8 months. After I mastered the blogging acts, I started earning money. Other important features of blogging are the important connections it has given me with a lot of influential and important people. It gives one a sense of dignity.

 

Your Advice/suggestions for bloggers and online money makers.

Don’t give up. Blogging is not a bed of roses, it’s going to be boring with time but persistence and passion works hand in hand to bring about success and recognition. All is needed is hard work, innovation and creativity.

 

Many thanks Val, for spending your precious time to react for my readers. I agreed with your url suggestion which I am unaware of it and will implement it for my future posts. I wish you all success achieve some remarkable things in your online career.

  9. Ryan Biddulph

    Hi Val and Nirmala,

    Splendid!

    I like your focus Val on building connections. Connections can make or break your blogging business, or your non-business blog for that matter.

    If I receive comments from blogging buddies and get many social shares I can succeed. If I try to do it all by myself, I fail. It took me years to learn this. So happy to see Val shared this with aspiring and even vet bloggers who are still struggling.

    Thanks for the awesome share Nirmala and Val. Great insight here!!

    Ryan
