This post describes the top qualities to become a successful blogger for the newbie bloggers.
Last week, I received a mail through from a guy saying that “I found your blog in Google search, and it has some useful information. I am an engineering student and good in writing tutorials in computer programming. I want to share my knowledge through blogging. Let me know about the qualities that a blogger should possess”.
I humbly replied to that mail with few lines and disclosed some useful resources to him. I was very impressed with his mail because he didn’t include any queries about making money with blogging. I believe that he will become a successful blogger soon and decided to write about the leading qualities that the bloggers should hold.
People consider blogging as a business to make money online. I agree with this concept; even I started blogging to meet some monetary benefits by sharing my acquaintance. But I strongly say that the bloggers should have a set of qualities to become a successful blogger.
Let’s discuss some blogging aptitudes to become a successful blogger. As it is the post for the newbies, I am starting here with the basic question,
What Is Blogging?
The process of writing and publishing posts for a blog is blogging. It is the best way to share your knowledge on fascinating topics with others. Some people are making use of it to get financial benefits, and others are doing it as a hobby.
If you’ve started blogging to make money, then you should have the below-listed qualities to become a successful blogger.

10 Qualities To Become A Successful Blogger
1. Learning and writing skill
A blogger should be a learner and a good writer. If you see the successful bloggers, they never stop off learning, and that might be the reason they keep on being successful.
So, you need to learn the new blogging stuff to withstand in the Blogosphere. Although the ready-made articles are available for the blogs to update, you’ll be missing the personal touch in blog posts, and so it is better to write by yourself for your blog.
Read and write more blog posts to advance your scripting skill.
2. Creativity and Proper planning
A blog is like a diary, and you can express your creativity while creating the blog posts. This would be unique and stand out from the thousands of articles. Proper planning is bringing the different blog post ideas for your blog. This is possible if you like to read other blogs and take part in blogging communities.
Proper planning is bringing the different blog post ideas for your blog. This is possible if you like to read other blogs and take part in blogging communities.
So, if you plan properly along with your creativity, I am sure that you would have an ability to create viral posts and soon become a successful blogger.
3. Curiosity and consistency
Curiosity is the needing quality as it let you do an enhanced blogging. If you are curious in your chosen niche, then you would visit other blogs to expand your knowledge. This quality helps you to construct excellence blog posts and also allow you to comment & guest blogging on the blogs of your same niche.
You should understand that consistency is imperative in blogging to get more traffic, authority and Search engine optimization benefits.
If you’re inconsistent, then it is tough to get love from search engines. i.e it is hard for your blog to hold top place in search engines. Just imagine, if your curiosity is mingled with consistency, then? Definitely, you will become a successful blogger quickly.
4. Patience & Persistence
Patience is a dynamic quality of blogging. Even though, you are brilliant in creating the blog posts, and if you don’t have patience, then it is harsh to thrive in blogging. Persistence is nothing but the strength of mind which helps you to avoid the thoughts of “quit blogging”.
Both patience and persistence are needed in the early period of blogging to get a good reputation in your niche field.
5. Interacting & Helping
Both interacting and helping are the good qualities of a blogger that would assist you to gain more blogging friends and visitors for your blog.
If you interact with pro bloggers and influential bloggers humbly, they will help you to solve your problems, and even they share your blog posts on their network which would increase the visibility of your blog.
6. Niche & SEO knowledge
Having knowledge in your chosen niche and SEO is the indeed quality of a blogger. If you know sufficient information about your blogging niche, then it is feasible for you to update your blog. Some bloggers commit a mistake in choosing their niche with trending topics, not their fascinating one and this is the reason for writer’s block.
To rank well on search engines, the basic SEO like keyword research, on-page, and off-page optimization should be done.
7. Targeting & Understanding The Audience
Blog audience helps to grow your blog and so it is essential that they should be targeted. Some effective products from Google like Keyword planner, Trends, Google Analytics could be used to find your target audience.
You can engage your audience by understanding them and provide solutions for their requirements through your blog posts.
8. Observing & Smart Working
Observing blog related stuff like traffic driving ways, tools to cross-post the blog content, link building, etc. would expand your blogging knowledge and do the experiment to implement these stuff. Most of the bloggers say that hardworkingly is necessary for blogging. But I prefer smart work by thinking wisely to do an enriched blogging.
If observation is blended with your smart work, then it would let you become a successful blogger effortlessly.
9. Managing and Marketing skills
Social signals like Facebook Likes, Tweets, +1’s of Google Plus and votes in community websites are significantly needed for your blog to get good SERP. So, you should stay active in social networks and top social bookmarking websites to acquire like-minded people for your blog.
Manage your social profiles effectually and promote your blog posts on popular social networking websites helps you to get more exposure.
10. Organized and Time Managing Ability
To become a successful blogger, you should well-organized with your blogging activities like publishing and promoting the blog posts, blog commenting, guest blogging, etc.
You could execute all these activities by implementing better time management.
If you still need some practical strategies to thrive in blogging, check this huge list of blogging tips that would widen your web presence for sure!
Blogging is not a one day game to see the result of your work. It may take several months/years to reach your goals. Instead of getting discouragement, try to practice the above-listed qualities to improve your blog by attracting more people to it. If you have these top qualities, then you would become a successful blogger soon.

I think that time management plays a huge role in whether or not we are successful.
Many people try to do blogging while working a job or doing other life things. If they don’t learn how to manage their time, chances are they will never become successful.
I’ve learned a lot of things and met a lot of great people just from visiting different blogs. So I think that reading other people’s blogs can definitely help you improve your writing skills and keep you updated on your niche.
Thanks for sharing…have a wonderful day.

You haven’t left any quality which a blogger should have to become successful. 😀
You have covered every quality we need to become successful. I personally believe that ” Learning & Creativity ” is the must have quality. Why?
Because If you want to learn something then after learning that thing, you will try to implement that thing in a very creative way.
Creativity always helps to generate new ideas and unique methods of completing any task.
Just impressed with your article. Thanks for sharing this article with us. 😀
hii i m big fan of yours and i always read ur post they always give me knowledgeable information
Hi Nirmala, should a new blogger focus on both social profiles as well as guest posting? As the shortage of time, new bloggers can’t manage both.
