Wow!!! Becoming a better blogger? I know your question would be – is Babanature a better blogger! Well, I’ll tell you this, I am also trying to be better even better than I was yesterday. The blogging world is filled with enough great minds which we all know and it is difficult for any new blogger to shine in his/ her field, except coming out with something different which I think might be difficult for an average mind 🙂
At some point back, I wrote a post on “how to stand out from the crowd” and I would advise you to read it if you haven’t because standing out from the crowd is indeed essential. So before I continue, let me ask you just this one question – are you a better blogger? Please do provide the answer using the comment section below 🙂
Being a better blogger is not all about getting high alexa rank or best PR, no – being a better blogger is about how you are able to impact positively on someone else’s life. So, on my today’s post we are going to be sharing how we can truly improve our blogging skills
How To Be A Better Blogger
How can a blogger be better? That answer lies within you, but what I am going to share with you here today might shape your ways on how you can be better than your yesterday… so without wasting much of our time, let’s move on to the show, shall we?
Let me start with:
√ Teach only by experience:
I hate it when I read a blog post like; “how to make money through facebook” and the blogger that wrote the post have not made a penny from what he’s teaching others. If you can’t benefit from the stuffs you’re writing about then how do you expect me to benefit from it?

We search for information online because we believe we can get the perfect answer to solve our problem, right? But imaging if I were to see your blog on my search and I tried the method you blog about but did not work, don’t you think you’ll be losing that one reader that might even be your loyalist? Don’t you think you’ll lose that one person that would have made your site the best in the world? Believe me or not, I hate bloggers who do not write their blog posts from their heart and what I hate the most are those bloggers who have not experience what they write about.
Teach me what has been working for you that might also work for me, and not some random topic that will not be useful to anybody…
√ Be creative:
I guess we all know what creativity means, right? It is only the creative minds that will succeed in the blogging world for a longer period of time. When you are not creative you, you might run out of content soon and might also start steeling other bloggers creative works, which I’d say is bad for any bloggers’ health.
How can I be creative? Being creative is simple and takes less effort to achieve :). First study your area of expertise, go on research and find out what people truly want and need, try to solve people’s problems (in a genuine and authentic way) and make it a post for the world to see. Hope I’m making sense?
Believe it or not, we all need help in one area or another… so be creative and always get ideas that will always wow your readers…
√ Be willing to help:
Do you know that to assist other people is the best way to succeed in life? Yes! With a helping hand comes great reward (physically and spiritually).
I love solving people’s blogging problems the best way I can (whether free or paid). I’d tell you that the reason I am still here today is because of the people I’ve helped and still helping :). If you help a blogger to achieve what he or she wants or looking for, they will definitely recommend their friends to your services. Once you get people referring other people to you that means you must be doing something right, right? In which case, it is called success (well, in my own opinion).
Touch the life of one person and you might end up touching the world…
√ Be willing to share:
Seriously, I never knew that sharing other people (bloggers) stuff is part of being a better blogger till I met Harleena :). You know, if I haven’t learned anything from great bloggers like Harleena, I have definitely learned that sharing is loving :). Sharing other blogger content after reading definitely shows how unique and kind you are. While doing this, it will make the bloggers you’re sharing their contents stop by your place as well and also share yours and leave a comment if necessary. And also, they might even want to create a connection with you.
You might think that sharing other bloggers content will only send your fans to their blogs and those fans might never come back to yours if the other blog is better than yours, but guess what? The more you share other people’s stuffs, the more your reader list increases (true fact).

When you share other blog’s content, your subscribers, comments, fans will increase. How do I know that? It is a proven fact
√ Always want to learn:
Who doesn’t want to learn new stuffs? We all want to learn and that’s a sure fact, but how can you learn when you claim you know it all? Nobody is an island, the day you stop learning, that day will be the starting point of your failure.
I still search for information, I still do blog hopping to see if I’d learn some new things, I still ask bloggers (new or old) for things I might find confusing or don’t know. To be better is to tell yourself that you are not perfect or are you?
