8 Blogging Tips Every New Blogger Should Know
Okay, you have successfully created that blog you’ve always wanted. And you love it just the way it is… but before you can go further with your blog, there are some things I am going to point out that will help you and your blog in terms of visibility and productivity.
Below are the 8 blogging tips every new blogger should know… are you ready? If yes, the first on our list would be –
Don’t use excess plugin, it kills:
One of the easiest ways to kill your blog slowly is by implementing plugins after plugins after plugins on your blog.
Plugin helps our blog run smoothly and easy without stress, but too much of it kills the speed of your blog.
Too much of plugin install can make your host provider shutdown your blog due to high CPU usage.
Too much of plugin can make your hard-earned traffic go away and search engines leave your site and never come back.
You’ll frequently get error page if you install many plugins on your blog…
Normally, plugin don’t have maximum dose – but it is advisable to install not more than 15 plugins on a blog. 15 installed plugin can help keep up the speed of your blog and remember that search engines love sites that are fast.
Only Blog what you truly know
I have been to so many new blogs that only copy, paste and publish other blogger’s articles. If you are that blogger who only copy other bloggers works, I am sorry that you have already failed. You can’t make it in the blogging work…
To make it in the blogging world – I’ll advice you to do research properly on the niche you want to blog about so you won’t have to copy other bloggers work. Or you can simply teach what you truly know and have full knowledge about.

Plus you can easily help someone with the perfect solution when they approach you.
Watch all successful bloggers you know, they all are into the niche they truly know about. Why not you do the same?
Somebody ask me – “Babanature how can a new blogger drive traffic to their blog?” the first step I told him to take was to be unique. Why? Because if your article is not unique and you try to drive traffic to it, yes you will get the wanted traffic but you will have a high bounce rate.
Having a high bounce rate, with time, your blog will be swept off search engines and that is bad. Trust me; no blogger wants their blog not to show on search engines.
If your article is good enough, your readers will definitely read the article no matter how lengthy it will be… and the sweet part is, they will click-through your recommended posts because they love your article.
Use images that actually go with the post
There are some new bloggers that would ask me to check out their blogs for correction. After checking their blogs I’ll see that many don’t use images on their blog posts and some that does, abuse it.
What makes a blog post even more interesting is when your post and the images you attached to are similar.
Some readers fall in love with the images you use and some might pin them or share them just to show how impressed they are.
If you are not into tutorials or photography niche, please don’t fill your blog post with images, why? It will only make your blog look stupid and the images will drag your server. Even Google kick against such acts
Make your images simple and in line with the post – one image or two images are very much okay and advisable to give your blog that flavor 😉
Make proper research before writing that great post
You wrote a catchy post that got few eyes looking your way. But, the funny thing is, you can’t answer questions thrown at you because you did not make proper research before making such post.
What makes you unique and different from other bloggers is, you are ready to go on extra miles just to get the job done.
Your post will speak for you and your voice will convince the people 🙂
This is one of the easiest parts in our blogging journey.
We need friends to support us in our blogging journey. You know those kinds that can help us share our posts, and talk with when having little difficulties.

Without friends, the blogging world will be a lonely one 🙁 .
Go out there and make enough blogging friends as possible because I am sure you will need them.
Learn from experts
Okay, you are a blogger doesn’t mean you won’t learn some new tricks to help your blog move forward.
One of the good ways to put your blog into the right path is to learn from people who have experience more than you in a particular area or who’ve been in the blogging business way more than you.
Apart from experts, it is good to learn from your colleagues and friends that are in the same niche with you.
Find out what makes them what they are, find out their most shared contents, build a topic around that content and please when you do, do not copy. Remember to always be unique in whatever you do.
Making money blogging, getting traffic, or whatever will only come if you focus and never give up, so keep pushing. If you are in the right track, you will know and if you’re not, it is never too late to pull back and retrace your problem so you can be a better you 🙂

Great tips here Babanature!
I wish I would have taken the advice of listening to the experts when I first started out. It wasn’t until just recently where I actually started doing this, and it saved my blog! Lot’s of great advice is out there, you just need to listen to it.
Have yourself a great week.
Thanks for the contribution Craig. I really appreciate it 🙂
Good post here.
A lot of tips here. And I wish I had the tip about listening to and learning from experts before. But the thing is, you can’t emulate the same success they had. You eventually have to form your own path.
But you can use their advice and experience as learning tools to guide you.
That is the point, doing exactly what they did might not help ones career… but using their advice and experiences as your tool, is just the best way to be a boss at your own game 🙂
Thank you for stopping by and dropping your comment. Do have a wonderful week ahead…

Indeed learning from experts will surely help to speed the learning process and also we could avoid mistakes.
You got that right, Samantha . . .
Thanks for contributing to the post… and hope you have a great week ahead 😉
All the tips rock. Making friends jumps out at me in a big way.
All success I’ve had is because of my friends. Without them I’d be writing a diary, not a blog, so I make more friends daily and strengthen my bonds daily, too. Friends smooth out your blogging journey in a major way.
You got that right! Many new bloggers don’t know the power behind making friends building that connection and all. It is time to show them and let them know how to make that bold step.
Thanks for the comment… do have a blessed week ahead…

Thanks for the comment and do have a wonderful weekend 🙂
Nice tips for beginners as well as experts, I guess none are experts we always tends to learn something new day by day.
Yes, they are “no” expert in the blogging world or outside, but they are people who know way more that others when it comes to some certain field. So asking those people for help or learning some few tricks aint a bad idea.
Thanks for stopping by and dropping your comment. Do have a lovely week ahead.
A very useful article for the newbies.
I truly agree with your 2nd point. Most of the people who comes to blogging want to see success in one day. They do not have the patience to research. Simply copy – pasting someone else’s hard work. And then wonder ‘why I am not able to gather traffic’.
Blogging is not easy & never it was. If you do not have the endurance to read & think, then dear this is not your place.
I may sound little harsh, but it is really irritating when few people simply shows someone else’s work as their own. Thanks for pointing this out & few other very important basics.
These are great tips not only for newbies but also for us experienced bloggers out here. I especially find the point Only Blog what you truly know to be extremely important.
I find it enthralling to write on topics where I am a master. I think that is the essence of blogging. Otherwise, we will just be on an exploratory expedition.
Thanks for these valuable tips! Have a great day!
Excellent Wrote Babanature ,Everything explained briefly very well and for newbies they can easily understand about the blogging and how it’s works related stuff including me as well
Thanks Babanature for share your tips about blogging.
