follow the leaders in your niche
This is the first part you shouldn’t ignore or miss as a newbie, an amateur or a pro blogger you should follow the leading blogs and bloggers in your niche with these you will be able to learn some stuffs from them and their blogs e.g things like when they publish articles on their blogs, how they get traffic to their blogs and their backlink building strategies and many more things. my advice for any blogger is for them to know and follow at least 10 blogs in their niche because they will likely be of help to you and your blog in many ways.
2. have a good source of inspiration

3. write only quality and original articles
there is one thing that blog visitors are seeking from your blog, some bloggers might not know the reason why visitors are visiting their blogs if you are among those bloggers that don’t know the reason why visitors are visiting then hear this,visitors are visiting your blog because they are seeking for quality and informative articles or content that will be helpful and meaningful to them. so don’t give your blog the opportunity to lack the quality readers are seeking for.
4. article lenght
The internet surfers of our time are too lazy to read every content on a blog carefully instead they love scrolling the post to the ending that’s why you need to make your articles short and well explained in a plain language. this is also one thing that is killing most newbies today because they are trying to make their content long like the one from the pros, yeah i remembered i said follow the pros in your niche but you shouldn’t copy everything they do on their blogs.
i) the advantage of copying the pros
because they have experience in the blogosphere
because they have huge list of loyal readers etc
ii) the disadvantage of copying the pros
you are new to blogging
you have little or no experience at all
you don’t have any loyal reader
so when you are writing your articles they should be meaningful even if it is short

you need to commit yourself as a blogger because there are some newbies that post only one article in a month which is quite bad for them and their blogs because they are new in the field, there are other blogs that will get majority of the traffic coming to your niche because search engines love blogs that update their blog’s homepage with fresh content.
