5 Things You Need to Know To Make Your Blog a Success
The short answer to this question is: There is no such thing as 5 things to make your blog a success. This header itself is a clickbait one should never use it.
Success is not something that comes overnight. Success is the result of many components, including a good deal of good luck wouldn’t be bad.
Therefore, you need to know that the path to success is very difficult in the blogging realm. Tons of falsehoods are said by self-styled experts. Don’t fall for the nonsense they say. The truth is you are unlikely to succeed with your blog.
Yes, you got it right! Sad but true!!
There are lots of gurus out there ready to cast their knowledge. Nothing is free and most of them do not know a damn!
Don’t let them fool you.
Here’s what you have to know, and it does not take half of your day to read and understand. Straight to the point and quite easy.
1 – SEO
Stop worrying about SEO. Do not spend money on SEO tools, courses, consultants and stuff.
Write as if you were talking to people, real people, your audience. Speak easy and straight away, don’t follow bullshit about writing long posts. John Mueller said this well enough and many times though.
2 – COMPETITION
Sure, you should find a niche, but the truth is millions of blogs are out there and millions of posts are being published everyday and there is no niche left, apparently. Check here how many posts are being written today; awesome, right? Competition can destroy success in no time.
3 – MONEY
Whilst is extremely hard for you to make some money with your blog, you definitely need money to get the word out. Do you want to have the slightest hope that your blog will be noticed and begin to gain traffic? Well, then you have to invest. While you can publish your posts on social platforms for free, you need to pay for advertising if you want more people to know and care about your blog. Success and Money are good friends.
4 – SKILLS
Certainly, you cannot write of medicine if you are not a medical doctor. Lots of people out there put things together, even mimicking or inventing abstruse things. Never do that.
Other than that, you need skills on how to get things right in the world wide web, especially if you have to advertise on social networks and search engines. Don’t rely on cheaters and don’t waste your money.
And remember, skills help success but unfortunately but they are not enough.
5 – RELIABLE SOURCES
Here’s some reliable sources where you can find reliable information and services if anything. None of the following businesses is in our affiliates’ portfolio.

Do NOT start a blog if you don’t have 1) time, as it is an extremely time consuming activity; 2) money to invest as you will need it a lot, so be prepared to spend a few thousand to several thousand dollars (or pounds or euros) if you want to compete and be successful, unless you are publishing only for personal pleasure and not for business.
No, success is not an easy task, and there’s no recipe.
