Things To Remember When Blogging

The internet is a crazy place, saturated with success stories about people who have put their marketing skills to good use and come across the perfect money making solution right there at the end of their fingertips.

There are a lot of successful bloggers out there who are making good money from their blog, but it didn’t happen overnight, and they weren’t just handed a bag of gold. It required hard work, due diligence, and consistency.

Fred Harrington joins us to tell us three things to remember when entering the blogging hemisphere – you won’t want to go any further without them.

It’s Not Free

As the saying goes, you’ve got to spend money to make money. This is true when it comes to most business and its true of blogging as well. While all the leading platforms where you can start a blog like WordPress and Blogger are free initially, they retain full control over your blog – unless you want to pay to own your domain and take control of the logistics yourself. At the beginning, this can seem like a hefty price to have to pay for monthly or yearly, but if you remain consistent, it will eventually pay off.

Quality Over Quantity?

It’s the million dollar question. Do you focus on publishing as many posts as you can to keep your readers interested, or do you instead put all your concentration on the quality of those posts, going for the slow route as you gradually build up a loyal following who appreciate your effort? It’s all about the right balance. You want to produce enough content to keep people coming back and new readers joining in the first place, but you need to make sure it’s of a consistently high standard to maintain that level of traffic.


In every good business, there are legal aspects that must be covered from the get-go to maintain a high standard of practice and to prevent you from being overridden by spammers or content thieves. Learning how to protect your precious content from copyright is one of the most critical first steps to blogging. Having a robust and secure blog that means people can’t come along and copy your work verbatim will save you a lot of stress and potential financial loss in the future. Blogging is a business, and your content is intellectual property that needs to be protected.

Blogging is a fun, exciting game that has seen many a dedicated blogger become successful and be able to do what they love for a living, all from their computer at home. But it’s not an overnight success story, and every blogger who is reaping the rewards now started out small, putting in hours of work and research to make sure that they were targeting their desired demographic and producing top quality content. The more work you do in the beginning, the less you’ll have to worry about when you become popular and established.
