Mega Roundup : Learn Blogging From 28 Bloggers Around The World

Hey,

This is our first roundup post on OD N EVN. Usually, in Roundup posts there will be a single question, but here we are asking the experts and the rising stars a few questions which relate to their blogging journey. I am sure you can pick up a few lessons from their answers, and that will guide you in your blogging journey.

Philip V Ariel

What is the story behind your Blogging Career? Means How you started and who was your idol behind developing your career in Blogging?

The beginning of My blogging journey is indeed a big story in itself. I have shared those experiences in some of my interviews and posts elsewhere on the pages of word wide web. But still, I would like to share a few things here.

From my young age, I used to write articles, stories, poems and various other write ups on print media. In fact, that experience helped me a lot to continue my blogging journey. Seeing my writings on the print media, one of my colleagues suggested me to start a blog of my own. Thus I started writing notes and letters on different free platforms and later I started my first blog page on the pages of Google’s Blogger platform. That page is still live, and you can see that HERE.

There are a good number of people to remember as my mentors. Dr. Johnson C Philip tops in that list. He is a scientist and a Christian Apologist, who guided me in this regard. He was one of the top writers in Google’s Knol pages, and he suggested me to start writing there, and I started writing Knol articles and unfortunately after a two-years period Google stopped publishing Knol pages due various technical difficulties, and they made a provision to migrate our contents to the WordPress platform. Thus we started using WP as our blog pages, but unfortunately, it was a bit difficult for me to follow the technical aspects of WP in the beginning and at the same time I have a bit knowledge of Blogger pages and I concentrated on Blogger.com pages and migrated all my contents from wp to blogger pages. Then at a later stage, I bought my first domain pvariel.com and now I have several blogger pages and three other own domain pages and the journey continues.

In Blogging Field, Content Ideas are the most important part. So, How you get ideas for next articles?

Yes, in blogging as someone said: “Content is King” and in a measure that is true too! So creating content is the main part of blogging, every day numerous contents are created by bloggers and finding out a new subject is a bit difficult task. I used to get ideas for my next post mainly from my interaction with my readers and like-minded people. Of course, sometimes some feedback of readers will help me to write another post. And of course, by reading a lot of material on a daily basis, we get different kinds of ideas to create or develop new contents. A blogger can be a talented writer but at the same time he should be a good reader too, and these days a good listener too. These days bunches of materials are developed by experienced authors and bloggers via different media, writing, webinars, podcasts, etc. listening such podcasts or webinars will increase our knowledge and get lots more idea to develop more contents. Not only that the engagement with fellow bloggers (via chat, and conversation) too will pave the way to create or develop new contents. Yes, a close encounter with other fellow bloggers will give some kinds of suggestions to create new contents. Also, I get an idea for new contents from the various Forums, groups and IM platforms where I am a member, the interaction with the members there we get a lot of ideas for creating new contents. These are some of the means I get to create my new posts.

What are the Must use tools for Bloggers according to you?

There are a good number of tools which can be used by a blogger on a daily basis. Some are very expensive, and some are free. Among them the main tools I use are some wonderful plugins like Akismet, Add to share button, SEO by Yoast, SumoMe, Mailchimp, Google Analytics, Click to Tweet, Snipping Tool, etc. are some of the essential tools I use regularly.

As a Blogger, How you manage and work with a team of authors?

Working with different authors is a bit difficult task since most of them are involved in various activities and coping up with their timings are indeed a very complex one. But still I manage to work with them finding their available time, and accordingly, I adjust my timings, and I work.

Anything you would love to share with Rising Bloggers to help them build their career in Blogging Field?

Yes, I have few suggestions for the rising bloggers, let me put it this way the newbie bloggers. Every day hundreds and hundreds of bloggers are born, and everyone tries to reach the goal, but, sadly after entering into the arena a half of them sometimes more than 75% will quit due to various reasons. Blogging is not an easy task as many thinks, in fact, it is not an easy task instead it is a tedious job and it needs more concentration or attention and time in the initial stage. If one can’t shell out these things, he can’t survive in this industry. So consistency and persistence are two of the main aspects one need to concentrate upon when entering into this field of blogging. These things, along with a bit of hard work can achieve good results in this much competitive field.

Another main thing a new blogger should concentrate is, as I said elsewhere, one must be a good reader. Read five to six or if possible more than that posts of experts in your niche and thoroughly watch or understand how and what they produced and how they react to their interactors. After reading more and more contents in your niche, develop a writing style of your own, please do not copy the style of the influencers. And notice that along with your reading try to make sensible feedback from your reading and post that in the comment boxes. This will create a kind of engagement with the authors you read. This is one of the main strategies I followed in the beginning of my blogging journey and it helped me to get a good number of friends in the field of blogging. And I still continue this strategy and am sure to say that it procure lots of benefits in the long run. Though in the beginning the places where your comments appear may not get any attention from the blog authors, but don’t worry or don’t quit, go on and visit their pages and post constructive feedback on their writings, I am sure they will respond to your feedback, and you start a relationship with them, and that may go into a long relationship in the long run. Remember no blogger will like to hear a comment like Great! Nice posts, Awesome or Amazing, etc. with one-word generic comments. Instead, influencers hate to hear or read such comments. So make sure you drop a good and debatable, genuine comment from the bottom of your heart! Also, make sure to visit fellow bloggers pages daily a minimum of 5 to 6 pages and read well and post meaningful comments. Remember when you comment stick to the subject you read. If you have more time, do this on a daily basis and accordingly increase the number of it. I am sure this strategy will fetch you a lot of good results in the long run. In this regard I would like to suggest you, to read one of my recent posts on this subject. Power of blog comments

I wish all the newcomers in this field a bright and successful blogging career.

What is the story behind your Blogging Career? Means How you started and who was your idol behind developing your career in Blogging?

I started to blog to share the knowledge, as I learned a lot of things from others’ blogs. So, for me, it is all about to give as you take. Someone I follow in the blogging field? Actually, I’m a big fan of Brian Dean, and Neil Patel, their blogs are like comprehensive resources.

In Blogging Field, Content Ideas are the most important part. So, How you get ideas for next articles?

Ideas are tons everywhere, you just need to find them. When I need new ideas, I browse the popular blogs in the field, I don’t target the same topics, but I do a keyword research on that topic and see what is the problem that people try to solve. Spying the competitors is another way I do to get ideas.

What is more important for you? Content, SEO or Content Marketing?

All of them, you need to take care of all of them, a killer content that provides value, without SEO, is nothing. So, your efforts should be balanced. Also, you need to market your posts to get them found, it is not all about the SEO to get your posts found, so leave no stone unturned.

What are the Must use tools for Bloggers according to you?

I use a lot of tools. For the keyword research, I use Long tail Pro, MOZ Keyword Explorer, and SEMrush. For checking my backlinks, Ahrefs and Majestic are doing great!

As a Blogger, How you manage and work with a team of authors?

At the moment, I don’t have authors, as I write my own posts. But, it is like any ordinary team work, things should be crystal for every team member, so anyone knows his task clearly, and the specified deadline, also the method of communication should be specified from the beginning.

What is more important for you? Content, SEO or Content Marketing?

Google Drive is a must. I copy my blog posts to Google Docs. By having things stored in the cloud this way, I never have to worry about losing my files if something were to happen to my laptops. I can also access my files from anywhere, regardless of which computer I am using.

Many people like Trello for keeping things organized.

Social media promotion/scheduling tools are used by many bloggers too. These include Buffer, HootSuite, and more.

Canva is great for creating images and infographics.

I don’t use a lot of paid tools, actually. I’m a big fan of free stuff! 😉

As a Blogger, How you manage and work with a team of authors?
Generally speaking, I use Facebook chats as well as gmail to communicate with others. I also use Google Docs and Google Sheets (spreadsheets) and share an editable link with my chosen team, which allows all of us to work on the same project.

What is the story behind your Blogging Career? Means How you started and who was your idol behind developing your career in Blogging?

Anyway, Syed Balkhi is one of those bloggers by whom I inspired too much to keep blogging.

I think content is more important than anything. I’ve publishing articles on my newly launched blog, i.e. bloggingmotive.com and none of the article are optimised for SEO. I want to make sure articles that are published by me help bloggers build an ethical online business fueled by passive income. I want to help them. I don’t rely on SEO!

Which are the Must use tools for Bloggers according to you?

BuzzSumo, Majestic, Moz, Hootsuite, Crowdfireapp and more.
As a Blogger, How you manage and work with a team of authors?
We have a team of article writers now. So it’s always easy for me to manage my blog and thus to invest my compressed time on some other works. Nonetheless, I spend much of my time on Twitter and Quora to discover what are some obstacles out there that are stopping bloggers chase their dream through blogging.

Launch your blog (if you haven’t one already). Keep publishing useful and profound insights contents. Ignore SEO initially. Try to come up with the excellent blog post ideas. You can use BuzzSumo for this. Promote your content on Social Media, on forums (Quora is recommended.) Build email list from Day #1. Leverage the power of Webinars and freebies to grow your email list fast. Be sure to have a strong call-to-action button to convert your one-time visitor into subscriber and later on the customer. Try to win your visitor’s heart by solving their issues. That’s it! If you apply all these simple but useful strategies on your blog, for sure, your blog will be grown quite fast and thus more revenue.

 

Anuradha Chawla

What is the story behind your Blogging Career? Means How you started and who was your idol behind developing your career in Blogging?
During my job time, I chanced to witness one blogging event GetSetBlog and there I met some familiar bloggers. I learned about blogging in a strange way… And just commenced without a particular vision about future. But you see today; Blogging has not only found in me a writer but also has made me a good human being.. Who works for her own self. I went on writing and writing.

I had difficult times and sad situations even still facing sometimes, Just like you have in your new business. But Danish Wadhwa helped me in mastering my fear. I never knew that… I would someday recommend a person technically. But…It’s life; That does not go on your beliefs. It has its own way. Blogging has given me confidence. A destiny to live and pursue life.

In Blogging Field, Content Ideas are the most important part. So, How you get ideas for next articles?
1. I use a keyword research tool to generate a massive list of potential keywords and then organise these keywords accordingly to my blog categories and then use these keywords as ideas and work my way down on this list. 2. Borrow few ideas from my competitor list. 3. I mainly use Quora to find competitive questions in my niche. 4. One of the best ways is to conduct the interview and turn it into a blog post.

What is more important for you? Content, SEO or Content Marketing?
SEO and Content Marketing, Both is essential. But now that you realise the importance of each — how SEO leads content marketing?
I agree 300% the marriage of content marketing with SEO is a necessity. SEO leads content marketing as it is the foundation of a robust website. On the flip side, perfect SEO will not work without

In many cases, we find it would have a much higher ROI if pages were re-worked rather than creating new and fresh content. Without good architecture and an apparently planned out content strategy, creating content is not nearly as effective toward getting new visitors.

Without a technically reliable website that performs excellent SEO methods, original and great articles work will not achieve their potential reach to visitors in search results. Real SEO is much more than XML sitemaps and Meta descriptions. SEO most certainly will produce more traffic if done correctly (and higher quality traffic that converts more frequently to a sale). I think it is data driven science.

Which are the Must use tools for Bloggers according to you?
Must Use Blogging Tools I Can’t Live Without:
1. WordPress
2. Google Keyword Planner & Long Tail Pro
3. Grammarly
4. Yoast SEO plugin
5. Canva
6. Trello
7. Google Analytics
8. Buffer
As a Blogger, How you manage and work with a team of authors?
Right, Now I am the Only person who is handling the content of my blog.

Anything you would love to share with Rising Bloggers to help them build their career in Blogging Field?
Write for yourself first & foremost. Neglect the fact that anyone else will read what you write; just focus on your thoughts and figure out how to put those into words. Write it, and they will come. You won’t become an A-list blogger overnight. Do not be pessimistic when your blog posts do not get the recognition you believe they deserve. Be persevering and consistent and accept slow progress to keep the flame alive in your blogging struggles.

 

Umesh Singh

What is the story behind your Blogging Career? Means How you started and who was your idol behind developing your career in Blogging?
I started blogging in 2011 but some personal reasons, I could not continue until 2014, when I met my friend Shubhanshi.

She encouraged me to do blogging again and helped me at every stage I needed her help.

There are few people in the blogosphere whom I idolize and respect is Neil Patel, Harsh Aggarwal, Brian Dean, and Pradeep.

In Blogging Field, Content Ideas are the most important part. So, How you get ideas for next articles?
Yes, I agree with you. The most challenging task people face after publishing their post is, now what? What topic should they cover now? They sit for hours in front of their laptop, scratching their head but nothing comes in their mind. How do I know? Because I have faced the same issue until I developed my own style to find content ideas? I get content ideas from users, I follow influencers blog post and forums and see what topics more people are interacting and commenting if that topic relates to my blog audience, I pick them and create content around them. This is a simple yet powerful method to creating best content. Give your readers what they want from you. Don’t create content on your assumption.

What is more important for you? Content, SEO or Content Marketing?
Good question. All are important to create a successful online business. But if you are asking me to choose one I will go with content marketing.

SEO and content wouldn’t be effective unless it reaches to the right audience.

It is worthless to create content that doesn’t reach the right audience or ranking to a low-quality content.

But, when you do content marketing you create high-quality content and deliver it to the right audience, that’s the reason I will choose content marketing.

Which are the Must use tools for Bloggers according to you?
Bloggers life have become much easier than before because of powerful blogging tools. The web is full of blogging tools, and one can easily confuse when you have to pick only limited.

My suggested tools for bloggers are Grammarly, Buzzsumo, Google Keyword Planner, Snappa.io, and Mail Chimp.

As a Blogger, How you manage and work with a team of authors?
I have created an editorial calendar. When I have to work with the team of writers, I arrange a meeting that could be both online and offline where I ask them what are their requirements as well as I tell them what I want from them.

By doing work this way we cut the chances of confusion almost zero and works get done perfectly.

Anything you would love to share with Rising Bloggers to help them build their career in Blogging Field?
Yes, actually I have a lot, but I can’t share them all because of limited space.

But still, I would like to share my best tips with rising blogging star.

First of all, define your goal before you start blogging.

Ask yourself the following questions:

Why did you start blogging?

Who is going to get benefit from your blog?

How can provide them with the best information that they are expecting from you?

Once you find the answers to the above questions, make a solid blogging strategy and stick with it. No matter what happens never give up. Blogging isn’t for those who are looking for overnight success, it’s a long term goal you have to keep its time.

Good Luck!

 

Vinay Katiyar
What is the story behind your Blogging Career? Means How you started and who was your idol behind developing your career in Blogging?
I started blogging back in 2013 after watching a classmate’s earning but soon enough I gave up due to lack of guidance.

In March 2014, I started again. But, this time I met a few bloggers (Swadhin Agrawal from DigitalGyd, Suprabhat Mondal from MoneyGossips & Iftekhar Ahmed from iftiSEO) who’re still my good friends who helped me learn the basics & advance things in blogging.

3 years down the line and I am still a blogger and doing great with blogging and my life. I would say these three guys are the reason I am a blogger and earning well.

In Blogging Field, Content Ideas are the most important part. So, How you get ideas for next articles?
Honestly, I never struggled with new content ideas for my articles. We make it complex by thinking it is hard but in reality, it is a really easy task. All you’ve to do is focus on what is going around you & your niche and you will never get out of content ideas for your next article.

What is more important for you? Content, SEO or Content Marketing?
Content. For me, blogging is all about giving value to my readers. And, by providing quality content we can give value to our readers.

SEO & Content Marketing are also important but these are two of the many methods to help you get your content in the front of your readers. So, until you don’t have valuable content to share, there is no use of SEO or Content Marketing.

Which are the Must use tools for Bloggers according to you?
There are numerous tools out there but I would like to mention the ones I personally use.

1. Google Keyword Planner for Keyword Research
2. Google Analytics for Traffic Analysis
3. Ahrefs for Backlink & Competition Analysis
4. Grammarly for proofreading articles.
5. SerpMojo App for Keyword Rank Tracking

As a Blogger, How you manage and work with a team of authors?

Currently, I just outsource content from 2 writers on regular basis. All I do is create a basic template of how I want the content to be formatted and they write it. As simple as that!

Anything you would love to share with Rising Bloggers to help them build their career in Blogging Field?
Yes, I would love to share a few things that I’ve learned over my 3 years journey as a blogger.

First of all, I would suggest you stay patient. In my journey, I’ve met a few thousand bloggers until now and I noticed that they don’t have patience at all.

Blogging is not some “Get Rick Quick” scheme. It is a process where you learn and then implement your learning. And, then you earn later with your experience.

The second thing I would suggest is to “build your network and grow with them”. One thing I’ve noticed in Indian blogging community is that they try to pull others down to succeed themselves.

It might help you in short-term but it will not work for long term. Over the last 3 years, I’ve met many bloggers online as well as personally and I always try to help them grow and learn something from them. So, whenever I need a help they’re always ready to help me out.

So, always try to find something positive in all situations and you will grow. Always try to grow your network and it will benefit you in long term. Always try to help people with no expectations from getting something back from them.

Third and the most important advice – “Don’t rush for money. Be patient and build a system”.

Most of us don’t realize this thing and regret later. The majority of the bloggers are working day and night just to fulfil their short-term needs but in long term, they’re left with nothing.

So, I suggest all the rising bloggers invest a part of your earnings every month and try to automate or speed up your regular process. Once you’ve built a system, it will keep making you money without you spending time on it and then you can move on to try some new things.

Try to follow these three suggestions and I can guarantee you will never face any blogging or financial problem again in your life.

Thanks Adarsh for the roundup post.

What is the story behind your Blogging Career? Means How you started and who was your idol behind developing your career in Blogging?
I started blogging in May 2012. At the time I had barely even read a blog before, let alone created one. While I did have some history with free blogs (I had created a couple when I was much younger), I had been well away from the realm of online content creation for close to a decade. My draw to blogging was predicated on a desire to quit my job. I figured that blogging might be a good way of making money, one way or another.

In Blogging Field, Content Ideas are the most important part. So, How you get ideas for next articles?
One of the biggest challenges for content marketers is idea generation. Content marketing relies on quality and volume; you can’t sacrifice one for the other. I always follow some tools & blogs before writing content topics. Some of them are buzzsumo, inbound marketing, shoutmeloud, keyword planner by google and more!

What is more important for you? Content, SEO or Content Marketing?
Content Marketing Is Important. Today’s prospects have a strong appetite for good information but more powerful resistance to the so-called “hard sell.” Most of us research products and services online before making a purchase.

We 3 ( Prakhar Shrivastav, Mihir Gadhvi and me ) started 3nions together in Jan 2016 after failing in something that we did start in 2014. Failure is the best teacher in our case. We learned a lot from our mistakes and we wanted to tell or inform others about the myths related to WordPress and SEO. Our aim has always been to share our past experiences so that it can help people in not making those mistakes we made in our past. Idols ? There are a lot of them. Neil Patel, Joost de Valk ( founder of Yoast SEO plugin ), Brian dean, Syed Balkhi, Harsh Patel sir and much more. Our idols have now become our rivals.

Nothing is impossible. We used to work very hard in the beginning but nothing was making sense because we did our best but the outcome was not that good. So, keep working and never give. Patience is the key to success. Now we are getting better results and ranking high on the search engines. We never invested a single rupee in the promotion. You don’t need that in the beginning because there are many free tools and plugins better than paid ones.

Overlook the way that any other person will read what you compose; simply concentrate on your considerations, thoughts, conclusions and make sense of how to articulate those. Compose it and they will come.
