So you’ve taken the big step of finally starting your own blog? Don’t back down!
Many bloggers are overly energetic at the beginning, but eventually slow down, almost to a halt. To make sure that you don’t do the same, upload blogs regularly, having a fixed time period after which you post a new blog. Choose this number wisely since your audience would be waiting for your blog on that day. As a beginner, it’s best to start off with one or two blogs per week. Send the rest of the week promoting previous blogs. A rule of thumb is to promote blogs a week or two after posting them.
While the aforementioned inform is important to know the preferable pattern, if you wish to be a successful blogger, try to save as much time as you can. Blogging can be a daunting task since there’s a lot that goes into it. You’d have to invest a lot of time into making them perfect by investing plenty of time (even while proofreading).
Suppose you read something intriguing about android app development companies, and you wish to write about it. What you would normally do first is to research the topic for facts and stats pertaining to the topic. This would take you about an hour or so as a beginner. If it takes you any lesser than an hour, that’s great!
Next up, you would start writing all that you remember from what you read about these companies. Once done, you would have to formulate ideas into sentences and sentences into paragraphs to make a complete blog. Upon completing the blog, go out for a walk and come back to proofread what you’ve written. And proofread at least thrice. Trust us, your blog would improve every single time you proofread it. All of this would take you three to four hours.
Now that your blog is ready to be uploaded, you’d realise that you’ve spent quite some time in writing the blog. A lot of this time can be saved by using mobile apps. Here are some of the best apps that you can use as a blogger:
You made your blog on this platform. Maybe you didn’t but most probably your blog is on WordPress. Having the WordPress app on your mobile phone would help you A LOT! If you’re someone who likes to write on-the-go, download this app now. From creating posts to editing and publishing them, this app would help you in everything. You could also moderate comments, post photos or videos from your mobile’s camera and check analytics with the app.
You saw it coming, didn’t you? If WordPress is here, Blogger can’t be far behind. It is another famous blogging platform for beginners. It has plenty of limitations which might make you want to uninstall it and to make your blog on WordPress instead, but if you give it some time, you would realize that as a beginner, half of the features available to you on either apps is of no use to you.
As a blogger, you would have a multitude of ideas which would come to you in the oddest of times. Finding a laptop or a desktop at such times might be difficult for you. Hence it is best to keep a lightweight app to write ideas down on your mobile quickly even while you’re travelling. The best app you’ll find for this need of yours is Google Keep. It even allows you to pin important notes to the top so that you can see it instantly when you open the app.
