In one of my last articles we discussed the reasons why not to blog, due to the fact that if those are actually your reasons to blog, you will never be a successful blogger, and you will never achieve the highest of today’s privilege of becoming “Blogger Supreme” (hanse the title) which can lead to an increase in traffic and leads for your business.
One of the aspects of blog writing that I mentioned was not doing it for self indulging reasons. On the contrary, there is a need to write content that is original and interesting. Producing content that is actually original and interesting will make it more plausible that your blog will be noticed by potential clients, and may also assist you in becoming a thought leader in your industry someday in the future.
In order to attain this high-privileged sovereignty, you want your writing to consist of content that promotes opinions, discussions, sharing, and even disapprovals from time to time, which are only natural (Haters Gonna Hate). Nonetheless, it can be somewhat laborious to produce such material day in and day out, this is why I decided to write this “hand-out” blog with top tips on how to write outstanding content to become a “Blogger Supreme”.
Everyone has a different thought process when it comes to writing content. Plagiarism is the most beneficial one for the copycat. The plagiarist’s desire is to gain reputation as a high-graded blogger, but what they don’t take into consideration is that it is not an easy task to remove a copycat label once received. The internet, as we all know, has a long term memory for everything we do within its domain, which means, nothing truly disappears.
Despite that, this is not a black and white condition, as there are different levels between being an utterly plagiarist and sheer original. As we are all familiar with the concept that the internet, the final frontier of the blogger, is where ‘all’ man has gone before. As it is almost impartial to produce original ideas nowadays due to the vast amount of articles out there. But it doesn’t mean that your content cannot still be distinctive and remarkable. Even if a topic is written frequently, you still can write about it in the best way you possibly can. You must remember that you are a special snowflake and nobody else will have the exact experiences, knowledge and skill as you have; leverage this to bring something new to the table.
When it comes to being a “Blogger Supreme”, you need to have your own unique approach to address issues at hand, based on your own experiences, knowledge, skills, and write about it. Always remember that most people are looking at multiple solutions to a problem before deciding on the one that best fits them.
Which leads me nicely onto my next point…
Don’t be afraid or worried if people disagree with you. Remember that you are distributing advice, and advice is never an objective truth, advice is subjectively explanation of your own experiences. Think about it for a moment, having people disagree with your opinions and criticism them is great for a blog writer. If a relatively equal number of people both agree and disagree with you, it promotes your blog in the end no matter the type of comments you receive. Having said that, I am not advocating that you create provoking content (although it it can work for some people). For if there are more people that are criticizing your opinions than there those who are inspired by them, it means you are a long way towards achieving the objective of becoming a thought leader in your industry of expertise. This doesn’t mean that you should be afraid of criticism and intelligent debate. You will not move forward without criticism and that is fine; it is the oil that greases the gears of innovation. Once we get some good old fashioned criticism, we urge ourselves to do things better.
Don’t be afraid or worried if people disagree with you. Receive criticism with open arms, embrace it and learn from it. Once you understand the nature of being criticized, you will be on the right path towards becoming a true thought leader and a proper “Blogger Supreme”.
My last point is to touch base on how to generate new ideas. I am not allegedly saying that there is a magic potion or a secret recipe for having an original thought, but there are certainly things you can do to become better at it.
Become an expert on your subject matters. You have to read everything you can and gain as much knowledge possible on the topic. Notwithstanding, don’t just read articles and take on their ideas as your own, sit down and really think about what you have read. You can disagree and don’t be afraid to do so, have an opinion of your own and figure out how to articulate it. Write a piece that briefly explains why you disagree with a commonly held belief. Keep a notebook to write down your ideas and insights. We all had these eureka moments in the shower or when we just wondered about, only to have them evaporate into thin air when we sit down at the computer. Jot them down as they occur and you should always have something to write about.
