If someone asks you What’s the best way to Build a Successful Blog? What will your answer be? (don’t forget to share it in comments). Here’s my answer! Simply, own qualities which Probloggers possess! Who’re Probloggers! I’ve written a short definition of word Problogger, I ain’t sure that it’s OK.. So, don’t worry. Hope you’ll be agreed on my definition;
“Problogger” = (Professional Blogger). Blogger, who has achieved success in blogging or has a HUGE experience of blogging. e.g. Darren Rowse. Or a person perfectly has a great knowledge, expertise in his/her particular niche.
So, how one can catch out the qualities of pro ones? Do we to build a blog like theirs? No!
All is what, we’ve to find out their qualities and have to own them! Also develop your own strategies to market your blog differently, intelligently and perfectly in the blogosphere if you’ve some worth reading content (needed, when you don’t have an established blog). Follow, this simple tip as far as possible. It’ll hopefully be very beneficial to you (if you’re a blogger). As, I’m also a one like you are (possibly).
So, our goal (probably) is same. I mean, my goal is learning problogging and hopefully yours too.
Qualities of Probloggers
So, I thought. It would be a really good idea of compiling a list of those plain qualities in a blog post and then making it publish at GuidePlease.com, to let our readers get the most important qualities of Probloggers’. So, here it starts.
1. Work Hard
This is the greatest quality that if a person or blogger don’t have it! Then, he/she can never have the chance to glimpse at success in blogging (never.), but also in all the things that are done working hard except those which are VERY easy, or bad things (gambling like etc.). People think that blogging is a place, where they can earn a great deal of money very quickly without working hard. But, they forget that ‘Success lies behind Hard Work‘. What I wanted to show you from this quality is not hard to understand, all matters hard work. If one doesn’t. Then, forget that success will ever be there with him/her.
Brian Clark, Darren Rowse and Daniel Scocco are all probloggers (you know) and they were never like they’re NOW. A single thing changed their lives, here’s it. Hard Work but on RIGHT things. Do it.

2. Never Give up
Failures are one of important aspect of humans lives, we all someday were failure for sure! Why? Because, you’re failed so that you could learn from it (take it as a blessing from God). Everyone goes through this, this is what enables you to learn from itself. Making mistakes are included in humans nature OK. So, we make it. We learn from it. But, still there are awesome mans, who got their accomplishment because they were failures earlier and didn’t give up TRYING to achieve the goals they’re living for. You’ve to do it and have not to worry that you did it. Instead of that, enjoy the learnings waiting for you from the failure. Giving up always an option but it’s not only the option. Enjoy your failures. And don’t think of Give up ever, give up if you’re after what that is wrong (recommended).
3. Wish to Achieve Goal
We cannot be succeeded if we don’t have a goal for doing a particular work. Isn’t it? Bloggers are simple people with money is being sowed in their minds while dreaming in most stories, I’m known of. You’ve any goal? That you want to accomplish like I’m having a goal of being a Problogger (I love this). You also would have been struggling for a particular goal, but do you have strong desires to accomplish? It is the thing that I want you to. You must have to be steadfast in case you’re running after something, that you love! Have powerful wishes to achieve your goal. Firmly, it’ll help you to overcome errors in your journey of accomplishment. Be steady! Same, BIGGIES (probloggers) have done, when they would not had achieve their goals . You aren’t that different from those who’ve got what they had been working on.
Consistency means to work, process or to perform a particular task regularly without changing anything over a period of time. Why one should need this? Merely, it is the quality of doing the same work, performing a task e.g. publishing a post daily, writing etc. One thing, I’ve got from those probloggers activities whom I examine is that they’re consistent on their schedules for various things like researching about the topic, writing, publishing and networking (possibly, I’m correct). If a blogger isn’t consistent, then he/she cannot be a success because they don’t stick to things that are needed for a successful journey. Be consistent with your posting schedule and also on building a network that is essential for natural traffic.
5. Sociable – Being friendly
Sociable means talking, engaging and being friendly with other people (especially through social sites). Building a network around yourself, is excellent idea that probloggers are doing. A great deal of online engaging activities are taking place on facebook, twitter and on other social networking sites by these great bloggers, why they all spend enough time in building their network? One cannot understand, if he/she don’t know what can you earn from networking with like-minded people. Personally,
I’m trying to be sociable to build my own network around this blog. More than 60% of my day time, I spend on facebook, commenting other blogs, reading others’ blogs doing other social things that I think can help me build a better network. And my next target is Linkedin, because I’ve seen a good amount of professional bloggers are spending their time on this network. And are engaging with like-minded people, so do am I. From my personal experience with Linkedin of previous week, that I’m enough active at linkedin found that this is a great place, where one can grow with other awesome bloggers not that quickly, but enough, also you can be advised from experts and professionals.
Make use of social networking sites in the way you can benefit from them. Not like what, you could distract yourself from the important work. Build Network, like probloggers.

6. Thirst for Knowledge
Probloggers read immense stuff on a regular basis online from the web, they are not blessed with knowledge-already, mean they don’t have the knowledge automatically nor from magic! But, they learnt the things they share, either from other people or from their own techniques, experiments. And then, collect the information they’ve, showing it in the form of a post! And that’s it. They’re thirsty, they’re lovers of knowledge! They’re ones who love to experiment and share results on their own blog, to get it touched by people who need it. Unlike those, who want to write without reading about what they’re writing on . Similarly, you’ve to. Be thirsty for knowledge! Or write what you don’t know.
7. Not Money
Blogging is not all about earning a suitable money from it. But, it’s about exhibiting your own expertise, skill and all the things you know. It’s about SHARING. It’s about building a network online (I think). It’s about showing who you are. It’s never about being quick rich from blogging without HUGE efforts to grow. But, unfortunately here bloggers come to earn only without hard work. The bloggers who’ve got accomplished their goals were not running after money when their journey was on the track! but worked to make their blog a success, they cared about their readers, not about getting rich. In case, you want your blog to be a success for you. Forget about bucks in first place. And be sure, to run after money once you’ve a blog with a good feedback from Big bloggers about your blog so that you could get access to Lockers filled with big money.
8. Passionate about work
Before you get started with any kind of work, make it sure that you like spending time there. Be passionate about it, proud to have such a work. It might not be possible for most to be passionate about a particular work. And if it is. Simply, try another work. For example, sometimes I got a great love for writing some posts for this blog, but couldn’t write. Because, I’m tired sometimes doing browse. I simply get rid of the work at such conditions and start watching any movie by any of my favorite actors on Youtube to rest for some time. Just after feeling that I’ve gotten rid of weary, IT’s TIME TO GET BACK! And I start once again, this will overcome writer’s block, will keep you motivated and thus you won’t loss your energy and other benefits are there.
I recommend doing it. And I’m sure Probloggers’ habit would be the same, except few ones.
9. Care About Readers
I’ve seen the way that Probloggers engage with their readers in each post and care about their readers always. Probloggers’ write content that engage readers and makes them obliged to comment and share their thoughts. They don’t care about their SERP (search engine results page) rankings, than their loyal readers. Love your readers, make them the thing that you want most. Concentrate on SEO too, but not more than your readers (said once again). Audience of a blog is greatly important asset for a blogger, you need to care about them.

10. Focus – On ONE Thing at a Time
Including me, newbies try to do all things at once like content generation, driving traffic, link building and other important things. Focusing separately on each important aspect of a successful blog is what needs to be done. Never multiple things (most times it harms), try to make schedules for all those which are needed. It is one of the things probloggers have, they’re patient. They don’t go through shortcuts, tricks, illegal things. Be consistent on your schedules, show your power to your fellow-bloggers and be different. Focus. But not like I did earlier. Intelligently, one by one on different aspect. This will empower you to focus completely, powerfully.
