It seems like everywhere you look, someone has an opinion on blogging. Perhaps the best authorities on the subject are those behind the blogs with the biggest cult following. Imagine our delight when one of our Network Partners, Kingdom of Style, weighed in on what they believe to be the keys to success.
Queen Michelle offers solid tips for the beginner blogger or the experienced blogger who has lost their way. One of the best things about this post are the comments from Kingdom of Style readers, offering their opinion on what makes a blog great, and why they keep coming back.
However, the biggest lesson to be gleaned from this post is that it’s not always about your traffic numbers. Sure, it’s a great feeling to be the biggest blog in the sandbox, but that’s not always what matters the most. Engaged readers are a valuable asset for a blogger to have, as their involvement gives you a following and credibility that will take you much further than random search engine traffic.
The truth of the matter is that bloggers will run their blogs the way they see fit. There are many, many types of blogs out there, and not every site is right for every one person. As they say, you can’t make everybody happy all the time. But you can strive to keep your readers coming back again and again and again.
