Best blogs that make a lot of money have a lot of readers so if you want to have success with your blog, focus on getting lots of readers. There are many ways to go about getting readers, but you should know that only about a handful of them work to get you the readers that you desire. Best blogs have a readership level in the thousands.

It could take some time to build this up from scratch or you can pay for advertising and set up a capture page to get users to subscribe to your blog.
Starting a personal blog is one of those things many people have thought of doing. And because it’s so easy to get started, most of those people have actually created one.

Some have even managed to create pretty successful personal blogs out of something that started out as just a hobby. But what’s the key to running a best blog and popular personal blog? What separates successful blogs from blog amateurs? In this post, I’ll be sharing some key elements of what the best blogs have in common.
You will find 5 common things that the best blogs have in common:

It could take months. It could take years. In any case, patience really is needed as a key trait here since you never know how long it takes before actual traffic starts flooding your blog. The greatest bloggers out there have honed their mindsets to play this game of patience and keep the blog posting juices flowing until that happens. And this shouldn’t come as a surprise: believe it or not, they’re primarily doing it out of passion, rather than a raw motivation for making money.

Blogs are also known to keep everything as simple as possible. However, that doesn’t mean the value of the content that’s being shared has to suffer. There needs to be a nice balance between readability, understandably and the value of a post. The best blogs to follow keep information easy to read.

This way of creating content matches the KISS principal (keep it simple, stupid) which believes that content be as easy to read and follow as possible so it doesn’t take the readers all too much time and effort to understand something or do it themselves.

The success of a personal blog quite often depends on the post frequency as well. That’s because it’s not just about posting good content once and letting it slide afterwards. That kind of popularity will get a personal blog nowhere. If anything, it’ll only make it look like its best time has passed.

The art of creating a well-functioning and popular blog is finding the right post frequency that matches both the blogger’s and the target audience’s schedule. There is no use in posting too often if the content that’s being provided doesn’t live up to the expectations visitors have. Likewise, posting too rarely will not keep your visitors engaged.

Again, reiterating on the subject of passion: if you don’t have genuine passion for what you do, you can forget about topping the best bloggers list. You will do it, irrespective of the money, and display an unnerving willingness to dig deep in order to uncover as much detail as possible on your content.

This is why readers keep going back to a specific blog because of the unique insights which seem to quench their thirst for information every time. For example, say, you’re writing a blog on men’s fitness and wants to be like Kris Gethin.

Put yourself in the reader’s shoes; what do they want to read, given the age we’re in and peoples’ demanding schedules? Go the extra mile and provide them with every bit of relevant information, right down to meal plan details and best time to work out, workout duration, detailed fitness plans, causes of injuries, remedies to heal injuries, best available supplements, or frequency etc.
