Blogging like a boss means knowing what to do, being confident in your abilities, being calm, competent, and productive.
So... how does one blog like a boss?
Easy. All it takes are a few ingredients. Five, to be exact.
1. Be yourself.
One of the biggest mistakes you fan make as a bloggers is to try to be someone else. You are not someone else. You will never be someone else. You are you!
Do not waste your time and energy trying to write like someone else, no matter how popular or successful they are.
Learn from other bloggers, but figure out who you want to be, and be that.
2. Be confident.
It’s easy to become discouraged when you see other bloggers who seem to have more creativity, a more-frequently-updated blog, more readers, more comments, more Facebook likes, and on and on.
You can waste so much time worrying about not measuring up that you completely lose sight of what you have to offer as a blogger.
Keep your head high. No matter what.
Know that any position is life is temporary, if we choose to work out way out of it.
Besides, wasting time worrying who's got the prettiest blog of them all is something that Disney villains tend to do, not super bloggers.
3. Be engaging.
A boss at blogging is friendly, free, and has a certain charisma. This is just the natural side-effect of being THAT good at what they do.
Interact with your readers and respond to their comments and emails as much as you can. Ask your readers for their advice and input and listen to what they have to say. Your readers want to know that you value them.
And you should, because without them, you’d have no audience to write for!
Don’t be afraid to try new things — even if they don't work out. Don’t always post the same things in the same way. Throw in some off-topic posts, photos or videos every now and then. Occasional surprises and unexpected posts will help keep things exciting.
4. Be authentic.
No one's looking for perfection; they are looking for authenticity. We all make mistakes and we all have our areas we struggle with. Don’t try to pretend that you are perfect.
Be honest, be open, and be vulnerable (but don't overdo it, because readers also don't like crybabies).
People will connect with authenticity, but they will run from hypocrisy.
5. Work, work, work.
A boss at blogging knows that you must work in order to get from where you're at to where you want to be.
This also means doing the work you often like to procrastinate on. Edit your posts, network with other bloggers, analyze your stats, learn as much as you can about your niche.
Laziness will never get you far.
