10. Nice Format
Your format must not be annoying or unreadable. Let me explain with example for easy understanding.
Which format do you like? 😀
No need of further explanation I think you get it. I personally advise you to write in font size 14 to 16. That will be easy for all to read because everyone doesn’t’ have a vision of 6/6.
9. Stick to the Topic
Never go beyond the scope of what you are writing about. For example, if you are writing about How Google engine works, the best way is to first write the algorithm you know and then explain each line step by step without messing it up. Don’t get started on writing about Larry page. Remember he is not your topic.
8. Be Unique
Uniqueness is one of the most important qualities of good bloggers. Write what you love and love what you write. Remember your blog is an extension of you and it’s your own brand. Be loyal towards your reader. Always provide them an original piece of information.
7. Never Steal
I think we all know there is some difference between following and copying. I highly recommend you to write yourself. Don’t even think of stealing from others. Google will penalize your blog if it is copied from somewhere else. So it’s better to write yourself and Create Something instead of stealing.

You are allowed to write in informal way but never raise your tone. Do be too judgmental. Write in a polite way. Be cool and calm and make new friends through your blog. Don’t argue about a topic that you don’t know. Just stay cool, believe me this will help you a lot.
3. Love Your Haters
HATERS make us FAMOUS
Don’t get personal or panic even if someone hates you enough to send rude comments, emails or any kind of violent response. You must develop a mature personality inside yourself. This will extremely help in your whole life. Remember to be popular you must be a mediocrity.
2. Promote your Blog
This activity is very important for your blog. Keep promoting and sharing your blog with your friends, neighbors, relatives and to all whoever you know. Always give appropriate responses to comments. Use RSS Feed in your blog. You should use the social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google+, MySpace, LinkedIn, Pinterest etc. Social sites have capability to make your blog go viral.
1. Content is The King
Choose what you write. Select those Content which you are master in. Give appropriate and efficient information. Make good use of Google Adwords in selecting your keyword in the title. Be careful about your title and meta tags. Write the content in short with full of useful information.
