Five Qualities of a successful Problogger

Experts have been talking about high page rank, great traffic, social bookmarking sites and directories as some of the major keys to be a successful problogger. These are all true, and nobody denies that. However, to get there needs a lot of good qualities and here are some of them:

1.0 Humility:
A successful problogger posts inspiring comments on other blogs rather than insulting words. He also provides time to reply on comments to his blog even just to say “thank you” and “sorry” if necessary. Visitors are glad to visit them regularly.

2.0 Originality: A successful problogger do not just copy articles from others without permission or least mentioning the originator’s name. Moreover, he uses his own words to discuss an old topic to make it fresh again. His mentors will appreciate it and will even help him to improve more.

3.0 Credibility: A successful problogger do not posts false articles, disgusting topics and blind items that might destroy personalities. He makes deep researches on each detail before sharing it. His articles can easily be approved by huge directories, thus creating great traffic to your blog.

4.0 Generosity: A successful problogger unselfishly shares his knowledge without asking for anything in return except maybe for a backlink. He engages himself in helping neophytes through responding to queries in forums and threads. He also suggests improvements even without being asked for. His name will be passed on even without his self-promotion.

5.0 Consistency: A successful problogger is consistent and firm with his ideas. He does not change his mind easily, nor give up on something he believes in just for the sake of money or popularity. His followers will do the same thing and therefore, his community will grow continually.

In short, a successful problogger is a human problogger but sometimes being human is the hardest part.

Nice post, I agree with your points. However, I'm left wondering where I fall. I guess someone else will have to tell me. Maybe I will put up a post asking my reader what they think OR a poll.
Thanks for sharing. Cheers.

Hi Hor Ny Ang Moh! No offense but I really think you should really act on it. I understand your site is quite adult, but since we are living in a free world I guess it is your choice, just hope no child bloggers are viewing them.
Thanks for the comment.

Another point
6. Successful probloggers are those who started early. Remember Darren Rowse of probloggers.net or John Chow or even yugatech These guys started early and they had early mover advantage. Even now, there is still a lot of scope for becoming successful in the philippines. There is STILL a lot of room. But a few years down the line, it might take 10 times as much effort to get the same kind of traffic or recognition as we get now!

So, don't waste this opportunity and keep on blogging. It will pay rich dividends when you least expect a few years from now.

Bloggers must always aim for the long haul.

A very good point. Sometimes, I wish I knew about about blogging when I was younger because I really love communicating with other people through writing.

By the way, thanks for allowing me to be a part of your wonderful site.

This is a very different list than I am used to reading about. I guess being as personable as possible is a good idea. I had a question about the originality piece. What are the drawbacks from using free reprint articles from online? Email me at Hooksey@gmail.com if you have a second to explain... Thanks

Hi Julian,

Actually, the drawbacks will depend on how you use the articles.

If you are using it for your blog, you may get banned by search engines because they are very strict in duplicate content. You may also be charged with plagiarism.

If you are using it just for personal reading, I think you will have no problem. But if you share with others without telling them that you just copied it, you may loose trust if they found out that you're just lying.

With this, you gave me an idea to make separate post but then, I will have to do some research.

Thanks for dropping by. I just hope you left a link to your blog so I can visit it too.

Hi,

I wanted to find out if there was any training available for a corporate enviroment on how to become a good blogger.

One of the biggest challenge is that internal culture has to be changed so any information would be useful.
