Whether you are in any profession or in blogging one should be specific to his daily habits and must follow some protocols if one wants to be on the next step on another day when he woke up. These protocols are set of rules that one should incorporate daily in order to get maximum mileage out of it. Same applies to blogging in which you need to do some important task on daily basis no matter how busy you are; otherwise your blog will not just fall short of traffic but also with revenue and growth.
Therefore in this post I will be sharing some of the points that you should do every day on regular basis. Implementing and following these tips will help you to win a long run race with minimal effort in blogging.
Some of bloggers says that you should update your blog daily.I don’t agree with this point but I definitely suggest writing on daily basis. Updating daily might cause low quality content but writing on daily basis means you are putting effort on daily basis to create great content at the end.
As a blogger one should be as much as perfect writer as he could and writing only improves if we practice more and more. So now onward make a habit of writing daily, whether it is hundred words or thousand.
Short terms goals are the key:
Short terms goals are always considered more effective as compared to larger and broader business goals. Whenever I say short term goals it refers to the goals that you should set daily on complete in short span of time. This way you would be able to split your broader goals into smaller ones which are easier to complete as compared to other.
For example this could be tweaking your template, making changes in your content strategy minority etc. This could include commenting on specific number of blogs, replying to specific number of comments, building specific back links etc. Now you can imagine after the completion of a month how much you would have earned by putting you small portion every day.

Reply to your comments:
This is one mistake most of bloggers do. In order to make a community around your blog you should respond to as much as comments as you could. Probloggers like Neil Patel has a habit of replying to each and every comment. You can see hundred of comments on a single post there. Ignoring a single comment can cause you to lose one potential reader. Although you should be able to figure out between spam comment and a genuine one and reply accordingly.
Be updated about the latest happening:
This is the most important habit you should have. Reading content related to your niche, remaining updated about latest happening in your field is something which is essential for you blog growth as well as yours. For example if you blog about SEO then you should follow searchengineland.com to remain updated with latest news of SEO. You can use any social media and follow the respective blogs and sites. Either you can subscribe them or use services like feedly to get all the updates via feeds.
If you are one of those who are unaware of trending, you might misguide your blog reader which ultimately leads to hurt their trust. For example if we talk about SEO blog, you should know the latest penalization on myblogguest.com community by Google which was the signal for guest blogging spamming. So if you are still using those old techniques of guest blogging, you might be in trouble.
You are allowed to take a break as well:
It’s not that you will fail If you miss a day blogging. We as a human need a break to refresh ourselves. Blogging become most tough if you stuck in between hurdles like writers block, lack of new ideas and content, lack of motivation etc.
You could always take a leave and cut yourself from every part of your blog.But that doesn’t mean that you go and enjoy for a month and so. 3-4 days vacation could be mind refreshing and you would definitely come with new stunning ideas for you blog.
Either it is blogging or any work you need to make a daily strategy and routine in order to become a professional and it also might takes years. These were some works you might not forget when considering your daily routine in blogging. It may vary from person to person and there are many others ways like promoting content, taking new courses etc which you can include to the list.
