So You Are A Wanna be A-List Blogger, Ugh!

Tuesday, November 28, 2006

Blogging Fame pictureWho does not want to be amongst the most popular and seeked out bloggers like the A-list bloggers are Wil Wheaton of WilWheaton.net and Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit. Being a part of bloggerati, is music to a blogger’s ears. Some people believe that if you are not in Technorati’s Top 100 blogs then your blog is rubbish. So how important it is for you to be amongst these A-list bloggers?

For being in Technorati’s Top 100 you need to have atleast 3000 blogs linking to you. As per today the top blog there is, engadget.com, having 25,994 blogs linking it. So as for Technorati its all the link game and you’ll have to play efficiently to be at the top.

Focusing too much on what is going to bring your blog on top, or being amongst the bloggerati, you will hamper the quality somewhere down the line. In fact, an effective business blog should never do it, because it would widen your prospective, and you would loose the purpose of your blog. Your blog should focus on the niche or market sector and designed to attract a specific audience interested in that area.

You don’t need to be a A-list blogger to be successful. Instead of being known as a celebrity blogger, its better to be known as an expert in your niche. For this you need to know your subject inside out. It will help you express and communicate better with your audience. Its all about how much you create a rapport with them. You can give such tips and tricks to your audience that only a few know.

You also need to keep up to date with what is happening in your industry. Subscribe a few good and relevant blogs’ feeds. Keep an eye on whatever is hot and happening and being talked about in the blogosphere. You will need to inform your audience about it. Give your views on it and ask for feedback.

One thing you need to be sure about, and I have talked about it before is to be passionate about what you write. If you are not, don’t ever expect your audience would be. Cover the subjects of your market and your parallel market, intelligently, anything that would be of help to your readers.

This all would help you build your credibility. Now, demonstrate your expertise through the information and knowledge that you share in your blog. Till you call yourself an expert, others wont(you don’t have to keep blabbering it out there). Use your articles to prove that.
Be a source of Information and News to your readers. Provide useful links and refer to others as well as your own work, so that they keep coming back to you whenever they need a piece of advice. Building relationships as we call it.

Writing and Posting is vital, otherwise why would anyone visit? But equally vital is contributing to other people's stuff. Visit others’ blogs and comment on them; put in a piece of advice. You can also write a post linking back to them. Use trackback where possible.

Being known as an expert in your field may pull in only a few thousand visitors, but each one of those will be your targeted audience. Not only that, you may attract other bloggers to link to you as well, and one day after all you turn out to be an A-list blogger. Be true to your business and in no time at all you will be successful.

Cheers to your Success,
Divya Uttam,
Happy Blogging.

It's true. Fame should be a side effect of success not the aim in itself.

"Its better to be known as an expert in your niche" I think is great advice. Thanks (again) for the post, Divya.

You are certainly right.

It's not an easy job to achieve the authority status.
