There may be a number of blogs on the same subject, so copy pasting from another blog never works. It will be kill your passion on blogging. Do not use such a useless ways to blog and become a blogger. That will always worst.

Which will get higher search ranks in google, bing, yandex and all other search engines. Also while produce unique contents, your readers will always with you. they will never depend other bloggers.

Blogging Tip#2:Keep blog design clean, simple and eye catchy
If you are started your blog for a passion and now it became a full time career, the next key point to be kept is that about your blog design. Blog with great design will be added advantage for any of the professional blog.
Great design will attract visitors to read your blog posts. But the design should be simple, modern and eye catchy. Don’t make over design that load faster your blog.
The most recommended color scheme for your blog site is white and one of the dark color. The white color may be main or primary color which covers in the main content area of your blog. And that dark color may be in your blog footer. You can use any other color that make a visitors eye bad impression. Many of the people with varying ages today read articles on web, So the aged people have significant frustration with bad color. So keep these design points that will work for your posts.
If you are using wordpress as blogging platform, there are a number of themes are available for blogging, which are premium themes are free themes. You can select any of the theme and use it. I have selected my theme as logger from theme forest.
By default, it is white primary color with grey shade,. but i don’t like those. So i have changed the site color to those you are seen in my site sajeetech.com. and secondary color as red. Footer color as black.
I have take 4-5 days completely to make design process of sajeetech.com, which makes me completely satisfied by the design sense. Now i am completely satisfied with my blog design, by hearing many complements form my friends.

Blogging Tip#3: Get graphics with quality images
Images can convey message simply than many text. So if you want to convey something to reader, you have to post quality images with your blog post and then write blogs. After seeing the images, your readers will get some ideas that you are going to say, and they will get grasped quickly what you are said by the support of the image you are posted at the very beginning of your blog post.
In SEO point of view, you have to give attention in image posting. You have to post images with seo optimized to get your blog search engine friendly. The main part in optimizing the image to make search engine friendly is that you have to add alt tag for your images posted.
For example, you have to write description for images for what you are posted that.
if you posted images about google chrome tips you have to write alt tag for the image alt=”google chrome tips” in your image tag.
Blogging Tip#4: Word count in your post
Next thing you have to consider is that about the number of counts of word in your post. Don’t write blog post with 100-150 words, which are even worst. You will have such a subject that can express or convey your thoughts to your readers in that number of counts, you can do in such very critical cases. Otherwise you have to write a blog post with at least 500-800 number of words. You can write posts with more than that number of counts. google search algorithm also considers the depth of post to get it rank higher.
Blogging Tip#5: Update Regularly
Don’t detach from your blog for a long time. Always get keep in touch with your blog. Add blog posts regularly. You can add 3 posts per week at least. For a full time blogger, he will post blog each and every day and he keeps his reader in touch.
Research found regularly updating blogs will get higher rank in search result. Not only update with your blog with new post, you have to update your older posts with newer information and get links to them in sidebar or footer widget that will identify your readers about last updated posts.
Blogging Tip#6: Do seo
This point is not to be kept in lower position of the list. SEO is an indivisible part of a professional blog SEO (Search engine optimization),. people want to see the posts that we have posted in our blog. The one of the important method of getting this goal is absolutely search engine optimization of our blog. Do seo for each and every posts in our blog which will not be ignored.
The plug in that you could use may be social sharing plugin, social following plugin, seo plugin, cache plugin , contact form plugin etc. I will write article about later and redirect you via this page.

writing only is not a job of a professional blogger. He have to boost up his blog and post in many ways by various methods including SEO.
Another important thing to do is to submit url of blog and posts in search engines and webmaster tools such as google search tools( Formerly google webmaster tool), bing webmaster tool, active search result, exact seek etc. You have to promote your blog by submitting your url in these search engines.
