It is important that once you have committed to the journey of blogging that you stay connected with it. The principles of successful blogging which I will discuss in this post would try to highlight some fundamental components that can shut the back door of your blog.
1. Write Like You Are Talking Professionally
Take blogging like you are dealing with a client whom you have never met. For example, when you receive a call from an unknown caller, do you go about using slang or impolite words? I assume the answer is a no! Blogging isn’t different, approach every topic and commenter professionally. Take blogging as an extension of your voice. Be polite and talk in a language that everyone can understand.

2. Edit One Last Time Before Publishing
Avoiding common grammatical flaws and ensuring that your spellings are correct. This gives you a better command over your blog. Overall, you get respect from your readers. When you know how to use sub-headings and how to break paragraphs, your readers will see you as someone who care about them. Readers will not spare you, if alot of grammatical errors are found in your blog post. They will think you are telling them; “hey I know you want this information, but I can’t spell, please swallow this sholveware through your throat”. How does that feel? Not just cool. The point is this: No matter how quick you want to get done with that post, just take a few minutes to correct any error that might have happend without your concious thought.
3. Treat Your Commenter’s Like Kings
As you journey through the blogging ecosphere, it is important to recognize your commenter’s. By recongnization, I mean attending promptly to the needs of your commenter, answering questions to the best of your ability. If you loose one commenter, you loose ten readers. That’s how it works. When you have numerous comments without interaction from the author, if feels like a slap right in their faces. Be polite in your interaction. You would always come across trolls, no matter how you try to be professional, but by enforcing a strict commenting policies, trolls would find it difficult to dwell in your blog.
4. Be Accurate and Research your Topic Properly
Successful bloggers know this principle. No matter what niche your blog is, it is better to always provide accurate information about an event or a tutorial. Should your readers discover elsewhere that you provided them a false information, the trust they had for you will diminish. No man is perfect, and we are all prone to mistakes but you can also show your sincerity by leaving an update to correct a false information within the error-post.
Advertisement is good. Infact, it is fantastic and brings reward for you hardwork but if not done properly, the reward might turn out to be a regret. It is important that you do not scare your readers with to much advertisement, when a reader find it difficult to differentiate the loads of advertisement on your blog from your content, it could retard the retaining factor of that reader. Everyone loves revenue, but when you force it on readers especially with low quality content, you might as well be opening the backdoor of your blog.
