Blogging Tips: Staying ahead of the Curve

Stay Ahead of the Curve
I google search bloggers all the time. I soak up all the ideas and strategies that each blogger uses to attract readers, attract advertisers, and ultimately make money. Once I started trying to think ahead, everything was a lot easier for me. It is true that simply copying others is the best way to start, but once you do the math you quickly see why you need to stay ahead of the curve.

For instance, those that embraced Twitter right away (something I failed to do) and use it to its full potential can make paychecks upwards of $400 funneling readers into their blogs. Twitter is still useful for this reason, but those that grasped the concept first are the ones really being rewarded. Every new opportunity in social media should be learned, mastered, considered if you are going to stay ahead of the curve.

As a blogger, you will learn and embrace many things that fail, like Entrecard for one example, which I use specifically because I was constantly updating about entrecard during its rise and fall of success. News flash: Entrecard failed! The last thing you want to do is miss out on a Twitter, because 90% of new social media ideas fail withing 6 months. Embrace them all, learn from them, benefit, and let them go when they are gone. As a blogger we must be fluid, if we want to make money. Take each chance as a chance to grow.

When it comes to new flash in the pan concepts, I always try to embrace all new things and try them out. I may see the writing on the wall as a company dwindles, or see it taking off, and being one of the first bloggers to be involved can jump start your earnings like nothing else. These tips and tricks are all tools we need to take advantage of one of the most competitive free markets out there. 

Internet blogging!
