How To Become A Top Blogger in Social Media

I get asked all the time about social media and how I get so popular.  It’s cause I’m badass, that’s why!  Just kidding, I’m really not that amazing at it.  Yes, I have 25K people that follow me on Facebook and 50K people that follow me on Twitter but I’m in no way a top blogger in social media.  Below I will show you 3 tips that I have learned to become a top blogger in social media.

#1. Blog With Passion

One thing I love about John Chow is his the passion behind his posts and sticking to his gun about the weekend fun posts.  He not only posts about making money online but about his family, hobbies, and passions that he has.  Part of becoming a top blogger in social media means your passions show through.

Have you ever been reading a blog and realized that it’s all crap?  Most of the time I have found that it’s because the person behind the post isn’t really into what he or she is talking about.  You can tell pretty easily.  For example, there are many people that work at businesses that are forced to write for the particular business.  Most of the time you can find out pretty quick that they aren’t into their work.  Every now and then you’ll find someone that is very passionate about what they are doing.  It shows in everything they do!

#2 Interactions

You need to be interacting with people that comment on your posts, link to you, mention you, or communicate with you.  I love to talk with people about social media.  One of my most popular places is Twitter.  I love it because it’s fast and something I can do without really thinking too hard.  By communicating and interacting with people you show them that you care.

Some of the best ways to do this are to comment back each and every time that someone interacts on your blog.  Try and help them out by giving them a very valuable comment.  If someone mentions you on Facebook or Twitter, comment back and show them some love.  It’s one of the best ways you can give some of your attention to the people that are making you who you are.  Pay it forward a little bit.  Show people that you really care about them.

#3 Keep Going

If you are into social media and not getting any interaction then you should keep going.  Many bloggers stop pushing things out because the feel no-one is listening.  If you feel like this is you, keep going!  Most bloggers give up before quick and stop right before they were about to make it big.  A personal rule of thumb, is it takes 9+ months of solid blogging, commenting, and social networking to become anything in the blogging world.  If you’re struggling with blogging, just keep going.  Make sure that you are blogging daily, commenting on tons of other blogs and guest posting at least every other day.  I’ve put together a growing list of guest posting sites you can visit by visiting here. Add your blog to the list and get your blog getting posts.  Find good sites to guest post on.

If you don’t remember anything else from this post, remember to keep going!

Ever wondered who are the top bloggers  in social media?  Well since you asked asked; here are your top 3 blogger and how they compare in Social Media.

    And finally… All the secret sauce are related to do what you are passionate about.

    Nice infographics anyway. 🙂

    I’ve had one hit from 5 guest blog posts I’ve written for other sites. There must be more to it than this.

  3. Its not that easy to be a successful blogger in social media as it appear from surface.One need to fight against tough competition and must interact with your follower, fellow bloggers, newbies to make a reputation.

    I love the way you mentioned everything up and I agree with you. But I’ve a question like you mentioned “Blog with Passion”, If someone hires author or freelance writer to write blog posts for him, will he be able to have a respectable position in the Blogging world?

    1. Fahad that’s a good question. I think if you need to hire a writer his/her work will only have to be your first draft. Just to give you an article. You will still have to rewrite it to sound like you and think like you.

  5. Its really inspiring to see how many followers you can gain when you create such a useful resource for bloggers. As mentioned in the post above, its all about providing the best quality for your readers and not creating content just for the search engines.

    I have visited many blogs recently (not mentioning no names ;-), that just post broad content, as if the author is literally writing about anything just to update the blog. Writing that way will just place a barrier between you and your blogs success.

    Passion is key, no matter what you are blogging about. If your not passionate about the specific topic, then pay someone who is passionate to write for you, or scrap the blog and start something that is much closer to your own heart, this will show in your writing and the success will eventually follow.

  6. Thanks for the great post! Everyone including myself like to read something that has personality background. In that way we relate to story and in the end with the writer itself. And interaction is natural after that!

    I guess that’s not the whole truth.
    People like Shoemoney and John made their name years ago by (mis)using sites like Digg.com and others.
    They played the system and knew how to make it to the frontpage again and again. That’s how they established their name/fame as bloggers.
    As a blogger you need to know how to market yourself.

    But it must be said that John (with the help of some great guest bloggers) keeps publishing nice posts every day.
    Don’t know how he manages to do that.
    So yes, passion must play a big role after all. To keep going.

    Thank you for the nice read every day!

    It`s tough to build such such a big followers but it`s not impossible.
    I believe that when a person puts his constant work then he can achieve anything.

    Passion isn’t everything in my opinion. You also need to have a solid plan.

    See twitter and facebook is not enough, you also need to factor in pinterest, youtube, etc.

    I can relate to this post. I have been a part time blogger for the better part of 3 years. I have set up about 10 blogs already, only to quit after just weeks of blogging. I love blogging, but just couldn’t put my finger on it. This is my 11th attempt at it. and I have been consistently doing it for 3 months now, and I will keep going.

    Many thanks to the simply thought you put out here. You don’t know how much it impacted me.

  12. arikaka says:

    it’s just that sometimes we write without passion 😮

  13. Yeah! Picked just one sentence, “remember to keep going” to me that sums it up. ln fact, my blog Twitter followers used to be so scanty, until l made it a task to be active on the platform. Manual follower generation pays better than automatic followers generation, as the later comprises of mainly bots and inactive accounts as followers.

      I absolutely agree! That’s the one phrase I was about to say that really says it all.. I am still working on my consistency. Well, Rome wasn’t built in a day, so it does gives me assurance that somewhere in the near future I will be able to reach the goal.

    I am missing my writing skills and trying to improve it.I have learned a lot from this article.Thank for all

    I think the point of passion is one of the most valuable – all too often, people forget that passion will lead to bigger and greater things when it comes to building an audience. I like the way it is described in Crush It – if you don’t have passion, nobody will respect you. Be a yardstick of quality! Great post 😀
