Blog Expert Series: The Mindset Of A Successful Blogger

blogger-mindsetI’ve completed a couple of Blog Expert series now and the feedback on each has been very encouraging.

The first one: Link Building Campaign

The second one: Building and creating a blog for the long term

So…we’re going to start another one.

In the next Blog Expert series, we’re going to move on to an important but often neglected element of running a successful small business – Mindset.

Now…I want to be straight to the point here:

I’m not talking about passion, determination, drive, persistence, energy – topics like that have been written about too many times.

We’re going to explore a few of the critical traits which make business owners succeed while their competitors fail. Traits that are often overlooked!

I’m calling it the Six ‘C’s of blogging success and the first one will be about…

Ah…you’ll have to wait!

But if you fancy having a guess on the subjects we shall be covering…share them in the comments below.

    One of then obviously is to be consistence..without that you will not make it.

      Consistence is NOT one of them. I agree it is important but is talked about too much like passion.

      You may say the ones I discuss are also heavily talked about…but I think a lot less!

    Hi Andrew,

    Looking forward to it.

    Many of the blogging mindset posts have been rehashed so it’s fun to see a fresh new perspective….one including the 6 “C”‘s.

    Have a powerful day!

    Hi Andrew

    I was going to say consistency too! Could it be being concise….ie getting to the point without all the fluff??!!

    Now you have me really curious and of course I will be back for more of your excellent posts.

    Hi Andrew,
    I would go for content or community :). Anyway I am sure that anything you will choose will be great and although I choose those two, I am pretty sure this are not overlooked by anyone so there is a pretty high chance I might be wrong.
    Good luck!

    • Andrew December 2, 2010 at 3:11 pm #


      Everyone talks about content so no…I’m not covering that in this series.

      Perhaps a series on its own?

      Community – good one I like that – perhaps there will be 7 and not 6!!


      • Cindy December 6, 2010 at 5:35 am #

        I also thought about content at the fist time, but it wasn’t 🙁
        Maybe those are consult, comment (like this :D)

    Hi Andrew,
    If the first trait must start with a C, then I would say creativity. This is the trait that makes you stand apart from everyone else. Your blog is different and you can think outside the box to attract readers.

    • Andrew December 5, 2010 at 12:25 pm #


      All 6 start with the letter ‘C’ – not just the first one.

      And you are right…creativity is important.


  8. Nawaz December 2, 2010 at 1:06 pm #

    You have provided us a links of very comprehensive knowledge. I always try to read your every topic that is not paid.

  9. SmartAboutThings December 2, 2010 at 2:25 pm #

    I guess Creativity should be one of them?

    • Andrew December 5, 2010 at 12:24 pm #

      Might be 🙂


  10. Vivek Parmar December 2, 2010 at 9:43 pm #

    Consistency, Passion, Regular posting frequency and concise towards your topic

    • Andrew December 5, 2010 at 12:34 pm #


      You mention some excellent traits but all these ones in this new blog series will start with ‘C’.

      A lot has been talked about consistency so I won’t be covering that one!


  11. Dennis Edell December 2, 2010 at 5:15 pm #

    Oh you’re gonna be followed with watchful eyes on this one my friend; lookin’ forward to it! 😉

    • Andrew December 5, 2010 at 12:26 pm #

      I know I can count on you for some great, honest feedback.


      • Dennis Edell December 5, 2010 at 3:53 pm #

        Whether you want it or not. LOL

  12. Biodun December 2, 2010 at 7:03 pm #

    I will guess Conversation among the six, looking forward for them lol..

    • Andrew December 5, 2010 at 12:27 pm #



      Yes…sort of!

    There are a lot things to become a successful blogger and you need to put in lot of efforts to do so. Link Building campaigns also play a lot of role and it helps in off-page SEO which in turn helps to bring your site in top Google Rankings. I am sure a lot of people will surely like the post.

    • Andrew December 5, 2010 at 12:35 pm #


      I think you need to re-read this one…all the traits I shall be covering start with ‘C’.


  14. Lertno December 4, 2010 at 8:31 am #

    Creative and Conversational sound like winners others have posted. How about caring, cunning, connection.

    Maybe I got at least one.

    • Andrew December 5, 2010 at 12:36 pm #


      Nice list!

      I like Caring and I;m sure Cunning would be a good one if used in the right context!


  15. Andrew December 5, 2010 at 12:27 pm #


    All the traits start with the letter ‘c’.


  16. Rob McCance December 6, 2010 at 2:51 am #

    The first mindset point shall be GOALS and or OBJECTIVES.

    • Andrew December 6, 2010 at 9:35 am #

      Hi Rob,

      I agree GOALS and OBJECTIVES are very important aspects of having a successful business / blog.

      However all the traits I am covering in this series start with the letter ‘C’.

    I came across your blog from the comluv site and am excited to learn more ways to monetize my blog. You have tons of useful information and I will become a regular!

    • Andrew December 8, 2010 at 9:02 am #

      Thanks, Chris.

      I have already seen you have commented on several posts – so thank YOU.

    i guess communication is part of it. Every successful blogger needs to communicate and it’s not one way communication but two ways.
