The Top Habits of Good Bloggers

Share on Pinterest

There is much that sets out a great blogger from a mediocre one, and a good blogger out from a bad one. Of course whether or not you’re a ‘good blogger’ to begin with is a subjective concept and one person’s great writer is another person’s boring read.

However that said, there are certainly some bloggers who appeal to more people and who have a larger audience – and these bloggers tend to have certain factors in common with one another. Here we will look at some of the common traits of a ‘good blogger’ to see if you can’t emulate some of these and see your own blog writing improve as a result.

Carrying a Notepad

A good blogger is a good writer, and a good writer know the importance of ideas. Even the best wording in the world won’t sell your post if you have nothing to discuss in it, so you need to be constantly on the lookout for good topic ideas and great angles to approach them from. To this end carrying a notepad can be a huge advantage because it means you’re constantly ready to take down notes and ideas as needed and because it means you won’t be likely to forget them. At the same time while you’re writing, having a notepad can be a great way to make notes on what you’re writing about and it will help you in a big way to avoid losing your track and to plan your articles.


Of course jotting down ideas while you’re in conversation or when you see inspiration on TV is a great way to make sure you have plenty to talk about on your blog, but few things are really as useful as reading when it comes to coming up with great ideas. At the same time as giving you ideas for topics though, and giving you a larger knowledge base to draw from when making points, reading a lot will also help you to improve your language, your grammar and your phrasing.


As well as reading for the sake of reading, it’s also worth reading to teach yourself new abilities, and seeking out classes and teachers who can help to teach you new skills. There are many different skills and abilities that are highly useful for bloggers, but among the best are being able to program – which of course will let you do more for your site – and basic design skills.


A healthy blogger is one with an active mind and plenty of energy to write on a regular basis. Working out helps to give you more drive and ambition, and at the same time it will help to improve your general health and so your energy and mental clarity. This is a great lifestyle habit to pick up – and improving your diet can only go further to improve your output.


A blogger should also make it a habit to be at the forefront of technology and if you run a website or blog then this is really all the excuse you’re going to need to buy yourself a nice tablet and maybe a newer computer. These are the tools of your trade, and if they work optimally you’ll be more productive and have more fun being so.

      Blogging have one secret, which is “continuous reading”. Because you can know the new tactics only if you are reading other blogs.

    Carrying a tablet is more preferred by me than a notepad. As with my tablet I can write my ideas and create a mind map of my post. Nice post thanks for the share.

    Its really a good habit to carry a notepad because its very difficult to remind the ideas next day. When I don’t carry the notepad, I write it in my cellphone.
    Another points are also very nice as you need to read a lot to get the idea & write on that idea. And yes don’t forget to exercise at least 30 minutes a day.
    Excellent tips. Thanks.
