How I Maintain My Blog As A Student

how to maintain blog as a student in busy schedule
Blogging was once done by very less people. It was because most of those who were interested to blog did not have enough resources and facilities. That's not the case today. Even kids are coming into this field. Most of them think of taking their blog to the next level, but they don't find success. 90% of these kids abandon blogging just because they don't have enough time and they are compelled by parents to get out of blogging. Time management is really important in both online as well as outdoor business.Blogging has really become popular between the kids as a lot of people have amassed a fortune through this field. This has really interested the students to become bloggers. But most of them just get out from this field due to lack of time. They may have a good future in Blogging but they do not have time to equally concentrate on both studies  and blogging and many other off-page activities. I am also a student blogger. I too publish about 2-3 posts a week. So, here i am going to reveal my strategies through which i am maintaining my blog as a student Maintaining my blog doesn't mean just posting new articles. It means optimizing the blog for search engines, sharing your posts on social networks, communicating with others, replying to comments, checking and correcting the theme errors and many other off page activities. So now lets hear my strategies.

Keep It Short - Quality Wins , Not Quantity

As a student blogger, quantity is not something that you should stress on. But, as a formality you should try writing articles with at least 400-500 words. That's only what you want to do. Spend one hour writing a good quality post. again i'm telling you Quality wins . Quantity cannot compete with quality. Quality is 1000 times better than quantity. As a student, you might not have the time to write a 2000 word article or such long articles. Moreover, Short articles are easy to read for the readers. We should not repeat words unnecessarily. Keep the article short. It should be nearly 400-500 words. I am not recommending you to write short articles. If you have enough time, try to reach at least 800-900 words. Thats the best quantity. But, thats not what we want. These articles should have the quality to attract readers. So, Keep It short and dont waste too much time on blogging as studies are a important as blogging. You can do blogging after studies, but you cant do studies after blogging .

Focus More on Uniqueness

Everybody can write spinned articles. Everybody can take any article and use some article spinner and republish it. There are a lot of blogs in this world. To stand out from this crowd , we need some uniqueness. We have really very less time as a student, but again quality wins the race, not quantity. Focusing more on uniqueness will lead to your blog becoming more popular among other bloggers. everybody wants something new. But, sometimes you can get affected y the writers block. Well, +Ryan Biddulph will help you overcoming it. Unique articles will stand out from other articles and it will acquire more traffic. We have to know what we are writing and everybody should be able to understand it. Uniqueness is not something that will come walking to you. Its stand out there, we have to go grab it . 

Titles Play Major Roles

Yeah! What you heard is right, good titles can grab the attention of readers. A simple title cannot get the attention. We should try to stand out in the crowd. I am telling you this again and again because, the blogging world is filled with millions and millions of blogs from every corner of the universe. Titles can get us some instant traffic. But definitely, you should not trick people with unrelated titles. Titles should be related with the content. Good titles shows off the quality of the article. Some people take decisions just by seeing the title, we should also target them while naming the title. W should name a good title in order for more attention .

Still On Blogger , So No Tension

Blogger has many disadvantages and advantages. Wordpress also has this . But if we compare with the features, definitely Wordpress is better. But, the problem is almost everything on Wordpress is available for a rate. While Blogger is almost free for anyone. Even the themes are free in Blogger while Wordpress charges even for plugins and themes. I have no tensions of hosting problems , as Blogger has absolutely no downtime. And it is in the hands of Google, whom each and every one of this world believes. It could have been difficult for a student to maintain a WP Blog as it also has many security problems and you know one thing? Blogger is unhackable. Another thing which rips off my tension.

Simple Theme With WP Look

My blog has a simple theme and most of my friends have said that my blog has a wordpress look even though i have never thought it. Blogger too has a lot of themes and plugins like Wordpress. Hope you guys know how difficult it is to maintain a Wordpress theme. We have to buy themes. The themes have a good rate mostly above 20$ which is a burden for students. For good WP themes, it is very costly. While , Blogger has almost millions of themes that too for free with wordpress look. Simple theme rips off my tension on visitor problems and navigation problems.

Final Words

Yeah ! I think thats all . I think its enough. I have been boring you for such a long time. Hope you liked my tactics . If you liked this please do share the post and comment below if you have anything to add in my list.
