Being able to take part in an event such as the 2016 Denver Blogging Convention can tell you three things. One, writers don’t always value solitude – they like to have fun too. Two, many successful bloggers went through a rough patch before finding their place on the web. Three, anyone who has a story to talk about is welcome in the blogging community.
Here are more things that new bloggers can learn, thanks to conventions like the one mentioned above.
1. You Can’t Get Anything Done Without Passion
The first aspect you may gain from a blogging conference is that every person there speaks of his or her website with a passion. That’s what’s motivating them every day to come up with new ideas for the blog. In a way, this strong emotion attracts visitors to subscribe and wait for their next posts eagerly.
2. It’s Okay To Change Or Be In Multiple Niches
If you think that sticking to one niche is the only way for your blogging career to flourish, try to take your brain for another spin. The speakers in the convention like have different categories in their site, e.g., lifestyle, health, fashion, et cetera. Although they are not the same, this fact does not diminish their number of followers.
What it means is that changing the direction of or adding to your topic list is acceptable. It happens because you are evolving as a creator; you are seeing what you want and don’t want. There’s nothing wrong with that.
3. Make SEO Your Focal Point
Lastly, it matters for every new blogger to know that any website cannot rank high if you don’t dabble with search engine optimization. It’s unlikely for any conference not to talk about it since the steady flow of viewers depends on it. Learning how to optimize a website may take time, but it will be worth it.
