By learning few important skills, you will be able to make your blog more engaging for your readers. Besides, those skills will greatly affect your blogging income. Here are 5 skills that you need to have as a blogger:

1. Writing skill

This is the most important skill that you must master as a blogger. If you want to be a blogger, you will need to become a good writer first. That’s because the whole activity of blogging involves writing content for your readers. So, you have to learn about how to write engaging content for your blog.

2. Marketing skill

If you have a good marketing skill, your blogging business will go smoothly because the more successfully you market your blog, the more people will come to your blog. And this is important since traffic is the backbone of your blog, which will lead your blog to either success or failure.

3. Persuasion skill

As a blogger, you need to have the skill to persuade your readers. This is important as this will lead you to success. If you can persuade your readers into taking action that will bring a win-win situation to you and your readers, you will succeed. Persuasion skill is very important because it will help you to inspire your readers and create a good relationship with them. Without this skill, your blog will be boring and none of your readers will enjoy your blog.

4. Some technical skill

It is better for you to learn about blog maintenance as well, such as how to tweak your blog theme, add certain ad code in your blog, and so on. Although you don’t need to comprehensively learn about all technical skills such as web programming, it is important for you to learn some technical skill that will save you time and money later. You don’t want to hire a web designer just to tweak some elements of your blog template, right?

5. Typing skill

It is also important for you as a blogger to improve your typing skill. If your typing speed is slow, you will not be able to update your blog frequently. That’s why it is improtant for you to learn how to improve your typing speed. It makes sense, right?

      We all have to start somewhere. Blogging is fun, just don’t let it consume so much time you get sick of it.

    I would say I have 3 out of five. That doesn’t mean I am not working on the 2 I am not so good at. Thanks for the reminder to keep working at it.

    These skills are a must to have for any blogger. Writing alone is not enough, one needs to market it in a better way to reach a wide range of readers. When one is thinking of starting a blog, having knowledge about its maintenance and other basic stuff is really essential.
