Are you an ask-able blogger ? To answer this question, first we must know the definition of an an askable person. Basically Askable person is ” one that can be asked” or “one that is able to be asked” (My definition). By able I mean, one who is educated enough to answer the question. The main objective of this post is to define an askable blogger. Are you guys, ready ? Before I start, I thank Justin for allowing me to write at his site. Ok, let’s start :-
Your readers, visitors etc decide whether you are an askable blogger or not. Several element (3 for a number) make a blogger an askable blogger.To be considered as an askable blogger, you need to be 1) Helpful 2) Positive Blogger 3) Determination/Passion/Patience. Today, we will talk about these three elements:-
Be an Helpful Blogger
A helpful blogger is the one who is willing to help (of course). Do you help your visitors ? There are many new blogger who don’t know how to blog. They need help. And we need to help them (before they ask for help). So exactly, can you help a newbie blogger ? By writing useful article (for your newbie audience). There are many bloggers out there who write tutorials for bloggers who are in need. (Think about the time you were new to blogging, you didn’t know anything, right ?). The best way to help a newbie blogger is by suggesting and promoting his site (commenting, re tweeting). As an active blogger, you can suggest (to newbie blogger) changes to his site. An helpful blogger is also a person who doesn’t expect any rewards for his help. (But the newbie blogger may reward you by promoting your site). You can also write tutorials for your visitors. These are just some ways to help your visitor. As a blogger, you need to be helpful. (helpfulness does play an important role in deciding your successfulness as a blogger). Ask yourself, Are you an helpful blogger ?
Be a Positive Blogger
A positive blogger is a type of blogger who has a positive attitude towards blogging (he/she sees things in a positive perspective). Positive bloggers are the ones who reply positively, even if the comment is against his point of view (positive bloggers are experts are creating a discussion/debate). Do you comment positively ? Before you can describe yourself as a “positive blogger”, you need to ask yourself a question : Do you have a positive environment in your blog i.e. Are you able to create a positive environment ? As humans, we tend to look at things in our own view (perspective), we forget to look through others’ eyes. (This is the biggest failure of mankind). If you are able to look at things in different perspective, then you will be able to accomplish great things. (You will be an excellent thinker).
Be a Determined, Dedicated, Patient Blogger
Are you a determined blogger ? Are you hardworking ? Do you care about your reader ? Determined bloggers are ones who don’t give up. They try until they achieve their goal. Justin for example is a determined blogger. Through his hard work, dedication and patience, he was able to influence a lot of people. With determination, comes patience (you won’t get instant results) and dedication/passion (are you interested in blogging?). Passion and patience will also help you to become an askable blogger. As Vince Lombardi once said – “The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand”. The most important thing about blogging is that you participate – gain experience by blogging (its not whether you win or lose).
These three elements all together define whether you are an askable blogger or not (It also defines -partly- whether you are successful, in terms of blogging. Anyway, Thanks for tuning in at Dragonblogger.com. I hope to see you next time. Don’t forget to let me now of your opinion.
