The Art of Blogging is only five days from its first anniversary, and this made me aware of the fact that not everyone’s been with us from the very beginning.
So, if you’re new to our blog, let me share a few of our best articles to help you get the most out of the Art of Blogging.
If you’re an old timer – you still might want to go through this, in case you missed some of our best content.
What is The Art of Blogging?
This is a blog dedicated to teaching aspiring bloggers how to improve their blogs.
Our articles cover a wide range of topics, from the basics of blogging, content creation, networking, and even monetizing your blog.
The Art of Blogging was started by me (Cristian Mihai) as an attempt to help others, but also to better understand the blogging process and all of its many intricacies.

The Hall of Fame
Over the last 12 months we’ve added some 265 posts, articles, tutorials and tips.
Almost everything that I know about blogging can be found here, and I’d like to share with you the articles we’re most proud of.
Let’s call them the Essentials of The Art of Blogging:
Do you want to be a successful blogger? Do ideas for posts randomly pop into your head whenever, wherever? Do you think about ways to improve your blog?
How to write more? Better? Faster?
Do you study what the most successful bloggers have done to get to where they are right now?
You are not alone. I do this too. It’s one of my passions. To see what makes the difference. What works, what doesn’t, and to understand the why. Because of this, I can write cute posts like this one.
Here are the seven best habits to have as a blogger.
I do not research the subject, I do not take classes, I do not read about photography, I do not actively aim to become better.
Yet, somehow, I am becoming better with each photograph I take.
And I wondered why.
Here’s an odd fact about me: I am an artist. I have been writing for fourteen years now. I love art. I love artists. And beautiful art has made me cry far more often than real life ever did.
This belief of mine works for me in all artistic fields. I don’t feel much pressure, just the desire to have fun, to enjoy myself, to take part in the ritual of creation.
I see beauty and I want to capture it, recreate it, change it, share it with the world.
It’s not the knowledge, you see, but rather the skill. And I believe that it’s not what we acquire, but who we become that influences our results.
It’s all about mindset.
“It is your attitude, more than your aptitude, that will determine your altitude.” – Zig Ziglar
Yeah, knowing the techniques and being a great storyteller matters, but it all comes down to self-confidence.
It’s easy to get discouraged when reading about the millions and millions of other folks who also blog.
The good news?
Most of them kind of suck, because they never bother to do a bit of research, to learn from their mistakes, so they keep doing them over and over again.
What about you? Are you guilty of committing these seven deadly sins of blogging?
