The Art of Blogging is about two months from its second 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
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.
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?
Blogging isn’t what it used to be. It’s not exactly dead, it’s not dying, it’s just… different.
When I started blogging seven years ago, all you had to do was create a blog, share some decent content, be consistent, and you’d attract readers and comments.
And you’d be making some money too. Maybe even afford to become a full-time blogger if you managed to build a community of folks who were passionate about your content.
But now… things are different.
Have you ever felt like the invisible blogger?
You work hard on your posts, pouring every ounce of emotion, creativity, and insight you have into them. You select the best photos and graphics to go with them, submit your blogs to various outlets, share them on social media, do your best to network with fellow bloggers.
But it’s like no one even sees you.
Other bloggers ignore you, your social media pages resemble barren wastelands. None of the few people who do visit your leave you a comment, telling you to keep going, to thank you for doing such a great job.
It’s like you’re invisible… and you wonder if there’s anything you can do about it.
Well, the good news is, yes, of course there’s something you can do about it. And this post is going to do just that: provide you with tips and tactics that will have you reaching new highs in terms of traffic and engagement.
