The second rule you need to follow is conversing with your audience as a successful blogger Mike Butcher rightly said, 

“Blogging is a conversation, not a code”. 

No matter how swiftly you up to your digital marketing and advertising game, if your content doesn’t serve the purpose, it will go all in vain.

Honestly, these pieces are the best avenue for you as you’re adding value to your readers’ lives by providing relevant and useful content and you’re also making them stay on your site for a long time.

You just need to be passionate about writing and showcasing your creative side. Jot down the plot and theme of your stories, make your characters say and do things, and you’ll soon have someone willing to purchase your writing.


Profitable and successful blogging requires hard work. However, it is always a fun and profitable way to convert your hobby into a serious money-making business. You’re surrounded by tons of trending topics but to channelize it properly you need to come up with fantastic ways to connect with your audience.
