What are the skills needed to be a successful blogger or content writer ?
It may seem silly to say this, but ultimately there are a couple of things that you need in order to be able to be successful at blogging and content writing, which I believe go hand in hand. You have to be able to write. We're not just talking about writing for the sake of writing, but to be able to write cohesively, with purpose, passion and with attention to detail in your writing so that it is is grammatically correct.
Additionally, if you're going to be successful, you're going to be ready to internalize a good dose of patience. You are competing with millions of other bloggers and success in blogging takes time. If you think that you are going to see success in 6 months to even a year think again. Get ready for the long haul, be patient and keep writing.
Success in this arena takes time, focus and a mindset for realizing the fruits of your work down the road and not right away.
