Blogging is an amazing and wonderful way of keeping your readers entertained, informed about a new product, development or on the latest happenings. However, with our busy schedules, it can be a challenge to blog regularly.
Nothing is as bad as a blog that hasn’t been updated in months, you’ll lose readers, visitors and it will be difficult for you to gain the confidence of the remaining readers left, and attract any new readers.
Below are some tips on blogging efficiently;

Many people open blogs for the sake of opening blogs, or cause their friends have blogs and are successful at it, so they decide to open a blog without any clear objective of what they want to achieve from their blogging efforts.
Some examples of blogging purposes includes;
