14 Qualities That Bloggers Should Have


To be able to be a blogger you have to have certain qualities otherwise I am not sure that you will be very successful as a blogger. These qualities you probably already have if you are even thinking about blogging for a legitimate reason, if not you might not be right for the job.

Here is a list of all the qualities or skills a blogger needs or could be used as an individual:

Confidence -

You need this to be able to take risks and to do things that make be out of your comfort zone, but trust me, if you do something that you might not normally have done or something that requires confidence, it will for sure benefit you and make you feel better.

Creativity -

You need this to be able to think of new ideas for making posts, designing your graphics, designing your website, taking photographs, giving presents, standing out... I could go on. The list is endless, but the main point is that being creative is a way to express yourself through different forms, which I think is really important and not just for a business or blogging.

Determination -

This is really important for when you are faced with difficult situations or end up feeling like there is no point trying to continue, this should make you think that you could be successful and make something of whatever you are doing and keeps you thinking positively.

Honesty -

Tell the truth and don't hide small things; if you are ashamed of something, does it really matter or why do you think that, because ultimately it doesn't matter what other people think, because they might not even be in your lives by next year or even in a months time, so is their opinion really that important.

Being unique -

Just be you; it's one of the most important things that I have learnt whilst blogging, because no one else can be you and make your personality shine. You can bring you out in every aspect of your blog, business or life to make people see who you really are.

Time keeping -

This is very important for meeting deadlines and for making sure you put out posts regularly and that they are all ready for when they are needed. If you keep your time well you will realize you have a lot more time to do things than you thought you had.


Inspiring -


Being inspiring is something that I one day hope I can call myself, because someone being inspiring, is probably the reason you do whatever you do now and I know it is the reason that I love blogging, design, music, etc. I think being inspiring is really important, because it means you have left your mark on someone else's mind and meant that they believe they can achieve whatever they want to.

Vision

For being able to see your path laid out in front of you and so you can see where you want to go and what you want to do in the future.

Inquisitiveness

To find out more, keep learning and never give up on trying to find something out.

Initiative

Doing things independently and being able to think of new ways to do something.

Independent learning

Doing things yourself and without help, and learning more without having to be asked or encouraged: simply because you want to know.

Resourcefulness -

Being able to make the best of the resources you have and finding new resources to use and using these to their full potential.

Enterprise -

This is a combination of a lot of skills that are all crucial to running a business or blog to its potential and are all really important. Enterprise is a skill on its own though because it is the ability to use a combination of these skills.

Curiosity -

Wanting to find out more and continuously asking the question "why".

Being inspiring is something that I one day hope I can call myself, because someone being inspiring, is probably the reason you do whatever you do now and I know it is the reason that I love blogging, design, music, etc. I think being inspiring is really important, because it means you have left your mark on someone else's mind and meant that they believe they can achieve whatever they want to.
