10 Personality Traits Of Insanely Successful Bloggers

Here’s the thing about successful bloggers, none of them got there by accident, chance, or luck.

There are a few things that epic bloggers have in common; they each possess these personality traits:

1. Adaptive

Never let fear hold you back from trying new things or experimenting. Learning to roll with the punches and adapt new technologies will keep you at the top of your game and ahead of the pack.

2. Disciplined

Nothing worth having is built overnight. Successful bloggers are consistent with their content creation and they persevere until they see the results they wanted.

3. Engaging

Epic bloggers build thriving communities by responding to readers on a regular basis and by turning concepts and ideas into actionable advice. Don’t just tell your readers why they should do something, tell them HOW.

4. Humble

Know that there’s always something to learn and that everyone has something to offer, whether they’re an “a-list” blogger or a newbie. Never stop reading and learning, and always give credit where its due.

5. Honest

Be transparent to your readers by being upfront about your failures and mistakes (and then use those experiences to help your readers solve their problems).

6. Organized

Have a plan and stick to it. Give yourself reasonable, measurable goals so that you can know exactly how far away you are from achieving them.

7. Realistic

Great bloggers know that shortcuts rarely work, and there’s no such thing as an overnight success. Set goals that are actually achievable. Know that just because something works for someone doesn’t mean it will work for you.

8. Funny

Have a sense of humor. It doesn’t matter what your blog is about, if it’s boring, no one will want to read it or share it.

9. Thick-skinned

Be okay with the fact that not everyone will like or understand what you do, and embrace that. Write for the people who love what you do, not for the people who don’t.

10. Analytical

If something’s working well, figure out why so you can duplicate that success. No one ever said you have the reinvent the wheel to be successful. If you can find a better way to use the wheel, that’s more than enough. The key is understanding your successes and learning from your failures.
