Building blog traffic, especially on a new site, takes time, effort and conviction on the part of the administrator. A popular blog requires not only attracting the traffic but also converting many of those visitors into loyal subscribers as well. There are really no shortcuts to these stages of the development of your site since loyalty can only be earned over time. Even the best blogging sites, the ones with the large and loyal followings, had to 'prove' themselves over time to gain their current popularity. This is where a strong conviction comes into play as being an asset for establishing your blogging platform.

Here are 3 reasons your convictions will serve to 'see you through' the early developmental stages while also making you one of the most popular blogs in your niche.

Catering to Others Disrupts Rhythm

Don't get me wrong your readers are important, very important, but by trying to be 'everything to everybody' will disrupt your focus. Remember these people are here because of what you create and the energy behind it so stick with your interests, convictions and passion since it is already working. Stay on point or theme and answers all questions that require a response but do not change direction, except maybe to make a point, to please a few others! The only way you can expect to develop an identity and a popular blog is by being consistent and delivering good quality content.

The Blog 'Originates' in You

You have reasons for what you blog about and it is these 'energies' upon which you have launched your site and kept it going. In fact you have people 'feeding' off the strength of your convictions! Do not 'sway' your values or opinions now to gain the 'popular' vote amongst your readers. This will only serve to make it hard for others to identify what it is you stand for or represent. Most popular blogs will take a stand on issues and beliefs and although not everybody may agree with you at least, in most cases, you have their respect!

Credibility is Questioned

Once readers 'sense' you have been knocked off point or influenced in any way due to popular opinion, everything you publish is now open to question and criticism. The very foundation of your platform is now compromised and subject to being torn down by any reader, and rightfully so, since it appears you have difficulty in taking and/or making a stand!

Building blog popularity starts with first attracting traffic and than supplying people with something that will compel them to return again. Developing a popular blog like this takes time and certainly perseverance on the part of the site administrator. Even the most popular and established blogging sites had to 'pay their dues' to win the loyal following of their readers! There are no shortcuts to gaining trust, either online or off, so be prepared to have both your patience and convictions tested. By 'staying the course' and maintaining the convictions you started out with, your platform is likely to be one of the more, if not most, popular blogs within your chosen niche!
