To be a successful blogger, you need a selection of other skills beyond your creative writing skills. Specifically, you need to understand search engine optimization, SEO internet marketing and social media to stand any chance of getting exposure for your blog. The main skill is SEO because this directly effects your writing. Google and all the other major search engines list websites and blogs in order of the most relevant to the specific search query someone makes.
