Like Usain Bolt at his peak as the world’s fastest man, blogging has always been big!
And successful blogging in 2022 is set to be even bigger.
But first, it’s been a challenging few years.
Just like at this time last year, the best we can expect and yearn for in 2022 is an end to the COVID-19 pandemic that has ravaged the world in the past few years.
And here’s the reality…
As a collective, if there’s any lesson we can take from the last few years, it is this:
When it comes to the pandemic, we cannot really count on anything!
Instead of betting on a return to how things were pre-pandemic, we should be seeking to create a new normal. One where we are aware of the health risks while finding safe, and effective ways to work, play and do things.
And the truly amazing thing for us as bloggers, is that we are able to blog, while not necessarily placing ourselves in danger. Because all we need to blog is a laptop and wifi!
If blogging in 2022 is going to be massive, hwo do you position yourself to be center-stage?
Here are 22 ideas that will bring you success and joy as a blogger in the new year.
Sprint like Usain Bolt – The 14 Key Practices, Ideas and Innovations that will bring You Success as a Blogger in 2022
To sprint like Usain Bolt and hit it big as a blogger in 2022, you need to embrace these 14 successful blogging tips and ideas…
#1. Set your Blogging Goals
It was Brian Tracy who was famously said, “Success is goals, and all else is commentary”. Another famous expert, Tony Robbins put this way, “Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.”
How amazing is that?
What do you see as a blogger? Where do you see yourself at the end of the year?
Let me suggest that you set your blogging goals using the following ideas:
- How far do you want to go as a blogger?
- What do you want to become?
- What do you want to do with your blog?
Whatever goals you have, start by writing them down. Lifehack says that according to a USA Today report on New Year’s resolutions, people who write down their resolutions are more likely to keep them than people who simply think or talk about them — even if the only difference between these two groups of people is the act of writing their goals down beforehand.
#2. Start Blogging (If you haven’t started already)
If you’ve been putting off starting your blog, I’ve got fantastic news for you!
There’s no better time to start blogging than now. The need for blogging is at an all time high. There are billions of readers going unto the Internet everyday looking for something that tickles their fancy.
It could be you…
And there are literally one million and one blogging resources available online at the click of a mouse.

#3. Fall In Love With Blogging (All Over Again)
Have you been blogging for a while, but lost your blogging mojo?
Or perhaps, you’re an established blogger who’s missed their way in blogging-sphere?
I know the last few years have been very challenging with all the various lockdowns and restrictions around the world. I can understand if you’ve decided to put your blog on the back burner.
You’re allowed to take a break. But please don’t give up. You’ve come too far to give up on blogging.
So, I want to invite you to come back home to blogging. There’s enough room for all of us in blogging-sphere.
#4. Blog Like Your Life Depends On It
Seek to blog every day.
Blog like your life depends on it.
Set out a plan to churn out, on a regular basis, content that is amazing, relevant and most importantly, content that is insanely useful.
Like Usain Bolt was in his heyday, be consistent!
Seek to amaze your readers with the quality of the material you post on your blog. Don’t be average.
Avoid every form of mediocrity.
Be awesome. Always!
#5. Work on Your Greatest SEO Asset
Let me shock you.
The greatest SEO asset you will ever have isn’t technical: keyword placement, backlinks, page speed, word count etc. No!
Instead the most prized SEO asset in your SEO toolkit is a writing style that’s engaging.
Here’s the reality…
If you can get people to click on your headlines and get them hooked, so that they read your content all the way to the end, Google will love your articles. And your posts will rank very well on Google and the other search engines.
It really is that simple!
So seek to improve your craft as a blogger.
At his peak, Usain Bolt was an amazing athlete. You can be an amazing writer.
No matter where your writing is at, you can become a better writer. That’s because no matter how amazing you are, there’s always room for improvement.
And you can improve your blogging in 2022.
As I said in an earlier blog post, when it comes to writing to improve your writing, I simply cannot think of a better recommendation than Brian Clark’s 10 Steps to Becoming a Better Writer.
Here’s what Brian said:
Write even more.
Write even more than that.
Write when you don’t want to.
Write when you do.
Write when you have something to say.
Write when you don’t.
Write every day.
Be the absolute best version of yourself.
#6. Learn SEO to Improve Your Blogging in 2022
Here’s why you need to master SEO, whatever it takes!
Almost 100 billion searches are made on Google for services, content and products every single month.
100 billion searches. Let that sink in.
And the top 3 positions on page #1 of Google receive 75.1% of all clicks.
To get a slice of the clicks, you need to understand SEO.

#7. Understand Keyword Research
To be on top of your blogging in 2022, you need to know everything there is to know about Keyword research.
Quik advice for you if you want to make it as a blogger this year. Never write an article or blog post on a keyword that you cannot rank for!
Every article, blog post and page should have a keyword to focus on. This is the keyword you want to rank for, so that when people search for that word or phrase on Google or any other search engine, they find your content.
The focus keyword should serve as a focal point of your content.
To succeed as a blogger in 2022, you need to learn how to find focus keywords for your blog posts, articles and pages.

- An email address is easily the best way to verify your identity when you open any online account; and

#11. Join a Mastermind
A mastermind group or personal advisory group is made up of like-minded professionals who meet regularly to brainstorm ideas, provide peer support to each other and create accountability.
Masterminds are typically made up of about 5 to 10 people. However, they can be as small as 3 or as gig as 100. Masterminds usually meet regularly (can be weekly, monthly or even quarterly).
Mastermind groups are typically goal-oriented and success-driven.
To take your blogging to another level in 2022, join a Mastermind.
No ifs or buts about it!

#12. Master Recurring Affiliate Marketing
It’s got to be the dream, right?
To earn enough passive income that you can quit your day job, escape the 9 to 5 trap and live the life of your dreams.
Well, it need not be fantasy because the best recurring affiliate programs make that a reality.
When it comes to affiliate marketing, here’s the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth:
- There’s a lot of money to be made online. In fact, in the coming years, affiliate marketing is projected to exceed $8.2 billion in the US alone.
- The top affiliate marketers earn tens (and sometimes hundreds) of thousands of dollars every month from high paying, recurring affiliate programs and from recurring commission affiliate programs. And you can do the same.
- Your goal should be to give insane value to your audience or tribe, while maximizing your passive income online. You can achieve this goal by focusing on those lifetime affiliate programs from well-known and well established brands with amazing products and services. The fact that they also have some of the best recurring affiliate programs, becomes a bonus!

Affiliate marketing is amazing, but you’ve got what it takes to create a product or service to sell.
The most successful bloggers have products and services they sell.
Here are some examples of products and services you can create and sell:
- Online video courses
- Membership sites
- Home study courses
- Coaching programs
- Email courses
#14. Start a Virtual Summit

Virtual summits include courses, conferences, events and much more!
If you’re interested in hosting your very own virtual summit, then look no further than HeySummit.
HeySummit is the leading virtual summit platform.
HeySummit empowers individuals, businesses, and organizations worldwide to share their content, ideas, and experiences with a global audience.

However, what differentiates HeySummit is that it is a wrap-around event management platform. Sure, these sites can host your sessions, but how would your attendees find your event in the first place? How will they purchase tickets? Who will send out event promo materials and agendas?

This is such a great post! As a 6 month old blogger, I have moments where I feel like an expert and moments where I still feel like the newest of newbies. All of the things and advice being shared can be so overwhelming. I love that you encourage them to make a plan, and I would add stick to that plan. It is easy to get distracted and veer away, but stay focused on the most important things you have set for yourself.
