Making the Best Muslim Blog

Salam,

Muslim blog

Now I want to just quickly say my suggestions and insights aren’t just for Muslims, they can be helpful God willing to Non Muslim bloggers also. Most of my readers are Muslim, so I figured I write my title geared towards that specific crowd. Thank You, want some halal meat? Okay let me start.

With the spark of 50 million Islamic blogs, all Mash’Allah trying to give daw’ah and I guess brand themselves. I wanted to talk a little about blogging and how to make a good blog and discuss my views on certain blogs which I have come across.

I have to say their are few blogs which I really like due to the fact they consistently bring out quality content as well as developed a decent fan base.

Running a blog is no joke, ask any blogger who is serious about his or her blog. They will tell you how much time they put into it, it’s practically a job that pays off with halal bucks :). IF you manage to make it that far. If you don’t get the money, at least you tried to help people change for the better. Most Muslim bloggers i have seen so far use WordPress or Blogger…we all know WordPress is the best =). Right, Right?

One thing which helps me write more is support from emails which I get from different people around the country and the world. It motivates me alot and what I learned from experience is you can do anything you set your mind to. If you feel you have some talent or skills then i think you should use it for halal purposes and you will see a successful outcome insh’Allah.

One of my hobbies is analyzing different types of blogs, I like seeing blogs develop as well as fulfill their purpose.

As a business major, hoping insh’Allah. to be an honest businessman one day, I love thinking of new ideas to write about or just in general of ideas that can go far.

A philosophy in business tells us that “an idea is no good unless it is put into practice”. So if you think of something, put it into practice!

Now my site is definitely a blog, but I think i just want to keep coming out with articles to help the youth. As you might know the purpose of my site is help those who are in trouble by sin’s, in addition helping humans develop the Chill Yo Islam Yo mentality. Which essentially develops a  a God consciousness to say no to smoking drugs, drinking alcohol, staying away from fornication, etc.

Now running a site just for Muslims isn’t that easy, because you have begun to market just to a particular audience but on the other hand if one has the ability to write a certain way, connect with individuals on a certain level, bring up issues and story’s that are appealing then perhaps you can develop into that site you wish to become.

Nowadays if want to make money you can use Google Adsense which everyone loves. I use it also as you may have seen, my tip to all of you is make sure you filter out the haram advertisements, i wrote an article on that Here. In addition to adsense their are many other options such as Widgetbucks, Text Link Ad’s, Chitika. Where you place your ad’s is another challenge, what color should you make your ad’s, does it go with your theme? Just some stuff you should think about before jumping ahead of yourself. Trust me, I keep learning from my mistakes.

Some blogs which I visit often are Mujahideen Ryder (now ibnpercy.com), Azeem Khan (no longer active), Hahmed (no longer active), Maniac Muslim, Muslim Matters. Some of them have stopped blogging, however others have re-branded and continued to grow due to persistent effort, dedicated, and most importantly having a passion for blogging. Without that burning passion, you can’t really go too far.

Developing a successful blog means you consistently or at certain intervals through the year create compelling content or articles which differentiate you from other sites. Their are many aspects which In’sh Allah I will discuss later on but some things to keep in mind is quality, consistency, and trust in Allah.

One thing which I have seen over time is People who start blogging but die out quick, No! you must put in time and work to be successful. Overall what I am basically trying to say is I believe we all can improve the image of Islam if we write educated posts with the intention of bringing about positive changes insh’Allah.. Everyone is starting to listen to us, people are reading, the internet is amazing, let’s use it for our advantage.

Alright so that wraps it up, insh’Allah. I will write more about this later on, this was just literally scratching the surface, I want to continue to help people write and make their blogs better as well as mine.

    Ditto on the amount of time it takes to make a blog successful. I've just started by own blog at http://uberhim.wordpress.com/ where I simply provide links to interesting articles & embed videos… but it takes time to provide truly worthwhile content every day.

    Blogging IS a full-time job. For me at least.

  5. h ahmed February 12, 2008 at 1:38 pm #

    Walaikum asalaam wr wb

    Great post. Great points! I couldnt agree more!

    It is very hard to post regularly. I really dont have the time to blog the way I used to- so what i do is pre-write posts whenever i have time here or there and set them to be officially posted at a later date. This way new posts are spread out over time, keeping my blog fresh!

    Also along these lines, but more general, id like to link you to a post I wrote back in July on "The State of the Blogosphere" (http://www.hahmed.com/blog/2007/07/23/the-state-of-the-blogosphere/). Inshallah it should also be of benefit!

    And thanks for shouting out my blog! Jazakallah khair!

  6. Naela February 12, 2008 at 6:33 pm #

    Brotherr Saad! I remember when this blog was just born. MashAllah it has come along way! and as a lot of other br. and sisters have pointed out you NAIL it to the point. Thanx for a lot of good insights and inshAllah we all can learn from eachother!! spread the knowledge and i know you observe think consume a lot! and inshAllah i hope and pray Allah(Swt) rewards you and the rest of the Muslim Ummah trying to become better Muslims especially in today's day and age! May every little good intention count and may the Shaytaan stay OUT! lol

    chill yo islam yo!

  7. Saad February 12, 2008 at 7:21 pm #

    Jazakullah sister Naela and Brother H ahmed for your support, I appreciate it, We ask Allah to help us all stay on the deen and help the ummah in whatever way we can! Ameen!

  8. Sis zabrina February 12, 2008 at 11:57 pm #

    Bismillaah

    As Salaamu 'alaykum and peace to all,

    Brother Saad, i agree with you. Blogging takes a lot of effort. Being a business student myself, i cannot help but be concern about providing the right content for the my readers, differentiating myself thru branding etc.

    I dedicate my own blog for both Muslims and non-Muslims who are looking for motivational stories. Stories that would inspire them to increase their love to their Deen, to help them understand Islam better, inshaAllaah.

    My aim in all my motivational stories is simply to show that Islam is easy, simple, relevant and complete, inshaAllaah.

    So, yes, i do agree with you that blogging is a serious money whether if we are able to monetize it or otherwise. But the best part is that, no matter what, the best 'monetization' is the reward Allaah promised us in the hereafter, inshaAllaah.

    Salaam

    Sis Zabrina

    islamic people should not kill their members if they study the bible…they should give their people with rights and freedom to express their faith… islamic religion is suppress of freedom of expressions.. especially if you go to saudi arabia… women are not allowed to wear colored dress only black.. but i wonder american womens are not forced to wear black dress…they walk anywhere in saudi arabia with civilian clothes…heheheh this is unfair to british women, canadian, french.. is there favoritism of islamic law or islamic law is subject to american government.

    I started a blog up to give dawah to the people close to me on a micro level. But I am trying to keep things general so other can benefit too. After leaving facebook I needed an outlet. I find blogging quite fun. Only been at it a week LOL but I have a long term plan insha’allah. I have seen blogs literally consume people so I am gonna play the long game and keep the posts slow and steady.

    jazakallah khairan for the links to the other blogs

      Do you know if they add MSG to the food? Usually vegetarian places in Taiwan are super heavy on the MSG. A lot of supposedly great tasting food is actually enhanced with MSG, and actually it gets pretty bland and annoying after awhile, besides the health issues.

      that, I think which platforms you choose and how you utilize should them totally depends on your goals and your audience; social media is essentially free advertising and marketing, but it has to be done well to be effective. I always tell clients to choose two or three platforms and do them well, instead of just staying afloat on five or six. Dashboards like HootSuite are making social media marketing simpler by giving us the ability to schedule out our posts. Disclaimer: I do this for a living so I could talk about it forever!
