Now-a-days, the most common activity on the internet is Blogging. Every day new blogs and new bloggers are coming up. It is simply great for the blogosphere. Being a blogger, we must feel proud about it.
Some of the bloggers make some common mistakes in their initial stage or even in some later stage. Today I am going to discuss 5 blogging mistakes which must be avoided.
Lack of quality content
People love to visit your blog because they love the quality of your content. A blog without good and interesting content is good for nothing.
So, bloggers must concentrate on the content, rather than giving emphasis on other factors like SEO, building backlinks, etc. Yes, SEO and backlinks are important. However it can be useful only when the blog has quality.
Expecting returns without hard work
Some bloggers want quick success. They want traffic, money, backlinks, exposure and what not. They want all these from day 1 of their blogging career. It is simply impossible.
If you look at the successful bloggers, you will find that they have worked really hard in their initial stages to get success. However they did not stop at any moment. They continued to work hard in order to hold their success and achieve even more.
Thus you can easily understand the importance of hard work. Do not expect success without any hard work. If you work hard, success will definitely come; maybe it can take some time.
Blogging for money
Many bloggers start blogging just for making money. Money is definitely a part of blogging, but it is just a part. If your aim is just to make money, then my advice would be to leave it.
Jane’s note: You can blog in order to make money; in other words blogging can make a stable business that has a stable stream of income! Just has to be done correctly (shh… watch out for my report on this topic quite soon!).
You should concentrate on the content, quality, design, etc of your blog. Try to become the best in your field.
If you can get traffic, money will automatically come in.
Jane’s note: I completely disagree with this statement. Traffic doesn’t always translate to money!
Advertisers approve those blogs which have great content and good amount of traffic.
What is the difference between a blog and a website? In a website, readers cannot engage with you; however this is possible in a blog. The comments section is the most important part of any blog.
After reading your article, a person can use the comments section to appreciate or give some feedback. It is the duty of the blogger to interact with them. They should reply to them; even if not for all the comments, some sort of interaction is a must.
Not only on the blog, but also outside the blog, in social media or other places where their readers hang out.
Each and every blogger has a Facebook Page for their blog. However most of them just use it for promoting their new articles. This is a big mistake.
People will term you as a spammer if you just promote and never engage. So do not always promote; sometimes interact with them.
Some bloggers want traffic, name and fame from the starting phase of their blogging career. If they do not get it, they become impatient. Some of them even leave blogging.
It is simple impossible to get traffic and exposure very quickly. You cannot get success overnight. You have to be patient.
Just concentrate on quality of content. Also implement some SEO and promote your posts on social media.
