So, without any more babble, let’s start with list of common blogging mistakes.
1 . Using a Free Blogging Platform is one of the big blogging mistakes
This is one of the very basic common blogging mistakes beginners make. Most of the new blogger assumes that, let me start a free blog with blogger/ Blogspot/ Wix but this is not a wise decision.
When you don’t have a customize domain name or there is a (.blogger) free domain you are using then people feels hesitate to connect you. They feel that you are not serious and they stop taking you seriously. The second thing is free blogging sites are not safe as you don’t have your full control over the existence of your blog.
So, it is best for you to start with a paid domain and web hosting service and monthly cost will not be more than 3 USD per month.
2 . Take Proper Marketing Steps to avoid mistakes
Believe it or not, most of the potential bloggers make this mistake. To make a successful blog, you have to become a Good Marketer along with becoming a Good Content Creator. You have a very useful blog and plenty informative articles that can change the whole world but what’s the point if they don’t know about your blog.
Take proper marketing steps, position your blog to the right audience with the right marketing approach.
3 . Don’t Become an Anonymous Blogger
This is another important Issue to consider. Don’t just anonymously post your contents with an expectation of becoming a viral. It is a rare accident to happen with you. In this era of internet, people love to stay connected with their favorite person.
If they like your content they will love to connect with you and if they like your approach they will go for your content. So, try to connect with your audience.
4 . Choose The Proper Niche For Yourself
This is another major blogging mistakes people make. If you write about the topics you are interested about that will be much easier with you instead of writing over the topic that goes viral but you aren’t interested.
For example, tech bloggers have much audience it doesn’t means you should start a tech blog. If you are a tech head then start a blog on tech. If you like fashion then start a fashion blog.
Choosing the right niche is always important. So do some research on this before you start.
5 . Not Maintaining a Schedule For Making Post is another mistake
When you have a stable audience engagement with them is extremely important. One of the best ways to do that is posting regularly and posting in schedule. If you are someone, who is posting 50 contents on a month and posting no content on the other month then surely you are not doing it right.
What you should do is taking a weekly routine of posting content and stick to it.
