Most people think that there is nothing difficult in blogging. They are sure that their personal blog will start bringing profit in a very short period of time and they actually don’t have to pay much attention to the blog. Well, we have bad news for these people. Nothing in the internet develops without participation of the experts. Thus, be ready to become an extremely attentive and patient blogger and you will definitely achieve success. Below are a few typical mistakes made by newcomers in the world of blogging. Hopefully, this list will give a general understanding of how to write a blog or what you should avoid when working on the blog.
1. Too many Adsense ads. As soon as one has finished with the creation of the blog, he/she starts installing ad units with the help of Google Adsense. No doubt, this service is good for gaining profit from your blog. And it’s wonderful when someone hopes to become a star in the world of blogging. But, it’s better not to rush. First of all, you should understand that your blog won’t make money immediately after the very first publication. Adding ads units to your blog will only scare away your potential readers and subscribers. Start thinking of advertisements only when your blog provides you with stable traffic and rather big amount of readers.
2. Overconfidence. Of course, self-confidence is a good quality helping many successful people at the beginning of their star career. At the same time overconfidence can lead to serious consequences and even failure. Do not lie to yourself saying that you will become rich overnight. The blog won’t become popular the next day after installing WordPress. Overconfidence causes the state of despondency when you can’t achieve the goal within a short period of time. Avoid writing ten articles each day thinking that this approach can guarantee you success. It’s better to spend time for thinking over the strategy of blog promotion. Try to estimate your abilities in a rational way.
3. Blogging about everything. Many “fresh” bloggers face difficulties when choosing the topic for their future blog. Finally, they decide to create the blog containing articles on diverse topics, without sticking to one big topic. At the start the idea to talk about everything interesting around us seems fascinating. The problem is that not every blogger has a talent to produce unique, witty and useful articles for the blog. And only extremely interesting articles written with outstanding language can attract people to the blog. Thus, if you are not sure in your writing skills, think twice before creating this type of blog. Besides, the blogs containing information on different topics face difficulties with searching for constant readers. In most cases, people will visit your blog with the help of search engines. They will read the information on a specific topic, but they will hardly come back to your blog again.
4. Mistakes in setting the goal. Before creating the blog ask yourself: Do I really need this? It happens that the first steps seem easy and so inspiring. The blogger writes numerous articles within a month or two and maybe even gets regular readers. But soon inspiration disappears and dissatisfaction together with tiredness come instead. The blog without fresh, interesting material gradually dies. Thus, all your efforts and regular writings go in vain. In order to avoid this situation, choose the topic which is the main passion in your life. The topic should inspire you to constant learning, reading and communication with experts. Be interested in what you do! If the goal of your blog is set in the right way, success will come soon.
