Top 10 Blogging Blunders That Leave You Bankrupt
When I started blogging I didn't have a clue what I was doing. I was all over the map. I needed help badly.
A little voice in my head said, "Hey you. Go and read more information and figure out what you are doing wrong." So I did. Here is what I found.
There are 10 big mistakes you can make when blogging and if you do these things your blog will be bankrupt.
#1 - Not having a niche. I was all over the place. I couldn't find my voice. Once I decided on what my niche would be I felt a huge weight lifted from my shoulders. Now writing content for my blog is effortless.
#2 - Blogging about stuff I didn't really care about. The first blog I ever wrote for was not my blog. I was writing about football. Now, don't get me wrong, I love football, but I just couldn't get into reporting about overpayed players.
#3 - Not having my own blog. I just told you that my first blog wasn't mine. Huge mistake. I couldn't find the passion and energy for the blog because it wasn't mine for keeps. Start your own Wordpress.org blog and claim your Internet real estate.
#4 - Not expressing my own voice. When I first start writing I was overly concerned about grammar and spelling. After I would write something I would read it and it didn't sound like me. So I said screw it and started writing the way I talk.
#5 - Not having a capture box. You should start Day 1 with a capture box on your blog. If you don't start with a capture box you are leaving leads out in the cold.
#6 - Not having a contact button. You should have a link on your blog where your readers can contact you and interact with their questions.
#7 - Not replying to comments. Always reply when someone comments. If you do not respond they will think that you don't care and they may not return to blog.
#8 - Not using tags. After you post an article or video to your blog always tag your post with the proper keywords that you want the search engines to seek out. Sometimes I forget to do this even now.
#9 - Not using plug-ins. Plug and play baby. Plug-ins are very simple to use and will enhance your blog beyond your wildest dreams.
#10 - Not using a theme. There are lots of FREE themes in Wordpress land. Look around and find the one that best expresses who you are.
If you avoid doing these things then you will be a mile ahead of where I was when I first started. Make your blog the best on the net!
