In life when people are faced with similar circumstances the majority of them will make similar decisions. So why can’t this law apply to blogging? I have found that new bloggers regardless of technical expertise begin with an almost identical perspective to the blogging world. They all tend to share ideas about what blogging is what their expectations are from blogging. This is why it's possible to make a post like this. We can assume the majority of bloggers make the same mistakes when that start out (I made the same ones when I started) we can guess what mistakes new bloggers will make when they start blogging.
I remember when I was first starting out as a blogger I used to spend many hours just browsing top blogs looking for things I could include in my own. I used to just sit and observe all of the little things these blogs did that most people don’t detect consciously. I use to focus on blog layout, typography and color schemes among many more things. Luckily for me this time spent observing and mirroring these blogs turned out to be quiet valuable and very helpful even up to today.
I remember a few years ago when I was in the process of building my first website, I paid very little attention in picking my domain name. I found one I liked and felt that it wasn’t worth my time to keep looking (as it can be quite tedious). So I chose it and just rolled with it. I then began to spend countless hours on designing the website, making logos, doing market research and getting involved in social media. After the foundation of the site was built I started writing content and overall I was quite satisfied and happy. But very soon all of that comfort and sanctification about my blog began to trickle away after the negative feedback began to pour in and I began to learn more about SEO.
Highly successful people are those who don’t just learn from their own mistakes but the mistakes of others. So, to help all bloggers out there I thought I’d make a list of all the common major blogging mistakes I have found consulting bloggers so that you can learn from them and make them right for yourself. I'm flipping this guide on its head. These aren't 25 tips but 25 things you must NOT do if you want to be a successful blogger in 2017
Unlike a regular blog focused solely on expressing ideas from a personal standpoint. Business blogs are designed with the premise of sharing company news, ideas and anything relevant that pertains to the industry. Blogs allow businesses to boost their online exposure by humanizing their company and building trust. Blogs are a great way to generate traffic online. And many online businesses use their blogs to drum up traffic and then funnel it towards their products and services.
