Starting a new blog and turning it into a self-sustaining business can be quite an ordeal. It takes more than good writing skills to run a successful blog. This fact often scares beginners off, especially after they make the first few common blogging mistakes and realize there is lots of stuff they will have to think about if they intend to run a successful blog. This realization makes a lot of people give up on blogging and seek their fortune elsewhere.
For example, with all the talk about the importance of SEO lots of beginners forget that readers are the most important when it comes to blogging. If your blog posts prioritize search engines instead of your readers your blog will probably be ignored. After your blog is ignored for some time it is quite likely that you will quit blogging.
Another common blogging mistake is to completely ignore SEO. After all, the most likely place new readers are going to find your blog at is one of the search engines. If the metadata of your blog doesn’t tell those search engines what your blog is about, it will be discovered by the wrong people who aren’t going to stay there for long.
If you already made some of the common blogging mistakes it doesn’t mean that your blog will be ruined or that you are not suited to be a blogger. Mistakes you make are an opportunity for growth and learning. In addition, it is quite unlikely that a mistake you made is unfixable. This infographic will show you the most common blogging mistakes that happen and easy ways to fix or completely avoid those mistakes.
