Blogging is a platform which allows you to expose your own creativities, talents, posts, pictures and contents. It can be said as a gift for today’s generation to showcase their talent without the help of any other person. Thus, this field can really be treated as a treasure to express our hidden talents to this world.
So, is it necessary that a blogger must be conscious while blogging? Whether it may be a blogger who blogs for hobby or a serious professional blogger, anyone should be cautious in certain steps while writing contents for his blog.
When you start to blog without any mistake, your online visitors will be automatically increased and this will, in turn, increase your blog subscribers. However, for any blogger, attracting visitors is the biggest thing to be achieved in the Blogging field. Isn’t it?
Thus, let’s check the common blogging mistakes that must be avoided by any blogger.
- Mistake 1: Not making the content simple:
Many of the bloggers think that writing contents in a higher version of a language is a sign of intelligence and sophistication. But the actual truth is simple contents written strongly will bring more traffic to your blog. Provide contents to your readers in simple language which is easy to understand. Use catchy titles, interesting themes and simple words to make the whole content into a successful one.
In simple terms: A businessman must be aware of latest technologies to be successful in his field.
In complex terms: A businessman must keep his fingers on the pulse to be successful in his field.
Among both terms, the first one is so simple and can be understood by anyone. The content in the blog must be simple like this so that even a common man can understand.
- Mistake 2: Never up-to-date:
This is the most common blogging mistakes that even a professional blogger does. A blog is successful only when its content keeps on refreshing. In other words, the contents posted on a blog must be up-to-date and dynamic. The posts must be in a reverse chronological order in which the latest post must be displayed first according to the date.
Up to date: List of Samsung phones running Android 6.0 Marshmallow
Not Up-to-date: List of Samsung phones running Android 5.1.1 Lollipop
- Mistake 3: Not being precise
The best blogger can be called as a “best writer” only when he is able to communicate the content in limited words. This means that he must be able to express the theme of the content as short as possible with every possible emotion.
Also, if you can write content in 600 words, take the time to cut short that to write in 500 words. There lies the real success of a blogger.
Precise version: LG, a South Korean company is very successful in producing smartphones.
Lengthy version: LG is a South Korean Electronic company which is very successful in producing mobiles such as today’s latest generation smartphones.
- Mistake 4: Never sticking to SEO:
Search Engine Optimization is the very first thing that a blogger should keep in mind. A blogger must write any content according to the rules and regulations of SEO. This means that the blogger must use more catchy titles, catchy and most searched keywords in their contents. Example for that are:
SEO supportive title: Most affordable cars between the price range of Rs.3 lakhs to 5 lakhs
Non-supportive title: Less expensive cars of this year (it is not so catchy and thus do not get more traffic for this title)
- Mistake 5: Choosing irrelevant topics:
This is also one of those very common blogging mistakes that a blogger does. He/she chooses an irrelevant topic that is not related to your blog. This is very important to be noted since posting irrelevant topics to your blog will not only make you lose new online visitors but also drives away your old subscribers/readers.
If your blog is a beauty blog, then posting irrelevant topics such as current politics, science fiction stories will make you lose your original visitors. So, be aware.
Thus, above are the 5 common blogging mistakes that a blogger must avoid while blogging. If these points are followed, any blogger can be successful right from the first day.
