Post date: September 26, 2017
As soon as you make up your mind to get your new blog up and run it, there is a risk that you will get caught up being excited about launching a blog and will make a lot of mistakes during this process.
According to my personal experience, it is so easy to destroy what you have done concerning blog, sometimes even miss useful opportunities and don’t take advantage of them.
Thus, to assist you in starting your blog effectively, we have prepared a list of several biggest mistakes bloggers make:
Setting a publishing schedule that is impossible to realize
During your first days of blogging, you have lots of creative and interesting ideas. Since it’s new as well as fresh, it’s not hard to resort to publishing like a madman and getting all of your ideas out.
Initially, you are going to suppose that posting every day won’t be difficult at all, but you will undoubtedly slow down. As a result, it will get only harder and harder.
By the way, some bloggers think that setting a blogging schedule is not of great need and therefore, they become very lazy and stop updating for a long time.
Forgetting about the usage of headers and whitespace
Blogs that look like huge, frightening walls of text make their readers bounce in a hot minute.
In spite of the fact that your idea might be amazing, presentation is also half the battle. One of the best recommendations is breaking up paragraphs by including headers between them, so that your audience gets certain anchor points. It is suggested that your paragraph has from 3 to 5 sentences.
Not using pictures or images
Since 2008, it has been discovered that people read only 20% of your text content. This figure shouldn’t depress you because very often one photo is more valuable than 1000 words.
Studies has shown that not more than 10% of readers simply bounce without even paying attention to what you have written. What is more, the biggest part of your audience reads just 50% of your post.
Not giving answers to all of your comments
When your reader makes an attempt to comment, the worst mistake would be ignoring this visitor.
Someone tried to talk to you but got not even noticed. As a matter of fact, your audience will never increase, if you behave like that.
Not taking into consideration analytics
Have you ever thought which posts your audience enjoyed best? Are you aware of the ways people are searching your information?
Considering that analytics data is irrelevant may be compared to the process when you throw darts in the dark. You can install Google Analytics and get to know various insights about your blog.
