4 Biggest Blogging Mistakes

When first starting out, everyone makes blogging mistakes—yes, even the most successful bloggers out there have made plenty of them. That’s great news for you is that you can learn from the mistakes that others have made before you, and hopefully avoid them altogether. 

The better you can get a blog started, the more you’ll benefit from it later. Having to go back and fix your mistakes is much harder than avoiding them in the first place. Whether you’re a real estate agent looking to market yourself, or you’re a foodie who wants to talk about all things cuisine, the same rules apply. Take a look at some of the biggest blogging mistakes to avoid. 

Choosing a Busy Theme

One of the great things about using a blogging platform is that they come with pre-created themes to choose from. If you’re not very tech-savvy, then this is great news. However, choosing an overly busy theme can be a huge disaster. Too many distractions on your page can detract from what you’re there to do— engage readers. Make sure that you choose a theme that is easy to read, easy to navigate, and above all, correctly showcases your content. 

Choosing the Wrong Title

When choosing a title for your blog, it’s important that it’s relevant to what the content is about. A difficult title to remember isn’t going to encourage people to come back and visit to read more. The easier it is to pronounce, remember, and spell, the more favors you’ll be doing yourself. Above all, make sure that you choose a title that isn’t taken already. Otherwise, you could get yourself in trouble as a potential copycat.

Choosing The Wrong Domain

Not all blogs have the same domain name as their title. When choosing a domain, you want to make sure that it’s first of all available and that it’s also easy to remember, just like your title. While it doesn’t have to be the same name as your title, ideally, it should be to make things easier for everyone. 

Posting Irrelevant Content

One of the most important parts of blogging is that you give your readers what they’re there to read. Once you choose a niche to write about, it’s important that you only blog about that. If you stray off subject, it can frustrate your readers and lead them to another blog to get their information. Ideally, you should stay consistent and relevant at all times. 

While you may not be able to avoid making a few mistakes here and there, hopefully, these tips will guide you in the right direction to avoid common mishaps. With a positive attitude and a constant yearning to improve whenever possible, your blog should be a success in no time!
