Since I first started blogging at the age of 16, this is the one blogging mistake I made the most.
I am guilty.
After repeatedly making the same mistake, I see how bad this is for my blog.
If you’re blogger or trying to become one, please avoid making this mistake.
Do you get it?
I will explain a little bit better.
A consistent person continuously behaves in the same way. It’s someone who has routines and uses the same methods to achieve certain results.
Why is consistency a blogging mistake?
Consistency isn’t a blogging mistake.
The lack of it, on the other hand, is a terrible one.
Readers expect you, the blogger, to keep creating content.
They want to come back to your blog and find something new every time.
If you don’t blog consistently, your readers will be disappointed.
Worst, your readers will be disorientated and left, thinking that you quit.
Too dramatic? NO.
Here’s the thing, blogging is like maintaining a romantic relationship, but instead of friends you have readers. Not publishing an article every week, is just like stop taking your friend’s calls. How would you feel if someone you consider a friend stopped taking your calls?
That’s what I thought.
Did you notice that I didn’t publish anything during the last few weeks?
Probably not, why would you?
Anyway, I didn’t, but I should have.
If I want this blog to shine, grow and become popular, then I better put get to work and make sure that at least one new article is published every single week.
More Blogging Tips
I have learned so much since my early days of blogging – and made so many mistakes. I wish I knew then what I know now about writing and blogging.
Here’s some of my blogging tips:
When I first started blogging I spent so many time checking how many clicks I had on my blog. Forget that and focus on writing.
Believe In What You Write
I remember the day I started with affiliate marketing. I wrote loads of poor and short articles just to get those links on my blog. What a waste of time. Going back to those articles and reading them is the worst thing ever. Hard sales and no educational content.
Do Not Quit
Even though I never quit blogging, I deleted countless blogs to start afresh.
The worst mistake ever.
If you take one thing from this blog post, please remember that deleting a blog completely is the ultimate mistake. If you want to change your niche, that’s fine; you may have to start a new blog, but please, I beg you, do not delete your previews ugly blog. One day, you will want to go back to that blog, but all your precious content will be gone.
