5 Mistakes Bloggers Should Never Make

If you’re a blogger and especially if you’re starting out chances are you may not have even realised you are making these mistakes. Here are five things you should definitely avoid doing.

Not being active– If you are not active on other peoples blog than you can’t expect them to be active on yours. Blogging is definitely a two way street and being active can get you a much larger audience as well as followers. If you’re not active your blog will take longer to grow.

Commenting– As I mentioned be active but don’t spam people with comments that have nothing to do with their comments. A lot of new bloggers end up leaving their link on other peoples posts and it really does not help to do that because it can get a little annoying especially when you do it constantly. Instead leave genuine comments about the post and that will be more likely to lead them back to your blog. If you do want to share your blog you can check if they have a share and promote page which would be the appropriate place to leave your link.

Tags– As I always say tags are super duper important! Make sure you don’t overdo it with the tags though because WordPress will assume you’re spamming and leave your post out of the recommended tags section. I’ve realised that the perfect amount is ten but take a look at what works for you and tag accordingly.

Copying posts/not giving credit to the source– This is a huge no. Don’t ever do this. It is horrible to take credit for another bloggers work. If you are inspired by it and want to share it there is always the option to repost/reblog the original post or if you decide to copy and paste make sure you have the bloggers permission and give them credit for their work.

Spamming followers with posts- It’s great to post regularly but honestly the majority of your followers probably don’t want to see like 20 posts from you everyday. I would suggest don’t post more than once a day and definitely don’t post more than once an hour. You may end up getting traffic/followers for a while because you’re in the algorithm but it will mess up your blog on the long run and decrease activity.

How To Make Your Posts More Interesting

Catchy titles– The title is the first thing your reader is going to read and you don’t want to lose them so make sure you use a catchy title that will make them read further on. Please don’t use annoying puns that are not funny because that’s just annoying…

Images/GIF’s– using images and gif’s on your post are the best way to spice them up and keep the reader interested. Images/gif’s are a great way to keep your article light and increase engagement.

Popular topics- Even though it is totally okay to write about more unique topics it would help to write about popular topics if you are interested in increasing your traffic/followers. They tend to get way more traffic especially if you’re using the right tags.

Don’t try too hard– it’s totally okay to try and do your best but sometimes overthinking your post shows in your post. A lot of people don’t want to read something that overdone or has too many details because a lot of people prefer short, precise and direct posts so try to keep it short and to the point.

Blogger Love | Why Your Posts Aren’t Getting Engagement & How to Boost Engagement

These are great tips and thank you so much for the mention!

The Newbury Girl

As a blogger, there is nothing more disappointing than pouring your heart and soul into a blog post that performs poorly in terms of engagement. Not only can this be a frustrating experience, but it has the potential to dishearten or dissuade you from blogging in the future. As we all know, failure is a liar that tells us to doubt ourselves and our abilities, when in reality most blogging “failure” is (1) arbitrary and (2) not content related. If you’re frustrated with your low blog post engagement, please keep reading.

Five Reasons Why Your Posts Aren’t Engaging

1. Your headline is lacking a hook | Believe it or not, a headline is extremely important to drawing in a reader because it is the first point of contact someone has with your work. Ideally, the perfect headline should be applicable to your audience (this is where having a niche can…

How To Find Blog Post Ideas

Continuing With M.E

How do I find blog post ideas? What can I write about? Would things I want to write actually be an interesting blog post topic? Will having pre planned ideas help my blogging?

These are questions I’ve been wondering and asking myself ever since I started blogging and since I made the decision to come back to my blog. Part of my reason for blogging is because I like having an outlet to place my thoughts but the other part is a desire to create content that other people will enjoy.

So I decided to sit down and actually figure out what I wanted to do with this blog. What I envisioned sharing and what I personally found interesting. Since doing that I came up with a few ideas to help find that next idea I could write about.
