17+ Experts Suggest 3 Blogging Mistakes Bloggers Always Make and How to Fix Them

Blogging is one of those areas that is always “about to die” but never lets go. As my agency profiles in high-scale WordPress projects and WordPress is built on PHP, I’ve spent the past decade listening about the decay of both technologies… And yet, PHP is the most widely used programming language with 79% adoption on the web and 43% of all websites out there are built on WordPress.

So, if you keep hearing that blogging is dead… Then it’s probably on the rise!

I’ve approached some expert bloggers and asked them to list common blogging mistakes that beginner bloggers make.

Here in this post, 17+ expert bloggers have shared top blogging mistakes that bloggers usually make, and they have also suggested how to fix those loopholes.

At the end of this post, I’ve highlighted some key mistakes that I’ve observed the most, but don’t jump over any of them as you may miss the invaluable suggestions from these experts.

What Makes Blogging Important?

Needless to say, I’m a big believer in blogging (hence the article you read right here.)

I started blogging back in 2006 or so, and I’ve seen over a dozen networks rise and fall over time, capturing customer interest and adoption, from the era of newspapers to MySpace to the early days of Facebook; the time when LinkedIn was just a CV hosting platform and videos were non-existent (because Internet speed was just impossible to render videos on the web.)

Are you a blogger who is consistently making mistakes and is now frustrated by the ups and downs of blogging?

Or sometimes you become overwhelmed from seeing the massive success of some bloggers and thinking that blogging is not for you because you’re not reaching that point anywhere.

Well—it’s not just you; even top bloggers felt the same in the early days of their blogging.

Let’s talk about a typical experience in blogging where most newbies fail.

One day, you come across a post while surfing the internet about how John (a blogger) is making $70k+ from blogging.

You got impressed and started your blog after reading some posts about “How to start a WordPress blog within 15 minutes”.

After writing some posts, you have noticed that you’re receiving only 5-8 views a day. You are also stuck on what to write in your next blog posts, and how to monetize your blog.

Hence, you begin losing your motivation, and gradually, you are mulling over quitting blogging.

But trust me there are lots of ups and downs in blogging that had also been encountered by every successful blogger. In fact, the same trend is just as applicable to everyone on TikTok and every YouTube vlogger… during the first 18-24 months.

The successful are the smart ones who keep on learning from their experience and others’.

That’s how you can save lots of time and keep yourself from committing those blogging mistakes that have already been proven as “mistakes”.

Adam Connell

Adam Connell

Bio: Adam is a passionate blogger helping new and intermediate bloggers. His blog “bloggingwizard.com” has become the go-to resource for many bloggers.

1) Focusing So Much on the Details That You Don’t Take Action

I’m a perfectionist at heart, but over the years I’ve come to realize that done is better than perfect.

Because the reality is that perfect, may never be done. As we learn and grow, our idea of perfect changes. And we usually move the goalposts.

So get your blog as close as you can and go for it. You can always improve things later.

2) Waiting Too Long to Start Your Email List

Most people who visit your blog will never return. You need a way to encourage them to come back. Social media can help here but there are far too many distractions there.

Building an email list is great because it’s immediate, it’s personal, and it’s a marketing channel that you have some degree of control over.

3) Choosing the Wrong Niche

This is such an easy mistake. But it’s one that most bloggers discover only after putting a lot of time and effort into it.

The perfect niche for your blog will sit somewhere between:

  1. What you’re passionate about
  2. What you can make money at
  3. What you know

Key Takeaway From Adam:

Jason Acidre

Bio: Jason Acidre is the publisher of Grit and Three best, Also He has an extraordinary knowledge of SEO and link building.

1) Biggest Fear When Starting as a Blogger

There’s a lot that I can think of, especially if you’re doing it for the wrong reasons.

But I guess the biggest one is the “fear of failing“.

Many new bloggers start blogging either to make money from it (which takes a lot of hard work to genuinely accomplish) or build readership and eventually become an influencer in a certain space (which is also very hard to earn).

And assessing both objectives from the get-go can surely be intimidating, and often sway a lot of new bloggers to quit along the process when the task gets tougher.

  • I think the key here is to find the things you know you’d be really happy to write and share about – even without expecting anyone to read your content.

2) Biggest Learning From My Early Days of Blogging

How important it is to focus on topics I know a lot about, and areas that I didn’t see get written a lot by other bloggers in my industry.

It can help you mold and shape your own identity and brand in your space. That’s why it’s so important to read and stalk your potential competitors’ content efforts.

3) How I Improved My Traffic and Ranking

I focused on creating thorough guides that my target audience actually searches for (and making sure that they’ll actually be useful), and spent more time on promoting them through outreach (for link building).

Key Takeaway from Jason

 Ryan Biddulph

Bio: For better Blogging and travel stories you can check out Blogging From Paradise. Follow Ryan on Twitter @RyanBiddulph

1) Blogging Mainly for Money

If you blog mainly for the money you lose creativity, inspiration, and all successful energies because you are addicted to outcomes. Focus instead on following your passion, this is where your success unfolds.

2) Blogging Lone Wolf

If you try to do it all by yourself you will slam into obstacles endlessly. Blogging is a team game. Comment genuinely on blogs, Promote other bloggers and get Succeed.

3) Obsessing Over List Building

Your email list is a group of numbers or inanimate objects.

Focus on serving and befriending human beings. The money is in the value you share, bonds you build, and in the skills, you develop, not in your email list.

Key Takeaway from Ryan

Anil Aggarwal

Bio: Anil is one of the top Indian bloggers. His many articles rank on the first page of Google just because of his awesome skills in keyword research.

Anil has pointed out some blogging mistakes that new bloggers often make. Also, read his invaluable suggestion regarding Search Engine traffic.

We all know traffic is the lifeblood of any profitable website that makes money. But not all traffic sources are equal. Search engine traffic is the king of all traffic sources, so if you want to make more money from your blogs, make sure to attract more organic traffic.

1) Analyse Your Competitors

By carefully analyzing your competitor’s websites, you get a ton of ideas on what type of content to create, what keywords to target and how to promote your website, and so on.

Use tools like SEMrush for doing competitor analysis. Just make sure to provide better stuff and content than your competitors to get some edge over them.

2) Write Detailed Blog Posts

Since 2015, we’re publishing blog posts with over 2000+ words.

That helped us a lot in bringing more search traffic to our site. If you want more search traffic, write detailed content which is most informative to your target audience.

3) Last But Not Least: Be Consistent

If you want to increase your traffic and rankings, you should create a blog posting schedule and stick to it for a few months in order to see better results.

Consistency is the key to building a better blog.

Key Takeaway from Anil

Zac Johnson

Bio: Zac Johnson is one of the oldest online marketers having experience of more than 20 years of online marketing. He is currently helping new bloggers getting success by avoiding blogging mistakes through his blogs blogging.org and zacjohnson.com

1) Biggest Fear When Starting as a Blogger

Not having any readers or traffic coming to your site.

This is something all site owners and bloggers have to worry about when first starting out, however, we all start off with a blank slate and look at where some of the top bloggers are today.

It’s all about taking action and putting your time and effort into something amazing.

2) Biggest Learning From My Early Days of Blogging

I first started blogging back in 2007, and since then it’s completely changed my life and business in the process.

Something I probably would have done differently is focused more on course building and launching membership sites to build a recurring income stream from students.

With more than ten years of blogging behind me, this could have been quite a large source of passive income.

3) How I Improved My Traffic and Ranking

Blogging has made me a better writer, speaker, and marketer, all of which have helped with content creation, SEO, and building my brand, and following in the process.

I’ve been creating sites and focusing on SEO since the mid-90s so this was an area I already had some decent experience with before launching my blog at zacjohnson.com.

Key Takeaway From Zac

Brian Liang

Bio: Brian Liang is the founder of Small Business Ideas Blog and Web Developers Etc, which offers website, hosting, and design services.

The biggest mistake of new bloggers is they think that it is an easy business with quick returns.

Blogging is one of the hardest businesses and it takes time to build up an audience. It’s a long-term commitment and results accelerate over time.

Key Takeaway From Brian

Anna Benett

Bio: As a B2B service Anna consistently ranks on the first page of Google’s organic search with the keywords; “Pinterest Expert”, “Pinterest Marketing Expert” and “Pinterest Consultant” with the help of Pinterest. 

Here Anna has suggested some key points to fix mistakes that new bloggers often make, let’s check it out:

1) Clueless Blogger: Take a course

I was a somewhat clueless blogger in the beginning. I didn’t even know where to look for help – I kid you not. So I figured it out on my own through self-study. When I look back at my work it’s an embarrassing look. I’ve left it there for all to see so you know what NOT to do – LOL.

Knowing what I know now I wish I would have taken a course from an expert which would have saved me countless hours of frustration. Time is money.

Therefore the first tip for newbies I’ll pass on to you is, do NOT try to figure this out on your own. I know for a fact that you’ll be tempted to do it on your own, read every blog out there, and that’s okay. It’s okay to do some research and you’ll get an idea of what others are doing to be successful.

Blogging requires strategy, time, consistency, dedication, education, money and more.

That means learning from others who have done what you want to. Take a course on how to blog. It’s the fastest way to accomplish your goals without banging your head against the wall and wasting time!

2) Learn from Experts

Many Beginners think that they will do it on their own, this is the top mistake beginner bloggers do. Yes, you can do it, but it cost you a lot, in terms of time and money.

If you want to have massive success as a blogger (making at least 6 – 7 digits per year) do whatever it takes to be amazing and strive for greatness. That includes learning from experts.

Why experts? Experts save you time & money because they’ve already made all the mistakes and have created a blueprint for success.

They know what works and what doesn’t work.

Sure you’ll make mistakes along the way, we all do.

But you want to minimize them as much as possible.

3) Leverage the potential of Pinterest

One of the beautiful things about leveraging Pinterest for your blogs is that there are very likely Pinterest users looking for the topics you want to write about.

In addition, your blog will continue to live on and potentially go viral over time because that’s the nature of the platform. That doesn’t happen on other social networks.

  • Why do bloggers do so well on Pinterest and not the other socials?
    Pinterest is not just for businesses who want to sell stuff.

Over 14 million articles are being pinned on Pinterest every day. Publishers like BuzzFeed claim that Pinterest is their 2nd source of social traffic.

Blogging is a lot of work. Bloggers are continuously finding the latest tactics to boost their blog traffic. What if I told you that on Pinterest your blog content continues to work for you long after you’ve pinned? This does not happen on Facebook and Twitter. You see your content has a shelf life.

  • Pinterest helps you win in another big way too! Pinterest can help you get found on the first page of Google!

I wish you boatloads of new traffic.

Key Takeaway from Anna

Dan Ray

Bio: Dan Ray is an outstanding link builder. His skills in link building amuse every internet marketer. His articles and tips are purely based on evidence and real statistics. 

Many new bloggers make mistakes in building links either with less knowledge or opt for black hat SEO. Here Dan is suggesting replacing those wrong ways with these strategies

1) Don’t Write for the Sake of Writing

Everything you produce should be the best version of that thing is available anywhere on the internet.

So make it unique/detailed/controversial/data-driven, whatever you have to make it the best.

Otherwise, what’s the point in creating it?

If you want links to it, it has to be the best.

I see a lot of people trying to preserve “link juice” by not linking out from their pages, if a link makes your article better, either to an external site or an internal page, just link to it.

The internet wouldn’t exist without links, so don’t be shy about linking to deserving pieces of content.

3) Not Having Focused Content

Write about a subject that you are an expert in, grow a community, focus on 1 thing in particular. Once you’ve done this, it’s much easier to expand into something further field.

4) And because I don’t play by the rules Not funneling your visitors into another community, Facebook group/youtube/forum whatever you decide, it’s really useful to have people gather on a platform that they visit for long periods of time throughout the day.

  • Most of you know that I have chosen a Facebook group for this, it allows people to consume my content on their feed throughout their day and communicate with me way more directly, have a laugh, and generally be inappropriate.

Key Takeaway from Dan

Harsh Aggarwal

Bio: Harsh Aggarwal is one of the most famous and successful bloggers from India. He is continuously sharing his blogging knowledge for the last 10 years. He has guided many new bloggers and stopped them from making silly blogging mistakes.

Here is Harsh is talking about blogging mistakes that he made,

1) Fear of Starting

The biggest fear when starting as a blogger is the fear of writing, fear of time devotion, and fear of investment in some cases. I would recommend you read this guide of mine, this will give you a great idea, of how things worked for me.

2) The Problem with Driving Traffic

Driving traffic is not as easy as we think. But there are a lot of ways to drive traffic. I’ve outlined 101 ways of driving traffic to my blog, which I learned from my blogging life.

Key Takeaway From Harsh

Nadalie Bardo

Bio: Nadalie is a famous blogger who talks about Goal settings and Motivation on her blog “itsallyouboo.com”. How to be Goal centric and how to slay Goals are the main topic she often talks upon.

1) Trying to Master All Social Media Platforms

The first year or so of blogging is all about learning from your mistakes. You come to a point where you realize that not everyone has great advice and that you can’t possibly do everything. Learn this lesson fast, focus on doing just one or two things well.

For example, if you’re trying to grow your social media presence, master one platform like Pinterest first before trying to “be everywhere”.

  • There are so many blogging Facebook groups and daily threads but know you do not need to post in every single one, every day. This is actually not a great way to drive traffic to your site.

2) Not Taking SEO Seriously

A second blogging mistake is failing to take SEO seriously from the beginning.

I know there’s a lot of things to work out when you first start but learning how to get organic search traffic early on will serve you in the long run with a consistent, stress-free, flow of traffic.

At the very least, pick a competitive keyword for all of your blog posts and use it in your title, link URL, image file names, and throughout your post.

3) Waiting Too Long to Create Any Product

A personal blogging mistake and probably my #1 regret was waiting to create and launch my first product. I wish I’d done it sooner, that I was confident and focused enough to realize that it would be the best possible move for me.

Figure out what your readers need, create it and sell it to them.

It doesn’t have to be big or complicated either, start by making it printable or an eBook for $39 or less. Get used to making an offer, I know it’s awkward at first but it can help cover the costs of your blog.

Key Takeaway from Nadalie

Janice Wald

Bio: Janice Wald is a famous blogger. She is continuously helping other bloggers to improve their blogs by sharing practical solutions and established strategies. She’s also featured in many top publications on the internet. 

Avoid your fears and get started

when starting as a blogger My biggest fear was no one would read my posts due to the competition on the internet.

Three biggest learnings from my early days of blogging I learned quickly:

1) I Needed a Niche

I started reading about blogging tricks that worked. I read and wrote about Google Analytics. I received so much traffic from that article, I learned that blogging about blogging tips was going to be my niche.

2) Have Patience

The second thing I learned was that blogging is a marathon and not a sprint. I am not normally a patient person. I might have abandoned my blog if I hadn’t heard this. Learning that this expression is true gave me the patience I needed to wait out the times of disappointing blog stats.

3)  How I Improved My Traffic and Ranking

I improved my traffic in the following ways: I learned what works. For example, I learned how to optimize my posts for search engines so I am able to get search engine traffic.

Writing about “unusual tips and tricks” resonates with my readers. When I write about social media sites, I get traffic from those social media sites. This post will tell the methods I take to boost my blog traffic.

In addition to following these methods, you need to promote everywhere. See which websites have users that respond to your content. This list will tell you where you can promote your blog posts for free.

As far as my ranking: I can not stress the importance of your Domain Authority Ranking enough. The higher my DA score gets, the easier I am able to monetize since people write me with financial offers.

  • How did I boost my DA?

I make a concerted effort to have links pointing to my articles.

  • How?

I guest post, I leave my link at sites with high DA rankings that allow me to promote and I create content that people link to. People will link to in-depth content that solves problems.

The life lesson I learned from blogging Has patience! The shotgun effect works. This means you should try various methods. Continue what works for you.

Key Takeaway from Janice

Raelyn Tan

Bio: Raelyn is a successful blogger and digital marketer who helps new bloggers and intermediate bloggers launch successful blogs and online businesses. 

Raelyn shared the number one blogging mistake that she often notices often from new bloggers make.

1) Biggest Mistake – Only Thinking of Starting

“The biggest mistake I made would be not starting earlier.

I love this saying that goes, “The best time to start was yesterday, the next best time to start is today.”

There are always many excuses for people not to start – but trial and error and improving on your business as you go will always beat being paralyzed by fear.”

Key Takeaway from Raelyn


Bio: Janine is a beauty blogger. She talks about luxury makeup and skincare but has a great knowledge of blogging too.

She is also sharing the blogging mistakes of many bloggers that have approached her for guest posting.

1) Publishing Content With Grammatical Errors

If you publish a post with grammatical errors, your credibility will be in the toilet. Carefully edit your posts to ensure grammar is spot on!

2) Don’t Be Vague

A post full of vague content doesn’t provide value to the reader.  Do the research and share what you’ve learned with others.  Use facts to back up your statements.

3) Watch Out for Guest Bloggers

Exchanging posts is a great way to get more exposure but I found most posts from guest bloggers were poorly written.  I either rewrote them or rejected them.  Don’t be afraid to decline to publish a poorly written guest post.

Key Takeaway from Janine

Akshay Hallur

Bio: Akshay is another top Indian Blogger, Have started his blogging journey in 2013. From then he learns a lot of things about blogging and sharing his knowledge from his blog GoBloggingTips.com

Check out what Akshay is saying about His Blogging mistakes and how he fixed them.

1) Blogging on Multi-Niche

The biggest mistake I did early in my blogging career was to go with a multi-niche blog, later I abandoned it and started GoBloggingTips.

Starting a blog in the multi-niche or generic tech field. Niche blogging is the way to go and really important to build trust in the eyes of Google and also build a loyal blog following.

2) Treating Blogging as a Hobby

You don’t know when a hobby turns into a profession. Never settle for mediocre. The mediocre is no longer allowed to fly.

3) Not Having a Long-Term Vision

Have a plan of where your blog will be in the next 5 years down the lane. Planning and the power of anticipation are really important. Rather, than starting hundreds of blogs as some gurus suggest, start with 1-2 blogs and grow them as an authority in your niche.

Key Takeaway from Akshay

Sue Dunlevie

Bio: Sue Dunlevie Helps bloggers identifying the hidden potential of their blogs. Her strategies and suggestions for new bloggers are tremendously good and result-oriented.

The 3 main problems/mistakes that I see newer bloggers making (in their own words) are:

1) I’m Afraid to Publish My First Post

Everyone is scared the first couple of times they post. It’s hard to put yourself out there and every single influential blogger started the same way with that first post.

Just realize that the feeling will disappear over time and, as Nike says, Just Do It!

2) I’m not getting any readers to my blog

So, are you doing anything to get traffic?

On the free side, I recommend guest blogging, sharing on social media, and asking other bloggers you know to share on their social media accounts.

And start to network with influential bloggers – for example, do a roundup, like this post. Or send a complimentary email. Just start networking as you do in regular work life.

3) I’m Not Getting Any Email Subscribers

  • How many opt-in boxes do you have on your blog?

3-7 is a good range.

  • And do you have a freebie Lead Magnet gift for when they subscribe?

No one nowadays wants to just join a newsletter. So make a quick cheat sheet or checklist to give away and add some more opt-in boxes and you’ll have 3x the amount of subscribers you have now.

Key Takeaway From Sue

Pradeep Kumar

Bio: Pradeep Kumar is another successful blogger and founder and editor of Hellboundbloggers.com which is a part of a blog network slashsquare.org

Pradeep has an awesome knowledge of blogging and here he is suggesting some blogging mistakes of bloggers that must avoid.

1) Build Your Team (Relationship)

They should have a team if they want to cover ‘News’ related articles on their blog.

Breaking news or any Foreign news can happen anytime; it’ll be around 2 AM or 7 PM or maybe 12:00 AM, so you should be ready to cover them as soon as possible.

If you start to sleep around 10:00 PM, you’ll probably wake up around 5:00 AM, get ready around 7:00 AM, by that time, it’ll be all over the web, and it might not be “news” anymore.

2) Underrating Mobile Uses

Focus on your mobile theme as much as you focus on your web theme.

Open your website link on all the possible platforms like Android, IOS, etc. Check the same on popular mobile browsers as well.

See if it loads, and your visitors/readers have a comfortable experience.

3) Not Monetizing Perfectly

Select a perfect time to monetize your blog. You should make your visitors into readers/members before you start to monetize your blog.

They should see more content than ads you should focus on that before making plans for monetization.

Key Takeaway from Pradeep

Kulwant Nagi

Bio: Kulwant is one of the successful bloggers from India. He is constantly producing invaluable content, which is proven helpful for many new bloggers. He shares his blogging tips for beginners to launch and grow their blogs.

See here what Kulwant is suggesting to avoid blogging mistakes.

1) Selecting Many Niches

The first blogging mistake I see most of the newbies are making is, selecting many niches under one blog. According to my, if you really want to become an awesome blogger, you must focus on one niche rather than trying 100 different niches under one roof.

2) Avoid Collecting Emails

The second blogging mistake I see most bloggers make is that they don’t start collecting emails on their blogs. They just write the content and make money by AdSense, Affiliate marketing, or whatever.

They are not putting any effort to create any lead magnet which they can give to their use to collect their emails.

3) Hesitate to Invest Money in Blogs

The third mistake (which is very common) I have seen is, that newbies are not willing to invest money in their blogs.

They don’t buy premium plugins, themes, or any best hosting plan and dream to make huge money with blogging. Investment should be the first priority if anyone really wants to become an outstanding blogger.

Key Takeaway from Kulwant

Barakat Minhaj 

Bio: Barakat Minhaj is an online professional and Google Adsense Publisher from Bangladesh/SYLHET. He has proven himself as one of the best bloggers from Bangladesh. He has exceptional knowledge of Google Adsense, SEO, and Internet Marketing.

Here is some blogging mistakes that he himself made and learned from them and now he is helping other bloggers to avoid such blogging mistakes.

1) Creating Plagiarized Content

Most of the newbie bloggers make this mistake at their early stage. They copy the content from other websites or sources and paste it into their website directly.

  You shouldn’t do that. It’s a very bad practice and it can lead to dangerous harm to your website.

2) Not Paying Much Attention to Technical Issues

Website is your empire. You build that and live here. But you do not take care of your empire properly. If you have lots of technical issues on your site then this is not fair at all.

Try to fix all technical errors if you have. Head over to Google Search Console and see if there are any errors like- robots.txt error, sitemap error, URL Canonicalization, Indexing issues, broken link, and other on-site SEO errors.  Try to fix all that and keep your website healthy and fresh.

3) Not Creating A Proper Content Marketing Plan

Try to spend at least 80 percent of your time on content promotion and keep 20 percent for content creation. I do not know why lots of people say this exact 80/20 ratio, but it sounds familiar and makes sense.

If you don’t have that much time for content marketing then try to promote your content to a specific audience at least. And that’s why you need to create a better content marketing plan.

Key Takeaway from Minhaj

Dione San Sui

Dione San Sui is a founder of Hempire SEO that help brands and business to grow more rapidly through online marketing, content creation, SEO and social media efforts.

1) Biggest Fear When Starting as a Blogger

Blogging can always be scary in the beginning.

Once you put something out there, you can’t take it back.

This is something that holds many people back before starting a blog, but like anything else, if you aren’t outside of your comfort zone how are you supposed to get better at something.

This is kind of how you have to look at a blogger.

It’s also important to not look at the most popular blogs and bloggers in the world and think their success and fame happened overnight. Blogging is a long process, and if you want to make money with a blog, you need to treat it like a real business.

2) Biggest Learning From My Early Days of Blogging

The most important thing I can suggest to others from my own experience is to just get started and learn from your own experiences.

This is especially true with blogging, as it can definitely be overanalyzed and if this is something you continually stress on, you may find that you will never actually get started.

Take some time to pick a great domain, set up hosting and WordPress, and then get started with your blog niche. You will figure everything else out along the way.

3) How I Improved My Traffic and Ranking

Analyzing my competitors and going after long-tail keywords has worked really well for us.

Since I am writing content for different brands and niche markets, sometimes it’s impossible to compete with a site or brand that has already been out for five or ten years.

They already have the authority and so many links in place, it’s just not possible. Instead, go for the long tail and target the most specific niche possible.

You will get less traffic, but the quality and focus will be much higher.

4) The Life Lesson I Learned From Blogging

Blogging is here to stay, and so is the demand for content creation.

When you hear the word ‘blogging’, it can mean many different things.

I like to consolidate it as the many different ways to create a site, content, and also its promotion.

Key Takeaway from Dione

Srish Agrawal

 Srish Agrawal run a digital agency A1 Future that fulfills the branding and marketing needs of various brands and organizations with the help of creatives and digital artists.

1) Biggest Fear When Starting as a Blogger

If you aren’t familiar with the process of having a website or starting a blog, this whole process can be quite confusing.

I think this is one of the scariest parts of the process. At the same time, the thought of paying for a domain name and hosting is something that isn’t familiar to most people as well.

I also think that way too many people are looking for free solutions like Blogspot/WordPress and then find themselves simply wasting their time, by not being on a professional domain name and owning all of their content.

The biggest fear in blogging when first starting out is not understanding all of the components in place.

This is why it’s important to get basic knowledge and understanding of how it all works before launching your first blog.

2) Biggest Learnings From My Early Days of Blogging

When I first started my blog, I was super excited about the process.

However, this feeling soon went away after I wrote a few posts to my site and found that no one was reading my content nor was I getting traffic from Google.

This was very upsetting at the time, but after I spent some time studying how SEO works and that it’s all about timing and putting in the work to promote your content, it all started to make more sense.

This eventually led to not only getting a lot more traffic to my site but also improving my expertise and professional career in the process.

3) How I Improved My Traffic and Ranking

As mentioned in the previous point, I didn’t know much about SEO or search rankings when I started my first blog.

I then realized how many websites and blogs are creating new content on a daily basis.

The only way for me to compete against these big players was to focus more on the content promotion aspect and not try to push out as much content as possible.

It’s also important to write longer content articles versus shorter ones. This helps with search rankings, and also your time management and effort.

It’s a lot easier to promote four or five really great posts that can be referred to time and time again, versus trying to promote a handful of new articles every week.

Guest blogging has also helped with this process as well.

4) The Life Lesson I Learned From Blogging

Blogging can truly be life-changing if you are willing to put in the work and stick it out during the first few weeks and months of your site.

Everyone has to start from zero with their site, but those who find success are the ones who put the work in and understand the importance of content promotion.

Key Takeaway from Srish
