Are there things that you are doing with the intention of growing your blog that are actually hurting you?
Are you one of the MANY bloggers who do these things without knowing the negative effects?
Listen to This Episode
Maybe you learned some of these things from the “blogging gurus” out there who claim to be experts that can help your skyrocket your blog with minimal effort.
In this episode, I address the ten common blogging mistakes you want to avoid.
Inside This Episode
I've been blogging professionally since August of 2008. Since that time, I've seen a lot of changes happen in the blogosphere.
Many bloggers have come and gone, and that will continue to happen.
When I look at the bloggers who have come and gone, there are certain common elements that I've noticed that hold them back from being successful.
I wanted to share some of these observations with you so that you don't make the same mistakes they've made.
The good news is this, if you're already making these mistakes, you can stop. What are they? I'm glad you asked:
- Being too worried about the technical details
- Casting a wide net
- Focusing on yourself and not your audience
- Focusing too heavily on SEO tactics
- Imitating but never originating
- Not focusing on your email list
- Treating your blog as a hobby
- Not putting in enough hustle
- Sound too professional and not personal
- Keeping EVERYTHING online
Of course, I get much more into the details in the episode, so you want to make sure and have a listen.
Question: Have you noticed yourself making any of these mistakes? Let me know in the comments below.
