New To Blogging? Avoid These Things For Now

It is any new blogger’s dream to be on the top in the niche some day. Even today, many people join the blogging world just by reading those ebooks by successful bloggers. These new people often get inspired by the current successful ones, but they forget that they’re yet new to blogging. The successful ones have been through a lot of hardwork, dedication, failures (yes!) and much more.

The article should rather be taken personally because I’m assuming that you, the reader, are yet new to blogging and hence I’m addressing you with all the points mentioned here. Mentioned below are five things you should avoid as a newbie blogger.

Being The Multi-Tasker

Being new in the blogosphere, you might get some exciting engagement on your blog posts. This often happens as the ‘settled’ bloggers often welcome the new ones by leaving comments on the posts, sharing them around and make them feel that they have actually taken a great step.

The unseen problem here is that the new bloggers, being over-excited, often start a new blog in a different niche! That means that instead of excelling with the just-started blog, there’s already one more out there. Give it a break, and focus on what you’ve started rather than starting a new project.

Falling For Stupid Offers

Newbies are often offered offers which tend to ruin their blogging career. Some of such offers are the following.

  • Buying Twitter Followers
  • Buying Facebook Likes
  • Buying Traffic (the worst thing ever)
  • Exchanging Clicks On ads

Such offers look nice from far, but as you go near they are terrifying. It is strongly advised that you never fall for such offers. They might do good to you now, but will surely make you regret later.

Forceful Monetization

Most bloggers start a niche blog in order to make money blogging, which is a good thing as they do deserve it. But the problem is that the monetization part takes the highest priority instead of being the lowest. New blogs are often filled up with ads all around. Sidebars, Headers, In-Content, Footers etc. is hardly empty for the new blogs.

This is not a good practice, as quality speaks not the ads. You should always wait for the money. When it has to come, it will. You need to force it by putting the useless ‘magnets’ to attract the money.

Those were three basic things to avoid as a new blogger. Once you settle in the blogosphere, the following shall be the scenario.

  • Point Number 1 should be fine now – no issues!
  • You wouldn’t need to buy anything – as you’ll be getting it all!
  • Money shall flow towards you – for sure.

The above mentioned bullets shall take place once you become a so called successful blogger. Until then, you are new to blogging and don’t go for the mentioned points.

    Hi Raaj,

    Value is the most important thing here I guess. As a new comer, make value as priority.

    About monetization aspect for newbie. I’ve made related post “how to make money from blog fast”, so it’s possible but I do agree on what you said. As newbie the best way to make money fast is through selling a product than banner ads. By selling things you won’t depend on how much traffic you’ll get, on the other hand the amount of commissions is somehow worth the efforts.

    True Okto. It all goes together actually. For example, once you start getting good engagement on your blog, you’ll start getting more subscribers as well. This will hence make you more sales of your products as well.

    As a newbie, you should build relationship with your fellow bloggers in your niche by commenting their blogs this not helps you to get backlinks but also give you more exposure. Participate in various niche forums, Q&A sites which helps you to attract relevant audience on your blog. Once you build relevant following for your blogs then you can easily monetize them later. It’s important to recognize which tasks are crucial for your new blogs and which are just waste of time.

    I think you missed out on a valuable point: The importance of intro/summary paragraphs. It kind of ties in to points 1 (thinking that people will read the whole post) and 2 (using paragraph format), but it was never mentioned outright.
    The intro paragraph is absolutely critical to piquing readers’ interest in the rest of the post. If I can’t figure out what message you’re trying to deliver in the first 30 seconds, there’s no way I’m going to invest the next few minutes of my time reading through the article when I don’t even know if it’s interesting or will help me or whatever I’m looking to gain.
    The summary paragraph is slightly less important; it’s mostly good for longer posts where you’re expecting lots of scanning.
    Anyway, I really enjoyed your article, and I’m definitely still guilty of a couple of points. Thanks for the tips!
