Blogging gets easier with practice. The more you blog, the easier it becomes but be prepared to make some common mistakes along the way. Some of the common mistakes people make when blogging are described below.

  • Expect people to read your blog. It takes a lot of time and effort to establish a popular blog. Don’t expect people to read your blog just because you posted it.
  • Lecture readers. The real magic of blogging happens when people comment on what you have written. However, writing in a way that sounds like you are lecturing does not encourage people to comment. When you write, use your own voice and involve readers in your discussions.
  • Ignore headlines. Headlines are what catch people’s attention. If you want people to stop and read your blog, you need to create catchy headlines.
  • Blog without purpose. If you don’t have anything to blog about, don’t blog for the sake of blogging. Save your blog for another day when you do have something you want to share with people.
