What Is the Dumbest Thing that Bloggers Do?

What Is the Dumbest Thing that Bloggers Do?

Sheeple. Blogging sheep, following each other. Or blogging lemmings. Following each other over the cliff, to their violent death. Someone copied and pasted a template email a few moments ago. I appreciate the kindly blogger using my name. But I do not vibe with the rote, word for word nature of the email. Someone said someone enjoyed reading my blog post. Link inserted. Cool. Someone believed a blog post of theirs would make a great addition to the blog post of mine. In laymen’s terms, this is about the most idiotic thing you can do because if 100,000 other bloggers use the same template and same email and same approach, this also means a pro blogger with 10 years of experience like me has seen thousands of these same exact emails over my decade online. Blogging Sheeple; what do you think ...

21 Mistakes Bloggers Make (and How to Avoid Making Them Yourself)

 This post is based on episode 46 of the ProBlogger podcast. When people interview me about blogging, I’m often asked about mistakes I’ve either made myself or seen others making. And the hardest part about answering that question isn’t coming up with them, but rather deciding which ones I should mention. Because believe me, there are a lot of mistakes bloggers make. Today I’m going to talk about 20 or so of those mistakes. But this is by no means the complete list, and I’m sure you can think of plenty more. (If you do, please share them with us in the comments.) 1.  Not starting a blog in the first place A lot of people have trouble getting started because they want their blog to be perfect from the word go – the hosting, the design, the topic, even the first post. Unfortunately, a ...
Why Obsess Over Getting?

Why Obsess Over Getting?

I enjoy getting traffic or profits like the next guy. But obsessing over getting kills your blogging campaign. Being getting focused cuts the legs out from your blogging business because people see through you and your clingy, manipulative ways. Hey; we all deserve to make chedda. I get it. I applaud anyone who monetizes their blog freely. But focusing too heavily on monetizing by adding oodles of getting elements to your blog turns most people off. For example, posting 3, 4 or 5 different forms of interruption marketing to your blog turns off virtually all readers. Why? Doing so usually indicates desperation, save the most extremely clear cases. Any one who posts a pop up form, slider form, bottom ad, top ad and sidebar opt in form almost always fears not getting enough through their blog...

Get Creative

My neck and shoulders kill me today. Hurting. Stiff as can be. So I get creative. I break early and often to do some yoga. Doing yoga every so often throughout my day today improves my posture, stretches out my neck and shoulder area and also increases my relief. I feel good now. Feeling good now allows me to keep blogging even though my neck stiffness tries to prevent me from blogging. Be creative. Do what ya gotta do but use creativity to work your way in, around and through blogging obstacles. I would dictate posts to save my shoulders and neck from typing-induced stress. I love being that creative because I just use my voice to get the blogging job done. But no dice on this one. My wife and I inhabit an extended stay spot for a little bit because we are on the road, traveling again. I ...
