In 2016, the purpose of blogging has changed a little bit.Previously, it was just a passion and a hobby to time pass.But now blogging is not just a hobby.Majority people nowadays adopt blogging for making money online.Today it is senseless to just blog and don't think about earning money.Your work has a price.If you don't want to earn it ,then it is just a time waste .
Many bloggers are making thousands of dollars through blogging and few other means.How are they doing it? Have you ever thought of it ?. Actually, there is no rocket science behind it just a few mistakes to avoid and you are well set.
Mistake No 1 : Wrong Choice of NicheThis is a common mistake that newbies usually make Choosing a wrong Niche can be a waste of time.If one does not have any interest in some niche ,then one should avoid blogging about it.By interest, I mean having the knowledge to express it in your words.For example, if a travel blogger starts to write about SEO and that kind of stuff for the sake of traffic and money,then his efforts may not be that successful.Instead, he should write on what he is good at.
Mistake No 2 : Becoming a Copy Guy
This mistake is also common among starters which don't know what blogging is all about.They think that posting copied content can get them quick success without wasting any time and mental effort.So,this is a big mistake which is realized by many,afterward.Producing original content is the heart and soul of blogging.
Mistake No 3 : Lacking skills of posting
In the current era success is not guaranteed by mere production of content.You need to produce it in an effective way.Many newbies start making this mistake and don't get the desired response from visitors.By an effective way, I meant to include some quotations,having short and precise paragraphs.
Mistake No 4 : Keeping a distance from social mediaAfter posting your content on your blog,You have to spread the voice.The question is how will you reach people when you don't know anyone in the beginning ?.The answer is quite simple.You can use social media sites like facebook,twitter etc and create a community for your blog.Many newbies don't pay heed to this and get frustrated because they believe that the only way to get traffic is from search engines.
Mistake No 5 : No SEO optimization
If there is no SEO Optimization,then Creating a blog and posting content will not get you any traffic.Search engine optimization is essential if one wants to rank in search engines.This mistake is often done by Blogspot bloggers Since WordPress is comparatively better SEO optimized,so WordPress bloggers don't have to worry about it.SEO includes both off page and on page SEO.One of the most important off page SEO techniques is link building.You must take care of both type of SEOs for better ranking in search results.

Mistake No 6 : Not having a user-friendly design
Some Bloggers (new ones) don't look for good designs for their blog especially Blogspot bloggers who get a simple or classic template which is not satisfactory.If you are a newbie then you should look for free and premium designs for your blog.I prefer premium ones because they don't have any encrypted codes and link back conditions.
Mistake No 7 : Not Replying Comments
Some bloggers (new) don't reply to comments as they should.Having a friendly chat with your commenters can make them your permanent visitors and that is what everyone wants but ending the chat with " thanks " will not be that fruitful.
Mistake No 8 : Having no Branding :
Having no branding can hit you hard.You must have your own logo and profile pictures for social media sites.Branding can increase the trust of your visitors on you and can also stop copy practice.
Mistake No 9 : Not Thinking out of the box
Doing everything like everyone else may not be that productive.You should develop your own style.Because people like change.How would you like if you eat the same dish every day?Yeah,you will get bored.So try to think out of the box while posting and tweaking with your blog design.
Mistake No 10 : Having Money Craze
Everyone wants money by hook or by crook.But if you are crazy about earning money and start making the above mistakes ,then it will do no good for you.So start with patience and build a community for your blog.After you have built some community for your blog then start thinking about earning money you will get the fruit of your hard work.
