Most of the bloggers make big plans in the first phase of blogging like and they want to compete a really big blog like Mashable, Techcrunch, Makeuseof but they don’t even realize the hard work involved behind these blogs. They really don’t understand the team work , planning and execution involved behind the blogs.


Bloggers love to dream about success and popularity, they dream day and night to become a popular blogger. But in reality they pass the day in dreaming about blog and they never do any work in real to improve their blog. Another problem which I faced when I see other bloggers making good money, I start following their path, and leave my goals aside.  That ways bloggers loose their own identity and try to copy some one else style. Always remember every blog and blogger has his own uniqueness and individuality.

Checking Stats

This is the most common problem among newbie bloggers. They regularly check the stats of their blog. Stats like adsense earning, traffic stats ,  Alexa rank. They forget that the time which they invest on checking stats can invested on any creative work on the blog. Ex. Commenting, writing post, article reading etc.

Blogspot Blog

Starting days of blogging brings lots of mistakes, one of the common mistake is starting blogging with Blogspotblog. This is not actually a mistake, they don’t aware with importance of WordPress and its amazing plugin features. But they can migrate from Blogspot to WordPress by certain methods.

Niche Blog

Niche is very important for blogging. There are certain process on Choosing the Right Blog Niche. Niche blogs are blogs which exclusively focus on a specific subsection of a general and usually popular topic. In starting of blog they confuse in what to write and what not to write. They choose to write on various areas like Movie, music, personal stuff, Love and relation, technology, gadgets etc. on their blog. Though writing about stuff you want to write is a good idea, but you losing a chance to create an authority blog.


SEO is most underestimated topic among new bloggers. They really don’t take care of meta tags, headlines,permalink, title tags and images.  They don’t know about All in One SEO plugin, robots meta plugin and how to use it.

These are the common mistakes done by bloggers in the starting days. These mistakes should be avoided for long life and effectiveness of blog. Do you know about any more mistakes you had faced in starting day of blogging life. Feel free to mention those mistakes in a comment section.

  6. I believe the most common mistake made by any new bie blogger is niche blogging.. Few days back I was talking to one of blogger from Pune (Ruchi), she blogged out lots of posts on different topics, later on she realize that she wants to blog about Blogging niche but was worried about the old posts… So for people in such cases.. Forget what happened.. and start writing series of post on your new niche…. Make sure you pick a niche as early as possible..
