Blogging For Ads Revenue
If your main intention is to earn money on blogging, i say “you choose a wrong platform”. Blogging is not all about earning money via ads or writing paid reviews. Blogging is a passion, expressing your thoughts which are deep beneath inside your heart and mind. Do not make your visitor feel annoying with several ads, put your ads two – three per page when you got ads like Google Adsense, It looks good. At first when i got into blogosphere, i did the same thing by adding several ads on homepage of my blog.
But now i feel sorry for annoying my visitors.

Checking Your Blog Statistics per Hour
Posted your articles on blog? And keep checking your blog statistics for every hour, That not only increases your blog statistics in few days of blogging, It takes a year to see such a mass traffic on your blog. I did these mistakes when i had a free blogspot blog eg,.(“myblog.blogspot.com“)
Apologizing For No Post
I am sure, i have not posted such things in my blog. But some blogger do these mistakes to show their sincerity, they could think that post nothing will creates bad impression. Its is technically wrong. So never apologize for not posting in your blog.
Not Attending Blog Committee
It is important to acknowledge you as a blogger in blogosphere. You should look for Blogging web community to enroll as a passionate blogger, share your knowledge, get knowledge from other experienced bloggers, then you will come to know whats going on blogosphere, Whats the Current Blogging trend, ask for backlinks and promote your blog. 70% of blog readers will only be bloggers.
Using Existing Logo And Mascot
First thing your blog reader will notice about your blog is logo.If you are not using logo or mascot, try text based logo.But do not copy or use an already existing logo for your blog. To impress blog readers, some blogger do this mistake. First Impression is the best impression. While surfing on internet i found a blog which attracted me is Bloggersmind. Attract your blog reader with first impression.
Not Considering About Backlinks
Building backlinks is most important for a blog to get higher ranking in search engines. Backlinks are your blog links to be placed on other sites to get link back to your website/blog. If you get higher page rank backlinks, it will increase your blog visibility in search engine. I suggest you to get backlink which is related to your blog or niche information.
Not Commenting On Dofollow Blogs
There is a lot of dofollow blogs, which could give you some boost to increase traffic for your blog. Leave your valuable comments and make sure it’s not spam, Do not post comments such as Thanks For Sharing, Great Information. Read their post and ask a question, Bloggers love to answer regarding your comment on their articles.

Failed To Update Your favicon Icon
Newbie bloggers failed to notice their website favicon icon on left side of the address bar. Just a tiny images merely 16×16 pixels. If you failed to update your blog favicon image looks like page is under construction and non branded website. Change your favicon icon and make brand.
Failed To Submit Your Blog In Search Engine
If you failed to submit your blog/post to search engine, then there is no point of yelling at your blog has no visitors. To increase your organic traffic to your blog, Submit your post/blog in search engine to get indexed on google. Are you worried your post or a blog is not indexed in Google search engine?

Give more subscription button for the visitors to share your blog/post in social media sites. Some visitor from facebook, some are from twitter, some are from Digg and some are from stumble upon. So RSS subscription is not only enough for a blog to get a million visitors
Blogging Like Someone Who Admires You
To be honest, I like to blog like my friends who is running Hellboundbloggers, dailytut and more. I was jealous, but now they have taught me a good lesson to be myself and keep blogging on my own way. Be yourself as much as cool. Create your own style naturally.
Racing With Light Speed Bloggers
When you start blogging, first thing runs on your mind is to overtake top bloggers in short span of time. For them i would like to say “Dude, This Is Blogging” you need a lot of patience to become a top blogger.
Stressed While Writing Blog Post
Of course, Every newbie blogger get stressed while writing quality post. And it consumes too much of time and lost what with that subject. For Them, You do not need to post an entire story, or save it on draft and go play with Video games, (i do reading comics) when you get the ideas make a wish to appear words on post.
Awaiting For Super Team Rescue Bloggers
No Bloggers will help you, unless you put an effort to step forward. Bloggers are always busy with their own schedule. Now you can find more helping bloggers when you attend bloggers web community. You can find me too (“facebook/i.g.pradeep/”)

Positing Non-reliable Article
Once you are ready to post your article, make sure its reliable and stable. I wont say “make sure before choosing topic”, Experimenting with that topic gives additional knowledge for Upcoming Blog Post. If your article is unstable, please denote that expiring date. If post is expired you do not need to delete that. Just edit it and reconstruct the post. Most probably Blog authors failed to edit, So writing notice of expiration helps better.
Copying Article From Another Blog
Do Not Copy Post From Another Blog, Analyse the blog post from various blog and write on your own. I did this a lot when i started blogging with free sub domains. Its all wrong, now i’m running a Top Level Domain with original post and happy to share moments with you.
