The good idea with the creation of blog can result in a complete failure if you allow some mistakes that are typical for beginner bloggers. And not all of them are quite obvious. Therefore, the additional focusing is required. Let us consider it in this post — take a closer look what hinders the successful development of the blog.
Too broad topic
It is worth to explain. Yes, many of us are interested in different areas — health and beauty, movies, building, etc. But the Internet already has a mass of such traditional projects (websites and blogs) on these subjects that are almost impossible to break through them. Especially, if you are just starting out.
Whether it running a blog about horror films (Hitchcock, King or someone else), or visiting the cosmetics project without attempting to cover the entire niche of “beauty.” Web site about the construction of green country houses is easier to roll out than a building portal. You can start small.
It would seem that combining of three single popular topics will make your blog three times more attractive. Sorry, but that does not work. The effect will be opposite because of scattered target audience. Those people who interested in the construction site, will not be interested to see the news from the world of cosmetics. Also, the theme distraction in practice makes it impossible to develop a qualitatively each of them.
You should not forget that the particular people are looking for useful information and different tips on blogs. They want to know that there is the same particular human in front of them but knowing a little bit more on the subject of interest. For this purpose exists the “About Me” section (there are variations of the name). Tell them about your personality, hobbies, life experience, especially about the theme of the blog. Chat with your visitors and readers, try to pay attention to everyone.
A different among the gray mass
It is important to have some distinguishing features. The first thing that should be evident is a logo / design of the blog. The lightheadedness when selected it — is harmful. Do not forget to take care of the uniqueness and “brightness” of the text and multimedia content, of its quality (here, Write! may help you, for example). Fill the blog that information to displays best the identity of the blogger and makes it standing out among the others. Recently, the blogosphere has several striking and individual designs — yes, it is more costly than a free theme, but visitors will appreciate such a move.
Very often, after a soon appearance of your blog, advertising may appear on it. Even worse when it is displayed in a large amount. Affiliate links, banners, and contextual advertising can deter visitors who are not yet convinced of the reliability of the blog (especially the recently created). Also, readers are less likely to subscribe to a blog because of a bad start advertising. You will need at least six months of the need to win over the audience, and then you can and start earning.
Try to advertise maximally gently and carefully.
By preventing or eliminating these missteps, the aspiring blogger is poised to lead the project to success. And then he can start making money from his sharing. In principle, these mistakes are typical, and many of them are announced on the Internet, but somehow the beginner bloggers are making doing them.
