6 Blogging Blunders that will scare visitors off your site is a mini guide for new bloggers are are yet to cross the big mile stone of blogging. BloggingFunda is a community of Bloggers to write content about blogging to help new bloggers to stay motivate while blogging.


What are Blogging Blunders?

Initially, no one is perfect in creating content for their blogs.

It takes some time to get perfection and it happens day by day with your reading other blogs to be a consistent content creator.

How much do you know about blogging?

It is hard to explain because blogging concept is now changed with the technological evolution.

And so the taste of the blog readers.

Do you know, why so?

I guess you know if you are a passionate blogger.

I have the answer for those, who are new to blogging and writing content just for fun or hobby sake;

but want to know how to improve their blogging success?

"Blogging is an in-depth ocean full of knowledge and you have to dive deep to learn more day by day with changing concept of blogging."
Mohinder Paul Verma

Also, It’s hard to ignore the buzz around today's blogging.

Online content marketers everywhere are preaching the benefits of providing fresh and interesting content for your blog.

This is because every company wants to attract and woo potential clients and customers for their online or offline products.

So it is obvious that your blog can be a great source for;

  • engaging your readers
  • building your authority
  • growing your business

But the real aspect of blogging is that a blog isn’t going to do anything as mentioned above.

If when people see it they quickly click to escape from your content.

As per my experience, for a blog to be effectively work for you;

  • people need to find it
  • connect with it
  • actually read it

It is my advise to all of you that make sure you are not breaking your strategy by committing these 6 blogging blunders.

Lets discuss some points to understand what it means by Blogging Blunders.


Don't Let Your Subject Be Too Broad

While creating content for your blogging make sure you are creating content around the niche.

If you do not adhere above guideline then it will be looked like you are Speaking to an Audience that is too Broad.

When the purpose gets too broad, it gets confused with the subject you are heading in your blog. 

Always keep these two topics separate and you are well on your way to get the attention of your readers to focus on your content.

The more focused and specific your content, the better your chances that your content will resonate.


Avoid Common Mistakes of Formatting

It is seen on several blogs that there are various formatting mistakes that should not be there for any reason.

Specially, if you are blogging carefully. Don't do that and avoid Abusing Formatting Features.

When formatting is used appropriately, can enhance your blog and grow your readership.

On the other side, formatting, when abused and overused, will send your audience running before they read through the first sentence.

Always keep in mind below points to format your content:-

  • don't use long paragraph
  • don't over use exclamation sign
  • don't capitalize content frequently unless or until needed
  • don't underline content frequently to highlight content
  • don't use multiple colored fonts in your content
  • don't use different font styles in the same content


Forgetting The Main Point or Message

I have noticed on several new blogs that sometimes, bloggers are writing their mismatched content.

It gives a shabby look to your content, brand and your name too. This means that either intentionally or un-intentionally, the author forgot the main points or message of their content.

Don't do this because your reader will lost their interest for revisiting to your blog.

Do you know that your readers like to scan content you provided or they read online?

Your readers take a close look at a page and find the main points relevant to their search. 

So do not make your content that is not easy to find.

What to do to avoid this scene?

For this always write short paragraphs. There should be break up about every 100 words with a line break.

And you can even go shorter with your content.

I have read somewhere but right now I have forget the source that wrote about paragraph length of blogging:

"In blogging, it’s acceptable to write one-sentence paragraphs." 
-: By Anonymous

Where to use Subheadings?

  • You can use subheading for small paragraphs
  • Use text blocks with a subheading
  • Use subheading for important information
  • You must write clear information to guide your reader


Over Promoting Your Business Instead Your Content

This is the most worse part of blogging if done, you will loose everything, your readers, brand name, products and business too.

Always remember that your business blog isn’t just to share news about your business everytime you write new content.

However you can mention in posts to promote your business.

But the majority of your blog should be about solving problems of other bloggers by sharing information and entertaining or educating them.


Blogging like if it is a Research Theses

You are blogging just to help and entertain others and not to make them feel boring while reading your content.

If you are blogging like if it is a research paper and you have to fill the full bundle of sheets with your written content, then you are doing it wrongly.

Instead of doing as stated above, try following steps while blogging if you really attract your readers to revisit your blog and also to share in their cirlce:-

Do's while blogging

  1. Use small paragraphs
  2. Use heading & sub-headings
  3. Use bullet or number list
  4. User Bold, Italic or Underline wherever required to highlight content

Don'ts while blogging

  1. Avoid color stuffing in your content
  2. Avoid different font styles & sizes except heading or sub-headings
  3. Avoid background color for full content
  4. Avoid background image for your content
Now it is time to discuss about the last but not the least blunder of blogging.


Getting Paid Traffic to Increase Visitors

Unless or until you are not blogging for an affiliate or advertising business, it is not good to get paid traffic to increase visitors.

This is my personal view on my own experience of blogging. 

However it is good to get traffic if you are promoting any product of others or yours too.

Google also don't like cheap paid traffic to increase the visitor count if you are using advertisement from Google Adsense.


If you are really serious about blogging then dig and turn each and every stone that comes the way of blogging.

Only this way you can be a successful blogger and business person too. 

I have written this post just after completing my experiments on different types of blogging for the single niche.

And you won't believe I am getting more than expected results from my blogs I am writing on.

If you think, I have covered a truly valuable information a blogger needs, then please share this content as my little try to make other new bloggers feeling easy while blogging.
