If you know what not to write, you should be able to attract a reader better. Here, you will read a few of the tips and ideas on what you should avoid while writing on your blogs. Have a look at these tips in shape of Blogging Blunders given below and embellish your way of writing to turn yourself into a successful blogger.

Never Neglect the Main Content – The Backbone of Your Blog

  • It is suggested that you avoid writing on topics about which you hardly know anything. This will upset the readers and the traffic to your blog will eventually reduce. Always choose a topic that you know very well or well researched.
  • You could avoid changing the theme of your blog once you are half way through the topic. This will leave your readers unpleased. Focus on the topic and do not deviate from it.
  • Never copy anyone’s style of writing. You will need to be original and creative. Write your own views to attract a large mass. Inventiveness is the basic essence of flourishing blogs.

Never Exceed the Word Limit

  • Never exceed 500 words. It becomes boring for a reader to read after this limit.
  • Avoid writing less than 300 words on a blog as it could leave your readers unsatisfied.

Avoid Irregularity

  • Its best that you avoid being irregular. There are merely a small number of bloggers who uphold the daily or weekly posts for their customers. If you want your blogs to be successful and sustain for years, then it is better to be regular.
  • If you are regular and provide a constant interesting reading material for your readers, they will naturally come daily to read your blogs.
  • It is best that you do not forget to update the day and time along with the name of the author. This is one of the most common mistakes that many bloggers make. However the blogging platforms like WordPress will give you these options by default.

Never Ignore Reader Comments

  • Avoid limiting yourself to just what you write. Try to know what your readers feel about your writing.
  • To gain interest of your readers, interact with them and ask them for their suggestions, reviews and about the amendments they would like to see. Always respond to your readers’ comments as well.
  • Avoid spam and maintain the comments that are posted.

Avoid Dark backgrounds and Long Paragraphs

Don’t pick a dark gloomy background, and then write on top of it, as it is too complicated to comprehend. Make small paragraphs and divide your blog into readable paragraphs.

Following these tips will help you increase the traffic to your blog. Apply these tips and see the difference.

    I have to disagree with the “Never exceed 500 words” – sometimes you need more to get the message across properly. With good use of headers or post nav you can write a lot more than 500 words and still hold the reader’s interest.

      I have to agree with you as well Jon. The longest post that I had written is over 2,000 words and it was well appreciated.

      You sometimes have to write lots of words to get your point across as you say and to also make your post well organized with the right words.

    I really agree with your tips, Crystal. I am doing most of the things you mentioned except for one small thing. I am very irregular. I know it’s a sin but I guess I lack motivation. I’m never going to get my blog off the ground by being irregular.

    There are some great tips in here. I didn’t count but there has got to be a lot more than 500 words in this post, and the advice given in the post says don’t write more than that number. I think worrying about the number of words in a blog post is secondary to making sure that your content has redeeming value. I will be back to read more from this blog. Thanks!

    Keeping in touch with your readers, even if it is just by responding to comments they leave, is a good method to build a dependable base with them. And stopping by and seeing what people have to say or question may lead to more content for you to wright, or simply inspire you to try something new.
