3 Dangerous Blogging Pitfalls You Should Avoid at All Cost

By Wong Chendong

If you want to make blogging your business model, there are things you need to know. Sometimes those things have to do with what you should do, and other times they are things you absolutely have to avoid at all cost or your blog will fail miserably.

Let me tell you what the 3 most commonly known, and at the same time, most dangerous blogging
pitfalls are.

1. Fake it Till You Make it

Believe it or not, but this is a real saying that goes around in the internet marketing industry. It's very easy to hide behind a web page or an email address when you're working on the web, and one of the most grievous mistakes people make when blogging is pretending to be experts in matters they know nothing about. In other words, they're fakes.

It's tempting to fall for that trap, but I am here to tell you you shouldn't do it. Why? Because if you do, sooner or later you'll get busted. Plain and simple.

Someone out there will blow the lid off your little scheme and you'll have a new nick name which starts with an S and rhymes with the word hammer.

2. Post Till Your Fingers Bleed

This is a huge load of crap. Some people say you need to log onto that dashboard of yours and post on your blog each day. Others will tell you, you should do it 2 or 3 times a week.

Let me say this much: It is almost irrelevant how often you post on your blog if the content you put up is actionable, good quality stuff, and you take the time to communicate with your readers somehow.

It doesn't always have to be a blog. It can be a YouTube channel, a Facebook page, a Twitter feed or even EzineArticles. As long as they learn something from you sometimes, they'll be fine.

3. Focus On the Money

This is another thing people say a whole lot. Theoretically it makes sense, I mean, we're marketers and we want a good ROI no matter what it is we're doing, right?

Well, yeah, but if you just focus on cash, your following will realize you don't really care about them and they'll leave you. No one wants to be just an open wallet you call on whenever you need some dough.

People are people and they want to feel important so, while money is important, it should never be the driving force behind what you're doing. People over at McDonald's used to say that if you take care of the customer, the business will take care of itself.

If you take care of the people that come to read your blog, the money will take care of itself. You won't even have to ask for it.

I've shared with you three of the deadliest blogging dangers out there. Avoid them at all cost and never fall for them. Always focus on the relationship you have with your people and you won't have problems getting awesome traffic and a bunch of money from your efforts.
