Blogging Mistakes You Should Avoid

Blogging Mistakes Bloggers Should Never Make

If you’re a blogger and especially if you’re starting out chances are you may not have even realised you are making these mistakes. Here are five blogging mistakes bloggers should never make because it may destroy their blog:

Not being active

If you are not active on other peoples blog than you can’t expect them to be active on yours. Blogging is definitely a two way street and being active can get you a much larger audience as well as followers. If you’re not active your blog will take longer to grow.

Blogging Mistakes Bloggers Should Never Make


As I mentioned be active but don’t spam people with comments that have nothing to do with their comments. A lot of new bloggers end up leaving their link on other peoples posts and it really does not help to do that because it can get a little annoying especially when you do it constantly. Instead leave genuine comments about the post and that will be more likely to lead them back to your blog. If you do want to share your blog you can check if they have a share and promote page which would be the appropriate place to leave your link.

As I always say tags are super duper important! Make sure you don’t overdo it with the tags though because WordPress will assume you’re spamming and leave your post out of the recommended tags section. I’ve realised that the perfect amount is ten but take a look at what works for you and tag accordingly.

Copying posts/not giving credit to the source

This is a huge no. Don’t ever do this. It is horrible to take credit for another bloggers work. If you are inspired by it and want to share it there is always the option to repost/reblog the original post or if you decide to copy and paste make sure you have the bloggers permission and give them credit for their work.

Spamming followers with posts

It’s great to post regularly but honestly the majority of your followers probably don’t want to see like 20 posts from you everyday. I would suggest don’t post more than once a day and definitely don’t post more than once an hour. You may end up getting traffic/followers for a while because you’re in the algorithm but it will mess up your blog on the long run and decrease activity.

        1. Could you email it to me? I only accept guest posts via email as it’s easier for me to keep track and schedule them accordingly.

  1. I wholeheartedly agree with the spammy comments thing!! Whenever someone leaves a comment on my blog which is basically “hey come and look at my blog” with no actuall comment about my post, I always challenge them! They rarely answer!!

    1. Yeah it’s very frustrating. I think someone leaving me that comment will make me go out of my way to avoid their blog. If they left a genuine comment I would have actually reciprocated.

        1. Yes exactly you can leave an actual comment and are more likely to get a response!
          Yeah it happens a lot on Instagram to me.

            1. Absolutely I sometimes get the weirdest people following me but luckily they unfollow me when I follow back. And don’t even get me started on the messages!

                1. Yeah it’s crazy! I think since they’re behind a screen they think they can say whatever but it’s still weird.

                  1. I frequently ask them questions like “why do you think this is an acceptable way to start a conversation”

                    I don’t usually get coherent replies!

                    1. Lol I usually ignore them but now I’m going to start asking that too just to see how they respond!

  2. Some good tips right here! Though I don’t think I can post more than one blog per day even if I wanted more traffic😅 Anyway, thee tags tip was helpful to me personally so thanks!

  3. Thus was helpful, I am just starting out and trying to figure my way through all the dos and don’t s. Just figured out the tagging thing but good to see someone else saying about its importance. Really love the fact like blogging itself seems like a little community.

    1. Thank you I’m so glad it helped. Blogging really is like a community most of the time I really feel like we’re all one huge family!

    1. Yeah some people prefer 3-4 tags but from what I have read the maximum number of tags WordPress will let you use before identifying it as spam is 10 if you don’t own the domain/pay for your site. If you do pay for your site than you can change the maximum number of tags in your setting to higher than 10 without WordPress identifying it as spam. However, I would recommend doing whatever works for you!

    1. Yeah I see them too especially when people start out blogging because you’re not sure yet what to do and what not to do.

  4. I’m a new blogger and I am probably making many mistakes but you are always so helpful. Thank you. There seems to be no end of people willing to give advice but you have the knack of hitting the nail on the head.

  5. I agree with all of these, and I especially like the last one. When I scroll through reader, I don’t want to only see one blogger over and over again. I’ve quit following one or two people for that very reason even though I often enjoyed their posts.

  6. I’m a first time blogger and this post has given me quite a few insights into the whole process. Also, thank you for being the first person to like any of my posts. 🙂

  7. Excellent advice, Pooja! Since ‘re-starting’ my blogging again, blogging regularly once a week has helped stretch out my blogging longevity while keeping it consistent for readers if they’d like to see more. Good luck with your blogging! 🙂

  8. Such great tips! 💗 I post 5 times a month because I also want to create good content and that takes time. I used to use too many tags which was the reason my blog wasn’t growing. I’m happy that I learned from that and only use 10 now and it works much better.

    1. Thank you and I used to make the same mistake of using too many tags but now that I use ten I’ve seen a huge increase in traffic.

    1. Thank you! I read somewhere that you’re supposed to post 15 comments a day to increase your traffic. I’m not sure how well it works but it seemed to work for them.

  9. Great tips! Spamming is the worst thing some bloggers do. I followed one blogger and then I saw her posting about 20 posts a day. It is so annoying. I stopped reading her posts and just delete the email, then I unfollowed her.

  10. Thank you for sharing your tips. I agree with as a blogger you need to be consistent to have any kind of traffic on your blog and social media platforms. I have found that keeping a notebook with all of your blog posts ideas together with when you Intend to post them is very helpful.

  11. Yes, this a great post. Thanks! I guess I just need to set a scheduled day of when to post. Would be helpful to know how to set up a schedule if you can write about that!

  12. You are so my go to person when I need some help. Thankyou for sharing your tips. It is really daunting when you do your first blog, but you have answered so many questions already.
