For the time, I am going to talk about basic myths & facts that will help you to clear some doubts about blogging.
#1 – Writing By Your Own Wish
You might be thinking what’s wrong in that. But the truth is that writing anything in your blog is fine in initial stages, but once you have moved far away with your blog, you need to be more focused and concentrated on the theme of your blog.
Freedom of shouting is treasure in blogging, but if you wish to receive consistent traffic then you need to stick to your niche, diverting from your niche will lead to distraction in the stream of traffic.
#2 – Blogging = Money Making
Most of people (from which most of them are students like me) asks me, “I also want to make money through blogging, how I can make money?” I always say to them why you don’t ask “I also want to do blogging, how to do blogging?”
Most of the students see other bloggers making loads of money through blogging but they don’t try to find the real story behind this interface of money making.
Final saying is “BLOGGING IS NOT AN ATM MACHINE, IN WHICH YOU DEPOSITED SOME ARTICLES AND WITHDRAW MONEY OUT OF IT”. Blogging demands working whole day and night, even passing sleepless nights too. Think twice before you start blogging.
#3 – Killer Content Means Popular Blog
The above statement is correct but not 100%. If you are writing killer content, but what if you are not spreading it to others, I mean without popularizing your content your blog cannot become king.
Don’t just sit there and expect people to find you on their own, because there are many fishes in the sea. Once people come to know about your awesome writing style they will surely love to come back at your site.
#4 – Blogging Means Writing Only
Blogging doesn’t mean that you are just writing articles, because there are many things about which you can blog about. You might have noticed that there are many other blogs that shout through pictures and videos.
Main motive of blogging is sharing. It doesn’t matter how you are sharing your knowledge and content with people. But the thing which matters is the way of presentation that must be decent and good looking.
#5 – Consistent Content Posting
Every blogger has made his mind that blogging means daily writing an article is the prime rule of blogging, but then again it’s the quality that counts not the quantity.
Writing a large number of articles daily is better that writing a single article which kills all the other articles. But this doesn’t mean breaking the chain of consistent blogging. It’s a good practice to maintain regular interval of content posting.
#6 – Negative Comments = Quit blogging
Blogging is the job of consistent positive work and patience. If you are targeting to reach high phases, then you need to pass through a lots of harsh phases too. If you are blogging, there is possibility of both positive and negative opinions on your content. Its all about how you are treating the negative opinion, don’t take it personally and understand it positively.
While writing, if you have made some mistake, first of all it’s your duty to proofread your article twice, still you didn’t find out any problem, but the reader found some wrong information and point you out via comment, don’t go out of our mind. Say sorry to your reader with polite nature and correct the problem as soon as possible. After all you are a human “You can make mistakes too” but motive is to “Do not repeat the same mistake again”.
