10 BAD HABITS IN BLOGGING YOU SHOULD DROP TO SUCCEED BY 2017
While writing this article I started wondering whether I will be one of the blogger who will inculcate in myself one of bad habit or to say probably all of the bad habits. I actually became a bit apprehensive of whether to move forward or not . I took a break of a day or two to ponder whether this actually happens with my fellow bloggers and if they face this problem while writing blog, it will be a contribution from my side to the entire fraternity; of course a very small contribution.
As the picture rightly says kick bad habits to win !!!
ALL WORK AND NO PLAY MAKES JACK A DULL BOY
This holds true for a blogger and you have to actually draw a line between passion for writing and the compulsion of writing to meet deadlines.
Sometimes you tend to get so carried away that you actually do not know where to stop and where to restart.This affects the quality of work and also seeps in frustration which has a direct impact on your work.YOU need to balance work and play.
Go in for small gateways and plan some family time it actually works magic.
SCHEDULING YOUR WORKING HOURS BY AVOIDING NIGHT SHIFTS
Working at nights seems to be pretty convenient as it lacks disturbance but should be avoided for a good night sleep.Nothing is more important than your health and as rightly said HEALTH IS WEALTH.Good night sleep is an easy gateway to a healthy body and an agile mind so avoid late nights.Plan your schedules accordingly and go to bed early. You can wake up early if you have some deadlines to meet that is perfectly fine and that will give you a good output.
SOCIAL MEDIA INTERFERENCE
Social media is a medium which helps you to get traffic to your sight but too much interference of the social media takes away your privacy and distracts your attention.Once you are focussed shift then the quality of your work has a direct impact.Work comes first and then everything follows.
Both the messages in the picture go hand in hand what say !!!!!
ALLOCATE YOUR WORK PLACE
You should have a allocated work station or to say you can have your favourite corners wherein you are spending your maximum time blogging. I had read in a health journal that writers who generally spend long hours working on a bed can face serious health issues like back problems and so on. 1-2 hours are alright but beyond that avoid it.This is a healthy way to writing and having good health at same time.
WORK ENVIRONMENT SHOULD BE CONDUCIVE
Whether you have a home office or you go to a proper office you should ensure that it is conducive to work. It should have proper light, circulation of air, windows for cross ventilation and so on. Working environment has a direct impact on your work and hence these things have to be taken care of.
Overconfidence in bloggers lead to irregular posting.This is considered to be one of the worst habits among the bloggers.This leads to the losing of the visitors as they think that you are not a regular blogger. This apart being the worst habits leads to downfall of the success of the blogger and hence it is necessary that the blogger blogs regularly.
This should not be considered as an baggage for the blogger but actually it is a healthy habit.
ADMIT YOUR MISTAKES
A successful blogger is one who has the courage to accept his mistake.Normally if you have posted something and the facts have been found to be misleading then the blogger should have the courage to come forward and then graciously accept his mistake , take the onus of it and then rectify your mistake.
Every person can commit mistake but one who accepts his mistake is the one who has potential to grow and move forward in his life.
NOT FOCUSSED ON SEO
The bloggers apart from writing should focus on the keyword research and see what keywords actually increase the traffic on websites.
Writing long blogs will not increase the traffic but the the proper effect of search engine can come through the keyword research so that SEO gives your website adequate weightage.
The habit of creating backlinks on your blogs through social bookmarking,guest posting, forum posting would help in boosting the image of your site.
NOT USING QUALITY CONTENT
To become a successful blogger you need to focus on the content of the blog. The visitors like those blogs which are informative and which has proper SEO.
This not only helps in getting proper traffic but also helps in the growth of the site through sharing the contents .
The contents length should also be well within limits and lengthy stuff should be avoided.
AVOID BEING SELFISH
If you are in a field in which you recognized for your work and properly rewarded then obviously there would be many people who want to follow your path. As a successful blogger you should be a guiding light and do not shun people who want to go into the blogging. Keep your selfishness aside and take people along towards a challenging and exciting field of blogging.
These habits are to be shunned and need is to move forward with new values and confidence so as to become successful bloggers and march with heads being upright in 2017.
Leave bad habits and inculcate good habits and then there will be no looking back.
BECOME A SUCCESSFUL BLOGGER !!!!
