It is very difficult being pointed wrong by any other blogger. Yea!! why not? You are also a good blogger. But, you will be better than now if you are actually doing the below discussed mistakes.

It is one of the most common mistakes I always find, even I was a part of those people included doing this blogging mistakes. It happens with every blogger at the beginning of their career. I always made small mistakes which I was not aware of.

But as soon as I corrected my mistakes, I found my blog in a better place. I always read lots of article in Web. But I followed only 30%. Only getting the knowledge is not enough, you must use it too. I always recommend you to follow Pro-Blogger. It will always give you a touch of better ideas, tips & tricks.

5 common blogging mistakes every blogger make:

I am will discuss with you the common blogging mistakes below. Followed by my mistakes in my blogging journey.


1. Hosting & Domain:

It’s completely new to you, it is always,a big question for newbie blogger in choosing the best hosting. Many new hosting companies are coming up each year in the market. It is very important to consult about your requirements with blog consultant on this topic.

Don’t buy a hosting from any new company you never know what happens tomorrow. I always suggest people to go with BlueHost, Hostgator.com, and DreamHost with money back guarantee offer.

This three hosting company provides best support and very user-friendly, supportive company.


It is very important to choose top-level domain that is “dot-com”. Don’t go for any other option, if you want to create a blog for getting World Wide Web Traffic. Choosing a Domain name is a big deal, you must choose best brand name for your blog.

Your Domain name must include a word in Domain related to your niche. You must think Domain name as a company name, use your best ideas to grab cool Domain name.

2. Template & Design:

Every blog owner’s choice differs from each other. I can’t let you to use particular template or style as you may not like what I like. But I see many newbie are fond of using lots of widgets “Actually useless” with bad color choice.

Your first priority will be your blog post nothing else. Make it user-friendly and simple. Do not spam your blog by using useless widgets. This is the most common mistake every newbie blogger does.

Another common blogging mistake done is choosing wrong color.

 Don’t choose any dark color as your background color. 

3. Blog set-up:

This is the most important thing you must do before you start writing post. Create site-map of your blog, install important recommended plugins and add pages like about us. This is where you will introduce yourself to your readers.

I wrote complete tutorial guide to set-up WordPress blog.

4. Writing blog post:

After you do all the above steps, you will now write your first blog post. You will write all the post related topic to your niche every-time. It is highly recommended to stick to one single niche only.

Now, your first planning will be to give unique and new contents. You will not think or plan to copy cut paste from any other blog at anytime. I see many new bloggers unknowingly do this every-time. This is the most common blogging mistake 90%+ new blogger fall in.

You will not see your blog developing at any time if you do this.

Follow this guide.

5. Sharing:

What do I say about this topic now. I cannot predict the thoughts of people. I see lots of new blogger sharing every-time on Social network, through text, Groups etc. But few of the people are not sharing anything in the social network neither join any group.

It is important to share with your niche related groups because no one will know what you are doing, if you don’t let anybody know.

But you should not spam anybody’s group or page by leaving your link between. It is one of the worst practice I see done by new bloggers. This is very common mistake, you must recover your common blogging mistake to improve your blog’s visibility.

You might be marked as spam if you do that, it will definitely play negative role when it happens.

My mistakes in earlier days of blogging.

I also was a new blogger once a day. I learned from my own mistakes and from few people, Web & books. I also did the most common blogging mistake, which most new bloggers always do.

I copy post just to deliver good information to readers. where as I was having no idea it was illegal.

I even don’t know what was blogging when I just started blogging, but I kept on posting every-day as same.

Another common blogging mistake was, writing short articles, not using SEO plugin or optimizing blog for SEO.

My blog design changes from day-to-day, and used useless spam looking widgets.

Another most common blogging mistake I made was, using lots of banners making my website look odd.

I recommend you not to be part of those people who have common blogging mistake in their blog. Make unique content, plan strategy for your blog.

Try to see your blog as what will your blog be called tomorrow. If you move so, no one can stop you from getting a top class sit in a world of blogging.Avoid common blogging mistake in your near future.
