Top 7 mistakes made by bloggers

By Mohnish On January 23, 2009 4 Comments

Let me put some spotlight on the Top 7 mistakes made by bloggers. If your a blogger and your making any of the following mistakes, you need to change yourself 😉

Lazy to update your blog
This is a common mistake and is done by alot of bloggers.. So blog about anything if you don’t have a topic to blog about. Just blog about your blog updates, coming up stuff, changes etc etc.. This keeps your readers updated about you and your work 😉

Blogging only for money
This is the second mistake which is pretty common. Many bloggers don’t update their blogs until they get a sponsor for that post or they are “gaining” something.This is not only limited to reviews, but also to “Click my Adsense Ads if you like my blog” kinda messages at the end of your post. But they forget that they are losing subscribers/readers 🙂

Your view and opinion
Third mistake and maybe your most viral one. You might be a good blogger but you need to tell your readers what you think about a topic and not what others think.

Post Flooding
I won’t say that this is a mistake, but it isn’t good if your just flooding your blog by copy pasting the posts from another blog(s). You get search engine traffic, but its a waste.. They won’t visit again. If it is your original content and you are still post flooding, its useless! Your readers might not leave their comments. So make it a habit to make no more than 2 posts a day for a good reader followup 🙂

You can blog the cool way like me or blog the serious way! My way of blogging is a bit chatty style.. I do not concentrate much on my grammer and try to keep my articles in as much simple as possible.

Replying to your comments
If you don’t reply and interact with your readers.. your hardwork is useless! You need to interact with your readers to know what they want next from you. You will also get new idea about your next article.

Blogging for search engines and not your readers
Who are you blogging for? Search engines or your readers? Well.. Sometimes it is good to blog for search engines, but only ‘some times’.. Don’t make this a habit and lose your readers!

Not reading Sensonize.com
Your biggest mistake… 😉

Top 10 WordPress Plugins by Monty

By Mohnish On November 14, 2008 4 Comments

I don’t know about others, but according to me.. these are the TOP 10 WordPress Plugins that a blogger needs 🙂

1) Akismet
To stop the daily increasing spam and to keep your blog neat and clean. A spam blocker is needed and Akismet is a perfect plugin to stop spam and non relevant comments on your blog 🙂

2) Sociable
To allow your readers bookmark their favorite social bookmarking site! This also helps you get huge back links 😉

3) WP Super Cache
Have alot of readers and not enough server resources? Or are you on a shared web hosting and your host does not allow you to host big sites.. This plugin will help you decrease the server load by almost 50-60%!

4) Yet Another Related Post Plugin
Yet Another Related Posts Plugin (YARPP) gives you a list of posts and/or pages related to the current entry, introducing the reader to other relevant content on your site

5) Register Plus
Enhance your Registration Page. Allow users to set their password, setup invite code and track sign ups.

6) Top Commentators Widget
Just like a blogroll.. allow your visitors add a backlink in your Top Comments Widget by commenting on your blog! What do they get? They get a backlink to their site on every page as long as they are top commentators of your blog 😉

7) CommentLuv
Pass a bit of luv onto your commenters by providing a titled link to their last blog post. This plugin attempts to parse the feed of the comment author by visiting their site and looking for their feed while they type their comment and appends it once they submit.

8) Recent Comments
This plugin shows excerpts of the latest comments and/or trackbacks in your sidebar. The benefit about this plugin is that it allows your regular commentors get backlinks on Search Engines 😉

9) Subscribe Remind
With the Subscribe-Remind plugin, some text will automatically be placed at the end of each of your posts inviting your readers to subscribe to your RSS feed.

10) Comment Approval Notification
The Comment Approval Notification plugin will send an email to the comment author when you approve their comment.

This was according to me, but I’m sure there might be way more plugins to increase your readers and make your blog better 🙂
