Writing on any and every subject –

Sometimes, bloggers write about anything though not related to the niche of their blog. Such blogs that are based on different subjects are generally not liked by regular visitors.

  2. Gautam Doddamani says:

    good article as always amit…i really liked the 1st and 2nd point…choosing blogger or other such free blogging platforms has its own disadvantages, not to mention the termination of any account whenever they like!!

    i also agree sticking to our niche topics to blog, blogging about something else will unnecessarily lose subscribers…i have noticed many blogs who do like this but i keep it targeted to my keywords! 🙂

  3. hello Amit sir, nice post i also use to do all these mentioned things but as a new blogger learns new things they start working like a old blogger

    Yeah Bro…. I too use to do the same above mistakes when I entered in the field of Blogging. But due to guidance of many of my bloggers friend I am on the way and trying to improve myself.

  7. Ashraf Kamal says:

    I got every point you said.. it is difficult to write regularly fresh contents if your blog has limited topic, that is why most of the blogger become fail and leave their blogging hobby or work whatever else . So they start writing on different topic which is also not fair. In such condition blogger should stick on particular topic and add another categories/topic gradually with the help of another person who can write for him/her. BTW according to present situation to make money from blogging we should start blog with a team work not alone that will help to balance different topic with rich contents..

  8. I agree copying don’t work at all and also Google doesn’t approve Adsense for the bloggers who copies all the content.But i don’t know why you have written posting without picture since you have not used picture in the article :D. There is only one picture and i think this is the featured image.

    The major mistake that most of the newbies commits after getting entered into blogging is that instead of learning basics of blogging and other important things,they try to focus on making money from their blogs and tries to post duplicated content.
