Do Not Follow The Story Tellers

Many bloggers found themselves blogging after reading the success stories of many successful blogger,entrepreneur etc who are in the habit of  posting or making public fake or even original traffic and earnings figures without telling you the real secret behind their successes and how long it took them to achieve such successes. While some of those  traffic ,earnings and other success stories may be true,it is important to note that no one can become successful by living others peoples dream.The sooner you realizes blogging cannot make you the rich monster you are dreaming of the better for you,blogging demands time,patience and handwork which is only proceeded by revenue after painstakingly building your blog reputation  and the much needed traffics.

Avoid Offensive ads

Avoiding ambiguous words and sticking to simple words which the ordinary man can comprehend will e of great benefit to your blog,so desist from them.

Too Lengthy Post

There are diverse opinion on how lenghty a blogpost should be,while some suggest 500 to 600 word count is of most seo importance,others sugest a word count of not less than 1000.The best length for a blog post to me  is however how  the number of  words it takes you to get your message across and make it clearly understood,ut also try as much as possible to be concise and straight to the point,other,with a lenghty post,you are on the verge of telling your visitors Go AWAY AND COME NO MORE

Regular Update

    Sometimes one cannot avoid putting to much grammar on their blog. I mean some do it because there are also blogs that needs it like those business type thing. But when you do a blog like for entertaining, grammar isn’t much of a help.
