Beginner Blogging Mistakes To Avoid
When I started my first blog in 2013, I made a lot of mistakes which helped me become better at what I'm doing. I'll outline the most common mistakes people make when starting a blog.

1. Not Submitting A Sitemap.

This is very common among new bloggers. A Sitemap helps search engines index your site properly. The result of not adding this causes poor SEO. As a result, it's helped in the SEO of my blog and most of my traffic come from search engines. I get roughly about  25,000 visits per week from Google.

2. Sharing Posts By Themselves

Sharing your posts by yourself is cool but when you start posting constantly it'll definitely weigh you down. Most New Bloggers tend to do this. The best way i recommend is to use services like IFTTT, Hootsuite, Postcron or Dlvr.

With IFTTT my posts are automatically shared to Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Pinterest, Reddit and other sites as well. Hootsuite and Postcron can help you post in Facebook groups

3. Searching For New Content

This isn't limited to new bloggers. Constantly searching different sites to get what you'll post will get you tired of posting in a short time as you've wasted important time on searching for content. Always use an rss feed reader to curate content. Once the other sites post, you get the update on your phone or computer. It's that simple.

4. Not Choosing A Niche

Some new bloggers don't know anything about choosing a niche. They'll simply rush into entertainment blogging and blog about every thing they come across.  My friend, you're not a newspaper. Get a niche and make yourself a force to reckon with on that niche. Posting about everything simply makes you this -  Jack of all trades but master of none.

I drop my pen at this point.

It takes so long to learn simplicity.
