“Pobody is Nerfect”. This rule applies to bloggers too who work hard daily to explore new things on the web and give new information through their blog. But lots of bloggers do mistakes in their early stage of blogging. It’s hard and rare to accept those mistakes. I want to explore some common bad habits of Bloggers which results in loss of productivity. One should avoid these habits.
List of common bad Habits:
Though, I’m writing this post by keeping Bloggers in mind, but some of these bad habits, applies to normal Internet users too. So, you can start working on them and change your habits to be a better person.
1. Social media addiction
Social media is good to bring traffic on blog. But involving too much in social media and forget your original work (generating content) is not good for your blog. Try to avoid too much social media involvement. Remember that content is the king and it is responsible for traffic. Social media is secondary thing.
2. Work from bed
There are many bloggers who work from bed and they stick to this habit. If you work 1 hour then it would not a serious issue but if you are giving 7 to 10 hours daily for your work then it is a serious matter. For those people we already give some tips to setup office at home for professional blogging.
3. Never proofread articles
I already told you that proofreading article is a best way to find your errors inside the post. Try to read two or three times to find mistakes of your post. Also ensure that don’t start editing your post while writing it.
4. Giving current news
If your blog has some decent traffic then providing breaking news is not incorrect because your post will get a good exposure. But if your blog gets a fever traffic then it is not a good idea to show current news through your blog. Remember, there are several good blogs which are doing this work properly and efficiently.
5. Too much coffee
Coffee is good when you take breaks during your work. But consuming too much coffee (nicotine) is not good for your health and for your work. It will effect your mind and overall productivity.
6. Working in cluttered space
Either you are working from home or you work in office you need to take care of one thing that your work space should be separated from rest of your home. If you are making your bed room as your office then make sure that your room should be spacious, having windows for natural lights and free from any disarrangement.
7. Being non social
My friends always complain that I never find too much time for them. I involve in my work so much that I never found time for any social activities which is actually not good. I am trying to improve my habit. I generally take break from my work (on Sunday) and plan movies and dinner with friends.
8. Working late night
Bloggers love to work late night. Probably this is because in night they found no disturbance. They free to do all their pending work in silence. But I suggest you to work in day time. Try to wake early morning and start working with fresh mind. You don’t need to follow strict 9 to 6 office time but completing all work early in a day would invite some relief to you.
9. Drinking habit
We came up with post Why Bloggers Drink and How to Avoid Drinking in which we discussed about rise of drinking and smoking culture in bloggers. We also give ideas to get rid of this habit.
10. No vacations
Working all the time causes lots of strain inside our brain. It increases stress level and you may lose your interest from your work. Vacation give us opportunity to recharge and regenerate our power. Try to schedule your post in WordPress and fly off somewhere. In this period do not do any work instead of checking important mail and replying to clients.
