In the early days of my blogging I made lots of mistakes but I learn from them and now I am a successful blogger. In this article I’m writing about those mistakes a blogger should avoid to become a successful blogger.

1. Blogging Without Your Own Domain
This is a common mistakes, everybody starts blogging with a free domain. The main reason behind starting from a free blog is that its free of cost. But one should keep one thing in mind that free blogs can never give you complete control over your blog. So I suggest new bloggers to start your blog with your own domain and own hosting.

2. Irregular Posting
Regular posting is the key to success in the world of blogging. You should always avoid irregular posting. Lots of bloggers start-up well and use to write everyday but after some time they start posting with irregularity. This is not a good sign for the readers of your blog. So always avoid the habit of irregular posting and post regularly.
3. Too Many Ads
Lots of bloggers think that they can earn money overnight from their blog by putting so many ads. But this can irritate your readers. I am not against putting ads on the blog in early days but you should not put too many ad network ads on your blog. Also, using too many ads will affect your search engine ranking according to latest page ad layout algo by Google.
I recommend you to refer to Adsense heatmap to add ads at suitable places on your Blog.
4. Choosing A Niche You Have No Interest
This is another common mistake of new bloggers. They read about the success stories of another bloggers and they start following them and start the blog of same niche. But they don’t have any interest in it. So it can cause a big set back for your blog as you can’t write for long time on any topic if you don’t have any interest in that topic. So always keep your interest in mind before selecting the niche of your blog.
5. Giving Up Too Early
Everybody wants to earn money online and they start thinking that they can become rich overnight by blogging. But when they start blogging and they didn’t earn anything for some time then they give up blogging. Everyone who want to become blogger he/she should keep in mind that blogging is not as easy as it looks. It takes lot of hard word and patience. You can never get success overnight in blogging. So never give up too early. If you work hard and have patience then you will get success in blogging. Hard work and patience is the key to success in blogging.
These are the mistake which I made in the early days of my blogging career. Please do share your experience in the comments section.
