Every single day so many new blogs are born in the cyber space, and according to statistics, about 95% of these new bloggers will never succeed.
There is a reason to everything in life …. and there are reasons to why most new bloggers online never really make it big. Today, I’m going to share with you the most common newbie blogging mistakes online.
Let me get straight to the point here. 😀
Most Common Newbie Blogging Mistakes Online
Blogging Mistake # 1
– Lack of organization
It is very very important that you get really organized when working online. You must get everything organized; links, resources, tools, etc.
Just take a look at how I have my stuff organized on my internet browser (mozilla firefox).
As you can see, I have all of the resources I need very organized. This way I can come online, and get to work right away. Doing this, keeps me productive online.
If you are having a hard time staying productive online, I highly recommend you to get organized!
Keeping organized will help you keep yourself productive. It is not hard to get organized, you just need to make the decision to do it, and just do it!
Here is a good blog post on this subject: How to Become More Organized and Efficient When Working Online
Blogging Mistake # 2
– Lack of productivity
You need to stay productive when you are working on your blog online. Keeping organized is one way to do so.
I know how it is to procrastinate. I know how it is to click around, and check your facebook every 10 minutes. It is easier to just kill time doing entertaining stuff than writing valuable blog posts and marketing your blog online.
Know exactly what you need to be doing daily.
One good way to keep yourself productive is to learn exactly what you need to be doing online. Once you know what you need to do, write it down.
Invest in your blogging and internet marketing education.
Make a daily plan you can follow. Come up with your own checklist, and make sure you get everything done!
You can find great trainings online, and you can also bookmark my blog here – there is a lot of great knowledge on this site.
Take quick breaks often.
It is important that you take breaks away from the computer and the internet, often. Taking quick breaks will help you stay focused on your tasks.
When you feel like you need a quick break, take a quick break!
Then get back at it!
Get good sleep, and get good naps.
Having enough sleep every night is very important. You might also want to take an hour to two hours nap throughout your day. They say naps are healthy, and it keeps you fresh.
You can take a break for a two-hour nap, for an instance. Getting good sleep will help your brain perform at its best and it will also help you concentrate a lot better.
Eat healthy, and exercise often.
Keeping a healthy body and brain will help you stay productive. You need to have a clear mind, and a healthy body, in order to laser focus and fully concentrate on what you need to get done online.
You can take a quick break to do some exercise, or eat a healthy snack. Keeping yourself healthy will help you keep your productivity healthy! 😉 …. you know what I mean!
Just do whatever you gotta do to keep yourself very productive online. Get rid of distractions!
Everyone has their own way to keep productive. Find your own way to become a productive person, find out what works best for you, and stick with it.
Blogging Mistake # 3
– Lack of consistency
This is a challenging one. One of the biggest mistakes that hurt my progress while trying to build a successful blog online, was the lack of consistency with the necessary work.
You must keep consistent with the work!
They say hard work pays off, and it really does. But, what pays off even more, is CONSISTENT hard work!
Consistency is key to success in anything. You need to understand this very well, and realize that you need to be as consistent as possible with everything you need to do to build a successful blog online. Especially at the beginning.
You need to get your blog off the ground, and get the ball rolling!
The hardest and most consistent work will be at the beginning of your blogging journey. Trust me, it gets easier as you move forward.
Once your blog starts building up organic traffic, you can relax a little bit more and work less.
Remind yourself WHY you need to build a successful blog online, DAILY.
Keeping your WHY in mind at all times, will help you stay consistent with what you have to do every day. Fuel yourself up with motivation and inspiration to keep taking steps forward every single day.
I know how important it is to keep yourself motivated every day, in order to keep doing the necessary work – this is why I have a section on this blog called Motivation – do whatever gets you motivated and inspired daily!

Blogging Mistake # 4
– Bad prioritization
Prioritizing things in an order of importance will help you stay productive. You must learn how to prioritize your daily tasks the right way. If you do not, you might have a hard time making big progress online.
For example; you only have 2 spare hours in the morning, what would be more important for you to do online, writing a valuable blog post or replying to your messages and notifications on Facebook? …
You tell me in a comment below!
This is a mistake I have also made during my blogging journey online. It is easy to fall into bad prioritization. Sometimes we need to step back, and look at what exactly we are doing online, and most importantly, HOW we are doing things online.
Learn how to prioritize your tasks online the best way possible!
This is why you should really invest in your education here. You must learn what the right process to building a successful blog online is. So you can prioritize your online tasks the best way possible.
