There are some mistakes Bloggers often make.  Most of these mistakes are easy to avoid, and you could also not to create them in the first place.

Number One: Not sticking to the topic of your blog.   Blogs are designed around a theme - and the more focused the theme, the more likely you'll attract interested traffic.  Most new bloggers however either 'cast around' for a theme, hoping to hit on something that works, or are just scattered in general. Solution - keep your posts as focused as possible on the overall topic that you set out for your blog.


Number Two: Not driving traffic to their sites.


Blogging isn't just about posting content.  Unfortunately, most people think that 'if they build it, they will come' and that’s simply not true. not updating often enough - most bloggers start out really well - they write lots of posts and then, it tapers off.  They become discouraged, or worse, they think they aren't doing 'it right'.  Blogging needs just as much attention as any other
site, sometimes more so - and like most sites, unless you hit on something really big, you'll find that you don't make much of an impact at first.


Driving traffic to your site CAN be fairly simple though - you can do it by taking part in other sites, and using your URL in your sign line, you can comment on other blogs, or bookmark your site - with wide exposure you'll gain far more traffic than simply relying
on SEO.


Number Three: Not connecting with others in your niche solution – it’s important to contact others in your niche, because it gives you a chance to participate in link exchanges.  One of the
best ways to do this is 'mutually' recommend one another's sites - you can do this, quite simply, by asking the site owner to review your site, and you can do the same.  That way, you'll build a more valuable 'link base' for the person you're reviewing, and though they are creating a two way link exchange with you, the review style link exchange is always more valuable.

The most important thing is not what mistakes bloggers make, you can always  fix them - you just have to work on the e solution, and implementing the solutions will help immensely.
