Common Mistake Newbies Commits When Choosing What to blog about

Before i tell you How to choose the topic for blogging i want to let you know some common mistake newbie blogger commit. This will not only help you avoid this mistake but it will also help you to get more focused about choosing topic for your blog.

1. Following the Crowd :

It is the most common mistake and generally made by most of them, Like an Example you will find many of new bloggers blogging on Tech niche and there is tough competition on that as already there are many popular blogs working on that example : Labnol.org, TechCrunch etc. Due to tough competition ranking on those niche is very tough, even if they get ranked they didn’t get enough traffic.

Even Traffic stats of many popular blogs has been affected badly due to tough competition on it

2. Choosing Seasonal Topic :

This is also a common mistake for a newbie as they doesn’t know about blogging much, what they choose at that time like a topic like New Year, Valentine Day etc. What happens after that it will get good result only at the time of that season after that you will have to wait for the whole year. So i will suggest you to start on Evergreen topic like Education, Health, SMS etc.

3. Expecting Immediate Result :

When i was new i was also expecting immediate result and was thinking to leave blogging, but after that few days later i had read some where, in blogging getting immediate result is only possible by spamming which we should not do if you are thinking for long term blogging.

4. Following Success Stories :

Those success stories are only made to inspire you and motivate you for blogging, but many newbies what do is they started following the same steps as them but they didn’t get succeed Why? “Because it is not possible that the steps which work for that person will surely work for us” So try to learn from them and apply the things you had learned and experienced.

      I had found many bloggers are blogging on topic which is irrelavant to their blog, because they don’t have sufficient content to write.
      Which made me think to create a post on it.

    1. Hey Areesha Noor,

      Yes we should take care while choosing topic for our blog, so that we can decide whether we will get succeed in future or not. Because it is the major thing which decide our success in blogging.
      And You were talking about Event Blogging in which we can able to rank our blog for a particular event.
      This way we make Good $$$$.


  4. I think before even getting starting to blog you must know why, you are actually to make money. Some people just do not have a strong enough why to keep going and end jumping to next shining object that they think will help them.

    Choosing a topic to make money is an important factor and knowing the type of readers you want. You need to understand the readers before you even start blogging, just putting my though down.

    Your right all five of keys play a big part, but your why is most important factor.
