Despiote all the blogging advice and courses out there, many bloggers (myself foremost) feel that they made some mistakes when they started out. Today’s discussion involves a recap of the thiongs that we did wrong and what we should have done instead. I am sure this will help lots of fledgling bloggers out there.
What mistakes did you make in the first few months of blogging?
I made a truck load of mistakes to begin with and will share only a few here owing to constraints of time, space and my readers’ patience.
A big mistake was wasting loads of time researching themes. I had no idea that not all themes were compatible with every WordPress plan. The one I chose finally was the one recommended by a Happiness Engineer who asked me my requirements and made the suggestion.
Another mistake was watching random YouTube videos on blogging without checking the presenters’ credentials. A lot of the “advice” was absolute rubbish as I learned later.
What I did not realise at first was that blogging is a “learn as you go” experience. Like driving, the more you practice the more you learn.
There are many other things that I should have done better or not done at all.
How about you? Did you make any mistakes in your early days of blogging?
I would love to hear about them.
