The time you spend on the internet, you will realise that there are many misconceptions about blogging. Everyone’s blogging experience is different and so are the strategies you use as a blogger!
Not every blogger will grow or manage their blogs the same way as they will implement different tasks into their blogging routine. The issues occur when misinformation is spread, as it can have a huge impact on new bloggers as well as routine bloggers!
There are so many bloggers tips online, but one thing I always stand by is going with your gut feeling. If you don’t try something you’ll never know what works for you. In this blog I wanted to share the blogging myths that I often see online, some bloggers might agree others may not.
YOU HAVE TO PUBLISH A BLOG POST EVERYDAY TO GROW QUICKLY
This is something I’ve seen a lot, that is if you want to notice a difference in terms of growth or traffic, you need to be publishing blog posts consistently. Posting once, twice or thrice a week but the important part is that you post at a consistent rate. Publishing blogs everyday could mean that people avoiding some of your content. No one can publish a blog post every single day, for a long period of time. Try to write good quality content on a regular basis, what regular means for you might be something different to someone else, experiment to see what works!
YOU NEED TO HAVE A LOT OF FOLLOWERS IN ORDER TO RECEIVE OPPORTUNITIES
This is a common misconception and it couldn’t be further from the truth! There are several things that a brand looks for when working with a blogger. The number of followers you have might be high on the list, but the majority of the time brands don’t really check it. Will it help you reach more opportunities? Absolutely! But don’t only focus on the number of followers you have. You need to look at so many other things!
YOU CAN ONLY HAVE A SUCCESSFUL BLOG IF YOU INCORPORATE POPULAR OR NICHE TOPICS
A lot of people start to write about other topics which are very successful when they want to grow their blogs. Every blogger has the right to write about a topic if they are truly passionate about that specific topic. If you think that incorporating a popular topic will help you reach a wider audience and attract a lot of people but that is completely wrong. Think about it, how hard would it be to stand out in a niche where there is literally thousands if not millions of blogs written about it.
So there you have it, some blogging myths that make little sense! But if you have any doubts about myths you read online, talk to other bloggers, reach out! It’s always best to know whether its a myth or not!
