Last night while trolling the internet to find information on how to easily syndicate and curate content I came across this article about the 10 worst things to do when blogging.  I’ve been guilty of several of them.  I’m doing better now. . . I swear.   Thanks to heartifb.com for sharing this info.

Finding the marketing guidelines for increasing your traffic isn’t hard with the plethora of available sources (like here , here and here .) But what about the don’ts of blogging? It’s not until you have a mishap that you realize what not to do in blogging.

1. Take a long break from posting

2. Forget to share your posts on social media

3. Drastically change the content of your site without warning

4. Post repeatedly on the same topic

5. Post at off-peak Internet hours

6. Don’t register your blog with Bloglovin

7. Ignore your analytics

8. Ignore your readers

9.  Turn your blog into one big Instagram feed

10. Use your blog as a platform for negativity and hostility

    Oops! Looks like I’ve been doing most of the No Nos especially #5! I thought that was the best time to post anything in case you need to delete or edit what you’ve posted!

      A way to alleviate that is go ahead and write but schedule it to go live at a better time. That’s what I try to do. You can still preview and edit and tweak all you want. My feedburner newsletter is scheduled to go out in the morning so I try to schedule my posts either right before the newsletter goes out, at 2PM in the afternoon when there are a lot of people on Twitter or at 8PM when there are a lot of people just finishing work and supper and checking their feeds.
