10 Common Reasons Why You’re Still a Struggling Blogger

You've just thought of the best idea for a blog. You're excited.

You think you're going to become the next 6-figure earner.

But it turns out blogging isn't exactly what you thought it would be.

Not even close.

You're making mistakes left and right.

blogging mistakes

But which ones are costing you? Which ones are killing your chances at blogging success?

I'll tell you.

In this post, I'll show you the top 10 mistakes you have to stop making.

Let's get started.

1. NOT Making Any Blogger Friends

Building relationships with bloggers and influencers in your industry is an absolute must, these days.

You can't do it alone. Especially now that there's a lot of competition (practically in every industry).

Competition…

Instead of trying to beat them, which could take months (if not years), help them, so that they can help you.

You see, that's the key to these relationships…

You help them out, and then down the line, they help you. This can be through sharing content, guest posting, backlinks, product promotions, etc.

So what do you do? How exactly do you build a relationship with some blogger you don't know…and that doesn't know you?

Two words:

Blogger outreach.

Huh?

Blogger outreach is basically targeting a blogger with an audience, helping him out in any way you can, and asking him if he can help you. Basically being a buddy.

Most of the time there's no money involved.

You help them by:

  • sharing his content
  • giving him backlinks
  • promoting his products
  • etc

And a while after you've done your part, you can shoot him an email asking if he can _____. This can be a backlink, a guest post, a social share, or even to participate in an expert roundup.

Another strong way to becoming buds with bloggers is to take action on a particular piece of advice they shared on their blog.

For instance, a strategy that is designed to get you a lot of free traffic from Quora in 10 days.

You do it, 10 days later you see a massive spike in traffic.

You'd then show him your amazing results, and bam. You're on his good side, possibly forever.

You might even become a case study. Or maybe even a regular contributor in his blog.

So, if you think you can become a success all on your own, think again.

Blogger outreach is the way to go.

2. Relying on Google for Traffic

There is a lot of competition these days. Pretty much in every niche. Right?

And there are only so many available spots on the Google SERPs. 10 to be exact. And 3 if you want the most traffic.

So, what do you do?

You look into other ways to drive traffic.

Like what I'm doing here, which is guest blogging.

Becoming a guest contributor, especially on a reputable blog, can drive hundreds of new visitors.

See my guide at Blogging Aid for more info.

Another way is to put together an epic expert roundup.

Robbie Richards published one that featured 58 experts and got over 1800 shares and 10000's of views.

Not bad for a blog with only 20 blog posts.

Another way? An ego=bait list post.

This is basically a “top blogs to follow” post. But with a small twist…

Instead of “to follow” you go with some solution like “become a better blogger”. Plus, you'll have to write a short summary for each blog or expert you feature.

I used this to drive 2000 views to my 1-month old blog last month.

The last way I'll share with you is through blog commenting.

Sue is a pro at this.

She comments on dozens of blog posts every week. And especially if she's one of the first ones, she sees dozens of visitors come her way.

Adrienne Smith is another pro at blog commenting. Which is why I'll leave this with a link to her post – What You Need to Know About Blog Commenting.

3. NOT Getting Into List Building

An email list…

It's one of the most important assets you could ever have online.

It's actually a key factor to whether you make 3 figures or 6.

According to a source, by the end of 2016, it's expected to be at 4.3 billion email accounts worldwide.

And if you're not building that list, you're making a huge mistake.

So, what do you do?

You start building that list, today.

Start by signing up for an email marketing service, like Mailchimp (free for your first 2000 subscribers), Aweber, and GetResponse.

Then you'll need opt-in forms. I recommend SumoMe's apps. They're free.

And last, you'll need to create a lead magnet (something to offer your visitors in exchange for their email addresses).

I suggest you check out Hectorpreneur's guide to list building. It has everything you need to get started.

4. NOT Using a Lead Magnet

Ok, so if you are building your mailing list, then cool.

What's not cool is if you're doing it the old “sign up for free updates” way.

You're not going to get anywhere with that.

Sure, you might manage to gain a couple of subscribers here and there. But you'd still be wasting tons of traffic.

So, what do you do?

You create a lead magnet and offer it to your visitors in exchange for their email addresses.

A lead magnet could be a number of things. It could be a:

  • checklist
  • cheat sheet
  • ebook
  • special report
  • case study
  • infographic
  • and more

Sue wrote a post at Blogging Wizard that'll help you out with this.

5. Writing WEAK Blog Content

Here's the deal:

Your content is the lifeblood of your blog. If it's not great, then your blog won't last very long.

It's got to be relevant.

Nobody wants to read about puppies on a travel blog. No matter how cute they are.

It's got to focus on the readers needs.

If you're blogging for women who want to lose fat after pregnancy, your content should only be stuff that would help the women lose their belly fat.

Your content also has to well-formatted. Short paragraphs, proper usage of subheads, images etc.

Kevin Duncan has everything you need to know about writing content in his 10,000-word guide at Be a Better Blogger.

6. Publishing and Praying

Huh?

It's when you publish a post and hope it gets ranked, shares, and traffic.

But, like I said, waiting for Google to send you traffic is not a good deal.

The same goes for social media and other traffic sources.

If you don't put your post out there, meaning if you don't promote it like a madman (everywhere you can), you won't see any traffic.

So, what do you do?

Promote your content.

A lot of pros recommend the 80/20 rule. 80% for promoting your content, 20% for creating your content.

You can start by sharing your posts on social media. But that won't do much if you don't have much followers/friends.

If that's the case, your best shot is to start linking out to resources, bloggers. and influencers. And then let them know about it (via email or social media).

Another thing you could do is become an active member of online communities and forums.

LinkedIn groups, Google+ Communities, Reddit, Quora, Inbound.org, and GrowthHackers.com are just some of the many sites you could go to.

Plus send it out to your list, whatever size it is. aWeber email marketing or Mailchimp are great for beginning bloggers.

Pro tip: If you don't know much about what I'm talking about, I'd suggest you only pick one or two new traffic sources (for now).

Robbie Richards shares his 16 content promotion strategies on his blog. Check it out.

And Tamas Torok at Momentum wrote 50 tips to skyrocket your content.

7. NOT Following a Schedule

I'll be honest:

When I started blogging, I never had a schedule. I just did things. You know?

I spend 10 hours one day, 8 hours the next, and maybe 4-6 hours the day after.

And you know what? I regret it.

I wish I used my time better.

I wish I was more organized.

I would've gotten so much more done.

Because you know, there are only 24 hours today, 6-8 of them you won't be conscious, so that only leaves you about 16 hours of playtime per day.

How will you use them?

Here's an idea:

  • Spend 2 hours reading and learning about your industry.
  • Spend 5 hours on your blog content + research and promotion (don't have to publish).
  • Spend 2 hours on connecting with bloggers and influencers.
  • Spend 1 hour looking for guest posting opportunities (and pitching).
  • Spend 1 hour researching other traffic sources.
  • Spend 1 hour engaging with 1-3 online communities and forums.
  • Spend 4 hours in breaks. 4 1-hour breaks (ex: 12pm, 4pm, 7pm, 10pm).

But, what if you have a 9-5 job?

Well, that would only leave you with about 4-6 hours, wouldn't it?

If that's the case, I'd recommend spending your time on connecting with bloggers and influencers. This will lead to greater opportunities.

You'll be able to:

  • land guest posts
  • get them to promote/share your content
  • get them to link out to you in their content
  • and more

All this will lead to more blog traffic, and eventually clients and customers.

8. Not Following a Posting Schedule

Your content schedule is also very important.

If you don't have one, I suggest you get one.

A content schedule will keep you on track. It'll keep you consistent, which will lead to a quality, content-rich blog.

So, what do you do?

First of all, you'll have to find out the best times you're readers visit…Monday? Tuesday? Friday?

Now, since you probably have little to no traffic, it's going to be quite difficult to find this out, isn't it?

If that's the case, then I would recommend figuring out what days you would work best on.

Also, think about the spread. Would you be committed to posting every 3 days or 7? You know what I mean?

But if you do have some traffic, maybe around a few hundred to a couple thousand hits per month, you can look through your analytics and find which days you get the most traffic on.

Then you could use a tool like CoSchedule or even a simple excel or Google doc for writing out your plan.

The CoShedule blog published an awesome guide on planning a blog schedule. Check it out.

9. Having an Ugly/Annoying Blog Design

If you think all sorts of pretty colors and neat features are going to make your blog look cool, think again. They can actually be annoying and distracting.

Also, a bunch of ads all over your blog isn't doing anybody any good. Especially you.

Ads are a waste of time and space when you don't have a lot of traffic. You'd need at least 100K monthly visits to make $100 per month. Seriously.

Even then, it's not worth it. They make your whole site look unprofessional.

Other blog design problems are:

  • content not properly formatted
  • poorly or non-optimized images
  • no clear navigation
  • unprofessional logo
  • use of unnecessary plugins
  • cluttered up your sidebar and/or footer
  • use of multiple sidebars
  • use of popup ads (the only popup you should be using is one for lead capture)

Another thing is using all of your theme's features. Like sliders, sidebar widgets, multiple blog columns and menus, and all that other cool stuff.

Sure, they can make your blog look awesome.

But you know what?

Every single one of those features can distract the visitor from your most important content.

It could also get pretty overwhelming.

So what do you do?

You keep your design professional.

This means no cool features (like sliders and widgets), a clean navigation menu, and 2-3 colors max.

You might even consider removing your sidebar altogether.

Here are some things to think about:

  • professional logo – if you're not a designer, hire someone.
  • clean header – only your logo and menu should be here.
  • clean sidebar – no unnecessary widgets (or maybe just let it go).
  • clean footer – a secondary menu, social links, a mini about me section, and an opt-in form are all footer stuff.
  • blog page – all your featured images should be the same width.
  • homepage – this could be your blog page. But you could do something like Blogging Wizard's homepage.

Blogger Sidekick's blog design guide has some great tips if you'd like to learn more about this topic.

10. Not Caring About Your Headlines

Headlines are extremely important.

They're the main reason people click on your post in the search engines, social media, and even on your blog.

Sure, I could have included this in #5 of this list. But not spending enough time on your headlines is a big enough problem to get its own spot on this list.

So, what is a bad headline?

A bad headline is the one that doesn't tell the user what the post is about.

A bad headline is the one that is misleading.

A bad headline is the one that looks and sounds unfinished.

Let me show you some examples.

Post topic – weight loss tips for women:

  • Bad headline – Weight Loss Tips For Women
  • Good headline – 101 Simple Weight Loss Tips For Women of All Ages

Post topic – make money online:

  • Bad headline – Ways to Make Money Online
  • Good headline – Make Money Online: 17 Ways That Actually Work

Post topic: start a blog

  • Bad headline – Start a Blog Today
  • Good headline – How to Start a Blog Today: A Step-by-Step Guide

Post topic: free email opt-in forms

  • Bad headline: The Best Optin Plugins of All-time
  • Good headline – Top 5 Email Optin Plugins You Can Use For Free

If you have trouble creating headlines, there is a lot of info out there that could help.

Conclusion

Mistakes, you'll always make them. Some can cost you more than others.

The 10 I showed you above, they're biggies. So, if you know, or at least, you think you're making them, then you have some work to do.

    Hello Julian. Although in the context of this article your no.1 point is valid and friends are really very important in Blogging. However, It is not necessory at all in certain cases. For example, I personally know several bloggers who want to stay silent and would not like to network at all. They are making 10K to 20K /month from Google Traffic.

    Since they are making huge money, they don’t require any friends. They know what they are doing. But I agree that making friends is very important to stay in the business for the long run.

    Everyone has their own priorities when it comes to doing business online. We can’t all make friends.

      Good point, sir.

      Thanks for swinging by and leaving your thoughts, Bilal.

    • says

      Just gonna pop in here for a second Bilal – and Julian – to share my take on this point. Oh hell yeah you can make some dough blogging by doing well on Google. Or with other systems in place. Where you need not make buddies. But in many cases, this approach can feel entirely unfulfilling.

      When I visited Warrior daily – the Forum, that is, not a violent fighter – I read again and again how folks would reach certain income goals by gaming a system, then got bored. Little happiness there. Just a game. Boring.

      Heck, if folks have immense fun doing this gig without making friends, more power to them. I’ve done the friend and no-networking route, and this friend-connecting bit is so much more fun to me.

      Thanks for sharing guys.

      • says

        Hello Ryan.

        As I mentioned earlier, friends are indeed important in internet marketing industry. Without networking, it is hard to survive because we all at some point need help and guidines. Whether it be in terms of knowledge, expert opinion or any other shape.

        But we can’t say if someone is not making friends, he is struggling. Every one’s priorities may not be the same. For example to get fame or long term success but to make quick income. That is what I wanted to say in the above reply.

        Success can be measured in different ways. Money, fame, reputation all are the different attributes that make someone successful. One may be happy with just one and other may need all of them.

    Hi Julian,

    It’s nice to meet you. Thank you for sharing these points with us. I happen to agree with you and made some of these mistakes myself with I first started blogging.

    These things can definitely prolong a blog to make money.

    Have a great week.

      Yeah…you have a great week too Corina.

    [ Smiles ] Splendid advice.

    Honestly. I think that one of the biggest mistakes is, not promoting your blog on social media.

    And, relying on Google for incoming traffic is a thing of the past!

      Yeah man.

      Thanks for reading my stuff, eh! 😀

    First and the fourth one are the most common mistakes, most of the bloggers have done it at some point of time.

  6. says

    Hi Julian!
    It’s great to see you on Sue’s blog!
    Your post is spot on, and I think #1 is HUGE. When I first started blogging, I had no idea about blogger outreach.
    So glad I wised up. Through connecting and commenting, I’ve met so many wonderful bloggers who I can count on to help share a post, leave a comment or even contribute to a round up post 🙂 (I think I discovered Blogging Aid through a comment you left on Ryan B’s blog)

    Have a great week!

    • Julian says

      Yeah. That’s awesome.

      I think #1 is huge also. 🙂 Which is why it’s at #1. 😛

  7. says

    Hi Julian!

    It’s clear you’re pretty spot on here because I made a lot of these mistakes when I was starting out myself hahaha… and for several years after that as well.

    At the time Google was by far my best source of traffic so the only thing that made sense to me was to publish more and more content, thinking that was the solution to getting more traffic. Unfortunately that strategy left me with little time to market, network, and really engage with the following that I already had.

    I did eventually get my head straight but when I decided to step into the MMO market the game changed and I was forced to really switch things up. Google traffic in a competitive market like this one is much harder to come by then it used to be.

    Solid resource here Julian and one I wish I would have had around when I was starting out!

    • Julian says

      Yeah, I made so many mistakes, too. Some are so dumb I laugh about them today. hehe 😛

      One other biggie is “learning” from the wrong people. Or “gurus” you know.

      I was taught a bunch of stuff that never worked or was outdated when I first started. hehe It sucks. But, at least I know now.

  8. says

    Hi Julian Sakanee,

    Few minutes ago, i landed on your blog for the first time and i must confess that going carefully through the above list was worth my time.

    I presently feel that #2 is a major challenge on my part (though i am currently working on it 🙂 ) .

    The feeling one encounters when one places a high level of hope on Google but end up getting no positive result, is enough to pull one off the bloggingsphere faster than one can imagine.

    Once again, i believed I’ve learnt something new and I’m glad about that!!…

    Thanks for sharing this precious resource… IT WAS HELPFUL!

      I hope you find another good source of traffic OR get some first page rankings, EH!! 😀

  9. says

    Back in the days, it was much easier to get ranked. Now if you want to get readers, you really need to write some good articles to attract traffic. But also, some of the methods that you’ve described can be suitable for some blog if they want to attract an audience on a certain niche.

  11. says

    If only publishing and praying worked. 🙂 It may sound funny, but I bet a lot of us have been guilty of this one at some point. Especially in our early days as bloggers.

    I used to be extremely guilty of number 7 (not following a schedule). Actually, I’m still guilty of that one, but not as much these days. I’ve been working hard to make sure I stick to my schedule. Whenever I do, I see a big difference in my productivity.

      Publishing and praying…haha yeah.

      And yeah, following a schedule helps a lot with productivity. 🙂 I also like to time myself when I’m writing. Something like 15-30 mins of writing and 5-10 min breaks.

      Oh, thanks for stopping by, Tiffany. 🙂

      Your themes look awesome, btw. Makes me feel like starting a mom blog. lol kidding

  12. says

    Thanks for this information. The most neglected part of it is blog commenting, I never do it before until I understood its benefits.

  13. says

    Hello Julian,
    Thank you for sharing these points with us. I think that one of the biggest mistakes is, not promoting your blog on social media.

    • Julian says

      Yeah, Mansi.

      Social media is very important. 🙂

  14. says

    Hi Julian,
    You almost mention every single mistake that i did when i start blogging. But one think that you forget is that, Email Subscribers, i have seen most of blogger not focus on email subscribers, this is what if you have you can get 1000 of visitor without promoting your content.

  15. says

    HI Julian,

    I am blogging since long-time but not able to earn money as I expected after going through this blog post I did some introspection about myself, I am not doing all the mistakes but I am not concentrating on guest blog posts, not building relationships with other blogs.

    These days relying only on Google will not suffice our requirement so we need use all the techniques to drive traffic to our blog, thanks for sharing such a wonderful article, see you soon with another article.

      Hey Sid,

      Yeah, Google could take a while for some traffic.

      But that doesn’t mean you should ignore SEO altogether.

      Keeping your blog optimized for search and looking into other traffic methods/sources is what you should do.

      🙂

      How long have you been blogging?

  16. says

    I did make some of this mistakes in my early days of blogging, rellying on only Google for traffic can be very dangerous.

  17. says

    Hello Julian,
    Well, I just read out your article and found that the 1st point about making friends wasn’t being followed by me a year ago.I was simply writing and publishing articles and relying on SEO to get visitors.But then I realized that getting connected with other bloggers is one of the most important things in blogging.By the way,you writing style is impressive.

  20. says

    Hey Julian,

    I agree with the points you have shared and one of the biggest mistake I think newbies commits is relying only on mentors to teach them and not getting into it and trying learning by themselves, I have done this.

    Your very first point is “Not making any friends”, during my journey I have faced many people who have got their small success to their heads and this is the reason they become so egoistic to help others, even to reply them but that doesn’t mean there are not gentle and genuine bloggers but some people are too egoistic. Even Brian Dean replies to his emails (at least I have got reply from him), considering the fact he is too successful and busy.

    The 9th point “Having an ugly design”, this matters a lot, when I was a newbie I had no knowledge about the design and importance of design, it took me 1.5 years to understand and move on to professional design.

    Good to read all these points mentioned here, newbies will definitely get some value out of it.

    Hey Julian,
    The first point refers to me about 4 years ago when I came into the blogosphere, then, I didn’t want to connect with other bloggers I was thinking I could do it all alone, but I can still say that there was a big difference on my blog, blogging life and on social networks when I began to connect. Nice article thanks for sharing, and do have a wonderful day ahead

  22. says

    Hi Julian,

    Very educating piece indeed. As a blogger, one needs to diversify. Although search engine traffic seems to be the best traffic source, however, while trying to get listed on search engines one should try the other traffic sources like the social media. Guest posting and blog commenting are some other strategies that can fetch you loads on targeted traffic as well.

    Awesome post here my friend. Ultra-detailed. I love how you got into the nitty gritty of each step and I found the headline of #6 pretty funny.

    I could definitely relate to the different reasons you’ve shared here. I’ve had my experiences as well. We all started somewhere.

    One thing that I love to start with are my headlines. By using powerful words, I was able to create content that goes viral in terms of sharing and comments. It was there and then I realized the one skill that I had to master, copywriting.

    By reading this post, I was able to list down a couple of things that I should be working harder on. I appreciate you for sharing this.

    You are 100% right. First thing is people don’t have a consistency in blogging. They want to get huge traffic in few days and also want to make hell lot of money in short time.

    Personally for my link building was a big burden for me…

  27. says

    Hi Julian,
    This is the first time I am visiting your blog. First of all, I must say that your blog is designed very clean and looks good, Now, coming to the article you wrote, it’s really good! The points you have mentioned are very appropriate. I feel personally that having a vague mindset often creates blank in the mind. You actually can’t stick to one niche and fail to produce new topic ideas. Blogging should always be focused to one niche.

    I was not involved with fellow bloggers at the start of blogging journey. And I have suffered a lot from it. I wish I have read this post earlier. Nevertheless, now I am quite active among blogging groups. It has really given some good amount of traffic for my blog. It’s not only about the traffic but professional connections always help you on your journey. You can learn more from other experience and try to avoid the similar mistakes.

    Hello

    Interesting and a potentially very useful article.
    I can relate to a lot of this. In turning from a little hobby blog to wanting to make my blog, or A blog for that matter, generate some income I have spent time studying, both on courses and other bloggers, to find the right path.

    Struggling? No. Working through a lot of these issues? Yes, in a planned and controlled manner.

    The one element you leave out is time balance. You cannot do it all at once. It is a matter of taking small steps and measuring the results, looking for growth. Trying to rush in a and make it all work at one hit is likely to fail.

    My own site is not making alot of fortune, but it is growing in the way that I planned, so I am happy.

    @Julian bro. Your blog rocks. Initial days of my blogging were too bad, as no one told me how to generate traffic in real. I happened watch loads of videos for the same, but no go. For the first i have seem someone’s content, which is so true and written to educate audience rather than turning things around. Great post….. Cheers!

    Relying on google for traffic can get you down anytime. I made that mistake in past. I was running few amazon blogs, all traffic was coming from Google. After Fred update, most of them were penalised and I was left with nothing terrified. I would suggest everyone, to build solid social media base along with it.

    Thanks, nice article. 🙂
