Christians are being taught on how to be a better person and according to their doctrine, there are seven deadly sins that must be avoided. Although this post is not about religion, it is interesting to learn that these sins can also be applicable to blogging. One might think that this post seems to be offensive, but its intention is pure and clean. I think this is one of the best ways to remind every blogger on how to avoid their blogs to die. Here they are.
This is not limited to sexual addiction and adultery. As bloggers, we should not also be involved in scams just to win visitors and make money on-line. It takes a lot of effort to gain a decent traffic and subscribers but it is the way it should be. In addition, do not put anything in your blog that should not be there. Simplicity attracts more readers.
Do not eat more than what you cannot take. Although joining social sites can help a lot to promote our blogs, join only what you can handle. Link building can help our blogs to be popular to search engines, but exchanging links to blogs not common to your niche is useless. If you are not checking them properly, it will also affect your PR.
This is very much applicable to forum posting and leaving comments on blogs. We must remember that we are not the only ones who need exposure. Although it is free promotion on our part, abusing it will annoy others and you will suffer the consequences. You must learn the art of communication to invite readers to your blog. If you share useful tips, you will be acknowledged.
While we must not stop improving our blogs, discontentment may also be harmful. Frequent changing of blog theme and topic will confuse your readers. On the other hand, it is not also right to be lazy in posting. We must always be willing to give a helping hand to fellow bloggers who ask for advice, especially to newbies. Always maintain a good reputation to others.
Blogging is not for impatient people, as well as those who cannot control their temper. Avoid engaging in useless debates just to prove your point. If you are right, you do not need to push it. In addition, never use foul words that can offend others. The truth will surely come out later. We must project a good image to increase our readership. Patience pays off.
Self-centered people do not have a place in blogging. Note that successful blogs were not made overnight so do not be envious if they are more popular than yours. Instead of comparing yourself to top bloggers, study them and learn from their strategies. Never copy their posts and post them on your blogs just to get the credit. Every blogger is unique.
This is the deadliest sin a blogger could commit. Do not act as if you are the best blogger who thinks he already knows everything. Be humble in your posts even if you are the expert on the matter. Do not be too proud about success in blogging just to impress your readers. Instead, thank those who visit you. Humility pays off in the long run.
The wages of sin is death.
