I am not very fond of typical post 10 tips for the 10 mistakes … because most just looking to get spread (I like to see the data in terms of conversions, visiting times, rebound, etc.) and the tips do not add much value. Well, certainly more than one is useful to them, so keep not doing ‘blood’.
But if it is true that some of them you find interesting things in the form of advice, useful web, application, etc. So I’ll try to make a short list as possible and useful tips for beginners bloggers or people who are thinking in creating it.
1. Beat the fear of writing
The first is to break the mental barrier that we all have before you start. You must start by having a clear idea (does not have to be 100% defined), the subject on which you want to write. Once you have that, stop and start now mulling. Not next week or when passing x thing. Enter WordPress, Register your own blog and write the first post. It is free and takes 10 minutes.
You’ll have time to choose the design you like best, not the photo and few other things. All accessory. The important thing is to start writing.
It is normal for the first weeks change the course of the blog, to write post low quality, etc. The good news? As you’ve just started, no one knows you and therefore nobody reads. Therefore, the impact is minimal. It’s time to learn.
2. Quality before quantity
If you have anything you find interesting, you better not write. So:
There are many bloggers who write every day. In my opinion (by pure logic, not from experience), it is impossible to maintain the level of quality day after day.
Write every day has the benefit of staying in the ‘top of mind’ of your readers, but the problem is if you do with positioning you want (type of content and quality, and thus type of audience), and if this will help you achieve your goals.
Especially at the beginning of recommend laying the foundations of your blog posts dealing with issues in depth. Write 4-5 post we call ‘depth charges’, combined with shorter posts.
As time progresses, you will discover your style.
3. Work hard and commit
You keep a blog while you work, have a family, you study, you relate … it is somewhat complicated. You have to carve out time you do not, and this will make you doubt whether it’s worth the effort.
Be patient. Once you have overcome the fear of writing and you have entered into the dynamic, it is a matter of working hard. Looking towards your goal and build the path that will lead to the. You will see that before you know it you will start to happen very positive things.
4. Do not pretend to be what you are not
Your blog is a reflection of your knowledge and experiences (personal and professional).
Some posts the write with certainty that they are correct, others will be an idea that is taking shape, but what should never be is something that does not reflect your reality.
Although the post is based on the content of a third party always tries to contribute your opinion, to give your personal touch.

Remember two things:
“You take before a liar than a lame” and
Everything you post on the Internet is part of your reputation.
That is to say:
If you pretend to be something you’re not, you’re sure to catch insurance.
Everything you post, positive or negative, will be part of the image that others have of you, so try to tilt the balance, and much, toward the positive.
5. Try to be humble
Measure your success by the positive things that happen to you and try not to pay too much attention to your ego.
Social networks and blogs are full of bright lights in the form of fans, traffic, number shares of your posts, number of subscribers, number …
It is normal that at times you pay attention and you love it. It happens to all.
The important thing is that this is not the way you measure the success of your blog. This will depend on whether it meets the targets set: leads, collaboration proposals … or just enjoy writing.
