New Blog Series: Blogging Myths

So many readers seemed to enjoy my last series, Commenting 101, that I decided to try another weekly series! I think that there can sometimes be misconceptions about blogging, whether they come from bloggers themselves or from readers.

My new series is called Blogging Myths, and we'll be discussing some of the inaccuracies that can pop up and confront you when you blog.

I'll be compiling the link for each post in the series here so that readers (old and new!) can refer back to this post when checking out the blog:

Myth #1If You Blog It, They Will Come
Myth #2: Blogging is an Easy Money Maker
Myth #3The Words Aren't Important
Myth #4: Any Old Photo Will Do
Myth #5Blog Design Doesn't Matter
Myth #6: Everyone Loves Controversy
Myth #7Snarky Anonymous Comments are Okay
Myth #8Linking Back Isn't a Big Deal
Myth #9: "Big" Bloggers Are So Cliquey
Myth #10: Blogging is Never a Distraction
Series Wrap-Up and Blogging Resources

  1. How about the myth that blogging is easy...I've had so many friends start a blog. After 3-4 posts they give up. It's HARD finding something to write about over and over again!

  3. I loved the Commenting 101 series and found it to be so helpful in pointing out things I had never even thought of in leaving and responding to comments.

    Can't wait for the myths...you are adding all sorts of intrigue this time with the teaser post! :)

  4. I agree with the myth that it's easy. Or that you'll start out right away and make money from it. :)

  12. It's *not* easy - I can come up with a lot of ideas, but I just get tired, or something fails, or I find out somebody else did it "yesterday," or I feel guilty that I'm not spending enough time with my family. But honestly, I still love it. :)

  14. Can't wait to follow along.

    I'm guessing that Myth #1 has something to do with MONEY!!! And that you can get rich by blogging (and btw, if you figure out how, let me know - haha)

  22. Just read Myth #1. This info is so useful to me as a new blogger. I goofed on the day of the week you were doing this in my "Help for New Bloggers" post. I have corrected it. The links you provided were great, too. Can't wait for Myth #2.

  24. It is nice to have you write a series about the myths surrounding blogging. I was also contemplating to write a series with the same theme in mind. I wrote a long article with explanation to all the myths I came around in relation to blogging. Here is the article Top 10 Blogging Myths that bloggers fall for.

I love to hear your feedback! Please feel free to leave comments...just don't send me spam asking me to buy stuff off your website! I've got three kids and no money to purchase your magic weight-loss pill or bust enhancement, or whatever else you might be selling. Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you! :)
