what not to do as a professional blogger

ProBlogger posted a list of things to do if you don’t want to be successful as a professional blogger. “9 Ways to Screw Up Your Professional Blog” concentrates on those bloggers who expect to make money directly from their blogs, either in affiliate earnings or advertising. Here’s the shortlist:

  1. Ignore Ad Network Rules
  2. Make Big Claims that Won’t Follow Through on
  3. Start and Give up On Blog Projects As Quickly As Possible
  4. Game Google
  5. Become Obsessed with One element of Blogging and Ignore the Rest
  6. Hide Agendas and Conflicts of Interests from your Readership
  7. Quit Your Job and Go Pro Now!
  8. Plagiarize, Steal and Give as Little Credit to Others as Possible
  9. Blend In With the Crowd

All very good don’t-dos… or rather, very bad things and you must avoid. 🙂
