Absolutely the most common criticism is about the standard of English used on some blogs.
Okay, we’re not all the best spellers, the best at grammar or aware of the finer points of punctuation, but if you can’t get at the very least an acceptable standard you are not going to have a well-attended blog, and you most likely are not going to be making lots of money from any products you produce.
Seriously consider getting someone else to look over your work if you know you are not up to it.
This can be a friend or family member, providing their English is good, or you can outsource this by paying someone else to edit for you.
It makes a huge difference, so get it right from the start and you will be okay.
Don’t load your blog with nonsense that no-one else will be able to follow. If you can’t think of anything to write, then come back to it another day.
There is an inclination sometimes just to put anything on there, rather than nothing.
This will not do you any good in the long run.
Do not let your text over run its area on your blog.
Time and again blogs have text bleeding from one sidebar into another, or floating over two separately coloured areas.
This looks messy, so check everything and make sure this isn’t happening to your blog.
Do not try to sell your readers something in every post.
By all means bring to their attention something you feel is relevant or pertinent to your topic, but your readers will soon desert you if you try to sell to them all the time.
Do not leave derogatory or critical comments on other people’s blogs.
If you can’t say something constructive or relevant, then say nothing.
