Why Your Blog Sucks

You heard that you can make some fast and easy money with a blog... but no one even goes to it... heres what might be wrong.


1. Your content is ripped off of other sites. Theres no unique or original content. No one wants to read a blog that just puts together a bunch of articles from other sites.

2. Your content is boring. Some people have success with personal blogs about their life, however, if your life sucks and you blog about your life, chances are your blog sucks. Choose a topic that you know a lot about and is interesting for people to read about.

3. Your layout is horrible. There are ads overlapping each other and images flashing everywhere. Its hard to find where the actual content is. The background color shouldn't be too bright and the text should be big enough to be readable but small enough to fit enough text.

4. No one knows about your blog. You need to email some friends about your blog and promote it. Don't start spamming it everywhere, though.

5. You don't update often. Once a week is not often enough. People expect blogs to be updated frequently and be on top of the news.

6. You're writing for the wrong audience. If your blog is about engineering, you might not want to use slang terms and simple sentences. On the other hand, if your topic is about your personal life, you might want to make it easy to read and understand.

7. You make up stories. At first you might attract a bunch of attention but then people find out your story isn't credible by any trustworthy sources. You need to have sources that don't exaggerate facts. Your source should not be what some random guy on posted on his blog.

8. You don't respond to your readers. Your loyal readers give valuable feedback about your blog that you can use to make it better. Don't have the mindset of my blog my rules. After all, the blog was created for your readers not you.

9. You don't spend enough time on your blog. A blog needs to be regularly maintained. Not just posting regularly. You also want to change around the design or layout once in a while so that readers see that your blog is fresh and innovative.

10. You don't have passion for your blog. Some people just make a blog because they had a sudden urge to make one, but then they lose interest and only update to make money off of blogging. Readers will detect when your blog no longer has that spark that makes it unique. The key to keeping the passion for your blog is to pick a interesting topic to begin with that you enjoy. If your topic right now is something that you have no interest in, change it before its too late.

Thanks for reading this post and I hope that this helps you in creating a successful blog, or at least one that doesn't suck.

Hi Your Blog is Terriffic!

As a long time Advertising Executive and Online Marketing person I value information and ideas that make money.

I hate spam and sites with poor Advertising pitches that do not convert to sales and profit opportunities.

As a Savvy Marketer and person interested in home business concepts i have a website you may be interested in.
My Affiliate sales results from the site have exceded my wildest imaginings and the site converts incredibly.

If you are not interested i still love your Blog and will have a closer look at it now and consider any opportunities you are displaying.

The link to the site is blow

www.type-at-home.com/coupon/3671

I would love your feedback on this Site or any opportunities that you wish to propose to me.
I look at hundreds of online opportunities and really value a diverse portfolio of offers to put infront of my clients and to promote myself.
