My #1 Blogging Mistake
My biggest blogging mistake was not building an email list throughout the years. It sucks. And it almost drove me out of business in 2012/2013.
What I have learned: search ranking and social media buzz can come and go. But email is always here to stay. Why? Because it allows you to engage and communicate with your audience directly whenever you want. Engagement and communication – are the keys to your online success.
I am still not building a good email list right now. But at least I have started and am learning all that I could.
Curious about how others. I conducted an online survey via HARO and interviewed other bloggers about their mistakes and things they wish to know before starting their own blog. And I've hand-picked and published some of the best answers here: http://www.webhostingsecretrevealed.net/blog/blogging-tips/things-we-wish-we-knew-before-starting-our-first-blog/ Some of the stories are common; and some total out of my imagination.
