8 Top Blogging Mistakes Every Newbie Makes
1. Writing inconsistently

For this purpose, you can use many tricks to get trending topics and ideas for your blog.
I myself prefer Google trends for writing on topics that are trending.
Although you can also get topics for your blog by using google search. As you search for a keyword, google always shows related search queries at the end of the page.

So, email marketing could help you to get a greater response from your audience than any other marketing measure.
You can make email marketing easy by using plugins like optinmonster and WP Notification Bar to make your blog subscription easy for the audience and helps in increasing conversion rate.
Optinmonster helps to add your email box buttons in sidebars, floating footer buttons, and full-page forms.

3. Only Relying On Organic Traffic
So, how can you think of getting natural visitors to your blog post as there are many big players in the game?

So you should use other platforms and social apps to get traffic to your blog.

However, if your blog post gets traffic from these platforms, your blog will automatically start getting organic traffic.
