With the internet revolution Blogging became increasingly popular among the youth in India, Most of the youth who want to earn online, are very passionate about blogging. But they break down before they even start blogging, thinking that blogging is not for them.
One of the main reasons for this is that there are a lot of unwanted pieces of information floating around in the air about blogging that can be called myths.
So today I am going to write about those dangerous and common myths so that no future blogger make this mistake and learns from these. Those are as follows.
1. Blogging brings easy money in no time
Some answers on QNA sites show blogging as an easy task through which you can earn a lot within a few weeks, reality is far from it.
Many newbies bloggers assume this statement to be true and jump into it and later regret it.
Blogging is certainly the best option but it’s more of a long-term investment and not a short-term money-making scheme. The effort which you put into your blog today will bear fruit after six months. Or a year.
2. You need to post every day
This is a huge misconception that sometimes scares many of us to start a blog.
Some of us who successfully started our blog, are always in a hurry to post every day or more frequently, Hoping it would increase traffic, engagement, and conversions. because of this they sometimes compromise with high-quality content…
Bloggers publishing ones a week with quality being their focus are still easily outranking those publishing every day
I am not denying that some highly competitive niches like News or Review blogs require to post every day or more frequently…
Other niche’s blog which is not more competitive doesn’t require posting every day.
Both People and google love high-quality content so focus on high-quality content.
No worry If it takes a week or two.
3. You have to be on Every Social Media Platform
Reddit, Facebook, Linked-in, Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter- You have to be everywhere at once. No, You don’t.
There are many social media platforms and the no is constantly growing…
However, you don’t need to be on each of them for driving targeted audiences.
unless you are a company that has a team to handle social media.
If you don’t have this, You should try to find out which ones your target audience is using. If a large percentage of your demographic uses one network, that’s the one you have to be on.
4. You need to spend a lot of money to start a blog
This is a myth that I can understand people believing, but it doesn’t necessarily need to be true.
Many new bloggers feel that they are required to pay different expenses like Hosting, Theme, SEO tools, and Plugins subscription to get started.
Which is simply not true. You don’t have to spend on every product.
There are only two things that you should invest in to get started, That is Domain name, and Web Hosting. everything else is optional…
If you have not started a blog yet, Give it a try a good blog will defiantly give you age in a long run…

5. Blogspot.com Subdomain doesn’t rank in the top
It’s not entirely true, the Blogspot.com subdomain does rank for low competitive keywords that have low search volume.
but struggle to rank higher for medium or high competitive keywords.
6. Readers or Audience can be found easily
It’s not easy for a new blogger to get audience or readers easily. It was possible in the initial stage of blogging when blogging was started at that time there are only few numbers of bloggers and good content available.
At that time bloggers don’t need to do publicity or marketing about their blog. But now there are many good Blogger and Best content available in the market.
So, If your blog having a lots of useful information, Interesting information and creative content you have to do marketing or publicity about your blog and to market your blog you can use social media as a medium. Which proved to be as the best medium of publicity. You have to market your blog your content will not be enough to find and build an audience.
These are some of the blogging myths that most newbies fear.
I know there are more myths out there, but I found these most common myths that are being thrown around from years to years.
I hope you will find this post valuable.
