Mistake 2: Don't Copy
Directly related to being original is the issue of not copying. Being original with your content increases your reader's trust in you. Your readers will soon grow to know, appreciate, and expect your writing style. Publish your article when it is somewhere between good and great. Write a unique content.

Mistake 3: Consider Your Writing Style
If you're used to writing in a technical, academic, or formal way, blog writing might come as a bit of a shock. Blog writing style tends to be more conversational, peppered with a lot of your own opinion (however outrageous!), and above all, it needs to be interesting. The writing style best suited for you will come down to the content of your blog and its likely readership. Clearly, a blog that is more technical in nature can carry more technical writing but even then, your readers will want you to break down the latest techno-whizz gadget to terms that they can understand and digest quickly.

Mistake 4: Only Talking About Company, Products And Services
Your end goal might be to make money, but you first need to earn the trust of your potential customers. Give them as much free value as you can and become the authority in their eyes. They will naturally pick you when they are ready to buy.

Mistake 5: Not Responding To Blog Comments
Respond to all your blog comments thoroughly. Your readers will know you care about them and it builds both trust and loyalty. You in turn, will better understanding their questions and needs so you can adapt their your products and content accordingly.

Mistake 6: Not Promoting Your Blog Content 
Write it and they come? Not if you are new and unknown. As a beginning blogger spend at least four times more of your time promoting your content than writing it.

Mistake 7: Encourage others to guest post on your blog
Guest posting is an excellent means for getting well-known, quality bloggers to increase the profile of your blog. Offer guest posts in return, so as to get your blog's link into other people's blogs.
Guest posts increase variety for your readers. And if you get well-known bloggers on your blog, this will help your readers to connect you with the guest poster, which will increase your profile.

Mistake 8:  Spread The Word About Your Blog And New Posts
Use today's social media to the max. There are many platforms to choose from. Use one, or preferably, many of them. Twitter, Facebook, Digg, and Tumblr are just a few.
Take time to visit other blogger's blogs and leave comments with your name and link in them. Get known as someone who cares about what other bloggers are saying and creating, and they'll repay the favor.

Mistake 9: You Concentrate Your Analytics On Immediate Traffic
Both beginner bloggers and advanced bloggers are guilty of this blogging mistake. If you concentrate your analysis on immediate traffic (traffic from email subscribers, RSS feeds, and social shares), then it's going to be hard to prove the enduring value of your blog. After all, the half-life for those sources is very brief -- usually a day or two. When marketers who are just starting their business blogs see that their blog posts aren't generating any new traffic after a few days, many of them get frustrated. They think their blog is failing, and they end up abandoning it prematurely.

Mistake 10: Growing Subscribers
Once you start blogging, it's easy to forget that blogging isn't just about getting new visitors to your blog. One of the biggest benefits of blogging is that it helps you steadily grow an email list of subscribers you can share your new content with. Each time you publish a new blog post, your subscribers will give you that initial surge of traffic -- which, in turn, will propel those posts' long-term success. The key to getting significant business results (traffic, leads, and eventually customers) all starts with growing subscribers.
