Where should you start?
If you are planning to build a business you should start with a solid business plan. If this sounds like more then you bargained for you are probably not going to make much money with your blog… just being straight with ya!
There are many aspects of a solid business plan but a good place to start is with a mission statement.

Unfornately, in the online business world that is the motivation for many new businesses and a big part of why so many fail. Sure monitary goals are important and helpful but that cannot be the purpose of your business. Creating a value for your audience is what your purpose has to focus on.
Create a Value
I mentioned creating a value for your audience and in order to accomplish that you have to know who your audience is, first and foremost. Once you know who your audience is you need to spend some time getting to know them.
- What are their interests and motivations – what are they in need of?
- What do you have to offer as it relates to the above?
- Why is what you have to offer special or different?
- How do you appeal to their needs?
- How do you make it easy for them?
- Where is and What is the value?
- What is going to keep them coming back?
The thing you need to keep in mind is that you need to be sincere about these things, you cannot try to accomplish your mission while pulling at their purse strings. You know how easy it is for you to feel, when someone is being FAKE with you? It is just as easy for your audience on the blog you write. You have probably experienced it.

Mistakes Bloggers Make with Content Creation
Writing for search engines instead of human audiences.
It is very common to find blog post that are written with the sole purpose of trying to give the search bots what the author thinks will get his or her content ranked well. But that is not what people want to read. Nobody is searching the web for content because they want to read something “stuffed” with an akward keyword phrase.
Writing is stiff and uncomfortable for the reader or audience.
You have to write your blog the way you would talk to someone. Writing a blog post is usually not the best place to use a word for the first time in your life, so don’t try to expand your vocabulary in order to sell something.
Writing in huge “sea of text” paragraphs.
You should use smaller paragragh and leave “white space” to make your posts more comfortable to the eye. Break out important point sentences and let them stand alone for emphasis. Use bold text and H tags, as well.
Using too few images in the post or page.
It is important to use properly formatted images and to use enough of them to make your content visual. People are general visual people and like the engagement that is created by good images.
Writing or design with your focus on the MONEY!
Too many ads are a huge turn off for most readers. Auto start music and videos are down right aggravating and don’t place ads for stuff that is in no way relevant to the post or blog topic.
