10 Worst Beginner Blogger Bloopers

You were not all born to be Shakespearean writers, believe it or not! But if you are writing for yourself, you must be effective enough to be liked and understood.

Yesterday I wrote about Keywords and their necessity. Keywords tie into most every part of your online marketing strategy and are very important. You need keywords to bind your brand together and get folks to notice that you are more than a real estate agent, broker or company. You are a tremendous, service concious, proactive and proficient agent. You need to let people find you online before they can figure that out and the keyword planning tools I spoke about yesterday is a great start.

Real Estate Agent stressed out from all the work she has to do including social media marketing and blogging.So today, let's talk about the 10 Worst Beginner Blogger Bloopers

  1. Using the wrong content ideas. I might be running crazy today and thinking about topics, but once I am still long enough to review them, I realize that they don't all matter to my readers and are, therefore, not good content ideas!
  2. You are writing like your posts are a white paper or thesis. How are you ever going to connect if people think your writing is dull and lifeless? Me? I'm fun. Funny. I make fun of myself. I make dull info more readable because I want you to come back. I want you to read my posts! Let loose a little and write conversationally. 
  3. Your Topic is too broad. You wouldn't ever get done writing a post if you wrote about "A - Z Information That You Need to Know to Sell Your House." After all, YOU are the one who is supposed to know this and to be able to help your clients. Simplify the topics to How to Stage for Showing, or Getting Financing. 
  4. Not using statistics or not using them properly. Which is the better statement:

Blogging Mistakes and Bloopers for Real Estate.I think you would agree that the second statement not only gives you a true stat, but also gives the source.

  1. Not writing original content. This is one of the biggest no-no's in any type of writing. First of all, it's illegal, (if it infringes an author's intellectual property rights, including copyright or trademark.- wikipedia) secondly, it may not even apply to your target audience and if Google catches it, your site could be penalized. Enough bad reasons to reconsider pasting that blog post, hey?

So I am finding that this 10 Worst Beginner Blogger Bloopers post is getting rather lengthy. So keeping your time in mind, I will revisit Bloopers 6 - 10 tomorrow! Think about these bloopers. Have you ever made any of them? Is there anything specific that you can do to be more aware of them within your writing?

Until tomorrow....Another Day, Another Blog

And don't forget:  "If it doesn't make you money, you should be delegating it!"

Those are real important errors.  I think lack of original content and boring content are the two worst offenses!

I find writing academic papers come naturally to me, but writing anything a real person would choose to read is a struggle.  Thanks for writing this!

Kathy, I was most interested in the CRT survey re: Facebook. I have been using it and my hubby was saying I shouldn't. Thanks for the "stat" to let him know that I am doing the right thing as one of my MANY internet avenues for my business.

Dear Kathy,

Yes, I can see, how the white paper blog might be great for putting the intended readers to sleep. That may not be, what we want to be known for.

Thanks for the advice! My blog is about anything and everything to do in my area Kathy. I do need more markt reports to make the phone ring because they really have that impact. Saw this on Kathy Streib.s weekly Ah-Ha moment post!

Good points.  Or getting too personal in trying to be human.  It's a fine line between being personable and TMI.
