I am new and still learning, so I am sure I am making many mistakes but not sure what they are yet...
I think the biggest mistake that I have made as a blogger is spreading myself to thin. I am currently eating, sleeping and breathing blogging which I think has taken away from the very thing that I blog about, being a mom. I feel like I have devoted so much time to this venture that I have very little time to anything else. I know that to become successful I have to devote time to it especially since it is new. My hard work has really paid off but I have to find the time to balance all of my responsibilities with updating my blog.

When it comes to blogging, there is no such things as mistakes!! It's your blog. I am not one to hold back, I am honest and forward. It is my blog :P

I think if we never admit we've made a mistake, we are not as open to improving. Not saying one should beat oneself up about them, but we all make mistakes, however minor, and having a sense of humor about them is, I think, important.
I just do not understand how we make mistakes when we are voicing ourselves. We shouldn't pretend to be perfect in our blogs when we are not. Voice reality and just be ourselves. We may offend people along the way, but God didn't make us all the same, so there is guaranteed a hand full of people out there that will not like anything said on our blogs. There is no such things as mistakes, just things that happened for a reason that we learn from. A saying I live by... Everything happens for a reason. Don't dwell on the bad. Prosper on the success that came after!

I completely disagree, but that's the cool thing about the world; we're all different. :-)

The world would be a boring place if everyone was the same!

I take on too many reviews all the time and then feel really stressed out. I am now trying to remind myself only to take opps that are relevant and that my readers will be interested in.
Wow - some great tips on here... what a great thread. I love learning from others' experiences.

I'm new to the blogging world. All the same, I think one of my biggest mistakes was writing and posting too much all at once. I've learned to save my posts for "dry spells".
My biggest mistake: Jokingly offering up my mother-in-law as a giveaway. OK, I was being passive-aggressive. I didn't think she'd find out. But my sister-in-law told her and she was ticked. Worse part: Now I'll never be able to give her away on my blog.
not going directly to Wordpress. Now it's just a matter of a financial impact to make the switch properly and professionally.blogger has been great but I really think Wordpress would take us to where we've been trying to go for months.
assuming people would just.....find me on the web. Yeah, right!

Also, I agree with the long breaks one. People are well, busy and understand life's pauses.
