Joining and sharing as much as I can so much so that I do not remember a lot of my sign ons and passwords to each site!
Think the biggest mistake I have made (and apparently still make) is telling it how it is. People don't seem to like the truth, for whatever reason... Oh I know. Denial! But yea. It's killed my readership but I still do it :P

The nature of blogging is to speak in your own voice...the best advice I ever got from another professional blogger was to be as opinionated as possible and find my voice...."not everyone will love it but some will and those fans that find you, will be the ones that stay, the ones who share & support your work and that's why you write"

 

I never looked back after that....so speak your mind and never stop & the people that come back will come back because they love the sound of your voice....probably because it sounds like their own!

When I first started I was all over the place with my posts, no specific focus. I think it helps to have focus and make what you write about matter to you.

My biggest mistake so far was not thoroughly looking into other domains that might be similar to my own. When I finally decided, after sooo much thought, that Rosie Girl Dreams was the title for my blog, I wish I'd thought about the ramifications of the simple word 'girl' in it. I wonder still if that's why my blog was hacked. I know it was random and things can be random in the land of internet, but after the fact I realized that the word 'girl' was/is associated with so much porn on the web. Duh. Girl. So, I deleted it and am now Rosie Dreams and my spam has decreased by a ton, I've gotten better about back-ups and protection systems...and I'm still trying to figure out how to change my address everywhere it was already linked to on the web.
When I first started blogging I didn't think anyone who knew me would read my blog, and I used their real names… Big mistake.

Fantastically great post!   Perceptive yet entertaining as well.  Thanks.

I just started blogging just as an outlet: I signed up with blogger and now I read all this about it being connected to my personal FB page... :(
I need to comment in other sites more, and get more personally.
Definitely quitting. I wish I had better post planning skills back then.

Waiting three years while I built a stockpile of archived content for a content-rich blog, until I finally set up the google friend connect, the facebook page, the twitter account and started my stat counter.

 

All my stats and so on would be MUCH higher if I'd started it at first, but I wanted so much to make a great first impression, that I thought it best to wait until I practically had a novel's worth of posts in.

I am a new blogger and I'm sure I've made plenty of mistakes.  However I have a question for those of you who listed using blogger instead of wordpress in the beginning.  I looked into wordpress but how do you make money with wordpress if you can't use adsense or any advertising on your blog?  That is my biggest concern.  I would really appreciate any feedback.
