Whether we like it or not, there is a learning curve to mom blogging.  No one's perfect and that means sometimes we make mistakes. What is the biggest mistake you've ever made as a blogger?

I haven't tried blogging using Wordpress yet. Although i am very interested with blogging but i haven't got the time to update my blog regularly. I planned to update it regularly as much as possible.

I started on Wordpress and I'm glad I did. I used to use blogger for other blogs I wanted private, but if you want a blog to be known, Wordpress is the way to go.

 

I don't regret anything as I *try* to remain somewhat anonymous for my child, which is why I don't write down her name in the blog, in case she's older and googles her name and sees a blog about how her butt had a nasty rash ;)

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.
