Hundreds if not thousands of blogs are launched everyday including those on all the free blogging sites like Wordpress and blogger. But how many of them are able to garner a list of readers who visit them regularly or subscribe to their posts through RSS or email. Well the answer to this question will be, only a fraction of them do. Only a fraction of all blogs launched and running have subscribers in thousands. And so is the rate of success of blogs. So, to be successful at blogging, we need to avoid falling in the trap of these following 5 things.
The blog is a result of an impulsive reaction to what we come across. And this is one the reason behind the start of more than 90% of blogs. And most of the blogs thus started go down as fast as they had propped up. I would term such a situation as an Impulsive Blogging Disorder. —-
So, to become successful at blogging continuous blogging is a must. There must be consistency in the blog posts and one should avoid the tendency to write and article on impulse if their blog is not a news opinion blog. And if you are stuck in such a cycle and want to come out of this then the best way is to make a blogging schedule and stick to it. Please comment if you find this article useful.

You know that you are doing most of the things correct as advised by still do not get the desired results. Why could that be? Could it not be better if you knew in advance the things that could drive you to such a situation?
