10 Common Blog Writing Mistakes (Infographic)

10 Common Blog Writing Mistakes (Infographic) | Personal Branding Using Scoopit | Scoop.it
Ever wondered what the most common grammar mistakes are that bloggers make? Run-on sentences, punctuation, or maybe use of wrong tenses? This infographic highlights common blog post writing errors and blogging facts.

Via Lauren Moss, Martina Friesenbichler
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

I love the 92% of companies who blog multiple times a day have acquired a customer from their blog stat. You might wonder how that could work. How can a company blog multiple times a day?

Shorten up your blog posts and widen your content curation and creation path and creating multiple post a day is possible. Each post has a unique URL so they shouldn't step on each other too badly (and that is another good reason to create a wide swath of content).

Brain Pickings is a great example of the power of intense blogging for long periods. Maria Popova's blog has almost 11,000 pages in Google, a PageRank of 7 and almost 11,000 inbound links. Smart content distributed across a wide swath with multiple posts a day can create a powerful SEO position.

My blog writing tips:

* Write in present tense verbs (sounds FAST).
* Short sentences without connections (and, but, so hurt more than they help online).

* Bullet points are good, great visual support is better.
* Match written content to visual support.

* Avoid "stop words" like "him, her, it, they".

* Be specific (use keywords whenever possible).
* Don't sweat grammar but watch the spelling.
