- | 88 Aha! comments | Posted in category: Blogging & Making Money

Blogging problem upset blogger

This is yet another “share your problems and solutions” (SYPS) post. This time, it’s the blogging problems that we’ll share, discuss, and seek solutions to.

If you’re a blogger, then you’re likely to face blogging problems. In fact, every aspect of life too has problems, isn’t it?

However, every problem has a solution, and finding it depends on your attitude, qualities, and skills, and of course, awareness.

If you’re determined and hopeful, you’re more likely to find the solution to your problems.

Similarly, when you face problems blogging – you need to first accept the problem, understand it, have patience, make efforts, and take help from other bloggers.

Remember, this too shall pass. No problem can hold its ground if you’re determined to root it out by using the right ways.

The Aha!NOW blog community is there to help out. You need to resolve your blogging issues to make your blog successful.

I suggest that you share your blogging problems with all other bloggers and that will have a multi-purpose end result:

1) Probably you’ll get to know that you’re not alone and others too face the same problem. This will give you hope that your problem will get solved.

2) Others who have faced similar blogging problems will tell you what they did to resolve them. Probably doing the same, you too can solve the problems you face.

3) All other bloggers will become aware of such problems, and they can be on guard and adopt preventive measures so as not to suffer from the same problems. This way you’ll be helping other bloggers.

4) It may so happen that what you considered a problem was actually a mistake that you were making. Other bloggers might point that out to you, and you can bring happiness back to your blogging.

I have also come across blogging problems, which I think can be categorized into different heads.

Types of Blogging Problems

Categorization and classification help us understand things better. It will also help you define your problem and seek solutions.

I find that there are 8 types of blogging problems that any blogger can face. However, there might be many more, so feel free to mention them in the comments when you share your problems.

Most bloggers face conceptual, design, ethical, financial, legal, marketing, search traffic, and technical related problems.

Conceptual Blogging Problems

Blogging starts with a concept or an idea. The very first problem that a blogger faces is deciding the blog niche.

I must confess, I had this problem, which continued for a long time in my blogging journey.

It was only recently when my lovely blog readers affirmed through the blog readership survey, that they liked my blog as it is and wanted me to keep it multi-niche!

Sometimes the trouble isn’t only about deciding the niche of your blog, because you many a times also struggle with post ideas. Don’t you?

You just can’t make out what to write next, and if that happens, you just write anything and your content quality suffers.

My friend Theodore wrote a post on this issue. I believe a blog plan helps you resolve this issue.

This year, when I wrote my post on life plan, I also made my blog plan. It gave me a direction, guidance, and helped me mark out my post dates as well as post topics schedule in advance.

Planning is crucial for your blog’s success, and if you don’t do that, then your blog could be in a pool of problems.

If you’ve any blog problems related to planning, then share it – and the ever helping readers of Aha!NOW might give you the solutions that you need. 🙂

Design Blogging Problems

Even if your content is good, it helps if your blog looks good too, isn’t it? Though many do not see an unattractive blog as a blogging problem, but it affects your blog in many ways.

It’s not only the readers but also Google that wants your blog to be user-friendly in terms of layout, colors, navigation, images, and fonts, which are all aspects of design.

You may not know how to design your blog properly. However, you can seek help from experts like my friend Angela, who is a website designer.

I think it’s good if you let your blog be easy on the eyes of the readers. It should not be congested, rather have nicely spaced out content and a feel good factor. 🙂

I think some of the things you should do to provide the readers a better experience on your blog are:

● Not confuse the reader with a flood of categories!

● Not fill up your blog with Ads, especially in the above the fold area. Google might penalize you, as it recently rolled a specific update just for that.

● Have more content in the above the fold area and have more text than the html code.

● Not have fonts that are too small or too large – keep them the usual ones you read online.

There could be several other factors and tips that need your attention, if you’re facing design problems on your blog.

A poor blog design can affect your search rankings, duration of the visitor’s stay on the blog, bounce rate, and even conversions.

Do you have any blogging problem related to the design of your blog? If yes, then share them in the comments and seek honest feedback!

Ethical Blogging Problems

What is right and what is wrong? This is a question that bloggers should ask themselves.

You create your image by the things you do, and the image you create among fellow bloggers is something you need to care about.

Some unethical ways I know of are –

● Copying the content or plagiarism.

● Adding the affiliate or third party links where they are not supposed to.

● Writing biased and manipulated sponsored posts and reviews.

● Spamming the post or comments with irrelevant link.

● Commenting just for backlinks by leaving 1 liner comments.

There can be many other examples. These are some blogging problems that the blogger needs to be aware of it, realize its harmful effect on the blog, and stop such practices.

Remember, you can’t fool people all the time. Especially when it comes to Google –if you wish to rise in ranks and revenue, just be original.

Always play by the rules. I expect my guest bloggers to follow my guest blogging rules to the “T”, and I too would do that anywhere I guest post.

Do you have any doubt whether what you want to do is ethical or not?

I read a post that gives a 10-point guide to ethical blogging. What are your thoughts on blogging ethics? To what extent would you go to promote your blog?

Shoot out your questions and let the bloggers give you their opinions.

Financial Blogging Problems

You want to start blogging or are already blogging and you feel the finances are low – now, that’s a major problem. I’m sure most of you can relate to that.

But hey! If you can’t raise the capital, you can choose the cheaper or free ways to blog until you make some money.

If you really want to have a good blog for your readers, then it does cost money. There’s no end to what all you can invest on, unless you decide to go the frugal and minimalistic way like Leo Babauta!

You can have the best web host, best plugins, premium themes, paid services, and most effective email marketing software etc.

But if funds are an issue presently – you need to adjust and make do with what you’ve and your present financial resources and conditions.

Similarly, as mentioned earlier, don’t try to fill your blog with ads just because you think you’ll make a lot of money this way.

Such a plan may backfire. Even the experts say that having fewer ads will get you more clicks, and it’s definitely not more the merrier case.

Did your blog get rejected by Adsense? Well, you still have a chance and all is not lost.

Making money blogging online is an art and a skill that you need to learn and it’s not a problem doing so. My friend Enstine wrote a guest post for me, and he can guide you too.

Tell us your financial blogging problems, maybe we can help out with some fresh ideas!

Legal Blogging Problems

Blogging is fun, but this can even put you in trouble if you’re not careful and not aware of the legal problems of blogging.

Practicing wrong techniques and implementing illegal ways to manipulate search engines will land you in trouble. Here are some examples:

● Some bloggers do not credit the images they use on their blog.

● Some even go to the extent to use entire posts that they copy from the blogs.

I see it as an offence when I find that people don’t follow my copyright guidelines.

In such cases, I’ve a right to complain to Google or other search engines. Remember, you can be penalized by Google for this.

Similarly, companies can sue you for illegally using their products or property. Besides giving credit and having a copyright policy advertised on your blog, you should also have the following:

● Have a disclaimer on your blog when you give any advice or have guest posts. It’s more important if you‘ve a medical or health related blog.

● Some European countries require you to let visitors know if you use cookies and other tracking systems. You should’ve a privacy policy as well on your blog.

I have a couple of posts that give examples and tips for legal issues, here and here. Hope they help.

Be very careful of the legal aspects and implications of whatever you do on your blog. Failure to comply with legal conditions will turn your blogging pleasure into blogging problems.

Did you ever face any legal problems while blogging? Share your experiences and questions.

Marketing Blogging Problems

Conceptualizing a blog is not easy, making a good blog is bit difficult, creating great content is even a harder task, but when it comes to promoting your blog – it almost seems like an impossible task, isn’t it? I can see you all nodding there 🙂

Perhaps reading my recent guest post on blog promotion on Jane Sheeba’s, the way I do it, might help you.

I know many bloggers, who feel that blog marketing is the biggest blogging problem that they face because it has become so diverse now.

Here are some of the blog marketing or promotion woes:

● The number of social platforms are increasing every year, but not the time that you’ve in your hand!

● Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ were enough to take your breath away. Oh, did I forget Pinterest and LinkedIn!

● But then you’ve the social bookmarking and sharing sites too like Stumble Upon, Digg, Reddit, Blog Engage, Biz Sugar, Klinkk, Do Splash, Kingged, and so on.

● Twitter has its own entourage in the form of Triberr, JustRetweet, Tweet Low, and others.

I must say that with regards to social marketing of your blog, it’s more the merrier. But what all can you possibly do in the little time you have in a day!!

There’s more – blog commenting, which for me takes most of my time. How about you? You need to reply to the comment on your own blog, and visit other blogs to comment as well.

Did you say you don’t get comment on your blog?

My friend Babanature wrote a post recently on this issue and what you can do about it. Even I wrote a guest post on blog commenting some time back that may help you.

Too much to do is also a problem, because it becomes difficult to manage. Do you’ve such blogging problems regarding promotion of your blog?

Are you confused about which marketing strategy to follow or how to go about it? Well, just ask – and we’d help you out. 🙂

Search Engine Blogging Problems

Getting organic search traffic is a BIG problem for most of the bloggers. How do you get high search engine ranking positions if you can’t use keywords?

Is SEO dead? Do we need keywords just as we did earlier? What’s the latest on SEO and search engine rankings?

● Well, who said you can’t use keywords. It’s just that you need to pick the seed keywords and grow a tail to it, like you sprout a gram or seed.

● Make efforts to collect other phrases that have similar meaning, and use them in the post that totally revolves around the seed keyword. You’ve to adopt the semantic approach now.

There’s more to optimizing your post for search engines, but you can just write great content and forget about the SEO.

I get about 35% organic traffic, and I don’t know much about SEO!

However, you can still ask your query and some expert may generously give you the tips, though different people have their own opinion in matters of SEO.

But organic traffic is strong and if you can’t tap it, you’ve a problem. Did you say you don’t get enough traffic on your blog?

Well, voice it out here and someone will help you out with useful suggestions.

Technical Blogging Problems

Technical problems that a blogger faces are wide and galore. You can have problems with:

● plugins

● codes, CSS, HTML

● web hosts

And all that technical stuff on your blog. I honestly DREAD those!

Sometimes the technical blogging problems are grave and beyond your control that some of my blogging friends recently faced. When your webhosts start giving you problems, you got nowhere to run.

Though my webhost is good for me, I did have my share of problems when my CPU resources and processes increased beyond limits and my site just vanished from the screen.

You might even make silly typing mistakes while writing or copying php, html, or css codes and find that your blog now only shows a line of code error and nothing else!

One of my biggest blogging problems is how to reduce the load times of my blog. As Google considers this as one of the ranking aspects, every blogger needs to worry about the speed factor.

What technical problems do you face while blogging? When you’ve them, you’re just frustrated and mad. But then who do you ask or call?

Share it all here!

    Hi Harleena,
    This post is legendary, I consider content creation as a problem most blogger face too. Its becoming seemingly difficult to create quality content on daily basis.

    Most blog post are either spunned content or washed and rinsed ideas.

    Thanks for sharing this.

    Hi Mam,
    My biggest problem is getting traffic to my blog, i am writing articles from last six months, i am promoting at all places but till now not crossed 5000 page views per month, sometimes i lose my self confidence by seeing Google analytics stats.
    Marketing the blog is more important than anything, that’s why i read more articles on content marketing and web traffic.
    Thank you for sharing this article.

    Design problem is what I see very often in blogs.

    I first came to realize it for typography. I’m sure this is a very important element which couldn’t be handled without experience. Without the touch of a professional web designers, I think it is really hard to find out exact matched fonts for a theme.

    Typography is not just fonts and colors. Every single font and color has different aspects. For example, here are a few color theories:
    Red is the color of energy, power, leadership.
    Blue is the color of security, stability, loyality.
    Pink is the color of romantic, love, feminine.

    Hey Harleena Mam,

    Firstly I’d like to tell that, in past I thought these problems are only associated to me but now i got to know that many people are having such problems.

    Well, you have mentioned about design related problems, that’s really right. When I started blogging I used to change my design week after week which annoys my readers who are not loyal(Because I used to copy content like you have mentioned in other point). From past 6 months, I am not changing my blog themes and getting good results.

    I had also faced ethical blogging problems. You won’t believe it what now i am going to say. Just 1 year ago from now, I used to paste links in the comment section(Only links). Then a great person contacted me(the blog owner, on which i used to do so) and he told, if you will do these stuff then you will not get success then i changed my strategies. 🙂

    I haven’t faced Financial blogging problems. I use to adjust in what I have, i never take money from my Father/Mother regarding doing blogging(Except the computer and the starting internet bills) 🙂 Previously I used to blog on free blogspot blogs, after earning some money I had taken a .COM domain and after 2 months i had taken my own web hosting for WordPress. The feeling of purchasing something on our own money is really awesome. Isn’t it?

    I faced less search traffic and blog marketing problems but slowly, slowly they are diminishing. I am trying day and night to over come my problems and to become a Pro Blogger. That’s all I can say.

    Thanks for writing such a wonderful post. Waiting for your reply mam!

    It’s indeed a great honor to follow you with your aspirational blogging journey, Harleena Singh. Yet, the most common bloggers block is lack of patience which probably very few can win over. Yet, timing, contribution and readership maintenance should be done without fail. Thanks for such great article and at last I would really thank you for such great contribution, and I am really surprised that how you smartly covered such as long article without any fail.

    Great indeed, have a great weekend 🙂

    Oh boy I’ve had my share of blogging issues! I’ve been blogging for two years now, though I think my first 6 months shouldn’t count as I was truly clueless! I’ve had writer’s block – kind of in one now. I’m still recovering from an overly challenging blog crash that took weeks to fix and restore. And I’ve had hosting issues. Other than my writer’s block, I’m sure hoping I’ve got the other issues mended. I think I just need a vacation somewhere warm to thaw my brain out from all our cold and snow.

    Hi Harleena,

    I have to agree with everyone commented! This is an excellent topic and your post is very comprehensive as always 🙂 You know, everyone need a one-on-one sessions on critical problems.

    When it comes to this kind of topic, it definitely gonna be time consuming. Isn’t it? Well, that’s how it goes with my Support section and have to spend more time than blogging itself. But it gives me a lot of pleasure as I can help someone. You are too kind to help everyone as you can and I know you are enjoying it too 🙂 May be if you can host a Google+ Hangout or so, I think you can save more time too.

    As this on your blog and you are definitely gonna reply, the one and only question I wanna ask from you is how you land on recent blog posts so quickly? 😉 Quite a mystery my dear friend. Ha ha… You know the answer. BTW I feel like it’s your own Super Power 🙂 Kinda feel guilty not being able to. I’m too late to stop by on this one too. Sorry!!!

    Actually, I feel good about myself when I look into problems that other bloggers have been having. I guess, as I’m a casual blogger, the risk is low and don’t have to push myself to publish often either. Even less maintenance as I’m on a free blogging platform. You know how it is for self-hosted blogs. Don’t you? 🙂 It’s totally a different scenario for those who thinking about making money, and blogging for business. Lot of work and problems to involve.

    So far, most of the problems I’ve stumbled upon comes under ethical and legal categories Harleena. Spamming, copyright infringement and so on. Hence I maintain some strict but fair (as I believe) rules to keep things smooth and secure my blog, and keep in mind not to impose any legal implications when I generate content. Less dependencies are much better as I feel 🙂

    Apart from ethical and legal, next thing is Marketing 🙂 I can manage when it comes to technical sort of aspects but spending time on promoting content is what I’m lack of. At some points I don’t feel like using some marketing tools ’cause I don’t feel ’em ethical at all. You know, one-to-one commenting, you share / I share sort of stuff. I get they do help spread the word, but I don’t feel like involving in such acts. May be I need to hire someone to take care of that aspect? On that, I enjoyed the recent guest post here, Harleena 🙂

    However, there are some problems out of the blogging too. For example, still PayPal doesn’t support receiving money in my country, so I have handful of options when it comes to advertising. It’s not PayPal but the laws interfering here 🙂

    You have a wonderful week there dear 🙂

    Cheers…

    Financial problems – well, I have faced this one in the past. It’s one among the reasons why I had to shutdown my second blog prematurely.

    But, I have learned my lesson (I think). I want to sustain blogging through blogging – so, everything, from web hosting to plugins must be covered by blogging.

    Hopefully, I will be able to maintain that for my new blog. I haven’t implemented any monetization strategies yet (things haven’t been going as I planned). Studies are a bit more tougher..and managing time is hard, mainly because of motivation. It’s easier to just watch funny videos online, after a long day at school and doing HW, than blogging. But, I have managed to keep up with commenting (so far).

    I have made a change though…hopefully that change will give me enough time to manage everything more effectively.

    Legal problems…I haven’t had any so far (And, I don’t want to have any in the future; one among the reason why I am participating in my one photo a day experiment).

    On the marketing side of things, well, like I mentioned, I haven’t received the results I expected. I can’t blame anyone though, except for myself, since I didn’t invest enough effort; I didn’t manage my time more effectively.

    On the technical aspects of things, I have found out that my webhost is really the best at what they do. Sure, they are good with customer service and all, but I have downtimes every day (1 or two minutes. It doesn’t matter much, but what if one day this extends to an hour or two? I have already faced similar experiences). It was my mistake for not researching properly (I had assumed the webhost maintained their reputation and service from last few years).

    So, I have to move to another web host, soon.

    Lots of work to do. They are not really problems…I like to think of them as challenges; they make life interesting (and frustrating in some cases).

    Anyways, thank you for giving me an oppurtunity to share, Harleena! Appreciate it!

    Great post Harleena.

    This is my first comment to your blog. I started my freelancing career in 2011. Recently I have successfully launched my blog this year. As a newbie, I am facing a lot of marketing problem. Main thing is that there are less subscribers in my blog. Let me know how will I increase my subscribers?

    Hello Harleena,
    This post is really great. I’ve been blogging the past 1 year and up to now I’m still facing the problem either. I left Blogger and now I’m thinking of moving to WordPress. Blogging is my hobby, but I also want to make money out of it. As I am not making money from my blog, I am working on android games blog, so tell me can i share APK file of games link.

    Harleena,

    You are a Genius! As bloggers we all run into problems. Creating this group is a fantastic idea. Ever since I came into the blogging world, I always found someone to lend a helping hand.

    My journey didn’t start out easy, as many would say. But four years later, I Still need help on my blog.

    Recently, my server was merged with another company. I couldn’t get anyone to help with some problems I was having. Plus, I have a membership site set up that could not go down for any reason. It was too important, more than my blog, because that’s where people come in for trainings.

    I was beside myself! The man who built my membership site and all his techies couldn’t figure out why it wasn’t connecting to JVZoo. JVZoo couldn’t figure it out either. You could just imagine the anxiety levels!

    But, as you say, there is always a solution to the problem. After weeks of this, I reached out to Kumar. Thank God … He fixed the problem in one day and now I am using his server. It is so worth it for me because Kumar delivers.

    When it comes to customer service and your blog is in trouble, I strongly believe that servers these days do have many glitches lately. Not Kumar’s.

    So, this place that you developed will surely be of great help, especially with the many talented and trusted people in your circle.

    Many thanks,

    -Donna

    Very nice blogging post Harleena 🙂

    I’ve bookmarked this post two days to read it relax mind. Well explained and all possible blogging problems are consolidated here.

    I do have Ethical and technical problems as am unaware of such stuffs. But am finding time to learn those properly and wanna be a professional blogger. Out of all, finding time for blogging is my top problem as I need to take care of my family and getting limited time to do blogging. I feel hard sometimes that am missing great things in blogging. Anyway, I was advised by Atish a lot and he taught me to take time out for blogging.

    So, it would be really good if someone shows some valuable resources to overcome my technical blogging problems.

    Thanks for this awesome post Harleena 😛

    Hi Harleena, I know I wrote a comment earlier, but I was wondering if you could advise me. I am toying with the idea of moving my blog from Blogger to WordPress.org. Before starting my blog I toyed with the idea of self hosting, but I lack confidence in my ability to do it as I am totally computer illiterate.

    I am think maybe I made a mistake by starting on Blogger and should have taken the bull by the horns and self hosted. Could you advise me please, bearing in mind that I am clueless on a computer!

    Thank you.

But Still article is very helpful as you describe the solution also with each blogging error. I really like to follow your ethics for blogging. Thanks Once Again.

    Hello Harleena,

    This post is really awesome. I have been blogging from past 1 year and till now I am still facing one or the other problem. I started from Blogger and now I am thinking of switching to WordPress. Blogging is my hobby but I also want to make money out of it. Since I am not earning any money from my blog I want to use free images. Can you tell me from where I can get good quality free images.

    Hi Harleena, I clicked on your post whilst drinking my morning coffee to find it so full of handy info and other interesting post links that I could well be reading all day! I am new to the world of blogging and have a lot to learn.

    At the moment I am using a free blogging platform, I did check out self hosting – I think that’s what it’s called – but it scared the death out of me, I like to write, but am clueless about HTML code, have no idea what CSS is and end up having a melt down everytime I check out my template HTML – although I did manage to insert Pin Interest logos onto my images the other day, using a code – celebrations all round!!

    For now I have decided to stick with the free platform until I have built up enough confidence to self host.

    Is self hosting as difficult as I am imagining or is it just me stressing?

    At the moment I am forever tweeking the layout and look of my blog too, but I am sure everyone does that.

    Excellent post, thank you.

    Hi Harleena,

    I love this topic. Your post is filled with great information!

    The issue I have is being creative. I’m not good with html codes to design a logo or header for my blog. So I’m limited with what I can do. I’m also not good at the technical side of blogging.

    Thank goodness we have a supportive blogging community who not only shares tips but they also get their hands in the mess and help fix it. I don’t know what I’d do without ’em :).

    I’m going to finish reading the comments. I can’t wait for this Friday’s topic!

    I hope you’re off to a great week my dear friend!

    Hi Harleena,

    I think as bloggers we’ve all run into some of these issues along the way. Of course when I read this title my first thing was hosting issues since that’s what I’ve been dealing with lately.

    Of course my issues started with no customer support response which meant I couldn’t get my issues resolved because they wouldn’t respond to me. Then the server was hacked and more server issues with the new server occurred. Nothing of course I could do about it so these types of issues are beyond our immediate control.

    Now that this is finally resolved I can say at the moment I have no blogging problem. That doesn’t mean I won’t in the future though!

    Great series and I’m sure a lot of people are going to get some benefit from this.

    Enjoy your week.

    I think that nothing is more devastating to a blogger than the lack of consistency and perseverance in accomplishing his goal of regular blog posting. Many get impatient because they want to become successful overnight.

    Most of the time i face the problem of time management, As i am a blogger cum IT engineer, So maintaining balance between both the work is really very difficult. Apart from this, I also face SEO related problem because as we all know, that Google is changing its algorithms frequently, So we need to maintain our blog as per Google guidelines.

    Hi Harleena, What a great topic!

    It seems as if all bloggers are having problems. It isn’t as easy as it seems, is it? I know Adrienne has been having serious problems with her hosting company but I’m hoping she has those sorted out now.

    My biggest problem is one that hasn’t yet happened but is on the horizon. I switched to Thesis as a paid theme about two years ago but last year the developers launched Thesis 2.0, a completely new theme, and stopped updating the 1.x versions.

    Thesis works perfectly for me, I can do so much without knowing coding. But at some point, my Thesis theme will break with an update of WordPress and I will have to switch themes. I hope I can be alerted to that before it happens, but that day will come sooner or later.

    Having over 600 posts now, my changing themes will be a Herculean task that I don’t relish. If I could find a theme that would be easy to switch to and would give me the functionality of my Thesis theme, I would be very happy.

    Thanks for covering this very helpful topic, Harleena!
