Blogging Advice that's Not Worth Your Time

BlogHer Original Post

Many people put together posts detailing various ways you can grow your blog traffic, but Lovely Indeed has gone the opposite route, maybe saving you a lot of time as well as feeling as if you're banging your head against the wall. She's put together a list of advice she has tried that hasn't worked out for her.  Maybe you've tried some of these things too and discovered they also weren't worth your energy.  Or maybe they've been on your to-do list for a long time.  Either way, her list is definitely worth a read.

You might remember this post about the things I’ve done on my blogging path that have really helped to up my game and grow Lovely Indeed. Well, there are also a few things that I’ve tried along the way that were dismal failures. Things that I was really excited about, or thought would get a great response, or bring lots of traffic, and that just… didn’t.

Which things have you tried from her list?  Do you agree that they didn't grow your blog traffic enough to make them worth it?  What would you add to her list?
