How to Be an Unsuccessful Blogger

BlogHer Original Post

There are lots of posts out there dedicated to telling you how to have a successful blog, but how many out there are telling you what NOT to do; in other words, how to ensure that your blog is rarely visited by readers? There are many ways to make sure that no one reads (a simple one: don't post!), but Hobbies on a Budget has compiled her top eight.

Then there are the “other blogs.” Maybe you visit them because you are related to the blogger and are trying to be supportive. Maybe you find their articles interesting but you hate the layout. I think there are many ways to Kill your Blog, but am narrowing the list to my top 8.

Check out Hobbies on a Budget's list, and tell us what else you'd add to her list.
