If you are newbie lifestyle blogger, chances are you have made one or all the mistakes that I about show in this blog post. If you have, then my suggestion is not to worry, because today, I am going to show you how to fix your mistakes and get on the path of becoming a notable blog in the lifestyle niche.
So, let’s get started with the mistakes that sabotage growth of lifestyle bloggers.
Not giving respect to audience and ignoring their opinions
Initially, blogs don’t get much traffic. This is the time when bloggers are eagerly waiting to reply to any comments or suggestions on their blogs. Once bloggers start getting action, they get too busy enjoying the fame that they forget to respect their audience.
I have seen plenty of bloggers who don’t reply to emails, and comments that are posted by people visiting their blogs. If you are doing this, then let me tell you that you are missing out on dedicated followers, and a blogger is nothing without his followers.
Show them the respect that they deserve, and reply to their queries, questions, and comments. If you are too busy with content writing, you should hire someone to become your virtual assistant and manage these things for you. On Freelancer.com, you can get a virtual assistant on an hourly basis for less than $2 per hour.
Not Being Present On Social Media Sites
Social networking sites like Pinterest, Instagram is the best place for you to showcase your blog. Any picture that you take, any blog post that you write, any product that you build, should be present on your social networking sites, if you are not doing that, then you are undermining the power of social selling.
You should understand that the internet is becoming social and in the future, most of the sales will be made through social platforms.
So, don’t waste time and start being active on social networking sites, starting today.
Indulging In Fights With Other Bloggers For Publicity
This is something that fools get into. Some bloggers think that if they will defame prominent bloggers, they will get the attention of masses and thus become famous. This is not the way the internet behaves, this is how traditional media behaves!
If you think that foul-mouthing other bloggers, who are like you, is going to make you famous, then let me tell you that your blog will be dead for a few months of starting these tactics, and you will also earn a bad name for yourself.

Not Revealing Their Identity
Some people are shy, some are anxious, some are afraid. It doesn’t matter what is holding you back, take the first step and show your identity on your blog, your readers want to learn whose content they are reading.
