Another day has dawn on us once more again and as usual,everyone has moved back to work including bloggers as well.But there is one thing we all can agree on and that is we all want to go to heaven but who wants to die? Hahaha!
Look at this;
Two little boys stole a BIG bag of orange from their neighbour and decided to go to a calm place to share the loot equally.
One of them suggested the nearby cemetery. As they were jumping the big gate to enter the cemetery, 2 oranges fell out of the bag behind the gate but they didn’t bother to pick them since they had enough in the bag.
A few minutes later, a drunkard on his way from a bar passed near the cemetery gate and heard voices saying: “One for Me, One for YOU . “One for Me, One for YOU”.
He immediately sobered up and ran as fast as he could to the church near by for the Priest.
“Father, please come with me, come and witness, God and Satan sharing corpse at the cemetery.
They both ran back to the cemetery gate and the voice continued: “One for Me, One for YOU, One for Me, One for YOU…”
Suddenly the voice stopped counting and said: “What about the two at the gate?
The priest almost ran past the church gate, shouting “we are not dead yet oooh!
Hahaha! I am sure that particular priest has being preaching how beautiful how is but just see what happened. Let me laugh one more ; hahaha!
On a more serious note, we are all do agree that we can’t enter heaven with sin so apply in blogging as well. We can’t be successful bloggers with these blogging sins as well;
1.Not attributing your sources
The number one sin a blogger commit is not giving unto Caesar what belongs to Caesar. Linking blogs where necessary is what one should consider doing. Link back to the right sources and give the right credit where it is due.
2.Linking to your own blog multiple times
Are you at fault as well? Mind you, the supreme word here is ‘multiple’ times.I am not in any way saying linking to your own blog is a sin but when it is overdone, it is a SIN. There is a general perceptions that linking within your post increase pageviews. Therefore are you just interested in increasing your pageviews or valuing your audience?
There have being several instances where one is likely to come across things like ‘MUST READ’ right in the middle of a post. Is it an interesting way of telling me to stop reading what I am reading currently and move on to what you are suggesting as a ‘MUST READ’?
3.No search box
Another crime in blogging which is also equal to sinning is not having a search box. I have committed that sin myself but thank to people like Mr. Suresh, I have repented of my sin and now a born again non-sinner with a search box on my blog now.
How do expect to earn money as a blogger when you have no contact forms, email address etc on your blog? How are advertisers going to contact you? Not just advertisers but how do you expect your fellow bloggers to contact you as well? Remember you’re committing a blogging sin when you don’t have a contact page.
5.Templates with eye-popping colour combinations.
You sometimes visit a blog and if you are not careful,you might think you’re at the discotheque. Going flashy with colours is something which really works offline but not online.
Please share your views on this.What in your own estimation makes up blogging sin? What do you make of this post?
