    I actually struggle a lot with consistency, so I rely on an app called Todoist. It keeps me highly organized….as long as I don’t overwhelm myself with too many items on the list :p

    Thanks for these reminders, it’s useful for bloggers of all levels.

    One of the biggest mistakes that novice blogger could make is to rip off the content from most successful bloggers or media sites. 1) It’s silly, as it’s detectable with Google Alerts and with free plagiarism checkers like unplag.com/free-plagiarism-checker. 2) It could destroy your reputation as a blogger to the ground, even before you gain some popularity.

      Fully agree.
      This site accepts previously-published articles, but I strongly warn authors that they must own the content. I have, on occasion, spotted one or two stolen pieces as they do fall through the cracks once in a while. Sadly these authors do not realize they’re only hurting themselves.

      Thanks for your input!

    I’m an entrant in online marketing. Really struggling to produce contents. I start off with copying and rewriting what others already posted, but somehow that makes me so frustrated.
