  2. Never linking to old posts
  3. Never linking to other bloggers
  4. Forgetting to fill out your page title and description fields
  5. Creating clunky URLs
  6. Plagiarizing other bloggers
  7. Publishing less than one post per month
  8. Writing big blocks of copy
  9. Zero presence on any social media platforms
  10. Never inviting readers to leave comments
  11. Writing about a topic nobody cares about
  12. Giving up
