7 Point Test To Know If You Are A Useless Blogger

A bit harsh isn’t it?  But it’s the truth. There are bloggers out there that are completely useless. Pray that you are not one of them.

Let me not be the judge of your blogging prowess. I am in no position to do that, nor am I qualified too.

The person that is in the best position to judge your worth as a blogger is YOU.

So how or what do you judge?

  1. You leach other bloggers posts – You cannot come up with an original idea. You either repost, steal someone else's post, or repost it with some textual changes.
  2. You lack the basics of language – It is difficult when English (or any other language) is not your mother tongue. But a lot of bloggers lack the basics of writing and language skills. If you are like this, get help. Have others re-read your posts to help. Do this before every post.
  3. You don’t care about your readers – All you are interested in is how much your readers can benefit you. How much money they can spend buying junk from you that they do not need. How much traffic you can coerce out of them. Blogging is about your readers more than it is about you.
  4. You are inconsistent – People are strange creatures. We like simplicity. We like rules and we like reliability and dependability. If your blog is inconsistent or not reliable then why would anyone want to come back.
  5. Your blog post is a fruit salad – Your blog posts have no goal, no structure. You post about anything and everything. Each blog post is a mish mash of sentences that do not come to any point or have no conclusion.
  6. You make no friends – Blogging is as much about community as it is about writing. You do not have a community nor do you care to build one. You’re in it for your self and that's it.
  7. You think you’re the bees knees – So many bloggers have a superiority complex. They think they know it all. They think that they are above other bloggers and other readers. News Flash. You do not know it all.

So how did you fare? Did you answer or grade yourself correctly? Now that you know. It’s time to change
