In this week's episode of the All Freelance Writing Podcast, I highlight five common blogging myths and misunderstandings new bloggers should look out for.
Blogging myths featured in this episode include:
- You have to post every day, or nearly every day.
- Every post should be "epic" content, over 2000 words, etc.
- There's some big difference between "blog posts" and "articles," and freelance bloggers should be paid less than "article writers" as a result.
- Blog planning and organization isn't a big deal, because it's super simple to change it later.
- You should never monetize your blog when it's still new.
All complete and utter BS. And after explaining why, the episode moves on to a community question from Gina Alianiello about why freelance writers often don't mention the research time involved in their projects on their professional websites. And I close out this episode with a book recommendation for indie authors looking for book marketing tips and ways to stand out.
