In the previous post, we took a look at some blogging practices that you may want to avoid. The rationale behind avoiding such practices is to be able to maintain your readership and even more, widen it. Let us take a look at a few more practices that you might want to avoid.

Busy bee look
I have to admit, many bloggers that I know are busy bees. They never like to find themselves without work to do. Now this is a generalization and I realize that it does not apply to everyone but if there is one thing I know, I do not appreciate blogs which have the busy bee look. The effect that these kinds of blogs have on me is that I am left confused and unsure as to what the blog could offer me. Correct me if I am wrong but this is one of the last things that you would want your customers to think about you, your blog, and company. So if I were you, I would create a blog that is neat, easy to navigate, and orderly.

Intrusive ads
Ads are a part of our lives, there is no denying that. We all know that they serve a purpose and they benefit everyone involved. The thing is, we also know that most people do not appreciate having to deal with intrusive ads. They want to read your blog and what you have to say. They do not want to be taken to another site to see an ad. They do not want to see pop ups all over the place each time they click on something in your blog.
