Myth1: Mostly People think that Blogging is very easy
This is the biggest myth that most of the people have in their mind. Blogging is not so easy. It is not the case of writing good content only. Blogging involves many things like managing online community; so that many people follow your blog and you need to do a lot of research work for your blog, so that you can provide good and relevant information to your readers. You have to actively participate on your blog for answering the questions, discussing any topic and many more.
Myth2: Minimum 400 words are necessary to publish any post
This is also one of the myths prevalent amongst peoplethat you need to publish post of minimum 400 words, it’s not necessary. It is absolutely your wish that whether you want to write a short article or long. Your main goal should be only to provide clear, proper and full information to your readers through your article.

Myth 3: Blogging is only a past time and there is not any money

But then some of the bloggers starts earning money by giving other’s advertisements on their blogs. Some of the most famous and profitable blogger on the internet today are TechCrunch, Problogger, Shoemoney, John Chow, Steve Pavlina. One can earn sufficient amount of money through blogging.
Myth 4: You need to post everyday to get success
It’s not necessary to post on your blog every day. The mainstream blogs who have team of writers generally post every day and sometimes many times a day. Instead of posting daily, you need to write some quality content even if you can post once in a week or twice a week. Quality matters a lot because your viewers read your articles based on the information that you will provide. Many bloggers who post once in a week have also a lot of responsive readers. But keeping long gaps between the posts can be cause a decline in popularity.
