6 Negative Habits Lazy Blogger That Hinders Success
In recent times I feel sorry for a blogger hat still exhibit these traits. Mind you, knowing what a lazy blogger does should be the signals for you to avoid being lazy at the end of the day.

(1.) Procrastinating: I used to be a fan. Now, I list what want to do with the time to execute it. I am gradually leaving the fan base. What is procrastinating? It is simply a robber of time, to delay doing something that you ought to do, usually because you do not want to do it. If you are fond of this habit, it is high time you stopped because nothing positive comes out of it.

(2.) Inconsistent Blog Update: Updating a blog is very vital when it comes to the success of the blog. Updating has to do with writing post regularly, redesigning, adding widget , responding to comments, etc. Keeping your blog busy will interest new visitors. A lazy blogger lacks the passion.

(3.) Visiting our Own Blog: It is to visit your own blog in order to increase your page views. I am sure you would have done this one or twice when you were still a baby blogger, if I am wrong or right let me know.

(4.) Abnormal Checking Traffic Stats: This is a total waste of time with no success. A lazy blogger will always check these stats even though there is virtually nothing to check. I am sure some bloggers will even add Feedjit widget to check the time intervals of visitor.

(5.) Abnormal Checking of Adsense or Affiliate Accounts: Don't get me wrong. I am not saying it is wrong to check. When you have poor traffic and you are looking forward to getting those clicks. This will not happen; there is no free food in Free Town. You won't achieve anything and it is a waste of precious time that can be utilized to do something more productive.

(6.) Duplicating Other’s Contents: This is a criminal offence because content is king online. Lazy bloggers who duplicate contents should be punished. If you need someone else's content, copy the article and add a link back to the post. Although, I post articles that are not mine from article farms but I usually link back to the author's website. You can even say that it is a guest post.
