    Thanks for the info and it is very helpful.. Using background music for a blog site is a great idea..I think..If I submit my link to this site http://blogcarnival.com/bc/clist.html, what benefit that it can give to my blog?

    using background music means not good. It's a mistake number 6 by count in the list.

    Serge - I never answered your question about carnivals. . . .

    Blog carnivals are organized link-fests. There are carnivals about every topic imaginable. Different blogs host the carnival every week or two and bloggers submit their best posts about the topic to the carnival. If the host finds your post interesting, he will link to it. It is a great way to start getting exposure to a blog. Once you've had some experience participating, hosting a carnival provides even more exposure.

    Learn about carnivals at: http://blogcarnival.com/bc/

    I hope that helps!

    Excellent Post. Every new blogger should read these tips.

    I also like the fact you mentioned the most simple mistakes as well like using the default template and not hosting a blog on your own domain.

    I like blogger, but I solely use it to promote my niche sites!

    I just came back to this thread and realized that I have made one of those mistakes:
    Using Feedburner chicklet that shows number of subscribers before you’ve got at least 50-100 subscribers

    I can see why that's a bad thing now. Better remove it. :p

    Bigp, the translation into Spanish of your article is quite good, although some technical words that were left in English can still be translated. I think it's great you offer Spanish and French versions of your posts in your blog!
    ¿Hablas Español? Parles-tu Français?

    Your article is awsome! Good job! Keep up the good work!

    Good post, and I agree about the background music thing. Such a function should have to be deliberately activated by the visitor.

    Take a look back through this discussion. There is an explanation on what carnivals are.

    I'm glad people keep finding this article to be helpful. If you do, please don't forget to Digg, Del.icio.us, Stumble, or otherwise publicize it!
