Errors are unpleasant or have even partial consequences. Therefore, we try to avoid them.
However, this often leads to the fact that bloggers do not take any risks anymore or even not start with the blog.
In this article, I will discuss why errors are important.
This item is part of the following series:
Tip 11 – To Learn from Mistakes
As the title suggests, I consider mistakes useful.
In science, it is said that there are no bugs since you can always learn something. And so I see the principle synonymous with mistakes of bloggers.
It’s about learning and it never ends. But only if you try something and sometimes make mistakes, can develop further.
Risk of Failure
That’s why I think it’s important to always try new things as a blogger. Anyone who wants to avoid any mistakes will inevitably be unable to do anything new since there is always the danger of mistakes or mistakes.
That’s why I advise you to have some courage and just get started. Most mistakes are neither permanent nor dramatic. And I promise that you will learn a lot more from it than if you just read what others have for you.
“Learning by doing” may involve some risk, but it is the best learning method.
Do not Run Blind into Error
However, you should not turn your own mind off. Mistakes that others have made you do not necessarily have to make again. You should learn from others, in spite of everything.
In addition, not every mistake is equally bad. Therefore, you should first consider what could happen in the worst case and then consider whether you try it.
Furthermore, one should, of course, learn from their own mistakes and not make them a second time.
Caution yes, fear of mistakes no.
I’ve made a lot of mistakes in my blogging career. Much small, a few large.
Some would not have needed it (just the bigger ones), but overall I’ve learned from each one. I would not be where I am with my blogs today if I had not made my mistakes. These often shape a lot more than success.
If one adheres to the basic rules (especially with regard to legal requirements), then there are actually no errors that are really bad.
Mistakes and mistakes belong to life and they usually shape us more than the successes.
Even when blogging you can make mistakes, of course. There is nothing against common/typical errors before research and avoid.
Nevertheless, you should not be afraid of mistakes and just get started.
Think about whether you are always trying something new or if you prefer to do nothing for fear of mistakes.
Try to imagine the worst case and then consider whether that really is so bad. Usually, it is not and you should be active.
