I've been wanting to start one too and I'd also appreciate any tips from those who have already started a blog. Moreover, if anyone is actually earning income from their blog, it would be great if you could share some of that experience with us. Anything we should avoid in the process or something we should definitely look into? Thanks!

I would also love experienced bloggers to share their knowledge with us.
I just started mine too. Any tips would be appreciated :)

You won't make money from a blog right away, you won't even get any free stuff to blog about until you have a decent list of followers, so start building your readership early (many want facebook fans, twitter followers, instagram, even youtube vids and google to bother sending you stuff or paying for you to advertise for them).
Paying for a domain will get you ranked higher in searches and more likely to gain the readership needed to keep your blog going
You need to write regularly, even when you don't really want to but also seem into it.

I'm going on five years now. It's like a full time job if you're committed. You have to publish daily and create original ideas or posts. A lot of big bloggers just copy each other's stories from new feeds.

As for money making, you need to build a large base. Most brands or sponsors won't look at blogs under 1,000 members when considering paying for ad space or sending products. I have over 2,000 blog members and 20,000 plus hits monthly and it's still hard for me. Stupid blogger removed my Friend connect so only I can now see my blog members which makes it harder.

If you are creative, you can use your blog to sell stuff but you have to research your target audience well and have all the facts.

As for blog pitfalls; when I first started, I took bad photos with a cheapie camera, my editing was crappy and I ended up typing waaaaaay too much text. I used to get nasty comments that I wrote so much that a blogger was annoyed and unfollowed me. Lol

Live and learn :)

A great camera and quiet time helps when editing products for your blog.

A thick skin also helps, too many rude nasty people trolling around.

Hope I helped with your question.
