This is one of the worst habits in many newbie bloggers. You’ve to avoid copying other’s content because it’s illegal and if you continue copying content from other’s blog, then soon you’ll be caught by Google and your blog will be penalized.

Choosing interest related niches always perform well to deliver really valuable and worth reading content to our readers. If readers love our content, then they will love to visit our blog more often and build a strong readership around our blog.
