Blogging Mistake: Auto-Play Background Music

Here's a mistake I encounter among new bloggers: adding background music to your blog. 

It is rarely a good idea to have music automatically playing when someone opens your blog. 

I imagine 90% of readers will immediately find it annoying and try to figure out how to turn it off.  It also wastes bandwidth and slows down your page's loading speed. 

If you really want to ad music to your blog, don't set it to auto-play.

    Lately some of the blogs that I've been visiting has also added pop-up ads. This also is annoying. I usually end up leaving before anything loads. I understand the need to monetize a blog. I don't like pop ups on regular webpages and leave those as well.

  4. Thanks, JT, I may mention that one.
