Simon World has a good post titled Everything you wanted to know but were afraid to ask. Its got some great advice on blogging for anyone starting out….or continuing in blogging.
Here is a couple of his tips:
4. Prepare for the reality that the rest of the world may not share your high opinion of yourself and your site.
5. You know that movie where the guy built a baseball field and waited for some dead folks to turn up and play ball? Blogging’s like that. Prepare to slog at putting up brilliantly crafted, accurate and to-the-point insights that will proceed to make no difference to anything at all….
7. The big bloggers (in terms of readership, not size. I’m sure at least some of them are thin) are big for a reason. They fill a niche, they have interesting opinions, they’ve been doing it for a long time. Whatever it is, you need to realise that overnight success can take years to create.
There is heaps more there to look over.
