Advice for Beginner Bloggers: Be Patient

Successful blogging is kind of like building a skyscraper--it takes time to do it right:

*It takes time to build an audience of faithful readers.

*It takes time to develop a collection of high quality posts.

*It takes time to improve your writing skills. 

*It takes time for word to spread about your blog (by word of mouth, links, etc).

There are exceptions—blogs that become popular overnight.  Even in these cases, such blog authors will have to keep posting in order to keep their readers interested.  Otherwise, they might turn into “one hit wonders” (borrowing a reference from the musical world).  They may fade away as soon as they appear.

Do some research—you’ll find that most of the top blogs have been around for at least two or three years. 

Be patient!  Good blogs take time to build.

    hey, nice idea putting an ad at the bottom of a post related to it...

  2. Well, the ad is actually random. Just happens that bidvertiser tends to do blog-related ads sometimes.

    ah..ok. thought you chose that but how did you do that still? Put an ad at the bottom of your post. Is it the same as putting an ad at the bottom, heading or side of the page gaya ng google add (where you add a page element?)

  4. I posted the code in the actual entry. It doesn't really work with google ads bit it does with bidvertiser.
