If you think you want to Blog… Go for it. Just do it. Its easy.
Oh, wait… you want to have a successful blog? Define successful first.
First thing you need though, is something to say. If you just want to run your mouth, use Twitter or Facebook. If you want to really publish your words, then Blog.
The best way to do it is to pick a topic or two, or even three. These are you main subjects and stick to those. These should be subjects you are knowledgeable about.
Blog regularly, but make sure you have a point.
Blog for yourself. If you have an audience then great.
Don’t look at Blog Stats. Just do what you do.
If you don’t suck, people will dig it. If they don’t, who care? You blog for yourself. If you stay true to this, people will dig it.
I am considering, very strongly, starting a new blog. This would be a Food/Road/Character blog. A division of MadOgre.com. Not a replacement. If/When I do that, I’m going to kill my Facebook Account and just concentrate on my blogs and WTA.
