A get this question via email and it also came up at a recent luncheon with a good friend. Dun dun dun, get ready, this is it! “What do you think are the keys to blog success?” My friend Natalie was the one to ask it most recently. She and I met working in the same office 13 years ago and she told me she was thinking of starting a blog and my response was “Great! Absolutely!”
Natalie is that gal who not only has impeccable taste but also painted her own two story house all by herself without any help and while the babies napped because she couldn’t stand that the house they bought was salmon pink and she wasn’t going to shell out thousands to a professional. I love that kind of gumption.
Natalie threw a few questions my way, good questions, ones that I’m sure a lot of new bloggers have so I answered them and I thought I’d repeat them here. If you want to start just a hobby blog then by all means ignore everything I say but if you’d like to see yours grow to a business or you’d like to work with brands in your niche, then here are ten tips that will improve your chances for success.
