10 Tips for Novice Bloggers

  1. Recognize that any deep thoughts that might wander into your posts won't draw as many visitors as blogs featuring cute kittens.

  2. Ruthlessly manage your time.

  3. Write well but don't imagine that you're competing with Tolstoy.

  4. Seek a distinctive voice.

  5. Be kind. It wears well.

  6. Be sure to give credit where it is due.

  7. Get to the point.

  8. Treat your blog as if it were a magazine that you'd like to read.

  9. Never turn the content of your posts into commercials.

  10. Don't expect to make a lot of money.
