    What i like most on that list is the “Believe in yourself”. You must have trust in yourself and be committed to it so you could succeed

  9. Website Promotion Blog says:

    I agree with you despite many who claim you can build a business by spending 2 hours/day in 6 months. I see this impossible unless you spend lots of those green stuff for advertising!

  10. Vivek says:

    true, you must run your blog with seriousness of a business and you will reap the rewards.

  11. TallyHelper says:

    True when you said that believe in yourself. One niche is necessary to keep on giving good contents on any blog. One more thing i would add is frequency of posts and their originality matters a lot.

  12. Oozing Technology says:

    Specific niche stands good if you are passionate about it.

  13. toufan says:

    I disagree with the comment “Blogs’ should not be used for selling” A sales pitch is everything you write about! From promoting yourself, to the products you use, love and recommend. The simple article we read above is a promotional advertisement and extension of the persons thoughts and ideas. A promotion of themselves and their blog.

  15. Nityanand says:

    Sticking to one niche will have a lot of effect on readers as it will give the content they need and thats why they have come on the site
