Hi madmenace, First i must appreciate your idea for creating the new blog. Your blog must contain useful information, where people never seen those information before. One more thing, every one should inspired on your blog. That is based on your creativity mind. Your blog shouldn't contain any false information. All the best.

A successful blog is when you really feel to write a blog without pressuring you but instead it is the time for you to write what you experience and you really mean it and also the topic will be read by other readers. The important is you, the reader and the site after all you can earn thousands of dollar like Pete Cashmore and Darren Rowse. My mistakes is I became lazy, & impatient as time passed by until i found out that my readers are decreasing but then I slowly bring it back and now i told to my self that I need to do the right thing. I still want to be a good writer/ & a blogger. Well, being a blogger needs to have an updated blog. I suggests you to post at least 2 posts or above everyday.. Just a simple way. Being a blogger, you will experience some difficulties and if you want to stay your blog, do the right thing. I hope for your success. =)

The best advice I can give is to pick a blog topic you have a real interest in. You want to avoid becoming bored writing about your topic and so a topic you are passionate about always works best. The next piece of advice I can give you is to keep the content fresh. The only way you are going to get traffic and keep it coming back is by offering new material to read on a routine basis. I try to aim for at least 4-5 blog posts a week if possible. You can also write them now and then schedule them to post at different times through out the week if you need to. Connect with other bloggers that write about your topic as well. They can provide you with lots of great advice and even drive traffic to your site in some cases. You will find that almost all bloggers you come across are very nice and more then happy to help a newbie out.
