Hard work - news flash! Blogging is hard work. Don’t expect to be successful with out it.
Expertise - in a subject helps build loyal readers.
Attitude - be positive and dedicated.
Patience - and perseverance - you’ll need lots of this, when things aren’t going your way.
Optimism - you can do it!
Fun - your blog and have fun with it - or your heart just won’t be in it.
Content - high quality content will keep readers coming back.
Luck - a little luck goes a long way. A link, a digg, a stumble from the right person…
Innovation - try to do something a little different to everybody else. Novel content.
Credibility - be a credible source. Disclose affiliations and be truthful. Maintain integrity.
Karma - create good blog karma.
Search Engine Optimisation - is necessary if new readers are going to find you.
I was staring at a mind map I created some time ago about blogging, and the random words were jumping out at out me. I ran the letters through a nifty anagram finder, tweaked it a little and above is the result.
What’s your blogging anagram?
