Building a Blog: What it Takes by TJ Philpott

Building a blog that not only attracts people but keeps them coming back has everything to do with how you deliver your content. When visitors land on your platform they expect to find interesting and unique content consistent with the theme you promote. They also expect an occasional 'sparkle' of thought provoking insight or perspective casting new light on various but otherwise familiar topics. Most popular blogs seem to excel at this and at a closer glance it seems that this is more an acquired skill than a natural born talent. Remember your blogging platform is simply the 'pulpit' you are using to deliver messages, updates or maintain dialogue on subject matter of interest to both you and your readers. Doing this consistently is the core to the success of any of the most popular blogs you may find regardless of their niche!
