Darren Rowse at ProBlogger has a nice post on some lessons he have learned from his 3 years of blogging. Some of them are really true, and this is a must read if you are blogging, if your blog to be a hit – no matter if you commericalize your blog or not:
- Be Lucky
- Work Hard
- Use the Power of Exponential Growth
- Differentiate Yourself
- Provide Value
- Target a Niche
- Don’t Spread Self too Thin
- Have a Backup Plan
- Be Light on Your Feet
- Relationships are Key
- Establish Boundaries
- Don’t read your Own Press
- Beware of Hype
- Get a Life
- Make Mistakes
- Be Yourself
- There are No Rules
Some of them I learned elsewhere and I have applied those into this blog. The success of this blog (As of today, we have over 5700 unique RSS readers who fetch this blog’s RSS feed daily from feedburner!) really shows those key elements work!
Come to think of it, those lessons that Darren talks about can be applied to general business. Entrepreneurs and business owners, what do you think?
Are there any extra bits that you can think of? What sort of lessons you have learned in your business or blogging?
Would lifehack.org readers with blogs please show hand and comment about their blogs and their experience?
