How to be a successful blogger in 5 easy steps

I have a blog. Therefore I am a blogger. If you are reading this, then I am a successful blogger.

For my first post ever, I thought I would share some tips as to how you, too, might become a successful blogger.

Step 1

Setup a blogger account.

Step 2

Think very carefully about what you want to post. This step will take you somewhere between 12 and 24 months.

Step 3

Pick up Scoble's book, "Naked Conversations". Read it very carefully, so you understand the blogging culture.

Step 4

Let the book sink in. Maybe another 8 months or so. You don't want to rush into anything here. Subscribe to lots of blogs and lurk for a while.

Step 5

Be sure to include an Amazon associates link in your first post, so that everyone knows you are in this for the right reasons.

So my nagging had nothing to do with it?

It's good to see another Frederictonian blogging about development items. I'm looking forward to some more posts.

I thought about mentioning that, but I didn't want to risk offending my entire audience.
