Nobody told me how hard it would be to make money at blogging. I will share with you a few of the standards I set for myself, which in the end paid off, in tip #28.
I have met a few folk who said, “I have blogged a LOT this week.”
“I wrote 3 posts this week.”
Three posts is NOT a lot.
Technorati considers a blog that gets updated once a month to be an active blog.
I do not consider that active.
As I write this it happens to be the time for NaNoWriMo. Writers all over the world are committed to writing a novel – good, bad and ugly – in one month. The goal – 50,000 words in the month of November. Get it down on paper then revise it. You can’t revise what you don’t have…that sort of thing.
50,000 words in a month?!
When I kicked off my blogs, see TheTrafficProfessor
There might be blogs that put out more content in a month with a team of writers, but I don’t know which blog it is.
There might be more prolific bloggers than I but I don’t know them either.
That was the standard I set for myself. And it worked for me.
How long did it take me to do that much work each day? I’ll answer that tomorrow.
Nobody said it was going to be easy.
