Blogging Tips

The Martha Stewart Show, September 2008

1. Find a Niche
All new bloggers need to do something different than every other blog out there. You must blog about something you're passionate about. Create a look or set a tone that is unique.

2. Be Prepared To Put In Long Hours
This is one of the most important rules in blogging. Since you are your own boss, you will have to work hard and keep yourself motivated to build your blogging empire. Remember: The more you update your blog, the more viewers will be drawn to return, more often.

3. Don't Be Afraid to Network
Don't be afraid to ask for things. Keep a line of communication open for things you need, want, or are interested in. And, most importantly, remember to be easily accessible to your readers.

Special Thanks
Special thanks to celebrity blogger Perez Hilton for sharing these blogging tips.

    Love him or hate him. Perez is a "man" on a mission. At first I thought I was reading tips from Martha. Who would have thought he had so much in common with Ms. M?
