The Internet contains nearly 3 million active blogs. With so many blogs, how does one become popular?
William Kraska lists the qualities that will distinguish a good blog from the others:
specificity and passion -- have a single focus about a topic you really enjoy. Importantly, put a little of yourself into it.
Reader comments -- will help a blog be more than just a blogger "writing into space." Of course, comments help you know if your writing is working, and what you need to strengthen in your writing (Click for the blog comments debate).
Patience -- it takes time, sometimes months and years, to build a following for your blog. Be patient and committed.
