How do you know when your blog is successful? Obviously, different people have different criteria for success, but I think your blog is successful when you build a community around your blog or a group of blogs.
Take this blog for example: I have a couple of regular readers who comment on my posts that they find interesting or relate to. I read their blogs back and do the same.
Much to Facebook and Myspace’s ailing, blogging may just be the most intimate and interactive form of social networking on the Internet. Facebook and Myspace tried to copy that format, but nothing beats having your own web page as a blog.
With most blogs, prime posting time is 8:00 a.m. Eastern time. My audience tends to read in the evening, so I can get away with posting after work.
Unlike Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, Digg, and other social media, my Blog is a decent representation of who I am, which is why I strive to post every day.
I’d keep writing, but my parents are watching TV and it’s impossible to concentrate.
