Some solid advice for aspiring bloggers from Nicolas Lazaro of The Bengal Stripe
Whatever blogs you read now, don’t try to emulate them. Know yourself, know what you like, and build an online identity based off of that. Keep away from fads and anything that doesn’t fit with who you are, and create some real content; don’t just post pictures that you think are cool. …Lastly, there will be a dry patch at first unless you’ve had a running start, just stick with it and if it’s something you truly enjoy, eventually other people who enjoy it will find it too. None of your favorite blogs started out with thousands of readers, they got to where they are by being real and by being smart.

Nicolas, your comment about “a dry patch” is so true. I’m in one know. At first I was concerned. I am riding it out and and building a nice solid list of ideas I will write about in the new year.
As a new blogger I needed this expert advice.
Thanks for the reminder.
I’m 3 blog posts into my nascent blogging career. Thanks for the advice, I will keep it in mind.
Hey Jason am on my tenth so you can imagine how i need to keep hearing this.oh and check it out!
It’s a good reminder. It’s like being new to running and going one mile and wondering how anyone could run a marathon. Then you put your time in, learn about the right way to do it, set some goals and only then do you start seeing how far you can go. I’m at the one mile stage in blogging right now so your encouragement is right on time!
