    It is becoming very obvious to take blogging as a full time or else you should leave it. Is their a way for those who can not just leave their job and sudden but still want to share their ideas with the world. I think their should be a a blogging guide for those who want to do blogging as a hobby but their blog should not die a lone just because of less promotion

    • Andrew January 10, 2012 at 4:03 pm #


      You can start blogging while still working full-time. I did for 3 years!

      Then I was making enough money to leave the corporate world.


  2. Katie Woodard January 9, 2012 at 5:39 pm #

    I can’t wait for this series to start. Actually I can’t wait for the “How to get Backlinks” post. Hopefully I can learn something new from it.

    • Andrew January 10, 2012 at 4:03 pm #


      I hope you do too!


  3. Cris January 9, 2012 at 7:31 pm #

    Hey Andrew,

    This should be a nice series, I suppose. I’ll be following along.

    • Andrew January 10, 2012 at 4:04 pm #


      I hope you do join me for the journey.

      All any feedback along the way would be great.


  4. Debbie January 9, 2012 at 9:39 pm #

    Great series Andrew. Even blggers that have been doing this a while can always use a refresher course.

    thank and looking forward to it.
    Blessing to you,

    • Andrew January 10, 2012 at 4:05 pm #

      Very true, Debbie.

      If you get just one thing from it…it will be worth it!


  5. Tushar January 10, 2012 at 7:24 am #

    This is surely a wonderful series. I confess that after spending 3 years in blogging, I still need to perfect some aspects. Will look out for it

    • Andrew January 10, 2012 at 4:06 pm #


      I really hope you get something from it as well.

      We never stop learning!


  6. Young January 10, 2012 at 2:05 pm #

    Good list, looking forward to the detailed posts of every topic, so that I may follow the HOW TO and make a better blog.

    • Andrew January 10, 2012 at 4:07 pm #


      Great to have you on board. Please let me know what you think in each post.


  7. Dave Doolin January 10, 2012 at 9:18 pm #

    Looks good, you’re building out something which is complementary to what I’ve been doing. I’ll be following along as you build it out.

    • Andrew January 12, 2012 at 1:45 pm #


      I hope you like it. First post in the series published!


  8. Levi January 11, 2012 at 4:47 am #

    Actually keyword research would be the most important thing after picking out your niche. HostGator would be fine for hosting.

    The term blogging is for writing quality content and be able to share it to the public and somehow a way to make your presence online. Making money would be easier if you already have your brand.

    • Andrew January 12, 2012 at 1:48 pm #


      It’s actually quite difficult to say which one is the most important. They are all important.

      Bit like saying which one is the most important in a successful football team:

      The coach?
      The team?
      The pitch manager?
      The nutritionist?

      All very important.


  9. Gary Ashton January 11, 2012 at 5:09 am #

    This may sound cliche but in my experience the best way to choose your niche by selecting the topic that you love to write about. Nowadays, high quality content is necessary not only in user’s perspective but also for search engines. If you’re passionate about the topic you’re writing about, then surely you can come up with an article that would bring valuable information to your readers and an article that will stand out from the rest.

    • Andrew January 12, 2012 at 1:50 pm #


      What you love to write about is only part of picking a niche.

      If you want to make some income…the niche you love to write about may not sell on-line.

      Then that niche would be a waste of time…no matter how much you love it.

    This series looks great. I’m looking forward to following along.


    • Andrew January 12, 2012 at 1:51 pm #


      First post in the series just published – I hope you like it!


  11. Barry January 11, 2012 at 3:54 pm #

    Nice Idea and best fit for new year! Hope this series will help both novice and expert bloggers. Look forward to more topics in the coming days!

    • Andrew January 12, 2012 at 2:48 pm #


      It will certainly help novice bloggers and I think it will be a great refresher for experts ones.

      Let me know what you think…I’ve just published the first post in the series.


  12. Eddie Gear January 12, 2012 at 8:47 am #

    Hi Andrew, I guess I should call this the secret ingredient to build a healthy and successful blog.

  13. Louise January 13, 2012 at 2:09 pm #

    Really looking forward to the series, although I have started my websites/blogs there is always things you forget and this will remind to to go back and cover areas I have forgotten!


    • Andrew January 16, 2012 at 6:57 pm #


      I do hope it is a refresher type series for many bloggers. There should be something for everyone!


  14. Santosh parajuli January 17, 2012 at 7:34 pm #

    well well that awesome information buddy keep going on posting like this posts i like to follow you.

  15. Justin Mazza January 23, 2012 at 5:18 pm #

    I can’t stress enough the importance of quality content. We all have read posts that have rather vague and generalized content that is not actionable or at least inspiring to the reader.

    • Andrew January 23, 2012 at 6:28 pm #

      True Justin.

      Content is getting harder and harder to create.

      I’ve often said ‘good enough’ is no longer good enough!


  16. Debbie February 10, 2012 at 5:12 pm #

    Wow Andrew I can not believe that you are giving this all away in your post. Going to be a nice refresh course for me.

    Nobody should miss this. It is a great opportunity for learning.
    Blessing to you,

  17. Ajnabii April 10, 2012 at 12:00 pm #
