sethgrodin.typepad.com: Good points here, but a lot were conflicting. E.g “Don’t write about your kids”, then a couple points down he recommends writing about your kids.
skelliewag.org: This article was very insightful about building yourself as a brand, and I think I will use it a lot in building my other blog.
chrisg.com I really sort of had an epiphany about my blog when reading this — definitely the one I think I’ll get the best use out of. It discussed “pillar” content like tutorials and in-depth how-to’s as a way to keep consistent traffic coming to your blog.
entrepreneurs-journey.com: I really liked this one because it gave me hope that I do have knowledge that is valuable to other people, and I could easily produce a good article that will have long-term value and drive readers to my blog.
