First things first

Here is the first question you have to answer: What do you really want to blog about? Don't worry that people may not be interested in it... The odds are firmly with you! 6 Billion people on the planet means that however unique you think your interests are, some people are going to be passionate about them, and so will love to read about them, and your "take" on them...

What are you passionate about? What would you like to write about consistently for a long time? These questions are important ones to answer... coz CONTENT is the most important aspect of blogging...

Would you be able to inspire interest in the topic of your choice in a person not interested in it? Also would you be able to contribute meaningfully to the already existing content about what you are interested in so that people who love it, find something new to read about it?

Finally, would you be able to do this on a consistent basis? According to me, CONSISTENCY is the second most important aspect to getting recognition in the blogosphere. Can you commit to updating your blog on a regular basis? You will owe that to your readers!

Anyone can blog... there are plenty of zombified blogs out there to prove that :) But, if you want your blog to be a living breathing entity with a great community, you are going to be have to be very, very clear about what you are going to write (Content), and how often (Consistency)...

This Blog will be updated once or twice a week. On Mondays, Wednesdays or Fridays at 10:30 AM of whichever time zone in the world i am. See you next week :)
