    I agree that patience is key. It takes a long time to build something that will last. There are plenty of people who will promise you fast results, but the quicker something takes the build usually means the faster it will fall apart.

    Research and continuous marketing is extremely important. I started a few other blogs and they didn’t do well because I was only posting about them once as well as not doing any research for growth. Now that I’ve applied myself with my most recent blog, it’s doing very well because I am promoting it everyday and learning as much as I can about blogging.

    Having patience with your blog and promoting it are key. If you don’t promote you’ll get no traffic, and if you have no patience you won’t stick at it long enough to reap the benefits.

    Patience and Committment has to be the most significant of all these factors. I mean, I know of a lot of people who “thought” they wanted to blog but they quit early. Blogging is so much more than writing. And YES about marketing. I mean, if you do not want to be talking to the wind, then you have to work on your marketing strategies.
