31DBBB Day 4: Analyze a Top Blog

I was not going to post about this but I decided going into this I would post about every single assignment. If I skip it I will just be letting myself down and I try very hard not to do that.

The fourth day's challenge, Analyze a Top Blog in Your Niche [Day 4: 31DBBB] is to do just what it says. I don't think this blog really falls into any certain niche so I checked out a couple of different type blogs including a couple or artist/designer sites, a gaming site, and a tech site. I spent hours pouring over a couple of them and the conclusion I draw is this. Most of these sites exist for a reason other than personal blogging as mine does. They have some kind of budget for advertising to pull in readers and they have daily posts on good subjects.

I can work on some of the things I saw such as regular posts and maybe come up with a small budget but I am not sure that is right for this blog, at least not yet. Once I get into blogging daily again and have decent posts with good subjects, I will consider some advertising. I will be working on the blog and I hope it will be enough, at least for now, to pick up more readers.

Here are more articles about my participation in the 31 Days to Build a Better Blog Challenge.

Good idea about posting/commenting on each assignment - I'm doing that as well; just another great way to keep the momentum going...

Keep it up...
