Successful Blogging

For those who are interested, as I am, in blogging as a genre of writing, here's a piece that talks about the purpose of a blog and how to measure its success.

There are a lot of people blogging, from the 31-year-old housewife who proclaims that her life is boring and goes on to prove it (it may not be boring if she didn't think so, but that's another discussion) to the million-hit top ten blogs. In between are niche writers sharing their expertise in quilt making, cooking, wine, weather, music and so forth.

Their audience may be small, especially compared to the big public-policy blogs, but the interests are important. What a resource these free-to-publish, free-to-read sites are.
