I've just purchased my first domain name and am working on some background stuff to get my blog setup. Although excited about this new venture, I am concerned about ways to get activity to my blog. I have a good friend that has a very successful blog and they have told me they will guide me step by step. One thing they have suggested is to make sure the content I write is not simply fluff and instead is filled with real information. They also said eventually I should find some 'guest' writers in order to change things up from time to time. Do you have other suggestions for being a successful blog writer?
