    Hi Amol

    Great info shared!
    # 1 is really very important and holds the key, but here many people falter in identifying their niche.
    # 3 is brilliant, and I feel many great bloggers are doing that, asking the readers what they actually want to read.

    Thanks for sharing these.

    Nice tips for bloggers to focus on and get out of the confusion :)

    The online World is dynamic enough and it’s true we need to aware of what’s going on and stick into our main objectives while adopting with necessary changes :)

    I think reading is the great way to generate more ideas for us instead of researching about stuff alone :) I’ve seen that many bloggers do read a lot and never go out of topics to write about.

    Well, I think scheduling is a GREAT aspect and it depends on how you deal with the blogging and audience mate. Having a specific schedule is easy on your audience too. Especially the reader feedback is something we can’t ignore :) We need to be open for ‘em as much as possible as you implied there and they can inspire us for another post, right? ;) Building a loyal community around our blog matters and it takes lot of efforts too.
