I’ve been running a news/fan blog for about 4 months now and it’s going really well (i.e., it’s making money), so I figure it’s high time I shared the things that have worked well for me so far.

I agree about the schedule. In fact, I tend to believe that no schedule is the best schedule. Although some people need a schedule to keep disciplined, you should write when yo have something to say (which might not be every hour, every day or once a week).

Just as important to write about a topic that the interests you, you should write about something that you are inspired to write about. When it comes to “news”, both the availability of topics and the likelihood of inspiration are likely dictated by others who are making the news.

Hi Tristan, this is great advice, I think what you said about finding a niche is the most important piece at the start. That's the one bit that you can go back and fix later. Thanks for sharing here on BizSugar, Niall
