I'm lazy and didn't make this but it might be useful for finding some good reads. I wrote a similar post last year.
Most people at some time or other consider making a blog. Either they have a topic they are passionate about, want to make money, or need to promote a business, service or themselves. It is actually an easy question to answer. Just check these basic criteria against your topic or blog idea. Trust me, it is better to think about this now and not two years and thousands of hours or work down the road, when you have nothing to show for it.
Crowded niches can be extremely difficult to get started in but also happen to be the most interesting and most lucrative. Whether you have a passion and want to write about it, have a business in a crowded niche you need to promote, or simply want to make money, it takes lots of time and persistence but it can be done.
I am always on the lookout for good new blogs or those with great content that I haven't seen before. In the web design field it seems like a handful of the larger blogs can drown out the voice of the little guys who many time have better things to say. So here are some of the smaller blogs that have great content that you should follow.
I've been spending all kinds of time both writing posts and reading other people's blogs. I've found that headings can make or break a good blog post. The title brings the reader in but it isn't until after reading the first couple headings when the reader can decide if the post is worth their time or not. Which is possibly why some bloggers tend not to use heading at all. I'm going to lay out what works in some types of posts, and why the opposite may be true in others.
