Kimberley Grabas presents 14 Things About Building a Blog Audience That You Think Are True (But Aren’t) posted at Your Writer Platform, saying, “Some well-known ‘truths’ about building a blog audience are like urban legends. If they go unchallenged, the truth becomes ambiguous, or worse, these inaccurate concepts become the conventional wisdom of the day, passed as fact from one rookie blogger to the next. Let’s dispel some of these non-truths, so that you can begin to build a blog audience without folklore getting in the way.”

    As an author and blogger I found this stuff very useful. The 80/20 Rule, creating great content and using 80% of my time promoting it is a nice guide to follow. Thanks!
