Blogging For Beginners Commandments

Newbie bloggers often struggle to get their first readers and turning their blog into a profitable business. Being a good blogger consists of more than good writing skills, so most writers have a lot of questions when they start. Should your blog posts be optimized for search engines or for your readers? How long should the posts be and how frequent should you publish them? Is it better to choose a specific niche or dance around a few different topics?
All these questions often scare people off before they even start a blog. Trust me, blogging is not as scary as it sounds.
