If you blog for very long, one thing you will hear from the pundits is, “content is king”. That is, you must have something that people want to hear, see, read or link to. The way that this becomes painfully obvious is how quickly your latest post can enjoy great success and then suddenly it’s gone. What happened? With fifty million blogs and counting you must be compelling to stay on the radar.
Really it comes down to how things are picked up in other forms of media. Viewer popularity and brand recognition! The more things change the more they stay the same.
