If you’re like most busy people, you’re always looking for ways to increase your productivity. If you can find a way to:
* Limit distractions in this distraction-filled world
* Stay focused on a single task at a time

Do you want to create a blog that really makes a difference in the world? It might be tough to find a potential niche, even if your first desire is to help others rather than to realize a profit.

Successful blogging requires a lot of hard work. Anyone can slap up a blog and forget it. If you want to achieve whatever blogging goals you have set, you can’t adopt that attitude. Since blogs are all about engagement, you have to constantly be “out there”, engaging in a conversation with your target audience.
