Top 1 Tip For Creating a Successful Blog

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2008

First of all, I understand that successful blogging means different things to different people. Some think a successful blog is one that has allot of traffic and readers. Some think that a successful blog is one that makes allot of money. Either way, a successful blog is one that has allot of traffic and allot of readers.

I’ve read many different accounts on what makes for successful blogging. I was always very interested in what made a blog succeed, and most importantly what made them lucrative. I’ve been at this for over 5 years now, and I have finally succeeded in bringing a blog up to a high traffic level, and making it very lucrative.

Dear Terry,

Transparency and engagement are priorities for the Obama-Biden Transition Project. Our success depends on not only opening up a process that has historically been inaccessible to most Americans, but also encouraging citizen participation.

Last week, we took an important step towards these goals by asking the public to participate in a discussion about health care on our website.

The result was fantastic. Started by a question from our Health Policy Team, thousands of comments poured in over a few days. Some people answered the initial question, but others engaged with one another debating and developing new ideas and approaches to health care reform.

Members of our Health Policy Team, including former Senator Tom Daschle, read through these comments over Thanksgiving weekend.

Yesterday, they sat down to record a special video response. Watch it and join the discussion:

This is just the beginning. These discussions are a valuable resource for Transition staff and an important way to ensure that everyone has a voice in the process.

Thank you,


John D. Podesta
