You need a marketing plan
You got to have one; you have to figure out how you are going to promote your blog and how you are going to get it in front of your ideal readers. You have to set aside time for marketing and promotion. I notice some people are already feeling overwhelmed by the amount of time they have to put into their blog to make it what they want it to be. But they have to set aside for promotion and marketing. Obviously, this should not be the majority of the time but percentage of the time so that you won’t spend all your time on marketing and promotion.
