How to blog without killing yourself

As a kind of coda to this week’s series on blog longevity, here’s a nice (and long) video from Tim Ferriss about how to make blogging easy. Lots of good stuff here.

Key points:

  • You don’t have to post every day (he posts two or three times a week)
  • Write your passion – not your focus group
  • Don’t chase topicality (he’s not a journalist though)
  • Make it fun

There’s also loads of material on visitor statistics, making best use of the design of your page and using other platforms such as Twitter. Great stuff.
