Exceptionally well-written blog on what it takes to be a top-notch blogger, courtesy of Marya at Writing Happiness.
Explores consistency, passion, time-management, relationships (with other bloggers; not the wine, dancefloor and breeding kind) and persistency.
Which brings me on to the following superb quote, also included therein:
"Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan “Press On” has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.” – Calvin Coolidge
