Content is king. Illustrations are like Jesters.

I am often asked what makes a successful blog, but I rarely answer that question, because I don't want just anyone to be able to replicate the Talent Free website I have created.

Well now I feel confident enough to confide in you, dear reader just what does make a successful blog. Firstly it's very important to identify your audience, but how do you do that, when you don't have an  audience, or don't know who your audience is. I would say to any blog author that there are some simple steps you can take to identify who are your audience and what do they want. This can be achieved by taking note of whole leaves comments on your blog or website and perhaps visiting their blog or website to see what sort of person they are and what sort of content you think they would like to read.

Content is very important. There's no use in providing excellent articles on something very intelligent, such as the physics of quorn, if your core readers are mud stupid for instance. Assuming that your readers are just a little intelligent (like this blog) then you can provide articles that get good Google rankings, and that real people will find interesting.

Clicking knees often prevent me from sitting at my desk for too long, so I'm going to have to leave this article there, but I think I've given you enough of a start to start writing excellent content for your blog, website or weblog.


  1. Well, Leonard, I've come to the conclusion that there are lots of ingredients for a successful blog: pictures, lots of them, especially rude ones. And problems, embarrassing ones, ones that give the reader a nice, warm fuzzy feeling because they're not a complete wanker like the poor sod posing the problem.

    If your content is sufficiently perverted, you can guarantee you'll get a whole army of cyberstalkers whose presence you can track online by means of a common or garden Statstracker!

  2. I was thinking of introducing some talent free soft porn to the mix as it happens. Perhaps a nice caricature of a famous film actress to start things of with, showing her shaved Magenta, complete with stubble maybe?

    I've probably already said too much and now will be sued by that mad old witch that likes to follow me around cyber space.
