Neil Stafford says: First of all let me make it clear that success in this area is not about the number of partners you have, but how well they promote your products, make sales and bring in members for you. There are just two things you need to do and they couldn’t be simpler.
How to Write Engaging Blogs People Want to Read
Matt Tuens says:

Thomas Edison famously remarked that genius was “1% inspiration, 99% perspiration.” For bloggers this means that if you put your effort into it, you can create a blog that gathers a following.
