I found this topic at Performancing. After trying to understand how to become a successful, there are plenty of stuff that I need to keep on focusing on. Let's see what a solo blogger needs to be in order to become successful:
  • Entrepreneur - the ideas, the vision, motivation and drive
  • Salesperson - brings in the advertising, sponsorships, does the deals
  • Bookkeeper - keeps the numbers in check
  • Editor - controls the output, checks and amends for quality, final decision on topics
  • Researcher - investigates stories and information for articles, gathers facts
  • Writer - does the actual writing, possibly based on the researchers gathered materials
  • Designer - keeps the blog looking great, formats posts so they look their best
  • Organiser - admin, project management, to-do lists, calendars, diaries ...
  • Tech Support - backups, fixes things when they go wrong, hosting, software upgrades, modules, ad serving ...
  • Mentor - impartial wisdom and advice, been there got the t-shirt
  • Network manager - for when the enterprise grows from one blog to many, someone needs to run the farm
Oh my god, that is so many things to look after and also, very technical. However, I am up to the challenge as I've experience doing all those role since I first landed my feet on an employment payroll. All of the above is very challenging and requires dedication to get it done. If you are half-hearted, then it wouldn't turn out to be great. However, if you have the 'dough', then you can always leverage it out to other people.

In the end, it's all about your personal success and only you alone can determine where you want to be.
