Making a blog successful on the internet takes a lot of hard work and persistence. Sometimes it could take you several months to popularize it and generate any monetary gain and even longer before it can give you a full-time income to replace your existing source of income. It is very important to establish yourself as a brand and build a reputation and this requires hard work, time and planning.

In this article, I am sharing some of the tips which I believe will help in making a blog successful and popular.
