Don't take it too seriously
DtP explained the sausage factory that is big-league blogging in a series of entertaining posts. He's only partly kidding, methinks.
Sample tip on building your blog persona:
"By now it should be obvious that the last thing you want to do is present yourself honestly to your audience. One of the keys to blogging for big cash is to convince your audience that you are what they would want to be, if they could be someone other than the loser they are. You cannot do this by being open and honest about yourself: Not that many people want to look like Buddy Hackett, sound like Curly Howard, think like Britney Spears and write like Sean Penn.
"Remember: If you were a city, you’d be Cleveland."
Okay, enough of that. Gotta run to the yacht club now for the christening of my new boat.
