It doesn’t matter if you use WordPress, Blogger or TypePad. It doesn’t matter if you are an industry thought leader or a virtual unknown. As long as you have the ambition to post often, the ability to stick with it, and can be patient, you’ll be successful in time.
Yes, there are other things that can help make your blog successful but if you don’t put forth the effort to create good content in the first place, all the tools and plugins in the world won’t do you any good.
