    1. A niche(Health, Beauty, Fashion, Fitness 'etc').
    2. A framework(Wordpress, Blogger, tumblr 'etc').
    3. A domain name(Preferably the three popular extensions).
    4. A host(do a google search for hosting providers, and for each host you shortlist, read ten 5 star reviews, thirty 2-3 star reviews and ten 1 star reviews).
    5. Good content(content is king).
    6. Commitment(2-3 posts per week).
    7. Time
    8. Originality(why should anyone read your posts over someone else's?)
    9. Creativity(be interesting).
    10. Patience(6 months- x number of years).


    Good Luck!

    Everyone is going to chime in with good suggestions OP, but I'd suggest to stick to Juhan's suggestions as they are organized. It wouldn't be good if you get overloaded trying to listen to everybody.

    Great posting. I agree with all of these. If you have all 10 of these then you will have a good blog!

    That's a great list, though I agree with Zwielicht. If there are a million blogs in your niche, you have to have something unique to say to stand out from the crowd.

    To add to all that...make sure your blog is interactive and you have a good promotion model in mind.
