Choose something you're passionate about.
Have a clearly definable point of view. Think about daytime AM radio:
  • Rush Lindbaugh: neo-conservative
  • Dave Ramsey: get out of debt
  • Clark Howard: smart money
  • All Things Considered: All things we wish you were interested in
The #1 rule of radio: if you aren't having fun, neither is your audience.
Your first 10 blog posts are what will establish you as an expert. Plan them carefully.
