  3. In fact, there are many ways to build a successful blog. However, just like your wrote in this post, in my opinion, regularly updated is the biggest influence to the success of a blog. Blogger need to have enough enthusiasm and perseverance to keep writing. This is not a easy work. That is why most of the companies ignore this point and led to the abandoned blog.

    • I agree with your point! Regularly updating is one of most important factor in the success of a blog, but it sometime is not easy to practice well. There could be no new article on a blog for a while because Bloggers might have been busy with other work during that period. This is a potential problem which bloggers should deal with.
