Welcome back! I will begin today with the EWAHR newsletter. For those of you who have already signed up, Thank You. The newsletter will be emailed in the first week of each month..

The news letter will include: a review not posted at the EWAHR blog, upcoming topics, special coupons and discounts from my affiliate marketing partners and links to affiliate marketing partners not advertised at the blog.

I would also like to invite followers of the blog to submit a short article (200-400 words) on how you are building your home based business. I will feature 1 submitted article each month in the newsletter. I will also add a link to your website or e-mail. Articles may be submitted at ewahr2011@yahoo.com

Selecting a blog topic can be the toughest task of all when starting a home based online business. There are so many factors going into the equation. Subject, content, webpage, traffic, SEO, audience, advertising, affiliate marketing and the list goes on.

Subject matter to me, is the most important concept. The idea is to create a blog that will have some longevity. If you have been doing this (building an online business) for any length of time, you know it doesn't happen overnight. So, pick a subject that will keep your interest for the next few years.

You will need to add fresh content to your blog at regular intervals. I update my blog daily. This is the only way to keep traffic coming back to your webpage. People won't return to read the same thing they read a month ago.

You don't need to be the world's leading expert on a given subject to write about it in a blog, you just need to relay your perspective.

Subjects literally range from A to Z. It can be animal, mineral or vegetable. For every subject, there is an audience out there dying for more information. You have an opportunity to provide that information.

Hobbies, work experience, musical or artistic talents, opinions, poetry, children's stories, life experiences, relationship advice or just about anything else you can imagine can be used as a blog subject. If you have been employed as a Doctor. Lawyer, Indian chief, Butcher, Baker or Candlestick maker you have blogging material.

Like I have said before, I spent a number of years in manufacturing. I have met 100's of “Experts” (degreed persons) and even more, useful non-experts (those of us with out degrees, who have been doing the same job for 10 years or more) who had more practical knowledge than the “Experts”.

Do not sell yourself short 99ers!! We worked hard for many, many years. The knowledge we have collected over those years is valuable and needed. Whether you know the best cleaning products for mopping tile floors or you can re-build a diesel engine with your eyes closed. You have information other people can use.

Make a list of 10 things you could talk about with your friends or neighbors. Put the items you like the best at the top. Now look at the top 3.

Any of them look like something people would want to read about? Are you passionette about any of them? Could you have a conversation with a friend or neighbor about the subject?

Well then my friend, you have a blog topic.
