It’s dependent on many factors (amount of posts, authors, skill set of bloggers), but you can anticipate a 30-90 minute commitment per day to run a successful blog.
  2. Consistency> Unless you are someone like Bono and whatever you do or think will be of interest to people, you will need to pick a general content strategy for your blog.
