It's an honor for someone to come to me for advice on their dream, and it makes me feel like I'm doing something right. But I never feel like I can fully answer the question in the form of an email, so I thought why not compose a post that thoroughly answers all the above questions? I'll try to write this in a way that will be truly helpful to those of you just starting out, the kind of information I would have loved to have my hands on before I got started.

What other advice would you offer new bloggers?
