First off: Blogging is not for everyone. If you think blogging about the dump you took or about anything in your personal life is going to be of any interest to anyone, you're delusional. You are not Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian, or any other pretentious socialite. (If you are, please toss me a tweet or comment, cuz I'd love a quick jump up to the limelight ;) )
|People that aren't you|
|Hey, at least you're almost doin it right.|
Fourth: Make your life easier. This includes Morning Coffee ; a firefox addon that allows you to set up lists of bloggers you want to open up and read every day, and Reload Every; another firefox addon that allows you to set certain blogs to reload every x minutes. I've used this on everything from NFL draft blogs to friends blogs every couple of hours to see what they've posted without having to check each tab and slam on F5 until new content pops up.
Finally, have fun. If it's not fun, it's not worth the effort you have to put in.
