It is indeed hard to pin point one particular factor that makes blog big.
If you notice successful blogs you will find that there’s one thing that stands true, and that is it takes time.
You will have to wait and exercise patience. It’s very rare that blogs run away with success within a month or two, unless, perhaps, you decide to sell it off.

Choosing the right niche
Some niches do work for someone, and may not work for others. This one is really hard to figure out as why some of these niches work so well for someone, while others struggle to handle blogs from the same niche. It could be your knowledge. If you have gained knowledge through your experience on a certain niche, then that niche will work for you.
For instance, a person from a finance background will be in a better position to develop a finance blog. Simply because he knows how things work in the field of finance. He can create pieces, edit pieces, and post pieces that will help his blog to grow. Now someone from a non finance background won’t be able to maintain a finance blog on a certain level.
Experimenting with different monetization methods
The biggest hurdle that makes blog crumble is not being able to earn enough. If you try to monetize your blog through a certain method, say selling space for banners, and if it doesn’t work then you should find another way, and see if it works for you. You keep on trying till you find a way to earn substantial sum. If banners don’t work, try adsense, and if that doesn’t work, try sponsored posting.
The best thing you can do is keeping on trying different channels to monetize your blog. That is something successful blogs do to find what is working for them.
Come up with new content ideas
It’s difficult to start with. Finding great content is not always easy. Blog owners pay good cash for great content. If you can handle this, if you can develop great ideas, or hire someone to get significant blogging ideas, then you are definitely on your way to make your blog a successful one.
