Nice thread. I would add:
1. Build for tomorrow, if you want instant results you will get frustrated.
2. Post a clear disclaimer about your content regarding copyrights and scrapping, and make it visible (link)
Why? there are gazillion [can't-say-names] building their sites with YOUR content. I don't mean stealing, it's about the new wiki-widgets, free websites built with someone else content and given away for free. So you have a "story of widgets" sure there is a wiki for that who will come after your content. Also the new "I'm building an APP for Android - IOS", those free guides built with your content. It's a new wave.
