    You think people care about you as a writer.

    It sounds harsh, but it’s the truth: When people first start out blogging, they think that their audience will be inherently interested in their stories and their interests … but that’s not the case. It’s no knock against them as a person — it’s just that when you’re new, no one is interested in you and your experiences. People care way more about what you can teach them.

    Solution: Show your personality; don’t tell it.

    Blogger Do Not’s

    1. Aggressive sales promotion. Your content should be about your reader, not your brand.
    2. Anonymous authors. Readers want to know who you are, so publish under your byline and add a headshot while you’re at it.
    3. Consistently short posts. Need I say more?
    4. Creating content you hate. Write about things you (and your readers) care about. They’ll appreciate your authenticity and passion.

    that’s how i learn
