Let me start by saying, seeing great stats from your content is great. Most people post on their blog because they want others to read, ‘tweet’, ‘share’ and ‘like’ their work. So of course, it is important to blog with your audience in mind.
But may I suggest that even above this, you should write for yourself.
Write about your interests and write using your voice.
If you want your content to standout from the sea of sameness, be your unique self. By being consistent to who you are, your followers will get to know you and they will respect you too.
Of course it’s important to know who your followers are, what they like and what they will read. But by keeping your posts true to who you are, people will follow you for your unique content and they will keep coming back for more. So, you don’t have to be chained to the stats. The ball is in your court.
What do you think is now important when blogging?
