How to Craft Your Posts?

Years of blogging have taught me that the best posts all share several common features:

  • People don’t enjoy reading general ramblings. People like to read personal stories. They are touched by your by your genuine emotions and by your ability to paint strong clear images of your universal life experience.
  • Your posts should have a practical note to it. Even if not intended, the practical actionable steps will follow from the narrative of the post itself. That is, if it is coming from your heart.
  • Your posts should dig a little bit deeper than what we usually read in generic articles. Think about helping the reader with your unique point of view so that they can understand the world on a much deeper level.
