Video is becoming more popular content on blogs.
Writing a blog without visuals is like reading a boring newspaper! You should always thrive to become better! By adding videos to your posts you add more value and information to your posts.
We are visual beings and many people (like me!) enjoy watching video more than reading, so i encourage you to start making videos for your content or get the relevant video that will fit perfectly into your post!
Blog posts with 6 -13 word titles attract the highest and most consistent amount of traffic.
Your title matters the most when you’re trying to capture the attention of a reader. Try making it short and sweet. 1-13 words is enough especially when you use the right words to describe your blog post.

Top reasons for U.S. users to unsubscribe from an email subscription are too many emails (69%) and content that is no longer relevant (56%).
I am really all for the niche blogs! I think it’s best to have a blog that focus on a specific niche that trying to be the master of every topic! One of the mistakes i did when i started blogging is to create a blog with no specific niche! You need a vision in order to succeed!
