Writing with a goal to help someone.
Many don’t have this in mind but when you are writing you want to have your readers in mind. You want them to get the most out of your blog and come back for more.
How to do that?
Provide value from day 1.
Help by answering simple questions that people in that specific niche you’re in may have.
What are topics that people are talking about in Facebook groups related to your niche? Qhat about Quora and forums?Create content that will make someone smile and remember you! Click To Tweet
That’s the right way to go about it rather than creating content just to make a living from it.
If you help others, in the long run, they will help you back!
