Not only will people enjoy your posts more, but they’ll be able to identify you just by reading your content.
2. Don’t Be Afraid To Talk About Serious Subjects

You can talk about the major brands of smoking products such as Marlboro or Vape Wild and discuss tips moms can use to ensure their children don’t use those products until they are old enough to make their own choices.
3. Get To Know Your Readers
Just as your readers will get to know you through your unique voice, so should you try and get to know them. Don’t treat your readers as a demographic or an audience. Treat them as actual people.
The good news is there are a variety of ways you can get to know your readers, such as responding to questions and compliments on the comments section of your posts, hosting live stream Q&A’s and directly answering questions, or sending personalized messages to your email subscribers.

Rather than choose random days, set a specific schedule, such as writing a new post every week, every Monday and Friday, or whatever suits you. This will not only make you more organized in your blogging efforts, it will make you more focused as well.
