Per your recommendation, I grabbed a pair of those Cerbero tassel loafers and couldn't be happier with my purchase. I think your blog really hits the sweet spot between aspirational and practical advice, and I wish more people followed your lead instead of re-blogging other people's photos or whatever.
I received a relatively simple question from intelligenceismywealth:
Any tips or ideas on how I can improve my blog?
Originally, I started to just type out a few quick pointers, but the more I thought about how I’d answer, I realized it’s actually a much longer and involved answer that deserves some exploration.
A lot of people write about writing (and by extension, blogging, too), and it’s one of those super-meta topics that can be annoying (“TEN TIPS TO IMPROVE YOUR BLOG!” listicles come to mind from “pro-bloggers”) without any sort of depth.
And the topic of writing, generally, is intensely personal. Add to it the platform of blogging and you’re confronted a form of social writing that is also dynamic and aided by visuals and links.
Generally speaking, I think the best blogs all have a few shared elements — in no particular order of importance — that make them stand out above the rest:
- Original content
- Great writing
- Distinctive personality
- Continual persistence
- Simple design
- Be nice
Some expanded thoughts, beyond the jump.
