Keep in mind the fact that something has been achieved and put in more work to attain the rest.
3. Understand your audience
It is significant to also know and understand your audience. If your target audience is not specified, you will just be covering broad topics which won’t get you your desired attention. Having a target audience and knowing what gets their attention brings them in contact with your content thereby reducing the chances of losing them to other bloggers.
