What Type of Blog Content Works? Great question with no right or wrong answer.
Over the past 10 years I have written more than 1000 articles here. My intention was to simply create a library of content, a place where I could archive all my discoveries and knowledge regarding technology, social media, apps, websites, and online tools etc. The sole purpose of this site was to share my findings with others.
At one point I was using this site as my own resource so I could find and recall all the different things I had discovered. I still do to this day and it’s been a huge value for that reason alone. When I look back and ask myself if creating a website and blog was worth it, the answer is definitely “YES” without a doubt and with no regrets.
One never knows when creating a site like this what will become of it? What will people find when searching the web? What will they like, what will they not like, what will they share and what will keep them coming back? The answer will remain a mystery until you actually do it, track it, break it down, analyze it and see for yourself?
These are the top articles in the “most viewed” and “most shared” categories.
