Covatar is “premium hand-drawn portraits for a fraction of the cost”, plus they donate to a charity of your choice when you buy one. I got mine as a speaker gift at Microsoft’s Create: Serverless event.

The Key to Blogging Success

Sunday, September 6th, 2020

I watched an interview a few weeks back (at the WordPress.com Growth Summit) with Kristin Smith who has a food blog called Krisp X Kristin. People were thirsty to ask her what the key to blogging success is, and she didn’t hesitate at all with her answer:

Paraphrased, she led into it like: “There are so many sites out there, why would anybody read yours? The answer is in these three things.”

That’s the perfect answer. I have nothing to add.

Perhaps someday I’ll elaborate on how those three things mapped to my own experience.
