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:
Consistency, Confidence, and Authenticity
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.
