What makes a good blog post
A good blog post, in my personal opinion should be short enough to maintain readers' attention but long enough to establish one's point. Language used should enable easy reading for the target audience, and stay on the subject which interests said audience. For instance, on a baseball blog, do not go off on a tangent about NASCAR or something like that. Maintain the blog's purpose but keep the posts original, avoiding redundancy with prior posts. No one wants to read the same idea expressed in different terms by the same person, but if the blog strays from its original ideas, then its audience will dissolve, as it will still bear the label it was originally given, but will not interest those who take interest in the title.
