I was recently asked, "How do you write an outstanding blog post?" Tough question. However, once I get beyond the initial flippant reactions of:
- Why are you asking me?
- I wish I knew!
- If I knew the answer to that I would have done it already.
I find it really is something worth thinking about. Since I've started blogging back in October of last year I've made over 100 posts. Some have been pretty lame, some pretty good but not popular, some popular but not all that good (in my opinion) and a few that were pretty good and popular. Although I believe some are pretty good and that I'm getting better at this I'm not quite ready to call any outstanding yet. (I love a challenge.)
So what does makes a post outstanding? For me it has 2 elements.
