Strong blogging seems hard to define, yet I know it when I see it. So do readers. Bad blogging quickly affects my pageviews. There will be many ingredients to a successful blog. I shall hazard a guess here at three:
• Strong writing. This seems hard to describe, yet often it is something that comes from the heart. It will be a single thought, not a jumble.
• Strong photographs. My blog suffered recently when my camera went in for repair. People appreciate good photographs.
• Strong timing. If I miss my timing, particularly with my first morning post, readership may momentarily drop by as much as a third.
