Recently, Darren at ProBlogger posted:
Identify a reader’s problem (or that of a potential reader) and produce a post that will solve it.
Ultimately this is all about being Useful. Of course being useful takes many forms and the problems that your readers might have could include a large list of things including some like:
- “I’m bored”
- “I want the latest news about….”
- “I want to learn how to….”
- “I want a laugh”
- “I am lonely”
- “I want to improve….”
- “I need a review of….”
- “I need advice about….”
- “I think I’m the only one with the problem of….”
The list goes on and on.
So, what problem can you solve on your blog? (I know my blogging class students are good at solving “I want a laugh”!)
Assignment: Write a blog post that solves a reader’s problem — either one from the list above, or something else you think of — and then come here and give us (in the comments) a link to your post so we can all enjoy it.
