How to write an Outstanding Post?
|I was tagged by Terry to address this topic: What is an outstanding post? |
How do you define outstanding?
Is it one that the writer really feels good about, that it just came together and flowed?
Or is it one that generated the most traffic? Or is it one that generated the most comments?
I lean towards the audience determining whether a post is outstanding or not. I think the third part of the audience I wrote about in the Fire Circle Story is the key. From what I have seen, there is no one tool that can tell you what you need to know about your readers today. Persistence in writing will create content that someone will find when they need it. And when they do, you will have succeeded. It may be today, it maybe tomorrow, or months from now.
It maybe that after all is said and done, when your post is found, it may have been because it was the only one left standing. That is negative logic that I don't aspire to. I prefer to align with Terry on taking the optimistic or glass half full approach.
So tell me, what do you think?
Have I ever created an outstanding post for you?
