Rarely now.

The fear of seeing our stats drop and our existence slip away into the mass...

Let’s face it. We can never get enough blog topics.

As much as we think we found them all, new ones pop up and make us struggle with the right choice. Literally, there are so many of them that they leave every blogger doubting and even scared of all that chaos.

You always need topics to write about. Topics that will wow all readers and keep them coming back to you and your blog. They could be in any niche and target any audience. What matters is that you center your whole writing on them. Think you can do that, yet you don’t know which topics to use?

Ivana Kitanovic

You’ve published multiple posts on your blog and updated all social media platforms, but now what? You still sit before your screen. Nothing is changed. Or is it?

Blogging is like that. You ask yourself a million questions you don’t know the answers to and yet you still keep on writing and writing. The real trouble here is whether what you’re doing is truly worth it. Do you write posts only for yourself or someone actually comes to your blog and reads them? The little comments or subscribes you get cannot possibly be the judge of that. Instead, you need a little help.
