Now many say they love the way i write because i write as though am speaking to my readers, this is because i have tested my work and i know that it’s the writing skill that works for me , my blog and my niche but mind you it may not work well for you the same way and that’s the major reason you are advised to Use your first year of blogging to know what your audience hate and what they love most. in other words try to study your audience within your first blogging year after which you are to stick to what works for you.
