  1. Oscar,

    These tips of yours are so true…However, if you ask me to select only one, I’ll go with quality content.

    You see, there are some sites that really have poor designs, horrible loading speeds etc. In fact, all that can go wrong with a site is already wrong with them…yet I visit them daily because they’ve got something to share that is of importance to me.

    Keep writing excellently like you do – for you’re one blogger I always visit . And believe me, always learn a thing or two.

  2. HI Oscar,

    You kept sharing bomb and viral post here on your blog. That’s good!

    I agree with all of your stated point as they are all valid ones and ones that I actually resonated with.

    Like I used to say, your niche is your purpose and just like in real life if yo don’t know what your purpose is or are you will never attain success at all in life’s endeavour.

    Finding your style and knowing your voice is another key point you stated and I believe it’s also very critical, it’s what distinguishes you from the rest of the packs, that is, bloggers and uniqueness is the key of being successful.

    Nice post brother!

  3. Quality contents and Good design really matters a lot. It will be hard for a visitor to come back to a blog after he/she read 3 to 4 posts without grabbing something OR a reader having difficulty in navigating to other post.
    Thanks for the share here. More grease to your elbow and thumb 😉
