Content? What Content?-- 8 Things To Consider Towards Better Content

8. Know that being able to capture the naked authenticity of the human experience is always going to be more captivating than shallow, but still fun, forms of entertainment.
7. Being shallow and fun can satisfy a very real human need.
6. Take time to step away so you can come back to edit your work. The thing your English teacher said about "your best writing is rewriting," is absolutely true.
5. Writing when you are upset is an excellent way of developing a healthy perspective about a frustrating experience--just remember we make more mistakes when we feel emotional about something. See #6.
4. Don't be a lemming--in creative work, robust and quality original material is always far more valuable than formulaic work.
3. If you find something interesting and are passionate about it, you can be assured there are others who find it just as fascinating. Write what you know!
2. Personal attacks, petty criticisms, and jealousies can garner attention, but rarely result in an elevated sense of self-worth or relationships of lasting value.
1. Keep in mind there is always a bigger fish. Being number 1 at anything and comparing yourself to others is an exhausting and lonely endeavor. Just be the best you that you can be, and you will win every single time.

Thank you for always providing great content that is 100% original, Red Elf. I appreciate the effort you put into your wonderful blog.

It's a shame more bloggers don't follow the advice in this post, or emulate the excellent example that your blog provides.

I actually really loved this post.
I might add, that when we can, to not only break up our words into paragraphs that make it easier on the reader's eye, but also to make sure that we place spaces between sentences. In the old days, we used to place two spaces between sentences but nowadays, one is enough, but don't forget that one!

I was advised by some of my older readers that putting the blog posts in slightly larger print is nicer to the reader, also. I don't always, but I think I like to experiment with that.

PS and yes, you and I have a LOT in common. We really SHOULD hang out.
PM me or leave a message in my private mail box and we can exchange off-site information.

The observant make the best lovers,
I may not do right, but I do write,
I have bliss, joy, and happiness in my life,
Kitkat
