It’s very likely that there are already some well-respected blogs that represent your area of knowledge, and thus competing with strong, existing blogs on exactly the same topics may well prove to be an uphill battle. By choosing a more specific topic, you can make yourself stand out from the crowd and help the depth of your knowledge shine. For example, if you are a Front End Developer, why not make a blog focused only on Python? The possibilities are endless.

When your followers share one of your posts, they are helping you achieve this goal. So as you write each post, ask yourself if the content is interesting and unique enough for it to be shared. If it is, make it easy for people to share by always having your social sharing buttons visible, especially at the top and bottom of the article.
