I often think that I educate in my posts but not always. I just read a post by Liz at Successful Blog that really brings me back to adding value for blog readers.
Liz says rightly that (and I really paraphrase here) that you need to give more of yourself to your readers and give them a reason to come back. Make them think, force your readers to act and comment, don’t have your readr leave having think that they have learned something instead write so that they are thinking of your posts message later in the day and tomorrow.
The post is great and I have committed myself to rereading the post every day this week so that I am forced to give more of myself in my blogs.
