What is valuable and relevant content?

From socialmediaslant.com

A couple of days ago, I shared a picture on social networks that showed how much traffic Social Media Slant had received in February 2014. The blog keeps growing steadily and I love letting others know about it. The picture led to a short but interesting conversation with Blogger and Social Media Advocate, Valerie Van Spengen, on Twitter. She and I agreed that the success of a blog (and the brand behind it) depends on the relevancy and value of its content.
Cendrine Marrouat - cendrinemarrouat.com's curator insight, March 13, 2014 4:46 PM

This article is inspired by a recent conversation I had with someone on Twitter. Valuable and relevant content truly depends on your audience, and it's important to keep that in mind when you blog or share content with others.
