How to Stalk and Create a Blog Audience Through Empathy

How to Stalk and Create a Blog Audience Through Empathy | Social Media, Memetics, and Cognitve Science | Scoop.it

You want to be an influential blogger.

You need to be one because you have important ideas.

You are as intelligent as other bloggers, and you have a lot to share with the world.

You are smart, innovative, and sociable, and you convey this through the language you carefully write.

You have these great qualities, but they won't do any good if you do not connect with your audience.

Without an audience, your writing only benefits you.

The way to develop a faithful blog community is to know your readers and empathize with them.
