In today’s episode of the ProBlogger podcast, I want to dial back to the basics before we get into more strategic reader-finding missions in future epsiodes.
Today I just want you to ask yourself two simple questions that will get you in the right headspace for further efforts.
I also talk about how I damaged my blog by focusing only on traffic and not on community, the secret ingredients of blogs that can change people’s lives, and my favourite exercised to help you focus on the right reader, not just numbers on a screen.
I promise, it makes all the difference in the world.
Pop over to listen, grab the show notes, and complete today’s challenge. Good luck!

Great post, I want to build my brand, however, I don’t how to build and when can I start to build. And what is my resource given?
Really enjoyed this podcast and I like what you said about building community and taking the reader on journey.
I recently changed the theme of my blog so I wanted to leave a link here for anyone to comment on.
Darren, a nice podcast and honestly speaking, I enjoy your voice, it is perfect for podcasts and audio. I am surprised why it took you so long to start podcasting. In fact, before listening to you, I always thought that Darren must be a proud and arrogant person (apologies for making false beliefs), but after listening to your podcasts, it just appears that you must be a very kind person :))
The topic you touched in your this episode is the crux of the matter (blogging). Hundreds and thousands of blogs just die due to the fact that the blogger does not know his/her readers very well. I agree that it takes time to get grips to this one but it is the experience and sharing by people like you which we should follow and use it as a guideline. I thank you for sharing your valuable experience with us.
