Great advice and solid breakdown for blogging. I really enjoyed the suggestion on comparing things and mixing that with stories. It certainly does add some flavor to a piece to show contrasts and break up the over all flow like that.
I also really appreciate your section on sharing personal stories. It’s super easy to share just the facts and nothing more. But what you suggest is solid. Readers get more from a story with life and personality infused in it. They takeaway more from a story.
