I personally love the marriage of a blog post and a personal essay. This marriage gives the reader an “experience” when reading the article. This “experience” keeps the reader’s attention. This “experience” draws the reader in to read your other articles. This “experience” also brands you to your readers.
My blog posts are personal and I work very hard to have a consistent, memorable, relatable voice. I love the statement about the marriage of blog posts and persoanl essays making the “gold.” And that golden space is where I strive to be when writing for my personal blog or for Medium. I try to do this as well with my newspaper articles (they are in the Opinion section of the paper.) I love this post. Thank you for sharing it.
