Once you let go of what your blog should be and just let it be what it wants to be, you free a floodgate of creativity.
When you blog a certain way because other people do it like that, you diminish your potential. It shrinks from you.
But if you learn from others and then adapt your blog to your own style, voice, and intuition, you expand your potential. It becomes limitless.
Content is king, yes. But honesty is the queen, baby.
