Writing is all about branding yourself well. Besides the quality of your writing, it’s how you present yourself as a blogger. Branding is presenting yourself well on all social media platforms.

Before reading your blog or maybe after reading one, people tend to move to the About the author page. Readers are eager to know the person behind the writings. So, you ought to write a beautiful and impressive one. Write your life’s story and make it as personal as you can. 

  1. Try to optimise your blog using SEO techniques
