The blog has been silent around FIVE12 STUDIO. Here’s a little insight as to why (and if it will be back. Spoiler, it will).
Focus on content value over traffic numbers. Developing content your audience connects with will help bring organic traffic to your blog.
Not starting your blog because you don’t have a niche is silly. The best way to find it is to start, niche-less. Let your writing form its own and the audience grow authentically and it will come. If you don’t start, you’ll never grow and you’ll know. So get to it!
