when I think of a blog topic I ask - "Does this support my long-term goals?"

When I think of a blog topic I ask—“Would it be interesting/inspiring/helpful to anybody?” That is probably the main reason I am not successful in blogging though.

 

I thought it was implied that I wanted my blog topics to also be helpful. However, blogging takes a lot of work and if people don't find my blogging topics to have a clear theme - it loses clarity and therefore risks not helping anyone.

I choose to focus on accessibility even though I have plenty of technical interests. This is the one topic I am most passionate about and have the most capacity to help others with. It also supports my long-term goals of being recognized as a subject matter expert on this topic. It's not mutually exclusive, in my opinion.
