They also expect an occasional 'sparkle' of thought provoking insight or perspective casting new light on various but otherwise familiar topics. Most popular blogs seem to excel at this and at a closer glance it seems that this is more an acquired skill than a natural born talent. Remember your blogging platform is simply the 'pulpit' you are using to deliver messages, updates or maintain dialogue on subject matter of interest to both you and your readers.
