Day Four: Identify Your Audience

We often create posts hoping that a specific person (or persons) will see our work.

Who’s your ideal reader?

Remember to include a media element (an image, a video embed, etc.) you haven’t experimented with yet.

Finally, give your post a few tags, including bloggingfundamentals, and publish it.

Writing with a specific person in mind is a great way to focus your thoughts and goals.

Exploring new media elements adds more tools to your storyteller’s toolbox and helps engage your readers.
