  1. Well, my ‘aimless, unprincipled’ blog, which began at the start of the year, is on an irregular schedule – so I’ve failed at step one. So far this year, I’ve written 1–3 blog posts a week, but not on a predictable schedule.

    Then again, my blog is aimless and unprincipled, and the topics of my posts are going to change from time to time in unexpected ways. OK, so I’ve probably failed at step two as well: I’m not great at thinking about my audience. That’s really hard for me to do.

    Well, there’s always step three. If I get a deluge of nasty comments on my blog, I’ll know exactly what to do. In fact, I’ve had plenty of blocking and muting practice on Twitter, so that should come in handy. So far, though, I’ve only had a handful of (nice) comments.

    Thank you for your tips! 🙂

  2. Great tips! I’m lucky and haven’t had to deal with any major trolling, which I suspect is because I’m mostly active on WordPress and less so on social media.

  3. I started my blog in 2014 initially as an online journal. Just recently I have removed over 40 past posts from my blog so that I can streamline the content to a set theme and content. I now stick to a central theme of three topics and centre the blog around those categories. One of these includes autism as a conservative activist.
