Isn’t this an interesting question ? What does matter the most when blogging? If you ask one person perhaps content will be the suggestion. If you ask another they may claim consistency is key to success. If we continue to get different suggestions on what matters most when blogging, then perhaps it’s a matter of perspective.
Perspective plays a big role in our lives everyday. It determines how we react to specific situations, what we like or dislike and perhaps what we would consider to be most important when blogging. Let’s have a look at some of our different blogger types and what we may assume is most important to them when it comes to blogging.

If your goal is to acquire blog traffic and convert it into sales, what’s most important to you as a money maker blogger is making the sale!

If you can accomplish this goal, you would be happy and we can consider this to be what matters most for the money maker blogger.
The Social Blogger

This can be in the form of blog comments, engagement on social media but bottom line this blogger will tell you what matters most is building new relationships and meeting new people.
