[Blogging Mindset] Details1 min read

Because I’m not partial to any manufacturer or OS, I do wonder sometimes what is it that makes Apple products so… fascinating.

What makes these products so successful, in the face of so many competitors with remarkable resources and manpower of their own?

Ever wondered about it?

Ever asked yourself why some bloggers get hundreds of comments a week, thousands of likes?

What makes the difference?

Details, my friend. It’s all about the details.

Attention to details is almost magic.

What makes the difference is the fact that when Kevin comments on one of his articles, the successful blogger replies with, “Thank you for your comment, Kevin!

The successful blogger edits blog posts a little bit more than the others, proofreads them a little bit more, and works on formatting a little bit more.

The successful blogger does a little bit more of every single thing you do, and that’s why they’re successful.

A logo. A custom domain. A theme that makes sense.

Details.

Things that most don’t even think about.

It’s Apple’s attention to such details that has turned them into such a huge company.

The beauty of their designs, their obsession with a flawless user experience…

Be honest. How often do you think about your readers? About their experience navigating through your blog. Reading your content.

  1. I think about my readers as I write, as I post, as I read & respond to comments, Cristian. But the hundreds of likes are not forthcoming! I just appreciate the 10 to 40 that I do experience! It’s typically about 1/10 of the visitors each day. Makes me wonder, of course, because I try to apply all your advice. I appreciate you, Cristian. Thanks for always being so inspiring!

  2. Thank you! I’m a write-it-and-post-it-fast blogger. Reason for that is my need for perfection. If I proof read it, I won’t post it because it will never be good enough. I write for my own enjoyment and if somebody else reads my scribblings I’m surprised and happy. I do envy those bloggers who take the time and effort to make their blog visually pleasing and easy to navigate….maybe someday I’ll be one of them. But not quite yet. Right now I’m having too much fun to think about the details.
