Is this a post where I get straight to the point?
Yes it is.
1. Think long & hard about your blog categories.
Your categories are the main sections or “magazine columns” that you feature on your blog. They should appeal to your target audience. They should be logical for you. You should like talking about them.

And by that, I of course mean: pretend you’re an actual magazine publisher and plan out each piece well, invest time into each piece, edit and format your posts, add great designs to your posts, write in a natural tone your readers will be drawn to, and publish regularly. If your favorite magazine missed a few issues, you’d eventually find a replacement. If you aren’t blogging regularly, your readers might find some replacements. HarshTruthsAboutBloggingLife.com
