What is written without effort is in general read without pleasure.” – Samuel Johnson (18th Century English author, critic, & lexicographer).samuel_johnson.jpg

Are you putting in effort to write your blog posts? Effort in researching content, the way you write it (style) and the value it brings to your readers? Your effort (in writing) is the price you pay to get the joy & satisfaction that you are connecting with your readers. Are you paying the price?
