When I read posts on how to create content for your blog, most of the bloggers suggest creating your ideal reader to help you pump out content. And that got me thinking, how does my ideal reader look like?
I must admit, the thought of creating an imaginative person who would like to read my posts, intimated me. Where do I begin? How old is she or he? What are her or his hobbies? If I created this ‘person’, would they really stick around to read my blog? So I left the whole idea of ‘the ideal reader’.
But one day, when I thought about what content I can create, ‘the ideal reader’ idea popped up again. Suddenly it dawned on me… the person who would find my content interesting would probably have the same interests as me! Someone who I would love to hang out with at a coffee bar and chat about all-the-things!!
My ideal reader…
So, let me introduce you to Viccy. She is a romantic at heart and love to hang out in her favourite coffee shop with a friend. Viccy has impeccable personal style and loves a well-organized home. Her interests include everything that a classy lady would love. For example, beauty, fashion, self-care, entertaining her friends, homemaking and decorating. And don’t forget about baking!
She just got married to the love of her life and is in the transitioning stage of living on her own to now living with her husband. She is learning what it means to be a wife and has started to change their house into a home. A more healthy lifestyle has become more important to her recently, and she wants to incorporate it into both her and her husband’s life and their home.
Things she is frustrated with at the moment include: finding new routines for cleaning, cooking, the ever-expanding laundry pile, keeping up with her husband and still find time to do the things she loves! Above all, hubby doesn’t agree with her decor decisions, which he never had a problem with?!
Oh, and did I mention that she loves coffee?
Finally, I must say, creating Viccy helped tremendously! If you are a blogger, I would love to hear from you! Did you also create an ‘ideal reader’? Did it help you with creating content?
