Just what is the perfect post? It’s several things really… things like subject matter, attention to detail, length, how well you convey your message, and so on. I’m not really even sure if it can be done, I don’t think I’ve personally ever written the perfect post, I’ve read about it, but have yet to find it.
I think that as long as you put you heart into it and your happy with your work then it just may be the perfect post. If you can take something that is not easy or even fun to do and make it sound easy and interesting then you may have what it takes to write the perfect post.
I however don’t have those skills, I get ahead of myself and even leave things out. Then again that’s one of the great things about having your own blog, nothing is set in stone and it all can be changed. I really like how easy WordPress makes it to edit your past posts.
I’m never really truly happy with any of my work, and will go back and read over some of my past work. I will then change it if I see something wrong or maybe even delete the whole thing. Also the perfect post is one that doesn’t try to do all the work on its own, it uses other resources and is not afraid to send people to another site for more information.
I have a couple dozen posts that have been in the draft stage for months, because I don’t feel like they are good enough to be published. You don’t always need pictures or video in your posts to make them perfect, just like you don’t have to try to sell something with every post… hey don’t look at those AdSense ads they appear everywhere because of an plugin.
I could go on and on about stuff that is way to hard to achieve, what really matters is if you are happy with it and others don’t tell you how much it sucks then you can tell yourself that you have written a post that is as close to perfect as you can get… then you see that you’ve misspelled four or five words and you used four or five ands in a sentence and stuff like that lol.
