Make Connections and Engage Readers with Storytelling

Your blog is more than a mouthpiece for your business. It's also a place to share stories – real, human experiences that can help create valuable connections with the people who read your posts.

If you don't have news to report, an event to promote, or something specific you want to get across to your readers, why not take a look in your archives and revisit a solid evergreen article or blog post, giving it some new content to increase engagement with your audience>?

Gamers Highlight the Power of Engaging Niche Audiences

The power of embracing and inspiring a niche audience was illustrated during the weeklong Awesome Games Done Quick, a video game speedrun livestream that benefited the Prevent Cancer Foundation. A speedrun is a form of hardcore gameplay in which players, also called runners, try to beat video games as quickly as possible, through a combination of skill, tricks, cheats and exploits.
