    They have hired a staff of firmware developers and also mobile/web developers and have trained them and managed them so that they work together as a team to produce IoT solutions that feature connectivity and security.

    I believe that they go on your feet.;) *they help older people to walk

    This is *General Chat* forum. My understanding is that we are allowed on this forum only....to post anything our hearts desire. Chat means to me that we can "chatter" and get away with it. It is precisely due to this that side conversations evolve and take on a life of their own.

    I am grateful that most of the time the mods allow us total freedom on *General Chat*. Not always which I find curious, but most of the time.

    My comment was more about how it might turn into an interesting series of topics regarding the age and related experiences of various technical types and, in fact, how relevant it could be to the thread. ;)

    You are a very good communicator and I 100% got your meaning. I just wanted a chance to encourage the mod(s) to keep allowing side conversations/topics, to organically grow on these *General Chat* threads. I have a strong aversion to the *Off Topic* hammer coming down as it occasionally does, on this particular forum.

    I review lots of "tech blogs" here that are little more than regurgitated info gleaned from google searches and high profile tech sites. The coders aren't coding and the hardware blogs are talking about kit they've never actually used.

    If you want to create a genuinely good tech blog you know your niche inside out, you research the latest issues causing problems, you find ways to bend it to do something unexpected. It takes time to set up performance or seo experiments and run them enough to have meaningful conclusions. And then you have to write.

    Even beginner content takes work. You have to understand the words they'll use when searching for their answers on stuff like should I use if ($a == $b? $c=true : $b = false); Then you have to explain about human readability, speed, and gotchas. If possible you'll provide sample code - or links to your own tests.

    If it's a hardware tech blog you have to show how in Setup A it's fine, but in Setup B it's better/worse.

    If you're able to do all that quickly then I'm damn impressed.

    I think part of the consistency concept is that your loyal followers come to know your posting schedule and visit your site at times when they expect new information to appear.

    The more boring content you have - the less followers you get

    Quora can be a good source of ideas. You can see what are the most popular questions, read the answers and write articles based on this.
    Number two is Reddit which is also very useful. Look for the viral topics. I know, some people even create youtube videos based on top reddit topics.

    Me personally, I would get the future predictions for the tech you are writing about. Use next year (2020) in your next search at your favorite search engine.

    I think it depends on the purpose of the article - as well as the niche. Are you writing it for a tech section on your blog, or is the entire blog about technology period? Is the article going to be displayed in plain-text or will it be formatted for marketing? Is article page static or dynamic? Will there be banner ads around it? Is it original content or reworked copy? The purpose of the article should be established prior to ever composing it. Is it persuasive, educational, research-based, timely, authoritative, unbiased - or just sales copy fluff to fill your blog pages with? I hope this helps? Article purpose brainstorming before writing aids in the process of choosing a topic selection that you would like the article to present on your blog.

    Tesla could be a good tech blog nowadays

    For the likes of us bloggers, Tesla released their first ever model of a truck called "Cybertruck". It could be a great standing point for various topics such as is parts, components, and hidden feats.

    So, after reading all the replies what conclusion have you come to? What's your go-to method when it comes to writing articles?
