    • 48. • Have you stopped to consider the cultural colloquiums and references you make in your blog writing which are country, region, or age specific?• If you are writing for a very specific audience, then use terms and phrases they will recognize and identify with. Identifiable cultural colloquialisms connect people. When they understand the reference, you hold their attention and can move forward with the subject matter. There is no confusion.• Still, watch for colloquial phrases and asides that don’t add to your blog writing. We often throw in metaphors and similes that don’t add to the content but stylize it.http://www.blogherald.com/2007/05/04/are-you-really-writing-for-your-blog-audience/
