People pursue blogging for different reasons like make money, improve writing skill, as a hobby or to connect with like-minded people. If you consider your blog as a medium for stress relief and to have fun, it is not essential to ask these listed questions.

If your answer for all the above questions is “YES”, then I am sure that you could meet the monetary benefits with your blog and mint a career out of it soon. If you say “NO” for few or most of the questions, then I would say that it is tough to make your blog posts popular.
