    Dear Five White.

    I agree that a blog is a great motivation for anyone to read, write and even inspire some people. Blog posts can do a lot, your definitely using PIE which is persuade, inform and entertain whether it be a debating post (persuade), how to take care of a pet post (inform), or a beautiful painting explaining so much( entertain). Blogging really has done a lot for me, every time someone likes, shares, comments or even views my blog i can really feel a great sense of achievement like my blog can actually help someone.

    Kind regards,
    Bella
