First of all, ask yourself, could you take a day off to stray off of the main purpose of your site in order to focus on this effort? For example, if you write about fashion, how would it look if the focus of your post was on starving people?
My answer is, yes, you can make it work. You just need to figure out how.
If your focus is on fashion, answer the question of how does fashion relate to world poverty?
Tips to focus your post on something that may not be blatantly related to your over-all topic.
- You'll need to write down so that you can visualize this, the general topic of your site.
- Mentally imagine five ways that your site can in some way relate to where you want to be, say world poverty.
- Investigate these five ways as if they are leads. Do this by researching credible sites on the web. For example, if you are writing on world poverty, perhaps the World Health Organization would be a good place to start.
- Then look at the other side of the goal, list how your site can relate to your leads.
- This is all a lot easier when you open up your mind to the idea that you can make it happen.
