Include data in blog posts. It makes the post more interesting and informative to read. It makes people stay longer on your pages and even share your content.
E-commerce bloggers can gradually choose to write curated content from other websites/blogs. That always helps because a buyer will generally not spend much time surfing. He/she will appreciate it if you provide most of what they are looking for.
Spare time to read - Blogging is not just about writing but also about research and reading. Read as much as you can to learn new things and ideas that you can experiment with on your own blog.
