Each section features an image and three questions. The “Author” section features an image depicting multiple people (three) and the following three questions: Who are you? Who do you want to be? And what style will you use to get there? The “Audience” section features an image depicting a larger group of people (five) and the following three questions: Who is your audience? What are you hoping to achieve with them? And how will you do it? The “Post” section features an image depicting a blog post and the following three questions: How does form accomplish your purpose? How does platform accomplish your purpose? And how does promotion accomplish your purpose? The infographic uses a combination of White and Spartan Green font and background colors.
