Blogging Basics: The Best Types of Posts to Have on Your New Blog

You keep asking yourself the same question over and over again –

Why isn’t anyone coming to my blog and sharing my content?

Do you know the recipe to grow your blog? The first ingredient is to have a big heaping of irresistible content for your audience to devour. Here are the BEST types of blog posts you should have on your blog to globs of traffic.

You may be thinking that being a mommy blogger just isn’t your thing anymore. And you know what? Most mom blogs fail anyways.

I know, that totally sucks. And you want to know the reason why?

It’s because no one knows your mom blog exists!

My new blog generates over 20,000 pageviews a month, and it’s only four months old. This isn’t crazy high, but compared to my other personal blog that I’ve been blogging on for almost two years with around 10,000 pageviews, it’s dang amazing.

Starting TwinsMommy made me realize there’s a recipe to growing your blog.

You need:

  • A heaping tablespoon of a strong blog platform
  • A cup of a promotional strategy
  • A plateful of oh-so-yummy sticky content

That’s it. If you have those in place, your blog will grow.

But, wait? Do you have a blog?

If you’re reading this and don’t have a blog, but want to start one, I have an easy step-by-step tutorial on how to start a blog!

So, let’s tackle the very first ingredient – irresistible content. I already talked about some of this in my other Blogging Basics post. For this post, we are specifically going to tackle the types of posts you need to have on your new blog.

Why Every New Blogger Needs to Have These Types of Blog Posts


Before you started your blog, did you ask yourself why you wanted to blog in the first place?

Was it because you wanted to meet and network with other mama bloggers in your niche?

Was it because you wanted to earn some side income as a stay-at-home mom?

Maybe it was because you just wanted to write about your passions.

Now, if you want to really make your blog a success and actually earn an income from blogging, there’s something your blog has to do.

Your blog has to help others with some sort of transition.

What the heck does this mean? It means that your blog shouldn’t only inspire your readers; it should educate and inform people. And by doing this, you are actually helping them transition into something better.

For example, Twins Mommy helps moms become mompreneurs. My posts are helping you grow your blog’s traffic, income and followers so that you can achieve that mompreneur status.

And you can do that with specific blog posts.

Yes, you! If you’re a new blogger you need to start churning out these specific types of posts right away. Here are the 10 essential types of blog posts you should have on your new blog like yesterday.

1. The Round Up Post


50 Comments | 4.5k Shares

Round up posts are amazing for traffic, comments and shares. A round up is basically a list of items, people, ideas, strategies, tips etc.. all bundled up in a great blog post.

The bigger the round up, the better it will do on social media for sharing and commenting. My post on 12 Mama Bosses Tell You How They Monetize Their Blog is a post that tells other mom bloggers how to monetize their blog.

I have several other round up posts on Twins Mommy that have all done well. In fact, the month that I decided to actually grow my blog was the month where I wrote three round ups, which totally helped me grow my blog.

2. The List Post

supercharge-productivity-fb68 Comments | 4.4k Shares

List posts are super popular on social media. And yes, round ups and resource posts are also list posts. When you can give people a lot of tips in one giant blog post, it saves them time, which becomes highly valuable for moms and other bloggers who don’t have much time to start out with.

My post on 26 Ways to Supercharge Your Productivity as a Mommy Blogger is my longest post on this blog. It’s over 4k words! Yikes. Even if it might take a few minutes to read, visitors aren’t bouncing away from this blog post.

They are using their precious time to read this highly valuable post. So, doing a list post can totally help hook your readers into reading every post on your blog.

3. The Secrets Post

sales-page-fb14 Comments | 3.3k Shares

Having a secrets post can do awesome on social media. While my post on The Secret To Make Your Sales Page Convert Like a Boss didn’t do too well with comments, it’s still one of my popular posts on the blog.

Why? Because people like gossip! If you can offer readers some tried and true tips that you keep under wraps, your post will be that more valuable to them.

This type of post also makes for a great headline too! Any headline on Pinterest with, “secret,” “one thing” or “this way” always gets me!

4. An Opinion Post

why-need-gravatar194 Comments | 3.5k Shares

I know, my post on Why Every Blogger Needs a Gravatar (And How to Set One Up) isn’t entirely an opinion piece, but posts where you can adamantly make a claim or suggest a strategy often kicks ass online.

People want to know why you believe in that topic or why they should listen to you. If you can make your post provide convincing copy, then those visitors will be hooked on your blog and what you have to say!

It’s an easy way to grow a tribe of followers because they like YOU and YOUR opinions.

5. How To Posts

chores-business-fb30 Comments | 7.1k Shares

I don’t know about you, but I’m drawn to How-To headlines. You know why? Because it’s perceived as highly valuable. You’re learning something new.

If you’re struggling with something and suddenly you find a post that tells you how to fix it, wouldn’t you read it?

How-to posts are by far the most popular type of posts you can have on your blog. So go ahead, and exploit this blog post type.

6. Traffic and Income Reports

month-2-blog-update-fb88 Comments | 6.6k Shares

One thing I did new on this blog versus my other blog is share my blog growth strategy. Sharing your blog growth and income report is popular with a lot of bloggers like Pat Flynn or Pinch of Yum for example.

Readers want to see how you’re building your blogging empire. They also want to see if you fail too. People want to learn from you and if you can share your successes as well as your challenges and failures, you’ll forever have a strong and loyal group of people following you.

7. Tools Post


17 Comments | 4.9k Shares

I wrote this post before I started growing my blog. My first few blog posts also were targeting a different audience – work-at-home moms (my brand also wasn’t sorted out either).

This post was the first that hit 100 pins on my site.

I was ecstatic.

*Happy dance*

People L-O-V-E tools posts. And bloggers know this. They have tools posts on their blog or they use this as one of their lead magnets.

It’s probably so popular because you can add your affiliate links to these posts. Of course, when I wrote this post, I didn’t know that. But I do now. 🙂

8. A Blog Series


27 Comments | 893 Shares

Two months into this new blog and I was already feeling a bit overwhelmed.

See, I also have a freelance writing blog where I write weekly blog posts as well as write blog posts for my freelance writing clients.

On top of this, I was also writing content upgrades for this blog and two newsletters a week.

I was up to my eyebrows in content and I was slowly getting burnt out.

So, instead of not writing on any of my blogs, I decided to do a blog series. Doing a series is awesome because it sort of gives you automatic content to write about. You just break it up into little blog posts.

This blog post is part of my Blogging Basics series.

But you can do any series you want depending on your niche. For example, if you have a lifestyle blog you can do a blog series on turning your clothes in your closet into a capsule wardrobe. If you have a DIY blog, you can run a blogging series on creating DIY furniture for each room of the house.

The list could go on.

9. Offer Unique Tips


74 Comments | 1.9k Shares

You know how to generate hundreds of comments? Offer a unique tip. I have two blog posts that fit this bill and together they have generated almost 200 comments.

I know!

People crave new and unique tips and strategies. We all read the same dribble every day so when visitors find your post that actually tells them something they’ve never heard about you start to get comments like this:


People value your tips if it’s easy and helpful.

So, if you are doing something unique with your blogging, WordPress, Squarespace, Pinterest strategy or anything that would help out your target audience, let them know about it!

10. Resource Post

mompreneur-list64 Comments | 3.2k Shares

It’s always a good thing to give back to your readers. I always love to feature other bloggers on my blog. You know why?

Because when you feature someone and their blog, they are more likely to share your post and comment on your post.

Networking should be part of your promotional strategy because without networking you’ll have a hard time trying to grow your blog.

So start visiting other bloggers in your niche and start linking to their posts and even feature them in a resource post. A resource post is a list of curated content. My Epic List of Blogs Mompreneurs Should Devour Right Now is a resource list of the best blogs you should read.

It will be updated as I learn about more blogs that I feel would help out my target audience.

Start Pumping Out Blog Posts

These ten blog posts can help your new blog grow like wildfire. Of course, just writing them isn’t enough. You do have to promote your content. But that’s another post for later!

I hope you’re enjoying my Blogging Basics series. Be on the lookout for more topics to help the newbie blogger navigate this beast we call blogging!

Tell me your favorite type of blog post you like to write on your blog.

Thisbis an amazing post! Listicles are my favourite, but I have a really amazing round up post that I need to get out there to the world! I am inspired ☺Reply to Samantha
Hi Samantha, That’s great to hear! Have fun with your roundup post!Reply to Elna
This post is SO helpful! I’m a new mommy blogger (well, WE are two mom bloggers), and I love your ideas. I have a question about #10 The Resource Post. Would you contact each of the mommy bloggers before you post a blog like this and let them know you’re going to feature them, or just do it and let them organically find it?Reply to Avery
Hi Avery, Love your blog name! For the resource post, if you want to focus on other bloggers, then yes, contact them AFTER you publish the post. If you want them to contribute then contact them before. I had to do this for this post: But, if you want to round up the best editing tools or social platforms or books or toys or whatever, you don’t need permission to feature those.Reply to Elna
Thank you for the great ideas! It gave me a lot of ideas! I’m new to mommy blogging and wondering how I can find other new mommy bloggers to network with?Reply to Emily
Hi Emily, So glad you enjoyed these blog post ideas! Feel free to join my Facebook group for other mom bloggers. You can network there: to Elna
It’s a wonderful read. Thanks Elna. I have just started a Parenting blog a couple of months ago and the Types of Post to have in one’s Blog is an eye opener!Reply to Vaishnavi
Hi, How cool! So glad you found this article on blog post ideas helpful! Have fun blogging!Reply to Elna
Hey, Elna, I just read your blog and it inspired me and helped me too. I started blogging now and I posted a movie list to watch as you said earlier that LIST TO blog ideas actually works. So looking forward to your new blogs. Keep it up.Reply to Alisha
Hi Alisha, That’s great to hear! Good luck!Reply to Elna
These are some super helpful tips Elna! Thanks for sharing! Epifania // http://www.femaleblogpreneur.comReply to Epifania
this post is informative but it is written mainly for the already experienced bloggers who have sound knowledge about blogging. this is not beginner friendly at all.Reply to sri
Hi Sri, I’m sorry you felt this way after reading this post. As the post implied, it’s a post about different types of blog posts you can write on your blog. I think all of them are relevant for new bloggers except the income report blog topic. That I know you will have to blog for a while and start some monetization strategy to talk about an income report on your blog, but the others ones like a list post or resource post or How To can be written from a beginner blogger 🙂 I don’t want you to be discouraged about those types of topics! Take it one day at a time 🙂Reply to Elna
This blog post is really helpful. I have learnt so much about blogging from this post. I am not a blogger yet but I hope soon i will start my blog.Reply to Labonita
I learnt so much in this post! I was only writing How-to posts. I was wondering why I always see income reports and wondered what was the purpose of that. Now I know the secrets. Hope one day soon I can have some success, I will work on these 10 types of posts. As a newbie, can I start a round-up post and feature other more successful bloggers like yourself and how I learnt from each and every one?Reply to Bee
Hi Bee! That’s great to hear! Glad you found other types of blog posts to write to gain more blog traffic! Yes, you can definitely write a round up post featuring other mom bloggers! Thanks so much for considering me! Tag me or email me when you have it published and I’ll be happy to share it!Reply to Elna
Thank you so much for writing this post. I needed it.Reply to Debbie
Hi Debbie! You’re welcome! Glad you found the right blog posts to write!Reply to Elna
This is one of the best posts I’ve come across. I loved how you have structured content ideas. Will definitely refer and re refer this article.Reply to Siddhika
I am amazed at your level of detail Elna. I’ve been looking for a new generation of bloggers and found your content very valuable, especially in search of filling Pinterest learning gaps. For finding new ways and techniques that works for most people. While am about to launch my blogging journey at – I felt Pinterest could add more value and would love to share my tried and tested techniques with my readers. Until then, I’ve shared your post on my board as well 🙂Reply to Adnan
Hi, Why thanks for that share! So happy you found this post and found it helpful for your blogging content schedule! Good luck and have fun understanding blogging and Pinterest!Reply to Elna
Hello Elna! Always so informative and generous! Thank you for the lists! I have a lifestyle blog which includes inspiration for a positive lifestyle and I am starting to implement a lot of elements in your list! The list blog post has become something I am very fond of and I agree that it is a time saver for a lot of people because it’s so much information in one post that you don’t need to search else where…such as this one! Lol!Reply to Nyah
Hi Elna unique as always, thanks for the list. quick question, i had small blog and while i was changing the name it was broken and gone. my host couldn’t recover it and i had to start a new one. i’m writing posts before launching the blog, i can’t do all of the ones in the list, is it fine? and how many posts should i start my blog with?Reply to Athba
Hi! Sorry to hear that! That’s fine – you don’t have to do all the list right now, but try to incorporate them later! As for how much to start off with, I typically go live with one blog post and then keep writing! Good luck!Reply to Elna
Just in time! I’ve been in a little rut and my blog idea list was dwindling. I’ve already got 3 post titles and I’m not even done reading your list!Reply to Samantha
Hi Samantha, So happy to hear this! I hope these best types of blog posts will help you change it up and add something new to your blog content!Reply to Elna
I genuinely like the post. Meh too bland of a comment but you know as every blogger has their own voice, yours sounds very genuine and up to d point. Thanks for the tips 😉Reply to Vaidehi
Hi! Thanks so much! And no, it wasn’t a bland comment! I appreciated it 🙂Reply to Elna
Thank you that is some awesome advice it is really helpful Although I didn’t get how Do I make Income report post as a newbie But I will make all this post on my new blogReply to jayant
This is very helpful! Quick question – for round up posts, did you get people’s permission before you used their site?Reply to Camille
Hi Camille, You don’t need someones permission to take a screenshot of someones blog. I write for big brands and often write about other businesses or services/products. I can’t wait for permission to take a screenshot of Dropbox’s front page or Convertkit’s front page…. the only time you would ask permission is if you use a blogger’s image. So DIY bloggers or craft bloggers, you would have to ask permission to use their images/creations. I would also ask permission if you using a long quote from a person’s blog.Reply to Elna
Dear Elna, I’ve read through so, SO many posts recently regarding blog topics (turns out, I’m so scared, I’ve forgotten how to write since I’ve started my blog), but none of them was this informative and inspiring as yours above. Congratulations, thank you and keep up the great work!Reply to Csilla
Hi! So happy to hear that! Thanks for stopping over and I hope these blog types will help you!Reply to Elna
Hi Elna! This is such a great post! I’ve read through it at least three times. The topics listed here have really helped kickstart my brainstorming of content titles and outlines for articles I plan to write. Thank you so much. P.S., I also read your post on “why every blogger needs a Gravatar.” I’ve added it to my to-do list. Thanks again!Reply to Marsha
Hi Marsha, Thanks so much! Love your Gravatar image and glad you enjoyed reading this post!Reply to Elna
Hi Elna, I’m not necessarily in your same niche, although I am a stay at home mom. I love your suggestions and having just started my home decorating store and blog, I can definitely incorporate them into my niche. Thanks for sharing!Reply to DeAnna
That’s awesome! Yea these blog post ideas can help you with your home decor blog!Reply to Elna
I love this post! I have been blogging for a long time but never really took it too seriously. Now I want to go all out and start to really shine 🙂 So I moved blogs to WordPress and I also started a new one (I got a domain with my hosting so why not use it!) This is really going to make me think about what to write now in a good way! That was honestly my biggest mistake years ago was that I didn’t have a good plan and I always ran out of things to post. My blogs had lost any traffic I had started to build because of it. One question I have: Do you use one Pinterest account for both your blogs or do you use one for each?Reply to Dawn
Hey Dawn! Thank you so much! So happy you are motivated to keep going. Glad you are self-hosted too! For Pinterest, I was using two blog URLS under ONE account, but had to eventually move one as one of my URLS was growing too fast!Reply to Elna
Thanks for the great article. I started my blog 4 months ago and I am receiving very little to no traffic. I will start creating round up posts and list posts, hopefully, this will increase traffic to my page. I also plan to share my blog growth strategies. Thank you for the great tips.Reply to Jen
Hey Jen! YES! Give it a try and see what happens. Those are awesome types of posts for sure!Reply to Elna
This is SO helpful, thank you! I am new blogger still working on the logistics of launching my blog! My question is when your first starting launch, how many posts do you first put out? One, 2? If you are planning on posting weekly, do you just have your one post live there until the following post? Any suggestions of which post should be the first? Does it really matter if it’s a list post versus an opinion post? Is there one that would be more appropriate for a first? Sorry this is long!Reply to Sierra
Hi Sierra! Those are great questions! I personally launched my blog with one blog post but other bloggers do 3-5 blog posts. The first blog post (or first few) can be about whatever you want. Those posts really won’t be seen and it’s good practice for you as a new blogger. I like to suggest your first post to be WHY you started your blog. Or why you became a (x- blogger, SAHM, WAHM, etc..). This can introduce yourself to your audience! Good luck and have fun starting a blog!Reply to Elna
Hi Elna, these posts are an eye-opener. Will definitely use them as a guide. Thank youReply to Grace
Hi Grace! That’s great! These blog post ideas are perfect for a new blog so try to incorporate them into your content schedule!Reply to Elna
This post is literally saving my blog life right now because i’m pushing to launch in January and really needed help on what type of post to publish first. Thank you, Elna! Soooo helpful!Reply to Frances
Hi Frances! You’re welcome! Figuring out what to blog about is a challenge. These posts are always my go-to!Reply to Elna
Useful tips on here! I’ve just starting out blogging which is alien to me. Nice to get your advice on here on them – thanksReply to Melissa
Hi Melissa! You’re welcome! Yes, finding your way around blogging is hard! It took me a long time but the more you blog and the more you start a blog, the faster and better you’ll be! Have fun blogging!Reply to Elna
Thanks so much for this! I’m launching my blog in the next few days and this was a great gut check to make sure I’m on track. Thanks!Reply to Cameron
Hey Cameron, I’m glad this post helped with your content schedule for your blog! Having the best types of posts will really help with getting that initial blog traffic!Reply to Elna
This was a very helpful blog post and I have finally got started with my blog! Thanks.Reply to David
This was so helpful and simple to follow and understand…i havent started blogging yet but definatly will be using all what youve said to my advantage…. Ive looked up How to start blogging before and its always goes over my head as theyve gone over under and around, you was justvstraight to the point.x Thank youReply to Martina
Hi Martina! Wow! Thank you so much! I’m so glad you found the right steps to start a blog!Reply to admin
Hi Elna, Your blog has tons of useful and inspiring information for new bloggers. I really like your writing style. I have been thinking of how I can get more traffic to my new blog by pumping up content. I want to try round-up posts as I see several bloggers have great success with round-up. Do you know if Facebook round-up group is still a thing? Any recommendation on where to source for round-up posts that give permission to use the images so I don’t have to contact bloggers one by one before I can publish a post?Reply to Carmen
Hey Carmen, Thanks so much! So glad you enjoyed the post and found some tips to boost your blog traffic! Round up posts are great. You can use FB to ask bloggers if they would like to contribute to a round up for sure! Not sure if there is a group on just round-ups but you can try blogging groups and things like that. They may have threads on collabs or round-ups. As for images I would personally ask the blogger as many use their own images!Reply to Elna
Hi Elna, This post ROCKS! I am a newbie blogger and this will be so useful in helping may craft posts that people want to read. Super helpful tips that I am excited to try! With all the comments and shares, this post itself is proof that your techniques work. Thanks!Reply to DeShena
Hey DeShena, So glad you liked this post! Yes, knowing the right types of blog posts to have for a new blog is important to grow your blog traffic for sure!Reply to Elna
Hi Elna, This post is a great example of all of the key points you are talking about. I am just starting out and trying to learn as much as possible! I appreciate your thoughtful advice! Cheers,Reply to Monica
Hi Monica! You’re so welcome! Glad you found some easy blog post topics for your new blog!Reply to Elna
Definitely saving this! I just started my blog June 1st of this year, and I’m so determined to make it huge. This is wonderful information for new bloggers.. I have found myself on your site more than once in the past two months actually. You have such valuable advice!Reply to Morgan
I love how you explained every type and gave examples of them. You’ve provided informative articles that can easily be applied. I appreciate you for sharing.Reply to Jordan
Hi Morgan, That’s awesome! Congrats on your new blog. It takes a lot of dedication and persistance for sure to maintain a blog!Reply to Elna
Thanks for such an easy to follow and actionable list! This was exactly what I needed to organize my thoughts and start working on content building.Reply to Mel
That’s awesome Mel! I love finding blog posts that have a simple plan to help grow your blog traffic and audience!Reply to Elna
Hi Elna, Thanks for the great post. It gives me more ideas how to planning great blog post in future. Sometimes doesn’t realize that certain type of blog post really doing so well.Reply to Zaini
Hey Zaini, You’re welcome! Glad you found some blog ideas for your blog content marketing 🙂 Looking at certain blog post ideas can help you!Reply to Elna
Oh, Elna, Thank you very much for sharing this. I can`t wait to try it on my own blog. I am just new and experiment with everything. So it`s helped.Reply to Julie
Hey Julie, Good to know. So happy you started a blog and need some blogging ideas for new blog posts. These are the best types of blog posts for bloggers to have no matter what niche you are in so good luck!Reply to Elna
Loved this one Elna, I am still trying to find time to produce a resource post. Thanks for sharing.Reply to Alvern
Hi Alvern! Thanks so much! Yes, creating a resource blog post as a way to grow blog traffic can be a bit time consuming, but well worth it in the long run! I suggest you outline it and do a little bit every day!Reply to Elna
Hi Elna, Thank you for this list! Just had a quick question about roundup posts which I see you have answered already but I wanted to know a bit more. You says it’s totally ok to do a round up posts and inform the blogs/ bloggers later about it. But suppose I were to share ideas or latest trends and then give reference of a post or blogger along with using their post feature image in like a round-up layout, or a full image linking back and giving proper picture credits to the post and the blogger, is that OK to do?Reply to Sejal
Hi! You can copy a sentence or phrase from the blogger’s blog post and use that as a quote on your blog with a link back to that blog post. That’s fine. As for using THEIR images, I would only take a screenshot of their blog only. I wouldn’t use their direct images unless I asked permission (and ask permission to use them on social media graphics too).Reply to Elna
I love all your posts. I’ve been reading your blog for quite sometime and you’re one hard-working lady! I love how you write and I think this was just what I was looking for. This actually works for any field. I’m writing a blog for Illustrators and Artists and it’s very difficult to find blogs that don’t focus on blogging. But this is just perfect. I’m going to round up some Illustrators and put all their advice in one blog post! 😀Reply to Angela
Hi Angela! Thank you so much for your kind words. For your searching blogs, try Pinterest as well as Google for those keywords to see if you can find those niche blogs. Good luck!Reply to Elna
Thank you so much for sharing this, definitely useful for new mommy bloggers and it makes total sense! I have had my blog for a while, but have not been able to commit to it because, well life happens and I have no idea of what I am doing. But this time I really want to stick with it. This was very informative, thanks again!Reply to Pamela
Hi Pamela, You’re so welcome! Yes, having focus as a new blogger is hard when you have shiny object syndrome!! I hope you use these posts to help you grow your traffic!Reply to Elna
I really loved this post! Ive thought about having a blog for months but of course I say to myself there are already so many, too many, it will fail but this gave me a little confidence booster! thank you for your tips! whenever mine is up and running I will direct so many people to your blog !Reply to KeiLani
Hi KeiLani! Thank you a bunch! So happy you got that confidence boost from this post! I can’t wait to hear about your blog!Reply to Elna
Thank you so much for your post. I literally made the decision to start a blog yesterday and your whole blog has been very helpful. After going through your blog I’ve decided that though the tech details are important I’m going to focus on Niche and Content and then Traffic and Monetization before launching my blog, so thanks again. Now on to inspire and educate, yay!Reply to Lei
Hi Lei, You’re welcome! So happy you found some helpful tips to get started! Good luck on your new blog and you have a great plan!Reply to Elna
I just began my blog a couple of weeks ago, and your blog is already one of the most helpful that I have seen! I have a long list of topic ideas, but this post has helped me focus on which angles to take on each post. Thank you for your insight and help to those of us who are newbies!Reply to Jessica
Hi Jessica, Thank you so much! I’m humbled by what you said. I hope I can serve you more with my blog! Thanks for coming over!Reply to Elna
I’m new to blogging…my site is still a work in progress but I’m learning so much from you! Thank you so much for all the information! You’re amazing!!Reply to Amanda
Hi Amanda, You’re welcome! So glad you found some great tips for your new blog!Reply to Elna
Hi Elna! This is probably a silly question, but I’m assuming that if you do a resources post then you need to contact the bloggers that you want to reference and get their permission to write about them and link back to their blogs. Is this true?Reply to Cheyenne
Hi Cheyenne, No you don’t. You are free to talk about other bloggers on your blog without letting them know. Of course, I would tag them on social media and let them know after you publish that you featured them! I get emails all the time of bloggers saying they featured me and more often than not I see in Google Analtyics that someone linked to me without my knowing!Reply to Elna
