This Is Only For Those Who Are Reading This

This Is Only For Those Who Are Reading This

Some guy wrote to tell me that my blog doesn’t draw as many people as it should because I don’t do whatever it was he suggested I do and write about.

Another guy told me that one of my FREE newsletters contained an article that he “couldn’t use personally” and he’d have to unsubscribe if I kept it up!

I told them both that I don’t write for them, I write for me. And in so doing I apparently strike enough people the right way to eke out a decent living for myself. I don’t care if some people don’t like it, it’s of no consequence to me.

I write for me.

For whom do you write?

    Absolutely keep writing for you – the game is changing every day, but value reigns, not fancy Canva designs spouting be your own best selfie…

    I started blogging in August 2011. Then, my writing was geared to a specific audience member and to attract clients. I found that too difficult, inauthentic, and contrived.

    After six months I took the same approach as you Alan and began writing for me. It’s easier that way.

    You can’t be all things to all people. Be yourself and you’ll be a better servant and add meaningful value to the person who resonates with who you are.

    I enjoy your content.

    Lots of people out there who think they are more concerned about your business than you are. I meet a fairly good number daily in my work. Sometimes I check out their profiles to see how successful they’ve been at doing what they preach! More often than not, they have no evidence to support their case.
