I’m writing for me, not you

This time last year I was writing an article a day, and kept it up for 4 months before I let it fade away. But I was writing on one topic, and targeting a specific audience. I couldn’t sustain it.

This year, I’m doing it again. I seem to be writing an article a day – or more – and I’m writing on multiple topics, and I’m writing for me.

I’m not targeting a specific audience, I’m just writing what I feel like writing, when I feel like writing it.

Right now I’m in the toilet. Hey, some people read books, I just happen to be writing.

Don’t worry, I’ll wash my hands.

This feels a lot more comfortable for me. The writing, I mean.

I’ve got freedom to write what I want, rather than what I think my audience wants.

I’m sure that, over time, I’ll get an audience here, interested in some of the topics I’ll be writing about. But this time around, it’s not my intention to build an audience, but to just write.

I’m enjoying this.

What about you? Is there anything you’re doing in your life that’s being done for other people rather than for yourself?
