I can’t write when I know someone’s going to read it. I prefer to blog in anonymity with the hope that someone stumbles upon it and likes it.
The expectation that I have to please someone or sell someone something that I just do on the side is a barrier to entry.
The Internet allows anyone to create a small fan base. You don’t have to own a star in Hollywood to be famous. You can be famous in your own niche online. Still, the followers aren’t even the point.
The point of publishing networks like Twitter and Tumblr is the continuity of practicing self-expression. Nothing makes sense to me unless I write it down.
Hitting the publish is sometimes the riskiest thing I do every day. But the risk muscle needs flexing too. I’ve taken more chances in life and spoken up many times all because I decided to write a little piece here every morning.
