Writing for the reader

I was recently asked about whether I write for myself or for readers.

It’s something I think about every now and then but it was interesting to be asked.

On one hand I write for myself because I love it but on the other hand I write for my readers too.

I’m thoughtful about what I share and my intention is to always add value in some way.

I don’t expect anyone to read every single post I write but for the posts you do read I’d like it to feel like time well spent.

Whether it’s 100 words on friendship, career development or overcoming fear, I do my best to add some kind of takeaway.

One thought on “Writing for the reader

  1. Yes, finding the balance is key. I’m pretty certain all of us on WordPress do want an audience of sorts, or else we’d be writing in our private journals. But if the writing doesn’t make us happy then that won’t do either. Thanks for sharing this!
