Today’s Assignment: publish a post you’d like your ideal audience member to read, and include a new-to-you element in it.
This is the very thing that I neglected to think about when I first came up with my blog. I knew what I wanted to write about, but I never thought about who I was writing to. Does that mean I am tad self-centred? Probably! But aren’t we all, even if it’s just a little. I mean the very fact that most of us write about ourself says it all (in my opinion). We all want others to get to know us. And read about us. We all want to be popular (to an extent). We want lots of followers and comments and likes. So it comes as no surprise that the majority of us forget about the who in our audience.
And that is why we find this task so difficult; or at least I did.
And I feel the need to be completely honest here. I do occasionally see myself as the centre of my own universe. I try to push those thoughts aside, and tell myself over and over that I am not, that I put everyone before myself, that I am selfless. But I am not. Not yet anyway, it is something that I need to work on, but that technicality is between me and God.
So back to my audience. The who!
They are anyone who is willing to listen to my voice. Anyone who reads my words. Anyone who agrees and disagrees with what I say. Anyone who loves or hates me. Those that like music, or politics, keeping fit or eating junk. Those that like to read fiction or fact. Those that like the outdoors, camping, luxury spa visits or simply lazing around. Those that are Spiritual, or not. Those that have families or not. Those that are alone by themselves or alone in the midst of a crowd. Those that are introvert or extrovert.
All of these things are what make up me and are a part of me, and the list can go on and on. I write for those that want to listen. I write because it’s comforting to me, and perhaps reading is comforting to you. And this blog, in time will show all these different parts of me, the controversial, miserable, funny parts of me.
So the Who?
Who is the Who?
The Who is YOU!
Thanks for reading, oh and here is a video that for some bizarre reason I find super funny. EVERY TIME!
