Write what you want

I know… I know..

The instant dopamine rush the moment you see the likes pile up in your notifications can be very satisfying but that shouldn’t be the reason you write.

I have always strived to write whatever I want in my blog posts and the moment I steer off course, my writing would become cold and horrible. I believe in the past, there are a few examples of that (some digging is needed).

Write what you want, not what you think your readers want and when you start to write something that you are not interested in just for the likes, people can smell that crap from miles away.

Be yourself, I guess, is an awesome advice. Well, people do give that advice especially if you want to ask someone out. Maybe, there is some substance in that and thus, I guess, it applies to writing too.

Make sure that topic that you write about fascinates you and therefore, channel that fascination into your writing. Convince the readers why the topic that you are writing about it so fascinating and naturally, the likes will come!

So, write! Write about the things that you love, the things that interest you and the things that make you, you!

  1. Good advice but at times hard to follow. In the past and even this morning I have begun postings about personnel feelings and that have never been published because after polishing I decide it is indeed too personal. It is possible that some things were never meant to see the light of day or at least never meant to be read by others.

    1. I mean, definitely there some things that we ought not to share but I think writers should really insert some of their personality into what they write and not just robotically post an article that is cold and somewhat dead.

  2. I’m so happy to see this. I keep seeing posts from one certain blog, proclaiming that the only way to get followers and views is to write posts in the way they’re telling you to. Let’s just say that doesn’t sit very well with me.
