The topic of caring what my readers wanted to see on my blog came up today.
Since I started posting here I have felt overwhelming support and encouragement from those who write me on and off the scenes. I have made friends, used this as a vehicle for self-expression and discussion and been enlightened, entertained and inspired through readings of fellow writers. Why do I feel like a bad blogger, then?
The lingering question finally exposes itself -- Am I giving them what they want?
I wonder this a lot, and always find myself conflicted in the answer. Because of feedback I know that what I am putting out is something that is meaningful to some of you. Without that, positive or not, I would write and post much less. But do I really care what else I could do to make my readers happy or more pleased with my blog? No.
Wait, don't get all pissed at me yet.
When I say I don't care, I mean I don't care to do a poll or survey to find out. One thing I absolutely cherish about the readers of this blog is that you are here of your own free will, and not because of a giveaway, link spam or some numbers game (not hatin', just sayin').
I purposely and diligently dedicate this place to opening myself up to you all without any other agenda and would like to retain that while still working towards giving you better writings, features, pictures and of course.. outfits.
Consider this your open invitation to tell me what more you want to see, even if I haven't done it before. That, I would be interested in and care about.
I promise to never solicit you otherwise.
