” What I’m really concerned about is reaching one person.”
— Jorge Luis Borges
If we consider bloggers as writers, we can safely assume that the goal of a blogger is the same as a writer; To have their writing read!
When we write/ blog on a public platform, the aim is that people should read and benefit from our writing. It could entertain people or educate them. So it would be amazing if more people read our posts. But if only one person, the one who needed to read what we wrote, read our post then the purpose of writing is very much validated.
When more than one person reads my posts and comments on them, I feel that I am reaching out across the world to people who I probably would never meet in person ( except by a chance) and connecting with them. This is an amazing feeling and empowering too. The power of written words is immense and no one can foretell the impact it may have.
A few points I’ve learned during my blogging journey regarding the importance of what I write are;
Always stick to the truth, unless you’re writing fiction. Research your topic well and from multiple sources.
Convey a positive message whenever you can. Every situation has both positive and negative aspects, and concentrating only on the negative can have a depressing effect on the reader.
Be meticulous about your writing ( as much as you can) bad grammar and spelling can really distort your message.
Share personal experiences, it allows the reader to connect with you.
These are a few ways to reach out to the readers and connect with them.
