I am an occasional blogger. There are not enough hours in a day (or night) to do all of the things I want to do and blog too. So, I write when I can and blog when I have shaped what I have written into something that clearly expresses what I want, and need, to share. I am grateful when someone actually visits my blog and reads my work, and I feel flattered and proud when somone takes the time to “Like” my work or leaves a comment on the page. My blogging goals are simple: 1) to write for the pure enjoyment of the creative writing process; 2) to accept the risk of putting my writing “out there” for the entire on line world to see; 3) to leave of part of me behind, forever, as a legacy of sorts for my family, my children, and those not yet born.
So, who is the target audience for my blog? – anyone who finds and reads my work – including you, reading this. That is enough for me.
words once written
expose my soul
words once read
reveal who I am

🙂 As I said Bill I am writing these for people that care about their audience size.
Yea, I know. Your article just made me think about my own goals for my blog and to consider if audience size is important to me. I respect and admire what you have been able to do. I just needed to understand and take ownership of my own goals. Thanks for your inspiration.
