Audience

3 Jan 2018

I used to blog. I used to blog with friends. We shared an MT3 instance. I was defacto webmaster. I'd write a blog, they'd read it; they'd write a blog, and I'd read it. We left comments on each other's posts.

It was exciting.

We wrote for each other. We had our very own captive audience in each other. We were our social network.

In the last few years, writing, for me, has been a struggle. I've now come to realise that writing was a means to connect with an audience. When that audience dispersed, so did the writing.

I guess I could start looking for an audience to write to, or I could write to a pretend audience.

We'll see.

Happy New Year.
