How Do You Give The Readers What They Want?


If you want to build a community and create a rip roaring blog of value and excitement you need to give the readers what they want or so they say.

Today I was told to do more podcasts by one person yet in a separate message I was told not to.

One person liked my voice and another was irritated by it because they “prefer my words.”

Since these positions are diametrically opposed I am going to continue to do what I do best, follow my own heart.

There is no question regarding the importance of trying to meet your reader’s needs but not at the expense of your passion.

P.S. I wrote this post on my phone using the WordPress app.

It was easy to do but I still prefer the computer.

    ReallyGina1 I am far too grumpy to try to please everyone. It really is an impossible task.

    michellelongo I understand that. If you can’t listen it renders them completely useless. Sometimes I like the podcast because I like practicing my verbal storytelling. It takes practice to tell a story out loud just as it does via text.

    geoffliving Just be you is the way to go. Makes life much easier and I think the posts are better when you we write with our own voice and interest.

    You can never make everyone happy at once. At least I have found that to be true. I like variety.

    I personally don’t like podcasts and vlogs because I don’t have the ability to listen. Usually when I’m reading it’s because I need a silent activity so I miss out on a lot of things people put out there because of volume. (Yes, I do know earbuds exist.)
    I prefer to write because I communicate much better that way. My podcast would be a complete disaster.

    Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.  Just be you.
