WTF? What’s with all the mixed messages? One minute I’m being told to choose a specific audience and cater my content to them, don’t stray from your niche…OR ELSE! The next minute I’m being told to write what I please and the followers will…you know, follow.
Well, I’m digitally claustrophobic. I love writing about domestic duties but I’m also itching to write about my other passions like politics and pop culture. I want to share what I’m listening to and the books I can’t put down. I want to know how you feel about the state of American politics and if the dream we were all promised is surviving in the age of social media. I want to say FUCK without fear of offending the mild mannered old lady that once liked a post I wrote about cupcakes.
I don’t want to have the all white backgrounds the hugely successful fashion girls are using. Nothing about me or my lifestyle are all white. Hell, I can’t even eat a sandwich in a white T-shirt without making a mess of it (sad but true).
So I’m going to follow Alfredo’s advice and say FUCK IT. I’ll write what I want . No one else is reading consistently anyway so I might as well enjoy it. And to the few who do read consistently, thank you.
Trust me it’s only going to get better. More Awkward, less filtered, all me.
