When most of us start a new Twitter account, or a new blog, or a new business, nobody cares. It’s not easy to find fans or an audience to help spread something you’re doing.
My entire goal in life isn’t just to have people on Twitter sharing a blog post of mine. But it is important. If it weren’t, I’d keep a private journal. Maybe invite my Mom.
But I like to teach. I also like to get the feedback an audience can give me. It helps me improve.
So 5 years ago, I’d blog randomly here and there, and I enjoyed it. Every now and then a post would get some nice traffic.
But it didn’t seem like I was growing any kind of audience. No one new would follow me on Twitter. The next blog post would have crickets. RSS subscriber growth was zero.
I gave up....
