While in NYC, I chatted with a friend of mine who has been blogging every single day for years now. He says one key to his writing success is that he doesn’t know how many people read his posts. He writes it in a way like an enhanced diary, and that way he’s independent of feedback. So now that I’m not on Facebook, I see what he is talking about. There’s no checking how many ‘likes’ I got, and hardly anyone comments on my posts (yet). Who knows if/who reads. And it’s good this way.
