Who do I write for?

Who is your Reader?

My blog is not a Dear Diary, however it is my own personal reflection. It’s not my goal to reveal my inner most secrets, but an opportunity to write about what matters to me.

It was as I have posted before a way for me to keep myself honest to my personal challenge of writing a thousand words a month. I have achieved that goal in each and every month whether through this blog, via my articles for The Adelaide Review or in my University assignments.

I write because I enjoy it. It’s both intellectually stimulating and relaxing at the same time, although as I am reviewing and editing a post the relaxation aspect can get lost in my desire to get the grammar right! That’s why I enjoy my personal fifteen minutes and then post challenges, of which this is one.

Also I think My writing has got better. Maybe that’s not surprising because it’s like everything – the more you practice at something the better you get. I’ve even tried to write some fiction which is a long way out of my comfort zone.

I haven’t written my posts to necessarily have them read by lots of people, which is fortunate because they haven’t been. That said, I have been gratified that sometimes my posts get some comment and the occasional like.

So when I answer the question who do I write for its Me!

    Glad you’re enjoying the process. I don’t necessarily write for myself. I need an audience. I always say, “I don’t write for myself because I already know what I think. I write so others can know what I think!!” 🙂
    As an aside: I can’t ‘like’ your posts because the ‘Like’ button is never active?? Not sue why? So just know that I do read your posts and enjoy them..

      Thanks – you know Adelaide people they are not show offs – that’s why the like button doesn’t work for you! 🙂

      • Firstly, I will have to test the like button…its like those signs that say “Wet Paint” – I’m the one who casually tests with a fingertip lol. I think writing for yourself is , in a blog world, more important than writing for others. But, Im guessing when you write for the Adelaide Review your writing is audience driven. What type of articles do you write for the Review ?
