When I was reconstituting my blog after a year of maternity leave, a friend asked me, "Would you keep writing if no one was reading?"
She is one of my sounding boards and I bounce a lot of ideas off of her. This comment came out of me asking about the focus of my blog. And my answer was an immediate "Yes."
Even if the only people reading were her, my husband, and my mom, I would still feel called to write.
I read a lot about influencer culture. I find it interesting. I have no desire to be one myself. (The Indicator recently did a whole series on how it's a hard gig.) I have no desire to track followers or engagement rates. I don't want to deal with companies or sponsored deals.
But, I do like sharing.
I love engaging with all the amazing things people create and find. I don't like keeping those interesting things to myself. I share because curiosity is a joy.
Many weeks, I end this intro with a question. More often than not, I don't get a response. That's okay. I keep asking because I want to provide space for sharing what we find interesting.
What do you think is worth sharing?
