“You are not a beautiful and unique snowflake. You are the same decaying organic matter as everyone else, and we are all part of the same compost pile.” – TD
I think there are two blogger types: Those that love the topic they write about and those that love to write about a topic. I think I’m the later, but I’m trying hard to be the former. Everyone that’s been publishing stuff online for a while and has been “successful” at it, agree unanimously on this one tip: you have to find that one thing that your “passionate” about. And the more focused and narrow you are about that passion/topic, the better off you are. The problem is that most of us are not as weird or unique as we might think.
What I realize is that it’s not about the capital P Passion thing. That’s just too much Pressure and too ephemeral. It is important, but what you really have to figure out is what you shouldn’t talk/write about. What not to put out there. It’s about disciplined self-editing and that’s why it’s so freaking hard.
