Well, That Was Profound

Sometimes, profoundness comes from the most unexpected people at the most unexpected times.

Driving down the highway the other day with my wonderful hubby, we were talking- okay, I was talking, and I was sharing how I wanted to get more views on my blog and social media.

“What do you think I can do to increase views? Like, what do you think people want to see? What will make my blog unique?” I asked.

His answer totally surprised me.

“You. If you look out there in the world, there’s millions of people but not one of them is doing YOU. That’s what will make your blog unique.”

What do you say to that?

Nothing really.

I just gaped at him a little before making some piddling comment about how profound he was.

Gosh, I love that man.

But he was right. Thinking about it now, and going over all the schemes I was thinking up to try and increase readership, I realized that most of them would involve me trying to be someone who I was not… and all in the name of hopefully garnering more views.

But that’s not what blogging is about, not for me anyway.

To me, it’s about being authentic. Being who I am and being proud of it. Sharing a part of myself through my writing and hopefully being able to inspire or touch another soul through it.

Years ago, I wrote a short poem to help myself stay true to who I am and now, I find myself once more drawing from some of my own childhood wisdom. Imagine that.

If someone is not willing to change for you, then why should you change for them?

It’s not worth the effort.

And trust me, the internet will never, ever, change for you.

So be YOU.

And I’ll be me.
