Why Write?

I'm starting to forget why I chose to write every day. On days where I'm exhausted or frustrated, it's very hard to sit down and write one of these posts. In the end, most of these are garbage and most of the time nobody will read it, so why do it? When I have that itch to get an idea out, that's when this platform is most useful.

I am not as obsessed with growth as I was at the beginning of the year. I don't feel the need to have 1000 people reading everything I tweet. I don't measure my success through followers. And I'm starting to realize that in order to get followers, you kinda have to sound like a broken record repeatedly saying the same thing over and over again so people will listen. That's how you become "that guy". I don't really want to become that guy anymore.

I like who I am. I like what I do. I'm enjoying it. I don't need anything extra on top. If some form of internet popularity comes, so be it. But I refuse to let this blog turn into a means for that to happen.

I write what I write. Every day? I'm not sure if it's entirely all that useful. We'll reevaluate in the future.
