I just can’t stop doing these things. A few weeks ago someone asked me about audience feedback and how it shapes what I do. I said “I’ve never done anything with the audience in mind.” (This triple applies to my new voyage into YouTube.) This might seem odd but I find it much more enjoyable. How do you think I’ve been able to blog since 2002? Yes, you read that correctly, 2002.
I sure as shit didn’t post with the audience in mind. If I had I would have given up this blogging nonsense more than a decade ago. Here is the trick. It’s not that I don’t like the people who read this site. I do, obviously. Heck, I like most people whether they visit here or not. However, if I post with only your needs in mind I end up with a site that isn’t mine. Think about that.
The exact same thing happens when you work as a photographer and spend your life shooting OTHER people’s pictures. At some point, most of us hit the wall, burnout and never go back. I LOVE writing, sharing, posting and tossing odd things against the wall to see what sticks. Like this podcast. Enjoy.
