Stop writing for everyone

I came across ‘Content is King’ and other reasons you shouldn’t write online. That's to me an odd title for a post about finding your voice and audience. What especially caught my attention is this: It’s time to stop writing for everyone, and start using your words to really say something. I like this one... Continue Reading →

I just finished Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear by Elizabeth Gilbert and I love it. The book is about creative living, regardless of what you're creating.

Blogg100 2014, day 7
