Befriend the man who gives a hand, not shows his hand.
OK, I made that up. But it’s not terrible.
Welcome to my new blog template. At least for now. I suppose if enough people hate it, I will change it. I’m not married to it yet. This is my third blog template in eleven years.
Now for the bigger question — what to do with this blog? I’m human. I crave attention and validation. And I can get more interaction from most of you by posting on Facebook or Instagram. What makes this site special? A person might read one of my posts about kitchen sponges on Facebook because it is shoved at them on their newsfeed, but who in their right mind is going to click on a link to read the same material on my blog?
You will just say, “Talk to my Hand.”
Please do not take this as criticism of you, dear reader, but myself. A REAL writer will write whether there is an audience for his work or not.
“Then why not just submit your writing to other sites instead and make $ online?”
That’s a good question, internal voice! Which publication would be keen to publish articles about kitchen sponges?
