Surfing the web as you do when I found this article about the dilemma writers face when it comes to their content. Choosing between pleasing the editors by exaggerating your content in order to gain more likes and views or staying true to yourself, keeping the integrity of your work at the forefront of your content. Going with the latter may mean less views and less likes but at least the conscience of the writer can sleep easy knowing that they haven’t strayed from the path they set for themselves, staying true to their beliefs and goals.
At the end of the day, writers like ourselves want to gain exposure but for the right reasons and in the right way. We want our viewers to learn something in the time they spent reading our content. For me, it’s simple, go with quality over quantity, your audience will come back not because of sensationalised stories, they will come back because they like you as a writer and your work will speak for yourself. If you have a purpose as to why you write and if you express your passion about the topics you write about, the positive energy you put into your blogs and websites will be absorbed by the readers who will have a purpose to read your blogs, to read your websites, to buy into the things that breathe live into your existence. From this will breed the satisfaction you crave whilst also gaining a healthy amount of views if enough people feel the same way as you.
Thanks to Rachael for writing the article, I definitely found that it resonated with me, with why I first started to blog. The link to article is below.
