Here’s the thing. I think I write good content on the blog. I think I’m at a point where I wouldn’t mind reaching a wider audience. But I don’t have the will or the energy to publicize. I won’t go on social media. I’m not on Facebook or Twitter. I have an Instagram, but I never post, I just look at other people’s posts. I’m not gonna go out and sell myself. I’m not gonna put myself out there in a way that tries to induce people to check out my blog. I’m not gonna go say provocative things on social media trying to get attention. Just, I don’t wanna do any of that shit. But I think I can make people’s lives better, with fiction and philosophy and generally entertaining and/or quirky shit. It’s good stuff on this blog. I fear I am doomed to obscurity, however.
Perhaps you can help, my readers. There are a few of you. Do you know anybody who might like one of my stories or posts or magic items or culture snippets or whatever? You could send them a link. Or post on the dreaded social media platform of your choice. It would only take a second, and then perhaps more people would come and read and comment. I think I’m ready for that, but I don’t think I’ll ever be ready to promote my content myself. That’s where you could come in, if you felt like it.
Either way, I’m not gonna stop posting. I derive benefit from writing this blog, even if it is never widely read. And I’m not putting pressure on you to publicize my blog for free. It’s just something nice I thought of that you could do for me, if I have brought you any pleasure over the years with my work. But like yeah, you totally don’t have to, and I don’t really expect it. It’s just an idea I had.
