One of the hardest parts about writing for me has been finding my audience. A friend recently told me that I have found one, and I agree… and also don’t.
I write from all the messy places with no real focus on any one thing. One of my ideas was to ask you guys what you want to read. Then I wondered if I was supposed to offer suggestions of what you might want and my list looked a little like this one:
- Single momma stuff
- Christian single woman stuff
- Christian homeschooling working momma stuff
- Momma to an addict stuff
- Church hurts stuff
- Surgeries gone all wrong stuff
- I feed everyone stuff
- I house everyone too stuff
- Even stray cows would be safe with me stuff
- I can’t find a date (let alone a husband) to save my life stuff
- Abortion/Rape/Abuse survivor stuff
- Chasing unicorns stuff
- I’m a lil too hood for my own good stuff
- Sometimes I cuss stuff
The reality is that I enjoy writing about all of these things. And I think you all have come to expect some of these really hard topics from me. The reality also is that means my readership might not grow. It might stay right where it is and we have to decide if we’re okay with that – like how I just roped you in on that one?! 😉
In the meantime, I have to do some things – like create an email list, launch a new website with a great lead magnet, and probably start adding some affiliates. This might take some time, but I’m ready to jump in with both of these tootsies and I hope you all are too!
I’m excited to head into this new journey, I’m grateful for the encouragement from my hope*writers group, and I’m ever grateful for each of you!
