To date this blog has largely been a journal for me…
It’s been a tool to keep me writing and keep me honest, regardless of how many people see it. I’m at least putting it out there so people could check.
But overall, it’s being a disservice to anyone that might stumble by.
You see there’s two primary goals I have with writing every day.
One is to become a better writer who’s writing is good enough to be in-demand in the financial space.
The second is to learn more about the financial space for my own future. I know there’s a million blogs on personal finance out there. But for me, writing promotes understanding.
Having discussions and forcing myself to make connections between finances and stories buries those lessons deeper into my psyche.
Coincidentally, the second does help the first in many ways… just as the first can help the second.
However, the audiences are different.
The audience to write in the financial space is two-fold. The market itself is financial publishers looking for more resources so they can put out more, high quality content.
True, you need to understand their customer demographic as well. Which is where having a blog or something along that line comes into play. It can help build my experience writing to the same audience.
This is just something I’ve been pondering today. I suspect this blog will need to morph into one or the other of those choices and a new website will need to be created for the other.
Maybe over the next few days I’ll start exploring the different problems of each audience. It’s time I start really getting familiar with both.
