A Metaphorical Handshake With My Followers — I’d Like To Meet You!
Because writing for an audience gets a whole lot easier when you know your audience
There are currently 36 of you lovely people, and although that number is not considered to be very many by a fair number of standards, I’m very grateful for each and every one of you!
It’s an honor to be on the receiving end of your follows, and as wonderful writers, yourselves, I’m sure you can all relate to the giddy contentedness that comes with knowing there are people out there reading the words your put onto a page in your free time.
It truly never gets old.
I’m coming up to my fourth month on Medium, and it occurred to me (literally at 1:30am last night) how much I’d to find a way to connect with you more personally than just by exchanging a few claps, or reads here and there.
Although this platform isn’t particularly conducive to long-form conversations or authentic discussions, I would love the chance to get to know where you’re from, what you do, and the type of content you both love to produce, as well as consume!
We can talk about life perspectives, the peculiarity of creating content for a practically invisible online audience, or just chat and see what we have in common! If you feel so inclined to leave a comment with any or all of the above, please do — and accept this metaphorical handshake as an expression of my enthusiasm to meet you!
