Finding my voice

I’m a hack. At least for right now. Go to Seth Godin’s blog and see for yourself. These words are mine but the style is his. It makes sense considering Seth Godin’s book is what inspired me to start blogging a few days ago.

One thing I’m struggling with is how I can give value to you as the reader. This blog so far feels very selfish—probably because it is. I’m fleshing out my thoughts like this is a diary but I need to contribute something to you. Otherwise, I’m taking your time without giving something in return and that is an absolute sin. Some ideas for future posts of what I know that may be useful to you:

  • Software development - the most obvious one considering it’s my day job. It’s difficult to think of posts I could write in under 30 minutes but I’m sure there are some.
  • Graphic design - I’m self-taught but I design my own websites and apps. I could also offer the unique perspective of a developer who designs their own UI/UX.
  • Self improvement - I listen to so many podcasts and read a lot of books on this topic. I most likely won’t contribute anything new but maybe it will be new to you.

This blog is going to be a bit all over the place until I discover my own voice. I have no idea when it will happen but I will continue to write everyday until I do. Luckily, I have no audience right now so I have time to figure it out. If you are reading this, you are likely from the future. Greetings from 2020.
