Posting anything on Facebook lets people know what I'm up to and my core lifestyle. That's what I fear the most.
Through that perspective, these blog posts are also the same thing. And I think that's why I can't share these blog posts as well. I find it very difficult. It's like being extremely vulnerable.
As soon as you open up, there'll be plenty of space for people to attack you.
I love the idea of defensive play. If you have a good defence, you automatically have a good offence.
I like not letting people know what I'm up to. That will help me create as many escape plan as I want. I won't be tied to a certain reality. If I post about something specifically, people will know I'm into it and so they'll start to associate it with me.
I'll have to create a false identity just to impress them or to keep my image up to their standards of the false me. In simple terms, it means that I need to be someone I'm not, just to fit in other people's standards.
Anyway, this fear is still within me. The fear of not being able to post anything on Facebook. I just don't find it comfortable sharing.
Now I have a problem. No one will be able to read these stuff I write. If I never share, no one will ever read my writings. And marketing / sharing is very important for our blog to grow.
Today morning, I came across a blog post by Patrick Bet David called ENTREPRENEURS #1 RULE OF MARKETING. It basically explains why it's important to focus on a specific niche and audience. Your customers, clients or audience can't be everybody.
The more you funnel down, the more you'll succeed in terms of marketing a product or service.
This is both, a good news and a bad news for me. Good news is that I don't have to share my blog with everybody because I can consider creating a specific set of people who'd be interested in my work and then post it to them.
The bad news is that it's impossible to figure out who are the audience before even showing my work to everyone. So, it's extremely difficult position to be in.
I'm still thinking about it, and haven't reached to any conclusion yet.
That's it for the day, see you soon!
