I thought about this blog, about what it’s going to be someday and what it’s now. I thought that I’m happy to have not so many readers after this blog just had started. The reasons why I like slow success for this blog are simple.
First there is the english language. I use simple english and am not able to express myself like I do in german. If I write in german, it happens, that there is a flow… where I write and I write and I write. In english, I like to write too. But the fact that I write a blog let’s me think the hole time about if this or that sentence is good or not. So there is no real flow happening. And because that I read english websites I know the lack in my use of the english language very well. But I am not the person who corrects each sentence word for word. I just want to write. Of course, I have to structure the sentences and topics, but this is the start of my blog. Trying to be professional in any way will kill it. That was the reason why it should wait till lots of people read all of this. But over time as my english develops, and when my thoughts touch the reader, there’ll be more readers. So if you read this and this article is very new, you are special, because you are one of the early readers of this english blog.
And the second thing is the content. I am not an expert in life. I just started to find out how to get new habits which give me the power to live the life I want. So yes, I think a lot about life, how I don’t waste my time. What goals I want to reach and how I can use my time in a way I like when I look back at it. So not to have to many readers makes it easy to develop my thoughts in a readable way as I clarify them to myself, structure them and write them down in a way that makes sense.
So I like the freedom to just develop both in this blog, the language and the content. And I promise you, that in one year of time, you’ll notice a difference in language and in content. I am looking forward to it.
So to see my blog growing slowly means as well, that it grows. And that is what I want: A growing blog with more and more readers. But that can wait.
Before I launched this blog I thought about how the start should look like. I decided, to have a two month initial phase where I do not have any goals. Even zero readers would be good. But as you read this before April, 1st, there is at least one reader. You :-)
