This post is in reply to a tag from Camille, don’t you just love being tagged? Actually this one was a little different to normal tags and has actually had me thinking about it for a while. The subject of the tag is ‘who do I write for?’ and so with no further ado, let’s get on with it.
I blog, therefore I am would be a far too pretentious way to say that I simply write what is within, so I won’t say that, even if it is somewhat true (so does that make it unpretentious? – I need to get out more)
What I write depends on the context. So if it is at my livejournal account, what I write comes from deep within, it is my ‘journal’ (this post isn’t rocket science) and is used in that sense. I have always been interested in journaling but never got into the swing of it before the world of blogging, so my LJ is my journal.
I also write because I want to share, my imaginality site is my little way of sharing what I have learnt over the years at my current job. I work in a creative industry (yes, Andrew, I did struggle with calling SU an industry, but thought that keeping it vague would be good) and need to be as creative as possible. Therefore that site is where I share some creative insights.
How I write perhaps answers the tag question more effectively. I write in a style that I feel comfortable with, and I feel comfortable with who I am. I write as I live, a little cynically (I am working on that, a little is fine but it can be too much at times), a little cheekily, a bit aloof (ignorance with no desire to learn is a pet hate), but as friendly as I can be (I am not the most sociable chap on the planet [see myers-briggs INTP for confirmation] but online I find it much easier to say how I feel and share myself, and so I do).
So I think that those whom I write for are, myself and anyone else who wants to enjoy the journey that we are all embarked upon.
