As is wont, a conversation on Twitter today became a discussion about why I blog. Althought I'm working to build a movement here at Adriel Nation, I generally blog for myself. That's even true when I'm blogging on other sites like SF Tech Dems or NationBuilder. At this point in my career, happily, I might get an assignment here or there that isn't from my inner muse, but I do 98 percent of what I do because I want to do it. And on my own blog, that goes 100 percent, event when it hurts.
I thought it worth sharing some thoughts from Midnight in Chicago on Twitter from today that help explain why I expect to provide leadership even when following my own drummer:
Successful songwriters write for themselves. The song is all about them at that point.
Successful recording artists sing for themselves. The song is all about them at that point.
The audience listens for themselves. The song is all about them at that point.
Radio stations program songs for the radio station. It's all about the radio station at that point.
My point is that at every different level, resonance happens because of a core value.
I hope resonance is happening for you, here.
