Yesterday I was reading an excellent post by Chris Brogan, Start Fresh.
In his post he talks about how while you move forward with your career, many of your readers have stepped in half way through the narrative. They may not know where you “came from” or how and why you do what you are doing today.
Very good point.
For myself, I have been earning my living as a writer for 30 years now, and I have been publishing my online newsletter for over 10 years.
I guess a small proportion of my current newsletter readers have been with me from the beginning. But I’m sure most haven’t.
