Audience

In the olden days of the internet, when blogs were new and exciting, no one had target audiences for them. No one advertised. No one carefully curated their posts as to make sure they all matched and looked just right. Hell, sometimes they didn't even have a "theme" at all!

I kind of miss those days. 

I've wanted to write a blog for so long. I feel the words inside of me sometimes, begging to come out, but I never had any of those things I just listed. No target audience, no advertisers, no theme.

Well, I'm done with that. 

Who is my target audience? I am. I need to write this for myself. Not for anyone else. Not to make money. I don't really give a fuck whether or not anyone reads it. This blog is for me. If someone else reads it? Cool. If no one ever does? Awesome.

And I need to keep reminding myself that my entire life is like that. 

It's. For. Me.

It doesn't matter whether anyone else is involved or I follow anyone else's rules. It doesn't matter if I do what I'm "supposed to do." I don't care what other people think. My life is not pretty and curated. It's messy and wild and ambitious and perfect. And I wouldn't have it any other way.
