You don’t need a hit

You don't need a hit

At least not for now.

You’re just starting. A hit would definitely make you feel good. At least for a while… Not only it will turn into a burden, while trying hard to come up with the next hit, but it will also take away all the joy that got you here in the first place.

A hit worked in the 00’s and in the early 10’s, but now we’re in the 20’s. Hits changed and they are not what they used to be. How’s that? Well, if you took the long tail into consideration, the Internet makes it possible to succeed even though you’re not shooting for the head. Just take your time, do the work, find your smallest viable audience and use all your assets in order to make their lives better.

Coming back to the title, you don’t need a hit to get resources in order to continue doing your work. Instead you need to do better work in order to…

Five minutes left from this session. I feel that I should stop. In order to get things going and develop this habit (of writing 15minutes every day), I choose to keep going and write something about this process.

I use a timer. I called it writestreak 2020/the markers (this app makes it possible for you to use several timers on one screen and to also name each of them). I order to see where I started and how much I’ve learnt from this process, at the end of each session I intend to write something about the process (in italics, exactly as I’ wrote here).

I’m writing everything on my personal blog. I use WordPress with Elementor (if you would like to find more about this, I can also share why I chose this platform and how it feels to write directly here).

Also, I intend not to read and correct what I’m writing while I’m doing it (this way I keep it flow and I stop secondguessing). 19seconds left. I also added an option to the timer to show the Overtime (everything that exceeds 15 minutes, is a gift to myself).

This is my second post (yes, it’s the 3rd of April). I should have written three posts so far. I usually try conforming to the rules. Right now I’m making an exception because I really want to take this challenge.

Thanks!
