How long does it take to get 100 followers of your blog? Six weeks? Six months? Six years?\r\n\r\nSo here’s the irony of blogging.\r\n\r\nWe write, on our own, hoping to building a community of people around our thoughts. Say one of us, one hundred others.\r\n\r\nOne. To. One hundred.\r\n\r\nHow long should that take?\r\n\r\nThe answer is, it’s not relevant, for two reasons.\r\n\r\nFirst, the community that matters first is the physical community around us. Twenty people you see face to face regularly is your community.\r\n\r\nOne. To. Twenty.\r\n\r\nHow long should that take?\r\n\r\nThe second reason is this: it doesn’t matter how many people listen if you have nothing to say.\r\n\r\nSo, better an audience of one than one hundred who don’t bother to read and interact.\r\n\r\nMaybe the community of people around you are the people who really want to know what you think, face to face, with an opportunity to respond?
