Over the the past five years of blogging I’ve realized that certain articles are more widely read by people than others. This results in the author desperately trying to write what sells or gets people’s attention instead of writting what they want to write. So one ends up becoming in a rut since they think they should only deliver material that could be successful.

Looking at the tags that have gotten me the most views I recognize that I often have that same problem. And that when I attempt to satisfy readers I sometimes fail anyways and I end up with one or zero views. This is why I usually decide to write what I want to read instead of what may be popular. Let the chips fall where may….wait what does that even mean?
