Advice

I was told how to change my blog.

I needed to do this, do that, and I’d get subscribers.

But what if I don’t want them? What if I want to cultivate indifference towards subscribers? What if I want to be my own thing?  What if my goals are different?  What if I’m trying to develop my voice and be indifferent towards the adulation loop.

When people give advice, it’s generally because they are presuming that you have a goal.

Before you give advice, why not ask what someone’s goals are?
