Your Words Matter

I’m writing these words for you. Yes, you. The blogger. The writer. The artist. The one who pours his heart out on a computer, smartphone, or even on paper. The one who writes one word after another with the hope of inspiring change in others, motivating them with your life’s story, or even providing them with a smile.

Yes.

I am writing these words for you. The one who feels so alone sometimes. The one whose words never receive a comment, maybe a few likes. Sometimes it feels as if it doesn’t matter, right?

Be honest. How many times have you thought of giving up? Just delete your blog, try something else. It’s clear that your words don’t matter.

Well, I am here to tell you that they do. Your words matter.

My first blog… I managed to write three blog posts before I quit. No comments, no followers, no likes. It felt like writing in a diary, but then shouting the words out from an open window, yet no one ever bothered to hear me.

The Invisible Man was never my nickname, yet this is how I felt.

Took me some eight months to summon the courage to try again. This time, I made myself the promise to never give up. I think this is the definition of “resolve.”

I wrote and wrote and wrote. One word after another. Few people commented. Few cared enough to subscribe to my blog.

First month of almost daily blogging, and all I could do was 500 views. That was it. Yet, I didn’t give up.

Did I want to?

Yes. But I had made myself a promise, you see. I kept at it.

There are few things in life as heartbreaking as words that no one reads. After all, those words make up the map to someone’s soul. Yet, it’s a lot more painful when words never make it out of one’s heart.

I wrote and I wrote and I wrote.

The big secret. The shortcut. The thing that no one could ever write a how-to guide about.

It’s all just showing up. It really is. Having a bit of hope, and knowing that the worst thing in life is not giving up, but wishing you hadn’t given up.

Your words matter. Trust me. They do. Your words can make someone else feel less lonely, can teach them about themselves, can make them smile or laugh or even forget about their own troubles for just a few moments. Your words can inspire, motivate, or even bring comfort to those in need.

How many people have thanked me for my words so far?

Too many to count. Thousands and thousands. Tens of thousands, maybe.

And I’ll let you in on a little secret: when I needed it the most, when I felt like throwing in the towel, that was when someone would tell me how much they loved my words, how much value they had gotten from them.

There’s no other feeling like it. If you blog for something other than this, it’s going to be damn near impossible to stick at it long enough to see actual results.

I wrote and I wrote and I wrote.

Funny.

That’s how great things kind of come together. Not all of a sudden. Mastery is not a singular moment, but small acts put together over a long period of time. How does one build a wall? Brick by brick. How does one write even the lengthiest of blog posts? One word after another.

One word after another. That is power.

Do you realize how powerful you are? To be able to write? To share your words and stories and ideas with the world?

If that is not something worth fighting for, I don’t know what is.

Your words matter. They always did. Always will.


I know how it feels to feel powerless, to be frustrated by the lack of readers, to want to inspire the world, and yet to feel as if no one gives a damn.

That is why I want to help you have the audience you deserve.

If you wish to work together, to come up with a plan of action, to know what needs to be done to create amazing content that people will feel compelled to comment on, then you can book a one-on-one session with me here.

  2. My blog has over 350 followers, but seldom more than 20 to 25 views o any given day – and rarely more than 20 likes and often only one or two comments. But, I pour my heart out – and am committed because yes, my words do matter… even if only to one person besides myself. They “make up the map to [my] soul” – and your blog continually encourages me to keep on keepin’ on! It’s not the numbers that matter. It’s the heart of the matter! ❤

  3. ‘there are few things as heart breaking as words that no one reads…even when they are a map from someone’s soul’..heart touching and healing. I guess we need to burn and struggle to be able to give light.. with your blogs it’s getting easier to do a bit more, and a little bit more. Thanks for sharing it.

  5. Thank you for the encouragement. Sometimes I tell myself that regardless of whether someone reads my post or not, it did me good to write it—but I’m lying to myself. I want people to read it, be inspired, and comment! I’m not going to give up on that goal.
