Too many followers? You want to reduce them? Here is the simple Opher Goodwin guide to weeding out your followers.
Start by reviewing what most people want.
Here’s a list I prepared earlier:
- short articles
- Nature poetry
- everyday life
- inspiring quotes
- pleasant tone
I do a fair bit of that.
Here’s a list I prepared earlier of things they do not want:
- Long articles
- Political poetry
I do a lot of that. It doesn’t make me popular.
Most people do not want to think about issues. They prefer their news in short bites and would rather be distracted by trivia and entertainment.
If you believe that people are basically good but are being led astray by false news and propaganda in the media, that politics is messing up the planet and it does have to be like that. If you believe that the environment is in danger, that wars are unnecessary, that religious extremism is terrible. That politicians lie and seek power at all costs. If you have faith that things can change for the better. Then you have a moral duty to speak your mind and try to improve things, to make people think and question.
I could have an extremely popular blog just focussing on travel, photos, food, tittle-tattle and humour. That is easy to see from the stats.
I choose not to.
I prefer to at least try to make a difference.
