Why Nobody Cares About What You Write
Do you feel like you are writing into a void?
Nobody cares about what you write because you do not care about what they want.
Nicolas Cole emphasizes the idea of writing with your readers in mind. He said,
“You are not the main character in your story — your reader is.”
Many writers fail to make this mind shift. They forget that their number one goal as writers should be to give value, not flaunt their literary prowess or feed their artistic ego.
Double down on your readers’ needs and address them.
Another reason is, trying hard to get their attention, only to lose it. It is good to be creative with your article titles, but sometimes you might overthink it and end up making unrealistic promises, and your readers see your title as clickbaity.
Simplicity is elegant. It is better to communicate what your article promises than risk sounding desperate.
Lastly, readers like to know that you have a connection with what you are telling them. They would pick any disconnection between the message and the man.
Tell them why you are a credible source for the insights or information you are sharing. It could be a personal experience or qualification.
I know that it feels like screaming into a void where no one listens or cares. I have been there.
But if you make these necessary adjustments and reinvent your writing strategy, if you focus on giving value to your readers — the lines will begin to fall for you in pleasant places in no time.
