I really enjoyed reading your response. A lot to unpack and I’ll probably come back to different parts in separate replies: one of the advantages of text-based conversation.😎
That’s why I didn’t wrap up the post with a question—it’s painful to have a question just hanging wide open all by itself out there on a platform with no responses. Ha. BTDT. Learned the lesson.
There’s a definite feeling of “I’m pathetic, no one’s answering my question” when you get no responses. But the reality is that nobody really gives a shit about it since we’ve all had posts we liked that were misses.
Why I shy away from asking a question at the end of a conversation starter is because it often gives you the false impression that you’ve written enough.
What do you think?
Remove that question and you see more clearly that your reader deserves more depth or insights shared. Or that a related article or video would be worth tracking down to share.
Not every post is shooting for the FEATURED queue. Some posts are meant to just hover in a parallel universe...
I think it’s all the same universe.
