Thoughts on why I answer questions nobody asks

Shortly after I published about why I answer questions nobody asks, I started receiving responses about it.

Turns out, some of you feel the same way. Some of you publish blogs answering the questions in your head too, even though no one asks you them. Some of you know what I’m talking about even if you don’t publish online. Some of you are glad I said what I said because you can relate.

Thank you. I’m glad we share that.

What’s also interesting to me, though, is that we’re still a minority. Not everyone who read that post related to me. Some, no doubt, were like, “What?” Then they moved on.

I don’t get responses from them. I only get responses when someone feels strongly about something I’ve written, and even then, it’s not a sure thing. I get a fair amount, but considering the time I’ve spent here and the number of visitors who drop by, the ratio can feel super low at times. Most people don’t connect with what I write.

And that’s also why I answer questions nobody asks.
