The verdict is in.
Last week I asked all of you: “It’s been one year. Should I keep writing?”
At the end of the post, I wrote: “I won’t keep writing unless I get 100 responses encouraging to do so”
Well, I didn’t get 100 responses.
I got 49 responses. (thank you, thank you, gracias)
All – except one – were positive, thoughtful, and encouraging.
The only not encouraging response said: “you should pack it in”.
And I thought about “packing it in” but… 98% of my responses said to keep going.
The democratic vote wins… so I’ll keep writing but…
I didn’t get 100 “keep writing” responses. I only got 49.
I’m in limbo. What do I do?
I think my emails should be either 51% shorter, or my email frequency should be 51% less.
Or write 25% shorter emails and send them 25% less often?
At any rate. I’m very glad I asked the question because I got to interact with 49 of you which reminded me that some people do read my emails. Some people do care. Thank you.
But 49 is only about 1% of my subscribers. That means 99% of readers didn’t respond.
Should I keep writing for the engaged 1%?
While I think about it, I’d like to share my favorite video of the week (and probably of the year so far).
It’s a video by Bill Wurtz that explains the entire history of the entire world in 19 minutes and 25 seconds.
It’s titled “history of the entire world, I guess”. You can watch it HERE.
All I can say is: I would have paid a lot more attention in school if Bill Wurtz was my teacher.
Peace, love, and Wurtz cookies.
P.S: Random update: Just got my genetic test results from 23andMe. I’m 100% Miguel Hernandez!! – Phew.
P.2: This week’s winner of an official Grumo t-shirt is… Catherine Czajkowski! (please reply to this email with your shirt size and address)
P.3: Did you miss last week’s email? No problem you can read it HERE.
